    John 3:16-17

    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    Ripley's sure does keep it's content fresh. Joey the Squirrel Story just happened here in our neck of the woods, or should I say house, just a couple months ago. The story was picked up all over the world which is why I guess it made Ripley's Believe it or not files.

    There is no such thing as a trillion time colder than liquid nitrogen. Liquid nitrogen is 320 degrees below zero F. Absolute zero is 459.67 degrees below zero F.
    459.67 F. degrees below zero is absolute zero which is the absence of ALL heat and the absence of ALL energy. At 459.67 below zero nothing exists because at that temperature electrons will not even orbit their atoms, hence not even matter of any kind can exist at that temperature. Those scientists are telling fibs.
    For instance, 20 below zero is twice as cold as 10 below zero. Therefore something twice as cold as 459.67 degrees would be 919.34 degrees below zero.
    Mater would cease to exist long before that was achieved, much less a trillion times colder that liquid nitrogen which is merely 320 degrees below zero.
    How do I know this you may ask? I was once a cryogenic engineer who ran a plant that made liquid nitrogen. Incidentally your TW would be very hard to start at the temperature of liquid nitrogen.

    I was scratching my head when I read the "trillion" sentence.

    Thank you for sharing that.

    Liquid nitrogen?
    That must have been a cool job.
