Thinking outside the Conformity

In the prayer at the end of the forum today, the girl asked the Lord to help us "think outside the box" because that's what the forum was about. However, I wish to argue that "thinking outside the box," "coloring outside the lines," "stepping over the line," "pushing the envelope" is actually being "in the box." Everyone thinks outside the box or colors outside the lines. If you really want to be a noncomformist, I suggest you try these:

  1. Integrate a non-continuous function.
  2. Square a circle
  3. Trisect an angle
  4. Use ! as a ?
  5. Type a cent sign.
  6. Play a 13-lettered word in Scrabble
  7. Explain string theory to a child (age 7).
  8. Hang mistletoe at Easter.
  9. Drive on the left-hand side of the road.
  10. Elevate your basement.
So there you go. Ten easy things that let you color outside the lines while still being outside the box.
