These guys are a lot like my cats. Give them a new toy, and the first thing they do is break it

Now this is interesting. Scientists have discovered a "dark flow" of matter traveling in a uniform direction (like a shot pattern), moving toward a specific region in the sky. Some scientists feel that it is being "pulled" by a force outside the observable, or known, universe.

They are speculating that outside the "bubble" of our known universe, the laws of space/time may be very different from those we know, if not changed completely.

They also speculate that there may be unimaginably massive structures (a bit like "cores") that could be the objects pulling this "dark flow" toward themselves.

Just thought that was kind of neat.

So...did everyone see that the CERN accelerator had its magnets melt down, so it had to be shut off, warmed up, repaired, and recooled, which will take at least a couple of months.

I grok that, baby!

Now...I DID read a science fiction book a while back that had as a basic premise that the normal progession of the universe would slowly cause the laws of physics to change.

I did see the article about the "Dark Flow" this morning. Very interesting!

I suppose there might be something to that; in relativisitic physics, time is variable depending on the observer's perspective. So what might be predicted by Newtonian physics is a little bit off, and as one's galaxy hurtles through the universe, the Newtonian physical laws might be off a little less or a little more depending on the relative velocity.

Maybe that's why they can't find a unified theory to connect relativity and quantum physics? Because it keeps changing, and we just don't know it?

we are doomed for sure now

"
HONOLULU — A federal judge in Hawaii has dismissed a lawsuit trying to stop the world's largest atom smasher.

U.S. District Court Judge Helen Gilmor ruled Friday that federal courts don't have jurisdiction over the Large Hadron Collider in Europe, near Geneva.

Two Hawaii residents sued because they feared that the machine could create small black holes or other phenomena that could destroy the planet."

I'm so excited about this. I don't think we realize how much information we are going to get from this.

As for a black hole eating the earth, it's just as likely a dragon would pop out of it.

In all due respect to black holes, a dragon would be soooooooooo cool.

yea yea, well i am so big it would take a few years for me to get sucked up.
Us big and tall, people will be getting sucked up alot slower.

the skinny people will be gone first ehheeh

A dragon really would be cool

I also believe that once this thing is working to full capacity (as long as they quit melting parts), we will find out things that will rock the knowledge and beliefs of this little human race to the core.
