@KyleKanos Welcome to...Physics? Lol, is that supposed to be Physics SE?
 
@0celo7 That's auto-review comments talking
 
@KyleKanos Is this a script? I'm allergic to CS.
 
CS?
Computer Science?
 
Yes
 
But yes, it's an add-on to Firefox or Chrome
 
2:18 AM
ooh
And Opera apparently
 
I told you that there were robots here.
 
I'm not a robot
But I employ androids
 
Tell that to the captcha.
 
@KyleKanos I'm computer retarded. I installed the extension and enabled it, nothing is happening.
 
did you restart the webbrowser?
 
2:22 AM
Just did. (Not that dumb.)
 
Okay, open up a comment & look for the blue-text "auto"
(On main, doesn't work here)
 
Ahhh
 
I don't use scripts though I am captchta'd at least 3 times a day.
 
Does this have the "this is a HW question" thingies?
 
Therefore I am most likely a robot.
 
2:24 AM
@Icosahedron Shouldn't you be studying physics?
Shoo
 
@0celo7 You can add it in
Double click the textbox and add the following:

Double click which textbox? The standard comment one?
 
Actually, it's the import/export text
at the bottom of the window
 
2:26 AM
@Icosahedron You get chat privileges when you can tell me where the poles in the propagator are and why the graviton has spin 2.
 
I accept, talking in 5 months then.
Though I can at least... spectate!
 
@Icosahedron Go ahead, I permit talking for this purpose. Whoops, read that as speculate.
@KyleKanos I'm no longer retarded.
@Icosahedron If your speculations are good enough, I will lift the ban.
 
@KyleKanos Got it on my own.
 
Well too bad, I made a gimp'd image for you
 
2:30 AM
<3
Imgur?
Why don't you have an instant image service?
 
Instant image service?
 
You have a macro that allows you to take a screenshot, and the URL is pasted to your clipboard.
 
I see
 
I use Gyazo, which admittedly works much better on Windows than OSX.
 
I like clicking buttons
And getting angry at the computer when it doesn't work
 
2:33 AM
i.e. for me it's a 15 second image service.
Well thanks for the plugin.
@Icosahedron Do you have any idea how to answer my query? Should I just tell you?
 
3:01 AM
Tell me.
 
3:26 AM
@0celo7 Where the poles in the propagator are?
Never heard of this...
must be #justtheQFTthings

Anyone here?
Can anyone help me with a question?

Q: Should tags centripetal-force and centrifugal-force be linked?

Mr. BoyThe tags centripetal-force and centrifugal-force are currently separate tags. Should they be linked?

@NeuroFuzzy Don't take him too seriously, I recall him not knowing what the propagator really was a few weeks back ;)

@Danu: Now what about that funny anecdote you promised me? ;)
@Icosahedron 1. It's viXra 2. It's not teXed. 3. It sounds like numerology -> Very high probability of being nonsense.
 
3:10 PM
@Icosahedron Perhaps you're unaware of it thus far, but viXra is not something you should put a lot of trust in. If I wrote a brilliant paper on the expected observations in the CMB from the existence of dark matter during inflation and posted it on arXiv, it might be lauded. If I then posted that same paper on viXra, it would then instantly lose most of its credibility.
As I said months ago. Finding a good paper on viXra is like finding a delicious piece of chocolate cake in a pile of used diapers at the dump. Sure it's chocolate cake, but when found among garbage, it becomes garbage. Would you eat that cake? No, doesn't matter that nothing got on it, you found it with used diapers. Delicious or no, nobody would eat it.
Or as Seinfeld put it, "adjacent to refuse is refuse"
Exact quote:

@vzn I know full well that arXiv has crackpots. arXiv is generally chocolate cake with a rare piece of used toilet paper. viXra is generally used toilet paper with a rare piece of cake. Which do you want to get your dessert from?
 
3:39 PM
@Danu noice b8 m8
@NeuroFuzzy @Icosahedron The simple propagator has a pole at the 4-momentum associated with the mass of the physical particle it describes. The corrected propagator has poles at momenta corresponding to masses of all multi-particle states. cf. Källen-Lehmann representation.
 
@0celo7 Källén
 
@ACuriousMind Gimme a break, I'm at lunch
 
Don't you already have a break if you're at lunch? :P
 
@Icosahedron As for the second one, you can examine the rotational properties of gravitational waves.
 
4:45 PM
@ACuriousMind Now that I'm in calculus, I could use that break :P
 
5:05 PM
@ACuriousMind My practice calc AP test is perfect except for one question where I forgot how to do a Riemann sum, arithmetic average, mean value integral and read, all in quick succession.
 
@0celo7 Uh...am I supposed to congratulate or to commiserate? :D
Forgetting to read is a surprisingly easy thing to do, anyway
 
I read velocity when it said speed.
Also, I thought the average of a and b is (1/2)(b-a).
 
Oh, you wouldn't have had that problem in German, we don't have different words for velocity and speed :P
 
Yeah, I can only think of geschwindigkeit. Not sure about spelling.
 
You've got the correct word and correct spelling ;)
 
5:11 PM
Nope. Capitalization.
 
Oh...almost no one capitalizes when chatting (it drives me nuts :D)
 
I noticed yesterday that BLT smells like mothballs. Fun fact: not all Springer books smell the same.
