    Pila breaks into a story...

    Pila Mulligan: well, how about a little (true) story?
    Threedee Shepherd: perfect
    Pila Mulligan: when I was younger I used to enjoy swiming out in the ocean
    Susi Alcott: _/!\_
    Fael Illyar: sure, go ahead :)
    stevenaia Michinaga: ...listens
    Pila Mulligan: a favorite place was about 500 yards or so offshore from a popular beach
    Pila Mulligan: the water was fairly deep there, but it was clean and usually had good visibilty ...
    Pila Mulligan: one day while I was swiming there a humpback whale came along, they are common in summer
    Pila Mulligan: this one was a big adult, and I was treading water, watching the whale
    Pila Mulligan: it swam up fairly close, about twenty feet away then it lifted its head up to the surface and lowered its tail downward, swishing its tail slowly ...
    Pila Mulligan: it took me a moment to see that the whale was imitating my treading water posture :)
    Pila Mulligan: [the end]
    Fael Illyar smiles 'Fun story.'
    Corvuscorva Nightfire grins.
    Corvuscorva Nightfire: thank you.
    Susi Alcott: _/!\_

    The topic of expectations and change arrives...


    Threedee Shepherd: No there is a good topic, are there really some *things* that never change?

    Pila Mulligan: Threedee, something that never seems to change: the occurrence of unexpected events
    Susi Alcott: _/!\_

    Corvuscorva Nightfire nods..I was thinking..the changingness of the world is constant
    Stargate Tone: *sigh*
    Stargate Tone: so true
    Threedee Shepherd: Ahh, we immediately get to the need to define "thing"
    Fael Illyar: It's what makes life interesting :)
    Corvuscorva Nightfire laughs.
    Susi Alcott: maybe also 'The Thing' :)
    Fael Illyar: just imagine how it would be if nothing expected ever happened :)
    Susi Alcott: how many here now knows 'him' ?
    Fael Illyar: um, unexpected
    Pila Mulligan: as in 'The Thing That Never Changes' susi?
    Threedee Shepherd: If nothing expected never happened, nothing would be expected
    Susi Alcott: well; that The Thing never changes; as it's a hand in Adam's family :)
    Fael Illyar: Three, yes, was supposed to be unexpected there but ... I'm a bit sleepy here :)
    Threedee Shepherd: The Thing in Addams family moves, tht is change
    Susi Alcott: yet it's 'always' changing, cuz it's doings were always unexpected
    Susi Alcott: sure not anymore when one has seen all the parts of the serie
    Pila Mulligan: ... and if nonthing were expected then nothing would be disppointing :)
    Susi Alcott: to me it was the best charachter of that serie
    Susi Alcott: _/!\_
    Stargate Tone: neither there would be any 'presents from Life'
