You've got to be kidding me, Subby! I've been further even more decided to use even go need to do look more as anyone can. Can you really be far even as decided half as much to use go wish for that? My guess is that when one really been far even as decided once to use even go want, it is then that he has really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like. It's just common sense.

WelldeadLink: uttertosh: If the above is correct, then all the particles should decay at nearly the same time, since they were all brought into existence at nearly the same time.

You probably don't understand the concept of half-life.


head crabs bad. Crowbar good. What else do you need to know?

How do you think that article was written?

If the above is correct, then all the particles should decay at nearly the same time, since they were all brought into existence at nearly the same time. One has to wonder how that would happen. All the things associated with our universe, everything - even our afterlives, gone in a few moments of disintegration. No heaven, no hell, no thoughts, no traces... Just a few singularities forever dark and passive - their last bits of information slowly evaporating from their event horizons, and slowly cooling leptons dispersing sadly like the watery remnants of a soap bubble. The only thing we can hope for is that somewhere, somehow, someone blows another bubble, and that some form of strange attraction draws the essense of who and what we were to occupy that universe for a few moments.

Of course, Like is said in the Superlist a few articles earlier, what we don't know about the universe is vast. What we know now is like a single quark compared to the entirety of all the quarks that make up the universe... When you think of it that way, that all the things we "know" don't even add up to compose an entire atom or even subatomic particle when compared to the potential of the entire universe of matter and energy... well... lets just say there's lots of room for hope and learning.

Terrified Asexual Forcemeat: Even if one proton has a half-life of 10^33 years, isn't that about equal to watching a bucket of water for a few minutes?


How long does it take 2 men to dig 1/2 a hole, assuming the one man is a Swedish supermodel and the other is a bucket of sea urchins on steroids wearing a yellow shirt?
