Darned lawyers, trying to keep those of us who don't already have lots of infinity from multiplying ours.

One infinity is more than enough for anyone.

I can't get a fix on which direction she's moving. It's different every time I look.

Edit: The first time I looked, she was moving clockwise. However, I was also listening to Debussy, so that may have had some effect if the whole Left/Right thing is actually valid.

There are different sizes of infinity, or rather different infinities. Although in reality there isn't much difference between having a dollar for every natural number and having a dollar for every real number...

I see it turning clockwise and no matter how much I concetrate or do I can-t change that.

If I had a dollar for every real number, and everyone else had dollars only for every natural number, then if someone bet his entire stack, everyone else could call; but I could raise.

You couldn't possibly lose. You'd have infinitely more chips than their infinite chips.

Is that before or after you are crushed by all that money?

Clockwise is all I can see and it is chopy, like I am seeing some of the frames in the animation. I am left eye dominate and use my left hand for things such as shooting. I write and throw with my right hand, and can use both for eating.
As an aside, I wonder how many people in the SW community actually even know with which hand they shoot based upon experience?...

I don't use guns small enough for one hand without the aid of a tripod.

The last time I went out shooting with my buds I tried shooting with my right hand for a bit and let us just say that I missed ever shot with my right hand. Back to my left hand and I could shoot about 7 out of 10.

I've done very little pistol shooting, and for most of that I pulled the trigger with my right hand, but held the weapon with both.

With a rifle or SMG, handedness in the actual shooting doesn't make so much difference, but the bolt, magazine release, and safety catch are generally set up for right-handed shooters, and it's quite weird to have to adapt to this if you try to switch hit. On the Browning M2 .50 calibre machine gun, and lighter guns of similar design, the trigger is actually a symmetrical push-plate that you typically press with both hands at once, but the bolt is again on the right hand side. It isn't easy to move that thing even with your dominant hand, so I imagine it would be a bit of pain for lefties.

On the 84mm Carl Gustav recoilless rifle the sights are on the left side, so you have to fire right handed. Handedness doesn't matter with a mortar. The Brown Bess musket has the cock on the right side, so firing left-handed is possible but awkward.
I think that's as far as my experience extends. But I haven't fired a shot in years now.

Sort of. I was in the Canadian Militia, which is pretty closely the Canadian version of the US National Guard, for several years. That was long enough ago that when I first joined there seemed to be a chance I might suddenly find myself facing Soviet armor in western Europe somewhere, but in fact I never came remotely near any form of combat, and in retrospect the chances that I ever would have were essentially nil.

The training was nevertheless very interesting, but it took a lot of time. Eventually I decided I needed to give it up if I was going to survive grad school, and it was like pulling up anchor in my life, to have that much more time for everything else. But part of me still misses it.
