The larger view

My wife is funny. A while ago she was invited to get a free facial treatment, but she really didn't feel like it, because she would have to do before and after photos. Instead she proclaimed "I want to be a model for reflexology." I nearly wrecked the car.

Then, today she was talking to a newcomer who asked her about her education. She answered that she has a Ph.D. in astrophysics, and this person then went on to ask "Then, what do you think about global warming?" As if that was funny enough, she answered "well, the Universe is cooling down."

Perhaps we should all take the larger view, that while the Earth is heating up, the much bigger problem is that the temperature of the Universe is approaching absolute zero?
