JimmyBlonde, it's interesting that your postulation assumes the balloon is a balloon at all, in much the same way that Schrodinger assumed the cat. Until the balloon is observed by all concerned to be, in fact, a balloon it might just as well be a waffle iron. This of course does not disprove the remainder of your cited conundrum, with which I happen to agree. As to your Length of 0 String law, you have overlooked the rather glaring observation that when dividing said piece of string in half, you can then divide that half in half, and then that half in half again, and so on into perpetude, thus proving that every piece of string contains an infinite number of halfway points and therefore must be infinitely long as no finite length of anything can contain an infinite number of points, halfway or otherwise.

Now if you'll excuse me I must locate in which alternate universe I have left my infinite number of monkeys with their respective typewriters as I have 0 waffle irons for which claims need to be written.

I suppose I could use a multi dimensional waffle iron to fold the string in half but irrational waffle irons of indefinite potential dimensions are difficult to come by. The staff at Kmart get angry and confused when I ask for things like that.

Bob Newhart:
An infinite number of monkeys sat in front of an infinite numbers of typewriters in an experiment to prove that given time, one of the monkeys would type a masterpiece. One day an observer spotted one monkey typing and excited, called his colleague over to see, and read out aloud what the monkey had typed - "To be or not to be, that is the gazornanplat".

Jimmy, go to the K-Mart on Heisenberg Avenue and ask for Werner, he can help you out. In fact, there was a sale on IWIOIPDs just last week, they were half off.

If that is a motion, Lou, then I second it. If this isn't the greatest bunch of loonies on the internet, I'll eat my hat. The small one, not the big one.

Proof:

if "0 balloon claimed" is confirmed, 0 balloon is credited.
also if "0 balloon claimed" is denied, 0 balloon is credited.


What you have here is your classic Schrodingers Boolean Quantum Zero Balloon Conundrum, it's quite well known in the more obscure fields of hypothetical drunken mathematics. Easily solved by applying the "Length of 0 String" law whereby any piece of string can be said to have a length that is equal to twice of half its' total length such that, in abstractia, every piece of string of indeterminate length has the same length until measured by more rational examination.

Yep, but if a balloon is cut by Occam's Razor in the woods, will time fold back upon itself?

That's the stuff that really matters.

Look, we have proof enough that JimmyBlonde is a cylinder shy of a rotary. I say get the cricket bat and stock the bar! I second Robert Wiggins' motion and RAF_Louvert's agreement to it (after all, Lou is the President). Seldom have I seen such exquisite barminess the first time a man shows up. And, like Sandbagger, I both got it and enjoyed the heck out of it. Bully, man! Bully!

JimmyBlonde, if you think you have what it takes to be one of the daft, the touched, the Barmy, perhaps you should follow the link, review the qualifications, and submit a formal application to the BOC.

As an aside to Sandbagger, I have quoted Newharts' phrase more than once - when I was a kid we had "The Button-Down Mind Strikes Back" om a vinyl 33-1/3 rpm LP. Do you remember "The Grace L. Ferguson Airline and Storm Door Company?" Dem wuz da days! How about about the cop trying to talk down the jumper? "Now where the h*** did he go?"

And before I forget, welcome, JimmyBlonde, don't recall seeing you around before.

He's in!!! Second it, third it, fourth it. Good stuff. Hey Lou, do you have any of the BWOC BWOC BWOC pins left? This oxymoron (moron?) of dividing by zero really has me confussed!!! Dammit. This sim is hard enough without this kind of lightheadedness going around. Oh well, it's always something. SW

Flying in Jasta 5 to escort two Rumplers the formation was attacked en route by SE5as then after dispatching one head-on using ~100 rounds flew to aid Rumplers as the other members of the flight were busy with the other two SEs. A group of striped nose Camels (RNAS-11-D) were attacking the Rumplers and I was able to lure two away. They gave chase. One turned away slowing down. I rolled to split ess and reverse direction praying the wings don't fold, caught the slowing Camel and let him have it. The pilot jumped out! His name was found to be 'Punk' something or other. I engaged the remaining one and managed to get him hedge hopping just behind our lines. He was David Vincent Hall. I have never seen a pilot 'jump' before!!!
