A woman I saw yesterday had styled her hair in a Klien bottle fashion. It came down into a single thick strand that swirled about her head and then became neatly incorporated into the rest of her hair.
I asked her about her hair and she said "It takes TIME to make all of my hair to touch all the rest of my hair."
I said "thank you for solving a cosmological question."

This may only solve problems of the shape of the universe on a locality basis but it does not require any addition of dimensions nor does it reduce dimensions down to only two.

The model of two layers of 3 dimensional space hovering adjacent to one another (Brane Theory) still remains viable.

More hairstyle research is needed.

What if the universe made my mind with the same stuff as the universe? It did.

Then my mind, like the universe, would become more and more fuzzy as more and more information is processed. It is.

Some day the visible universe will go dark as time space expansion predicts. It will.

The information of my mind will disappear in an organized concious fashion but technically still exist. It may will have been.

Although I am barely conscious now and have never been organized.

What if the "shape" of the Universe is a torus, Mobius strip, or Klein bottle? One part of it could transverse a multitude of "other" dimensions and yet we would only be on one side but existing on all sides.

There is a reason for this absurdity.
Realism is real and uncertainty is certainly uncertain

BWL
What Cosmmology teaches is that INFINITY does not and can not exist.
There are always limits. Such a limit is that there can only be one bit of information per Plank area (1x10 to the -31)

However an Einstien equation that describes a singularity ends with an infinity times an infinity...for infinity.

This we don't understand. It is absurd?

This absurdity is a property of BS.

George Gamow once described infinity as a hotel where there is always a room available. MOAB always has space for another post. Mom told me so, and who would know better than Mom?

I have a friend who was for many years a weredachshund. Every full moon he'd become long, hairy, and hungry. Fortunately, one time he devoured a piece of dog food that had for some reason been killed by a silver bullet (possibly a werecow) and that cured him. It also caused some comment from his plumber when he had the drains cleaned.

Side ways Smiley Face died on April 30,2019, surrounded by his loved ones.
The cause of death was over-use. Born on a computer bulletin board at Carnegie Mellon University, Mr.Face devoted his life to pointing out that the previous sentence was meant to be satire or funny. He also gained world wide recognition for his tireless efforts as a glib substitute for the words "I am amused." His other interests included frowning and winking. He is survived by his children, Sideways Surprised Face, sideways Glasses Face, sideways ABE lINCOLN fACE, sideways Santa Face, sideways Pope face, his beloved wife XOXO and his 271 imogee grandchildren. In lieu of flowers Mr. Face's family has requested people use actual words to express their feelings.

Hi. Mom!

I had to replace the belt on our clothes dryer today. In the process, I found $1.57 in coins and five guitar picks. Not bad, but it's far from the best haul I've ever had while working on a dryer. A previous owner of a dryer we bought second-hand had removed an access plate of some sort in the back of the drum and forgot to put it back on. So, the drum had a two-inch hole in it. When I opened that dryer up to replace the belt, I found more money than what we had paid for the thing. Not just change, but bills. Ones, fives, tens, and twenties. And socks. Lots of socks.

The last bit of poetry was from the young women of Ireland, complaining about the inability of the McBrides to, um, perform. They were actors, so to speak, but not very good ones and left the "audiences" clamoring. These "actors" always reached the climax of the play long before the audience could, and then would vacate the stage long before the denoument. Often they took with them not only the success of the play but whatever they could obtain from the pockets, purses, and wallets (not to mention the houses and businesses) of the audience.

Performance failures continue unto the present generation, which fails to generate.

O Captain! my Captain! our fearful trip is done,
The ship has weather’d every rack, the prize we sought is won,
The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting,
While follow eyes the steady keel, the vessel grim and daring;
          But O heart! heart! heart!
          O the bleeding drops of red,
             Where on the deck my Captain lies,
               Fallen cold and dead.
      

O Captain! my Captain! rise up and hear the bells;
Rise up- for you the flag is flung- for you the bugle trills,
For you bouquets and ribbon’d wreaths- for you the shores a-crowding,
For you they call, the swaying mass, their eager faces turning;
             Here Captain! dear father!
               This arm beneath your head!
                It is some dream that on the deck,
                   You’ve fallen cold and dead.

