Dense space fills the lacuna between us. It’s thick shadow haunts our bodies leaving us emotionless harsh and cold. The density compacts our bodies leaving us numb and fragile.

Dense is not floating, but drowning to the bottom of the pool. you have a lot more work to do if you’re dense. good luck

The denseness of the flesh of the Honeycrisp apple surprised him as he eased his butcher’s knife through the varying diameter of its body. Still shaken by the rusty blue pick-up truck clipping his dog earlier in the afternoon, his hand was unsteady. The black carbon handle of the knife, which he had just rinsed in the double-basin stainless steel Kohler kitchen sink, was wet. The ball of his right hand, located just below where the index finger joined his palm, was the primary source of pressure on the top side of the knife handle. He leaned into the motion and pressed down harder. His eye twitched. His nose tingled. He sneezed. And then, unknown to him, his hand pressed the knife down through the apple and the index, middle and ring fingers of his left hand. The world seemed to freeze in place as he stared down at the grotesque animated still life depicting two halves of an apple laying open on the antipodal points of what used to be a whole apple, three detached fingertips aligned behind the left half apple and a pool of blood seeping across the backdrop like anti-gravity curtains in an upside down theater.

For homework we have to guess the density of stuff on our desks at home. It says: Choose three items from your desk and estimate their density. I don’t have a desk at home. I thought I would just use some of the crap on the kitchen counter, but then I realized people would think I was really weird if I had NAPKINS, BUTTER, and EMPTY PICKLE JAR in my room. Science sucks.

Trees and water are dense. Some things have density in the scientific sense, but also in Harry Potter it is used as an insult. By calling some one dense, you are calling them stupid.

Dense is a word that I’m having a problem understanding. I have only heard people use it talking about water or fog. “That water is dense.” “The fog was very dense this morning.” The definition is crowded or closely compacted.

crowded, a lot of population.

Well, people can be really dense. As in stupid. Dense can also refer to density, as in how dense something is. I feel lke a bit of a dictionary, just spouting off what it means. But I’m in school; it’s what I’m trained to do. Grr…I’m used to typing on my iPhone with autocorrect and stuff and it usually puts in apostrophes for me. How much longer do I have left? I’m pretty sure its been more than sixty seconds. Maybe not, though. Are there supposed to be more r’s in grr? Whatever, I feel so ADHD right now. I keep bouncing from topic to topic even though I’m supposed to be writing about dense stuff.

Jensen lay there in the sand and occasional leaf and tried to catch his breath and figure out exactly what just happened. It was warm and humid and he could feel sunlight warming his back. And off in the distance he could hear voices, but he couldn’t quite place their meaning.

Thick, not very bright, stupid silly, all the things that come to mind when you say a person is dense. Ignorant implies a lack of education but dense is just naturally stupid.

Water is dense. I actually really hate that I received this word. I have no clue what to write about. I feel like an idiot. All I can think of is one thing. Science. Then my head goes blank. So I really don’t know what to keep writing about, but I can tell you one thing. That by the time the timer goes off, this writing won’t be very dense in meaning. In fact, I think there will be many many errors. In grammar.

I couldn’t step through it. My eyes widened in amazement. Here I was, standing on water, but it held me up. I thought of maybe trying to get in deeper, but the liquid wouldn’t budge. Was it the density? Was I lighter than it? Was it magic? What was this? I was suddenly afraid of this liquid, and most of all, I wanted to know where I was.

Everything is so dense. Nothing is empty. Everything floats. Nothing Sinks. If everything sunk, we would have nothing. Density is the main base of existence.

To be dense is boring and no fun for people and makes them feel and look weak.Dense is kind of dull and boring.

