Radio telescopes monitoring the star HD 189733, about sixty light-years from earth, have detected broadcasts of Fibber McGee and Molly emanating from what appears to be an Earth-sized planet orbiting the star.
Only a small part of the spectrum of light is visible. The rest is made up of colors too ugly to look at now that the 1970s are over, like “Harvest Gold.”
The so-called “poison-dart frogs” (Dendrobates spp.) cannot actually shoot poison darts. As a natural defense, they usually sue predators into bankruptcy.
Hypothetically, if two twins were sitting at a table, and the second twin were suddenly whisked off on a round trip to a nearby star at nearly the speed of light, by the time he got back, his soup would be cold, and the first twin would have eaten all the rolls.
Einstein’s theory of special relativity posits that the speed of light is constant for all observers, except in Coosawhatchie, South Carolina, where everythin’ slows down considerable.
