Re: "Ouch" moments in school

Last year (britain, year 9) we had a crazy french teacher was pretty awesome other than being completely insane (and a tad bit racist), boring the clever people by going too slow and making us learn present, perfect, imperfect and future of a specified irregular verb for every lesson. This was all w...

Re: "Large Hadron Collider" Discussion

Really? I didn't know that black holes decay in vacuum. Come to think of it, yeah, there's no matter to suck in, so they can't really grow anyway, but I didn't think that they'd decay . Most of the matter has like charges, and the strong force can't hold it all together because the charges are too ...

Re: "Large Hadron Collider" Discussion

Can you explain why you think they would be different? The upper atmosphere has matter in it; thin as it is, a considerable amount compared to the vacuum (10^(-23) bar) inside the LHC. There is absolutely no way that the vacuum in the LHC beamline is 10^-23 bar. That's almost 10 orders of magnitude...

Re: "Large Hadron Collider" Discussion

In any case, I think it much more likely that a bunch of religious nutters break in, direct the beam to the earth's core and manage to pour hundreds of tons of liquid helium down the hole, thereby resulting in a explosion which throws the earth out of orbit to die a slow death as it passes Pluto......

i voted for the first law only, although I'm kind of a newb to this logic puzzles thing. Thinking about it, maybe not. There are convincing arguments for both. My argument(s); Byrd's first law and Hofstadter's law are exactly the same sentence. Therefore how can they possibly have a differen...
