What do you find odd about a three eyed fishing walking down a Delhi street? I mean really, haven't you seen three eyed fish before? Do you need to stare at any old thing that looks the slightest bit different? You ought to be ashamed.

Tsk.

Oh, you probably meant the walking bit. I agree, unless the fish was looking for exercise, since most three eyed fish are wealthy and would tend to prefer taking a cab in order to avoid being stared at by people like you!!!

:P

Don't you have imagination or watch TV? Shame on you back. Anything is possible and enough TV can make you wonder...

Who says Tv robs people of their imagination?

Logically, anything is possible. It may just be extremely improbable, or it will take a very, very long time.

It's just higly improbable. At some point in time and space, assuming that time and space are infinite, someone will have to eat their entire body.

Space is finite and time is a man-made construct.

However, this could be flawed. So I'll present a much more solid impossibility.

It is impossible to write the normalized two-qubit state vector (1/Sqrt[2]){1,0,0,1} as the tensor product of two one-qubit state vectors.

An infinity of space and time does not allow for all logically possible events to occur, because the space of possible events has much larger dimension than four. This is with even a very modest definition of "event".

By embedding spacetime in event-space in some horrible, fractal way, one might perhaps be able to come arbitrarily close to any event, somewhere, sometime. But it is by no means necessary, and would seem highly unlikely, that the universe is in fact embedded in event space in this way.

If you want a near impossibilty, get toothpaste back in the squeezed tube. It's less possible than all the air molecules simultaneously moving out of your room long enough for you to suffocate.

It's more probable that they find more unpublished Douglas Adams material,

Getting all the toothpaste back in would be a bit tricky, but getting some back in is easy. If you squeeze the tube in the direction perpendicular to your previous squeeze, you make it more tubular, and less flat. This increases the tube's internal volume. If you do this while the tube mouth is in contact with some extruded toothpaste, the toothpaste will be sucked back into the tube. With practice, you can put back maybe an inch of toothpaste in this way. I use this trick whenever my daughter squeezes enough toothpaste for a mastodon onto her brush.

The technique could in principle be made more efficient, perhaps enough to get a whole tubeful back in, by arranging to 'unsqueeze' the tube into a more uniform tubular shape. You could do this by sticking things to the outside of the tube and pulling it into shape, or by sealing the body of the tube (but not its opening) into a vessel from which you pumped out the air.

Nuclear incidents are not a major factor in teratogeny.

Nothing has to be a major factor. Anything can set it off, and nuclear incidents with a couple other factors may make it possible to mutate.

Weren't three eyed fish from the Simpsons? Only I don't recall them walking. I guess this is proof that evolution really works.

ADoS never said the posts were anything, so claiming that they're not means nothing! Your post was spam!
