Why Are We Made of Matter?

modmans2ndcoming Re:Matter, anti-matter... (393 comments)

I believe it was a hypothesis that the universe began with symmetric amounts of matter and anti-matter. The recent BICEP2 results should provide a method for us to inquire about that idea either directly or through constraints by tossing out many hypothesizes related to quantum gravity and the nature of the early universe.

Why Are We Made of Matter?

modmans2ndcoming Re:Something From Nothing. (393 comments)

Well....there is your problem....asking (pure) astronomy grads a question about physics is like asking a (pure) physics grads questions about math. Sure, they know the stuff they need to know to do their work but they can't answer the deeper "why" questions related to the field.

Don't Help Your Kids With Their Homework

modmans2ndcoming Re:Um, right. (278 comments)

I don't know if that is Common Core's fault. Idiots implement the standards and think they make it easier for kids.The high standards are good, the poor implimentation in many districts is not.

NASA-Funded Study Investigates Collapse of Industrial Civilization

modmans2ndcoming Re:The foundations (401 comments)

Your obvious parody of the foundation series may not be far off. I am sure there will be a group of highly educated folk who find a place with decent sustainable resources and set up a society based on sustainability and preservation of human knowledge. Then once the chaos consumes existing civilizations it will be able to expand and grow to dominate the world once again...minus the psychologists that lean to use psychic powers of the mind.

The Higgs Boson Re-Explained By the Mick Jagger of Physics

modmans2ndcoming Re: Still not quite correct. (94 comments)

Umm.... If protons, neutrons and electrons all get their mass from particles that in turn get their mass from the Higgs field then the protron, neutron and electron get their mass from the Higgs field by the transitive property.

How Can Nintendo Recover?

modmans2ndcoming Re:Erm, the 3DS (559 comments)

What are you talking about? The GG was perfectly sized to be portable. I wish I knew what happened to mine. I would love to play me some sonic (pretty much the game that the GG was designed around)

modmans2ndcoming (929661) writes "This guy has written a very good step-by-step How-To on setting up Postfix to use gmail as a smarthost. Those of us who have an evil ISP blocking port 25 can have the goodness of a home e-mail server with out paying out the butt for traditional smart hosting. It is written for those who use Ubuntu. He also links to a guy who wrote a similar article for those who like to compile their software."
