When I was cutting the bamboo back this weekend. It was a replay from the opening scene of "The Gods Must be Crazy".

As I got to the thicker stalks, I had to walk fairly deep into the grove. Ahhh! A nice thick stalk, 17 feet tall, 1 inch in diameter. Snippers ready, *cut*! The lovely stalk, still fairly green but beginning to turn brown, *bonked* onto my head and released the most beautiful, haunting, single note. A hollow, resonant note. As soon as it *bonked* my head it fell to the ground and I just stood there staring at it. It had made a musical note!

"Oh my gosh! This is how the primitives discovered their musical instruments!"

Oh well, it was a glorious moment for me. Call me simple, but I'll never forget that one, single note that bamboo stalk made from bouncing off my head.

I love that movie, too! ;D Nance, I am wondering, too, if maybe you cut a few more stalks to see what sounds they made?

This tickled the heck out of me! The mental image was priceless!!!!!!!!!!!!! And what a cool mind you must have to be able to think of something like that, instead of just being mad that the **** thing bonked you on the head!

Well I have to say I had a TOTALLY different idea in mind when I read the title. You weren't naked when all this happened, were you? ;)
