attention spans

more than one catwalk on fashion shows so trend setters work that span of attention.

All that is need is to train on eye on one catwalk and the other on the other. It is of course problematic if there is more than two catwalks and fabrics used are more flowing and nebulous.

       Don't worry, [pash], no-one else understands [wjt] either ... apparently, not even [wjt] ...   

       It is normal to tag such ideas with "[marked-for-explanation]. But don't get your hopes up that an explanation will actually be forthcoming ...

       Logical conclusion to this is that if you double the number of catwalks, then you halve the number of sequential cats that walk, and so if you have the same number of catwalks as cats then they can all walk at once. Now if you have that many catwalks they will all have to be quite short, otherwise they would not all fit into the same building. Maybe only long enough for one step. Maybe not even. Then they would be catstands. Now you have all the cats standing at once, for a single moment, and then the event is over. At this point it is easier to make a photography of the cats and publish it and lo! the furry kittens calendar is invented.

       no one calls them catwalks anymore..... they're known as runways now by the happy shiny fashion people.

       // runways //   

       Is calling them that an example of plane language ?

       "plane language?"

       Yes, if they're flat.

       We're inclined to agree.

       //if they're flat//
Hmm.. a "non-flat" catwalk/runway would make the walk more interesting; get a bit more movement from the models (including the special case of walking on an uneven surface in very tall stiletto heels...).

       That will never take off.

       Presumably the staff running the shows have to organise lots of clothes hangars ...

       That would be the job of the props department.

       If they're runways now, could there be shortened ones with catapults and arrestors? Elastic webbing might be appropriate for both. I'm seeing roller skates and a power- assisted back somersault. wouldn't that be the right way to launch a new range?

       Two separate double slit experiments spatially next to each other, shouldn't effect each other should they? Attention span on the EM space, is my guess on what I was thinking.
