Old Dog

New Trick

You're never too old to learn that you can't teach an old dog new tricks!

Of course, I could be wrong . . .

I was wrong once. Back in 1976, I thought I had made a mistake.

Boy, you can't get more wrong than that! But that was just the foolishness of youth. I, for instance, used to be conceited, but now, I'm perfect.

You are also unique!

Perfection is a mathematical construct that does not exist in the real world. There are, of course, pseudo-perfections (as in a "perfectly" pitched baseball game), wherein the "perfection" is defined in terms of a finite and a countable list of attributes.

Apparently, I do not exist in the real world. But is my nonexistence an imperfection? Hmm . . . we seem to be drawing close to the old ontological argument.

The "old ontological argument" is my personal definition of "mental masturbation". As a physicist, I much prefer the physical variety.

Shh . . . there're kids present. Use a euphemism, e.g., "Bat Masterson."

oops ... so sorry.

Actually, I felt embarrassed when I was a kid if I had to say the name "Bat Masterson," which I knew sounded like something unmentionable, though I didn't know what the unmentionable something was.
