Sounds like the earth-is-flat kinda thing to me.

So are black holes hexagonal then?

These guys don’t know what they are talking about. The universe is a loop.

Trillian> hm, I wonder what the edge of the universe is made up of…and what’s outside the universe?

DerKaiser> a red flag

DerKaiser> and if you go outside the universe, the cosmic linesman raises it,

DerKaiser> you’re whistled offside,

DerKaiser> and you have to go ALL THE WAY BACK to the center of the universe,

DerKaiser> which, as science has proven*

Trillian> hehe

DerKaiser> is earth

DerKaiser> * [denotes 15th century science]

Trillian> post that!

Trillian> XD

DerKaiser> ok.

This theory implies that we trust the French though…

They figured out radioactive decay, didn’t they? And the metric system. And a number of things that would take a long time to list.

They also figured out how to give up easily too.

Wow,but what if suns keep collapsing and the eventual strength of all of them is enough to rip the universe apart?

I guess the gods will have to get a new soccer ball, then.

Considering that they took it on the chin both in terms of population and land damage for four years during WWI (they STILL find spent WWI era artillery shells in the ground of northeastern France now and then) and lost millions of people during that, followed up by four and a half years of perpetual underground resistance after the conquest by the Nazis, which yielded valuable intelligence without which D-Day and the subsequent invasion would have gone much less smoothly…

And considering it took EIGHT YEARS of revolutionary civil war before they finally threw up their hand and pulled out of Algeria in '62…

And given how anal they are about fighting that losing battle of “preserving their language against foreign influence” (i.e. english tech words like e-mail)…

I’d say the French don’t give up very easily. In fact, they’re about as stubborn as us, if not more so.

Kaiser, he’ll be too stubborn to see your point. =P

Good lord. The French giving up is just a joke, probably coming from the Maginot Line. There’s no need to get all anal about it. I probably make the most French (and Canadian, and European, and Aussie Land, and Japanese, and so on and so forth) jokes at RPGC, yet I know they’re not based in reality. If you get all defensive at a joke that has no malicious intent, then I pity you. You really need to lighten up. <!-- Cheese eatin’ surrender monkeys! -->

Did I come off as defensive, 984?

Sorry.

[Damn text only medium. No vocal inflections. No implicit hint of winking and smirking running underneath my words… oh well.]

Shoulda put more Edgars and Celeses in there, I guess.

The universe is shaped like a footbal? How in the world did they come up with that?

So whats on the other side of the soccer ball? A soccer game? I think it’s at sporting goods store, but not any sporting goods store, the sporting goods store OF THE GODS!

They change the shape all the time. Last time it was an hourglass, next time it’ll probably be a kettle.

What you guys don’t know is the universe is Innocence-Shaped.

Oh, I guess that is round.
Damn
