PENGUINS IMPLICATED IN GLOBAL WARMING
Murdo Station Daily, Antarctica

A team of hydro-geologists from the Netherlands published a short monograh this morning with their preliminary results of 5 years intensive study on penguins and their effects on the climate of Antarctica.

"There is no doubt" one scientist was quoted, "the presence of penguin breeding flocks raises the local temperatures significantly". The team has connected the presence of penguins with elevated local temperatures, increase in ice shelf calving; increased absorbtion of incoming solor radiation (due to staining of the ice with shed feathers and guano) as well as the body heat of brooding males.

I always thuoght that the concept of life outside of MOAB was nothing but a rumour designed by the cognescenti of the Dutch/Manatee Conspiracy to lull the masses while they flooded the entire world.

Rustic comes back just often enough to remind the rest of us that there is a life outside of MOAB.

So when in Intercourse does one and one make one?
(in/at/doing it/making it/getting it on/=1+1=1?)

Hello all!
Eiseley, you have Stilly slapping her forehead, more than likely mystified, as myself, how you have learned so fast the elegant structure of an Amos verse with attempt to get THE BIG NUMBER!
Makes me numb-er

Peace.

See? Zero and one -- numbers of the Living Dead. Which makes the entire binary system a zombie, a vampire -- and anything which uses the binary system is waiting, waiting for its chance to SPRING UPON YOUR IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT and suck out your living numbers!

I'm notifying the Idaho Legion about this.

(Zero)cannot be written as a product of two factors, neither of which is itself, ...
These are numbers such that, when multiplied by some nonzero number, the product is zero.

The above two statements contradict each other.

God bless the trim and freshly faced
Who blessed us with that cut and paste!
That captures, neatly, all in line
A moment of our MOAB time.

I pray some mad and burly logger'll
Come stop me from composing doggerel.
For if my prayer's not smiled upon
This bullshit might go on and on and on and on.

DR Math writes very wisely
To enlighten MOAB's Eiseley
On the numbers which are Prime
'THough the names of them don't rhyme.
Still the paradox of powers
Lingers through his lecture;s hours
One to zero? Naught to one?
Gee, but mathematic's fun.

This is what Dr. Math says:

One is neither a prime nor a composite number. A prime number is one
with exactly two positive divisors, itself and one. One has only one
positive divisor. It cannot be written as a product of two factors,
neither of which is itself, so one is also not composite. It falls
in a class of numbers called units. These are the numbers whose
reciprocals are also whole numbers.

Zero is not a prime or a composite number either. Zero has an infinite number of divisors (any nonzero whole number divides zero). It cannot be written as a product of two factors, neither of which is itself, so zero is also not composite. It falls in a class of numbers called zero-divisors. These are numbers such that, when multiplied by some nonzero number, the product is zero.

The most important fact of multiplication of integers is called the
Fundamental Theorem of Arithmetic. It says that every whole number
greater than one can be written *uniquely* (except for their order) as
the product of prime numbers. This is so important that we tailor our
idea of what a prime number is to make it true. If 1 were a prime
number, this would be false, since, for example,

   7 = 1*7 = 1*1*7 = 1*1*1*7 = ...,

and the uniqueness would fail.

A number to the Zeroeth is just one,
ANd to the first, only itself.
To Zero then, the two powers are but one,
And one, the opposite of zero's very self.
Zero to the Oneth, or to the zero-eth
Alike contrive to show the Zeroness
Behind all frames and powers among forms
Whence cometh one, and all it does abet,
And the end of lies, when liars do confess.

Is zero prime or not?

A prime is defined as a number only evenly divisible by itself and one, but you can't divide ANYTHING into zero (e.g., 0/1) or anything BY zero (e.g., 0/0).

Or does this make it the Schoedinger's cat of numbers, both prime and not-prime. And if this is the case, can it be warded off by garlic?

There nothing that represents the MOAB magic mystique
Like double-contrarian double-negation speak
Plucking the parallel streams of time
And citing an even number as Prime
Or not the Prime (from one before)--
Like opening two sides of the same door
And oscillating through the powers of N
Until they go around some distant bend
And reappear in present time
Leaving us all fired up and Primed.

Well, you would probably want to support any program that enlightened teenagers who thought "Amish" was the name of a rock band, no?

They ARE good people but a bit unusual and teaching the young to view them with equanimity is an important part of their education, even if it drives them to Intercourse.

Okay, okay.
Here's to Then and Now:

"The cold Duke was afraid of Now, for Now has warmth and urgency, and Then is dead and buried. Now might bring a certain knight of gay and shining courage?"but no!" the cold Duke muttered. "The Prince will break himself against a new and awful labor: a place too high to reach, a thing too far to find, a burden too heavy to lift." The Duke was afraid of Now, but he tampered with the clocks to see if they would go, out of a strange perversity, praying that they wouldn't. Tinkers and tinkerers and a few wizards who happened by tried to start the clocks with tools or magic words, or by shaking them and cursing, but nothing whirred or ticked. The clocks were dead, and in the end, brooding on it, the Duke decided he had murdered time, slain it with his sword, and wiped his bloody blade upon its beard and left it lying there, bleeding hours and minutes, its springs uncoiled and sprawling, its pendulum disintegrating."

Rapaire has kindly informed us that he was not born. That would include being untimely ripped from someone's WOmb with a Vous. One has to ask, then, how his kindly benevolent Executive Directorship manages to materialize his allegedly corporate hologram into the Pocatello library once a month. P'raps he will be so good as to elucidate.

Now, as we wander on our way
We pleasure take in posts a-plenty;
To reach the 75 of Kay
Requires only one and twenty!
And BS bright and of good worth
From worry now has freed us
Discussing Booke Man's lack of birth
From care has surely freed us.
Type on, type on, you MOABs bold,
And spare no elocution
To reach that number, bright and gold,
Requires diligence on all our parts.

4. I never attended any school here, but I did give some classes.

It was actually a southern cross--followed by a northern uppercut--that laid Rapaire low by KO in his last season as varsity boxing contender back at Pocatello State. His father managed to have all the news stories suppressed and the negatives burned. After all, that's what fathers are for. But the shiner was world class.
