Kinda makes one feel insignificant.

Very cool, can only imagine the amount of time it took to put it together. I also can't believe how insignificant we are and what is even more unreal is how big Gomez's Hamburger is.
You can't tell me that's 90% lean! No way!
Cool link, Rich.

Now if you want to feel even more insignificant, consider that the most advanced physics is leaning towards there being a pretty much infinite number of universes in a multiverse.

How do they think up this stuff? Talk about making numbers say what you want!

A. My theory of the Universe is just as good as anyone else's (and so's yours). Just because I don't do math well doesn't mean my theory is wrong!
B. The farther you can see out into the Universe, the more questions that can't be answered with ANY certainty at all are found in ever increasing numbers.
M. The more questions that arise from looking at or studying the Universe, the larger the number of folks with diverse theories of their own becomes. This creates much sadness in the people who thought that they were right before new theories came along.
H. Most of the "discoveries" about the Universe of late are purely "mathmatical" and untangeble. So, who trusts anybody doing numbers these days? "Distance to Galaxy X"? Can you say, "National Debt" or the "Temperature Humidity Index"?
9. Even if the Universe was totally figured out (any or all of them) what would anyone do with the information? Would I go back in time and bother my Grandfather about his Schrade knife or kill somebody else's for personal profit in this current Universe? Even killing Edward Teller's Grandfather might not have altered the outcome of WWII and one could really feel bad afterward.
B. Michio Kaku has cool hair and knows about "String Theory". I'm working on my "Twine Theory" (A combination of "Fuzzy Thread Dynamics" and the eternal twists of unlimited time).
X. The "Big Bang" occured a relatively short time after a point called "Closing Time" on a Saturday night right there on the fabric of the Universe. This event prevented a "Singularity". I will entertain other's theories on this, but I'm pretty sure I'm right.
7. A most interesting subject, the Universe(s) (or THE Universe). I've got a starter set of Snap On Quantum Mechanic's tools right out in the shop. Mine say "Made in the Universe" on 'em. The interesting thing about these tools is that they won't tighten stuff, they only will loosen..
One thing we all can agree on I believe, is that The Universe makes for interesting flat screen TV programming. These Universe type programs can be shown in 2 different rooms simultainously at the same time, or on different times of the day at the same time, and at times while 1 or more different people are watching them separately or together! Now, THAT is my kind of Universe... a Universe with no commercials whatsoever!

I think that sums it up pretty well

"I LIKE THE UNIVERSE BECAUSE"
A. My theory of the Universe is just as good as anyone else's (and so's yours)........
Isn't Harold great folks??!!! At his advanced age, he still has a mind like a steel trap and a body like a 68 year old. And just think, that "Other" forums loss is your gain.
