Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2001 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.
During Astronomy 10 lecture today, Professor Filippenko explained physicists' search for a Theory of Everything and a Grand Unified Theory. "We want fewer equations! We want everything to fit on a T-shirt!"
But I completely cracked up when he continued on, "One Force to Rule them all, One Force to find them, One Force to bring them all and in the darkness bind them."
