    As long as desired.

    Unless you fuck it up, and mismeasure it.

    Therefore having to acquire a new piece of string.

    And start again.

    Everyone's piece of string is different lengths, depending on their mood,

    some people's you can pull at and others you can't,

    if it's taken advantage of this piece of string can get cut up into little pieces,

    but if treated fairly you can stretch it quite far, it becomes flxible!
    today, my piece of string is it's normal length,

    but that could all change depending on which way i tie it up.:cool:

    Does it stretch though before it snaps, it makes a difference if it does.

    if not then it means that the problem is in you, if it does attempt to stretch BEFORE IT SNAPS then it means you tried your best and it's someone else's fauly.

    What colour is yours? Maybe the colour may have something to do with it snaping because the spectrum highlights specific colours more which could bring more attraction to you from the sun light and make you so hot that your middle melts and....YOU SNAP!?

    EH?:cool:

    HAVE FAITH, HAVE FAITH my friend!:nervous:

    the string is what i'm survin on at the moment......it's wrapped around me like a sheild...........keep the peace with ones inner string.

    Everyone has a piece of string somewhere, if you have problems, then take it to yoga classes, that might help train it to stretch and then you won't feel like you're the odd one out.

    NEVER boast about the size of your string though if you manage to stretch it back, you won't have anyone tie it for you!:cool:

    if you are week then cable is a good idea, if you are stuck up a tree then thread is only something you should use if you wan to die, otherwise, use is on special occasion ONLY where you know you will take good care of it!:p

    you're all wrong, a string is 17 inches...

    no matter what string or how long it seems to be or anything else, it is *always* 17 inches

    although i greatly want to discuss the 17 inch theory, at the moment its still in progress and secret so i'd have to kill you if i shared, and i just dont' want to do that today.

    but it deals with the speed of the rotation of the earth, the force of gravity, why oreos taste good in ice cream and philosophical views on what reality is.

    noooooo, we're getting mathematical again...

    .......although some would say that being mathematical saves alot of stress and worry as you only speak the facts, if you converted everything in to numbers in life, then nothing would have a meaning......numbers would even have no meaning!

    And that would be cold.....

    If you need any advice on pices of string anyone...please....just ask......

    math is odd... i started hating it when they started using letters and pictures... i say math just stop with numbers, letters are for other things, and quite honestly i'm really not going to need to know the length of a triangles side... [/off topic] ;)
