Have a good one!

The above ontological example models the zero premise to BB theory. It does so by applying the relative uniformity assumption that the alleged zero event eventually ontologically progressed from the compressed alleged sub-microscopic chaos to bloom/expand into all of the present observable order, more than it models the Biblical record evidence for the existence of Jehovah, the maximal Biblical god designer.

Does a query (thats a question Stile) that uses this physical reality, to look for an answer to its existence and properties become theoretical, considering its deductive conclusions are based against objective verifiable realities.

I had to work New Years Day and I had to take a cab because the buses weren't running. On the way, the driver got a phone call from his father in India wishing him a Happy New Year.
So, six hours into the new year I learned:
  1. Technology is amazing.
  2. Stereotypes are alive and well.

Happy New Year!!
*this is where Kermit the Frog waves his arms all wildly*
Is 2013 considered an unlucky year by anyone? I haven't heard of anything like that yet. I don't know if I haven't heard of it because no one thinks it's unlucky... or if I haven't heard of it because it's even too unlucky to talk about...
Do high-rises generally have a 13th floor now? Or are they still leaving that out?
Then again... "2012 gave us two raptures, an apocalypse, and the reelection of the 'Kenyan Muslim Socialist Antichrist Obama'". Or so I've heard reading other article comments. So maybe there's no place to go but up?

I used to work on the 13th floor of a building. On 13th St.

The human understanding when it has once adopted an opinion (either as being the received opinion or as being agreeable to itself) draws all things else to support and agree with it.
- Francis Bacon
"There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs." - John Rogers
A world that can be explained even with bad reasons is a familiar world. But, on the other hand, in a universe suddenly divested of illusions and lights, man feels an alien, a stranger. His exile is without remedy since he is deprived of the memory of a lost home or the hope of a promised land. This divorce between man and his life, the actor and his setting, is properly the feeling of absurdity. — Albert Camus
"...the pious hope that by combining numerous little turds of
variously tainted data, one can obtain a valuable result; but in fact, the
outcome is merely a larger than average pile of shit." Barash, David 1995.
