Re: balloons It is normal that when a balloon is blown up, its skin is taken far beyond the elastic limit of the material. Think of the size and shape of a balloon that was never blown up. When the balloon is deflated, the overstretched material relaxes partway, but it is still very thin and normal...

I was hoping for a magical answer. *sags Balloons thrive on human contact. They were created to bring youthful joy to people, usually in a celebratory context. When you play with a balloon too vigourously, it literally bursts with excitement, because it is so overjoyed at fulfilling its purpose. :!...

How about allotting one step per square in the sidewalk? Till finally you can handle no more and you hop onto one end of the square and stand there and cry until someone picks you up and puts you on the next tile.

All self-important pricks in general aside...

The poems are lovely, and I admire the idea of making one huge poetry thread as opposed to several itty bitty ones. I guess people are more willing to read shorter threads versus 30 pg ones etc.

=) My first was V for Vendetta, and Moore's writing is second to none, not even Gaiman. I'd highly recommend Watchmen by him and the two part Hush series because Batman can be a SERIOUS badass. First Sandman was alright, but I didn't get that into it. The nice things about a lot of greater writers i...

I always wondered about the first question, im sure someones come up with a complete answer on it. Its probably (i guess) something to do with the rate it defaltes causing it to contract differently, making it fragile. Partly similarly to ice freezing fast and slow.

Insane coincidence. I read this comic and had a faint recollection of the idea from a scfi story by Cory Doctorow and Charles Stross called Flowers from Alice. Whether the author really intended it to have anything to do with Alice and Bob is beyond me as the main character's name is Cyd. Maybe B=>C...
