Unknown to me, Ah Pek had actually done this meme (with the same 10 words) a few hours ago and tagged me. And here I am tagging him...
Sonia has already completed hers, one that would plant a very disturbing image in your mind.
Yee Hou has also done his.
I am getting tardy with this self propagating meme
A meme is a behavioural trait that propagates without the use of genes
However, I believe that if one is intent on building a mathematical model of the spread of a meme, it would still look very much like the model of a bacterial colony, with mutation rates, competition for resources (attention), propagation rates…
But memes would have high mutation rates compared to bacteria due to people executing the meme as they perceive it to be, not as the originator intends it to be.
I have no idea why I suddenly thought of creating a mathematical model of a meme.
I am actually contributing to the mutation rate by deviating slightly from the earlier method of explicitly starting every sentence with “I have come to realise that”.
Some of the preceding points do not actually go very well with the “I have come to realise that” bit because mentally, they were composed away from that phrase.
I can’t be bothered to undo the damage; let the mutation continue
I spent more time writing the introduction than actually doing the meme.
Meme reminds me of Mini Me, a very disturbing image.
Iron and ironing board
A crystal decanter of red wine and a pair of little crystal goblets that rang melodiously when pinged.
Cutlery and dishes enough for 8 people
Coffee plunger and corresponding grounds in the fridge
An outdoor spa with heated jacuzzi pool
A baby cot
Enough beds for 6 adults
An ancient standing piano that appears to work fine
For breakfast, we found in the fridge bacon, eggs, orange juice and milk. In the kitchen was a loaf of bread, a block of butter, 4 types of cereals in neat plastic containers, a nice wooden teabag box with more than 12 types of tea, not to mention the plunger coffee.
A rigid body’s length remains constant all the time. It cannot deform at all. Thus, when one pushes on one end of a rigid rod, the other end also moves at the same time. There is no delay between one end being pushed and the other end moving.
If we have a very long rod, and one end is pushed, at the same time, the other end will move. This process is instant.
However, a beam of light shined from the other end requires finite time to traverse the length of the rod. That being the case, it would seem that by pushing on long rods, information can be sent faster than the speed of light.
Of course, that is impossible. Thus, rigid bodies do not exist. Everything in this universe, from neutron stars to diamond gemstones, are not rigid; they are elastic. All of them.
Rigid bodies violate special relativity
Real materials as opposed to rigid bodies
I hope the contortion of my features passed for joy and happiness, cos (not so deep) inside all I could think of was, "Please, if there is a god, kill me. Kill me now."
Oh look, I didn't die.
