don't get it
oh wait now i sort of dogood one
It's Adam's joke. What do you mean sort of, do you get it or not???
i get it nownice
What a long strange loop it's been...I came by and saw this yesterday, and didn't altogether get it, in part (it turns out) because Hofstadter's name didn't ring a bell. I've certainly known of Godel, Escher, Bach for decades -- it sat on the shelf in at least half of the hippie apartments I hung out in once long ago -- though I've never read it myself, and hadn't ever made a point of remembering who wrote it.This has never not been my least favorite non-joke, which is a lie if I'm telling the truth and is not a lie if I'm not telling the truth, but this might not be the case.Word verification is "essenshi," which I think proves the point. Yup, right down to the bare essenshi.
Not getting the not quite getting it. My brother made this up like 10 years ago and I still love it. Oh well.
