#Beltway scene (at I-495)
It really is a shame that this lady is no longer writing this blog. She is hysterical, and says all the things I can’t, for I do not have her gift.
So I cancelled my subscription to Zoosk and have until May 5th to ride out the 3 months I paid for, and in the last couple of days I actually got a decent hello from a handsome guy with a profile that I actually, so far, like! No one is more surprised than I am. We have only exchanged a couple of messages (not even emails or names yet), but this is farther than I have ever been with any of the online dating services… I’m really not sure what to do next! LOL!
Lawrence Krauss on a scientific breakthrough that enables us to see the afterglow of the Big Bang: http://nyr.kr/No82A2
"For some people, the possibility that the laws of physics might illuminate even the creation of our own universe, without the need for supernatural intervention or any demonstration of purpose, is truly terrifying. But Monday’s announcement heralds the possible beginning of a new era, where even such cosmic existential questions are becoming accessible to experiment."
