a tesseract and a portable hole for 500

Crash & burn! Crash & burn! I don't know if I can take much more excitement! And the fact that there's no windows in my new office makes it all feel like it's happening in a vacuum. Time warp.

Do time warps or vacuums amplify things? Or do they just suck your brains out and squish you into one dimension? I'm forgetting my physics.

    that is the first time i've seen or heard anyone use the word tesseract since i was in high school. even then, it was in a science fiction book that i read. it was about a house that was a tesseract. it would be pretty cool/confusing/frustrating to own a house like that though.

  2. Oh my gosh you MUST remember the name of that book for me. I need it. That's such a super concept.

    And happy month and one day after your birthday! Miss you!

    i was trying to remember yesterday, but to no avail. i'll do some research to see if i can find something that jogs the memory.

    thanks for the belated!
    ditto that.

    Maybe Robert Heinlen's, "and he built a crooked house"? And of course, "wrinkle in time" (one of my all time favorite books) by Madeline L'Engle featured a tesseract.

    But wait, what is all the excitement? New office?
