So an ion walks into a bar, and says to the bartender: I think I left an electron here last night
The bartender responds: Are you positive?

Well I do !
I guess that means opinions are rather polarised on the matter.

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

That sounds both fun, strange, and complex, all at the same time. Unless, of course, it's imaginary...

This current thread has exceeded even my capacitance for puns. I think we should resist the urge to generate any more .

You can't stop it TFD - it's entropically driven. But cheer up: eventually it'll all just decay into heat. [Razz]

You mean they'll be phased out eventually?

And are we generating heat, or just hot-air?

It seems these elements show up periodically. Towards the end of such threads everyone but the dense posters have decayed.

So, what do you do when a chemist with a drinking problem is comming for dinner? Hydrogen (Hide-your gin).... It's better spoken, though not by much.

TFD: heat makes the air hot, so you be the judge. [Razz]

Unfortunately, threads are open systems. As long as we keep adding matter and energy, it'll just keep on going.

This is true, eventually it will have enough mass and collapse in on itself. I wonder if we can reach pun mass to the critical point of creating a black hole. What is the mass of a really bad pun and can we get a grant to research this? I think the best research would probably be done in the south of France myself.
