10 thoughts on “and then my brain exploded, part 17”

  1. The exploding-brain warning is appreciated. I directed the item to Loki’s attention and moved on. I go into mind-lock at any mention of dark matter and of multiverse, except in a science fiction connection. It’s too bad – the deterioration of an otherwise competent cerebrum is sad to see.

  2. At first Nautilus3’s comments scared me off, but then I started to read it. However, will print to read to Jim as he will find it interesting.

  3. Multiverse, the final frontier!
    Actually it is probably just the next one we recognize.

  4. There is an even stranger theory in a later issue based on quantum mechanics, where the “constants” in the universe aren’t fixed until they are observed.

  5. A throwback to Heidigger’s cat? Wasn’t that the guy with the cat in the box?

  6. Ah yes, I knew it was some german…who is Heidigger, or did I just dream that up?

  7. Immanuel Kant was a real pissant
    who was very rarely stable.
    Heidegger, Heidegger was a boozy beggar
    who could think you under the table.
    David Hume could out consume
    Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel,
    And Wittgenstein was a beery swine
    who was just as sloshed as Schlegel.

    There’s nothing Nietzsche couldn’t teach ya
    ’bout the raisin’ of the wrist.
    Socrates himself was permanently pissed.

    John Stuart Mill, of his own free will,
    after half a pint of shandy was particularly ill.
    Plato, they say, could stick it away,
    ‘alf a crate of whiskey every day!
    Aristotle, Aristotle was a bugger for the bottle,
    and Hobbes was fond of his Dram.
    And Rene Descartes was a drunken fart:
    “I drink, therefore I am.”

    Yes, Socrates himself is particularly missed;
    A lovely little thinker, but a bugger when he’s pissed.

  8. Ah, that must be where I got confused. Monty Python has always been one of my best references for historic data…
