Since in the next ten years they may find 1300 or perhaps even more new solutions to the problem I would not count on it helping you loose weight.

However, I will count on iy increasing someones trash bill.

I have one body. If I had a wife i would have two bodies. Three bodies would probably be a child, that would be wonderful and not a problem.

So, why was it called "The Clockwork Universe" if they couldn't even solve a 3-body problem?