HEAVY, DUMB, THICK. DENSE SOUNDS LIKE DUNCE. DUNCE CAP. CAP AND GOWN. BALLGOWN. BASEBALL. HOCKEY. PUCK. GLEE. SINGING. CHOIR. HIGH SCHOOL. GRADUATE. JOB. MONEY. CAR. INSURANCE. APARTMENT. BILLS. ADULT. WHISTFUL. LONGING. FUTURE. SCARED. BOYFRIEND? MARRIAGE? KIDS? WHERE? WANT. NEVER GONNA HAPPEN. SAD. WHY NOT ME? WHAT’S SO WRONG WITH ME? NOTHING. THAT’S WHAT. “JUST BECAUSE SOMETHING ISN’T HAPPENING FOR YOU RIGHT NOW DOESN’T MEAN IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN.” I HOPE YOU’RE RIGHT PIECE OF PAPER ON MY DESK. I HOPE YOU’RE RIGHT. WHY AM I STILL WRITING? WHEN IS MY 60 SECONDS GOING TO BE UP? THIS SEEMS LIKE FOREVER. BLUE. CARROT. MMM. THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I GO ON A TANGENT. AND I STILL CORRECT SPELLING/PUNCTUATION. OH YEAH. LIKE A BOSS. FFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUU. SERIOUSLY. THIS CAN’T STILL BE GOING. ARGH.

people are dense. they are massively dense, and intellectually dense, but in the same way…unhealthaly overweight…
By casey on 09.28.2011
the denseness of life started to weigh me down as I moved from place to place. I felt heavier and heavier as time passed, until I realized that the only thing weighing me down, was worrying about what other people though. Now I walk with a spring in my step and the wind at my back, light as a feather.

“God, you’re so dense!”
She didn’t so much say it as slap me across the face. To be fair, I didn’t really know what she was talking about.
“Haven’t you realized it by now? The constant glances, giggling and looking away when you saw?”

dense is something thick, maybe even strong. yet some people can be dense. these people are so called my friends. they pile up their problems without letting them out, making them dense.
By kiara Thompson on 09.28.2011
Dense is a weird word. It reminds me of Denzel Washington. It is deep. Dense is the blonde girl in algebra that shouldn’t be in algebra. Oh wait, that’s shallow. Or is it dense? Dense is in the dictionary I’m positive, but I unfortunately do not have time to look it up at the moment. Maybe I will later, or not. Probably not though, but it is a pretty dumb word.

Thick. Strong. Creamy, Soft, Hard. Dense is such an obscure phrase. It is one which I often hear used to describe a person short on braincells…but doesn’t dense mean something in plentiful supply? I suppose if you read into it too much you’d feel dense.

the forest and jungle are very dense. dense meaning hard to see through.

Thick, intruding, squash, compact and tree trunks. Moist, mulchy, thick. But foolhardy, perchance not fully grasping. Lack of ability for light to shine through. Veins of the woodgrain so squeezed together by the growth, inpenitrable. Dark, some comfort.

How could I possibly talk about density, it is both important and momentous in modern day life. Density refers not only to chemistry concepts, but those of meteorology and biology too. When speaking of tornados we typically talk of how two different densities of air come together to form a powerful phenomenon.
By Michael on 09.28.2011
Dense is something that is hard to get through, something that is heavy or excessively solid. Dense is what most people are about their feelings. Dense can be good or bad.

The dense air between us was made even heavier as the rain started falling down. As we stood there in the dark, with our bodies pressed together – we realized the inevitable , this wasn’t a love we could shy away from . It was meant to be. We kissed, passionately , like it was meant to be..

It was cake. Fruitcake. The kind my aunt made every year for Christmas and passed around on boxing day. Dark, filled with fruit and nuts. No icing. Just cake. Did anyone really eat it? Does anyone even like it? Hey, it makes a good door stopper.

everything is dense in the world. everything holds meaning. you can’t live your life with out realizing how much power and strength each thing you do or say had. every movement you make is dense; every thought you think.

Density is dense in itself.
The word accumulates in the internal memory of my brain.
Bringing density to life is bringing density to freedom,
Because when I write it’s not freedom I express,
it’s not words that I write,
it’s not a voice that I release,
it’s the density of my mind.
By Anthony URL on 09.28.2011
I find it difficult to understand that when insulting one’s intelligence the pejorative term “dense” is often used. This seems counter-intuitive, as a dense collection of neurons would increase one’s cognitive capacities to greater extents. Relatively speaking, of course.
