Something puts me off Tyson.
He seems to be chasing attention, rather than really attacking the subject matter. Clever guy, maybe he's worked out what puts the fees up.

But I wouldn't pay to see him.

I'd pay to see Chris Rock. And Chuck Berry. And Ray Charles and Bob Marley. And lots of blacks. Dead or alive.
Obviously, I wouldn't pay as much to see the dead ones.

Mind you, there aren't many whites I'd pay much to see. Live events are over rated. Over priced, anyway.

Is there such a thing as Hyperspace?


Every time someone doubts the existence of hyperspace, a kitten dies... :(

(well actually, it is instantly transported via a hyperspacial shunt into the black hole at the centre of the galaxy, where its atoms are torn apart. So yeah, it dies...)
