Quote of the Day

While the word of the day is still smetana, here's a quote that will not make headlines though it should.

"One of the standard problems with the universe is that it's large enough that unlikely things happen pretty often."

You would think this is straight from the "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" but it is really from Nigel Sharp, program officer for extragalactic astronomy and cosmology at the U.S. National Science Foundation when speaking about recently discovered HUDF-JD2 (Hubble Ultra Deep Field) galaxy.

I think Douglas Adams would applaud this quotation, while the dolphins would just add "suckers"