My Captain does not answer, his lips are pale and still,
My father does not feel my arm, he has no pulse nor will,
The ship is anchor’d safe and sound, its voyage closed and done,
From fearful trip the victor ship comes in with object won;
               Exult O shores, and ring O bells!
                But I with mournful tread,
                   Walk the deck my Captain lies,
                     Fallen cold and dead.

I Googled the The color...Lovecraft. It turns out that story is alleged to be the cause of modern clinical depression by Dr. Concrecia Goodlick (Schenectady Press 1931)

Pulling a thread got Rap thrown out of a strip bar once but pulling a thread like the color of space on Mudcat is practically malicious and psychologicly dangerous.

Oh what a sibling was our Amos!

By being a dangerous dick, a shamus,
Or wandering blameless, nameless, aimless
Amidst the towering Himalayas!
He is no scampering ignoramus
Trying to serve a writ of mandamus
As notorious, enormous fusses
Settles o'er this precocious chorus,
Wide as Texas, flat as Kansas.
Nay! For sooth our sibling, good old Amos,

H.P. McBride was the writer of bawdy Irish tales and was ahead of his time, basically achieving what Henry Miller did, only 2 centuries before Henry Miller. He was excommunicated by the Catholic Church, and then executed in Cork, Ireland in 1732, having been condemned for "obscene literature in violation of all the laws of God and man". His bodily remains as well as his writings were burnt to ashes and cast into the sea, but it is rumored that the McBride clan preserved some of his manuscripts in an underground vault somewhere on the island of Newfoundland. These, if found, would be virtually priceless, probably fetching at least in the region of 8 figures. Penthouse magazine made a determined effort to find the vault in the early 1970's, dispatching several expeditions which dug holes all over Newfoundland, but found nothing more than scattered bones, some Native burial sites, a whole lot of mud and rocks, and a carved ivory statue of a moose wearing a beanie cap (the classic type with the propellor on top).

It is, however, thought that some of McBride's more memorable pornographic passages were passed down in the oral traditions of the McBride clan, thus preserved for "pausteritty", as Shane would put it. If so, they have kept them secret right to the present day. Only an infiltration of the "Black Mess" (a secret pagan ceremony practiced by most McBrides on the New Moon) might finally succeed in revealing these notorious fragments of H.P.McBride's erotic literature to a wider audience.

Holy Flip, eh?!?

Go to a people drugstore. Or use a mortar and pestle.

No, Donuel, there are better and more subtle ways. It all depends upon the necessity of teaching a lesson or not. As for the use of firearms...there are such as the Welrod, but they ARE messy. Everyone knows the old "EA-3990 in the underwear" trick, but did you know that a person in a small room who is deeply asleep can be negated by a block of dry ice under their bed -- and the negation is attributed to hypercapnia (especially good with the obese)? There are others which are useful when you don't want to leave marks -- the NKVD were good these. When a lesson is needed you find a sacrificial lamb to use are the teacher, preferably one of the Upper Echelons of the opposition.

Of course, you never forget the "Moscow Rules":

Assume nothing.
Never go against your gut.
Everyone is potentially under opposition control.
Do not look back; you are never completely alone.
Go with the flow, blend in.
Vary your pattern and stay within your cover.
Lull them into a sense of complacency.
Do not harass the opposition.
Pick the time and place for action.
Keep your options open.

After special forces training following the Viet Nam war, our boy earned a nick name 'rapaire' for his expertise in eliminating the enemy with a single needle inserted beneath the hairline into the back of the brain through the narrow opening at the atlas bone. Once someone called him ice pick, just once.

As an international assasain he not only had a license to kill but he had the ultra exclusive license not to kill. He was a marksman, don't get me wrong but he used to say "Why use a sledge hammer to hit a fly".

One night in Odensk there was a rush so when the so when the plunger was pushed, mostly air filled a space between the occipital lobes. The counter intelligence agent softly said "wow" and saw the most intense green he had ever seen but stood there rock steady.
