Ah, dealing with the cream of the crop.

i like you but i am confused, was that a dig?   lets play nice, this is the things that piss you off thread.  complaints and advice. - no digs.

 

No it was a complaint about someone on a different message board giving wrong fitness advice that is not supported by the research, because a friend of hers, and some celebrity trainers have said it.  The celebrity trainers only came up after I called her on it, with letters appended to my name to illustrate that I actually knew what I was talking about.

Einstein was a theoretical physicist and that worked out pretty damn well. His work on emission and absorption coefficients predicted lasers way ahead of their time, and without that, the experimentalists may never have known where to push to invent them.

Not to mention that Maxwell's desire for mathematical rigor in theory led to his eponymous equations, which in turn led Einstein to relativity after trying to make them jive with Lorentz's theoretical work.

Shoulders of giants and all...

I didn't know that Einstein liked to dance.

For a short time after law school I dealt with SSDI cases (on the Claimant's side). That is where I developed my conviction that fibromyalgia and lime disease are lies perpetrated by malingerers.

thank you brother. hence I have parted with my money in exchange of a kitchen sink made of heavy gauge stainless steel.

All the wives/girlfriends are getting together to help plan things so the hosts have asked that we toss them some money to offset costs. All they are asking is $30 a head for all you can eat and drink, with the leftover cash going to decorations, entertainment, etc.

One of the dudes invited is legitimately pissed that he has to pay $60 for him and his girlfriend, saying that they are eating beforehand and bringing their own booze. This seriously pisses me off. Our friends are offering their home (which will be trashed) for a party of close to 80 people and asking for a small kick into the kitty. You can't even do dinner and a fucking movie for $60, never mind what NYE bar/club events cost. To make matters more frustrating, this same guy was bragging about how well he was doing last time we spoke. On the bright side I'll likely get loaded and call him out at some point. Maybe they should toss me some of the money for entertainment?

this reminds me: had a dinner last night with old friends, and since the place we're having dinner is owned by a couple of them they're footing the bill. and this is probably our christmas dinner since everyone's busy and all that... and one of our friends is so fucking flaky and always makes excuses or makes a stupid retort like "I've had my quota of seeing you guys already"... anyway, he opted not to join us, because he signed up for a basketball camp practice or something, which pissed off some of my friends immensely- specially since another friend who joined the same camp is joining us for dinner. and then this friend texts me last night asking how was the food, and I asked him how was basketball and he said he didn't go and he's in another party. sometimes I don't know why I bother..

:crackup:

 

physicists....... thinking only they get it. theory's are,well,  theory's.

what makes one think that anyone with a certain capability of intelligence can't look at this and say "well, you guys are dreaming up b.s." and descending a legitimate science in to fiction.

there is no comparison to Einstien, he remained practical. or Tesla (an experimental engineer)- more my hero, and i'm sure he could understand the science of physics. as do i. and i'm no Tesla.

 

tits, congrats on the level of study,hopefully you can produce concrete proposals on how the universe operates. :lurk:

 

so far, i have been watching this guy's lectures, after watching the documentary's on this topic by brian greene and michio kaku.  started as some boring stuff to sleep to, then it got me thinking....

and for the guys who can't tolerate this, something a little more entertaining and explanetory...

I think you clowns should spend less time talking about which physics is better and more time figuring out how to teleport me places

didn't a lot of those guys go into the stock market in the last 20 years, applied their craft to make a killing?

I remember watching a poker special, i think it may have been Poker after dark, a couple years back and there was this famous Physics guy from Brown who ended up looking kind of sad because he admitted he wished he went into hedge funds like his colleges did to make tons of money.
