Attention all NSers, The Metropole is in great danger, and it needs YOUR help to wipe out the Arabian Empire. To do this, it needs an army and a couple of Skybases. To help it, all it needs is your credit card number, the three numbers on the back, and the expiration month and date. But you have to be quick so that Frievolk can win the war, and achieve the Everlasting Victory!

DYK that there is a book called Flatland? It is a story about the series of 2-dimensional shapes that life their society accordingly to the geographical limitations. The introduction of a 3-dimensional sphere scared them because on a plane, as the sphere passed through, it was seen as a series of growing/shrinking circles.

This might explain why 4-dimension is so hard for us to imagine.
