An example of BB's incoherence...

JOG states:
<< 1) Lego blocks are /not/ the same. They always have a different
 location attribute.
 2) Hence their x,y,z position attribute always identifies them.  3) However this identifer is very hard to record and keep track of,  even though it exists. >>.

Bob Badour responds:
<<To amplify, the location might be familiar and perhaps even unique,
but
it is neither simple nor stable. >>
In other words, it can not be a primary key. This is totally incoherent. BB *amplifies* a theory by stating its exact opposite. Location is not a key for LegoBlock. Period. Received on Wed Feb 14 2007 - 09:07:02 CST
