I'd rather have my sister work in a whorehouse than own another Taurus!

    What I want to know is, do the gravitational waves traversing the galaxy at the speed of light create ripples in time? And if so, what exactly "is" a ripple in time?
    My thoughts are generally clear. My typing, not so much.

    You need to ask a astrophysicist or astrologer that question at this time or that time .............the answer may be relativity relative :conehead: :conehead: :tooth:

    That gold is just the tip of the iceberg. There are massive stars that had carbon cores and squeezed the carbon with enough pressure to create diamonds the size of our gas giant planets. Now THAT would be something to find!
    If the U.S. Congress was put in charge of the Sahara Desert, there would be a shortage of sand in under six months.

    There's some theory that Jupiter and/or Saturn may be that way.

    Depending on if there's carbon at the core of either it could be a distinct possibility. The pressure at the core of either would be more than enough to squeeze carbon into diamonds. And with the electrical activity of both it wouldn't be unheard of for hydrocarbon gases to be separated into carbon and hydrogen to free up the carbon. Need to siphon off all that excess gas and see what's under that mess! :roll2:
