Petrified is Edible

From a Google Talk chat this afternoon. Edited for clarity:

Timothy: meatloaf sure is salty!
and gravy

Rebecca: mmmmm! salt......!

Timothy: (is salty)

Rebecca: how true

Timothy: (gravy is salty, not meatloaf is gravy)

Rebecca: also true

Timothy: (meatloaf is not gravy)

Rebecca: you're just full of true statements today, aren't you?

Timothy: i guess you are too!

Rebecca: :P
did you buy lunch today then?

Timothy: i did

Rebecca: maybe when we have lunch together, I should go over there and have meatloaf and gravy!
I've been craving salt all day

Timothy: wow. their rolls are actually not stale

Rebecca: is that the only thing that determines whether a roll is good or not? if it's stale?

Timothy: it is not

Rebecca: oh
how is it then? (besides not stale)

Timothy: it is tolerable

Rebecca: :P

Timothy: stale is not tolerable
tolerable is not stale
tolerable is other things too

Rebecca: like what?

Timothy: tolerable is edible
stale is not edible

Rebecca: stale is edible!

Timothy: no it is not

Rebecca: yes, it is
stale is not enjoyable

Timothy: edible is enjoyable

Rebecca: no, edible is able to be eaten
moldy is edible
petrified is not edible

Timothy: petrified is edible

Rebecca: is not!

Timothy: petrified is enjoyable

Rebecca: what?
you've got your booleans switched around, I think

Timothy: petrified is very tolerable

Rebecca: oh, no I don't think so!

Timothy: i think so

Rebecca: are we talking about the same petrified here?

Timothy: yes we are
there is only one definition of petrified

Rebecca: no, there are two definitions
1. to convert into stone or a stony substance.
2. to benumb or paralyze with astonishment, horror, or other strong emotion: I was petrified with fear.
3. to make rigid or inert; harden; deaden: The tragedy in his life petrified his emotions.
I meant number 1.

Timothy: i meant number 1

Rebecca: a petrified roll is one in which the organic material has been replaced with rock material
a petrified roll = roll made of rock
rock is not edible
petrified is not edible

Timothy: what is salt

Rebecca: !

Timothy: if salt is not edible, why are you craving it

Rebecca: you got me

Timothy: HA!

Rebecca: you win

Timothy: (that was REALLY fun)
petrified is edible

Rebecca: good, I'm glad you liked it!
