I don't feel that insignificant. After all, I'm 1,000,000,000,000,000,000 times the size of an up quark.

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.

They haven't seen anything yet :bigrofl: :bigrofl: :p

"It's big........I'm little!"


You may not be as small as you think! Since they didn't blow up the world yet with the LHC, I've been increasingly interested in the opposite spectum of the Universe and how small it can get. I'll bet that too is infinite, stuff just keeps getting smaller and closer together forever. It seems though news lately from that area of science has been quite sparse.

You may be right Hydro, but the news blackout is deliberate whilst corporate sponsorship deals are worked out. I soon see you pushing a John Deere Quantum walk-behind with Buckminsterfullerene nanotube blades that cuts one-quintillionth of your yard with each pass.

If space goes on & on forever, then I'd say the smaller spectrum is infinitesimal. Ya can't think too much on this kind of stuff! It'll drive one insane! :wacko: Anyone have the definition of "nothing"? Can't be done in my opinion!

The closest I've ever come to "nothing" is hitchhiking home in the rain from Binghampton, NY... :D (Never, ever ask!)

Oh, I'd bet there was a whole lot of "something" involved in that! Cursing for one!

Yeah, we spent two days going from Saskatoon to Regina once. That's a 2 1/2 hour drive at the speed limit. After a while you start trying to catch your reflection in passing cars because you're afraid you've become invisible.
