not with a bang but a whimper

I spent today in bed and am feeling much better. I saw this really cool guy talking on CNN Book-something.

Simon Singh (http://www.simonsingh.com/) was promoting his new book Big Bang about the creation of the universe and he did the coolest powerpoint presention. Amungst the illustrations were such diverse elements as playing Led Zepplin's Stairway to Heaven backwards so we could hear the message from Satan (that was pretty cool) and a mathematical formula proving the Teletubbies were evil. If I had a bigger brain in my head I would be an astronomer or a chemist right now so I absolutely adore books that bring the physical sciences to the masses. I can't wait until I get my hands on this one.

Hope everyone is well in Atlanta - saw the effects of the weather on multiple channels today.


I can't type it the way he did, I don't know how to do superscript for the squared or the square root sign so please use your imaginations or write it out in scientific notation...

Teletubbies = time x money (as in the BBC invested a lot of time & money in their development)

as we all know, time = money so you can substitute the equation.

teletubbies = money x money, or

teletubbies = money squared

as we all know, money is the root of evil, in other words the square root of evil

therefore take the square root of money and you get evil

therefore

teletubbies = evil

You could substitute him out, I'm sure. Teletubbies rather the British version of Barney, really :)

Thanks for the mental soup! I'm in need!! But I'm feeling better today than yesterday so that's a good sign.

Miss you too & love back at you! (Germ free love, that is!)
