RE: Does anybody whistle?
I can whistle in perfect pitch, according to people who hear it. If someone knows a tune, and I am whistling it, they can readily identify the tune. That isn't the case for a lot of people I know who can just make whistling sounds. I whistle all the time, to tunes on the radio, especially when driving alone or working in the garage. I've been whistling ever since I figured out how, when I was seven YO. My dad was also a whistler.

I can whistle (including with my fingers). Never do it, though. When in a merry mood meprefers to sing...

Dom, there is a humourous, old rhyme in Bulgaria, how someone's whistling and everyone should give him a piece of shit. My dad sometimes says it around the house. Is a joke though.

Well, I am sure I drove everyone nuts with my practicing. I was 4 or 5 and prone to getting totally absorbed in things - it must have been quite impressive for me to remember it so clearly. They probably wanted to hand me some shit and used Mother Mary instead. Tongue Like that was going to work.

I like to whistle. I can't snap my fingers though. Never could get that cool popping sound, it comes out like, well, two fingers bumping each other.

Nah, that was Lauren Bacall what said that line best!





Sexiest line ever. The inference of that line is pretty....mmmmm......special.

Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Ah, this is where it's from.

Yeah, no. I'd take a funny line, scene, what have you over a sexy one any day of the week (especially with a bozo like this. But not just).

Well, Dom, in a manner of speaking, they did hand you a piece of shit. The shit that is Christianity Rolleyes

(Even when still deluded the whole virgin mary sitting up there in heaven was something I had to... well, pretend I actually could believe in...)

From what I can remember I didn't think she would cry, I thought that was a lie. I don't think I questioned her being up there though.

I suppose my BS detector was working, but didn't realize the size of the BS.

RE: Does anybody whistle?
I like to whistle, and do in public if I don't think it'll be annoying, or if I know it'll annoy my coworkers and want to. Angel

I'm pretty good at it, but I can't hit really high notes, which sucks because the best parts of songs tend to have a high crescendo.

Life deserves a soundtrack, and I'll provide if one is not available.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

Interesting. I wonder how they judge it, or who gets to be judge and why.
