Go Ahead, Laugh, But …

Cedar Point Amusement Park advertisement: July 1 - 4, Fireworks All 4 Nights! See them in 3D on July 4th!
You know, for hyperdimensional beings, seeing someting in only three dimensions has to be like when you’re a kid and you can spend an hour pressing hard on your eyeball so that your sibling appears as two ghostly figures and one scrawny, vase-like middle figure. So the advertising might be aimed at them instead.

I’ll have you know that Cedar Point’s opening-weekend promotion, “Come Rub Up Against Some Lumps Of Matter”, was an enormous hit. And they did nearly as well for Flag Day’s “Experience This Sequence Of Odors” festival. So coming to see a thing be visible in three dimensions is a natural follow-up and sure to be popular.

Also popular? Please? Reading comic strips with mathematics, like I do over on my other blog. I get into a weird discussion about whether, like, “two” exists.
