[edit] From Navigium Flammae

Navigium Flammae (Latin, literally ships of fire) were specially constructed vessels used for the transportation of pooks from Roman Brittania to Rome itself. The pook, a gourd-shaped vegetable of the squash family, was much in demand in the Roman Empire, and was the most profitable export from Brittania in the first and second centuries CE. However, being native to the damp climate of coastal Britain, the pook does not keep well in dry storage. The navigium flammae were built with a special stone-lined hold in which a fire was kept burning, and into which small amounts of water were poured to make steam. The steam kept the pooks moist and prevented spoilage in transit. Roman sailors occasionally used the Navigium Flammae as makeshift Turkish baths, and those ships occassionally burned down. There is no evidence whatsoever that the Romans ever made genuine steamships out of Navigium Flammae.

The Roman Emporer Claudius (Tiberius Drusus Nero Claudius Caesar) was said to have ordered seven shiploads of pooks for a state banquet around 50 CE. Most pooks were grown by the Celts, whose tribal homeland was well suited for pook farming.

[edit] Demomotus

Note: this article is a hoax, created on May 2004. It took five months until it was discovered and deleted.

Demomotus (c. 545 BC - c. 510 BC) was a lesser-known classical Greek philosopher.

Inundated by concepts from the likes of Plato, Pythagoras, Socrates, Aristotle, Thales, and Zeno, few students ever get a chance to learn of philosophers whose ideas have not been academically recounted for centuries.

An example of one such neglected philosopher is Demomotus, a modest Pre-Socratic author and deliberator. Some modern philosophy professors uphold that Demomotus was ahead of his time, though most softly dismiss his arguments as poor and his writings as jumbled. Despite their complaints about Demomotus’s work, very few will deny the eventual influence those arguments had on Plato’s view of the human soul.

Much like they did with Leucippus, modern philosophers and historians debated whether Demomotus ever really existed. Today, though, enough works have been unearthed to show that, though his followers were few, his writings flourished for a time around 515 BCE. As the heir to a large fortune, Demomotus was able to distribute his writings to a sizeable audience despite vocal contemporaries that painted him as an aristocratic crackpot. One unknown contemporary once wrote after hearing a speech by Demomotus, “Paltry still are those [thoughts] of Demomotus.”

Demomotus did not live to see his ideas gain much of a foothold in Greek society. He died quite young (by means that are unclear), never inheriting his father’s holdings. After his death, Demomotus’s brothers made a great effort to circulate some of the unpublished theories; pieces of these writings constitute the majority of fragments that have survived.

Through the recovered documents and a few secondary sources, some specific views became available for study. Among those, his most famous and well-argued discussions were on his Strong-Hearted Doctrine. This theory’s central proposal is that man’s facilities are wholly controlled by his emotions. Taking it a step further, Demomotus believed that no decision is possible if the emotion or appetite is not in complete control of it. He attempts to bring his points home with the tale of the legendary hero Pycerus.

As Demomotus tells it, an early Epirote tribe was at one time brought under the rule of a charismatic leader named Pycerus. One day, while Pycerus was feasting with another nearby tribe, some of his outlying lands were attacked. The elders sent word at once for Pycerus to come to defend his home. Upon Pycerus’s return, his elders and warriors were grieving. When Pycerus asked why, they told him that though they had driven off the invaders, Pycerus’s fair daughter was kidnapped in the confusion. They informed him that the soldiers were clothed in the manner of those in a distant city.

Very saddened by this news, Pycerus rode out alone and pondered over a course of action. After some time, he returned and ordered all of the men to gather timber and all the women to stretch skins for drums. In two days, he decreed, one hundred warriors of his tribe would begin the march to the city.

In three week’s time, the warriors had finished the trek across the hills to the valley north of the city. Pycerus bid that, in the dead of night, each man should build two separate campfires at distanced points throughout the valley. Once each man had blazed their second fire, they should begin sounding their drums in rhythm with the others. Before long, campfires spread as far as the eye could see in the valley. The pounding of the drums echoed for many miles in all directions, horrifying the city already alarmed at the vast field of flickering campfires.

