Auto-ejecting Intumescent Eutectic Stop Motion Duvet Rocket

A new form of realisation that nothing actually worked after all, no matter how much effort was expended in the pursuit of any of it. Back to bed, then, as we’re all tired. Therefore, an ejection mechanism is needed. How to get people out of bed. Duvet know? It’s crass, miss. Visually recording the appearance of the wind across a gradient of time, a stop motion trace of the cooling of coffee held up by the tumescent tent of hope may or may not give rise to the obvious pointlessness of trying. Never having put much effort in, because it’s hard, leads to the illusion that because one does what one is good at, one is good at it. More hard work would have helped earlier on, but then, as we realise, nothing actually worked after all, no matter how much effort was expended.

       You took the words right out of my mouth. But I had them in a comprehensible order.

       It’s surprising how important that sort of thing turns out to be.

       Unless you're James Joyce. Or indeed, particularly if you're James Joyce.   

       And then again, perhaps not.

       Rats tick past, the dying scissors of remorseless snow.

       I wish that were a palindrome.

       It is - you're just reading it wrong, [Ian].

       //held up by the tumescent tent of hope//   

       Is that a morning-wood reference?   

       What's with all the word salad recently? Is the halfbakery devolving? Will tomorrow's idea consist of a series of grunts?
Voice, Jan 16 2016

       [Voice] eh?

       According to [Ian]'s current theory, there is no Halfbakery and, indeed, no grunts.
MaxwellBuchanan, Jan 16 2016

       There is nothing.
pocmloc, Jan 16 2016

       I am beginning to wonder, actually, if [Ian]'s alleged solipsism is not just laying the groundwork for the defence in a massive tax evasion trial.
MaxwellBuchanan, Jan 16 2016

       Not that massive — there was no money.
