^ Re: ThunkGen released!
360336 [gmkoller gma] Alright!  Great humor!  Thunk loves it...
360337 [gmkoller gma] Thunk thinks that a couple of his best thunks are captured in his wiki
+ 360338 [gmkoller gma] "capturing the aluminum moment" is about the economic opportunities.
+ 360339 [peterhickman] Well he has posted enough for a decent corpus so maybe something based on a
  360342 [gmkoller gma] how many programmers get to "invent" a whole new way to get a job
  360343 [matt technor] There's also a Thunk in "Heroics for Beginners" by John Moore.  He was
  360344 [gmkoller gma] and who are the beginners?
  360347 [gmkoller gma] The troll rode in here looking for the answer to the question, that,
  + 360348 [gmkoller gma] ps this is the most fun the troll has had in awhile, she's off now to
  + 360367 [shortcutter ] There is no question in that paragraph.  This is an example of what made
    360372 [andrea andre] It's not. But it was very little time and it's been fun :-)
    + 360386 [usenet-nospa] Sometimes, it's a good idea to spend some time doing something that is
    + 360404 [robert.dober] What puzzles me, dear Andrea, is that in some cultures you still need
      + 360408 [gmkoller gma] this is thunkalene, no oaths being broken
      | 360428 [shortcutter ] -a-ruid
      | + 360429 [gmkoller gma] 100 percent ruby in a tight mass of dynamic power!
      | | 360431 [gmkoller gma] and, and... "reports" - are the dumb shit automatic stuffs - they need
      | | 360445 [gmkoller gma] ahhhh,
      | | 360449 [aldric trevo] "Satz" means "thing" in German. I believe explaining this single thing
      | | + 360450 [aldric trevo] Gasp! I have an itchy "Send" finger. I apologize for the typo! Please do
      | | | 360451 [sutniuq gmx.] That correct but there's a second meaning, although much less frequently

      | | |   360472 [paradisaeida] Here's a problem space which may fit the description of the thunkaTron.
      | | |   + 360474 [gmkoller gma] The original Thunkatron "problem space" was the "Is this a 'system'"
      | | |   | 360475 [gmkoller gma] and nothing has to happen to that ru'id for it to become a part of a
      | | |   + 360481 [gmkoller gma] Damned!
      | | |     360484 [gmkoller gma] ===============
      | | |     360492 [gmkoller gma] Thunk just finished this new analogy, it seems to him to hit home....

      | | |       360506 [cremes.devli] Aldric,
      | | |       + 360508 [ryand-ruby z] and you are free to stay off list with thunk.
      | | |       | 360511 [aldric trevo] I have a suggestion: all of us, including thunk, stop talking about that
      | | |       | 360512 [gmkoller gma] Aldric,
      | | |       | 360513 [gmkoller gma] and further complicating the factors is that ol'thunk is not a natural

      | | |       |   360522 [gmkoller gma] Josh,
      | | |       |   + 360527 [josh.cheek g] I don't know what you're talking about, my point is that you are spamming.
      | | |       |   | + 360531 [gmkoller gma] what the devil is thunk spamming??
      | | |       |   | + 360532 [gmkoller gma] CAN ONE REALLY "SPAM" AN IDEA??
      | | |       |   | | + 360533 [rimantas gma] There is no idea, just spam.
      | | |       |   | | | 360539 [ryand-ruby z] ...

      | | |       |   | |     360548 [tony medioh.] Whoops, uhh... yeah DNFT is a good idea.  Signing off.
      | | |       |   | + 360541 [ryand-ruby z] ...
      | | |       |   |   360542 [gmkoller gma] Dear Mr. Davis,
      | | |       |   |   360547 [tony medioh.] Does thunk remind anyone else of Louis Savain?
      | | |       |   |   360550 [gmkoller gma] Yes :)
      | | |       |   |   360554 [gmkoller gma] and

      | | |       |   |     360603 [transfire gm] How is that an answer in any way shape or form?
      | | |       |   |     360612 [gmkoller gma] It was intended as the LastLink as the lastWord is rather dull...
      | | |       |   |     360619 [transfire gm] It wasn't meant to imply anything. It was a figlet generated word
