"A Metaphysical Investigation into Decision-Making"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Terry Pratchett uses the phrase "a Trouser-Leg of Time" to explain the concept of what happens when a decision is made, and two different time-lines spawn each in their own reality. It made me think that there is an implication missed, in that if there are two different realities, each in their own trouser-leg, then the point of bifurcation, where that choice is actually made is... well, read for yourself:
Ev'ry decision that you make
Can cause timelines to bifurcate
We travel down the trouser leg of time

So ev'rything that you decide
Makes one more leg down by its side
Some big! Some small! Some inf'nitesimal

Oh, yes, ev'ry decision makes a trouser-leg of time
A trouser-leg of ti-yime
Trouser-leg of time
Ev'ry single decision makes a trouser-leg of time
Another whole realit-ay

And so all grown-up men and boys
Whenever they're making a choice
To cause one more reality to split
And so it's true we can't evade
The very spot that choice is made
The place we make decisions that we take:

Oh, yes, ev'ry decision is made in the crotch of time
Yep, in the crotch of time, yes
In the crotch of time
And so ev'ry decision is made in that spot, sublime
That explains realit-ay


Presidents who makes decisions
Touching millions of lives
Or teenagers deciding what to drink
It's oh, so obvious when you watch
They're only thinking with their crotch
And hence (And hence),
We find (we find)
We know what's on their mind...

Ah-h-h-h-h-h-h-h-h-h-h ah!

For another decision makes another crotch of time
How crotchety is time?
So watch the crotch of time
And so every decision's inspired by the crotch of time
Sure explains realit-ay
