I wish rule 34 hadnt been evocted.

### Re: My number is bigger!

I just confirmed the 25% result experimentally, using brute-force in Flash. At least the axioms of mathematics stand to see another day.

### Re: stepping through paper

Lock me in a large box with a flashlight, water, scissors, and a few pieces of paper. Wait about a day. As long as you do not open the box, I both have and have not stepped through the paper.

### Re: Rickrolling incidents and YOU.

I was actually there for the Rickroll. I was at a friend's house overlooking Central Park West. About 20 minutes before the Rickroll, I saw him on the CN float outside the window. I didn't believe it until it was on NBC.

My old camp used to do this. We had about an hour to construct the contraption, and we were limited enormously to just a paper or plastic bag, a few pieces of tape, a few straws, a plastic cup, some string, and scissors.
