9/11 CT believer: It's only a hologram of a chicken. Get this through your thick, skepttcal head: THERE IS NO CHICKEN! A real chicken could never cross the road that fast.

I think the chicken is a terrist and is crossing the road to spread her eggs of mass destruction amongst her fellow Enemies of Freedom [TM]. Off to Gitmo!

Me: Shouldn't we establish whether the chicken crossed the road the first time before we talk about re-crossing?

Me: To teach the road how to cross itself.

Me: Superposition of two reasons, the correct one will not be known (in fact, will not be true), until we learn how to speak chicken and ask it. The possible reasons are:

1) Any discussion of "Why?" must always trace back to the reasons why any established previous events occured in order to present a complete answer. This leads to an infinite regression to the beginning of everyone, or infinitely backwards in time if there was no beginning. Either way, it's turtles all the way down.

2) We can establish that at some point in the past, the chicken was on the other side of the road, and that now it is on this side. We cannot, however, confirm that at any point it was actually crossing the road. Therefore, the supposition that it crossed the road is faulty as long as macroscopic quantum tunneling is a possibility.

"Because he came from monkeys, so he had no moral guidebook to tell him not to cross roads.

But that's how it is in the fanciful land of the poultryist."

Penn Jillette: CHICKENS DON'T CROSS ROADS, ASSHOLE! Even if they DID, it wouldn't be because of the reasons you give!

Me: I'll be honest... I don't know whether chickens cross roads or not. All I can say is that the believers's answers are really, really stupid.

Two years, congrats!!

Creationist: "Could someone just explain this one thing to me, please? If the chicken already crossed the road, WHY do we still have roads?!"

By the way, big ups for the douce years (I'm trying to sound more "street").

Larry King:

"Because he didn't know you just have to see my show to get in touch with "the other side"."

No matter why the chicken crossed the road, Nostradamus PREDICTED IT!

He said "72 the white feathers,
"Arrayed on one side of the dark river
"The weary traveller takes up his cross
"When the giant leaves in sorrow"

72 - 2007, February.
The feathers are obvious.
The dark river is obviously a reference to the road.
It even talks about travelling and crossing.
The last line can't be anything but another reference to 9/11.

The guy was a genius. Deal.

I know it's a little late, but congrats on the two years.

Now, back to the regularly scheduled programming.

Pseudo-quantam idiot:
"Because I chicken in Vietnam crossed the road, and this one was linked to it via quantum mechanics." *Runs off before this can be refuted.*


If you keep up this unscientific nonsense, I am going to put a bullet into your head. And yes, this is a threat!

To the poster "Gunfire", also posting as "Surani" at IP

One of my rules for posting here is that you do not post with different names - known as using sock puppets. Do it again and you will be tossed.

You are free to post here but not to post threats, even silly ones like the above. Don't be a jerk.

This has been your one and only warning.

"Who needs courage when you have... a gun!" -Professor Farnsworth

To hide his weapons of mass destruction and to have a meeting with the Al Qaeda cell on the 'other side.' And the 62% of Americans that agree with me are all chicken-loving terrorist traitors.
(Not sure who wrote it, but signed 'GWB'.)

Congrats on 2, hope I'm around when you hit 10.

why did the chicken cross the road?
'Cause I prodded him with my electric goad.
