No, matter and energy collapsed along with time and space. There is no need to calculate the trajectory of dust, because there is no dust nor trajectory.

Was referring to the link in this post: viewtopic.php?f=16&t=1695&hilit=zombie&start=1065#p55941
Big computer solves energy problems bit at least.


And Lethal was referencing Douglas Adams. Hooray for being slightly obtuse!

(it is okay, it took me ten minutes of active thinking to remember where it was from)


Thankfully it took me less time to make the reference. Still almost 5 minutes, though, to grab my book and find the part, and copy it.
And I was hoping it would actually prompt the entire conversation to take place, so I could mention the next huge computer that Deep Thought trivializes.

Deep Thought designs Earth. The conversation (between Deep Thought and it's creators) takes place a billion or so years before Earth. And before it even comes up with the answer to the Ultimate Question (the question to be figured by the greatest computer, Earth).

I like that story. I think my favourite bit is when Arthur meets the creature that he kills over and over again.

I liked how Douglas Adams completely forgot what he was going to write about in the epilogue of So Long And Thanks For All The Fish, and then finished the book abruptly after a brief apology.

That part is second in my mind to when he is so shocked by seeing his travel bag again he accidentally figures out how to fly.

Also, in Australia this week (to rerail the thread, sorry everyone) The Melbourne Film festival is sabotaged by Chinese hackers.

"Everyone's watching this - it's totally global."

I wonder if this is really the case. People of the non-Australian persuasion, have you heard of this incident before today? (i.e. the Melbourne film festival not the hacking)

Isn't that an earwig? I thought Melbourne was a type of really thin and crunchy toast.

No no your thinking of wafers.
Melbourne is actually a christian religious holiday.


Also... Eww, there's something that actually lives off ear wax?

Looks more like Ogopogo, which makes sense as Smiley is Canadian.
