Gooblek is a 2-to-1 suspension of cornstarch in water. It acts like a liquid if you move it slowly, but a solid if you hit it or squeeze it. Click below for info on Asparagus Pee.

So I was thinking this morning, as I was reading a book called The Golden Ratio, all about the, um, golden ratio, and it occurred to me to wonder... what would I think about things if I had not been taught what to think all my life, but I still, somehow, had all my wits about me? If I lived to be 50 or whatever, how much would I be able to figure out about how the world works, like the guys back in 3500 B.C. who were just starting to notice that there were patterns to what the moon and the sun and the seasons were doing. How long would it take me to notice pairs of things? How high would I be able to count? Would I settle for the status quo and count 1, 2, 3, 'many?' Would I try to make some marks on something to help me remember things?
The real questions are:
I mean, I never watched a single episode of X-files, but I believe 'the truth is out there.' I also agree with the great Martin Gardner (of Scientific American's Mathematical Games fame) when he says in his book Did Adam and Eve have Navels?, 'I believe there are truths as far beyond our grasp as calculus is beyond the grasp of a cat.'
