This thread, a continuation of "Having Fun Wrong (WFG: Mach II)", which may now be closed, is a thread about NOTHING! This will be to the ever-increasing enjoyment of our favorite meta-critic.

Nothing is a very deep subject that scrambles my mind if I think about it too hard.

Let us calmly reflect on the nihilism of it all.

Chris S., get in here!
We have to prove our favorite meta-critic correct, that we brainiacs on both sides of the pond have such time on our hands that we can post ad nauseum. :)

So then, a difference that makes no difference is no difference?

Someone call?

Brainiacs is a British reality show that aired on Sky One from 13 November 2003 to 30 March 2008. During each episode of the show, numerous experiments are carried out to verify whether common conceptions are true (such as whether it is possible to run across a pool of custard) or simply to create impressive explosions. The show centres on the three core branches of science for the key stages in British education: chemistry, physics and to a lesser extent, biology. The experimenters on the show are referred to as "Brainiacs", and each episode usually finishes with the destruction of a caravan.

That may or may not be appropriate. Shall we yadda yadda yadda over it, just in case?