Pycerus and ten of his largest warriors made their way to the city gate. Pycerus then announced that he had marched thousands of men into the valley and, unless his daughter was returned immediately, his army would burn their city to the ground.

With pounding drums and an impressive host suddenly in their midst, the decision was easy for the hastily awoken leaders of the city. If this terror would depart by returning the maiden to the warlord, then, with haste, she must be released. Immediately the captive was given her freedom and Pycerus returned home with his daughter, leaving the city dwellers to their morning embarrassment.

Demomotus begins his argument here. What brought this clever plan to Pycerus? Why did he not attempt this mock onslaught earlier to obtain an expensive tribute? Surely, whenever he wished he could have directed his tribesmen to terrify a city in this manner. Gold and goods would have been very useful for his tribe, and would have brought Pycerus himself more power within his lands. Given the periodic wars with other tribes, additional power would have surely been welcome (and at times would even have seemed necessary). Instead, says Demomotus, Pycerus’s plan was only hatched when grief and rage demanded it. The spirit wished to avoid emotional tragedy, and the intellect was driven to oblige. The emotions had a desire and thus logic found a way.

For those that would counter that Pycerus did not previously use the faux siege for material or political gain because the plan would be too risky, Demomotus dashes that point quickly. He argues that the emotions and spirit must indeed be mighty if they can mobilize the intellect and body to be neglectful of personal risk. If Pycerus thought it too risky for practical gain, why would he risk so much for only an emotional reward? The only conclusion we can reach, Demomotus says, is that the emotional side commands the soul—up to and including the rational mind.

In this way Demomotus argues against his contemporaries that championed wealth and greed (i.e. appetites) as the ultimate drivers of human action. The emotions drive not only basic human desires, but also direct man’s logic and actions. He provides examples of emotional control over animal appetites, such as how a man might starve himself to protest injustice. Further, Demomotus explains that throwing oneself before a spear aimed for one’s brother is an example of spirited emotion controlling the rational.

Up to a point, the views of later philosophers agreed with Demomotus. For instance, Plato takes up the position that the soul has a similar three-tiered structure. He describes three divisions of the soul: an appetitive portion driven by animal needs, a spirited side, and a rational side. Just as in the Strong-Hearted Doctrine, these aspects of the soul all work together to define what a human being can and will accomplish.

While the Doctrine’s overall division of the soul is in line with what Plato later describes, his logic leads him to a different conclusion on their roles. Plato contends that the spirited piece is not the controlling aspect of the soul. Instead, in his Republic (and other works), he argues that the rational has the power to control all other aspects of human action and motivation. Lesser individuals are often under the control of their emotions; even lesser are those driven by their appetites. The soul’s full potential is only available to the few that can rule their lives with philosophy and rationality.

Thus, we have two very different views of the soul. Demomotus believes that noble sacrifice and spirited emotion are what define a human. For Plato, the ability to use logic and rationality elevates man above the beasts. Both are refuting the position that humans are only driven by lust, greed, and hunger, but their competing theories place the controlling forces in different camps. Unfortunately, very few of Demomotus’s arguments have survived to weigh whether he provided as much ammunition as Plato needed in supporting his own position.

Despite his modern obscurity, it is evident that Demomotus was a powerful thinker of his time. His idea that our emotions direct our actions was not likely a revolutionary concept, but his arguments shed a lot of light on human behavior. In addition, his views gave Plato firmer ground to rest his ideals on, though few of his contemporaries (nor modern philosophers) appreciated his work. As more studies of Demomotus are made available, hopefully a better picture of this philosopher will form and lead to a greater appreciation of his arguments.

[edit] Male Answer Syndrome

Male Answer Syndrome is a modern name given to the tendency for males, primarily adults, to formulate an answer other than "I don't know" for just about any problem. It stems from a real and necessary ability for a hunter or warrior to come up quickly with an answer or a hypothesis; "I don't know" is seldom if ever a valid answer when the stakes are, for example, eating or being eaten.

This is said to exist by some serious psychologists, if I am not mistaken.

