Mobius Logic

Today is My Bucket's Got A Hole In It Day! In case you are unaware of the song that today is based off of, follow this link to give it a quick listen. I'll wait for you to get back.


Done? Okay.

As you can tell, this is one of those songs made to annoy the listener, and staying true to the style, it can very easily be looped. This is even worse than "I know a song that gets on everybody's nerves" because THIS song has a problem that could very easily be solved. Unfortunately for the problem, two people who can't solve a problem if their buckets depended on it are trying to do the solving. This song was made in germany, though, and if there's anything I know about german children's stories its that they portray stupid or haughty children getting into stupidly painful (or in this case painfully stupid) predicaments or deaths. So I suppose, in a way, it could be seen as a warning to not be so incredibly dumb as to not see that you are making the problem an endless loop of anti-progress.

You can celebrate today one of two ways.
1) DON'T make your problems worse by being so unknowledgeable that you just get caught in an endless cycle of 'square-ones'. Eventually you won't even know the original problem. (Wait... were we cutting hay or sharpening a knife? Why is this rock so dry and why do I care?)
2) You can totally do that.

Thanks for reading!
