Why would an infinite universe still expand?

Suppose you are standing in the middle of the Great Sahara desert. You can only see sand; there's nothing else. People will claim this desert is infinite, while scientists claim it's expanding. Both views (ie, infinite vs expanding) do not reconcile. You cannot have your cake and eat it too. Something similar is happening regarding the Universe. In my view, the...

Nothing to lose

Some four years ago, a friend in Belgium died on the same day that I bought my house near the Belgian border. I had hoped visiting her more often. My friend had been worried about her imminent death.

Single: by choice, circumstances, or both?

Recently, I watched a video interview in which a man says something along the lines of "You're so pretty and still single; how can that be?" The woman is clearly stung by that remark.
