Thanks for clearing that up. I was wondering why my balls were clanging.

Just checking in. This is the worldline where Marilyn Manson is president and Trump was just crushed by two giant pistols, right?

Harlee: gaslight: Given how long gravitational waves are, I can't see how you'd notice. No need to secure the china cabinet, everyone.
Just checking. The longer the wavelength, the shorter the frequency, right?


Why are you asking him? He's not Kenneth.

doglover: Even scratching your balls creates gravitation waves. It's just harder to detect than blackholes.


Scratch lower.

Still, you might want to keep an eye on your Chesterfield sofa if you have one.

I thought you guys were underestimating the gravity of this, but upon inflection, I think you're overestimating it.

weird? now?  unpossible. I turned pro years ago.

Longer wavelength = lower frequency

Duh. Right. Thanks.

The graviton, if it exists, is supposed to be tiny, though, right?


Very tiny. You could literally fit over 100 of them in the palm of your hand.

I don't know about the gutter, but I think Farker's minds are stuck in a slotted wooden chair.

It's still Earth, but now we have five simultaneous days in our time pentagon.

You must have some very sensitive, low-mass balls.

When I called in sick on Friday, I said the extra gravitational waves were the reason. They told me to go ahead and not bother coming in the next day as well. What a bunch of swell guys.

Has anybody seen my cat?


Leonardo Dan Vinci June 11 1514. From Italy, but Pope Julius II was his benefactor, dying just before the fateful trip. Pope Pius X almost kiboshed the trip before being convinced by the Medici family it was better to be remembered as pro science... So Rome?
