Nonsense! I thought the 'Black Sun' episode made *perfect* sense. :lol:

I find myself wanting to like posts as well.

One thing I have tried to regain, getting old-er, is my sense of wonder, or just to enjoy things as they are and not be hypercritical. :geek:

Yeah, even as a kid, I understood enough science for that to be obvious. I remember thinking, "you're not gonna get ANY replies from Earth. Aside from the fact you're still in one piece and cannot be, they're dealing with tidal waves and earthquakes, and every major city is probably just rubble, under water, or both!" I certainly didn't have the depth of physics to work it out with pencil and paper, but still. (I could have done it on computer by 9th or 10th grade, though.)

My hypercriticality probably started when I was four, and decided to be an astronaut -- a career goal that lasted until I was fourteen. It has matured like a fine wine! Of course, so has my sense of wonder to a certain extent!
