  2. I love those cartoons and sketches
    with pianos being lowered by rope.
    I also think those ones where
    someone falls into a blackhole
    in the pavement, and the next guy
    just picks it up like if it were a rubber mat, whistles and walks off

    If only I could have one of those for next xmas - lol!

  3. Hi Coturnix,

    ah! that is nice :-)

    Hi Quasar,

    you know, your comment just reminded me of a humorous scifi book I read an eternity ago. The whole story evolved around some black liquid that, when dropped to the floor caused a wormhole and who stepped into it came out somewhere else. I doubt you'd know it, it was part of a series... will try to find out whether it's still in print. I wish I could recall the name. Best,

    B.

  6. Bee,

    Isidoro collected all the existing knowledge at his time. Try the mathematical and astronomy part. Of course is written in Latin but there is an english version. The Etimologías (The Origins) are XX books. Science (math and astronomy and the difference with astrology) is in book III.

    I think it is fully translated into English here
