Conversations with the Family

Me: Superstring Theory posits that the universe exists in 10 dimensions.

Family: That's crazy! Think of all the calculations in a three-dimentional plane. It's complicated enough already. The equations of a four-dimentional universe is extremely complicated. It's mind-boggling!

Me: You're not gonna challenge it?

Family: Why? It's just a theory. The onus is on the people who came up with it to prove it.

Me: Well, I can't even think of the extra six dimensions, beyond time.

Family: Then, read some more.

I could only get this kind of dumbass conversations here. In a swamp.
