Tonight's sunset..... and other stuff.

And for an old "know-it-all" like me, that's a particular challenge. I sometimes even comment on things related to quantum mechanics, and I really don't know quantum mechanics at all.

This is a fairly long lecture, and you may not wish to sit through it all, but if you watch some of it, you'll get an idea what it's all about. Fascinating stuff...
