With this theme, even if you don't score tickets, in some parallel universe, rest assured, you did! Quantums always increase the odds. In one universe you are in a 5 hour online queue, in another, 3 and a half hours. And one of you somewhere didn't set the alarm. Does that increase the odds of parallel you getting a ticket? Does this universes you take one for the team?
Even if you don't go, you will.
And if you do, you won't.

Savannah, my dear, I'm not going to worry about scoring a ticket. My current multiverse is an extremely high pressure high temperature environment. It's what happens when you take a PhD in geology and my little mind gets extremely impressed by the combination of lithosphere, asthenosphere, and magnetosphere, along with the mesosphere and core, where iron has a density of 12 g/cu. cm. Compaction pressures we can barely imagine. Heat from Brownian molecular motion gets enhanced in tight quarters, along with the heat from natural radioactive decay. See, I'm taking Plate tectonics this semester, and the Earth still has the seemingly limitless capacity to blow my mind.

Multiple universes? Drop by 177A Bleeker Street in Greenwich Village, and Dr. Strange, master of the mystic arts, might be able to help.

Remember, it's all 'relative'. Use your comfortable frame of reference, but open your heart to other frames.

Hugs to all you crazy wonderful folk. I miss you

How difficult can an "Occam's Razor" theme camp be? I'm sure there's a simple solution....
How many old burners does it take to change a light bulb? Just one to change the bulb..... and five more to reminisce how good the old bulb was....

flexibility is the key to success....... and poor planning is the key to flexibility

Well I was hoping for “Dogs” as the theme but looks like it’s the same old same old...
Oh my god, it's HUGE!
