We knead a list.

Questions

  1. Who doesn’t love a list?
  2. Who are these people who don’t love lists? Did they have a past traumatic experience involving a list?
  3. What do they do when they go food shopping?
  4. Are they just in denial or too hipster to admit the use of lists? On futher investigation/interogation will we reveal to them they have subconciously being using lists all their lives, and in fact love lists?
  5. At what point does a list become a list? At it’s embrionic stage of a mind list? Once it is verbalised? Must it be written down before it becomes a list. What is the minimum number of items that must be written down before it becomes a list. Is 1 item enough? If not, what about 1 item with a list subject heading?

    I believe I can help you with one or two of these.

    Questions. 5—can a list be a list with just one item?
    Yes. Not only that, you can have a list with 0 items. here is a list with 0 items, I wrote it in C#:
    public List myGoodList = new List();

    Inventions to make—The toaster. Someone else has already beaten you to it, although I don’t believe it’s available commercially anywhere:

    More questions.—● Ordered Lists. A lettered list is also an ordered list, it’s just been ordered with letters rather than numbers, you can use any symbols you like, provided they come in a sequence you recognise. If you want to share the list then you probably need a sequence of symbols recognised by society at large too. Here are some examples:
    I,II,III,IV,V
    α,β,γ,δ,ε
    H,He,Li,Be,B

    Hope this has been a help. I’m always pleased to read the thoughts of another list fan.

      Thanks! Love the empty list 😀 In Lithuania i noticed the days of the week were shown everywhere as Roman numerals instead of the names of the days as one would typically use. Nice that in the context of MTWTFSS each letter represents a sequence and numerical value, but out of order losses it’s context and therefore it’s numerical association. Oh, and that T is both 2 and 4, and S is 6 and 7 is nice. My thought for the day 🤔
