I logged in and there is not a single message showing on the main page. Bug again?

Darn. I thought this was going to be a deep philosophical discussion on one of the Great Questions: Why is there something rather than nothing?

Remember, no matter where you go, there you are!

Indeed, everything is wherever they are.

Ochoin et al:

Most of everything was cancelled out at the start of the last Big Bang when matter and antimatter annihilated each other. Now we're left with an observable universe which at best is only 7% matter. Add in the Heisenberg Uncertainty principle that matter is a mass-energy quantum and the question of where everything is becomes unanswerable because the act of observation alters the observable data. Throw in quantum entanglement and the concept of where becomes even more uncertain as location becomes fuzzy in terms of the effect of matter on other matter.

So we'll have to redefine the question and the nomenclature with which we ask and answer the question. I prefer to drink beer and play table-top miniatures games on a large enough scale that all minis can be treated like massive particles with no wave function observable. Old fashioned but comforting.

Cheers and good gaming.

The old Tango myth. Really?
He has been identified as an off-shoot of the ancient Hurrian thunder god or, perhaps, the Cthonic version of a Hindoo diety sometimes called Pashyou the Embracer. Our "Tango" is probably an atavistic attempt to explain the unexplainable & apart from a tenuous "reality" in our collective gesalt is a mere figment (or if you're religious, a mere fig leaf).

So Tango 01 should be Tarhunt 01? Interesting.
