I have been following this site for a couple months and feel I have found my web home! The links to the articles; sometimes silly, sometimes skeptical, always entertaining, are right up my alley. The humorous references are the best! (Although I laughed myself sick over the "rag on a stick" reference last week, I have no idea where it comes from or what it is a reference to, is it a cultural thing? )I love the science articles and am trying to wrap my brain around the string theory.
I look foward to having this blog to post some of my own weird ideas that often stem from links I have read on TDG. Has anyone else ever noticed the similarities of a solar system and an atom? Electrons orbiting a proton? Or how things in the universe seem to "breathe" or have a "heartbeat": the ebb and flow of the ocean, the theorized expanding and contracting of the universe, the global warming and cooling cycles of our planet, on and on . . .
Speaking of links and whole Yellowstone supervolcano thing, here is a link about more supervolcano stuff in the US:
It looks like this supervolcano is probably the cause of the massive New Madrid earthquakes in 1812 here in the states.
