I don't think LH paid for it, SRS -- come to think of it, I don't think Rapaire paid for the privelege either. Hard to say who's doing what with which and to whom!!

See? Being seriously short of the least you would expect provides me with a new personal low. A goal to exceed, so to speak.

Very disappointing, all things considered -- seriously short of the least I would expect from you, Rapaire. How much is LH paying you for this perfidious misconduct?

I don't see why we can't have a mathematical system based on imaginary numbers, Bee-Dubya-Ell. And you wouldn't have to marry your ex-wife or grow your hair back, either.

Such a system, like a system based on infinity, would certainly touch all the bases.

Can we have a number system based on an imaginary number like the square root of -100? How long would it take to get to post #5000 in such a system? Or would we ever get there? Would we get to #5000 and #-5000 at the same time? Would my hair grow back? I wouldn't have to remarry my ex-wife would I?

My apologies. I misspoke.

Base 2 is the biunary numgbering system, having only two numbers, 0 and 1.

Base 3 would be the trinary system, which would have only 0, 1, and 2.

6 and 7 would be 110 and 111 respectively?

In binary, 6 = 110 and 7 = 111, yes.

There is no popular system called trinary but if there were, the decimal equivalents would be:

Dec Trinary
0 0
1 1
2 2
3 10
4 11
5 12
6 20
7 21

The Turnip
by the Grimm Bothers

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There were once two brothers who both served as soldiers, one of them was rich, and the other poor. Then the poor one, to escape from his poverty, doffed his soldier's coat, and turned farmer. He dug and hoed his bit of land, and sowed it with turnip-seed. The seed came up, and one turnip grew there which became large and strong, and visibly grew bigger and bigger, and seemed as if it would never stop growing, so that it might have been called the princess of turnips, for never was such an one seen before, and never will such an one be seen again.

At length it was so enormous that by itself it filled a whole cart, and two oxen were required to draw it, and the farmer had not the least idea what he was to do with the turnip, or whether it would be a fortune to him or a misfortune. At last he thought, "if you sell it, what will you get for it that is of any importance, and if you eat it yourself, why, the small turnips would do you just as much good. It would be better to take it to the king, and make him a present of it."

So he placed it on a cart, harnessed two oxen, took it to the palace, and presented it to the king.

"What strange thing is this," said the king. "Many wonderful things have come before my eyes, but never such a monster as this. From what seed can this have sprung, or are you a favorite of good fortune and have met with it by chance."

"Ah, no", said the farmer, "no favorite am I. I am a poor soldier, who because he could no longer support himself hung his soldier's coat on a nail and took to farming land. I have a brother who is rich and well known to you, lord king, but I, because I have nothing, am forgotten by everyone."

Then the king felt compassion for him, and said, "You shall be raised from your poverty, and shall have such gifts from me that you shall be equal to your rich brother."

Then he bestowed on him much gold, and lands, and meadows, and herds, and made him immensely rich, so that the wealth of the other brother could not be compared with his.

When the rich brother heard what the poor one had gained for himself with one single turnip, he envied him, and thought in every way how he also could come by a similar piece of luck. He set about it in a much more cunning way, however, and took gold and horses and carried them to the king, and made certain the king would give him a much larger present in return. If his brother had got so much for one turnip, what would he not carry away with him in return for such beautiful things as these.

The king accepted his present, and said he had nothing to give him in return that was more rare and excellent than the great turnip. So the rich man was obliged to put his brother's turnip in a cart and have it taken to his home. There, he did not know on whom to vent his rage and anger, until bad thoughts came to him, and he resolved to kill his brother.

He hired murderers, who were to lie in ambush, and then he went to his brother and said, "Dear brother, I know of a hidden treasure, we will dig it up together, and divide it between us."

The other agreed to this, and accompanied him without suspicion. While they were on their way the murderers fell on him, bound him, and would have hanged him to a tree.

But just as they were doing this, loud singing and the sound of a horse's feet were heard in the distance. On this their hearts were filled with terror, and they pushed their prisoner hastily into the sack, hung it on a branch, and took to flight. He, however, worked up there until he had made a hole in the sack through which he could put his head.

The man who was coming by was no other than a traveling student, a young fellow who rode on his way through the wood joyously singing his song. When he who was aloft saw that someone was passing below him, he cried, "Good day. You have come at a lucky moment."

The student looked round on every side, but did not know whence the voice came. At last he said, "Who calls me?"

Then an answer came from the top of the tree, "Raise your eyes, here I sit aloft in the sack of wisdom. In a short time have I learnt great things, compared with this all schools are a jest, in a very short time I shall have learnt everything, and shall descend wiser than all other men. I understand the stars, and the tracks of the winds, the sand of the sea, the healing of illness, and the virtues of all herbs, birds and stones. If you were once within it you would feel what noble things issue forth from the sack of knowledge."

The student, when he heard all this, was astonished, and said, "Blessed be the hour in which I have found you. May not I also enter the sack for a while."

He who was above replied as if unwillingly, "For a short time I will let you get into it, if you reward me and give me good words, but you must wait an hour longer, for one thing remains which I must learn before I do it."

When the student had waited a while he became impatient, and begged to be allowed to get in at once, his thirst for knowledge was so very great.

So he who was above pretended at last to yield, and said, "In order that I may come forth from the house of knowledge you must let it down by the rope, and then you shall enter it."

