It wasn't that a llama was eating the remains of his birthday cake. It wasn't the ceiling fan on the floor. What Ro'd'elln could not fathom is how he was hovering two feet off off the ground, that's when his high broke and Ro'd'elln realized he was on the Gravitron at the carnival. Duh. Ro'd'elin came down just as the Gravitron lost its spin. But then something fantasmal happened. He and his date Ma'nu'lu were lifted out of the ride by a tractor beam from an invisible source. Ma'nu'lu said, "It must be grabbing us at the skin level because somehow we are going up naked", but in her own language. Ro'd'elin knew what she meant & took a moment even as they were being lifted towards the mothership, now visible above them, to appreciate Ma’nu’lu’s naked body. This was turning out to be a great first date. She was a bit unusual...even for his own eccentric tastes in Targerian women. Ma'nu'lu, naked, looked a lot more like a Ziptallian woman--8 breasts, instead of 7, 4 butt cheeks instea -d of one, and a tiny penis growing from something that looked like a lotus flower on her forehead. But oh, that Ma'nu'lu could bust moves like an Orion slave dancer. He asked for Her hand in marriagevand she said she had to think about it. The pistil was eager to be pollinated and tjr lotus flower was juatva bit hesitant. She asked her father the God of Mathematics if she could be allowed to return to Mandelgrad and bring her fiancé along. It said it had forgiven her and they could come, but flora and fauna never thrived in M Mandelgrad (after all, it was bankrupt, and it had been for the past 20 years), but she returned anyway--with her fiancé...and with her lover, Archimedes. Every day was Math day!

Nice finish DasaniLife! I like to think of Archimedes with his fiancé in a place called Mandelgrad…
@Blasted: Is Mandelgrad somewhere along the filigrine coastline of Mandelbrot Island?

Mandelgrad was on the Soviet occupied end of Madelbrot Island.

@Slim: Mandelgrad is somewhat inland but has a nice view of the coastline, as well as being conveniently located near The Zone.  But we should also advise interested tourists, that in Mandelgrad somewhere is you.

I have a non-zero value protrusion in several dimensions but let’s keep that on the low down.
