  • Titans reproduce via belly-springing?

    *confused*

  • I'm not an omphaloskeptic *snoutpout*

    July 18, 2008

  • That's why the bus was empty.

    Maybe it was performance art...

  • Actually, sionnach, we all are either from the current generation or a previous generation. The next generation is next. Not now. Not yet. Next. See? Tomorrow and tomorrow and all that.

    July 18, 2008

  • So why was the bus empty, sionnach? Here's an open cheque.

  • I hate to say this, but I'm afraid you are all mired in the fuzziest of thinking here. Each of us, at the moment of birth, automatically becomes a member of the next generation, as far as our parents are concerned. So, if you were born of woman, and didn't spring straight from the belly of one of the Titans, then you are a member of somebody's "next generation". By the amount of navel-gazing (or omphaloskepsis, if you prefer) that goes on around Wordie, we can be confident that everyone has a navel. So we are all part of the 'next generation', just as it's always cocktail hour somewhere on earth.

    From a linguistic perspective, this apparent 'difficulty' is a result of the non-absolute nature of the term 'next', perhaps compounded by the non-specific nature of the word 'generation'.

    If you would like an alternate resolution of your paradox, invoking the oddities of time travel and the equivalence of the space-time continuum, it will cost extra.

  • BTW, do time-travellers take astrologers along with them?

    July 18, 2008

  • It's a head-scratcher all right.

    July 18, 2008

  • I think the phrase you're looking for is won't have been.

    July 18, 2008

  • Or even won't be.

    July 18, 2008

  • That'd be time-travellers from someone's next generation then. And dontcry's already proven that that can't be. Or wasn't.

    July 18, 2008

  • Perhaps time-travellers from our future went back to our past, got the bus and added the slogan before driving it around our present.

    July 18, 2008

  • I should tell you, yarb, that if the bus was a time-machine, it did look as if it was past its use-by date. And that's my best oxymoron so far as I know.

    July 18, 2008

  • Ahhhh. That would make sense then.

    July 18, 2008

  • Perhaps the bus was a time-machine?

    July 18, 2008

  • There were no passengers aboard because the next generation isn't here yet...and never will be...'cause they're in the future, which always is ahead of now...?

    July 18, 2008

  • Only the next generation can board this bus and only if accompanied by their mother.

    July 18, 2008

  • I should tell you that there were no passengers aboard.

    July 18, 2008

  • I would definitely like to see that happen. Maybe this is a very cynical bus company?

    July 18, 2008

  • I see, kewpid. But why not the current generation, too?

    July 17, 2008

  • You can transport a lot more people per litre of petrol on a bus than a private car. I guess that's what they mean.

    July 17, 2008

  • Mysterious! Was the bus hovering six feet off the ground?

    July 17, 2008

  • I saw this bus company slogan on the side of a bus today. But what does it mean? Is the conductor a midwife? Or what ....?
