Because silly old men on internet forums keep doubting my actual interest in the sciences so I have to bring up my bit of paper to validate myself and feed my ego

Chemistry but a significant portion of that was physics

Don't see why having an Avril Lavigne avatar and posting on a guitar forum has any sort of relevance to why I would find this discovery interest to be frank with you Rooster.

What would be more cringey would be caring about your opinion of the way I live my life

Or that post. That post did a pretty good job topping that.


EDIT: I'm just sayin', you've got a killer degree and hobbies and you're known as the "weird blonde pop star fandom guy." You're cooler than you advertise yourself.

This reminds me of the time when that lab in Japan was like "We found a neutrino going faster than light!" Then CERN tried to replicate it and everyone was like, "Ah, nevermind."

Does it matter how I advertise myself?

I like science. This is just UG however so there's not a lot of meaningful discussion to be had about it because not really many people are educated enough to understand it fully - not to mention chemistry is a pretty dense topic - although I like my exchanges with Jam in the chat thread because he is at a similar level of education

i think that was italy cuz i remember some talk about how they sent it through the Alps

could be seperate instances tho

Was wondering what the hype press conference was about. Awesome news.

(Also the state of this thread makes me think this site is no good for me.)

I guess I did it.


I don't actually understand the significance of this outside the whole first moments of creation thing. I'm not sure I understand the concept either. Then again I'm not sure I understand gravity.

thanks stew

this is exciting and all, tbh, but of all big questions i hope will be resolved in my lifetime, this wasn't one of them. maybe cause i thought the existence of gravitational waves was pretty sure and i didn't mind the lack of direct experimental evidence. but this is cool anyway and i hope it's independently confirmed

It's further bolsters general relativity as a model, confirms that light is not the only thing that travels at the speed of light, and furthers our understanding of how gravity works.

In short: one step closer to time travel


Now to discover the elusive graviton

its importance to our understanding of the moments right after the big bang is the main thing obviously, but you have to understand that gravity, unlike electromagnetic interaction, just straight up doesn't give a shit about anything

say you have a really strong electric field from some evil tesla coil, it's nbd you just put shit around it and you don't have to worry about it anymore

but gravity isn't like that, it dont stop for noone. like if you have a super-massive black hole or your mom, you can put all the matter in the universe between yourself and the hole/skank and you will still feel the exact same effects of its gravity. i mean you're also really dumb because now you also have the gravitational pull of all the matter in the universe pulling on you with impossible force but the effect of the hole/skank hasnt diminished at all

so purely theoretically, if we learn how to detect gravitational waves with great accuracy it could be game changing for observing the universe. you dont need to worry about dust and stuff like that when you have waves that pass right through it

obv this is more sci-fi than anything else at this point but baby steps innit

Just that on our current models Gluons (strong force boson) have 0 mass and so also travel at speed of light. Don't tell EndTheRapture but I have a degree in Maths, masters in theoretical physics and doctorate in quantum chemistry, but this is guitar forum so it cuts no ice right?

But gluons are virtual particles, aren't they?

What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo.


tl;dr nothing anyone says on the internet counts for shit