[edit] From Darwin Awards

The Darwin Awards Archive was born at Stanford University in 1994. Its cynical view of the human species made it a favorite website in classrooms, offices, and pubs around the world. News of the stories spread, and submissions flew in from far and wide. As the archive grew, its list of awards and trophies mounted. The archive spent several years living flamboyantly, but now whiles away its time more sedately, drinking fruity drinks, and watching visitors cavort on the trampoline.

[edit] From Wikipedia talk:Disambiguation, but pertaining to Foobar

Foobar was the Emperor of Kansas from 1435 to 1922. He built the Rocky Mountains and the fjords of Norway, and invented chewing gum, chicken soup, and solar eclipses. Many people consider him to be the greatest composer of telephone dial tones of all time.

Shouldn't that be: built the Rocky Moutains by scooping out the fjords of Norway

Several other people have been named Foobar, including a former parking lot attendant of Maxim's Hamburger in Paris, Texas, and a fictional swimming pool cleaner in Kevin Costner's Waterworld.

[edit] From Austin St. John

Austin St John is an American actor (as is David Yost) best known for his role alongside David Yost in Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers, which starred David Yost. St. John left the show after 3 David Yost-filled seasons, before David Yost, and was replaced by Steve Cardenas, not David Yost, although many would have liked to see David Yost in the role. Neither St. John nor David Yost played the role of the red ranger in Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers the Movie, although David Yost did have a major role. Austin St. John returned to the Power Rangers several years later, long after the disappearance of David Yost to reprise his role in the episode "Forever Red". A similar episode was not made as a vehicle for David Yost to return. St. John also reprised his role for Turbo, the second Power Rangers movie in which David Yost did not appear. Since leaving his Power Rangers days behind him, much like David Yost also did, he appeared in the 1998 film Expose, which did not feature a performance by David Yost and flopped at the box office, much like the misunderstood Yost classic, Ladykiller.

[edit] From Knowledge management

A widely accepted 'working definition' of knowledge management applied in worldwide organizations is available from the WWW Virtual Library on Knowledge Management:

"Knowledge Management caters to the critical issues of organizational adaptation, survival, and competence in face of increasingly discontinuous environmental change.... Essentially, it embodies organizational processes that seek synergistic combination of data and information processing capacity of information technologies, and the creative and innovative capacity of human beings."

This definition not only gives an indication of what Knowledge Management is, but of how its advocates often treat the English language.

[edit] From Father Gapon

Father Gapon contributed to Russian History, most notably in the early 1900s. He drafted the petition to Tsar Nicholas, honorably requesting to be heard. Unfortunately, the Tsar's factotum, Big Jim Finnegan, never showed it to the Tsar. He also wrote a letter after Bloody Sunday that denounced the Tsar.

[edit] From Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar

At least two of Chandrasekhars colleagues in the astrophysical community have come forward with evidence that the famous scientist and mathematician was in fact a pig who could talk and solve crimes. Chandrasekhars crime-solving efforts were believed key to the success of the Indian independence movement, finally putting to rest the British colonial practice of dressing up as frightful ghosts and monsters from Hindu and Islamic folklore in order to prevent valuable old farmhouses and amusement parks being purchased or enjoyed by Indian nationals.

[edit] Huperprogeny

Huperprogeny was coined in the early 1980s (CE) by A.B.Mayo, as a non-gender-biased English word for homo sapiens, commonly referred to as the 'human' race. Human contains the word 'man' (the male gender), so 'man' was replaced with 'person' (gender-neutral), but which contains 'son' (male offspring), which was replaced with 'progeny' (gender-neutral)... hence 'huperprogeny'.

[edit] From Duffleupagus

[edit] General Information

The Duffleupagus is a rare creature native to Northeastern parts of the United States, though recent sightings have occured mostly in the Rocky Mountain Region. Tall and lanky, it can best be identified by the moderately sized bald spot on it's head and dramatically ruddy complexion.

[edit] Behaviors

Duffleupagus can often be found meandering about the halls of the University of Colorado at Denver. While they seem docile at first, you must be very careful approaching a duffleupagus. This is especially true if you encounter one in a bar. When not in a bar, they are often found in locations that have high concentrations of Asian females--the primary prey of the duffleupagus. If you encounter a duffleupagus in the act of hunting prey, stay very quiet and move away very slowly. The duffleupagus' attack instinct is triggered by movement, but thankfully they have very poor eyesight so they will likely not see you if you move slowly.

