Have you been paying attention...

...to what's going on in the world of science? I know it's difficult to pay much attention to anything these days with the F'ing soap opera we call American politics droning on and on. Still, I can't stop reading about the Hadron Collider!!! Very cool. These are very important times, you know. Intense and exciting and I can barely wait for the next few weeks to play out.

Oh, and if it were up to me, every single blog post would include a few words of wisdom from one of the sexiest brains in the world, Mr. Stephen Hawking:


For those of you worried about the black hole disaster potentially caused by the LHC, here's exactly what would happen to you if you ever "fell" into a black hole. Nice.

this dude is soo gonna blow up the world. & no, I have no clue what he's talking about nor is this an educated opinion! :)

Nah, the world's not gonna end, but think about the possibility of creating a black hole! Or, quite possibly finding out how life as we know it began. Fascinating.

I have to admit, I did breathe a sigh of relief when I read the experiment was an initial success. Thanks to my husband I'm able to appreciate Mr. Hawking's genius; he takes the time to translate to me as if I were, well, some sort of human idiot.

I'm embarressed to say I've made three attempts to read one of his books but have yet to finish, let alone, know what I read. Hey, I tried!!! I guess I should get Murray's translation from Fritz! :)
