    As Paul Simon once sang!

    Why is Whirly bringing this up now you ask?

    Well.......

    I truly believe last year was the freakiest year in Science ever.

    We have a new Universe,

    http://www.space.com/scienceastronomy/070823_huge_hole.html (although this story is dated this year, the work was done last year).

    maybe?

    We have the start of a unified field theory

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth/ma...YourView&xml=/earth/2007/11/14/scisurf114.xml

    maybe?

    and we have weirdest of all, artificial(how does that work?) life

    http://www.guardian.co.uk/science/2008/jan/25/genetics.science

    maybe?

    The more we know........

    What will happen next?

    I'm waiting to see which one of these kids is the first one to ask you who Paul Simon is, Whirly. Haha! :D

    If this is a step toward the discovery of artificial life...

    ...then I'm not sure I want to see the end result.

    Your eye for scrotal detail is far greater than mine, my friend.

    Why?

    Jesus, it's like everybody thinks that the scientists that work on this stuff are the stereotypical mad scientists of science fiction.

    It's not like they're doing this just because they can without any regard for the consequences.

    There are actual, useful applications for this sort of advancement.

    Why? Because its apparent from his picture that the guy is going to destroy the world. That's why.

    Either a jetpack or hoverboard would be fine with me.

    Hoverboard would be cool too, but it's second on my list, with the jetpack being first. :o

    Jetpacks are great, if you don't mind the flames from the rocket burning your ass and legs off. :down

    Hoverboards for me. :up:

    I am pretty sure that 1998 was the freakiest year for science:
