You can imagine infinities. You can even imagine heirarchies of infinities.
Great, if that's your thing.
But you should educate yourself enough to know it's an imaginary idea you're imagining.

Saw Monty Python in London last night. They played a short video of Prof Brian Cox deconstructing the inaccuracies of Eric Idle's "Universe Song", stood in a Cambridge University quadrangle. In the background, behind Brian, you see this object getting closer, and closer, and closer. It's Stephen Hawking, who runs Brian over "For Be-ing a Bit Pe-dan-tic". Very funny.

Brian was there in the audience, apparently.

That's not what infinite means.

Infinity does not exist in reality.

Deal, we will imagine our infinities, and you can go imagine god.
The only difference is we can take a bunch of fat max tapes and try to see if it's infinite.
But all you can do is sit there and imagine a god because there is nothing to measure.

I don't know if there's a god. But we know there are no infinities.

I'll investigate the unknown. You investigate known absurdities.

Well, it's my ole' buddy.

How 'bout that Supreme Court?

4 justices voted against religious freedom.

...exactly as I would have predicted.

If we could get one more liberal on board, we could have a party and make a bonfire of the Constitution, just dispense with the charade.

I have only robbed 2 banks, and I didn't go for the vault. Just the cash at the tellers' windows.

I robbed a Winn-Dixie in Columbus, Georgia and hit the safe. But it was open.

Good. That proves no Brians were hurt in the making of the video.

O Boy I gonna trust you YEAH! Feet back and spread um, put your hands behind your back and don't make any sudden moves. I'm now placing you under arrest.
You have the right to remain silent,
Anything you say will be used against you in a court of law.
You have the right to an attorney,(You can use Catcher)
You have the right to consult an attorney before speaking to the police and to have an attorney present during questioning now or in the future.
If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be appointed for you before any questioning, if you wish.
If you decide to answer any questions now, without an attorney present, you will still have the right to stop answering at any time until you talk to an attorney.
Knowing and understanding your rights as I have explained them to you, are you willing to answer my questions without an attorney present?

Did you facilitate the habitual use of topix?
Did you tell lies?

You are wrong. How do you know there are no infinities?
It is just something that man's mind cannot grasp.
The universe is proof of infinity. Does the universe, that is space, end somewhere or has boundaries?

Only atheists can vote against religious freedom, since they are against religion

Could you please make your responses longer and more inane?
I'm pulling 6 more months of home incarceration, and I have all this time on my hands.
I think if I could read a couple more of these gems you write, I would be driven to hack-sawing my ankle bracelet off - leg and all.
Who's paying for your house arrest? I've read that the monitoring fee can reach $600 per month plus. Now that I'm thinking about it, how in the hell do you generate any income? For someone whose hobby is perpetual incarceration, it appears you live fairly well. How do you pay your monthly expenses?
