More TV Viewing



While watching an episode of the 'Through The Wormhole,' series, I was surprised when Morgan Freeman asked, "If, according to String Theory there are nine other dimensions, why can't we see them?"

The best answer I can come up with is:

The nine dimensions of string theory cannot be detected by humans because they lack a sensory organ that can detect these dimensions.

The process of seeing objects requires eyes connected to a brain. The process of hearing sounds requires ears connected to a brain. The process of smelling a scent requires a nose connected to a brain. The process of tasting a flavor requires an array of taste buds connected to a brain. The process of feeling objects requires touch pads attached to nerves connected to a brain.


The nine dimensions of string theory cannot be detected by humans because they lack a sensory organ that detects these dimensions.

Or it might be that String Theory is a false theory. And there are no extra dimensions.

I watched another movie; it's title is The Book Of Eli. I must admit that I found the story to be utterly ridiculous. I continued watching it to the end for one reason, and that is not because Denzel Washington did his usual magnificent job of acting. He did.

No; the reason I watched the entire movie instead of turning it off halfway through was because of the compelling presence on screen of Mila Kunis.

God, she's a beautiful young woman

Here is another picture of Mila

On this day in 1983, 20-year-old Vanessa Williams becomes the first African American to win the Miss America crown. Less than a year later, on July 23, 1984, Williams gave up her crown after nude photos of her surfaced. Despite the scandal, Williams later launched a successful singing and acting career, including a featured role on the hit television sitcom Ugly Betty.

After winning the Miss New York title, Williams went to Atlantic City, New Jersey, to participate in the Miss America pageant. On September 17, 1983, Williams made history by becoming the first African-American woman in the pageant’s 63-year history to capture the Miss America title. (For the competition’s first 30 years, blacks weren’t even allowed to become contestants.)

In 1996 Williams appeared in Eraser, with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Soul Food in 1997 and in the 2000 remake of Shaft, featuring Samuel L. Jackson and 2004’s Johnson Family Vacation. Williams also racked up credits on the small-screen, including roles on the short-lived series Boomtown and South Beach. Since 2006, she has co-starred on the hit ABC sitcom Ugly Betty.
