On New years eve, I spent some time with the wife's friends and such...and one of them was a person with a lot of degree's... And me, being the cocky fellow that I am...I asked him if he could explain to me how a bumble bee can fly...just to see if he knew his stuff... Well, my long night of drunken stuper came to a hastily end with me getting so sick I couldn't stand up... a damn flu... but what we talked about all night brought some light into the realism's of hard-core physics. Steve would have shit his pants on what we was talking about...maybe later I might throw an "All Brains Meet with Beer" one of these nights... and get some hardcore thoughts going again... Well, the night ended, and it intrigued the wife so much that she now is on this science kick and she wants to learn more. She's already bought books on the big bang, black holes, and time travel... and one of the things that she's been talking about is the possibilities that this one CERN machine might do... CERN - European Organization for Nuclear Research in a few months it looks like it will fire up...and we all are wondering what will happen... So what are your thoughts? a. how can a bumble bee fly? b. Can we make a black hole in a lab? c. Is time travel possible? d. and add any other thoughts in a related matter.
