    Was talking to Sweetie #2 about that movie just a few minutes ago. She saw it but I haven't. I thought it was supposed to be more of a love story then a math story. For my party I want a math story.

    Okay, might give it a go. Sweetie #2 said it was sad.

    I bought his first book several times. Kept lending it out and never getting it back. I listen to the others on audio books. Those things will put you to sleep big time. Interesting and sleep inducing at the same time. :)

    And yet the laws of physics have not explained the creation of the universe.

    Steve was getting ahead of himself. ;)

    One thing Stephen and I have in common that you don't is the lack of a need for imaginary friends.
