It's Deus ex Machina (God from the machine) which is Donnie, the unexpected device that provides the solution. When he has the knife to his throat he says "Deus ex Machina" and then "Our Savior". Just an interesting note.

My favorite line is:

Donnie: Why do you wear that stupid bunny suit?
Frank: Why are you wearing that stupid man suit? :-D

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Aren't there like 11 or 12 dimensions in string theory?

That song, "Mad World", is a re-make by Gary Jules. The original version is by Tears for Fears.

I don't remember much about string theory..it was captivating though....Its like life is constantly going in other directions so there are dimensions possible for every decision you make or something....

Yea i learned that song on the guitar super easy!

The refrain I can't quite remember...its really easy but super powerful...and kinda depressing...

Depressing? You don't say?

" And I find it kind of funny
I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which I'm dying
Are the best I've ever had "

Lifts my spirits!

There are 10 dimensions, 5-10 lay on top of each other at the edge of the universe and are currently beyond conceptualization.

I found it finally. There area at least 10 dimensions in string theory, and of those 10, 6 exist in a "ball" separate but united within the other four that we know now.

If you've never read the or seen the special The Elegant Universe, you'll find that site quite helpful to understanding string theory. I know I sure did.

Good news for those that don't win their league this year. You can say:

"Well, I didn't win my league...in THIS dimension."
