Cuil

The Cuil, a unit of measurement for number of steps away from reality:

“1 Cuil: if you asked me for a hamburger, and I gave you a raccoon.

2 Cuils: If you asked me for a hamburger, but it turns out I don’t really exist. Where I was originally standing, a picture of a hamburger rests on the ground.”


Read the whole thing. Especially the comment in response to the suggestion he could give lessons to David Lynch:

“The problem with David Lynch taking classes from me, is that I would find myself suddenly taking classes from him, and then blackout and awaken while lying in a field next to a Pequot wise man. I’d freak out and turn around, and David Lynch would be lying next to me, grinning and smoking a Kretek. He would produce a panflute made from the bones of my ancestors before playing the song that controls the color Mauve.

Only then, do we take the peyote.”

Apparently, this thread generated enough amusement that someone made a whole site out of it.