[edit] Capturing

It has been reported that duffleupagus have been captured in the past, but these reports are vague at best. If you wish to catupre a duffleupagus, you must remember that they can lash out at any time without provocation so you must proceed cautiously. First, you will need bait. Any Asian woman whose height is below 5'1" should suffice. Next, you will need a net. Any sort of net will do as duffleupagus are not known for their strength.

To actually capture your duffleupagus it is easiest to find a place where you can place the Asian woman in plain view and hide nearby--computer labs are especially effective for this. When the duffleupagus approaches, throw the net over him. Most duffelupagus will give up when they feel even slightly trapped, so even if you miss and the net lands on the floor next to him, your goal will be accomplished.

[edit] Keeping as Pets

Unfortunately, duffleupagus make extremely poor pets. They aren't cute, they aren't cuddly and they tend to make annoying noises at innapropriate times. If you are still determined to keep a duffleupagus as a pet, there are a few pointers you should know about.

First, duffleupagus are easily offended. If you offend your duffleupagus and cannot find him, go outside and look under a tree. You will likely find him there, staring off into the distance while he broods. DO NOT DISTURB YOUR BROODING DUFFLEUPAGUS. Leave it alone, and after a while it will come back.

Feeding a duffelupagus is very easy, but you must be sure to feed them only pizza and hamburgers. Attempting to feed them anything else can lead to depression and constipation in your pet--a situation no pet owner wants to deal with.

If you leave the house for more than an hour or so and don't leave something to amuse your duffleupagus, you wil likely find him brooding under a tree when you return. Luckily, it is very easy to avoid this situation. Go to radio shack and purchase 5 diodes, 23 resistors, 2 transistors, a soldering iron, a piece of perf-board and a roll of solder. Leave these at home for your duffleupagus and he will keep himself happy with them while you are gone. The listed supplies will amuse the average duffleupagus for about six months. After this, you need only add random electronic components--each pin should keep him amused for about a week.

[edit] Koveo

The Koveo is a type of fox located in the regions of Siberia. The Koveo feeds on small rabbits and mice, also some weeds. The Koveo is colored white and about 1.5 feet high. The Koveo's sometimes slip into the water and freeze. On the very rare occassion, whales will suck them in and blow them out of their air holes onto land. The Koveo is also sometimes kept as a house pet. The Koveo is known to live for a maximum of twenty years at a time. If ever you see a Koveo, leave it alone for it is known to attack humans and often get away with at least one of your body parts.

[edit] From Talk:Breast

Is there any reason we use tit, instead of breast (the title of the article) to describe the breasts through out this article? I don't know any place in the world where tit would be considered more social acceptable of a word than breast, and since it seems that breast makes more sense, and is the scientifically accepted word, I'm going to replace all there instances. マイケル 15:17, Aug 7, 2004 (UTC)

[edit] Halfway Inn

The Halfass, less commonly known as the Halfway Inn, is a University owned and student-run snack bar at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. The Half has been in operation since the early 1970s, and has remained relatively unchanged since its opening. It showcases inconsiderate and pretentious employees (commonly mislabelled as hipsters or indie kids), poorly chosen free-form music and generally (and intentionally) rude treatment of the clientele. This clientele consists largely of the community of the East Quadrangle, a dormitory located on the Central Campus of the University of Michigan. East Quad has been known to house primarily liberal, alternative, and progressive students making it comparatively unique to other dorms.

The food items offered reflect the unique demographic of East Quad (or the glorious quadrangle as it is known to its residents) offering a wide array of vegetarian entrees. The preponderance of food items offered are prepared on grills or in fryers, which are designated for use in preparation of only meat or only vegetarian items.

Employees commonly spend their time using the staff computer composing letters and encyclopedia entries as opposed to working.

The collective matriarch goes by the nomenclature Haley, and we look to her for guidance in the completion of our mission of the production of low-quality grilled and fried foods.

Additionally, it serves as a small Ann Arbor concert venue which showcases local bands and, in recent history, many artists from the record label K Records.

