- A: Christopher Stangland.
- A: It's pretty simple. Think of it as shuffling through decks of cards. There are three
decks (top, middle and bottom) and in each deck the cards (images) are sequentially
numbered (as of this writing there are twenty-three of them). The right side of each
image is linked to the next consecutive, the left side is linked to the one right before
it. So, if you are on image one and you click the right side of it you will move to
image two, if you click the left side you will move to image twenty-three. And so
on. If you keep clicking on one side or the other you will eventually end up where
- A: Because I don't know better.
- A: Very happily so.
- A: Hard to say. I imagine forever. It has been going since late 1998, and that is a long goddamn time.
- A: OK, its so simple. the first four digits are the year, the next two are the month and
the last two are the day. So the entry that i made on the twenty-fifth day of
february this year is called 19990225.htm. Now don't you
- A: You know, I have racked my brain and spent many sleepless nights on this one and i
still can't figure it out. If it was a spray or a dip there would be some sort of
dimple or drying mark on the bottom of each one. But there isn't. Every M&M is
perfectly smooth. And if you notice when you bite one in half there are actually two
coatings, the white candy shell and then a much thinner layer of coloring, so whatever it
is that they are doing, they are doing it twice. And think about how many M&Ms
they must be making, whatever it is that they are doing they are doing it on a really
really grand scale. I would say that they make them in outer space, because there is no
gravity, but the cost of M&Ms just doesn't reflect that sort of manufacturing process.
How DO they make M&Ms?
- A: Days, I am a web developer. Hire me?
- A: I refuse to anser that one. Get your mind out of the gutter.
- A: Yes. For instance Elvis Presley was famous (infamous?) at Memphis Mutual for writing
$1000 checks to strangers on whatever he had handy. Cocktail napkins, hotel
stationary, prescription diet pill receipts and the like. Those checks were always
honored. If it worked for the King it could work for you and me.
- A: Beats me. I guess that it is partly because I feel that the internet is the logical
and obvious next great step for homo-sapien-sapiens. It is the unavoidable
evolutionary child of our cultural obsessions with media (a mania that I reluctantly but
oh-so lovingly share), individuality and universality, made manifest through a mechanical,
semi-tangeable adaptation of some sort of Jungian common mind. If we (as a race) can
put this technology into the hands of everyone, and not have it be just another economic
hurdle seperating some "us" from some "them" I believe that we can
move on to the Next Step. I do not believe for a minute that this will be easy.
Actually, scratch all that. I just thought that it
might be neat.
- A: In a heartbeat. All you have to do is ask..
- A: No illegal ones. I do drink a good amount of coffee...
- A: I have no idea. If it doesn't clear up in the next few days go see a doctor.
- A: No, absolutely not. Putting aside the issue of curses in general, why would the Babe have anything against the Sox? Additionaly: this is the year. ADDITIONALLY additionally, in the order I would sign them: Nomar, Varitek, Pedro, Lowe.
- A: I donated it to charity.
- A: Size 13.
- A: Because of the wonderful things he does.
