No, because the Mississippi River is not atoms, it's the way atoms
behave when they're organized in a Mississippian way.

I'd be perfectly willing to use the Star Trek transporter, you'd do
so only if somebody put a gun to your head, that sounds like more
than semantics to me.

I probably haven't convinced you of anything in this post but that's because you
only saw a copy of it, I wish you had seen the original it was awesome! I'd write
more but I'm almost out of the letter "a" made from natural organic electrons
and don't want to start using the artificial type, in f ct now I only h ve one left
 nd I need it to sign my n me .
