Did they sit with elders of a gentle race this world has seldom seen?

Ooh, yeah-yeah, ooh, yeah-yeah.

Aw, it's my favourite force. I once got to sleep with a physics grad by murmuring, like Drake crossed with Hawking "baby, I want to get so close to you there's a Casimir effect."

Epic lay once the barrettes and glasses were jolted off.

FTFA: One curious feature of the Casimir effect is that it is hugely sensitive to the shape of the parts involved.

It's magic!

I'd like to hear more about this notion of Casimir repulsion.

But seriously, all those virtual particles pushing you together, I'd feel slightly violated..

There was no "slightly" involved, my friend. Very much a "final frontier" evening for the lady in question. Boldly invited, and so boldly went.

You are clearly unfamilar with the concept of a banya.

farkin' Casimir Force, how does it work?

Syria has an airforce?

I'm pretty sure this is leading up to Black Mesa creating a resonance cascade.

/there really is a Black Mesa near Los Alamos

Dear Scientific American,

I never thought something like this would happen to me...

It's what I called the Big Bang Theory at the time. Chuck owes me a beer.

Stiction. Rhymes with friction. Definitely going into my next MC Hawking rap.

Does it involve counterfeit casino chips?

This is misleading, they're not suppressing the the Casimir effect at all.  They're engineering the structure so the Casimir effect doesn't arise as strongly in the first place.  It's useful, but not nearly as impressive.

Stiction  is friction.  Can't rhyme one thing with another thing that is actually the same thing.

My best one was "You spilled beer on my comforter.  You *OWE* me".

/It actually worked.

Yeah, that piqued my interest too. Casimir oscillator, anyone?

Kinda like gauge blocks (jo blocks) for nukes. Put a ridge in and write a grant paper.
 
2013-10-11 11:02:52 PM  
so we get a reusable nuclear bomb casing?
