Hey Alex! I think in one instance, on History's "The Universe" episode on the Speed of Light, someone finally pointed out that we say the universe is 14 billion years old because that's how far we can see; and that from a point 14 billion light years away, one would observe themselves at the center of a universe that also has a radius of 14 billion light years. That was the happiest moment in tv science history for me.
What I would ask is, is the cosmic background radiation boundary just the point at which our ability to distinguish longer radio wavelengths ends? Like trying to see a boob in scrambled 80's Cinemax broadcasts?
