Life with the Gojirawitzes

I'm not sure what other families do to distract each other in times of stress, but I'm pretty sure it's unusual to get into hours-long discussions about quantum and particle physics, the Large Hadron Collider, the Big Bang, the creation and end of the universe (from a scientific viewpoint, not a religious one), infinity and entropy...

At least,I'm pretty sure it's unusual for thirteen-year-olds to start and lead such conversations.

In other families.


In other news, Elayna has now read Clarke's "The Nine Billion Names of God" and Asimov's "The Last Question".

(Elayna: "Okay, so I get the idea of quantum physics, I get the concept. But I still don't fully understand it."
Adam and I, in unison: "Neither do quantum physicists!")
