Strings & Things

Because my Stephen King (Dark Tower) books have not yet arrived, I have decided to spend my spare time learning theoretical physics.

When I tell people things like this they look at me strangely. Specifically, I am trying to gain a basic comprehension of space-time and string theory. At the moment I am reading Stephen Hawking's A Brief History of Time which has been collecting dust on my shelf for some time. After that, I am going to read The Elegant Universe by Brian Greene. I got turned onto this book by watching documentaries on YouTube. If you search for "Elegant Universe" at www.youtube.com you should be able to see them yourself.

I love YouTube. But mostly for the videos of people's cats doing cute stuff. And the OK Go treadmill movie.
