Gotham Gazette:

The dark side of the universe ...
If they can't measure it, or see it, or feel it, or smell it, or taste it, or tickle it, why do they think the dark side exists, rather than there being a defect in their equations and models and logic. Too upsetting to the supposed 'known' physics relationships?
Same argument re the supposed 11-dimensional universe.
Who's paying for this research by PhD's [which is to say witch-doctors]?

So, kiddies, if the pointy headed guys say that most of the universe is "dark matter" who's to say that it's one particle? Maybe, like ordinary matter, it consists of two particles. Which means chemistry and molecules and compounds - kinda like the stuff on the tip of your nose.

Maybe we're the ghosts.

Roy, you're on to something true. I'm my own doppelganger. And you? Are you, you? Or is your doppelganger all that's true?

"Now if my wife is my grandmother, then I'm her grandchild
And every time I think of it, it nearly drives me wild
'Cause now I have become the strangest 'case you ever saw
As husband of my grandmother, I am my own grandpa "

That was awful offal, VDL.I mean, having excellent family relations is one thing, but

Remember, it's not incest demonic
if it's all just platonic.
Are you some cosmic comic
forsaking slaking all that's not PC erotic?
No need to reply in this regard
unless you insist, G_ _ _ _ _ .
