doglover: clocking in 300 million electron volts per meter

Methinks the author of the article doesn't understand units.

300 million electron volts per meter?  Wow!  With that kind of power, she could make the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs!

MooseUpNorth: doglover: It's like a cop giving you a ticket for being too many Newtons over the speed limit.

Heh, reminds me of a dream I had a couple of years ago where I got arrested for driving 37 knots in a school zone.

Schools zones are strictly no wake.

What they don't tell you is that grain of rice is 100 feet long and 4 rhode islands deep.

I poured a whole bag of rice in my puter, but it's not going any faster....

The fans are really noisy now though.

Benevolent Misanthrope: So?  I guarantee you, nothing will happen with it.  The great advances of the past that have led to cell phones, Internet, and so forth are over.  Now, the only way this thing will see the light of day in any kind of consumer aplication is if some corporation figures out how to make tons of money on it, while simultaneously locking out everyone else.

There is absolutely a consumer application for this.  A black hole generator would easily provide moments of entertainment before I destroyed the world because I'm too lazy to manually rake leaves off the lawn.

revrendjim: indarwinsshadow: Electrons move at the speed of light.

No they don't. They have mass,

So all Sunday morning, they're just sitting around.

show me: 100 million Electron volts per meter is a unit of force equal to about 16 picoNewtons. Some of you nee to look shiat up before you sound like dumbasses.

Nah, I can sound like a dumbass without looking up shiat before.
