Mouse cropped this from JS' original. Why? What was the point? I wanted to eliminate poor framing of the composition. I actually did take the original on JS' camera.

Werner lives near as you can get to the base of YPB. Yet neither he nor Merry have climbed it. He can't see the point.

The Point - 1971

I was on acid and I looked at the trees and I realized that they all came to points, and the little branches came to points, and the houses came to point. I thought, "Oh! Everything has a point, and if it doesn't, then there's a point to it." Harry Nilsson[2]

Emission.
Oh, come on. What's the point?
Maybe not so pointless, but pretty round-about way to protest. Why not just turn out some lights (unless the party ain't over yet)?

"'Just sayin'' is just the same as sayin' 'There's not much point to what I'm sayin'.'"--Mouse's pointless sayin'


And there's seemingly pointless violence which had the net effect of grossing you out while getting the point across. This is just one example, a case in Point, if I may call it to your attention.
BIOTCH. Yeah, I'm pointing at you! Gratuitously, of course. :o)


And zBrown and Tobia, remember the time when the Spanish teacher tried to tell that story about the three blind friends, one had the papers, one had the dooobie, and one drooled all the time, and so they took one of their juans and smoked one in the john with Juan and when they got done they were so stoned they couldn't remember? I can't remember how it ended, but I love that story. Awesome!

Four games, actually, muahachacho!

But it probably don't mean much, long-term. I remember how bad it felt last season, WHEN THAT HAPPENED, you bastard...

Of course it don't...it's only natural.

Werner knows what is worth climbing in Yosemite. He prolly also knows some
of the idjits who got sucked in by the YPB's line and made the Approach
