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

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.)Flonker wrote:Not to mention physics. A nuclear explosion capable of moving Luna out of Earth's orbit into a high speed solar escape trajectory would have shattered it into a zillion pieces. Not to mention the effect on Luna moving out of orbit would have on tidal stresses on Earth. The shockwave would be devastating.

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!dragoner wrote: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.
