[OT] Completely off-topic but couldn't resist



#2

Hi, all:

Completely, utterly off-topic but just couldn't resist. This is a joke, right ?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toilet_paper_orientation

Notice in particular the equations under "Similar controversies", as well as the preposterous article's length, the 129 Notes, and the equally disproportionate number of References.

I wonder who the authors of this funny mischief are ... XD

Regards from V.

And that's not all, Luiz, just google for

    toilet paper orientation

and there you are, Google returns about 755,000 references, including Wikipedia, CNET, Science and Technology ones, etc, etc.

8-O ...

... must be some global conspiracy or something ... XD

Have a nice weekend and best regards.

Hi, Valentim.

Could not say any better.

BTW, let me see if I am reasoning correctly - as if it is possible to reason correctly about this... So much attention to toilet paper around the globe might actually mean there is much sh... Oops! I guess my reasoning is contaminated so far...

Thanks for sharing, Valentim. It may be an off topic subject, but I am 100% sure any and each one of us here (and elsewhere) knows exactly what is this about. And there's more now to laugh about in this weekend.

That's right it is really not Off-Topic.

This story reminds me the one of peoples considering that pressing the ENTER^ key pushes the value up or down into the calculator stack!

but Over the Top as well.

The subject is very much on topic if you consider that according with this headline of a few days ago: "H-P stock hits 9-year low, down 11%" HP stock in the toilet.

Modern life is complicated. We didn't have to agonize over options like that when all we had was the Sears catalog.

Thanks for that Valentin - hilarious. Especially the Knuth reference.

Of course, "I am highly knowledgeable about this topic (optional)" and have rated this article highly. ;-)

Over or Under isn't the biggest dilemma; the real decision is wad or fold!
