    Been away for awhile..

    Whoa, hold on a second Brian, I wasn't saying that you had no understanding of what Kaku was expressing (actually after re-reading your comment you apparently didn't think I was saying that either...well anyway..), what I was saying (apparently badly) was that in comparison to the believes you have expressed in this thread some of Kaku's ideas are fairly radical & I wouldn't think you would agree with them.

    If you took it as a backhanded insult I apologize, but trust me when I say that I harbor no ill will whatsoever towards anyone in this thread, it is just an interesting conversation and that's all.


    The Cthulhu Babies still like me.......in a nice hollandaise sauce...

    I apologize, Kevin. I jumped to conclusions I shouldn't have, and I was completely out of line. You're absolutely right: it's all in good fun.

    [Edit: I guess my people skills could use some work after all.]

    If this is a ploy to give me a wedgie, I'm not falling for it. Been there, done that.

    (Seriously, though, thanks for understanding.)

    Wow....do you think the feel good attitude of the last few posts had an adverse effect on the thread in general?
    What does that say about us?[​IMG]

    sh.....should I make a joke about space spiders?


    No..I know..um..SCREW YOU BRIAN! YOU...YOU PRICK!! YOU DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT SCIENCE!!

    Kevin, that was truly a valiant effort, but it appears that your jumper cables were just a bit too short. I think you and I have utterly killed this thread.

    I don't know about you, but I choose to believe that this thread died because you and I left everybody else speechless.

    That's my story, and I'm sticking to it. [​IMG]

    Either that or it became an infinite force vs the immovable object exercise [​IMG] Since nobody was really changing positions eventually things die down. Although you would have thought that Cthulhu Babies are enough to brighten any conversion [​IMG]

    Maybe we should have shifted to simpler problems like you are in a space ship travelling at the speed of light, and you turn on your headlights. What happens? [​IMG]

    Well if the thread has indeed ran it's natural course then I think we should end it on a song....and I can't think of a more appropriate song than this...


    Just.....re...member that you're standing on a planet that's evolving
    And revolving at nine hundred miles an hour,
    That's orbiting at nineteen miles a second, so it's reckoned,
    A sun that is the source of all our power.
    The sun and you and me and all the stars that we can see
    Are moving at a million miles a day
    In an outer spiral arm, at forty thousand miles an hour,
    Of the galaxy we call the 'Milky Way'.

    Our galaxy itself contains a hundred billion stars.
    It's a hundred thousand light years side to side.
    It bulges in the middle, sixteen thousand light years thick,
    But out by us, it's just three thousand light years wide.
    We're thirty thousand light years from galactic central point.
    We go 'round every two hundred million years,
    And our galaxy is only one of millions of billions
    In this amazing and expanding universe.


    The universe itself keeps on expanding and expanding
    In all of the directions it can whizz
    As fast as it can go, at the speed of light, you know,
    Twelve million miles a minute, and that's the fastest speed there is.
    So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
    How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
    And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
    'Cause there's bugger all down here on Earth.


    SOD OFF FRIENDS![​IMG]

    To return the thread to its roots....that scenario is a logical impossibility. [​IMG]

    Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my size, do you? Hmm? Hmm. And well you should not. For my ally is the Force, and a powerful ally it is. Life creates it, makes it grow. Its energy surrounds us and binds us. Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter. You must feel the Force around you; here, between you, me, the tree, the rock, everywhere, yes. Even between the land and the ship.

    Well now we know the answer [​IMG] The infinite force (Robert, Jeff, Ken, Brian, and Brad) give out before the immovable object (Steve and Kevin) [​IMG] Or was I an immovable object, I forget [​IMG]

    Hey man, I try to stay away from the whole "anal probe - science can't explain love" arena of argument as often as possible. Don't lump me in there with Steve quite so easily.[​IMG]



    ....that was a rather disturbing train of thought......

    Well, that's what my pet Cthulhu Baby told me before he devoured the mailman (actually it sound more like eergggghhharrrghhhh, but that's how I interpreted it [​IMG] ). See I told you the discussion went on so long it was hard to remember if I was on the light side or dark side [​IMG]

    Apparently it pays not to bend over for the soap when you visit the alien spaceship [​IMG]

    That place... is strong with the dark side of the Force. A domain of evil it is. In you must go.

    [​IMG] Well if that didn't kill this thread I don't know what else to do.[​IMG]
