    Default Foo For Thought

    The word foo itself has no meaning. . .
    So the contents of Foo have no meaning either.

    Why do I keep thinking of Fran Polek reciting from Hemingway's "A Clean Well-Lighted Place:

    Our nada who art in nada, nada be thy name thy kingdom nada thy will be nada in nada as it is in nada. Give us this nada our daily nada and nada us our nada as we nada our nadas and nada us not into nada but deliver us from nada; pues nada. Hail nothing full of nothing, nothing is with thee.

    Foo is nada. . .

    I was thinking more along these lines

    Mr Leopold Bloom ate with relish the inner organs of beasts and foos. He liked thick giblet soup, nutty gizzards, a stuffed roast heart, liver slices fried with crustcrumbs, fried hencod's roes. Most of all he liked grilled mutton kidneys which gave to his palate a fine tang of faintly scented urine.

    Interesting
    December 22, 1944: The pilot of the Allied plane was nervous. He was at 10,000 feet, over enemy territory. Somewhere hidden in the black sky there was sure to be German fighter aircraft. He scanned the darkness looking for trouble. Suddenly he saw two large, orange glowing balls approaching him. His radio operator saw them too. They didn't look like enemy fighters, but neither did they look like anything he'd ever seen.
    The balls suddenly leveled off and started following the plane. The pilot decided to try and lose them with evasive maneuvers. He put his plane into a steep dive. The objects immediately followed. Next he tried a sharply banked turn. The objects stayed with him. For several more minutes the pilot used his best tricks to lose his pursuers and failed. When he was about to give up suddenly the objects were gone, disappearing suddenly into the night. During he whole incident not a shot was fired.
    The above is a typical example of an encounter with a "foo fighter." Toward the end of World War II pilots began reporting seeing strange glowing balls flying around their aircraft at night. The objects seemed to maneuver with great speed and the Allies began to worry that the German's had developed a new weapon with startling capabilities.
    The objects were dubbed "foo fighters." because of a popular comic strip at the time, Smoky Stover. Smoky was fond of saying "Where there's foo there's fire" and the objects seem to be fiery, rounded shapes.

    The FOO cannot be defined. It can only be experienced.
    It is not a tangible thing. It is something inside that only certain people (Foo-ists) possess. It is linked with Zagness.



    Well either that or it is whatever Uber wants it to be at any given time.

    Default A. B. Giamatti might have defined the Foo This Way. . .

    "It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. It begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone. You count on it, rely on it to buffer the passage of time, to keep the memory of sunshine and high skies alive, and then just when the days are all twilight, when you need it most, it stops."

    Default Foo # 116

    Let me not to the marriage of true minds
    Admit impediments. Foo is not foo
    Which alters when it alteration finds,
    Or bends with the remover to remove:
    O no! Foo is an ever-fixed mark
    That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
    It is the star to every wandering bark,
    Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
    Foo's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
    Within his bending sickle's compass come:
    Foo alters not with its brief hours and weeks,
    But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
    If this be error and upon me proved,
    I never writ, nor no man ever fooed.
