The CLAYTONS Thread


Recommended Posts

I've been meaning to start this for awhile. Sometimes I log on to the forum and go through the new posts etc and either find threads that I can not really input to as I don't have an answer or an opinion, so I don't, or threads about events in the UK or drives to Le Mans etc which I can't do either. Or likewise stuff in the US or even stuff happening the other side of my own country (4,000kms away)

So this thread is for when you have nothing to say. hrhr.gif

Now, I know someone is going to say 'but aren't you saying something now?' True, but it's about nothing really. It's just like drunken ramblings, but for when you're sober.

So I invite everyone to join in and say something when you have nothing really to say.

It's sort of like a Back To The Future conundrum isn't it? Who knows? We may be able to make this the biggest thread on the forum about nothing. getmecoat.gif

i have nothing to say.........

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.

Oh and I forgot,

IF you do have something to say, this is not the thread for it. Go type somewhere else. rofl.gif It's sort of like a paradox isn't it? I can't wait for Mr. Heath to get here. hrhr.gif

Scroll down to Claytons

You might find some other interesting stuff on there as well as to how we sometimes speak down under. For the life of me I can't find the advert in youtube for Claytons. Bummer...

Claytons was a drink. Reportedly quite bloody awful. It was non-alcoholic and was promoted by the actor Jack Thompson.

The catch phrase for the advert was:

'CLAYTONS - the drink you have when you're not having a drink.'

A paradox is a peculiar animal. It only exists when there is someone present to realise its existance.

Now, evidently, as there is nobody here (must be true because nobody is saying anything), the paradox can't exist.

Or is this venturing into the land of Occam's Razor?

But wookie, weren't you just here saying something (even though this thread is for when you have nothing to say) so because you did say something, you have caused the paradox to exist. Now if you came here and didn't say anything, then went again, no-one would know and the paradox may not exist since you didn't say anything, but you did,

SO recapping...

you had something to say even though you thought you didn't so ipso facto the paradox exists.

Another question is if we all came here with nothing to say and didn't say anything, would this thread even exist? Or did it actually exist before I even started it since it's about nothing anyway? Does something about nothing have to exist to be about nothing? detective.gif

Anyway how do we know this isn't all a dream and we are really not saying anything at all?

Well, John Douglas (molemot) has got me confused. It looks like he had something to say, but he has posted in a thread about which to say nothing. Since his post is as obscure as they come, I therfore deem it to be about nothing relevant, so therfore about nothing.

So based on that, it belongs in here. :) Unless someone has a better argument for why it shouldn't be?:rolleyes:

I think that Trevor has hit the nail on the head!

Nature, and presumably the Clayton Clan, abhors a vacuum so it will take a lot more posts of that nature to fill it.... so keep plugging away Trev! Unless of course we are teetering on the Event Horizon and our voice boxes are already a gazillion light years away from our mouths which would be producing infinite streams of nothing with no discernable effect...... :rolleyes:

I just wanted to say that it's quite rare for me to have nothing to say, Even saying that is something to say!

But this time I really have nothing to say.

You see it doesn't work! Because by stating you have nothing to say, you automatically DO have something to say, even if it's "I have nothing to say"!

This topic should just be blank!

You can't trick us by using white font Roger. MAN UP and just don't say anything!

Kimbers, that was my point previously. Did this thread actually already exist before I started it and by starting it have we actually deleted the original non-existent thread?detective.gif

Michael...Ramjet... I was alluding to the musical equivalent. Mr. Cage's opus is 4 minutes 33 seconds of absolute silence...performed on piano!!!
