Cubic Earth

Chat about anything your heart desires here, just be civil. Factual or scientific questions about philosophy go here (e.g. "When was Socrates born?"), and so most homework help questions belong here. Note, posts in the off-topic section will not increase new members post counts. This includes the introductions and feedback sections.

Yes! I've never actually got drunk in a shower. I wonder what it's like? Quite fun probably.


Another thought: Could the expression "mermaid pedicure" be introduced as a useful shorthand to denote any pointless or self-defeating exercise?

I already sway about a bit when I stand on one leg to wash each foot so it's a definite no for me.

we are jumping back and forth between reality and fantasy. Why go through this contortion of a cubic shaped planet? Lets just say 4 life forms meet that have never met before. Civilizations meet that have never met before.

That sounds like the feed line to a joke. "Four life forms walk into a pub..."

Should we understand the the plight of mythical creatures, Albert, rather than make fun of their ... different ablement? It's said that centaurs cannot masturbate. Should we laugh at that too? [weeping emoticon absent from the Smilies list].
