    Freewill -- if it was CAUSED, how free? if UNCAUSED, how willed?

    if Ignorance is Bliss, why are people afraid of the unknown?

    You're quite right! Thanks for correcting me on that Now that I know the difference between homophones and oxymora, I will try to redeem myself.

    From lyrics to Kenny Wayne Shepherd's Blue On Black: A dead mans touch
    Wisper on a screamDoesnt change a thing
    Doesnt bring you back, yeah
    Blue on black
    Oh, blue on black
    Oh, yeah

    Remember the old poem? One fine day in the middle of the night Two dead boys got up to fight. Back to back they faced each other Drew their swords and shot each other.

    I found one of the longer versions of the poem:

    "One fine day in the middle of the night" (Journal Versions)

    One fine day in the middle of the night,

    Two dead boys* got up to fight, [*or men]

    Back to back they faced each other,

    Drew their swords and shot each other,

    One was blind and the other couldn't, see

    So they chose a dummy for a referee.

    A blind man went to see fair play,

    A dumb man went to shout "hooray!"

    A paralysed donkey passing by,

    Kicked the blind man in the eye,

    Knocked him through a nine inch wall,

    Into a dry ditch and drowned them all,

    A deaf policeman heard the noise,

    And came to arrest the two dead boys,

    If you don't believe this story’s true,

    Ask the blind man he saw it too!
