Mathematical Hygiene

I've written before about mathematics and philosophy. Today I stumbled across an application I hadn't anticipated. The article's author sums up the life lesson to be learned:

I think there's a lesson here for anyone who stumbles across an undiscovered part of the universe and tries to claim it as his own. You can presume to hold on tight and never let it go, clenching up your retentive grip with constipated determination. But in the end, your "creation" will rightly return to nature's anarchy with a victorious plop, leaving you to wipe yourself clean of any residual pretensions.

If I had my way, I'd see more posts about Thom, and what he's thinking and doing in his life. Fewer posts, however, about links for what other people are thinking and doing.

Yep, if I had my way...

I am thinking about a cheeseburger. A very delicious cheeseburger. Okay, I'm lying. I'm thinking about sex.

As long as you're not thinking about sex with a cheeseburger...

If I was having sex with a cheeseburger then it would have been a sexy cheeseburger or, more likely, a slutty cheeseburger (a delicious cheeseburger would be the right choice for oral sex). Actually, I have a fantasy about having sex while eating a cheeseburger. Okay, that's not true either.

A search on google reveals the following random confession:

People Won't Stop Talking About Me Having Sex With A Cheeseburger And Yes, Despite Contrary Belief, I Did Have Sex With A Cheeseburger for 6 bucks. Interesting Story Actually. Maybe I'll Put The Story Up On This Site.

A brave confession perhaps, but not very funny. For funny try this page:

I hypothesize that should human kind be left unchecked, the epitome of our evolution will eventually come to sitting down and having sex with a cheeseburger whilst watching a million other people doing the same on a live via satellite cable connection.

I just spent about ten minutes pondering the logistics of sex with a cheeseburger. Not for myself, of course, what with lacking a penis and whatnot, but for you.

I would have concerns about hot, melted cheese possibly causing scald wounds. :(

Ten minutes, eh? One might wonder if you harbor fantasies about sex and cheeseburgers. As for the scalding problem, that is probably why cheeseburger love isn't so popular to have already had an HBO special about it. It also might be why ice cold coke goes well with ground beef delight. Not that I'd know, mind you. It's just, um, an inspired guess...

All of male-dom heaved a collective sigh of relief upon learning you lack non-female plumbing. I have also recieved several e-mails from members of said male-dom asking me to verify this. Just so we can be sure. You'll recieve a "Verified 100% female" paulthom t-shirt.
