Steiner on the 25th January how old was Peanut Brittle?
Hawking, in his respected tome - Peanut Brittle, Present at the Beginning of the Universe!, states PB is around 15 billion years old.
Interesting... When the Sun dies in 6 billion years time in a giant ball of flame and takes the earth with it, will Peanut Brittle survive?
I suspect the answer is yes; if so, why don't they make black box flight recorders out of PB - or better still, the planes themselves?
Just a thought.....
Of course PB will survive. I am also disappointed that you seem unaware that the United States uses Peanut Brittle for black boxes. What the hell else could account for the indestructibility of those things?
In JFK's plan for American Invincibility, Jacques Barzun writes - "John F. Kennedy had just ordered all U.S. military and civilian aircraft be constructed of Peanut Brittle, beginning upon his return from Dallas. However, he had not officially signed the Presidential executive order before leaving for the Dallas bar-b-que eating vacation" hence the changeover was never made. Strange how history can change on a dime, or bullet.
The black boxes cannot be made from PB, otherwise some would survive their accidents - which they do not all do
Strange Fact: the oft mentioned Dallas grassy knoll was in fact made of artificial grass using a PB / Mushy Pea composite.
Ahem. They do survive, but some are spirited away by the CIA.
Yeah, I heard about the PBMP composite. It is believed the shooter on the knoll ate the BPB said knoll while waiting for the Presidential motorcade.
