iheartscotch: Pocket Ninja: Subby, do you accept that the universe is infinite? Because if you do, then you also accept that in an infinite universe, by its very definition, every possible event in infinity not only *can* happen, it *will* happen. It's already happened, in fact, and will continue to happen an infinite number of times. Not only did a million monkeys long ago type all of Shakespeare's accumulated works, but a thousand monkeys have done it, too. 782 monkeys. Two million and forty-eight. Three. Chocolate volcanoes? Please. There are chocolate volcanoes, there are raspberry volcanoes. There are even volcanoes that erupt other volcanoes, and who knows what thosevolcanoes erupt? Somewhere in the infinite universe, there is a tiny pea lying in the middle of a desert that tastes like steak but will kill you if you even look at it. There are alien creatures who eat themselves and give birth through their own defecation. There are fish who can't breathe water and die the moment they are born, and there are birds who are born in mid-air but who can't fly and so must mate before they hit the ground. There is a planet made entirely of hair, another made entirely of snails. There are rocks that sing and trees that grow antlers. They rattle in the wind, like a sack of bones. Every decision you've ever made has already been made, has been made every way it can be made, is being made right now, in fact. And out there, somewhere, there is a starship soaring through space. Its bald captain wears a goatee. Believe me, subby, you do not want to fark with him.

So, what you're saying is; there's an earth out there, somewhere, where I'm dating Miley Cyrus AND Emma Watson?

There's also a parallel world where you're the prison biatch of Jimmy Kimmel AND Christopher Lee.

viscountalpha: I just wish for a planet where there isn't any stupid people.

/no such worlds exists


I suspect that there are "billions upon billions" of planets with no stupid people.  I can name a few.  Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, etc.

We have evidence of stupid people on one planet, and one planet only.  And at this point, the risk of contamination outside this solar system would appear to be very remote.

tjsands1118: UberDave: You have fun on the "chocolate volcano planet"...I'll be on the planet with the beer volcano.

That's just stupid, who would want hot beer?


Who says volcanoes need to be hot?

Was all ready to get flustered about this, realized it was Pocket Ninja.

You are prolific, if anything.

The words "volcano" and "chocolate" are not in the article. Thank God!

Nice work, subby. You got me to clicky click.

Of course, this also means that there is another - equally as plausible - universe where you are dating Justin Bieber.....

By "dating," do you mean cutting him down and counting his rings? Because I'm okay with that.
