I wonder if Freud's philosophical discussions ever degenerated so badly ;-)

And did Simon's feet in these times

Pootle upon the Welsh mountains green?

And was the holy Lamb of God

Skewered on his handlebars, seen? :shock:

A lamberick

His attempt at a wheelie a flop,
Si dallied a dead sheep atop,
He started to eat
The putrid, old meat
And shouted, "I'll save you a chop!"

A Psychling fillossifer our Dai,
Who'd been asking himself 'Would I
Fall to the ground
With an audible sound?'
Thought 'Oh, that's sheep **** I'd rather not try.'

If those sound waves do not then trigger the aural sensory system of a sentient being, then I don't think it becomes a sound, merely energy that is expended in other ways.

Rather a scientific answer to a philosophical question, but best I can do :-)


But what about the photons emitted from a match after it is rubbed on sandpaper?Are thy only light if they go in someones eyes? sorry, I mean enter the ocular system of a sentient being?

My friend from Newport, an existentialist bricklayer and the worlds foremost expert on empty landscapes, said the answer lies in the proportions of sand and cement.
