...watching cats that watch the cats go by.
Eye to eye.
They solemnly to make the scene.
They're double posting to watch cats by.

They solemnly convene to make the scene.

I have no idea how these people got their cats wedged into their scanners^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^Hinfinity, or why.

This is like a quadruple posting, or worse, isn't it?

you'd think that by searching various phrases involving the url of infinitecat and infinitecat.com, i'd avoid a double post.

and i used google and mefi searches too. dammit.

The only way to avoid double-posting is either:
1) type in all related phrases into Google, including the cat's grandmother's maiden name
2) reading and memorising every thread that appears on blue.

This would only be an infinite project if the original cat (Frankie) was pictured looking at the latest cat, wouldn't it?? Otherwise it's a sequential cat project, isn't it?? I am waiting for Schrödinger to send in his picture(s).

So this is why they invented the internet!

Excellent.

Maybe we can run our own project here: where someone snarks or gripes about something someone posted and then someone snarks about that bitching, etc, etc...

A sequence can still be infinite - such as the set of natural numbers, for example.

Nice site. Seen it, but a nice site anyway.

Not if you're a constructivist mathematician, it can't. Or a midget.

Somehow I missed this on previous posts. Laughed out loud - this is true art.

Of course, the web creator had to interject politics into his project.

Thanks, PurrrrrrrisPurrrrramus - I hadn't noticed, but thanks to you, he made a few sales. And my American partner got a laugh and decided to throw $50 to Kerry/Edwards.

For something to be infinite it has to be without beginning or end; hence the symbol of an 8 on it's side showing an endless, beginningless situation. A sequence of numbers has a definite starting point, rendering it finite.

If Frankie were to be shown looking at the last cat, then the loop of images would be (sorta) infinite.
