    That’s deep.

    When is a gate not a gate?

    When it’s ajar! Bwa ha ha ha ha ha I kill me!

    Oh great. That’s done my head in … or out.


  4. vegan says:

    but it us open or shut at all times – can it be otherwise?


  5. The Bartender's skills with a Manhatten says:

    The sign is not supportive of Schrodinger’s paradox. It smerely tates that the gate must be open OR shut at all times. This is perfectly plausible: the gate is either open or shut, after all. If the sign insisted that the gate be both open AND shut at all times, then we’d be talking locked-door dual-reality wavelength-collapsing stuff.


    • Rolly says:

      ……and the state of neither open nor shut?


    • Bill O'Slatter says:

      The interpretation of this statement hinges on the word “OR”. It could either be open or shut , we don’t know. We have to wait until we observe it ( what we are seeing here is merely a photograph of the gate not its current evolutionary state) , at which time its wave function collapses and its either in a closed or open state.
      At the moment the controversy in observed un-spring loaded gate theory is as to whether we need an observer or not.


  6. The Bartender's skills with a Manhatten says:

    How the the “s” in “states” link up with the word “merely?” Possibly only a half-live, half-dead cat can know.

    If the horse gets out, could youse bastards round it up please?


  8. Bag O'Turnips says:

    I can make out the faded red letters of “LOCKED” in the centre of that (still very ambiguous) sign.

    Thus, it can be open or shut, so long as it’s locked.

    What would be the consequences should the gate not be padlocked? A cataclysmic rent in the time-space continuum, landing in a total state of confusion at two places at once in Moora? Now that’s the stuff nightmares are made of. Well at least for me!

    at first I found this sign very confusing so I looked up ‘Willeton Gate’ on wikipedia:

    “One way to think of the Willeton gate is as a set of points satisfying certain relationships, expressible in terms of distance and angle. For example, there are two fundamental operations on the gate. One is translation, which means a shifting of the gate so that every point is shifted in the same direction and by the same distance. The other is rotation about a fixed point in the gate, in which every point in the gate turns about that fixed point through the same angle. One of the basic tenets of Willeton geometry is that two figures (that is, subsets) of the gate should be considered equivalent (congruent) if one can be transformed into the other by some sequence of translations, rotations and reflections.”

    it’s an open and shut case really

    Sign also at the Belmont Forum, as featured on a greeting card purchased recently from a particularly good store in Vic Park.


  12. The Legend 101 says:

    THATS SO STUPID!, a gate is for opening and shutting and its pretty ovious, im not trying to be critical but everyone can read a sign if they want but this is really dumb and i dont get why its there and anyone please tell me wheres Belmont Forum and is it a shopping centre.
