Breakthroughs in Quantifiable Physics

Posted: 3rd May 2011 by 7ucyClark in miscellaneous

It was originally thought that the parsec was the greatest unit of distance known to man. I’ve since found this not to be the case. In fact, the single greatest unit of distance is the space between one’s perceived self-righteous indignation, and the impact plain of reality, hereafter referred to ‘the bottom of the bubble’, […]
