And even though photons 1 and 4 never coexist, the measurements show that their polarizations still end up entangled. Eisenberg emphasizes that even though in relativity, time measured differently by observers traveling at different speeds, no observer would ever see the two photons as coexisting.
Sorry, I don't have the time to RTFA, but it seems strange to talk about entangled photons that don't exist at the "same time" when SR say simultaneity is relative. While they might not exist at the same time in one reference frame, you'd think there's bound to be one in which they do.
Drink diet soda, you won't get fat.
Yeah - no. If you're the type of person who has to drink some crappy-tasting version of a a beverage so that you can have something sweet 24/7 instead of practicing *gasp* moderation, then I don't care how few calories are in that can. Eventually you're going to eat your way to a lard-ass in other ways.
Best to give up soda completely or have the real stuff much much less. Me, I'll have a 12 ounce real soda once a week (if that) and it tastes like a rare, tasty treat rather than some foul, knock-off necessity.
No, it's like how convicted pedophiles are not allowed to live or hang out near schools.
Obviously one has to draw a line somewhere, but comparing a computer to food is obviously not a rational comparison.
(And FYI, the analogy would be "People accused of lock picking are not allowed to have lockpicks". Which should be obvious.)
First off, £350 is probably not particularly out of line for the cost to process the records. If we were talking £350000 pounds, yeah, that would look like an attempt at censorship. But there's nothing pecular about £350. Secondly, if anyone in the media had felt it was even remotely newsworthy, they would have paid it. The media pays processing costs for records all the time. All that this means is that most news agencies consider Warg a non-story.
Warg's restrictions are special specifically because the crime his charged with is hacking. Banning a graphing calculator is probably overreach, but it's understandable why they'd want to keep him away from computers.
Sort of like the last leak, the "Kissinger Cables", that were publicly accessible data that journalists and historians have been making use of for years, which he downloaded, reformatted, and set on the Wikileaks site.
New slogan suggestion: Wikileaks: We Open Governments (by taking the data they've already released, running it through a couple python scripts, putting it on our site, and calling it something new)
Haven't watched Idiocracy, have you?
Still, Hawking was the Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at Cambridge for a long time, so he is highly intelligent. I don't think of him as that great of a communicator, honestly.
I could rattle off 50 physicists from the last century that were more influential.
How many of those 50 are still living?
Scenario five: you hit it off, you don't rush things, you don't kill the pre-makeout mood, you check while putting on the condom... and it's positive, you two are second cousins twice removed or something
Not to ruin the joke or anything, but if the second cousins are twice removed then they're typically off by a couple generations. The age discrepancy would be awkward enough.
Kinda like the person who taught me about the reel-change indicators on film at the movie theatres - I see it, and my whole body tenses up waiting for the change. I wish I had never known about it.
