Talking about home improvements, I recently bought a Sierpinski carpet. Beautiful thing, but a bugger to clean.

I should have suspected something when, after I asked what size it was, the woman in the shop said "Its Hausdorff dimension is log 8/log 3 approx. 1.8928." But I was seduced by (a) the unique beauty of the carpet and (b) the willowy charms of the shop assistant.

I mean, the area of these carpets is supposed to be zero, for Heaven's sake. I thought "that'll take no cleaning at all", but then I read the back of the label and it said something about the Lebesgue measure, and the alarm bells started to peal.

And, to make matters worse, I learned that evening at the pub that Barlow and Bass have shown that a random walk on the Sierpinski carpet "diffuses at a slower rate than an unrestricted random walk in the plane".

Well! I said, "no wonder I was late getting out tonight", and they laughed.

You live and learn. I don't think I'll bother buying that Menger Sponge for the bathroom now.

Older & Wiser,
Pontefract(al)

Speaking of the Chinese, the old DeSotos were really well built and platinum seems to outsell gold in the commodities markets from time to time, especially during the monsoons.

To be, or, wait.....what was the question? Oh yeah.....either Glenda Jackson in "Women In Love" or Liv Ullmann in "The Passion of Anna." Or, what the hell, let's call it even and, as usual, go with Francoise Fabian in "My Night At Maud's."

j/p.




At one time we were all old enough to know, yet still young enough not to know any better. Thank God (or, whoever is screening his/her calls these days) some of us can somehow pretend that to be, more or less, still the case.

Quote: Lady Godiva

Actually I am being too flippant, I realize that, but one thing that I would like to speak to is school uniforms. I do believe they are a 'levelling ground'.

Too many poorer students are sticking out like sore thumbs in schools where they do not wear a uniform. Raggedy Anns Raggedy Andys hang their heads in shame whilst walking down the hallways passing all the fashion kings and queens who put more thought into their outfits than they do in their studies.

Uniforms should be manadatory. This is not really open to debate as far as I am concerned. It just should BE.

------------------------
I'm inclined to agree with you. Wearing ordinary clothes can sometimes reach the point of the theatre of the absurd. One of the largest high schools in Iowa just banned the wearing of white T-shirts because they can be interpreted as a statement of a symbol of white supremacy.

I kid you NOT.

Having the lot changed don't ask the cost - selling the lead won't pay for it unfortunately

Does anyone know about, or is able to research on our behalf, or is at all aware of the possible existence or a person or persons or people unknown (or known but just not to me) who might be able to assist, possibly?

What is it? Well. What it is, is. Yes, it is. It certainly is, we can establish with certainty.

What it is, then, is this. Yes, this it is. It is that. No, I said it is this, not that. But surely...

No. Let us take stock, for we stray from the safe bypaths of sane discourse, and career, as it were headlong, towards the thickets of ludicrous non-sequitur. And that, in the present context, would, as they might say in the Church of St George near Lalibela, Ethiopia, "simply not do".

So then, let us stand firm.

What is it is. No, I mean, what it is, is. Yes. What it is, is, this - is anyone aware of the urban legend concerning equestrian statues, specifically mounted statues?

I mean, the code wherein one raised hoof means the rider was wounded, two means he was killed in the battle, three means the horse is about to fall over, &c.

Well? Any ideas?

Here's three more ... now you can have a hockey game.


Quote: Charpa93

With the advent of Wikipedia, is it necessary for one to go to two or more sources for information when, in fact, all you really need to know is in one convenient spot, and, if you do take the time to research something for yourself by going to the (soon to become obsolete) local library, or even source sites on the internet, does this make you smarter or, in actuality, prove your stupidity for neglecting to choose a quicker, yet albeit, sometimes less verifiable source?

Alternatively, could I have broken up the above sentence with a few periods?

Of all the things one might want as a pet, a lampshade takes the biscuit. Yet, there are those who find a lampshade to be ideal company after a hard day at the office. Personally I reckon they must be completely bonkers when they could have a cornflakes packet or a piece of wallpaper or some bellybutton fluff. But there you, are there's no accounting for taste. I heard that Paris Hilton even has a pet yoghurt pot that she finds an ideal conversation partner during those long days doing community service.

Mr. Esq., I Presume

What say we let it be known that you and she, the dead woman in the park, you and her were old school chums, ok? From some eastern school. It doesn't matter which. And, let's just say she owed you some money from way back, or whatever. And....years ago she also made you take one of those personality tests, the kind that religious cults like to use, ok? So far, so good? Good. And then, along with some obscure, semi-well respected music producer, who's also now dead, she took you on some sort of highly questionable would-be faith-based retreat in, let's say northern New Hampshire, where they made you eat all the right kind of wrong foods, and then, forced you to join in on sign-alongs. And well, you've never been the same since. How's that?

"Well....."

And what happened then was....a little while after that, during an otherwise atypical spring break, she, the now dead woman in the park, she left you stranded at a.....a....motel, that's right, a motel in....Woonsocket, Rhode Island, and somehow she took all your money. Or, whatever your rightfully concerned parents could, at the time, afford to send you, so she could.... without your approval, or unsolicited permission, run back up to Boston to get......an abortion. Which, as it turned out, would have been your son, eventually. Providing, of course, you....and she, weren't so reckless. Mostly because of her. And who, the son that is, that never was, you would have named George, to honor an uncle, or the fill-in-the-blank inspirational teacher and/or member of the clergy of your choice, from your past, had you only had a choice, or the chance of a choice, in the first place that is, was, and now forever shall be, the only once upon a time past you've ever been allowed to really know, call your own, or unwillingly have chosen for you.

"Or the chance of a.....choice?"

Sure, why not? There's a first time for anything. And besides, who knows, this would have, could have been son of yours someday might have even grown up to be president of.....of AOL, the NRA, the NBA, or hell, even the MPAA, or say, if you aren't going to write any of this down then, what I mean is, I got this business associate of mine who lives in, well, almost Beverly Hills, and, as far as I know, he's always looking for a few good ideas. And, I'm no expert, that's for sure, but even I know pay-per-view material when I'm about to step in it. So, just keep talking and I'll take down what I can. So, where were we? You, the guy, a girl, the dead one, some cute kid named George, a couple of fancy cults to be named later. Where was it you all met, Lake Winnipesaukee??

"I guess, yeah.....right."

Great. Well, just keep going then, and don't worry, I'll let you know when it's time to stop.

-j/p (so to speak).
