A month has past and no major questioning of the detection of gravitational waves, and still, I do not pack up my bags and desert this endeavour. Does this put me into the same category of cranks who have the germ of a good idea and subsequently are blind to anything that contradicts it; maybe. But at least I am trying to be open about it. I do have questions/doubts about these results, but no doubt the coming months, when fresh results are detected, will resolve them, one way or the other.

Meanwhile, elsewhere, the anthropomorphising of black holes continues unabated, what with pairs of black holes now being likened to twins in a pregnant woman's stomach! I thought talk of such descriptions of black holes as being messy eaters as going a bit too far for credibility.
