"There are countless horrible things happening all over the world and horrible people prospering, but we must never allow them to disturb our equanimity or deflect us from our sacred duty to sabotage and annoy them whenever possible." -Auberon Waugh
I can think of some people I'd like to see float away!
Born in Woudenberg, in the Netherlands, in 1962, the brothers got early inspiration from a pair of 1970s television shows about particle physics and black holes. “I was completely captured,” Dr. Verlinde recalled.Look, a punny.Looking at gravity from this angle, they say, could shed light on some of the vexing cosmic issues of the day, like the dark energy, a kind of anti-gravity that seems to be speeding up the expansion of the universe, or the dark matter that is supposedly needed to hold galaxies together. BUT, this man needs to be reported to the NAACP and Malik. Terribly racist, he is.
Lead is immune to lack of gravity?I did not know that...
I honestly tried to understand what the Verlindes were trying to say, but this strikes me as a completely idiosyncratic understanding of some vague concept that is only understood between the brothers. They haven't found a way to express it in language OR mathematics, which doesn't mean there isn't something there. I'd only ask: if gravity doesn't exist, please explain in concrete terms what sticks us to the ground?If you can't, piss off.
Mojo: Well, not to a total lack of gravity, no.
I dunno, mojo, lead shields Superman from Kryptonite. Why not from the absence of gravity?;-p
RebeccaHThe earth just sucks.Cheers
