hitchhiker's guide: doubt and uncertaint

(no subject)

You know, I could have been mysteriously knocked up during my final final exams by the math gods, and the resulting baby would be due any day. That's how long I've been poor and jobless.

The resulting kid would be scary. Imagine, if you will:

Mathkid: Mommy, what's for dinner?
Me: Null Set O's and Peanos!
Mathkid: Yummy!

Me: How old are you?
Mathkid: This many! *holds up appropriate number of fingers in base ten, and then rattles off their age in base 2 through base n, for n their age*

Me: Don't do that.
Mathkid: *does it*
Me: I told you not to do it.
Mathkid: But now it's a problem we can solve.

This is why I have no plans to reproduce.

There's a river flood warning for a part of the county I don't usually travel in.

The very end of it is the funniest part, though:

ALL PERSONS WITH INTERESTS ALONG THE RIVER SHOULD MONITOR THE LATEST FORECASTS... AND BE PREPARED TO TAKE NECESSARY PRECAUTIONS TO PROTECT LIFE AND PROPERTY. DO NOT DRIVE CARS THROUGH FLOODED AREAS. IF YOU SEE FLOOD WATERS... REMEMBER TO TURN AROUND AND DO NOT DROWN.

Remember to turn around and do not drown. Good advice, weather.com.
