If 14,000 angels can dance on the head of a pin,
Then this bottle should fit several million in. [infidel, May 12 2011]


       Is this a borg thing?   

       Sounds pretty borging to me.

       I'd like to see hypercube dancing.   

       Escher never designed any dance halls, did he?
sninctown, May 10 2011

       There's a natural progression: line dancing, square dancing, cube dancing (only in microgravity) hypercube dancing (the whole thing would be done in VR, and it would be more like chess than dancing). (Oops, [sninctown] got there ahead of me.)

       Swing your partner once around, allemande up and allemande down.

       Time-traveling square dancing. If I had a time machine, I would enjoy a two-minute dance party with 100 copies of myself, then send myself two minutes back in time, 100 times.

       Where would you find that many masters of Temporal Fugue?
mouseposture, May 10 2011

       In Fourier-Fourier time.
infidel, May 10 2011

       And because of that, [inf], you deserve no mercy whatsoever ...

       [+] bun cubed!

       Fundamental Polygon dancing: if you swing your partner around the wrong way, do they end up inside out?
RayfordSteele, May 11 2011

       Doubt it. Some partners are just irreversably convex.
lurch, May 11 2011

       Will the design give rise to optical isomerism?

       Trying not to imagine Klein Bottle Dancing.
infidel, May 11 2011

       You're a remarkable individual. Most people would have to try very hard TO imagine it.
mouseposture, May 12 2011

       Really? They're not that hard to comprehend. I've posted an image that makes them remarkably easy to visualise for those who have trouble.   

       Just a bottle whose neck passes back through the flask of the bottle and opens via the bottom or side of that flask.

       like cage-dancing, but squarer?
afinehowdoyoudo, May 12 2011

       Like square dancing, but in three dimensions... or more, if you feel square dancing isn't currently a two- dimensional activity.
infidel, May 12 2011

       [infidel] I've purchased Acme's products, and they are three dimensional. A Klein bottle, has 4 (spacelike) dimensions and doesn't pierce itself. (Also, it's Klein Bottle *Dancing* I thought particularly hard to imagine.)
mouseposture, May 12 2011

       Any product marketed under the "Acme" banner causes us grave disquiet.   

       The rocket-assisted rollerblades ("Catch the Roadrunner with no effort !") demonstrated particularly spectacular and unpleasant stability issues, as once ignited there is no control of the thrust or burn time of the solid fuel motors.

       You only fall for the Acme Exploding Birdseed once, or so I'm told.
infidel, May 12 2011

       They may seem three dimensional in your temporal frame of reference, [mouse]. They are definitely accessible in both past and future, so I'd say they're four dimensional.
infidel, May 12 2011

       [infidel] are you the Medium Lobster?
mouseposture, May 13 2011

       Perhaps, perhaps not... Again, your experience of that may be dependent upon your initial referential co-ordinates and whether or not you choose to be bound to a Euclidean space.
