perhaps Aurino is more familiar with musical notes

I'm actually preparing a 7,684-line post describing how I can derive most of physics through the mathematical properties of chords. Someone needs to compete with Alan after all.

By the way, here's a good one:

An American visiting Vienna for the first time walks by Beethoven's grave and hears some strange noises. On close hearing he realizes it's the sound of the ninth symphony played backwards. So weird! He hangs around for about an hour, just to see what happens. The sound stops and then starts again. This time it's the eighth symphony, again played backwards.

The man is puzzled. He sits there a long time waiting if someone can explain it to him. By the time someone who speaks English passes by, the sounds coming from the grave are of the third symphony, still backwards. The man asks the passerby:

- What is that?
- Zat? Zat vhat?
- This strange sound coming from Beethoven's grave?
- Oh, zat! You don't know vhat zat iz?
- No, I don't, please tell me!
- Vell, zat iz ze sound ov Herr Beethoven decomposing!

and perhaps I am more familiar with cavils

Hey Harv, you're lightening up! That's great!
