My gedankenexperiment re RA: TAE Word for the Day


Now this, ladies and gents, is a proper word–the sort that makes fedoralady sit up and take notice!
gedankenexperiment: (noun) a thought experiment; an experiment carried out in imagination only.

The etymology: today’s word comes from the German word gedanke (thought) + experiment. Earlier documented use: 1913.

The sight of Gizzy tied to a tree makes me consider a gedankenexperiment in which I attempt to undo all the straps and buckles to his Milanese designer threads before he can work the ropes loose. What gedankenexperiment would you like to perform on/with an RA ChaRActer?
