Then I guess you'll have to do it as a mental exercise rather than packing 10^80 lunches for the voyage.

You mean to tell me that after such careful thought into the practicality of the voyage, you have no concerns about the fact that you'd turn to dust long before you made any significant progress on the journey?

I get that. My tongue-in-cheek response was because it had absolutely nothing to do with what I wrote.

And, as a disinterested third party, *I'm* glad people are so quick to take offense to obvious sarcasm.

Thanks, Hank. I might need to pick up a new model; mine must be on the fritz.

You mean if they search along the circumference of the universe for Shakespeare? What a strange notion. Or perhaps you replied to the wrong post.

If you're off by nearly the width of a human hair, it's not a perfect circle now, is it? Sheesh.

You can navigate in a perfect circle, but when you reach the end of the perfect circle there will be a little left over because the number you were using for pi to calculate the circumference was off.

However, don't let me interrupt what must be a satisfying eye roll for you. I'm glad to see cowards on Slashdot have remained as polite as ever.

If you memorize up to the first zero in pi, you can navigate the circumference of the universe in a perfect circle and when you get to the end of the circle (based on the digits of pi you memorized) you'll be off by less than the width of a human hair.

Anyone know if it's possible to do this for Slashdot? Every single post read, every login, every IP address, perhaps supposedly anonymous posts, every moderation, etc. And with Slashdot, there isn't the ability to even delete anything. The only saving grace is that most people don't attach their real names to their accounts.

You may be right... I'm making up my own definitions of active and passive as I don't know how these are legally defined in terms of rules of engagement, etc. and whether or not North Korea gives a rat's ass about what other countries think the definitions are.
