The last edition of the Never-Ending Thread has once again grown beyond reason, with no end in sight. At the same time, a thread that began with a sneer at creationists and grew to such proportions that it needed to expand to another thread has also bloated up to the point where it needs trimming.
So there I am, holding two tubes on the internet that are pulsing and spewing, ready to cut both off…and what is any scientist’s natural inclination in such circumstances? Why, to take the severed ends and suture them together and see what happens! That is this new thread, an anastomosis between two, count ’em, two old threads. I wonder…will it explode?
I must also confess to some curiosity about how Sven will cope with the fusion.
