    It just isn't offside. I've got no faith at all in the integrity in this league anymore.

    It shouldn't be allowed to be in the rules as it is written. They're relying on an individual to decide where the line is drawn based on their interpretation of the situation. There's no black and white involved, it's a terrible grey area that needs removing from the incompetent buffoons who have to do it.

    Not quite sure where to put this but does the coverage of Prince Philip's death need to be on every possible BBC TV and Radio station?


    Surely BBC One and the News channel can simulcast and BBC Two run to a fairly normal schedule? They are showing the exact same thing currently.

    It shouldn't be on their main channels full stop. BBC have a dedicated news channel exactly for it. 


    It's old people's fault. They'd flip their zimmers if they moved it as they have no idea how to find the news channel. 

  3. Einstein showed very nicely how everything is relative, and you can't describe anything without a specific reference frame. Only light ignores that by being identical for every observer. 


    As for a curved spacetime model for legrange points, I'd assume it'd look something like a tiny flat bit surrounded by space curving down and away on all sides. 


    Though I had read a while back on Quora (and as such can't remember the details) that curved space is just a clumsy metaphor for what it actually going on.

    Anybody give Tiger Roll any kind of chance today? Seemingly has no hope but still priced at 7's?


    Pretty skint so having a tenner on the 2:50 and hope it covers my weekend lol

    He's up against younger and quicker horses at a shorter trip than his Cheltenham win. Needs a very steady pace to stand a chance IMO.

  5. There have always been gaps in the Standard Model and we knew it wasn't the whole story. The LHC was specifically designed to find these heavier, more energetic fundamental particles. Hopefully this muon is the next step. 


    I'd been reading about Loop Quantum Gravity recently, as a quantum understanding of gravity is what we really need to develop a unified theory. That  sounds really interesting as Einsteins equations pop right out of it from the maths apparently. Ironically string theory looks a busted flush IMO (suck it Sheldon). 


    I also read an article last week that suggests Dark Energy is actually a magnetic force originating from Dark Matter particles. Their simulations show the universe expanding in exactly the same way without Dark Energy.
