    How Do You Measure

    In the song The First Noel how did he know the night was deep and how is the depth of a night measured?

    Poetic license and or translation, I think the original lyrics were "A winter's night both cold and bleak"

    Or maybe you were looking for parallax or cepheids or redshift or type 1A supernovae?

    You know, if you have got this much free time on your hands you could always come over and help me get the Christmas lights set up. I could use the extra hands... just thought I would throw it out there.
    Quickly, I must hurry, for there go my people and I am their leader!

    Exercising the mind could be considered work

    You shouldn't have told me that VTP99 because now my mind is working trying to figure out how to quit working.

    You should take your mind to a tropical beach and put a beer in its hand. It will figure out what to do from there.

    If you are concerned about going to a bad beach then you can send me and I’ll scout it out for you. Just cover the costs, I’ll supply my time for free. It’s a curtesy I’m willing to do for you.

    The depth of a Night is most accurately determined by comparing how closely the sound of the spoken word aligns with the sound of speaking the word Sheep.
