seriously, there really are some good cartoon books out there even in 
English that will help you wrap your head around the science. for 
gravitational theory and spacetime, the cartoons really help. write me 
offlist and i can give you some good cartoon books.

you were mentioning the Ask Dr Science shows of old. this conversation 
reminded me of stories i heard about my grandfather, who used to go to 
Party meetings to study arithmetic and algebra. most of his comrades had 
no schooling as far as i recall, and they took their extracurricular 
studies quite seriously, so i am told.

the problem is, sometimes i think Grandpa may have had more free time 
than we do.
