Oh, so you want a paradox? Here's one:

More of a catch-22, or a single deterministic outcome no?

(Sorry, don't know how to point at it better than that.) Something I never would have seen if I didn't have Time.

Is there any evidence that the third dimension is larger than a plank length?


It could be a plank width, or perhaps a plank's length. But unless their made of Boson matter, it must be greater than a Planck length.

For some reason -- probably the misguided belief that if I discarded books I'd already read and re-read fifty or a hundred times, I'd make time to read new things -- I gave away my copy of Michael Herr's Dispatches years ago. But I just thought of this passage:

Like every American in Vietnam, [Day Tripper] had his obsession with Time. (No one ever talked about When-this-lousy-war-is-over. Only "How much time you got?") The degree of Day Tripper's obsession, compared with most of the others, could be seen in the calendar on his helmet. No metaphysician ever studied Time the way he did, its components and implications, its per-second per seconds, its shadings and movement. The Space-Time continuum, Time-as-Matter, Augustinian Time: all of that would have been a piece of cake to Day Tripper, whose brain cells were arranged like jewels in the finest chronometer.

I'm guessing the Greek for mother is something like "mammas" and not "mapas", so it'd be mome rather than mope, though you guys should have a group off four popes and momes and call them the Mamas and the Papas.

Nope the ladder is leaning against the 2nd from the left upright pole directly below where he is standing right now.

Note its rotated 90 degrees from how it was before so we can only see the side and not the rungs on the ladder.

Thank you for that. I'd often heard the last line: never known the source.

Has there been any speculation on the nature or function of the fifth "upright," that joins the second-to-left one at a steep angle? (May I be the first to refer to it as the Fifth Element?) Structural support/strut, guy rope...?

EDIT: Or ladder, yes.

Did you get this from the future?
I didn't even know we had a first poll!
Actually, I suppose that would be the Naming of the Knights...
But that's not of the upright, as that is the Eastern Unorthodox Timewaiters

Actually, as the left is the Timewaiters, and the right is the Initiates of Time, with the Eastern Unorthodox Timewaiters being slightly eastwards of the Timewaiters but still west of the Initiates of Time, so you speak of the second upper poll of the EUT?

I can't wait!

But wait for it.

This post is disjointed and not linear in construction.

And he's reticent to cross over to her, since apparently she pooped all over her side of the Planck.

Or, poop-deck?

Anyhow, I now see as through the eyes of Elijah. They're building a derrick for drilling for black gold. Texas tea. Oil that is.

Or it could also be where they plan on hanging the heritics.

Or something in between those two.

It just occurred to me that when one left the other for a while, it could have been to gather all the building materials and craft the poles on some sort of rudimentary lathe.

Only a mater of time before the city, or fire marshal shuts them down for their shenanigans on State Beach property anyhow.

At least 50% of commenters referencing the first post quoted above believe that the percentage of made-up figures is potentially much higher.

To set the record straight, I went through 529 frames (to date) and counted each frame where either Queball or Megan were doing actual work - not counting when they were standing, walking, squating, etc; but doing actual lifting, pushing, pulling, forming, etc.

The score:
Queball, 176 frames; 47% of the work
Megan, 197 frames, 53% of the work

I didn't break it down further but observed that Queball's work was greater in the early frames; Megan's work greater in the later frames.

Something's wrong, shut the light
Heavy thoughts tonight
And they aren't of snow white
Dreams of war
Dreams of lies
Dreams of dragons fire
And of things that will bite, yeah

Sleep with one eye open
Grippin' your pillow tight

Exit light
Enter night
Grain of sand

Exit light
Enter night
Take my hand
We're off to never never-land

Joules would be hard to work out sorry. One Joule is equal to one watt of power for one second. When time is like it is in this world how do you measure it?

Quite clearly the correct term is actually 'Moop', named from the Iberian heritage of the position.

Unfortunately, after much research and study, I have uncovered a terrible, hidden, mathematical code that reveals my deepest of fears.

I'd rather show you just one of the hundreds of slides I've put together for a lecture I'm holding on this topic sometime later this year at TED. But I think you'll find a glance is all that is needed to convince.

It's the only possible conclusion. I leave it to the rest of you to look into this grave matter on your own terms.
