"What's the contour integral around Western Europe?
    Answer: Zero, because all the Poles are in Eastern Europe!
    Addendum: Actually, there ARE some Poles in Western Europe, but
              they are removable!"


Peler Lax
Poles aren't removable, but they integrate well if you give each of them two pies (if they want more pies, check if they don't wind you up).

Since we are operating at this level, each time I see the last post on the Brainteaser forum (coming up on its three month anniversary) I am reminded of the meme where the cute young woman calls her boyfriend at the office, asking him whether he would like to come home at lunch for a quickie. And he replies... "It's pronounced quiche!"

Today’s news: Italy has swapped sides and is now joining forces with Coronavirus. France has preemptively surrendered, just in case. Meanwhile Ireland and Switzerland have put their fingers in their ears and are going “Lalala...”

I'd love to see some hard data on recent relative sales trends for Corona beer. A priori, you could make pretty convincing argument for spurious effects in either direction.

There is a fifth dimension .. and it lives on our OT

www.youtube.com/watch?v=p5GP5uztjkE

It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination.
