Make the number bigger.
So that you can make the number get bigger faster.
"Why would I want that?"
To make the number get even bigger.

"The number's not big enough to make the number get bigger faster yet."
It will be big enough sooner than you think.

"I decided I don't care about making the number bigger anymore."
That's okay, it will get bigger while you're gone. You'll be back.

"What's this other number?"
It gets bigger when the regular number gets bigger.
That helps the regular number get bigger.

"The number isn't getting much bigger anymore. I guess eventually there won't be anything left to do and I'll be done."
Oh look the rules changed. Now the number is big enough that you would have been done, but now there's a bit more to do.
"So it's exactly the same as before?"
No, the number is bigger.

    I take the point, but then one could say much the same thing about people following football matches (insert footy code of your choice).

    "Our team is going to win the championship!"
    "Too bad, your team lost."
    "No problems, there's always next year, that will be our year."

    "why are there clouds"
    well, clouds are made of water that has been evaporated

    "yes, but why"
    because when you heat up water it evaporates and makes a cloud

    "but why does the water heat up"
    because of the sun, it produces light that has energy, and-

    "but why are the clouds white while the sky is blue"
    well, the sky is blue because of the air molecules in our atmosphere, and when the sun rays arrive on earth there is a diffraction with the-

    "but why does it does that and not something else"
    i suppose we just have to accept how things are, but-

    "that's dumb, why can't the sky be purple and the clouds lime green? that would be fun"
    the sky does change colour when the sun goes down, it's because-

    "your argument is dumb, i wans purple sky and lime green clouds"

    Tune in next time for our explanation on why watching people play videogames instead of playing videogames is stupid, why shooter games will make your kids violent, and why you should definitely not listen to this type of music because it's mainstream and that means it's evil and you have bad taste.

    Getting way off topic here, but the above post reminds me of the Calvin and Hobbes cartoon in which Calvin's dad explains to Calvin the reason why old photos and old movies are in black and white. The reason has nothing to do with camera or film technology, he says; it's because at that time the whole world actually WAS black and white, and only started to acquire colour some time in the 1930's. "It was pretty grainy colour for a while, too."
