Calculation of space and time[edit]

Just thought everyone should know: Space and time are not calculated by any meaningless relationship between interplanetary magnetism and solar radation. They are calculated instead in a four-dimensional Minkowski manifold. XD Sanderling 04:35, 30 December 2006 (UTC)

I don't know how I've survived all my life without knowing that... (grin)StanislavJ 23:40, 29 October 2007 (UTC)

"Parody"[edit]

Regarding edits of 11/9/07 and 11/10/07: FWIW, a "parody" is a takeoff on the substance of a work itself -- a play, movie, song, etc. -- in whole or part. It does not seem proper to use that term in reference to a simple play on words such as the title of this short -- calling it a "pun" seems more appropriate. Besides, using "parody" in that context might lead a reader to believe that the short itself is a parody of the referenced movie, which it is not. (Example: If I wrote a book about the travails of a suburban vegetable gardener, I might title it "War and Peas" -- a funny [depending on your taste] pun on the title of the famous work, although the book itself would not be considered a parody of same.)StanislavJ 22:58, 10 November 2007 (UTC)
