Six things I could never do without
- Gravity
- Love
- iTunes
- Fire
- Something to write with
I spend a lot of time thinking about
-- Infinity.
-- What DID happen to Schrödinger's cat?
-- Whether I want to travel to some place new, or revisit some place I've already been.
-- Physical paradoxes. Like Gabriel's Horn.
-- Dangling participles and preposition clusters.
The two of us
