The holiday hangout will go online tomorrow! If there's anything in the regular subforums that you're going to want to access over the holidays, copy it now while it's still accessible.
Don't like the snow? You can make a bookmark with the following text instead of a url: javascript:snowStorm.toggleSnow(). Clicking it will toggle the snow on and off.
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Is science badass? The data is positive.

Science is pretty badass.

The Large Hadron Collider? Badass.

Makin' pluripotent stem cells from adult skin cells? Badass.

Controlling a robot with your brain? Pretty wicked, son

I did some science a few weeks ago. It was kind of alright.

Who else thinks science is badass?

Or does it totally suck?

Ah the double slit experiment, this guy seems to favour the copenhagen interpretation which i was taught (that the observer causes the collapse into one way for the electron to behave), what is now gaining popularity and i've only done a tiny but of reading on (and i think i prefer) is the many worlds interpretation which is basically that the electron does go through both slits but basically the universe (yes the whole universe) splits so that both events can occur in different universes, thus there are an infinite number of universes and whenever you do anything every other possible reality exists in a different universe.

I got some youtube videos because i'm such a nice guy

Radtastic, even. Wiki says you can get them as scars if you get hit by lightning, which would also be awesome.
