- For more Useless Articles, see Uncyclopedia
Useless articles can be found everywhere in the material and the spiritual realms. UA's can be concrete, abstract, granite, far fetched or closely related. Some you can obtain for free, for others you must pay dearly.
Useless articles can be very dangerous when nurtured, but are relatively harmless when left alone. A person spending too much time with too much UA's, might overdose, causing him or her to implode into a useless person, full of useless knowledge; his or her useless time spent on useless things and useless actions. These unfortunate people are likely to become politicians.
As useless articles are everywhere, in streets, shops and peoples homes, on television and in all publications (electronic or otherwise), it is very hard not to become occupied with them.
Strangely enough:If you blow up a useless article, you sometimes get useful particles!
The origins of Useless Articles are lost in the mist of time
The philosophical attitudes towards useless articles range between
1: The negativistic standpoint: - All articles are useless,
2: The positivistic standpoint: - No article is useless,
3: The uninteristic standpoint: - Who cares?
We ourselves see it this way:
A hammer (for example) is a conglomerate of wood fibers and metal crystals. Wood fibers and metal crystals are conglomerates of ditto molecules. Ditto Molecules are conglomerates of atoms. Atoms are conglomerates of particles and particles (besides being the result of blown up articles), are conglomerates of ..... what? We don't know (yet). Ergo: If we don't even know what a hammer really is (yet), how can we make any statements (yet) about it's uselessness? At which point someone might object:
"But you know what a hammer (for example) is! You can see it, touch it, use it..." At which we will Sneer & Reply:
A hammer is something we perceive with our senses. But what is perception, what is knowledge? and above all: who or what is it that percieves, knows, uses? We don't know. It is a mystery. Then how can we say anything sensible about something like the usefulness of a hammer (for example)? We just don't know and we won't even be able to know it WHEN we know it.
The use of this argument often results in said hammer swiftly making contact with the arguer's head.
Why a hammer as an example?
If I had a hammer (for example),
I'd hammer in the morning
I'd hammer in the evening
All over this land.
Food for thought
- A hammer (for example) is very useful for bending nails and breaking things. Again, for a thousand other purposes (like sweeping the floor, kite flying or repairing your ipod,) it is totally useless. Does this imply that a hammer (for example) is 99,9% useless?
