            Jerry, People aren't lost, they just don't know where they are in relation to where they want to get to. I can truthfully say that I've never been lost. Yet.

            With this to pontificate, will the thread die if the thread killer gets lost??

                • That is silly.

                  If the Thread Killer is lost, how is he to kill the thread that he cannot find?

                    Your thinking is flawed. In order to be a thread killer in the first place, that person would already have found the thread he/she killed, regardless if he/she had/has subsequently lost the original thread he/she killed.

                    • hwoods got it exactly right. You can never truly be lost.

                      As for myself I always know where I am.

                      At the exact center of the universe.

                      Now wasn't that simple?

                            I would agree with that, except for that one New Year's Eve party, some ten plus years ago..

                                Me neither, but only cuz it ain't safe to do so. Not saying I am not adventurous, because I am the kind of guy who asks "Where does this road go?" and then drive down it to find out.
