Someone might want to fix this - I don't know how. When I click the "next" arrow at the top, instead of taking this page to 661, it opens up an entirely new window for 661. 21:10, 18 November 2015 (UTC)

Terry Pratchett made a similar joke to this in Mort: “The only thing known to go faster than ordinary light is monarchy, according to the philosopher Ly Tin Wheedle. He reasoned like this: you can't have more than one king, and tradition demands that there is no gap between kings, so when a king dies the succession must therefore pass to the heir instantaneously. Presumably, he said, there must be some elementary particles -- kingons, or possibly queons -- that do this job, but of course succession sometimes fails if, in mid-flight, they strike an anti-particle, or republicon. His ambitious plans to use his discovery to send messages, involving the careful torturing of a small king in order to modulate the signal, were never fully expanded because, at that point, the bar closed.” 18:50, 7 March 2023 (UTC)

Just commenting to say that "instant" and "moment" are distinctly different measures of time in my view. 12:58, 16 April 2023 (UTC)
