Not only are you on rock traveling at 78,000 miles per hour through space

It might be in a black hole. That is interesting.

Stupid universe. Always pissing me off. Now, more evidence that there’s more than one. I’m outnumbered.

    The fact that we can’t see anything outside our universe (or THE universe if you prefer) means that we are inside an event horizon. (Which is complicated way of saying you have no information to what happens outside, if there even is an outside.)

    One of the things characterized by an event horizon is a black-hole.

    Personally I think this is a stupid way of looking at things. But then I feel that way about a lot of physics.

    Astrophysics is one of the fields where no one knows what the hell they are doing, and their primary assumptions change regularly.

    The current rage – dark matter – was postulated so that no changes would need to be made to the existing gravitational equations. Personally I would assume that since my equations don’t describe the macro behavior of the universe that the equations are wrong. But then my ego isn’t big enough to let me be an astrophysicist.

    It’s been a few years. Are you at the phase where you’re pondering the universe again?

    By definition, there can be only one universe. To say that there may be multiple “universes” is a misstatement. Though there may be parts of the universe we can never observe, the fact is that the term has no plural.

    Lyle is correct, even if they don’t have damn clue about the universe, they should have a clue about grammar.

    Multiple Cosmoses. Hey, I just read “Anathem.”! Platonic Ideals may well leak from cosmos to cosmos.

    Sadly, really high-performance high-pressure high temperature steam plants seem to be out of fashion in destroyers in this universe.

    Gas turbines may be efficient, but are not as cool&manly as steam.

    Looking forward to the discovery of the “Probability Broach” type of alternate universe. I could do without the talking chimps, however.

After several weeks of taking Viagra, I got used to it and took the drug only on the weekends. Noticing the changes, my girlfriend started to ask me why I'm so active on weekends. I had to honestly confess everything. She was not upset but supported me. So thanks to Viagra, I made sure that I'm loved just like the way I am.
