    The Random Odd Thoughts Thread..aka ROTT 9th Oct 16 at 8:06 AM
    The random Odd Thoughts Thread is a thread for random odd thoughts.

    Eg........

    I think that the letter U should come after Q in the alphabet.

    It is joined at the hip to Q in words, so they must get traumatised by being split apart in the alphabet, a bit like swans wot mate for life.

    Pieces of string must get very upset, no one really cares about them, they only ever get used for analogy purposes.

    My pieces of string are very well cared for. They are sorted into different lengths, and have their own special pocket in a wall organiser.
    And they get used!

    My assorted good pokey things are also similarly appreciated.

    Now that it has been moved and locked we might never get to know who the random question thread was about.

    Actually it's about-
    Why Y asked why his X was still next to it, when U knew and showed it the V, who was late home for T.

    Eh said A I've B, we shall C said D. E it was upset, cos F had put on a Gstring. Don't drop your H called I, but alas J was off J walking with K. What the L is going on said M,pushing N, O do you mind, I'm having a P, there is a Q. Oh R so there is, I'll come back after T. U lot get back in line, where is V? Doing a double with me said W. That is Y I'm your X ZZZZZZZ

    Why does wool smell when it's wet? Do sheep smell that bad when it rains.. I've never got close enough to one to find out.

    In other languages the Q manages perfectly well without a U though.
    I see the English language U as being incredibly clingy and overbearing, I mean we all know who Q is and what it does, it doesn't need U following it round everywhere supervising! It's not a healthy relationship.
