Is a rabbit hole is the same thing as a wormhole?

Seems like it to me, the more I read about bleeding edge physics and cosmology.

Lewis Carroll should be posthumously awarded the Nobel Prize in physics for his 1865 theoretical prediction in "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland."

After all, it wasn't until 1916 that wormholes were posited as a consequence of Einstein's theory of general relativity.

You may not be able to get very far in the physics literature about wormholes, but surely time spent with Alice will not be time wasted.

My YouTube Channel Subscription Drive is ON

YouTube Subscribe

YouTube taketh away and YouTube giveth.

Earlier this year they declared that all channels with fewer than 1,000 subscribers could no longer monetize their videos.

You talkin' to me?

I guess so: at the time, I had around 500.

So there went a cool $1-$2/month.

No matter, just a flesh wound.

But it's the principle of the thing.

I mean, wasn't the internet supposed to be about the Long Tail?

Well, when YouTube cut it off I was on it.

But little gets me down for long.

Now comes the video overlord with additions to its interface, most importantly for my prospects a new feature enabling peeps to subscribe right from the embed on my YouTube channel instead of having to go through YouTube's homepage.

Just move your cursor over that avatar of me at The White Spot in my pizza shirt and a nice big red SUBSCRIBE box pops up (above).

This should result in an inflection point in my subscriber count: I project one million by the end of the year.

What?

Goethe wrote, "In boldness lies genius."

My man.

What is it?

C

Answer here this time tomorrow.

Hint: size relative to a bread box does not apply.

Another: not related or connected to — in any way, shape, or form — the world's longest lasting light bulb.
