100 Days Experiment

Starting March 7th between 4-4:30pm Eastern I'm going to begin an experiment on Twitter.  Every day for 100 days straight I'm going to tweet a Leonard Cohen song lyric.  Not just any lyric will do though.  There must be rules for this kind of thing.

The Rules


  • Duration: 100 days straight (no gaps)
  • Timing: tweets will be sent around the same time every day
  • Focus: same songwriter (no intermixing songwriters)
  • Writers only: doesn't matter who performs the song
  • No titles: lyric cannot contain the song title or any significant words from the song title
  • Significance: lyric should have some poetic, lyrical, political, or social significance
  • Simplicity: lyric is presented by itself without commentary, quotes, or other affectations
  • Accurate: lyric is presented exactly as the writer wrote it without paraphrasing or tweet hacking
  • Hashtagged: only allowable embellishment is the hashtag of #100daysofcohen 
  • Retweetable: maximum length of tweet including hashtag should be around 125 so that it can be easily retweeted
  • Breadth: As much as possible the collection should cover the breadth of the songwriter's career rather than just one period

Great. But an experiment needs a hypothesis to attempt to prove or disprove. What's the hypothesis in this case?

It is consequently best if mothers-to-be make preparation early and purchase needed goods such as nursing pajamas, perfectly ahead of childbirth, as later they may possibly not have a great deal time! Purchasing can be entertaining specially if you can do it from the ease and comfort of your house. But if prepared for properly, experienced nurses should be able to perform well at an interview for a job as a traveling RN. You need to have good comprehension skills so that doctors and nurse managers do not need to repeat instructions.
