Really? I though it might prove quite interesting. Dancing around on the
edges of paradox seems to be one of our primary mutual interests on this
list. I, personally, would like to see a little discussion on this topic,
but I'd have to brush up on my Godel before I dove in on it myself.

But first a little interpertive dance about a paradox I once knew...
