Before I found the Python script that interprets my blog's RSS feed and allows me to have my blog mirrored on my website I investigated Google's Blogger as a way of getting my blog on to my website. This ultimately failed because I wanted to have all my past entries added to Blogger, which had to be done manually since this was before we could export our blogs. So my Blogger account sat there until just now when I randomly clicked the bookmark that's also been sitting around doing nothing since then.
In the profile is a "Random Question"; I kept telling it to generate new ones until I got one that inspired me, as it were…
I eventually settled for
How is an ankle unlike a consequence?
The random answer I came up with it, unfortunately, about 300 characters longer than their 150 limit, so I decided to blog it instead:
Well it's all relative, you see. If we take "ankle" to be "the bit between your leg and your foot" and we take "consequence" to be "what follows from an action", then we can quite clearly see that you'd find it very difficult to walk on a consequence and you'd be hard pushed to have your actions result in an ankle. But, of course, if we actually exist in a Universe where actions do not lead to consequences, and any examples of such are mere coincidence, then the whole issue falls to pieces and we are left with just an ankle that won't do anything…
Well, it amused me at least…
