As long as it is not "existed" a few bombs dropped on it would make it no longer exist.

Sounds suspiciously like something a City that doesn't exist would say.

Prove that who/what doesn't exist?

Pay me biatch.
 
2019-08-22 12:52:42 PM  
Does the city think?  If not, it fails "cogito, ergo sum" and therefore does not exist.

/Check please.

Denominations, how do they work?

What is the specific requirement?  Specifically, what do you have to prove?  I mean the exact wording?

The broader the language, the more difficult the proof becomes.

For instance, do unicorns exist?  If you say no, prove it.

Which is what Carmen Sandiego would want you to think.

I believe that in a court of law, the burden of proof is for the city to prove that it DOES exist, since it is much more difficult to prove a negative.  No million pounds (euros?) for you!

Because you don't notice the insect parts so much?

If I succeeded, how would I collect the million? You're not there, so who'd pay me?

Even if you prove it doesn't exist. Then the money doesn't exist.

"The city is supposedly a fiction created by a secret group known as THEM and is really a cover for a secret base run by the CIA, Mossad, or aliens."

Birds aren't real.

Neither is Bielefeld.
 
2019-08-22 01:57:36 PM  
Never heard of them

It's pretty obvious really.  The town that is currently calling itself  Bielefeldis not actually Bielefeld. It a doppelgänger

That should prove it. How do I collect?

I live in a town near Bielefeld, though I've never tried to go there. When I first moved here, they told me there's a joke that Bielefeld doesn't exist, and when I asked them to elaborate, they said,

It was also in a McDonald's campaign a few years ago, but I don't remember what it was exactly. I have met a few people who claim to be from there, and some are very bitter about their reputed non-existance.

I like the helpful map.

"Proving a negative" is impossible so they may as well up the prize to one gazillion. Unsurprisingly lots of creationists and other kooks used to offer similar prizes because there was no way to win but their idiot followers didn't know that.

What town?
 
2019-08-22 03:21:21 PM  
Never mind some German town, I still ain't made my mind up about Toledo.

I like the helpful map.

It's especially helpful because the aptly named author (Michael Moran) says:

in the north-east of the country

and under that map:

in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia - some 210 miles south-east of Berlin

Descartes walks into a bar, the bartender asks him if he wants a beer.
... Descartes says "I think not", and disappears in a puff of logic.

CSB time!

My great grandfather escaped Bielefeld so the the Kaiser couldn't send him off to war.  His brothers weren't so lucky, and his sister stayed behind and married a Jewish businessman.  About 20 years later my great grandmother smuggled their only son out of Germany, the parents stayed behind and didn't make it out alive.

The Voice of Doom: in the north-east of the country

and under that map:

...but - aren't both of those statements true ?It's not like Berlin is in the center of the country. In fact it wasn't until I looked at that map that I realise just how un-central it is.

Sorry, but you need to learn the difference between inverse and contrapostiive.
