The hypotenuse triangle comes in many flavors, some more salty than others.

nanc said...

alright!

Mr. Beamish the Instablepundit said...

I've got to do this random thread thing.

Hey Nanc, - what's up with LongRange? Comments on the thread you started ain't booting up.

The hypotenuse triangle. I need to get me one of those, beamish. Do they sell them at the Boardwalk Fries place?

The Merry Widow said...

Mr. Pres-Elect- yeah, I had that problem at AoW's also! Weird! Lots of weird stuff going on, I'm wondering about the server for my area, it's been funky lately, especially at certain times. Wonder if they need to expand? Oh crappe, that means more problems...
Life goes on.
Maranatha!

nanc said...

i couldn't get on either, beamish.

Warren said...

Cuz, TMW, it was probably some sort of server glich. Its ok now.

DM was having some problems about the same time.

These things happen no matter what.

I prefer omnitruncated polydodecahedrons.

;^)

I prefer waffle fries from Chick-fil-a! The 2 local ones are owned by Christians I know and they close on Sunday! But in deference to my diet I am "sacrificing" fried food!

Sorry Warren. Couldn't find those in Plato's "Timaeus" or my Archimedes Palimpsest... can you draw one for me?

Farmer John said...

You could kick-off beaks "Art Project" with a 3-D rendering of it... and then the duck could drag out all those Russian Constructivist's like Tatlin and start blabbin' away about the aesthetics of non-symmetry and dynamism before the CIA paid Rothko off to deconstruct them.

Farmer John said...

You can say that Rothko appeared right in the Nietzsche of time to save the world for degenerate art!

Mr. Beamish the Instablepundit said...

FJ,

I'm afraid I've never experienced the Boardwalk Fries place. But you can get a salty hypotenuse triangle just about anywhere.

And no, none of this makes any damned sense at all. If it did, it wouldn't be general. Or random. Or ubiquitously pecan covered.

Anonymous said...

Well beamish, you've flummoxed me. What are its' other nine uses? Holding flavors like salt & pecan was #1...

It sounds like it might form a useful part of warren's omnitruncated polydodecahedron, but I'll be damned if I can think of any more uses.

Warren said...

Bhwa hahahahahahahahaha.

You actually found a picture!

Think of it as a 3 dimesional representation of a four dimensionional object. Sort of a hypercube on acid.

It's the kind of thing that would have given Pythagoras nightmares.

The Merry Widow said...

Anonymouse- That was a very cool picture, even my 2 were impressed! Warren- That's some "fwench fwy"! It's just like the "fwench" too, all convoluted, full of air and signifying nothing! hehehehe!
Good morning, G*D bless and Maranatha!

Anonymous,

It's all nutty.

Sounds like tensor analysis. N-dimensional space, anyone? My brain hurts already.
