Asian Carp: Impersonate A2Kers

 
 
Reply Tue 23 Feb, 2010 11:48 am
We need some fun around these parts right now and I want to issue a challenge to A2Kers to impersonate others here as best they can while talking about Asian Carp.

The challenge started here, issued by Gargamel, and I responded here with impersonations. But I figure we should open this challenge up to the whole site, and get some impersonation action going.

Please no meanspiritedness and don't use this thread to continue any personality conflicts and grudges. I hope we can have some good-natured fun here.

I never liked Asian carp anyway. I have more to say but this isn't the time.

Asian crap? They have a lot of that these days, all kinds of little gadgets and gewgaws, see them everywhere as I walk to the subway.

Oh, carp? That's different. Reminds me of a story in fact.

It was 1969 and I was in my hippy phase (I still am, I guess, depends on your perspective), and a group of us went camping in the woods, bringing only some flints and some knives and some sharp sticks. No, that's wrong... we brought the knives and we made the sharp sticks when we got there, cut down some fine green saplings and made those sticks sharp! So sharp that I still have a scar on my thumb from when Sunshine poked me. It was an accident. She said.

Anyway, we were up there camping (made our own shelter, made or caught our own food, oh did I mention the cast iron pans? we had cast iron pans too, we were spartan but not exactly lightweight), and we decided to do some spearfishing. We were smart, but the fish were wily. We went two days without any protein, just finding various shrubs and herbs (we did bring a wee bit of herb), and then finally, we saw it. The Fish.

It would lurk under one particular lily pad every day, gazing at us with its unceasing, ancient glare, daring us, yes DARING us to try to catch it. We tried, oh did we try. Sunshine threw herself at it wantonly (as was her habit), Thor came this close, and then finally, on the most beautiful, sparkling, blue-sky day of my life, I skewered that damn fish. Best meal I ever had.

Asianus carpio

But I am not a Latin scholar so you may want to get that checked if it is for a tattoo.

I approached the carp. She looked good.... damn good.
Loosening my belt and dropping my pants I staggered toward the beautiful fish. My pants bunched around my ankles and I fell on the ground.

I swore I heard the carp giggle when that happened. Slowly rising to my feet, I tried to gain a modicum of dignity and started shuffling toward her again, slowly now, little steps, as my pants were still bunched around my ankles.

I reached the carp. The fish batted her eyes and gave me a little love peck on the top of my head.

I was hot for action.

I'm well endowed, but the fish was in water seven feet deep and that distance would be too great to navigate. I would simply end up frustrated, with my wavering javelin harmlessly flailing the water.

I needed a snorkel.

The labored breathing of the carp sent me into a panic. She was obviously ready for action; her fins pawed the water and great swirls of hormone-laden water were kicked into the air. She let out a plaintive wailing sound, a sound that seemed to be saying, "Get a snorkel ...quickly!"


*this one's more of a rewrite than impersonation. It was just too perfect to improve on much.

Enter the PHP Perl extension. It requires PHP 5.0.0 or higher. On my UberUbuntu system, I installed libapache5472-mod-php5, phlp5-cgi and some other useful php5 modulars (php5-gd, php5-xsl, php5-mysql). You also need libperl-dev and php5-dev, which supplies the commands phpize and php-config. Download the extension from this link, unpack and follow the instructions in the READMENOW.

Enable "extension=perl.so" in /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini, restart Apache"dont call me The Chief" and you’re Set. You can now access Perl code and variables from within PHPblah5.

Anywho - if you have any further problems, please use contact us

Ah, Asian Carp, a favorite. I once gave a whole day course on the use of the Asian Carp in urban architectural design, where the Asian Carp in general have played an important role. I first got all interested in major Asian Carp history, but with more reading, came to appreciate the simple, Carp-like spaces that pop up in older cities that were built using the Asian Carp as a template for their layout. I'm so keen on the use of Asian Carp in architectural design that I'd like to raze part of my present neighborhood (endless tract) so that people had a Asian Carp sort of place to walk their dogs to, go buy an ice cream at ... or maybe a coffee, glass of wine, whatever, meet their neighbors, and so on and so forth.

I've not seen a live Asian Carp, at least that I remember, but I almost named Pacco "Asian Carp," until I found out it was a heavy-bodied cyprinid fish. What I do know is that more an more Asian Carp are being eaten here in the US, or at least they were being eaten in California when I lived there.

There's a push to call the Asian Carp an invasive species, but it's the one fish that has given me pause re banning, what with all the uprooting of vegetation through their habit of rooting in the mud for food. That was a posited choice. The other choice could get ugly.

But banning the fish, I can understand that too. But I'm just an early poster, others have their opinion.

Asian Carp used to be available at a market near me. Expensive, so I didn't get it often, but I liked it.

I also like canned Asian Carp with olive oil, but my market here doesn't carry it.

Back in a bit with some more links.

I do think the Asian Carp has value. I can also see not liking it at all.
Back with a link or two, however weak.

cognitus interruptus

February 23 675 up, 263 down

buy cognitus interruptus mugs, tshirts and magnets

A disruption of the normal thought process, normally by an external distraction. This occurs most often at times where mental focus is a necessity. Cognitus interruptus sometimes leads to procrastination, leading to further cognitus interruptus and creating a cycle. Not to be confused with coitus interruptus, which is something entirely different.
Constant cognitus interruptus in my classes kept me from passing finals.

CARP " holey schmoley, do excuse my unfortunate lexiconigraphical errors " I thought you said CRAP! Just reelin' ya in Cool
