Greg, I've heard of this theory. If there is not enough mass in your foot,
it may continue to expand forever. If your foot does have enough mass, it
is doomed to ultimatley collapse into itself as a point with infinite mass
(the big crunch). This theory is difficult to test though because it takes
billions of years, well beyond the life expectency of the average human.

Thanks for the comment, mark
