    Everybody knows that the planet Vulcan is in a completely different star system, anyway...

    ...about 16 light-years away from ours (

    ...which would place it in orbit around "Groombridge 1618" (

    ...which is the only yellow/orange dwarf (like ours) in that distance range.

    So there.

    Vidiot, I think you're out of your Vulcan mind!

    Oubliette - "Vidiot, I think you're out of your Vulcan mind!"

    Just enough to make me interesting...

    Hi Viviane. If you like good reads on physics I highly recommend The Road to Reality by Roger Penrose. It's not an easy read, but it's a great one! I enjoyed your book review, and would say it's spot on!

    It's the story of how we never stop knowing. In other words how science attempts to represent reality but never reaches it? Science is one way among others for representing what's out there.

    No, Slim, it's not that at all.

    I know the link is not to a book but one should be written about Martin Hartwell. I realize that Wikipedia pages get edited a lot but as of 11/17/2015 11:26 EST I believe every word in the link is the truth. As someone who has flown in the high Arctic when it says David Kootook survived by eating bark I can guarantee you it wasn't tree bark! LOL I would love to take Creationist on a trip to the Arctic where they could observe evolution in action. LOL Survival of the fittest for sure!
