The Chicken and the Road: Exploring Paradigms
    #720309 - 07/03/02 11:50 AM (21 years, 8 months ago)

The point of this exercise is to post variations of the answer to: "Why did the chicken cross the road?" as if you were one of the other personalities on this board without naming them.

I will start.


The separation between the chicken and the road is merely an illusion. They are both one. How can you cross yourself?


--------------------



The proof is in the pudding.

Actually, the answer to this age-old question was imparted to me last night by my extraterrestrial friends during one of their usual dream visits.

They informed me that the chicken crossing the road is yet another sign that proves the 12th planet is coming closer. I am convinced that there can be no other explanation for this puzzling question whatsoever.

The time is near, my friends!

The chicken's body didn't cross the road... the chicken astral projected across the road. On the other side of the road, there was a sign that read:
WATCH OUT FOR CHICKENS IN THE ROAD

"Why did the chicken cross the road?"

What a stupid question. In all my years of searching, I have never seen a chicken cross a road. You have no idea what you are talking about. Next time do some research before you post stupid questions.

How can you believe in a Chicken!! Not to mention the road. You see.... Here is a little paradox. Anyway this is not a question to put at the Mushroom Cultivation Forum!!!!!
If you want, I will answer it anyway. Actually the Egg was before of the chicken, so how could an egg cross the road. Another force (human/alien kind) was needed. Maybe some kind of 5th dimension energy. In my opinion, though, THE MUSHROOM RULE!!!

If the chicken crossed the road, that means that:
a) chickens have the ability of motion
b) roads are not unsolid
c) if a road were fluid in nature, a chicken would not be able to navigate the vessels created for this purpose.

Given the above premises, I think it is quite obvious that chickens not only are unlikely to cross roads, but also ought not to.

I mean, think about it, it's dangerous. This is a world where ministers murder golf-pros, and midgets run for mayor.

Anyway, I talked to the chicken and he said he's sorry about the whole road thing and that he'll never do it again. Chickens.

To make you imagine a chiken crossing the road over and over untill you reach an answer out of million possible answers. The action has one purpose wich is just the action itself.

Obviously the chicken did not cross the road but the road (with the rest of the earth attached to it of course) moved laterally a distance equal to the road's width. The chicken refused to actually move, so he had to move his legs in a walking motion as to not get tripped up by the laterally moving road, thereby creating the illusion that the chicken crossed the road, even though it was obviously just walking on the spot. Duh.

The way I see it there are two posibilities

1)The chicken and the road do not exist and are mearly creations of the colective consciense sp?

Or more likely:
2)The chicken had already consumed all of the shrooms in the cow pasture on this side of the road and was simply going to the next cow pasture witch just happened to be on the other side of the road.

The chicken crossed the road because it was not living an impeccable life and was killing time with it's personal folly.


Why did I cross the road?

Because I was screwing the chicken. :lol:

We got eaten alive by mosquitos but didn't notice til the next day. I stepped on some glass while wading in the swamp and cut my foot open, didn't bother me til the next day either....yeah it was a good time, ended the night by buying some liquor for minors and drinking nips and going to he diner and eating chicken fingers, and then I went home and went to bed.

I don't think the chicken specifically set out to cross the road. I think it was headed in a certain direction and just happened to come upon the road, which presented no obstacle to the chicken, and which the chicken just so happened to cross.

The chicken crossed the road because I fucking said so, so fuck off. :mad:

:lol:

The chicken crossed the road because there was a powerful force acting through him, while still giving him the illusion of being the one doing the acting.. after crossing the road, and feeling the immensity of the moment, he suddenly became aware of what was happening and what was acting through him... the world then became mightily different for the chicken from that point on.....

The chicken crossed the road because he/she sought adventure, a chance to discover something new. Whether it be the sound of screeching tires, the pain of being smashed into a pancake, or the victory of having made the journey only to find nothing or perhaps finding something so huge chickenkind could not fully understand it.

To put a better spin on possible conclusions to the question, how about asking "Why did the human blast off to other planets orbitary to his own?".
