Kittys
My cats just did something really funny! They were up on the bar (where their water is), and they were playing some kind of thumb-war with the water dish! The object was to splash the water with a paw before the other one could slap you! Wait, that's not thumb wars. That's somethin else. I forgot what game that is. It was still a funny game for cats to play with the water dish!
When one of 'em finally splashed, they ran off, then they came back and had a time-out to drink the water.

Oh crap, I just thought of something. What if space-time *isn't* in continuum form?

In other news, Richard Horvitz was in last week's episode of Dave the Barbarian. Might be a recurring character. Not as cool as Dag or Zim, but still, cool to hear him again.

I'm all : amused amused

I can't remember the name of that game either, but it sounds vaguely like Steal The Bacon.

We definitely seem to perceive it that way, and so far it's given us pretty good results. There's mutterings of actual granularity, but i find them distasteful (look up stuff on the Planck length if you're really, really, seriously, going-to-devote-hours interested). Smoothness feels Right, but, yah, we probably live in a very finely granular Universe. Which is ok enough, i suppose.

But that's not the kind of non-continuum you were talking about, i suspect.

I can't think of any good way to test the theory of universal discontinuity while one is part of the system, since things would be constantly leaping around,but only to internally-consistent points. Living in a system that randomly jumped to inconsistent points would be very nice: it'd give me something to blame my piss-poor short-term memory on! =)
