...Barack Obama was teleported (or was that teleprompted?) to Mars?... The physicist is vaguely entertaining, struggling to keep on the Coast message...[he] is not completely off, but it's what he doesn't say that makes no sense! He approaches saying something interesting, but then, he doesn't express it.
Listening to George talk about the big bang and the beginning of the universe has me reaching in the cabinet for a scotch. Andrew Basiago
defending his "Obama and me went to Mars"
story, the ever snappy, witty, and much maligned on the last "radio trainwreck" episode, Leo Laporte
, on the next generation of tv's, L.A. Marzulli
on the Shroud of Turin, and then scientist Scott Tyson
struggling to get George off the "universe had a beginning"
mind frame. I found Tyson's trashing of the "big bang" interesting. I read somewhere (well, Brian Greene's The Elegant Universe
to be exact) that the combined space/time/something or other/energy of every thing
in the universe equals the speed of light. So what my Honda CRV lacks in approaching light speed is made up for in experiencing time and space, and a photon traveling at light speed experiences no time, and, according to Tyson, with his concept of "collapsing space/time," it experiences no space. What? No, I don't get it, and so therefore I dig it, and what to know more. Tyson's confession that he may have asperger's syndrome
, and that may be why he sees things differently, was a moment of pathos. George said that they will be clearing out the stuff at the "c2c store" to make room for more stuff. Good riddance, it was all a bunch of crap anyway.
...yep, there he is...
