> Topologically Connected Quantum-Relativistic Parallel Spacetimes... Made
> Watch in terror as Damian writes a Perl program to extract square
> roots using nothing but quantum mechanics, general relativity, and
> the very fabric of the space-time continuum.

> the diminishing returns of physical computation; Roman philosophy;
> when Super Science Adventures go wrong; the greatest Lego kit of all
> time; the secret identity of Sith; carbon logic vs silicon logic;
> the giants of 1930's physics; elementary spin-half quanta under
> relativistic motion; CAT scans; Will Smith; bongos; drunken bets
> involving penguins; algorithmic consistency; God's dice and the
> problem of free will; intrinsic self-inconsistency; the many worlds
> outside Copenhagen; and the inventor of stage diving.
> What happens when Dirac meets Deutsch meets Damian? Mere anarchy is
> loosed upon the world!
