"What if there were three sexes? What if men could have babies? What if Earth didn't have a moon? What if all the air in the room went into one corner? What if you fell into a black hole? What if you could unscramble an egg?" "Eavesdrop on these free-wheeling conversations and stretch your imagination in 120 different directions! In these flippant "what if" dialogues about everything from sex, aliens, dogs, and dinosaurs to space, matter, and time, Robert Ehrlich blurs the boundaries between science fact and science fiction. Come travel through these zany alternative universes - and understand our own a bit better!"--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved
