If you've read my site before, then you saw my little quips
about me wishing to be free from the constraints of time and space. A dream, I know, and not one I spend much time pursuing,
but it is still fun to consider.
Sam in the office
sent this link from today's Onion. "I Don't Define Myself By My Ability to Travel Between Dimensions". Very Onion-y, of course. Their atlas (Our Dumb World) is quite hilarious (albeit with onion flavored irreverence)
and one of their books almost had my son detained at Heathrow (because 15 year olds carrying a compilation of Onion articles could be considered terrorist threats --to be fair, there had just been those car bombings and there was an image of fire
on the cover of the book!--either that or the guy with white gloves just wanted to read it, too!)
A couple of years back, I added a link to the bioengineering course site
called Imagining the 10 dimensions
It's quite clear--good animations.
Of course, Michio Kaku explains these things quite well in his book Hyperspace. That was a GREAT book! I remember that after reading it I felt for a day or two that I really understood this.
Then that feeling went away. :-( If I can't explain it, then I don't understand it.
Here is a clever video about the types of time travel depicted in books and movies by Lore Sjöberg on his AltText segment for Wired magazine. He "grades" the cleverness/feasibility/practicality of the various theories concering
time travel. Again, it almost made sense! (ok, and don't forget to watch SUV on Mars, too!)
Oh, and watch this SNL skit called Abe Lincoln and his Time Machine Best line: "Excuse me, Sonny, are you John
Until next time,
I just posted a video review of Joy Hakim's series called The Story of Science. I know, it's a bit long at a little over seven minutes. Eventually, I'll find my stride. If you
want to cut to the chase about the book and not hear my musing about the inner children of scientists, skip ahead to about
I also made a separate page on this site
and you can find the button at the left to go find all of my video book reviews in one handy location! Enjoy!
Until next time,
