    What is with this forum and simple answers?

    You guys miss a lot of points. It's amazing you can find your dick when you are masturbating to your newest anime or next episode of THE WALKING DEAD (fucking closet necrophiliacs) .

    No, points aren't missed, people only care about their own. It's been that way since I joined. Contrary to any gnashing of teeth, these threads are agenda driven from all sides.

    Yup. A good GS thread is the Bullshido version of election season; politics becomes entertainment.

    The only objective metric for measuring space would be Planck length.
