ISO15693: Cave Johnson here. Those test subject wishing to make MORE than $60, and dont mind us flipping your molecular state to one where cold objects become hotter, in the name of SCIENCE, go see the nurse on level 10. And please, before you go, wash any flammable grease out of your beards.


Bad news, test subjects. The Temperature Inversion test has been cancelled. We do, however, have a new test for you, testing Microwave Ray Emitters against abominable ice monsters. Grab a weapon from the racks on level 9 and follow the blue line down the stairs to level 10. You'll know when the test begins.

ZoeNekros: The temperature of the particles is still a few nanokelvin above absolute zero (they still have mean molecular motion greater than zero), but are manipulated to have some properties that high temperature objects exhibit. Hence, it is 'negative' -- inverting said properties. In the debt/wealth, above/below sense, it still has a 'positive' temperature.


So it's like bundling a bunch of shaky mortgages and putting a AAA credit rating on the whole thing?

What happened to you, Absolute Zero? You used to be the coolest.

Ok, physics has officially jumped the shark. I'm going to watch chemistry instead.

So now Spinal Tap will have to crank it down to -11?

Some body divided by absolute zero, dammit.

You can never get to zero so long as you have an infinite number of decimal places on your scale.

This is why math must be stopped. Well, that and because Jesus.
