    ;) 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 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.

    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!

    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
