"Da stehen lauter Schildkröten aufeinander"

Upphaf bókar sem mér þykir afar vænt um:

A well-known scientist (some say it was Bertrand Russell) once gave a public lecture on astronomy. He described how the earth orbits around the sun and how the sun, in turn, orbits around the center of a vast collection of stars called our galaxy. At the end of the lecture, a little old lady at the back of the room got up and said: "What you have told us is rubbish. The world is really a flat plate supported on the back of a giant tortoise." The scientist gave a superior smile before replying. "What is the tortoise standing on?" "You're very clever, young man, very clever" said the old lady. "But it's turtles all the way down!"

Næstu dagar munu að öllum líkindum snúast með miklum hverfiþunga um jólaprófin. Í samræmi við fyrsta lögmál Newtons þá mun ég líklega sýna tregðu við breytingu frá þeirri stefnu og þar af leiðindi gæti orðið lítið um bloggfærslur.

Baráttukveðjur!
