Whoa, baby, that's some kind of growth spurt!

"Under the influence of a mysterious force field during the first trillionth of a fraction of a second, what would become the observable universe ballooned by 100 trillion trillion times in size from a subatomic pinprick to a grapefruit in less than a violent eye-blink." - Dennis Overbye, The New York Times

I am also struck by "a violent eye-blink." If you could see me now, you would see me trying out different blinks to try and find "violence." :)

I did the same kind of hairy-eyeball at the violent eye-blink. I mean, who does the violent eye blink? God?

Nice, now I have a whole range of god images violently blinking. Hee hee.

I bet when God blinks evilly his eyebrow goes all haywire.
