2222 Day


The title of this post is in homage to Mrs.4444 (Mrs. Fours). So that makes the title 'Twos Day'. Because you know how much I like to play with Tuesday.

Yesterday, my first post of what I hope will be many published on You Won't Go Blind. It actually got a few comments and probably started more than one argument. It's called "Lou - On Relationships". You should read it. In fact, you should go to the site and cruise around a bit - it's a cool site.

I spent most of last night watching science programs on cable TV - there was a series of programs on Black Holes - the type of thing I really find fascinating. And, of course, there was a whole range of theoretical physics expounded to explain certain factors that physicists seem to think affect our universe.

You know what? I think they need to go back to the drawing board. Dark Matter? Maybe. Dark Energy? Phooey. I think the extended redshifts astronomers see are an artifact of interstellar, intergalactic carbon dust and have nothing to do with some mysterious Dark Energy. It's like soot - and it's been found on the moon. It should be everywhere in space - and if it is, it is a viable explanation for the unexpected red shift that scientists see and attribute to DE. Wrongly. When it comes to a choice between the simple and tangible, versus complex and mysterious, simple and tangible will win out every time.

Send the Nobel Prize over when you're ready.

I recently enjoyed a NOVA show about the IBM computer that is challenging the two big Jeopardy champions this week... there was another about time/space that I found fascinating as well.

You're a physicist, too?!? Lou, is there anything you CAN'T do?

my 7 y/o is obsessed with black holes (not talking about his nostrils). driving to school today, in fact, he mentioned that he doesn't ever want to be an astronaut because he doesn't want to get sucked into a black hole.
