    Be careful, once someone researches where The Dan's name originated, all discussions and photos related may be off limits.......

    ;) I'll help move that along then.

    Google "William S. Burroughs N@ked Lunch" :)

    Interestingly, William S. Burroughs (a truly unique character) was heir to the Burroughs office machine company's family fortune.

    (for anyone who remembers "office machines" or "business machines" as another company with a TLA name called 'em)

    I would post a link to "Highway to Hell" or "Lick it Up" but it might be deemed offensive. Perhaps "Dude looks like a Lady" would be ok?

    I have an uncle that worked for Burroughs for 30 some odd years. He was claimed to be the #2 cobol programmer in the world and claimed that if only he could have been credited for all the thousands of hours in training & schooling he could have had 3 doctorate degrees but all he truly ended up with was useless antique thoughts.

    This will clarify things, but has to be viewed in its entirely...

    Clearly this post was made without true *GOOD* karma in mind and therefor is not really karma.

    Well put.
    I think I'll appropriate that as my epitaph!

    Heh -- you're on to me.
    I was gonna post the link to another thread at CP today -- but I thought better of it.

    It is a fine song, though. A fine, fine song -- besides being apropos I think, of the state of things these days.
    As the liner notes observe, it has a terrific gee-tar solo by the Skunk.

    I think I mentioned this Someplace Else -- but The Skunk (Jeff Baxter) earns his keep a slightly different way nowadays.

    Couldn't have put it better myself.

    Actually, one of my mottoes (you know a couple of them already) is:
    Four-thirds of Americans have difficulty with fractions

    Count me in!

    Too imaginary for this karma. Not exactly irrational either. Love the effort though. :)

    I feel, somehow, strangely obligated at this point to mention that the three-dimensional (or is that four-dimensional?) analogue of a Möbius Strip is a Klein Bottle.

    klein-bottle.jpg

    In the 1960s, British mathematicians Lennon and McCarntey provided, I think, a succinct explanation, followed by an elegant proof, of the characteristics of the Klein Bottle:
    Your inside is out when your outside is in
    Your outside is in when your inside is out

    So come on come on
    Come on its such a joy
    Come on its such a joy
    Come on let's make it easy
    Come on let's make it easy
    Make it easy, make it easy
    Everybody's got something to hide except for me and my monkey
