Kim sent me a bunch of Toothpastefordinner.com cartoons. This one
is possibly the funniest but it's hard to pick.
F1 is going racing in China tonight. And without the Communist Revolution there would be no new china...All sorts of weird things are shakin' down in the F1 world but I've barely been keeping up with them. I'm just happy to be watching a race without having to be up at 6:30am on a Sunday.
Roger Penrose is probably one of the smartest people living today but it is not shocking to me that twistor theory
hasn't caught on as much as string theory in the search for GUT. I assume it is easier to understand him the more educated you are, but he does not seem to be able to explain himself in a simple way. His ideas about twistors appear to have had something of a resurgence recently but I am in the middle of reading his book and I gotta say...I can't wait to get to Hawking's rebuttal at the end (there are pieces by other theorists as well) just to enjoy his use of a shoestring economy of words to explain his ideas. I really just want to get to the next book. I'm backing the Popular Science subscription up for this, and they are starting to pile up.