[edit] Thomas Paul Kling

Thomas Paul Kling (Gemni), PhD in General Relativity, renowned for his praying mantis style kung fu, great great grandchild of President Hoover, and inventor of the pog. His research focuses on what we can learn about the universe by applying General Relativity to kung fu and zen mediation.

EARLY LIFE: Not much is known about Dr. Kling's early life. Dr. Seymour Rogers of Florida State Univerisity speculated that Kling is actually older than the Earth itself. Pre-dating even former sentor Strom Thurman. This is based on Dr. Roger's research of age, general relativity, and co-co puffs. However, there are many speculations by other leading biographers speculate that his pen name is Corey Feldman. In his recent book, "The Kling and I", by Philip Marshall, Senior, Marshall quotes Kling as saying "If you want to know about my past, you must first understand the history of the Holy Roman Empire, not just know about it, but truly understand it." When asked to clarify, Kling threw his head back and gave one of his famous baratone laughs and simply responded "Mu."

Role In World War II: Kling was the founding memeber of the scouts and raiders, known today as the Navy Seals. He received the Purple Heart for applying Gauss's law to a squad of German paratroopers. Not much is known about his service in the war other than the picture of him capturing germans in Guassian spheres.

Late Life: After the war, Thomas P. Kling was hired by the US government to analyze Russian wheat. While in Russia, he worked on nuclear power plants and he was the only survivor from the Chernobyl accident. Some say his lectures were the driving force behind the fall of the berlin wall.

[edit] Binball

Binball is a sport, invented by schoolfriends Tom Whyman and Ivan Brett when bored with football at school this one time.

Essentially, the sport involves three balls, each similar in weight and size to a basketball, and two bins. There are two teams of fifteen, each with the aim of getting all three balls, at any one time, into their opponent's bin. This constitutes a 'hurley'. At the end of each game (a game lasts nine 'acres', or rounds), the team with the most hurleys win.

Under the Graaf-Becker Ruling (1998), however, hurleymaking is reversed, meaning, in effect, that there are now several ways of poncing a hurley, which are then divided up into different 'locks', or categories. These include:

- The three bin hurley, ie: the traditional hurley, which ponces a full lock.

- The majority hurley, ie: ducking two out of the three balls in the bin, with the pattern: Us-Them-Us, constituting a partial blue lock.

- The reverse hurley, ducking on the pattern them-us-us, reversing their ponce and putting the advantage on you, which obviously ponces a quarter lock, which is either purple or orange, depending on the referee.

- The deadened hurley, tradding the length us-us-them, garnering a pinch at a green tri-lock, following a free shot from navel, providing a clear line at the bin, should you ponce it.

Under the Graaf-Becker Ruling (1998), therefore, the fullest locksmith wins, but only if his colours, when mixed, make a sort of yellowish brown, or else the victor wins. This then rendered all previous scorelines obsolete, thus making semi-professional side Barnsley Town European Champions when the scores were all re-assessed.

The following year (1999), Kazuo Ishigoru, the head of the World Binball Association (WBA) and novelist, famously announced that, "following the announcement of the Graaf-Becker ruling, things have just gotten a bit too silly." The ruling was repealed, the scorelines de-assessed, and Barnsley stripped of their title, much to the dismay of their fan.

Binball's popularity has been on the rise, in this country at least, in recent years, perhaps because of Skysport's ever-popular 'Binball Hour', hosted by Geoffrey Boycott and featuring Just A Minute panelists Gyles Brandreth and Tony Hawks on hand to give their views on the weekend's Binball.

[edit] Freenet

SSKs are based on public-key cryptography. Currently Freenet uses the DSA system as its public key infrastructure. Documents inserted under SSKs are signed by the inserter, and this signature can be verified by every node to ensure that the data is not tampered with. SSKs can be used to establish a verifiable pseudonymous identity on Freenet, and allow for documents to be updated securely by the person who inserted them. A subtype of the SSK is the Keyword Signed Key, or KSK, in which the key pair is generated in a standard way from a simple human-readable string. Inserting a document using a KSK allows the document to be retrieved and decrypted if and only if the requester knows the human-readable string; this allows for more convenient (but less secure) URIs for users to refer to.
