Warning -- Naked self-promotion here.
That came from a comment I put up yesterday at a somwhat arcane link over at 3QuarksDaily.
Readers who want to plow through the reference are welcome to check it out, but I won't be offended if you simply roll your eyes and skip it.
I just like the way that part came out and wanted to hang on to it for future reference. And besides, only a handful of readers see my Tweets. (It's like trying to discuss a dry topic in a crowd while watching a sports event.)
