Wow! Did someone tell them they weren't cringe enough?

Some people enjoy cringe tv/ podcasts.

I have heard of fully grown men watching love island.

Been listening to the Blindboy podcast - it's pretty random but if you give it time and get the swing of it over a few episodes it's quite good

Best thing on the internet. He did a live one with McWilliams last week which was excellent. I actually had tickets to see it in Vicar st but couldn't make it on the day.

He has a couple more extra ones coming up - not sure who the guests are. I couldn't get tickets to the last one (if only I'd known!!!) - was thinking of suggesting to the real boss we should go along and see what it's like

Probably accurately accused of bias on this but just listened to Molecast #17 whichcoveredd most of the rugby matters of the weekend & beyond. A seriously good listen for an hour. Those guys know their rugby!

The end of the world with Josh Clarke is fab. It's about existential threat and life in our universe. FAB

Just finished #18 and I have to say, one of its most endearing qualities is the feeling that this conversation would be happening verbatim without the mic.

Time is very, very long, space is very, very large, the speed of light is a constant.

Did I mention how big space was, just how giant the distance between stars and galaxies?

The average span of existence of a mammal species on earth is around a million years, we're near that, and we've been communicating in a way visible to others for what, .01% of that time? enough time to reach the tiniest, absolutely unmentionably small percentage of the known universe with the weakest signals.

What would be a paradox, or at least an event of unimaginable unlikeliness based on what we know now, is if anyone showed up and got back to us.

I don't see any paradox in the vastness of space (and the only recently confirmed existence and proliferation of exoplanets), the likely reproducability of evolution (and the seeding of planets with organic matter from comets) and the fact that we have never met aliens.
Did I mention that time is very long? This planet is what, 6 billion years old and we've been around for on six thousandth of that and emitting radio for one 10 thousandth of that...

...reminded me of...

Space is big. Really big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way down the road to the chemist, but that's just peanuts to space.

Yeah, the paradox arises from that statement. Life developed very quickly here, it should have done so closer to the centre of the universe, ergo other civilisations should have come and gone and we should be picking up signs of their existence even if they are extinct. This planet emits radio waves across a huge frequency range. We have launched satellites that have gone interstellar. Surely they have too and should have done so from multiple solar systems millions of yrs ago.

Another weird and wonderful fact: we *are* at the centre of the universe, or we've just as much claim to that title as any other place in the universe.

It's because it's space-time itself that's expanding.

If you make dots all over a balloon and then blow the balloon up, the dots all move further away from each other.

But none of them is more "the centre" than another any more than Dublin is more the centre of the world than Bangkok.

So, same with the universe. But in four dimensions.

And we're looking at the other cosmic balloon dots as they used to be millions or billions of years ago.

And the dots are heavy so they warp the balloon's surface.

My brain is off for a lie down.
