That's a very clever pun.  I'm impressed.

Meanwhile I think I have spotted the flaw in your attempt to prove Phro doesn't exist.

### Re: Double your internet speed?

Hmmmm, why did the post numbers jump from 26 to 28. What happened to post #27?

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.

Hi bobbym

Maybe you should contact MIF about this problem...

The post count skipping some of the numbers...

### Re: Double your internet speed?

You are not getting into the fun aspect of this thread. Phrontister does not exist. Therefore, how can I see his posts or pastes of non existent posts?

I believe there is a message for me in post #29 from an apparition.

### Re: Double your internet speed?

OK Stefy, I'll let you play my game.

"I think, therefore I am" .... "I think"

So I know I exist.

How about you?

I also know that Australia exists, because I flew over it on my way to New Zealand.

And Orion was up-side-down.

And the Sun went backwards across the sky.

So I'm prepared to accept that Phro might exist.

I'll take that as an axiom, because there is less risk of a paradox if he exists.

But he seems to live in a topsy turvy land.

bobbym seems to be getting selective blindness to posts.

I think it may be some sort of repetitive strain injury caused by spending too much time at his computer.

I've seen it happen to him before such as when he told us to ignore everything he says.

And I seem to remember he told us once that he was six years old.

I seem to remember the solution was to ignore some of what he posts.  The difficulty was working out which bits.

### Re: Double your internet speed?

but appears to mean Australia doesn't exist.

If Australia does not exist then how
can phrontister?

And I was just trying to get into the game.

What game? I do remember a phrontister of old. He was mighty and probably immortal, then he went for the cheese... I remember dinetinizing the entire continent of Australia, Tigeree and all.

I am not sure where Bob landed. Sometimes when you want to be in Australia so bad the mind can play tricks, can make it happen. I am sure he was just napping on the plane and dreamt the entire thing.
