The joke’s on you, because PATH goes to Penn Station, not Grand Central!


I dreamed that I was asked to develop a hill-avoiding bike route from my childhood home. Along the way, I rode through a daycare playroom (twice, due to a spiral path), met Madonna, the ghost of Alec Baldwin's wife, a team from The Amazing Race trying to figure out which PATH train goes to Grand Central (trick question!) and waited for the next train with a supervillain who demonstrated his powers by using his stretchy arms to punch one of my colleagues who was standing ten feet away and who electrocuted another colleague's pacemaker by force of will.

Yes, I know that Alec Baldwin is not a widower, and my colleague does not have a pacemaker, but I guess my subconscious doesn't care.

    Except Kim Basinger's career has been dead for years.

    Be careful not to ride the PATH train too long.

    Weird, on my machine PATH is /usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/usr/local/bin.

    If the path spirals so as to pass through the playroom twice, but has no hills, then that means it has to cross itself, and then there's a possibility that two riders would collide.  I'm afraid we're going to have to dock points for this design flaw.

    Technically Raymond, the PATH goes *near* Penn Station, not directly into it.  You have to get up the street level and walk over a block.

    @Joe: Not neccessarily :) It could pass through the playroom, soiral inwards, missing the playroom entirely, then twist around into an outward spiral going 'parallel' to the first spiral and pass through the playroom a second time.

    Might be  a bit far fetched but it's early in the morning because of 'summertime' and I'm not entirely sure I am awake.
