In any case, I want to live in a world where a chicken can cross the road without anybody questioning its motives.
Knee-slapping humor to a topologist: Question: Why did the chicken cross the Möbius Strip? Answer: To get to the same side.
Damn. One mystery solved & another rears its head: Which came first, the chicken salad sandwich or the egg salad sandwich?

Always wondered how different The Wizard of Oz would have been had Dorothy gone left at the fork in the yellow brick road.
Happy 75th anniversary to The Wizard of Oz. Good to know (for future reference) that witches are water-soluble.
Happy 75th anniv. to The Wizard of Oz. Gotta love it even though Lions & Tigers & Bears hail from three different continents.

Genuine “Super”s in the Universe: Super Giant, Supernova, Super Collider, Super Volcano, Superman, Super Mario.
July’s full moon is to August's "Super Moon” what a 16.0 inch pizza is to a 16.1 inch pizza. I’m just saying.
Seems to me, as long as we don't program emotions into Robots, there's no reason to fear them taking over the world.
Snaring @billmaher at the after-party after his “Real Time” show on @HBO:
So much of life is wasted waiting in line: stores, traffic, security, etc. One hour per day sums to 5 yrs of your waking life
When other mammals get bored, I wonder if they use this free time to contemplate their place in the universe, as humans do.
Dracula & other undead people who sleep in coffins must have good abs. They always rise up flat-backed when the casket opens.
The @UPS tracking uses 17 digits & one letter. Enough for 2.6 quintillion packages. That's 370 million per person on Earth.
When a coincidence seems amazing, that's because the human mind isn’t wired to naturally comprehend probability & statistics.
