If you’re a photography enthusiast or you just like amusing, artistic or just plain bizarre photos, you really should check this blog out. (P.S. It’s not mine, I’m simply a fan.)

Let me know what you think.

A warning: The photos are not always work safe.

Scientists Discover Hints of Time Before Big Bang

June 6, 2008
“Every time you break an egg or spill a glass of water you’re learning about the Big Bang.”
A team of physicists claim that our view of the early universe contains a signature of time before the Big Bang. This idea comes from studying cosmic microwave background light emitted when the universe was 40,000 years old.
This may explain why we perceive time moving in a straight line, from the past to the future.
The Cobe satellite observed fluctuations in the normally smooth radiation in 1992 that were believed to be seeds of young galaxy clusters that grew into our universe.
Scientists at Caltech now believe these fluctuations contain hints that our universe “bubbled off” a previous one.

According to their model, new universes could be spontaneously created from apparently empty space.

This sort of thing is fascinating.

Think about. I mean, really think about it.

Discoveries like this change our entire outlook on, well, everything. The nature of our universe, of reality itself. There’s something about the way humanity looks to learn and study and discover that is fundamental to our nature and being.

It’s reassuring.

Or as Warren Ellis commented:

“We learn stuff like this every single day. Every single goddamned day a new idea just falls out of the sky.

Who’d want to live anywhere else?”

I Was Right, Damnit!

Catwoman is Batman and Robin all over again, enthusiastically crapping over all the well-documented success of ‘serious’ comic book movies, and heading full steam into camp again, where nothing ever gets accomplished. It’s Showgirls for the PS2 crowd.”
