99 bottles of beer would'nt last an hour. Better start with infinite bottles of beer on the wall unless some nerd gets involved and starts drawing out mathematical quotients.

The problem with infinite bottles is a) the length of the said wall cannot be finitely defined and b) even if it could, the mass of the said object would upset earth's orbit...

Re: Friday boredom

The bad thing today is that most people are watching the wedding stuff and dont post in here.

So us poor people who dont give a s**t about the wedding must find another way to entertain ourselves

Plus the weather is bad

Sorry, I meant infinite number of bottles on the wall.

You are right, but how about if we place the wall with the bottles in a Black Hole where the mass of the bottles will be seriously constricted to fit on the wall.

Even better, the wall with the bottles are travelling at the speed of light and the bottles are actually microscopic in size?

But in that case, you cannot really pass them around now, can you ?

Normal beer can do a lot of damage in copious amounts...add to that them traveling at the speed of light....and we have a potential "End Of The World" scenario...

Re: Friday boredom

How about suggesting (or speculating) places Prince William and Kate should go for their honeymoon?
Probably more fun if you don't really care about them that much.

They could've delayed the space shuttle launch by 24 hours couldn't they?

Any other suggestions?
