"Only two things are infinite--the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former." Albert Einstein

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." Theodore Roosevelt

"I'm not as think as you confused I am." Someone, somewhere, at some time

A reality show and surreality

Wow, what is with you people?  How can so many of you not know who Desi Lydic is?  Didn't any of you watch William Shatner's smash hit TV mini-event Invasion Iowa??  I am shocked.  Dismayed, even.  You culturally deprived individuals, you.  lol
On an unrelated note.  They say we all have a twin somewhere in the world.  I'm not exactly sure who "they" are, but if they say it then there must be some validity to it, right?  Have you ever seen any evidence of this?  Like, seeing twins who weren't twins.  I don't mean paternal twins, who shared a womb but don't look alike.  I've met plenty of those.  I mean two people who aren't related but look exactly alike.  Yesterday, I experienced such a sight.  Well, sort of.  There I was, doing my grocery shopping, minding my own business, when Llama Girl walked right past me.  Now this was extremely odd, because as some of you may know, Llama Girl lives in Florida and I in California.  So seeing her walking through a local grocery store was quite unexpected.  Of course, she was dressed out of her norm, and had shorter hair, that was blonde, and had somehow gone back in time to when she was, like, 15.  But I swear it was her!!  It was quite surreal.

I don't know about having the same face with someone...but so far I haven't been told I look like someone. :)

(stops laughing for a minute) Yeah Phil, you could meet yourself....Imagine that! I'm back HAHAHAHA and the neighborhood is just fine....

Well, from my understanding of relativity, you wouldn't meet yourself. As you approach the speed of light, time and matter become "stretched". So, from your perspective, you'd be travelling into the future, not the past, hence you wouldn't be able to meet yourself since there'd still only be one of you at any point in the time-line. Now, theoretically, that all goes to pot once you've achieved FASTER than light speed. Einstein's formulas demonstrate that travelling at EXACTLY the speed of light is theoretically impossible, since you get a divide by zero. But travelling faster produces the square root of a negative, which is mathematically okay, considering imaginary numbers.

I see you have an Einstein quote over in your right column. Since you are a fan (I'm assuming here), maybe <i>they</i> are the chosen ones who understand all that relativity stuff and know that if you just happened to be travelling at close to the speed of light you could meet yourself! Just a suggestion ;)
