    Is anyone watching this fantastic new show? It's on (right now) Wed nights 9-10PM on PBS.

    It's based on the idea that anyone can think like a genius, given the right demonstrations. He takes a simple question, like tonight it's "What is life?" Then explains the very complex answer in a way most anyone can understand. Facinating.

    Saw it last week where the took a photo from Hubble and extrapolated it out that there are 250,000,000,000 galaxies. I love shit like that. Had no idea it was a series. Thanks for the heads up.

    I wish they would use his thoughts, but have a narrator read it. I saw 1 show where he'd do maybe the first line of every story and then someone would take over.
