    “When you can measure what you are speaking about, and express it in numbers, you know something about it, when you cannot express it in numbers, your knowledge is of a meager and unsatisfactory kind; it may be the beginning of knowledge, but you have scarely, in your thoughts advanced to the stage of science.”
    – Lord Kelvin

  2. ^ Bingo.
    When this concern came up a couple of decades ago, I read an article with, you know, numbers and stuff in it; but all’s I remember, now, is not to worry about it.

    Dunno why the Fermi Paradox angle just occurred to me.
    Haven’t had a snort since 9pm last night, and pipe tobacco doesn’t work that way.

  3. Unless Fermi left his paradox in Schrodinger’s box.

  8. Sooner or later some doomsday cult is going to be correct.
    Personally, I hope it’s the one with death by snu snu.

  10. Science Guy concerned that particle accelerator will turn Earth into black hole!

    Too late, politicians already did that.
    What we need is a Brown Hole, created by God, that is an anus of such high density that it sucks up all the bullshit coming from the mouths of progressive politicians (I’m looking at you, Kamala) so we don’t have to deal with it.
    From your lips to God’s ass.
