The Tell-Tale Snark



Some more mathy stuff from that mad mathman sans pareil, the Rev. C.L. Dodgson, better known as Lewis Carroll to our plucky Fellowship of the Snark …

There’s a long story behind this stanzel which is really worth reading, but which I shall not repeat here since it would disturb my monastic sense of indolence.

Besides, where else can you Google « Arthur Gordon Pym » and « the hunting of the snark » and find the results to be perfectly and exactly true … and thus logically superfluous in this, the best of all possible hellishly cybernetic worlds?
