Considering your avatar I thought this might have something to with a cats inability to ignore a string.... :D

Seriously though string theory has always interested me (although i truely understand almost nothing about it)

I don't, either. But I take heart from Richard Feynman's comment about quantum physics: "I think I can safely say that nobody understands quantum mechanics." If someone that brilliant can admit that there are still many things that the greatest minds in the world don't understand, at least I know I'm in good company.

All right, I see what's going on. This is the opening salvo in what will be an escalating series of juvenile tit for tat exchanges. Well titted! Stand by for my upcoming tat. --Dr. Sheldon Cooper
