Did anybody watch, Sports Show with Norm MacDonald last night?

He's one of my favorite comedians and I've seen him live a few times.

AHL announces schedule modification plan
April 13, 2011

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. The American Hockey League announced today that its Board of Governors has approved a schedule modification plan beginning with the 2011-12 season.

Under the plan, the regular-season playing schedule will be reduced to 76 games; the AHL playing calendar will be extended by one week; all sequences in which teams play four games in five nights will be eliminated; and the first round of the Calder Cup Playoffs will be reduced to a best-of-five series

Outside of a vacuum there are theories of refraction, absorption/emission delays, etc... None of which I know enough about.
Interesting conversation between you and Giroux, which stuck out for me because I've been trying to better educate myself on the Big Bang Theory (the scientific theory, not the show) and the physics/math of it all, as part of my Lent project of reading Genesis 1 (the Bible book, not Phil Collins) and the compare/contrast with science. I'm still trying to wrap my brain around Planck length / Planck time and the delay in the appearance of the physical laws of the universe.

Incidentally, not that I expected anyone to notice, but I took some time away while my mother-in-law passed away (funeral on Saturday). And in the meantime, I checked myself into hospital with a suspected heart attack. It turned out to be a panic attack, I am both relieved and embarrassed to say. That was about the most scared I've been in my life, and it's frightening how I had all the classic symptoms: chest heaviness, numbness in hands/feet, lightheadedness, trouble breathing.

I have a very significant family history of heart problems, so it's always on my mind.

But enough about me ...

"A Brief History of Time" and Brian Greene's first book on string theory are both damned good reads.


Can anybody enlighten me about this: Is it possible that there are forces and particles at work in the universe that we are unaware of/can't directly observe because they operate in one of the extra dimensions, instead of the 4 that humans exist in?

edit: Damn, Bernie. Well, panic attack beats the hell out of a heart attack.

So according to the Union's Sons of Ben President, Flyers may be inquiring to use their goal song for Flyers games, possibly with it replacing Bro Hymn. (http://www.the700level.com/2011/04/d....html#comments)

Thoughts? I can't whether I like it or think it's too Chelsea Dagger.

Technically that is the whole dark matter debate.

This links to the hypothetical WIMPS (Weakly interacting massive particles), which are assumed not to react to neither electromagnetism, nor "strong" nuclear force, so we cannot directly observe them like you were asking.

Is it possible. Yes. I also believe the hypothesis is based upon 4 dimensional space, and doesn't rely on more dimensions. They are actually doing test to try and "capture" or find these particles.

Are there possibly more dimensions, and subsequently other particles interacting even beyond WIMPS? Well definitely a possibility.

You should go youtube some Carl Sagan videos.

Planck length/time are pretty dependent on which physical theory your talking about.

In most cases it just refers to the smallest length/time one can actually measure.

Plank length = shortest measurable distance, and Plank time is how long it takes a photon (traveling at c) to travel across a plank length.

As you go deeper into math you realize the dependence of "change", which is why we focus on differentiation or summation (integrals included). If we cannot measure a change in the system, we have no idea what is affecting what, or if anything is happening at all.

Thus the Plank length/time are our boundaries of measuring change.

Edit: My condolences, and I hope everything is alright with you health right now.

I was not a very good scholar of either calculus or physics, so I've got to take this a bite-sized morsel at a time. Just thinking of differential and integral equations makes my head start to hurt. Very interesting, though, the controversies and variant hypotheses surrounding the Big Bang Theory. And I loved watching Cosmos. "Billions and billions of stars."

Thanks, Kimi and Beef, for your kind words. I felt pretty stupid once the ER doc said they had ruled out a heart cause of my symptoms, but that was pretty scary. And my dad had been a stubborn old cuss about not going to the hospital, even after about 2 hours of chest pain during one episode, that I vowed not to be the same. Plus, I work in medical communication which means I know just enough medicine to be a hypochondriac.

I would suggest watching a mini series called "through the Wromhole" that was made recently and is narrated by Morgan Freeman. It's in the vein of Cosmos, but with updated science, and perhaps minus Sagan's child-like enthusiasm for discovery.

I don't know, Giroux. For me, astrophysics will always be dressed in a tweed jacket and turtleneck. Thanks for your recommendation.
