A most delicious state of matter indeed.

So by applying super complex math we can make super minute predictions about particles which may not even exist.

This is where mathematical science gets you. We need a quantum Einstein to come through and break it down into English, as well as make it pretty.

Having 500 states of matter is a clusterfark of epic proportions and cannot be the best way to describe the situation.

Don't talk to a p-chemist.  They will convince you that every time two atoms are at a different distance from another two atoms, it's a different micro-state of matter.

I think we now have the knowledge we need to build the first stargate. Control and manipulation of quantum entagled pairs FTW.

Quantum Apostrophe: Bowel movements?


Plasma was left out of the headline, so I'm curious as to where that would fit in.

Sometimes I get these silent yet burning hot streams that I can feel even on my yambag. That should qualify. IBS is wonderful if you have the right sense of humor, and quick access to a toilet.

I'll take mine scattered, smothered, covered, chunked, topped, and diced.

Sounds like the aftereffects of the cabbage I ate yesterday.

When I was eight, I read an article about exotic states of matter in the World Book "Science Year". That was the coolest article ever. Superconductors! Super fluids! Quarks! The Free Nucleon State! I probably didn't understand every word of it at the time, but I've been hooked on science ever since.

Is this like saying there are many ways of spelling dog?

dog
Dog
dOg
DOg
doG
DoG
dOG
DOG

Then, italics, bold, large, small etc etc

repeat for each font and size.

semantic pedantic physics....

Sadly, no. It isn't.

They are saying the dOg (Labrador) arrangement of water at -53 c and the DoG (pit bull) one at -54c behave differently and conduct electricity and other practical differences exist and that these differences are the causes for things like proteins breaking down during cryogenic freeze.

Do these really mean the "state" of the matter is different? Not really, as they are both liquid states, but yes because there are distinguishable differences in water between them.

It's just that those are different spellings of the word dog.

"dog" would probably indicate a noun, although it has been used as a verb as well.
"Dog" would probably be a proper name.
"DOG" and "DoG" could both be abbreviations (Department of Groundhogs?).

Spelling in English may be pedantic but it does matter (no pun intended). To a physicist it may not be pedantic at all.
