Fooooooooorrrrrr...
He's a jolly good cortex,
For he's a jolly good cortex,
For he's a jolly good coor-tex,
Which no MeFite can deny!

Thanks, buddy. I’ve always admired those who do the hard work of making a good, smart, and safe place that creates room for a thousand blossoms to bloom. You do that work, at great sacrifice, and with wisdom. Thank you, sir. And I hope you have a lovely birthday.

I'm terribly sorry, I tried baking a cortex cake but I forgot I had the fractal crouton recipe loaded and well instead I turned cortex into some kind of infinitely recursive cortex sponge and now there's either a cortex with infinite surface area or infinite cortexes of nearly zero surface area depending on which dimension you're attempting to taste... err, view the cortex sponge from.

Anyway, have an irrational fragment of a slice, he's delicious.

Heyyyyy, thanks everybody! I had a nice day, got some fancy scotch from my wife, went out to a very good dinner, played a bunch of video games, and did a little friendly chattering and texting. Pretty good simple setup for turning the odometer over.

Happy natal return day to our own Renaissance man, cortex

Now I can't help thinking about our fearless leader doing star jumps with a big square in a circle painted on the wall behind him.

He's not wearing pants.

It's a little disturbing.
