Please check out this poorly punctuated article, and let blood preasures begin to rise. :-)

My blood preasure certainly has risen...
...and so has my blood pressure! (which is far more serious).

High Weird is a more catchy expression I find.
Indeed, my blood pressure is naturally high - for which I take tablets! Can artery-walls be strained metaphorically however?

Meditation is quite good for the blood pressure.

I am not sure if that is High Weird or New Age Weird though?

I am sort of in a Post-Weird phase myself, which means I like my Weird fried not stirred.

Yes, weird is a weird word, because (incredibly) you can use it to replace every adjective and noun and past participle in both the English and Old Church Slavonic languages.

I've got my iPOD, so I don't care anymore.

What's iPOD? Sounds like a drug of some sort. And do you have to spell it with a small i and a large POD? It is a chemical I guess.

It's a small, human-sized capsule, Brendan, that you lock yourself into and experience sensory deprivation for periods as long as two weeks. It serves you food inside and it has limited locomotion, so you can perambulate inside of it in the front yard.

No wonder you are happy! I particularly am intrigued by the fact it is both small and human-sized. . . . I would consider getting one if it were not for the fact that my natural state is one of complete depravation of sense.

Was it 'Weirdpussy' that did it for you, Alice?

Hey, guys, I'm just posting this because the message count on this topic was "666" and it freaked me out.
