    nFA,
    Thanks for commenting. Now I have plenty of research to keep me busy for at least a week after work. I like the fact you seem to not talk "over my head"...at least my head.

    Thans for the thanks and no problem about not talking over heads. I try to avoid doing that. It doesn't help communication. At the same time I try not to oversimplify. That is hard work and I'm disappointed that some popular science spokes folk don't make more of an effort.

    Imagine one such saying "the Big Bang started our universe from a point singularity smaller than an atom". Then imagine my response. Was it like biting into a lemon? Like swallowing a flying beetle while bike riding? From my side it would be hard to tell the difference.

    Some times I think I ought to write a popular book: The Universe (According to nFA). Maybe the effort would exorcize my annoyances, though I doubt the market potential.

    Einstein said if you can not explain it in simple terms, you don't understand it well enough. (Paraphrase)
    You are doing fine.
