I don't get it.
Argument, the presentation of reasonable views, never makes headway against conviction, and conviction takes no part in argument because it knows.

Oldie but goody, way offensive and NSFW but classic for this time of year.

A man has 895 sheep. Realising that this is quite a lot of sheep for one farm, and Jess, his sheepdog, is getting a bit old, he decides that he'll probably need a new dog...no, a whole team of dogs, to round so many sheep up.

So the next day, the farmer goes to the pet store. He looks around at the various herding dogs- they seem very fit, but young and untrained. The shopkeeper asks the farmer if he wants any help.

"Why yes," says the farmer. I need a team of sheepdogs to help round up my flock. I have a rather large number of sheep, you see, and I don't think any of these young pups would be up to the task of rounding up so many."

The shopkeeper says, "I've got just the thing for you." and leads the farmer into a small back room, where a single sheepdog sits waiting.

"Are you sure?" asks the farmer, "I have very many sheep and I don't think one dog will be able to round all of them up.".

"I'm sure." says the shopkeeper, "This is a very intelligent dog. He's been well-trained for many jobs and has skills beyond any other dog I've ever seen."

"Yes," says the dog, "I know six languages, eight martial arts and I have a degree in engineering." The farmer, clearly very impressed by this dog- who wouldn't be impressed by that? - decides to take him home.

That afternoon, the farmer and the dog walk together up hill, and from the top they can see the entire flock covering the fields. "Well," says the farmer, "I'd like you to round up all of these sheep.".

"Okay." replies the dog, "You have nine hundred sheep."

I can't find anything which gives a simple explanation of Graham's Number :lol

Even on QI - Stephen said he doesn't even understand it either.

Summary last 2 mins.

Even this is a bit heavy but you get a sense on what it's about.
There were times when Rik and I were writing together when we almost died laughing. They were some of the most carefree stupid days I ever had, and I feel privileged to have shared them with him. And now he's died for real. Without me. Selfish bastard.

So - 3^^^^3 is like 13 trillion DIGITS Long but Grahams Number has 13 trillion ^ between the two 3's - and then you keep going until you have 64 layers of

   3(13 trillion ^)3
   - - - - - - - - - -
 13(13 trillion^)3

which is like bottom number to the power of top number.


All the way down for 64 layers.


I THINK that's what they're saying. :lol - Either way - some unfathomably gargantuan figure.

And THATS the figure for the number of DIMENSIONS a cube must have where all of it's vertices MUST be the same colour if you were to assign them one of two colours ?


:hat simple.

I love those!! And this...

Billy's Balloons

Also classic.

Almost everything I've seen from Hertzfeldt is brilliant.  Wisdom Teeth makes me laugh until it is physically painful to laugh.

Yep. I think the only party in the MP/DT situation that hasn't moved on is DTF.

It's funny because Ricky Gervais IS a massive prick :neverusethis:


- Also I keep saying it but Lulu is FAR from the worst thing ever. It's far from the worst Lou Reed album even. :biggrin:

Hmmm - would I rather listen to The View from Lulu or any song from One Direction or Justin Bieber ?

Something that's at least attempting to be art VS something that is thrown together in 5 minutes EXCLUSIVELY to create as much money as possible ?
