Blinded by science
Einstein, Io, comet tails
I consider myself an intelligent person. I also find science fascinating. I'm just not sure what happen between me and Death by Black Hole: And Other Cosmic Quandaries.....
Maybe I just wasn't in the mood for a science-y book. Maybe I over estimated my intelligence. Both are quite possible. The whole time I was listening to this, it was like listening to Charlie Browns teacher. whaa wha whaa wha whaa Galileo, wha wha E=mc2, whaa whaa whaa Gravity sucks.
I would get some really good, crunchy tidbit and be riveted.....and then the mind would drift to something like "I wonder if I fed the cats, and CRAP I forgot to start the dishwasher"........then I would drift back to the science stuff.
It just didn't hold my attention.
