She is one in a billion (or at least 100 million)

If I had another life this is what I would wish to be:  not a President, not a sports star, not a celebrity, not the richest man, but to be a genius in physics.  Physics is the closest to truth.   The rest, as Shakespeare said, is just a playing a part on a stage.

So what's the big deal?  Wasn't this obvious?   :-D

"Conveyed by these gravitational waves, power 50 times greater than the output of all the stars in the universe combined vibrated a pair of L-shaped antennas in Washington State and Louisiana known as LIGO on Sept. 14."

Wow.  One tiny step closer to an explanation of what the heck is going on.  8-)

I struggle to get past the Ariana Huffington BS to occasionally find a good article.  Forget about figuring out what is is, or, there is classified and there is classified.  This is real food for thought:

Separately:   "One of me favorite "tricks " is to have someone add any two numbers together one after another ( 1 + 2 =3...2+3=5...5+3=8, etc, then divide last number by next to last number...no matter what numbers you start with, the answer is 1.618..."

We can't look at the stars and their locations in the sky.  We're seeing where they were thousands of years ago.
