I came across this Hawking quote:     :)

Scientific Discovery

“I wouldn’t compare it to sex, but it lasts longer.”

O'Tink, the airwaves are full of Hawking quotes about now, but this one you found, takes the cake!  ;) (Special Big Bang/Black Hole/God Rolling Dice cake, of course...<3)

Glad you enjoyed the cake, Virginia.  ;) <3

Oh, and a rejoinder to Hawking:  Yeah, a science discovery might last longer than sex, but on the other hand, you can't make a science discovery every day.  :blush: :ermm: :angel: :) :D

O', O'Tink, wait till Rooster sees that, he will be scandalized (again)...!  :angry:  <3

TheOtherTink Virginia

*sigh*  Rooster is so easily scandalized.  Now I have to go hide again.  :ermm: :) :D

...a little joyful sprite inside all of us, hopefully Tink...a wonderful gift to the world from Sir James Barrie...:kissing:  <3

Leave it to Tink to find that quote! LOL. But as always? He made a good case. I do believe he's right and Tink is right in the frequency of scientific discoveries.

What am I going to do with you Tink? :D :D :D
