GSoldstoryI really hate to get into the habit of talking about “when I was younger, things were different — and now they’re not!”  But the fact is, when I was young, all the scientists said that the universe was winding down, going slower.  Entropy always increases — it’s the law!  But that was before they discovered that it wasn’t.  In fact, the universe is getting wound tighter and tighter — going ever farther and faster.  So much for science when I was young.

However, I also remember what happens when you wind something up too much.  It shatters the working bits.  Springs and cogs fly out everywhere and nothing works at all anymore.  Not, of course, that it will happen in this case.

You know, well…probably not…
