An existentialist post-modern moment

Or it might be if I knew what that meant.

Yesterday in work Chris asked me if I had any one-sided paper.

One sided paper?

I understand existential post modernity, but not one sided paper.

You have to laugh! The things people ask for! Remind me to tell you the story of the cricket box! LOL!

How to make one-sided paper.

Tear (him) off a strip.
Twist the strip by a half turn.
Glue the ends together.
You now have a loop with a 1/2 twist in it.

How to test for one-sidedness.

Mark a spot on the surface.
You can now run your finger around the loop keeping on the surface. Eventually you will reach the marked spot again WITHOUT HAVING CROSSED AN EDGE.

This is called a Moebius strip; it is one-sided. QED.

PS: When done with the loop, take a pair of scissors and cut it down the middle along the loop and see what you get :-)

It doesn't sound very eco-friendly.

Indeed, dragonstar.

Nick, I just looked at him. What?!

I don't think he can claim lack of sleep so it must be a different dimension, hippy mama.

I will, mrs nesbitt.

Oh please don't, stu. My mind can't take that in.

ellee, actually what he meant was 'do you have any scrap paper that has been used for printing on one side that i can use again?' So very eco-friendly! Just confusing.

I know, cherrypie. Some things almost sound sensible - and then you think about it!

I'll remember that, jams!

That's handy too, mutley.
