Re: "Period" Discussion

I have been trying to figure out a puzzle for a few days now which I think is another math-language pun. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. There's this girl with a tattoo on her uterus [ slightly NSFW, PG-13: http://torgo.spleens.net/skankmatics.jpg ] The closest I have come to rendering...

Re: "Period" Discussion

The wavelength of the uterus wave is 7.26 *10 ^14 m, or about 0.1 ly.

Re: "Simultaneous" Discussion

Oops, that was supposed to be c/sqrt(2) My question can still be asked, it just becomes less of a paradox since the length contraction is now imaginary and you can not get an imaginary penis into a real vagina. Imaginary? Perhaps you mean c \times \sqrt{-1} ? I thought he meant since the penis woul...

Re: "Simultaneous" Discussion

The real question is: if a man with a 12 in penis is thrusting at sqrt(2)*c into a woman with a vagina 6 in deep, does he fit? I'm new here, but wouldn't that mean he's thrusting faster than the speed of light? Yes. Sqrt(2) is 1.41...So. Tachyon penis? Oops, that was supposed to be c/sqrt(2) My que...

Re: Physics Books

For Quantum I would recommend Townsend. Also take a look at Griffiths. It is the standard intro quantum textbook. I would not recommend the Feynman Lectures. They are a great read if you want a deeper understanding of the material, they would not be a good primary textbook. Feynman himself said his ...

Re: You might be a physics major if...

I realized that a bullet wouldnt have to be moving at relativistic speeds after I posted. I went and did a back of the napkin calculations and was surprised at just how much kinetic energy even a standard bullet has. My only first hand experience with guns is bb guns as a kid; I think that subconsci...

Re: You might be a physics major if...

[anal retentiveness] Of course a true physicist knows that a person not getting thrown off their feet by a shotgun blast is not in fact due to newton's laws, but rather impulse, the density of the human body, and the time it takes the bullet to be accelerated in the gun. If you had an immensely lon...

Re: Tattoos? (Recently merged: "Geek Tattoos" [from N&A])

I have been thinking about getting Maxwell's equations in vacuum in the Lorenz gage as a tattoo. I like it because Maxwells equations are elegantly represented by a single tensor equation.

Re: Physics vs. Comp Sci -- Help

I don't really see why you need do decide between the two. Why not keep studying physics if that is something that truly interests you. You can always focus your electives and internships on computer science related topics. IMO I would avoid the double BS unless you just want to do it for fun. A BS ...

Magnetocrystalline anisotropy. Hoorah! My area of research. Quantum Chromodynamics, anyone? You win! I have been wanting to stud that area since way before I had any idea what it was. How can you resist a name like that? I am go with a couple of the least sciencey actual science phrases I have hear...

This already exists, there is a commercially produced "extreme relaxation beverage" called drank: http://www.drankbeverage.com/. This stuff is real; I saw it at the convenience store today. It contains: rose hips, melatonin, and Valerian root. Next time I want to "slow my roll" I...
