    Looking forward to the time travel episode, which is considered theoretically possible by physicists. For a very interesting documentary on time, check out Michio Kaku’s Time series he did for the BBC. I would also point you to a series of interviews I read on scientific american…

    I did my speech on black holes… Also, major followup, there’s a theory by Nikodem Poplawski stating that our galaxy emerged from a black hole that is in fact part of a larger universe, that is ultimately, part of another universe that’s part of another universe, all coming from black holes. So… yeah.

    I can’t believe you guys didn’t make the obvious Star Wars reference re the bird hitting the impossible shot to disable the CERN Death Star.

    So, I’m listening to all of the Caustic Soda episodes from the beginning. I’ll be adding some pop-culture/heavy metal info…

    Black Hole Generator is a song by technical death metal band Ouroboros on their debut album; as far as I can gather (the vocals are incomprehensible) it’s about the universe being crated in a black hole, or as a result of a black hole.

    Swiss based Black Metal band Samael has a song called Black Hole on their album Above; the lyrics make about as much sense as some holy books, but I think it’s talking about emotional black holes.
