Science is simply not capable of providing the answers to every question in life.
Anyways, I finally got around to buying The Hobbit on Blu-Ray. Now, that I can watch it at home and not worry about being surrounded by impatient people in the audience, I think I actually enjoy the movie more. But that's been the case with all of the LOTR movies.
I wonder if we're getting an extended edition of this movie soon.
