in reply to The shortest distance between my keyboard and the Monastery is:
Zeno's paradox becomes all the more perplexing in the world of Perl. The infinite number of infinitesimally small distances converges to 1. (I used the ratio test to figure that out. I couldn't use the root test too effectively since there weren't any exponents involved.) So I voted for that, and so far I'm with the majority.
A quantum leap makes some sense, but I don't know the wavefunction of Perl, let alone its Hamiltonian. The product of the position and momentum changes when I click on this site happens to be MUCH larger than hbar.
Maybe Perl exists in infinitedimensional Hilbert space... I'd add something about that to our voting options. Or better yet, the shortest distance might only be found by using the Kronecker delta.
