dhw: Oh golly gosh, this really is important and exciting. Nobody has a clue how many billion planets there are in the universe, and nobody has a clue whether any of them harbour life, but wowee we now have an estimate for the Milky Way. By sheer coincidence, I myself am developing a method for estimating the number of Earthlike planets in the entire universe (not just the Milky Way) and for predicting the number of INTELLIGENT CIVILIZATIONS (ICs: pronounced “Icies”) in our universe. This important and exciting research does, however, require funding, and so may I invite everyone who reads this important and exciting post to send at least $1000 to dhw’s FARCIC (Funding Astronomical Research Concerning Intelligent Civilizations) asap. Thank you.

DAVID: Shouldn't we send pounds or euros?

dhw: I’ll take any currency, but I just wanted to make it easier for you, David.

Considering rampant printing press money, Gold?


What is the purpose of living? How about, 'to reduce needless suffering. It seems to me to be a worthy purpose.
