    The problem with an infinite cosmos is that every possibility, no matter how remote, becomes inevitable. This means the monkeys with typewriters thing isn’t just some academic thought experiment. It’s the truth. There really ARE an infinite number of monkeys with typewriters, and they really HAVE typed out infinite copies of the complete works of William Shakespeare (and everything else). Somewhere, in the infinite expanse, there is, at this very moment, a dumb ape typing these words: “If you give an infinite number of dumb humans internet access, one of them will inevitably type this sentence.”

    Just remember: no matter what you choose to say, there are an infinite number of monkeys that have already typed it.

    Not true, at least according to the big bang theory…

    How about an orange mélange, mon ami?

    Warm and cold blooded are very imprecise terms. Methods of thermal regulation vary widely. Neither the opah nor the tuna are warm-blooded in the sense that most people would probably associate with the term. Apparently, though, the opah is unique in that it is the only fish known to keep its entire body significantly above environmental temperature rather than just parts of its body as in the case of the blue fin.

    I’m not much of a card player; I prefer dicing with death.

    The ancient Greeks (who gave us the term planet) would have adamantly insisted that the planets were stars, and they would be correct, because the word “aster”, to them simply meant a small point of light in the night sky.

    Likewise, if a nutritionist tells you to eat more minerals, he’s almost certainly not strictly adhering to the IMA’s definition of a mineral.

    Anyone who dislikes the IAU’s definition of planet (as many do) is free to categorize Pluto, Eris, Ceres, etc. however they see fit.

    Precisely. Few people seem to notice that the debate was never about Pluto—neither side disagreed about any of its physical properties—but about what constitutes a planet.

    Ditto.

    Heck, cinder blocks are probably worth more than the wheels on my car.
