Did you see the program? Seriously underhanded journalism. Scientologists are just morons, the people who make Panorama are manipulative, obnoxious and underhanded for the sake of viewing figures. Straight out of the Daily Mail school of journalism. Fucking disgusting.

I couldn't watch the program, but from what I have read, the Church of Scientology have far, far greater success in the field of obnoxious manipulation than Panorama. Seriously. Panorama is not a multi-million $ company.

I find it rather disturbing that you get more worked up about sensationalist journalism than Scientology...

well if they aren't well off then they are even more stupid to give money over! If they are retarded enough to be interested in what scientologists have got to say then they don't deserve to keep their money!

Nice....

From the Time article :
Quote
Harriet Baker learned the hard way about Scientology's business of selling religion. When Baker, 73, lost her husband to cancer, a Scientologist turned up at her Los Angeles home peddling a $1,300 auditing package to cure her grief. Some $15,000 later, the Scientologists discovered that her house was debt free. They arranged a $45,000 mortgage, which they pressured her to tap for more auditing until Baker's children helped their mother snap out of her daze. Last June, Baker demanded a $27,000 refund for unused services, prompting two cult members to show up at her door unannounced with an E-meter to interrogate her. Baker never got the money and, financially strapped, was forced to sell her house in September.

If you trawl the web a bit you'll find plenty of similar stories..... I think it's absolutely outrageous, it makes me mad - taking everything they can get from people who need help the most. And if you think this woman deserved to lose her money and her home because she was grieving and not thinking straight, then I'm sorry but you're just fucked up.......

I was just wondering about the scale of the big blue bits round the edge.
Bearing in mind its a subatomic partical accelerator I thought it might be tiny.

the detector is about 15m wide, 30m long - size of a small church... it's so big because the particles passing through it have such high energy - we measure their momentum by making them curve in a magnetic field. so even with a ferking strong magnet (4Tesla) you need a big detector to measure how curved the track is...  Two Thumbs
109  General / The Forum / Re: Me, Roadkill and Fraz's experiment on: May 14, 2007, 15:41:38
there is position, energy, and momentum resolution that you could potentially be talking about.

and time!

that's what i was on about above - tracks are reconstructed in time as well as space... associating signals from the outer detector with the collision that caused them is a big pain in the ass...
110  General / The Forum / Re: Me, Roadkill and Fraz's experiment on: May 14, 2007, 14:39:31
It's a representation of a reconstructed event passing through the detector... so roughly it represents the ~25 nano-seconds of time after the collision at the centre of the detector that generates the event.

Tut Tut   gotta remember the time of flight...


Eh?  Yes, in 25 nano-seconds a particle close to the speed of light can travel ~7.5 m,  which is ~enough for it to pass through the detector.  I'm including time of flight.  It's only an estimate, it's not like I made the image or anything...

i'm just saying it's not a snapshot in time...
111  General / The Forum / Re: BBC v Scientologists / bbc reporter on: May 14, 2007, 13:36:06
didn't it all start as a bet between friends "who can make ppl beleive in a new religion first" - that's what I heard but it's pretty obvious all it's for is to milk all the cash out of retarded celebrities etc. Fair play on that part, if I could convince TOm cruise to spend all his money on me in exchange for some religious "secrets" I'd do it!

Sadly, I think they make most of their $$$ out of ordinary people who really can't afford it...

I read this article yesterday and ended up doing some web trawling. My conclusion is that the Church of Scientology is fcuking dark and nasty... Total tragedy that so many people are caught up in it...

This is really common, according to a mate of mine who was a house officer in casualty... He said they often had blokes come in on a Sunday with gashes on their foreheads, or concussion. They'd been out the night before, got lathered, then woke up with a huge hangover and a full bladder. They go for a piss and their bladder shrinks, which makes their blood pressure drop, so and they pass out - cracking their bonces on the cistern....

There were crews from BBC Bristol and HTV News. I'm sure the beeb will cut the drivel that I spouted - the interviewer didn't actually ask me any questions.... But I might be on HTV, I dunno. I've no idea when or if they might broadcast the piece either; it could stay on the shelf for a while apparently.

121  General / The Forum / Re: My experiment in the Grauniad and the BBC on: May 09, 2007, 13:04:46
in this article they wrote... http://www.bbc.co.uk/dna/h2g2/A851429

"Higgs boson is a hypothetical particle, which if it exists has so far evaded detection"

wait wait... stop me if i'm wrong here. The particle is so far... as it stands... entirely hypothetical. Meaning no one really knows if its true or not. And so far... it has evaded detection. Meaning we couldn't find it....

