The Topic: A Theory

Good evening, Askees.

I have a theory. My theory is that my inability to end up being posted seemed to begin when the length of my questions became somewhat extreme. My theory is that there is more than a casual correlation between these two factors... I theorize that by attempting to go into greater detail with my questions, I have, in fact, become terribly, mind numbingly dull. As a result, you have ceased posting my ramblings to try to ensure that you don't drive away casual readers who are merely in search of a quick laugh.

Am I correct?

Thank you for taking the time to read this even if it doesn't end up being posted, and keep up the good work.

No, that's really not it at all. You see, I'm going to tell you a story. It seems that once there was this young man, fresh out of college, who wanted to get into big business.

Jimmy James
He took his last $50, bought a bus ticket to New York City, and went right down to Wall Street. He found the tallest, most impressive building he could find, and went inside, and I mean he was just awestruck. Marble columns in the lobby, exotic plants, those big soft couches, you know what I'm sayin', right there in the lobby.

Jimmy James
Well, he gets in the elevator, and guess what, the elevator jams between floors. And he's stuck in there with, wouldn't you know it, the CEO of one of the largest investment firms in the state. Right there.

Jimmy James
And you know what happened to that kid?

Jimmy James
Well, the mechanics got the elevators working in about 5 minutes, and I think he ended up working at Arby's.

Do you see my point? Well, that's right, there isn't any. Just like there's no point in wondering why your questions aren't answered. So don't do it.

I'm glad we had this chat.
