BTW: I always ment to ask, what makes H-Masers stop when there is
too much hydrogen? I can understand too little H causes the system
not having enough atoms to probe (or not getting enough energy into
the system for active masers), but i don't understand the "too many" case.
I pity people who can't find laughter or at least some bit of amusement in
the little doings of the day. I believe I could find something ridiculous
even in the saddest moment, if necessary. It has nothing to do with being
superficial. It's a matter of joy in life.
