Ahhhh! that first espresso of the day goes down so smooth, so quick.
Too fucking quick. I need another.
Just scoped this joke over at making light. I have a vague recollection of Godel from reading ‘Godel, Escher & Bach: the eternal golden braid‘ as a 14 year old (if you get into the copy over at scribd, why not buy it from your local amazon? Support your translocal wordsmiths!), and Chomsky is fairly well known to me. Heisenberg, i now realise after the coffee has had time to kick in, is Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle heisenberg… Stupid brain….
Mike Ford’s bar joke:
Werner Heisenberg, Kurt Gödel, and Noam Chomsky walk into a bar. Heisenberg says, “It’s very odd and improbable that we three are in this bar together. It suggests to me that we’re in a joke, but I can’t be certain.”Gödel says, “Well, if we were outside the joke we would know, but since we’re inside it, there’s no way we can make that determination.”
And Chomsky says, “Of course this is a joke, but you’re telling it wrong!”
More Espresso…. Must have…. More Espresso….
