Re: 1318: "Actually"

Actually, there's a homeomorphism between all of them, so they're the same, really! (Okay, so I'm just learning topology now, so sue me....) Um, actually, I can't think of any homeomorphism between a plane and a sphere. If the sphere was filled in, then they could both contract to a point, but that...

Re: "Circuit Diagram" Discussion

The answer is that the circuit bursts into flames because there's a 50V source with both sides connected to ground. EDIT: And some AC sources with the ends hooked together. Anyone who gets the arena joke is definitely a nerd. My friend says "false there is a wire going to the sun, its not a cl...

Re: "Gravity Wells" Discussion

Very interesting, but not very funny, and it was the just the idea of the drawing that was interesting, even though a lot more interesting ideas could have been put in.

Re: "Christmas Plans" Discussion

Heh. I didn't notice the hidden joke in "I just don't know when Christmas is." until I saw the comments. I love the Jewish calender shifting dates. It makes for such a nice surprise and variety. Some years, all the holidays are during the weekdays, giving us JUST enough time to prepare all...
