    Why do we call them apartments when they are together in the same building?

    If life is a highway, does that make the soul a car?

    Took me a moment to remember where I had heard that one. It's at 1:53. I would bet I'm not only one who hears that and immediately thinks "Better Off Dead!" then thinks nah, that's not right.

    Yes, it counts as a cold soup.

    A hot dog is, in fact, just an oblong sandwich.

    Jeezus, John Cusack was only a baby then and I can never see Daphne Zuniga without also seeing Princess Vespa with her Joan Rivers robot escort.

    Here's one about aliens and space travel.

    Einstein proved that time can be distorted by an object traveling very fast. If two stop watches are synced before a space craft launches, one of the stop watches remains on earth and one in the space craft. After the space craft has traveled at the speed of light and returned to earth, the stop watch that was on the space craft might only show a few days have past while the stop watch that remained on earth would show that years had past. This a proven law of physics.

    With that being said, if aliens (extra-terrestrials, not those crossing our southern boarder) travelled across the universe to observe what us earthlings have been up to, how would they have a recognizable world to return to? Have aliens discovered a way to manipulate space time?

    Actually, it's a very minor time difference, not days and years. But, there is definitely a difference. It increases with distance from the earth. Einstein's theory suggests "Gravity" doesn't really exist except in the sense that the mass (of Earth, for example) distorts space-time.. Note that an airplane flying "straight" above the Earth within "the pull of gravity" actually travels in a circle. Neat stuff.

    Not to mention that space-time is just the 4th dimension. Theories say there may be ten.

    I'd theorize that if aliens are visiting us, they have certainly figured out how to travel in space-time. The distances are just too great otherwise.

    But think about the odds: There are 100 billion stars in the Milky Way galaxy we live in. There are 200 billion galaxies based on NASA's 2021 estimates. So that's 200,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 stars. Each one potentially a solar system with an average of three planets. So now were at 600,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 opportunities for life. That's assuming there's only one universe. Suggesting that there's none anywhere else in the Universe is non-sensical.

    Now, let's add in some time. Universe is 13 billion years old. Earth is about 4 billion years. If one of those gazillion planets was just 1000 years ahead of us, they might have perfected bending space-time or some other dimension in ways we can't even envision.

    Wait - what were we talking about.
