Last Night's TV

TV: I saw the "Give the Boy a Hand" episode of Dexter--in which we discover that La Guerta can't be the anti-Christ, because she is able to step inside a church. Who knew?!

I enjoyed the episode--no one died, although one character probably wished he had. :P I'm glad they're not making this into the kind of show whose object is to have Dexter kill some new criminal each week. This is much better.

The Hawking Paradox show was interesting. Apparently, Hawking is less popular among physicists than he is among the general public. It was odd to find that out. I also watched a show featuring Galileo, Newton, Einstein, and Hawking. I had no idea Galileo's father was a lutenist. Now I want to hear some of his compositions.

There were two accidents involving 18-wheelers on I-45 North this morning, blocking all four lanes of southbound traffic. It took one of our employees two hours and 15 minutes to get to work today.

An article of Mark's was published in The Washington Post Saturday, called "The Final Commercial Frontier."

Time for me to get back to work, now. Bye!

Current Mood: busybusy

Many consider HAwking's work to be, well, too "dumbed-down." At least as I've heard through my philosophy of science classes once upon a time. (My professor waxed eloquent on why Hawking was "Decent enough at explaining this stuff to the masses" but not otherwise worth your time.

Hi, Kris!

I found it all pretty fascinating. physicists tend to rank people like Feynman and others in the top ten rankings of physicist who have contributed to physics.

Hawking has greatly popularized it and, I think, done more to make cosmology a topic of conversation among the layman than the others, but the others are a lot more highly regarded by their peers.

Yet Hawking is the guy who holds Newton's seat at Cambridge. Go figure.

He's 64 this year, which, for someone with ALS, is pretty amazing.

Ah, Feynman. My theology professor, on the other hand, waxed eloquent on how science IS Feynman's religion, even though he says otherwise. :)
