    Then consider it a conclusion from a premise voiced out loud because the conclusion is intriguing. But like most, I reject the premise, which answers al's query.

    Nobody wants a herd of cats.

    I have this image of a cat auctioneer...

    I wasn't aware that she bought her cats at auction.

    Not what I'm saying, actually. I was more paying attention to the flocking aspect

    Flocking in cats is incidental. They gravitate towards a primary source of comfort. They have no more herding instinct than planets do.

    I agree with Angus and therefore feel a bit dirty this morning

    If that was a message from the future, what might it mean?

    That you didn't pay enough attention in PChem class.

    What makes you think it has anything to do with me? And what's your criticism anyway? I bet something to do with valencies.

    What makes you think my "you" refers to you in particular? Guilty conscience?
    What's my criticism? There's not enough gadolinium in the matrix, obviously.

    Sorry, but that's whack.

    No need to apologize to _me_. Besides, shouldn't you be down at the local this evening?

    There is no _you_

    I'm wondering what kind of mathematics we'll have in, say, a thousand years.

    I don't know how GR could have been described without Riemann's stuff. It rescued Albert, and fortunately was already around, although still quite new. For the new stuff we'll discover, maybe having to do with dark energy, or whatever it turns out to be, chances are we'll need brand spanking new mathematics. That's the way it's worked so far, at least.

    Sounds like another round of "which came first - things or the mathematics that describes them" is about to begin. Get your popcorn and drinks now while the concession is open.
