    If you want to bend your mind with concepts of "big", try this (a "Hubble volume" is the size of the visible universe, a sphere with a radius of 14 billion light-years, more or less):

    A generic prediction of chaotic inflation is an infinite ergodic universe, which, being infinite, must contain Hubble volumes realizing all initial conditions.

    Accordingly, an infinite universe will contain an infinite number of Hubble volumes, all having the same physical laws and physical constants. In regard to configurations such as the distribution of matter, almost all will differ from our Hubble volume. However, because there are infinitely many, far beyond the cosmological horizon, there will eventually be Hubble volumes with similar, and even identical, configurations. Tegmark estimates that an identical volume to ours should be about ((10)10 power)115 power meters away from us. This estimate implies use of the cosmological principle, wherein one assumes our Hubble volume is not special or unique. By extension of the same reasoning, there would, in fact, be an infinite number of Hubble volumes identical to ours in the universe.

    (From here: Multiverse - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

    This implies not only another forum where they're arguing over chain lubes, but also another davids who is simultaneously posting this to the Velocipede Salon. Actually, it implies not "another", but an infinite number of others.

    I think I just sprained my brain again...
    GO!

    our whole solar system...
    could be, like...
    one tiny atom in the fingernail
    of some other giant being.

    This is too much!

    That means...
    -one tiny atom in my fingernail could be--
    -Could be one little...
    tiny universe.

    Walter Sobchak: What the fuck are you talking about? I converted when I married Cynthia! Come on, Dude!
    The Dude: Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah...
    Walter Sobchak: And you know this!
    The Dude: Yeah, and five fucking years ago you were divorced.
    Walter Sobchak: So what are you saying? When you get divorced you turn in your library card? You get a new license? You stop being Jewish?
    The Dude: It's all a part of your sick Cynthia thing, man. Taking care of her fucking dog. Going to her fucking synagogue. You're living in the fucking past.
    Walter Sobchak: Three thousand years of beautiful tradition, from Moses to Sandy Koufax... [shouting] You're goddamn right I'm living in the fucking past!

    Did you just admit to not seeing one of the best movies ever? Hopefully by now this has been resolved.

    the radio signal from 250 light years away... says tri flow is the preferred lube on their planet.

    i signaled back to ask how wet their planet is...i find tri flow imperfect under wet conditions.
    anyone around in 500 yrs please check on this.
