    Next time send them to play at the Etna. Deep into the crater.

    It’s called despair. Anything, any stunt to gain attention.

    Actually this may be going somewhere interesting but not for a while. Scientists tell us that phonons or sound particles have a negative gravitational mass roughly = to the mass of an atom of hydrogen. Currently this could be further studied only by slowing sound as by passing it through a superfluid of liquid helium. But in future the tech may develop to the point where the phonon’s mass could be calibrated more precisely in plain water or a similar common fluid. It could transform the experience of singing in the shower!

    More time on the picket line, less in the pool please.
