I'm actually all for this thing, the secrets of the universe is in the infinitely small, not the infinitely big. The scientists like to talk about the Higgs Boson , or something similar, which is needed to explain why we in material form, rather than existing as pure energy. Figuring that out may lead to anti-gravity and other things Star Trek promised us.

[stevieb]: man, I absolutely LOVE driving in the worst winter conditions. In the mountainous roads, there are extremely few (if any) other drivers. I love the challenge. I've been doing extreme off-road my whole life, and as I said, I'm always well...
[stevieb]: ...prepared for even the very worst
