The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

Why would I want to get inside one of ed's targets?

And if you cut it along its symmetry plane you get two Möbius bands. Or in reverse make a Klein bottle by gluing two Möbius bands together. But I presume you all knew that.

But the "real" (* cough *) Klein bottle doesn't self-intersect.


There is also a Klein (four) group:

Fuck 'em. Always spilling all over the place even when they're sealed. You had ONE job, Klein bottle! Being a bottle! And you suck at it!
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"
