I opened the dictionary to find the definition of nothing. The page was missing.

Delving into deeper forms of NOTHING, we come to a study about Doing Nothing:

Doing NOTHING is a form of Decision Avoidance from reason and emotion.

Several lines of research bear on the question of why individuals DO NOTHING

Four decision avoidance effects of doing NOTHING is choice deferral, status quo bias, omission bias, and inaction inertia. These findings of effect are related by common antecedents and consequences in a rational–emotional model of the factors that predispose humans to do NOTHING.

Prominent components of the model include cost–benefit calculations, anticipated regret, and selection difficulty. Other factors affecting doing NOTHING are anticipatory negative emotions, decision strategy struggles, counterfactual thinking, and preference uncertainty.

Now, don't you feel better with this understanding?

The only problem I have with doing nothing is I can't tell when I am finished.

Wait; I just realized that my wife lets me know.

Every time I go looking for Nothing, I always find it.
Sometimes I even find it when I'm NOT looking for it.

Everybody complains about nothing but nobody does anything about it.

You Can't Write a Poem about Nothing

this is a poem
about Nothing

but in being about Nothing
it is about Something

this is a person
walking Nowhere

by walking Nowhere
their endpoint will be Somewhere

this is a child
with No One

once this child outgrows No One
they will find Someone

everyone in this world
gets caught up in the Now
in the Nothing

but what people need to see
is that if you look a little deeper
a little in the future
there will always be Something

I think Dylan needs to pass over his Nobel Prize for Literature. The prize committee obviously hadn't seen this.

I must say that's an excellent poem, Bo, and that's not nothing.

There's an incredible topic drift in this thread.

That's impossible. If one drifts off-topic then it has nothing to do with the topic, which means it's on-topic. Winking

Bill: "What are you doing Steve?"
Steve: "Nothing"
Bill: "how do you do that?"
Steve: " You log on to the STEEL GUITAR FORUM go to the Humor section Post on the "Nothing" topic."
Bill: "Why would you go to all that trouble?"
Steve: " 'cause I ain't got nothing to do so when I got nothing to do I do it!"
Bill: "You Steve I am begining to get an insight to why you took up playing the steel."
Steve: "What do you mean?"
Bill: "Aw nothing."

There is nothing about this thread that interests me.
This makes it very relevant and now I must post it to relay that info to everyone.
I do believe I just confused myself....... Rolling Eyes

We shall be celebrating this post's 10th anniversary in July.
We must think of something special for the event.


....or maybe NOTHING.