So the student let the sack down, untied it, and set him free, and then cried, now draw me up at once, and was about to get into the sack.

"Halt," said the other, "that won't do," and took him by the head and put him upside down into the sack, fastened it, and drew the disciple of wisdom up the tree by the rope. Then he swung him in the air and said, "How goes it with you, my dear fellow. Behold, already you feel wisdom coming, and you are gaining valuable experience. Keep perfectly quiet until you become wiser."

Thereupon he mounted the student's horse and rode away, but in an hour's time sent someone to let the student out again.

In what base? 2? 27? 10? 16? 8? 42? Pi? e? the natural logarithm of 3? This matters! You can't do such mathematics without defining your base!











(Actually, it doesn't really matter all that much since we've pretty much agreed to use base 10 for common transactions, but I ask so that Amos will continue to think I know math. Little does he know that I flunked Algebra twice, plane geometry once, got a "C" in analytic geo, a "B" in trig, and flunked college statistics. Little does anyone know that I can use a slide rule like a pro -- and little does anyone care in these days of calculators. "My name is Truthful James.")

I have thought about it long and hard, old friend, and I have made up my mind. I am leaving Orillia for good, moving to Los Angeles on a permanent basis, and getting an American passport. I am forced by Amos' insightful grandiloquence to the realization that I have NOT been good for you no matter how much you and I needed each other. Sure, we felt we were helping -- I brought some color to your drab life in the boonies, and you brought some desperately needed admiration to my collapsing esteem. But that's just another name for a codependent relation ship Little Hawk, and sooner or later it could only leads us both into deeper misery.

So, farewell. Tell Amos not to worry, I'll be fine, and I might even get down to San Diego to see him. Maybe he'll change his mind about me if he gets to talk to me in person, now that I have taken responsibility for this situation!

Thanks for everything, pal,

It's compulsive behaviour directed toward a meaningless end.

Perhaps so, although you are trivializing a very important essay which you failed to discern in its correct perspective because you deemed it a meaningless flight toward the 40000th post. Hidden by that trivial and illogical flight the actual contents of the essay may be the only rational statement made on this thread!

But your Shatner obsession is meaningless behaviour towards a compulsive end. Just as shallow and just as mad. So I don' see much merit in discussing it with you. Sure you can respond with enthusiastic rhetoric about how mad everyone else is, making it perfectly understandable that you should seek to resurrect the bloated memory of a weak-chinned ex-media figure. Make sperfect sense in the midst of the madhouse. But I will have nothging more to do with it (sorry -- "him") no matter how you justify it.

There's nothing unhealthy about my Shatner fantasies, Amos. But there is something unhealthy about someone posting 19 or so times in a row on one thread just so he can get the 4000th post! Think about it. It's compulsive behaviour directed toward a meaningless end. Meanwhile, el ted is posting to every 100th post he can find on any thread whatsoever. More compulsive behaviour! Then you have people consumed for months by the fanatical drive to make Millard Fillmore the most popular president on an insignificant website that manufactures little plastic toy president figures that talk and wave their hands around!

And you say I'm avoiding reality?????? Good God, man, this whole place is becoming a lunatic asylum. Focusing on Shatner is a return to basic family values and the other virtues that once made this a viable civilization.

Sit down with Herr Liebenscheiss, Amos, and have a good long heart to heart talk. Let it all out. Come clean. You'll be glad you did.

Ka-CHING!!! The 10,000th post, and I've got it.

That's right, baby! Numero 10,000. That's a "1" and four zeros.

Pay no attention to the numbers on your screen, because they don't mean squat. I have just taken the 10,000th post well in advance. I can do this any time I want to because I am a wealthy celebrity who can do anything he wants. In fact...it was easy. I got up this morning and said to myself, "I think it's time to take the 10,000th post on the Mother of all BS threads on that silly Mudcat Cafe Discussion Forum where they idolize me (which shows at least that they are not entirely stupid or without hope of redemption).

It's like renting out a particular motel room. If you want to do it 3 years in advance, no one is going to stop you, are they?

Well, I just took the 10,000th post and that's all that matters.

And there's nothing you can do about it. In particular, there's nothing Amos can do about it. (grin) Amos is one of those people who derives a sense of meaning from attacking public figures such as myself who have made their mark in the world (which he hasn't).

Tear your hair out, Amos. I've got this 10,000th post and there's nothing you can do about it whatsoever. In fact, compared to this post, anything you should decide to post between now and the rest of this thread will be really quite superfluous. This post has it all covered.

I may drop in occasionally to give you all a useful piece of advice or inspiration in between now and the 9,099th post. It depends on how much time I can spare from a full and busy schedule entertaining my adoring fans and writing bestsellers.

Did you read my last one? It's called "Get A Life". Available at all good bookstores and on Amazon.com, so do like it says and order one now.

It was 51 here last night, and it's not supposed to go over 82 today. Unlike Seattle, it's not raining.

Pocatello was noted in a recent book as having the third worst weather in the US. If that's true for a place with four wonderful seasons, the rest of the country must be paradise indeed. The high so far this summer has been in the very low 90s and while we're in a drought, there has been some rain and the wildfire danger has abated somewhat.

Last year at this time over 10,000 acres had burned. This year is less than 200, so far (and so good). This, BTW, is in a county that's bigger than the state of Connecticut (and LOTS bigger if you rolled it out flat).
