The universe is a very strange place. As smart as we think we are, we cannot begin to explain what we see around us in great detail. The best we can do is theorize and hope somebody smarter comes along who figures out how to prove what we surmised. That's a pretty funny way to do things. But, then again, we are a very funny species. Never is this more evident than in the perusings of Barry Hopkins and his abundant wit and sideways view of things. Dive in and see what does not make the universe tick, but tickles your funnybone just the same. I double dog dare ya! No geese were eaten in the making of this book cover. Two satellites and an asteroid were roasted in wine and served with asparagus.
