Submission + - Ask Slashdot: Can you M Theory with the Standard Model 3x3x3?

genfail writes: Hey I was thinking, I think you can unify M Theory with the Standard Model if you we have 3 dimensions space, 3 time and 3 for gravity. 3x3x3
Nth dimensional time fixes the weird artifacts you see in the standard model that create things like dark matter to explain angular momentum of galaxies is even across the disk.
E=MC2 when taken as a whole also implies that time is a variable relative to mass, the more massive something is the slower time around it moves for the same reason that time slows down at the speed of light.
When taken into consideration it becomes apparent that angular momentum is not caused by mass that can't be seen but by the fact that time moves more slowly around a super-massive black hole at the middle causing the appearance of objects in the middle orbiting differently. So time and gravity both are being moved in three dimensions each.
What do you guys think?

Comment The Standard Model is obviously wrong (Score 2) 393

I've always been suspicious of the Standard Model's insistence that the big bang consisted of nearly equal parts matter and antimatter. The assumptions made by observation of certain particle collisions need to be reevaluated. Much of this seems to because of a belief that time is single dimensional and that mass has no effect on the flow of time, although if you really look at relativity and quantum phenomenon it is obvious that neither of these is the case. Instead we invent the artifacts of dark matter and dark energy to explain away inconsistencies that these assumptions make.

This makes sense considering the extent of data collection in what appears to be a leak from a Verizon employee on all caller data from all calls made in the US. Since we can assume that all carriers have received similar secret orders to turn over all customer data they would need to expand their data processing capability.

Submission + - Anonymous reveals Haditha massacre emails (rt.com)

An anonymous reader writes: Anonymous have unveiled their second major release for this week’s installment of FuckFBIFriday. Their target this time around is Frank Wuterich, the US Marine that admitted to killing Iraqi civilians — and received no jail time for his crime.

Early Friday afternoon, members of the loose-knit online collective Anonymous began circulating news that the website for Puckett and Faraj, the high-profile attorneys that represented Sgt. Frank Wuterich in his recent trial, had been hacked. Wuterich admitted to leading Marines into two civilian homes in Waditha, Iraq in 2005, massacring 24 civilians including women, children and an elderly man confined to a wheelchair.

In response, hacktivists with Anonymous have uncovered gigabytes worth of correspondence from Sgt. Wuterich’s attorneys and affiliated parties.

Some are mobsters. When you look at how false antivirus malware proliferates and fleeces the unsuspecting public and even holds their computer for ransom. You can't help but see similarity in how they operate in function and philosophy to organized crime. They will undoubtedly push this through with this in mind. Of course without limits on who is eligible every 12 year old with a LOIC download could find themselves with punishments far in excess of their crimes. Make no mistake many who support this intend to use this on the civil dissidents of anonymous every bit as much as cyber gangs of card cloners or bank hackers. To the detriment of liberty for us all.

It's hard for me to image hating anyone more then BofA and AT&T. IMO this probably has something to do with their perverse campaign to always look for ways around any privacy wishes their users may have and their blatant attempts to circumvent the privacy settings the users have already set.

Submission + - High School TED Class thanked by Chris Anderson (mvschool.com)

An anonymous reader writes: An independent school in Dayton, OH has created a class around the videos and philosophy of the TED conferences that has reached a global audience itself. Students in the class not only discuss and dissect selected presentations — this year's group actually created their own response videos in a YouTube channel set up by their teacher. Chris Anderson, owner and curator of TED, even directly responded to the class' thank yous in a personal and touching off-the-cuff video.

Submission + - Last surviving ENIAC programmer has died. (nytimes.com)

fatherjoecode writes: "Jean Bartik passed away on 4 April 2011. She "was the last surviving member of the group of women who programmed the Eniac, ..., which is credited as the first all-electronic digital computer". For must of my life I was mistaken in the belief that the films of the woman who turned the dials of ENIAC were following programming instructions from someone else. It turns these women were the programmers and their contributions went unrecognized for many decades."

Submission + - 8 Acquisitions That Changed the Face of Computing

adeelarshad82 writes: Microsoft's $8.5 billion acquisition of Skype is easily the biggest in terms of dollar value in the software giant's storied history. While early opinions aren't exactly encouraging, only time will tell what the acquisition will mean for two. Needless to say that there have been plenty of cases where big acquisitions never live up to their initial billing, however this could easily turn into one of the few which actually changed the face of computing as we know it, such as Microsoft's acquisition of 86-DOS from SCP in 1981.
