Mailbag: Seinfeld's Second Shot, More

Based on the aforementioned Michael's reaction, the second Seinfeld-Gates commercial is already more successful than the first:

In case you haven't seen it yet, here is the next installment. It's on YouTube. I was crying about 30 seconds in. That grandmother is hilarious.
-Michael

But that might not make a difference for Darren from the U.K., who has just one question:

Sorry, who is Seinfeld?
-Darren

And Raymond shares his thoughts on the naysayers who think the Large Hadron Collider will only spell disaster:

I do not understand why the fear mongers want to stop the LHC. I may not be a particle physics major, but I would love to see what we will learn from their experiments and, like the article stated, we have higher energy collisions that are being caused by cosmic rays all around us and they have not destroyed the earth.

There are always doom-and-gloom people out there and we never seem to learn to ignore them. When they tested the first atomic bomb, there were people that were worried that the chain reaction would not stop and the earth would be destroyed. I can remember when all the planets aligned on the same side of our sun and it was not torn apart like some apocalypse doomsayers said it would. By the way, if I recall, we were supposed to go back to the Stone Age when the year 2000 hit because of the Y2K computer bug...so I guess I am not really writing this message to you after all.
