I take the TARDIS and replace it with the SCOTUS

There is now a glass chess board, with a single white stone on the c4/b3 corner and a single pawn (of undetermined color) on the g4 square and the chess board is completely covered with tribbles, a penny tray with at least two dozen tribbles on it, Norevan who is now asleep again and covered with tribbles, Dr. Norevan (who has the book of satanic rituals, a swizzle stick and 5603 MMO experience points), at least a three thousand more tribbles, a Sword of a Thousand truths and a partridge in an apple pie.

And way way off in the distance we have 3536 tribles and 1417 tribles in a fierce battle with 7220 tribbles, while the SCOTUS is parked by a now-gone xkcd follower who is listening to voices in his head, telling him that Cheez-Whiz and Cheerios make good food.

I remove the SCOTUS

North

There is no pile here.

To the south appears to be a large pile of tribbles.

And way way off in the distance three piles of tribbles have merged into one very large pile of tribbles, while a now-gone xkcd follower has been found in contempt for removing the SCOTUS and sent to Leavenworth.

There is now one penny in the pile.

To the south appears a large pile of tribbles.

Way way off in the distance three piles of tribbles have merged into one very large pile of tribbles, and the absence of a certain follower who has been sent to Leavenworth is apparent.

>go wormhole

There is 0 here. (Really, "here" should be null as well, but just bear with me here... er, I mean, fuck...)

To the 0 appears to be a penny, surrounded by tribbles.

You also see an xkcd, being followed around by an apparent absence of alliteration -- though, not of tribbles: on the contrary, it is quite full of them!

The weight of the pile collapsed the ground beneath it and the pile falls into an underground chamber.

The added mass of the heavy tome causes the pile to crash down through several more levels of cavern.

I wander by and take the 1,000,000,001 pennies. I leave a torch, and an idiom.

The pile is deep underground. It is dark here. The pile contains a heavy book, a flickering wooden torch, and the statement "You are likely to be eaten by a Grue."

John Galt is eaten by the Grue, which I then take for my own keeping. I toss a penny down the hole.

It is dark here. The pile contains a heavy book, with large chunks that appear to have been bitten out, and a flickering wooden torch. Still seemingly infinitely high above, there is a penny falling through the dark chasm.

From a safe distance, I throw a magical penny into the pile, that will automatically put itself back into the pile exactly 27 hours and 13 minutes after it was removed.

There is an annoying magical penny in the pile, and a Grue glaring at it.

From a safe distance, I throw in another magical penny. This cannot be taken out, if you try you will incur great bodily harm. Every time the other magical penny is taken out, this penny duplicates. :twisted:

I toss in the anti-magic penny. The anti-magic penny annihilates any magic penny in the pile and self destructs but returns any time a magic penny returns to the pile. This repeats the process of magic penny annihilation leaving only a fluctuation in zero point energy. I did not toss the anti-magic penny from a safe distance, so I'm eaten by a grue.

There is a fluctuation in zero point energy and a Grue in the pile.

I toss in the anti-anti-magic penny, which permanently reduces the anti-magic pennies power (thus making it unable to destroy any magic pennies), and brings back the magic pennies then self destructs, but comes back to destroy any new anti-magic pennies, but then vanishes before any anti-anti-anti-magic pennies come to destroy it (also, any attempt to destroy it will cause the entire pile to self destruct).
There is now an undetectable anti-anti-magic penny in the pile, two magic pennies, and a now full grue in the pile. :D

There are now a lot of cats floating around mewing and looking adorable in zero gravity.

There is a penny. It's not in a pile, because piles are on things, and the only things in this limbo are cats. Anyone with a cat knows you can't just put things on a cat.

I leave another whirlwind which combines with other two to form a soft cuddly tornado. The soft cuddly tornado carries the pile over the rainbow to soft cuddly Oz and then disappears.

Soft Cuddly Munchkin Land: Bright flowers and brightly painted houses surround a red and yellow spiral of shag carpeting. There is giggling from creatures that resemble Ewoks that peek out from the flowers and houses. In the distance is a soft cuddly pink bubble.

The pile now contains the amulet of Andor, the shredded remains of a grue, a mathematical impossibility, soft cuddly ruby red slippers and the soft cuddly shredded remains of the Wicked Witch of the East.
