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.

arentol: Great post as usual PN.

That being said, what about those of us who do not accept the universe is infinite? Do you have anything for us?


Don't worry, one of your versions accepts it.

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

Your grasp of infinity. It is wrong. If you have an infinite number of black marbles, one of them must be white, by your "logic."


Your grasp of Pocket Ninja. It is wrong.

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


/no such worlds exists


Apparently after sending off all their stupid people to Earth, the remaining non-stupid people were wiped out by a virus spread by unhygienic public telephones.
