pair of pants
Once again I find myself strung out from days on end lf sleeplessness. One of the little ancillary benefits of my lack of sleep is I have these mini epiphanies which usually occur just moments after I 'snap out of' having stared at a blank computer monitor for 45 minutes, which I tend to do occassionally do at 0230hrs, particularly when it was precipitated by 2 days lacking of prior sleep...
So todays mini epiphany was this:
Pair (or "set") of headphones.
Not really a pair (or "set") ... is it?
I'm telling ya'... your not going to realize the genius of this little useless epiphany until your strung out enough from sleeplesness.... then you'll have a 'moment of clarity' where it will just make total sense how vitally important this is to the fate of the world Think of all the millions of times people have uttered the words "Hey Bob, hand me that pair of headphones".... but what Bob handed you wasnt really a pair, nor a set, now was it. Ah ha. You were cheated! Oh the tragedy. Man... the nuggets of genius to you think of when your deprived of sleep.
Of course, I just may wake up in the morning and realize that the phrase "pair [or set] of headphones" actually makes perfect sense... in which case, that would be very embarassing for me having written this message.... but I'm not going to delete this anyway... because it'll serve as a lesson in why sleep deprivation is detrimental to your mental faculties.

I can imagine that a monaural headphone would have been invented before the popularization of stereo, like an old telephone reciever, but a pant?
I've gotta go to the store and pick up a couple of pears. (wocka wocka)