Now. Call me a pessimist here... but isn't spending 1.6 billion pounds on a large magnet to detect a hypothetical (yet ammusingly named) particle a little bit on the risky side?

what if... and this may cause huge murmuring waves of upset in the beard clad world of scientists... but what if... the particle doesn't actually exist?

blimey, what an elloborate fuk up that would have been!

In my opinion, it would be more interesting if we found the Higgs doesn't exist, but something else does.

If all this experiment could do was detect a Higgs boson, it would indeed be a complete waste of time and money, and we wouldn't be building it. But is capable of a LOT more than just that. There are extremely strong, and very deep, arguments (that I don't have time to go into right now) that suggest undiscovered fundamental particles must exist at masses slightly higher than the ones we've been able to probe so far. But it's impossible to be specific about the properties of these undiscovered particles, how they interact, how many there are, how heavy they are.... So that is what we're *really* interested in looking for. Detecting the Higgs, if it exists, is just one small part of the physics we can do with these machines... I was back in Bristol last week to give some lectures on some of the other things we're looking for.....

if you can prove to me this then i shall present you with the simple facts of the universe which works on harmonic principles and the golden ratio rule of mathematics. this inadvertently leads us to to the fact that there is only energy in our universe and other universes as well.
for the fact that if 2 branes collide in the 11th dimension that creates a universe so that takes god out of the picture for creating our universe for a start off! and also that a closed loop version of gravitons would mean they can travel through universes and also dimensions which would mean that gravitons come and go as they please through any dimension or sub dimension.

you do know that branes, extra dimensions, gravitons and strings were all just made up by theoretical physicists with time on their hands... don't you?

and? its better than thinking some holy ghost came down! what twat wrote the first bible? he must have had nuff time on his hands to come up with that bunch of complete bullshit lol

Fair enough.... But you seemed to be talking about it like it was all true - which it's not.

The only difference between m-theory and the holy spirit, for example, is that m-theory is described in mathematical terms... And because it's mathematical, and was invented by 'scientists', people seem to take it seriously. Which is a joke, imho. Seems to me that string theory is just the new religion - it's nothing but conjecture, and it can't be tested, but loads of people totally believe in it. Just like God. I haven't read it yet, but 'The Trouble with Physics' by Lee Smolin covers all this in some detail apparently, and caused a lot of controversy....

126  General / The Forum / Re: Ecstacy - Still a major part of the underground dance scene ? on: May 04, 2007, 15:57:07
Everyone knows about the 'ecstasy honeymoon' that the UK had back in the late 80's / early 90's. The halcyon days where people of all classes, races, etc boshed clean pills the size of dinnerplates and danced with a big fat smile on their face, together as one, for days on end without a care in the world, etc. The music around at that time understandably reflected this, with an emphasis of lush strings, positive vocal samples and just general niceness all round.

In 2007 you'd struggle to find any influence of ecstasy in the myriad of underground dance scenes.
The modus operandi for most underground dance genres, by and large, is dark, moody, bass-heavy music designed to make you sweat and not put your hands in the air, reach for the lasers or any other cliche you might want to use.

Admittedly, it's nearly 20 years since those infamous early days of the rave scene, but as ecstasy is still taken in the large quantities that it is, by thousands of people week-in, week-out, how come it's influence is barely detectable in the music produced today ?

to me this sounds like quite a cliched image of scenes where boshing pills is/was prevalent - either back in the day, or more recently. as to the question of whether pills are part of underground dance scene these days, that completely depends on what you think is underground and what isn't. either way, pills are still pretty popular - certainly at the techno nights round my endz.

ps - if you think pills had no influence on dubstep, you should have met skream before he was famous   ;-)

Obviously this isnt everyone, especially the people who went to private school who were from london i have met at uni havent reallly been posh actually, or at least didnt come accross like that...

Script

i'd never met anyone who went to a private school til i went to uni, and was quite surprised when i did. there were plenty of stuck up twats, but there were just as many twats at the local comp i had been to. the only difference was the ones at uni had more money (tara palmer-tomkinson, jemima khan and tamara beckwith were all at bristol uni at the same time as me - definitely all in the twat category). but i met plenty of extremely sound people who'd had a private education.

anyway, i've never though where someone went to school is at all relevant - no-one chooses their parents, after all....

ps - uni isn't necessarily the same as a private education; i lived off grants and loans the whole time. admittedly its more difficult now, but the majority of students are paying for it themselves, not getting handouts from daddy....
