Everything Else

The stamp collectors and the physicists were accidentally booked into the same convention hall at the same time. The organizers of both groups met and agreed to divide the hall in half and hold both meetings concurrently. It was not the best way to conduct their business but it seemed the only way to resolve the error. As the day wore on the stamp collectors were seduced by string theory. The physicists grew bored with quantum fluctuation effects and turned to the pleasant distraction of pretty stamps. They all adjourned for lunch together and discussed the taste of stamp adhesives.

Ha! Love this.

Philately physics. Why not? This is the sort of convention that happens in my brain, actually. I bet Brian Greene would go.
Yes, I bet he was there. Perhaps he even organized it...
