No one has ever dug a hole in the ground.

@Pat I seem to miss the point with this one. How so 'no one has ever dug a hole the ground'? Is this some trick wording of the English language?

Technically speaking they have dug ditches not holes. For it to be a hole youd have to dig under then come back out ao there are two connected holes. At least formally speaking

@trinsec you see also we have to speak weird like this, since the word "through" is banned, because one awful blasphemer once dared to bring forth the difference between a hole that goes in and a hole that goes through...

@freemo @Pat

@namark @trinsec @freemo @Pat
What's this about ditches in holes within holes? Sounds like some Alice in Wonderland stuff...

@lucifargundam how dare you speak of fairy tales like an insolent child?! we are discussing important matters of objective reality, where, as we all know, everything is made out of shapeless massless kiddy clay!

@trinsec @freemo @Pat

@namark @trinsec @freemo @Pat
Kiddy clay? I believe the politically correct term is "Playdough"

@lucifargundam "plasticine" is the superior language, but that's only for the initiated

@namark @trinsec @freemo @Pat
FINE!!!

Wait until you see Namark completely loose his shit when he learns a hollow sphere has -1 holes :)

@namark @trinsec @Pat

father @freemo, you knowledge of the parker gospel is indisputable, I can only humbly follow the teachings

@lucifargundam @trinsec @Pat

@freemo So, if you dig a tunnel that goes in one side and out other side (be it 1cm or 100km long) you'd have dug a hole?

@Pat

@freemo @Pat

Well, then, then I've dug a hole in the ground. I'm sure as kid I've made some tunnels that my arm could fit through. At the beach, for example.

@trinsec @freemo

That's right! I didn't think about that. I was thinking a hole dug to China (from US).

So I guess, "A statement that is logically or literally true (or partly true)...", in this case is partially true, although I'm not sure how a "never" can be partially correct. Anyway, the series is just for fun in any case.

@Pat

> I'm not sure how a "never" can be partially correct.

Clearly you are not a physics major :)

"Energy can never be created or destroyed"... ::eyes the casmir effect suspiciously::

It doesn't go away- it just gets swept under the rug until it gets kicked up again.

@lucifargundam @freemo @trinsec

>It doesn't go away- it just gets swept under the rug until it gets kicked up again.

I don't understand. Is this a callback to an another thread?

@Pat @freemo @trinsec
He said matter cannot be created or destroyed.

My comparison is that matter doesn't go away (destroyed), it just gets swept under the rug(is hidden or moved) until it gets kicked up again (is brought back to immediate perspective after a reaction).

@freemo @trinsec

>"Clearly you are not a physics major"

I've *never* taken a physics class in my life.

>"> I'm not sure how a "never" can be partially correct."

In a simi-, sub-quantum, non-causal extent, I suppose it could be.

Story of my life... so relatable!

@trinsec

@freemo @trinsec

I think we lost real-life relatable with the original toot.
