Say anything in 2 sentences or less! Anything goes!

Asked by meemorize (324 points ) November 3rd, 2008

For an upcoming student exhibition I need to collect statements that will be printed no matter what the content and then bound into a book (non-commercial).
Everything you say is anonymous and will make it into the book—which will be made available online (Free PDF download).

So just say something. Anonymously and for the world to see.

It has been a few months and I still want a cigarette. I should have never started.

dalepetrie's avatar

Everything has been said at least once, and I can prove it.

One time, a friend actually said to me, “we got cooking oil all over that hamster.”

Said by a close friend: “Is it classy to burp at the table? I feel like since I started breast feeding, anything goes.”

I am not a trained monkey to perform for school assignments and the like. I am a person, and I have value.

Nimis's avatar

Is this for an art project or an Art project?
I think I may prefer the lower case variety.

Is it failure if the end result makes me a happier person? It is in my their eyes.

[Throws some lurve at Marina.]
Dance, monkey! Dance!
Just kidding.

asmonet's avatar

Also, from a text message:
“This proves then, conclusively, that the Hulk is anti-semetic.”

damien's avatar

When I was in school, if the assignments had included dancing monkeys, I may have listened a little more.

EmpressPixie's avatar

I have honestly never been so sad about the death of someone I didn’t know before. It speaks of a cosmic injustice that makes me glad I’m an atheist.

Say anything in 2 sentences?
Anything goes?

poofandmook's avatar

Oh for fuck’s sake.
Computer says no!

Bluefreedom's avatar

It seemed like a good idea at the time, even if I was naked.

I’d rather not describe to you where the tattoo, the bruises, the bite marks, and the case of jungle rot came from.

To err is human. To laughingly deride the one that makes the error is human nature.

@syz. I’ll go you one better. “To err is human. To blame it on someone else shows management potential.”

shadling21's avatar

This Fluther question confuses me because it says it can be in two sentences or less, but since “anything goes”, even a run-on sentences and sentence fragments will count, so my response can be as few as two words or as many as all the words in all of the books combined, minus all of the periods and strung together with “and” and “but” and “because” and “so”, so we can honestly write and write until the day is done and still not finish, unless there is a character limit on Fluther, which I heard there is but it has never been reached, even by dalepetrie, and I honestly want to try and reach the lengths of dalepetrie’s quips but I think that might be difficult since I don’t know what to talk about, but I could cheat and use some other text like “Lorem Ipsum” and fill pages with gobbledigook, but I’m not going to because the people before me are posting perfectly reasonable sentences that are interesting and bizarre, and I wonder where they got these ideas from, and I also wonder if there is any point responding to this question at all since it is not a question and it’s just going to help someone do some school project and GOD, I’m hungry, and dinner’s almost ready, but I want to keep typing to make this entry longer, but my stomach is angry at me, so I should go eat.

Done.

asmonet's avatar

lurve is the best word ever, and it has been given to shadling.

if anyone’s curious about mine incidentally, feel free to pm me.

syz's avatar

Phew! Nice!

Bluefreedom's avatar

@shadling. That’s a wicked cool run on sentence! Is there such a thing as a run on paragraph? :o)

windex's avatar

not to be an a-hole or anything, but I’m guessing your assignment was to “go out” and “Gather” different statements from different people (old/young/poor/rich etc.)
and not copy/paste answers from a forum.

Bri_L's avatar

My next sentence is false. The preceding statement is true.

Bluefreedom's avatar

Nice one, Bri. :o)

finkelitis's avatar

Tomorrow, our national soul will be reclaimed and reinvigorated from the new crucible, the new melting pot of America with her promise returned to her, her word made good, or it will rot off and atrophy, choked by fear, afraid to embrace the promise of the new era, failing us as surely as our eyes failed us in 2000 and our minds failed us in 2004. Either way, a dike will burst in my heart, and I tremble at the prospect.

I am listening to Jenny Scheinman as I type this. I can honestly say I want to make love to her and then have her sing me to sleep.

Sueanne_Tremendous's avatar

A self masturbating light. Is there any other kind?

asmonet's avatar

No, well, none that are worth a damn.

meemorize's avatar

Thanks everyone for their participation so far. Please keep them coming.

@Windex, valid question,
It is for my final design project at uni and as such we are “designing”/writing the brief/requirements as well as the outcome.
So there are truly no limits to what I do or where I gather my input from in this case as long as I later mention it in the brief.

Keep it going people. Great stuff so far!

I’ve been at work since 6 p.m. last night and it’s almost 4 a.m. here. And after finishing work at 6 a.m., I’m going to be standing in line to vote. Talk about a looooong day.

I’m young, white, female, and about to vote for the black guy, the world is pretty cool today, huh?

Awesome awesome feedback everyone!!
Thank you very much.

If we could keep this going till about 100 or more that would be even better..

You guys have anything else left to say?

Um, I don’t love him.
But I’m a guy.

Now DeadDolly is, too.

Bri_L's avatar

you mean banned?

shadling21's avatar

dd wasn’t banned.

Bri_L's avatar

oh. I was confused by Augustlan

augustlan's avatar

DD left on her own.
JA was banned.

And the question that had all that information in it is GONE! What happened to it?

poofandmook's avatar

@august: maybe it was deleted because of the part that was a direct copy of a private email Ben wrote? Just a guess, probably wrong, but a guess all the same.

Nimis's avatar

Perhaps because it is unbecoming to gossip about users?

augustlan's avatar

@poof: I never saw the part with Ben’s email…dang it now I’m curious!

@Nimis: I don’t think we were “gossiping” exactly, just pondering their fate and why they chose to leave (it turned out that one hadn’t chosen).

Nimis's avatar

I don’t think it’s malicious per se. Perhaps even something that he wouldn’t even object to necessarily. But I’d still throw it under gossip. There’s speculation on action and character. And some less than nice comments about someone who is not there to speak up for themselves.

augustlan's avatar

Ah. Point taken.

Nimis's avatar

Don’t think it ever stops.
Gossip makes the world go ‘round?

Nimis's avatar

Speaking of gossip. Have you heard about that girl Lisa?
Yeah, the really cute one. Apparently, I’ve heard, she never sleeps! ;)

augustlan's avatar

Though I think poof was referring to the first has anyone seen JA question.

augustlan's avatar

Neither does that Nimis! What is with these people? ; )

Nimis's avatar

Who can keep track of all the JA questions?
We should number them or something.

Nimis's avatar

Tsk. Tsk.

fireside's avatar

Any one who has common sense will remember that the bewilderments of the eyes are of two kinds, and arise from two causes, either from coming out of the light or from going into the light, which is true of the mind’s eye, quite as much as of the bodily eye; and he who remembers this when he sees any one whose vision is perplexed and weak, will not be too ready to laugh; he will first ask whether that soul of man has come out of the brighter light, and is unable to see because unaccustomed to the dark, or having turned from darkness to the day is dazzled by excess of light.

And he will count the one happy in his condition and state of being, and he will pity the other; or, if he have a mind to laugh at the soul which comes from below into the light, there will be more reason in this than in the laugh which greets him who returns from above out of the light into the cave.

no, because it’s without pay…?

If Asmonet has enough cash, I’d say she won. Enjoy the time off!

Just a quick update.
I have not forgotten about you guys. And I am happy to report that the exhibition and opening of the gallery — where your statements were printed live — were a huge success with over 500 people attending.
I will need a bit of a break after these past weeks of non-stop work and will update here again once the online documentation (video, pdf,..) are available.
it should not be much longer than a week or two.

Thanks again.
