    The best definition of time I’ve heard so far: “Time is what keeps everything from happening all at once.”

    The first Thursday of every month is when a very local restaurant (perhaps a minute’s walk away?) does one of their signature dishes, assiette de tête de veau aux légumes accompagnée de sa sauce maison. Other than that, Thursday’s aren’t anything special… (and yes, those légumes typically include pois, which fortunately have not been known to attack any customers — or nearby residents! — for several months now).

    @ blf, # 5: POIS-are you referring to Post Orgasmic Illness Syndrome? That’s the only thing I could find when searching on “pois.”

    For us dull grownups, Thursdays are a boring obstacle on the road to the weekend.
    But when Carl Barks was the creative genius behind Donald Duck magazine, it was sold on Thursdays in Sweden ( I think it still is) and I always looked forward to that day.
    Having him shake up the imagination of children was a good thing, it is impossible to prove but the stimulation during those early years probably made me more open for ideas.
    Today kids are so bombarded by new inpressions that they probably cannot imagine the relatively slow pace of stimuli in the 1960s.

    So basically we are on a long train ride. The rail stops in Fargo and Peter Stormare waits for you with a wood chipper.

    I never got the hang of thursdays

    @16 I like to think of it kind of like this. we are in a line waiting to get in to a show. We do not have to rush because the show wont start before we get in. The joke is the waiting in line is the fun part any show coming is just our dreams (dream time?) the real part is the waiting.

    Yes, Thursdays come every week. Like clockwork. It’s inevitable. The relentless march of the Thursdays. All make way for Thursday whether you want to or not.

    I’m good with any version of Hazy Shade of winter ❄️But this is my favorite! Thursday is almost over ! Then it’s Friday

    christoph@6, Pois are typically small green alleged-vegetables with no taste or discernible texture, a violent disposition, often snarling with huge teeth, and occasionally in alliance with the evil equine empire. Once safely killed they can be eaten, but still have no taste and a weird void for texture; famously split into bits to make green goup, I mean green soup.

    Well, it’s Friday now. Time to be a hero and rescue some wine trapped in a bottle.

    I forgot to give him a sacrifice. That explains the lousy weather we had today!
    Since Odin is supposed to be a god of wisdom (he is a god doing shamanistic practices who visited the underworld) maybe he can help us convince people to take the vaccines. If we give him a sacrifice big enough.
    Maybe we should take a page from Loki’s book in American Gods* . Instead of throwing a spear across a battlefield, you just go to an IC unit full of anti-vaxxers and say “I dedicate these deaths to Odin!”
    *The novel. I don’t know how they did it in the TV series.
