This evening on twitter, some accidental lulz happened.

It all started when a coworker brought his "brand new" Polaroid camera to dinner, and took a picture of a few of us.



jgrafton: Shake it, shake, shake it http://twitpic.com/c7p17




telemenar: @jgrafton *Chuckles* You took a picture of a picture with your cell phone... I feel like more recursion depth is needed.


sageofminerva: @telemenar I think more recursion would be taking a picture of a cell phone picture with your cell phone


telemenar: @sageofminerva you mean like this? http://yfrog.com/7hpszlj




DeMarko: @telemenar I think she meant this http://twitpic.com/c7x09




jgrafton: @telemenar each picture makes me more and more faded!


jgrafton: @DeMarko I can top that http://twitpic.com/c80or




DeMarko: @jgrafton oh it's on http://twitpic.com/c8185




jgrafton: @DeMarko maaaaan http://twitpic.com/c81tb




telemenar: @jgrafton You know we are all insane.


DeMarko: @jgrafton OH GOD HOW DID THIS EVEN- I AM NOT GOOD WITH COMPUTER(S) http://twitpic.com/c829n




jgrafton: @DeMarko I don't even know what's going on anymore http://twitpic.com/c8393




DeMarko: @jgrafton lacking more things to take pictures with/of. I concede


jgrafton: @DeMarko awww.


... [time passes]


DeMarko: @jgrafton but wait! A challenger appears! http://bit.ly/SlY0H




jgrafton: @DeMarko reeecuuursiiiooon http://bit.ly/ljFPX




DeMarko: @jgrafton bravo sir, bravo

believe it or not, I'm having a hard time thinking of how I would reply to my own volley.

I think the closest I could get it using several computer, some of which showing the video full screen at different intervals, some showing alanv's Facebook status, 2 monitors fitting this post, and iPod Touches displaying each of the pics...only then...

[at the dinner table]
bblum: "Don't you want to wait for that to develop a bit more?"
jgrafton: "No, that would defeat the point."

Also, I definitely thought "in b4 yo dawg" while the first picture was being taken. Unfortunately, I had the decency to not say it, and thus there is no evidence of my prophetic thoughts.

There is something... decidedly odd in seeing a Polaroid snapshot in 2009. When I look at your fully developed version, I start to feel like we should all be in "Memento" or something.

so basically, you did the infinite cat project, but with phones instead of cats.
