Also No Trees to Fly Between

[3:29:46 PM] Jay Goodman Tamboli says: You want to hear something weird? There's a radio show we do at 8:30 PM DC time. The show is in Guam, where it's 10:30 in the morning, but it's tomorrow morning. If we did the show from here in Cairo, it would be 2:30 AM, the same day as it is in Guam.

[3:32:15 PM] Scott says: There's a Star Trek episode where they discuss a means of defeating the Borg. The idea is to implant them with this vision of a ridiculously advanced, curved shape, which was designed to overload their neural nets or something since it would take forever to fully understand its structure. What you just wrote probably would have done the trick just as easily.

[3:32:42 PM] Scott says: I'm going to have [to] draw some charts to figure this out.

[3:33:21 PM] Scott says: This is actually great, because Pyramids are one of the only things I can draw.

[3:40:36 PM] Scott says: ...I still don't understand the time zones. But the sunrise over Guam turned out really well in my diagram. Also, scale wise, you're about half the height of a pyramid.

[3:40:53 PM] Scott says: Point being, this is going to become my first cubicle decoration.

[3:41:36 PM] Scott says: Now whenever I get blue, I'll just turn to my right and be transported to the tropic skies of Guam.

[3:41:42 PM] Jay Goodman Tamboli says: Is your pyramid 3-D, or just a triangle?

[3:41:59 PM] Scott says: Oh, it's 3-D baby. It's like it's popping right out at me.

[3:42:42 PM] Jay Goodman Tamboli says: You're going to poke your eye out!

[3:43:02 PM] Scott says: You're right. I'm going to draw some corks on the tops of those things.

[3:44:15 PM] Scott says: Not bad! Considering cork is one of the hardest things to draw.

[3:44:26 PM] Scott says: However, for the second pyramid, I cheated a bit and used imitation cork.

[3:44:45 PM] Scott says: Also, now you're a Ninja.

[3:44:50 PM] Jay Goodman Tamboli says: Awesome.

[3:44:56 PM] Jay Goodman Tamboli says: Though the black will be hot in the desert.

[3:45:43 PM] Scott says: And thus the two men, without even intending it, finally solved the age old problem: "Why are there no Ninjas in the desert?"

Cubicle? Did you get a job?
