I'm limited to 510 characters for a description, so I'll waste a few making that comment. What else? There's a ton - are Big Bang and Cyclic Universe theories logical illusions? What forms of mathematics create beauty? Coffee, tea or a chocolate bar? ... or maybe what would an ideal partnership with someone be like? I'm both a "couch surfer" and explorer ... where might you like to go? I'm wishing us all the best.

Here are a couple (NON-CAT!) YouTube videos I think you might enjoy ;) Monkey sees a magic trick (only about 40 seconds long or so) and poor Sheldon (from "The Big Bang Theory" is once again drunk.  It's alost amazing how him and the monkey are SO hu...
