Time dialation

Post by Cinni »

This is the part where I fall over laughing.

On the one hand, a very true observation os the nature of the perception of time.

On the other hand, a sudden mental image of things naughty indeed.

But probably not accurate. I picture Pierce on top, so to speak. :twisted:

Well yeah! I thought it was obvious that the big guy wouldn't want to crush the little guy. Same applies for when you substitute the word "gal" for either occurence of the word "guy." Or both.

Of course, given the probable musculature and stability of large athletic persons, I'm probably exaggerating the Towers of Hanoi assumption.

On the other hand, are all those implants for agility alone? Some of Pierce's gymnastic gyrations would nessecitate some leg strength...

I'm wondering if Alfy is misreading, either intentionally or unintentionally, or if the special meaning of the word "Top" isn't known to him.

Of course, I could be misreading Cinni.

If I say much more, though, we might need a NSFW flag on this one. XD

That ship may not have sailed per se but it sure as hell is pulling up the anchor and getting all the masts lined up.

You have no idea how many times I've said that. :roll:

As for positions, I can totally see Alex as a big-ol-bossy-butch-bottom-boi. :evil:

Thank you. I was quite proud of it when I wrote it. And on my lunch, too.

There is a joke among the softball teams up here that they have problems winning because they're all 'catchers'.

Took me a bit there, but I suspect that Detailbear was agreeing with me.

That said, there's something to be said for switching. :)


And a full round of applause to Alan, for pointing out osmething people seem to forget occasionally, to DetailBear, for a beautifully convolouted turn of phrase, and to me, because danm, I'm cool.

Alfy, there are only two of them. That's not exactly a Towers of Hanoi situation.

Alright, I think I need a PM to explain Towers of Hanoi to me. My attempts at google fu only picked up baby toys. =^^;=

I don't see any reason not to explain it here.

According to the story, at Hanoi, there were some rods sticking out of the ground, with 64 discs of steadily increasing diameter threaded onto them. The idea was to move the entire stack from the rod on the left to the rod on the right, moving only one disc at a time and never putting a disc on top of a smaller one. Apparently, the story was that the world would end after this was accomplished.

I don't know if the towers actually exist, but the problem is used (usually with smaller discs) in computer science classrooms to help demonstrate the utility of recursive algorithms, since moving 64 discs can be simulated by moving 63 discs, then moving one, then moving 63 discs again, and moving 63 discs can be simulated by moving 62 discs, then one, then moving 62 discs again, and so on until your base goal is moving only one disc-- a trivial proposition.

That explains a lot, on the second read through. I have a dirty mind, and somehow mistook that for a sexual position. =^^;=

- Jarylan, at least that explains the images Google kept showing me...

okay you guys have me all confused and there is a yaoi fest going on in my head with around 12 different positions in play so i'm taking a little break from thinking soon.
the darkness is ever present even in the light.

the perversion doesn't stop just because the sun comes up

if i can make people think and consider their lives even for a moment each day then my life has just that much more meaning

one of the hardest skills i seek to master is the skill of knowing when to shut up

Honestly!

I mean, in this context, evoking the Towers of Hanoi, a game where you slide rings over three different pegs in one combination after another, over and over again just ~screams~ all-man threesome.

Oh wait I typed that out loud.

Wait, the Towers of Hanoi would be obviously impossible without at least three--
