Hello Geoffrey! I did this one yesterday or the day before. You and Q, huh? :)That's cool. By the way, I like how you changed the word from death to transition. Enjoy your weekend. Peace~

Geoffrey Philp said...

Stephen,, transition seems to be a better word because it's all consciousness.

Enjoy your weekend, my brother.

Amazing how this meme is a history lesson of sorts. The Q hisself, huh? I wonder if 14 March breeds lyrical folk as a rule.

Pi Day was a new one for me. I remembered Eli Whitney from history lessons in Lesotho when I was a kid.


Geoffrey Philp said...

Yeah, me and Q
I like Pi and the definition from Wikipedia: The mathematical constant π is a transcendental (and therefore irrational) real number.

I'm going to participate. Check my blog. My birthday's March 25.

By the way, a resident of The Bahamas by the name of Joseph Eve patented the cotton gin before Eli Whitney. For a number of reasons -- primarily the fact that his gin was designed to deparate sea island cotton, which grew in The Bahamas and the coastal USA, but not on the majority of the American cotton plantations -- Whitney's revolutionized the cotton industry, which was dominated by the continent.

Great meme. But I'll participate on my birthday, April 6th.
