    [–] Do you worst! Aelinsaar 1 points ago in RoastMe

    That haircut. That's the worst thing anyone could do to you, and you did it to yourself. I can only imagine all of the terrible things about you which are beyond your control.

    [–] roast me again? Aelinsaar 1 points ago in RoastMe

    ...What this shit again?

    [–] Roast me Aelinsaar 1 points ago in RoastMe

    No one in your life really loves you or gives a shit about you; if they did you would not have that haircut, and be wearing that fucking sweater-vest.

    [–] I think there's a lot of material for you to work with, now do it Aelinsaar 2 points ago in RoastMe

    You look like Hitler just told you to get the fuck out of the bunker, and now you're going to cry.

    [–] You can't get on my level... but try Aelinsaar 2 points ago in RoastMe

    Cheap car... cheap gun... cheap shades... unfinished garage.

    You're not even a trust-fund kid, you're just spending what little money you have unwisely.

    [–] Crispy please :) Aelinsaar 1 points ago in RoastMe

    I'll just let future-you do the hating when you look back on this photo and wish yourself actual, physical harm.

    To me, you're just another teenage fuckboy who knows they're a fuckboy, but still can't find anything else within themselves to offer a world that was tired of their bullshit years ago.

    [–] My friend thinks you're all weak roasters. Prove her wrong. Aelinsaar 1 points ago in RoastMe

    I kept wiping my monitor and then I realized oh no... that's just your skin.

    [–] ELI5: Why are Saturn's rings (and other planets) located at the center of the planet rather than closer to the top or bottom? Aelinsaar 1 points ago in explainlikeimfive

    Just to the last bit of what you're saying, there are 'shepherd moon's in and around the rings, and the whole thing is the result of complicated orbital resonance.

    [–] Could a Dwarf Planet the size of Ganymede or Titan have a surface gravity very comparable to that of the Earth (maybe within 10% of Earth's Gravity...8.825 m/s² to 10.787 m/s² as the range)? Aelinsaar 1 points ago in AskScienceDiscussion

    I'm not asking how elements heavier than Li came to be, I'm asking about a realistic physical process which produces a star system with Titan-sized, heavy-metal planet. Your proto-star would produce terrestrial planets, not magical lumps of nearly pure heavy metals. For it to crank out Earth-massed ingots would imply that it's far too metallic to be a star in any case.

    Maybe your thing could work if it produced some kind of exotic gas giant, which then lost its atmosphere through some event. The problem however, is that the core would be much larger and more massive than Earth, not smaller like Titan.

    [–] 1-Year-Old Staten Island Girl Clinging to Life After Possible Methadone Overdose Aelinsaar 1 points ago in news

    Methadone is not infrequently available as a liquid form, and there is also an illicit trade in it. I wouldn't be shocked if the parents turn out to be mixing it with benzodiazepines, and the little girl "found the candy/juice" as the old and awful meme goes.

    [–] Police warning after reports of Manchester Arena explosion Aelinsaar 1 points ago in news

    From Manchester Police via BBC: 19 confirmed dead 50 injured, terrorist incident.

    [–] ELI5: If you were to eat a poisonous spider (say a black widow) without it biting you, would you still be poisoned? Aelinsaar 1 points ago in explainlikeimfive

    No, although, if you had a cut or bleeding gums, or any direct path to your bloodstream along the route to your stomach... you would be.

    In fact, a black widow is venomous and not poisonous.

    Toxins: Stuff that makes you sick, produced by an organism (often a metabolic byproduct).

    Poisons: Toxins which make you sick if you eat or drink them.

    Venom: Toxins which make you sick if they're delivered via injection (bites, stings, etc.)

    [–] Nicki Minaj Quietly Kept Sending Funds To An Indian Village, Today It's Fully Developed Aelinsaar 1 points ago in UpliftingNews

    Well... she could be a really good person getting recognition, or... she might have hired a new PR firm.

    Oh I see... Hmmm... it would need to be extraordinarily dense; on average about 50 times denser than Earth, and that just wouldn't form in that way. If you imagine a gas giant losing everything other than its rocky or metallic core, then maybe you could start to approach that kind of density? The problem though, is that you'd have a massive planet, much larger than Earth, not much smaller.

    I can't think of a natural physical process which would lean to moon-sized, hyper-dense objects Earth-like gravity.

    [–] Why are virtual particles considered to be "not real"? Aelinsaar 1 points ago in AskScienceDiscussion

    IMO one of the best and most accessible explanations can be found here:

    The term “virtual particle” is an endlessly confusing and confused subject for the layperson, and even for the non-expert scientist. I have read many books for laypeople (yes, I was a layperson once myself, and I remember, at the age of 16, reading about this stuff) and all of them talk about virtual particles and not one of them has ever made any sense to me. So I am going to try a different approach in explaining it to you.

    The best way to approach this concept, I believe, is to forget you ever saw the word “particle” in the term. A virtual particle is not a particle at all. It refers precisely to a disturbance in a field that is not a particle. A particle is a nice, regular ripple in a field, one that can travel smoothly and effortlessly through space, like a clear tone of a bell moving through the air. A “virtual particle”, generally, is a disturbance in a field that will never be found on its own, but instead is something that is caused by the presence of other particles, often of other fields.

    Analogy time (and a very close one mathematically); think about a child’s swing. If you give it a shove and let it go, it will swing back and forth with a time period that is always the same, no matter how hard was the initial shove you gave it. This is the natural motion of the swing. Now compare that regular, smooth, constant back-and-forth motion to what would happen if you started giving the swing a shove many times during each of its back and forth swings. Well, the swing would start jiggling around all over the place, in a very unnatural motion, and it would not swing smoothly at all. The poor child on the swing would be furious at you, as you’d be making his or her ride very uncomfortable. This unpleasant jiggling motion — this disturbance of the swing — is different from the swing’s natural and preferred back-and-forth regular motion just as a “virtual particle” disturbance is different from a real particle. If something makes a real particle, that particle can go off on its own across space. If something makes a disturbance, that disturbance will die away, or break apart, once its cause is gone. So it’s not like a particle at all, and I wish we didn’t call it that.

    The color of Gold is another easy-to-grasp example of exactly what you're describing.

    ...It took you time to come up with that?

    Be ashamed.

    [–] Emergency services rush to Manchester Arena after 2 explosions Aelinsaar 5 points ago * (lasted edited an hour ago) in news

    Keep in mind that's the Mirror... which is about as reliable as The National Enquirer.

    Edit: Jesus... I guess they got it right this time.
