Can I please be smarter?

The theory of everything. String Theory. Super String Theory. 10 dimensions. 11 dimensions. I need a better grasp on physics. *sigh* Maybe in my next life, eh?

The Elegant Universe
Imagining the 10th Dimension (part 1)
Imagining the 10th Dimension (part 2)
String Theory to M Theory

Hehehehe. I guess I'll remain blissfully ignorant in the ways of physics.

I considered following those links, but then I suspect my brain would hurt very badly afterwards, so I didn't.

Instead, I thought about zombies.

How many brains could a zombie gnaw if a zombie could gnaw brains?

Instead, I thought about zombies.

And a wise decision it was.

In answer to your question, I think it would depend on just how hungry the zombie was. Oh wait, zombies are always hungry. Okay then, the answer is as many as they can get their zombified hands on.

Also, I really need to make a zombie icon for just these occasions.

There is no problem sufficiently advanced that an application of the proper amount of zombies cannot rectify.

They are, in essence, the perfect answer to anything.

I think you're onto something with that theory.

Awesome icon, BTW :D

Forget about string theory; politics is where it's at! Take the quiz I mentioned on my LJ!

/plug because I want comments so badly and so pathetically

Oh yeah I saw that and intended to go back and take the quiz. Although, I'm so used up politically these days. Years of obsessive political readings and ramblings have worn me out.

And there's nothing wrong with pimping for comments ;)

It doesn't gauge where you are politically, really, like some quizzes. It just tests your general knowledge of today's current events.

String theory's way beyond the level I achieved when I was studying physics in college, so you're not alone on that count.

I've been thinking lately that I really should get a subscription to Scientific American or something to stay up to date.

I imagine your background makes it a bit easier to absorb though, doesn't it? The thing that frustrates me is when I watch something like The Elegant Universe, I feel like I get it, but it leaves me quickly because I really don't grasp enough of the science behind it.

Yeah, you should try to stay up to date with that. Don't let it slip away from you.
