This link right here that you’re no longer looking at links to a pretty cool essay.

Fry: And then the battle is not so bad?
Soldier: Oh, right. I forgot about the battle.

Well… I believe in them.  They’re good kids, and I think they really do want to learn.

Excellent timing; I was wondering what to take to read on holiday. Time to dust off my “Godel, Escher, Bach”, methinks.

See you(r avatars) in September. Keep well.

“Although this sentence begins with the word ‘because’, it is false.
-Douglas Hofstadter”

Sigh.  Is it normal to laugh out loud when reading that sentence?  Even if you’ve read it before, twice or more?

And glad to be of help.  When you get back, you should tell me about Escher’s writings; judging from his artwork I think I would like it.

I’m just glad I understood what we’re laughing about.

This one will never sell,
they’ll never understand,
I don’t even sing it well,
I try, but I just can’t.
But I sing it every night,
and I fight to keep it in,
‘Cause This One’s For You,
This One’s For You.

Well,

Godel was okay, as far as it went. Shame he didn’t complete it though.

Escher was a bit more difficult. I’d read chapter after chapter, then suddenly find myself back at the beginning.

Bach was impossible! I mean “C-C-C FDBAGA GFE”, did this guy never get beyond H in the alphabet?
