Thanks and so long to Kurt Vonnegut who died yesterday at the age of 84. Thanks Kurt, for warning us against the dangers of inopportune time travel — James Cole could have learned a thing or two. Thanks for Ice-9 — remember when scientists announced that the brain matter of cows with mad cow disease had a weird infectious crystallinesque structure? And, of course, thanks for helping us believe that our future survival as a species could very well lie in genetic miniaturization (microzation?) which will also help us to manipulate our planet’s gravity. And, although I’d not sure if I fully agree with your banana cream pie, it still made me laugh. Hi ho.
