Hmmm...

I just thought I'd let you know that this post is not interesting.
Now this is interesting, and I shall explain why. Thoughts, in their individuality, are like numbers. Now every number is interesting. 'Not so' you say. Well, suppose that not every number is interesting. Take the first number that is not interesting. This number is interesting because it is the first number that is not interesting. So there you have it. I hope this has pricked your interest.

this same logic (if one can call it thus) also works on letters and words but surely there are some essentially boring words like fungus (sure they might work some folk into a sweat but the rest of us pass it off without a care) and other non sensical arrangments of letters (eg. jdonheiunhgxlpqy) after a point the random number and arrangement of letters must serve to be uninteresting and unpredicable

Ah self-reference, the stuff of madness.

Ay, Sam, but madness only because it remains un-understood by anybody but the self in question.
