Poll: Who is number one?

February 23rd, 2003

[Number Two from the Prisoner]No, it hasn’t got too much to do with The Prisoner [Order from] , but Michele pointed me towards the What Number Are You? quiz. After confirming that I do exist, how I feel about other people and whether or not I like maths it says that:

I am the number
I am friendly

Hmm, yep, I would declare myself as friendly – but people say “oh – don’t worry about him: he’s just being friendly” about a dog that’s about to savage your leg off…

Ever wondered what the laws of Physics that popular cartoon characters have to abide by are? Well, the research has been done and so I present the Cartoon Laws Of Physics:

Law 1
Any body suspended in space will remain in space until made aware of its situation.

Example: Wile E Coyote chases the Roadrunner off the edge of a cliff and keeps running until he looks down and realises he’s in midair – then gravity takes over and the familiar rule of 32 feet per second per second takes over.

Law 2
Any body in motion will tend to remain in motion until solid matter intervenes suddenly.

Example: Whether shot from a cannon or in hot pursuit on foot, cartoon characters are so absolute in their momentum that only a telephone pole or an outsize boulder retards their forward motion absolutely. Sir Isaac Newton called this sudden termination of motion the stooge’s surcease.
