Apologies to those who tried visiting the site today, but couldn't access it. After some necessary maintenance normal service has been resumed. If anyone got bored waiting, feel free to flame me (best method for riling me: tell me a game was cool when I think it's rubbish, and vice-versa).

Space is big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind- bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way down the road to the drug store, but that's just peanuts to space!

Doesn't that depend on what kind of space you're referring to? You know, outer space, inner space, closet space and so on...

Mmm, space.

Latest astronomical measurements put the oldest stars waaaay older than the Universe they are living in - and the Universe is already too old for its current expansion rate to make sense...

Maybe Mike should have been an astronomer...

There's no such thing as infinite closet space, ask any woman! Oh, they'll say there's a legend that speaks of a closet with endless depth and width, and hangers that never run out, but it's just a myth, like Atlantis, Elvis and diet-shake!

I dunno, there is Cat from Red Dwarf, his closet is so big it crossed a timezone.

True, but seeing as he descended from a cat that lived in Lister's vent I'll grant him the same credibility that I would any vent-dweller-descendants, which isn't a whole lot, so I think he might be stretching the truth just a little. That said, seeing as Cat never left the ship, that means the closet would have to be on the miningship, so it could not have been any bigger than Red Dwarf, and I don't really think that Red Dwarf is so big it crosses any timezones.

But I'll agree that you'd need a pretty big closet to room all his clothes...

That theory can never be tested fully, because of the lack of an infinite credit limit. Ask any husband!

Good point and something I am all too aware of...

Thats the only bit that doesn't make any sense (grin).

>>

Or are we getting smaller ... seeing as how, with out a reference point, it can't really be interpreted ... and seeing as how a reference point can't exist with out it being relative to something ... the whole thing gets kinda circular ... but then, the interpretation always seems to be linear.

So i figure the only real certainty is that it ain't what it seems. The contradiction kinda supports the idea too.
