    Oh, I'm okay with it being cold. I just like my warmth "on-demand" and plentiful! ==c

    And cheap. Very, very cheap.

    A man will work to dusk from dawn, but a woman's work is never done?

    I thought I read someplace that binary stars are actually much more common that singles. Never heard of a ... what would it be... "quadrary" ?

    Not just four stars, but the placement of the four stars is also odd. Pretty neat stuff.

    Yeah, just imagine: you are rotating around two stars that are rotating around each other. Outside your stellar orbit are two more stars, rotating each other while rotating your primary binary stars. All this will make your orbit eccentric and probably very irregular, so your seasons would not be the same each year. And the bizarre sunrises & sunsets.

    Betcha Solar is a viable energy source there. I highly doubt they have night as we know it.
