Having my way with Ulysses

Kick it away and let them fight for it.

It is not given to you, nor to any other Being, to behold my internal parts. I am of a different order of Beings from those in Flatland. Were I a Circle, you could discern my intestines, but I am a Being, composed as I told you before, of many Circles, the Many in the One, called in this country a Sphere.8:24 pm

I wish to God those stupid kids hadn’t brought me round to the beach in the first place.  Going around and around over me day in and day out, you can’t blame me for feeling deflated.  And then that little pin head deliberately kicked me as hard as he could and I had no choice but to get right in the middle of the work going on between that pervy guy in black and Gerty.  She might have thought her eyes were masked by her hat, but you’d have to be dense as a bowling ball not to see the exchange of energy going on between those two bodies.  You didn’t see? You didn’t catch it?  Here, I’ll spell it out for you: Work = 1/2mv – 1/2 mu2.  No? Huh. You seem like a well rounded person, I didn’t mean to expose your ignorance or anything.  I always assume people speak my language too.  You’re not two dimensional, are you?  You look round enough.  Here, I’ll take it back a step: Ek = 1/2 mv and when you apply the kind of force Gerty did (I’m talking take two, you understand, how do you kick a ball and miss? Sheesh.) with her skirt hiked up to Canada, you could see her Yukon Territories!  Well these sorts of exchanges between bodies have their own momentum.   I’m sure you don’t need me to tell you for a point mass m rotating about an axis at distance r, the angular momentum, L equals (mv)r = (mar)r = mrw where w is the angular velocity of the body. You know, in radians per second. So clearly, the I = mr between Gerty and Pervy was at this point through the roof and the only way Edy and Cissy could mask their delight at the creepiness of it all was to laugh at Gerty for missing me the first time round.  But everybody knew.

Intercourse, eyeball to eyeball.
