More Musings of Galactic Proportions

Song Stuck on the Brain: "I love technology, But not as much as you you see, but still I love technology, always and forever, always and forever..." Kip from Napolean Dynamite.

I think that's one of the funniest movies that I didn't really laugh about until after I watched it. I mean, there were some chuckle moments during, but it wasn't until after it was over and I found myself thinking about it, that I realized it was REALLY funny. Mostly because I KNOW people like those in the movie. Great character study.

I'm still stuck in my Discovery/Science channel kick. Last night I stayed up late to watch a couple of specials on Stephen Hawking and other father's of modern physics, like Einstein, Gallileo and Newton. It was really fascinating. I think my biggest hang up is that so many scientists leave out the God factor and to me that just leaves big holes in their theories, but still what they have learned is just fascinating.

I really wish I could experience some of this stuff first hand. I made a list of phenomenon/mysteries I want to experience myself.

1. The Bermuda Triangle. Getting lost in it might not be such a bad thing. I mean can we really say for sure? No one's been found dead, so maybe it's a portal into a really cool alternate universe... or maybe they landed on Wonder Woman's island. Either way, not too shabby.

2. Visit the Hollow Earth. If Admiral Byrd and others can accidentally fall in, why can't I?

3. Black Holes. Okay, so I don't want to fall into one, but I would love to see one 'up close' so to speak. I want to understand them better and I want to know what really happens once you pass the event horizon.

4. Multiverse or Alternate Universe. Don't you want to meet yourself from another world? How cool would that be? I mean surley I got the skinny/hot body in one of my alternate realities.

5. Edinburgh's underworld. Did you know that there is a complete city built under the South bridge? They believe those that lived there may never have seen the light of day. Can you imagine? I thought working in a cave was bad. I'd love to see what that city was like.


CSFFB: Don't forget to check out the website of the month, It boasts some great speculative fiction and is supported by reader and fan donations.

I would TOTALLY love to be lost in the Bermuda Triangle.

Interesting. I'm not sure how I feel about that...I'll have to think on it. You would think the Bermuda Triangle would be pretty easy to figure out!

I'm totally hooked on this book I got from your library Saturday...The Seat Beside Me. Can't put it down.

I haven't read my copy of The Seat Beside Me yet, but I've heard great things about it. I'm gonna push it up the stack in my TBR pile.

I think the fact that the Bermuda Triangle SHOULD be easy to figure out is what makes it so fascinating. It's a relatively small area to lose so much in. All the more reason to wonder what's REALLY going on there. :)
