Ha Ha! a joke I can't understand... it probably has somthing to do with combinatorics...
Actually, it's topology.. Look up "Klein Bottle". Kind of a Mobius strip in a higher dimension. :) Brilliant comic btw!
Too bad it won't hold any liquid, seeing as how it has no inside and no outside. :)
As described in detail at ACME KLEIN BOTTLES (http://www.kleinbottle.com/) holding liquid is not the main problem. Cleaning the bugger is.
Exactly why I have never filled mine with liquid (yes, I own a glass Klein bottle that I bought from that site).
Whoops, at first I published this as 243 rather than 423.. hopefully it doesn't mess up the ordering in the archive :P
Seems to be fixed now...
You're not very good with numbers are you spiked math
LOL! Good thing I stopped school before the stage where simple math skills
are destroyed. ^_^
He's just a typical mathematician--of which there are three types: those who can count and those who can't.
Probably the most clever joke I've ever seen, good job! :D
awesome klein bottle!!
Hmm surely every made scent and not every possible scent.
This probably goes back to that "finite number of lives" comic :)
I have a couple of Klein bottles at home. :)
Actually it would, the tube that is going in opens at the bottom.
I don't understand the "every possible scent imaginable" bit... Must learn more topology!
uhm... I thought the kleinbottle only contains everything, when it is formed in 4-dimensions, because in 3 dimensions you have to cut a hole in it, and once it has a hole, it has an outside and inside, right?
it does have a hole on it on the bottom
that thing on the bottom is not really a hole, it is just bend material. what I mean is that you would have to actually cut something away if you are trying to make one in 3 dimensions.
No--the hole is in the side, where the tube from the "top" curves over and goes through the side.
However, since it's a surface, the hole doesn't actually give it a second side, and it still doesn't cut space into two parts (inside and outside); it only gives it an edge.
Yeah, good joke -- if it weren't for Brown Sharpie already having published it in 2007:
