Do you have questions concerning the wide world of science and nowhere to direct these queries? Well, I'm here to help! Feel free to ask me any question and I'll respond in the order in which I care to. If your question does not get a reply, please try to rephrase it in a less moronic manner.

How come the world hasn't collapsed from the Hadron Collider yet?

They haven't turned it on yet. Or whatever you call it.

A woodchuck would chuck all the wood a woodchuck could chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood.

Scientist, I have two questions:

1. Is there any possibility that California, instead of sinking into the ocean, could float away to be its own continent?

2. I read somewhere on the internet that the theory about plate tectonics and continental drift is false and that the earth is actually expanding like a balloon, what do you think about that?

The Jews ruined it for everyone.

No.

Roughly 10 gallons.

1. Once the entire population of California gets gay married, the state will be drowned in a tidal wave of santorum (http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=santorum), which will eventually harden and trap all the residents inside like insects trapped in amber.

2. I'm ok with it if you are.

I remember that the last time any course was called simply 'science' was in seventh grade.

Basically, Scientist, I'm asking if you're twelve.

Creationism or evolution?

That's a matter for the individual states to decide. I would advise Tennessee to avoid choosing evolution.

Doesn't Tennessee disprove both the theory of Evolution and Inteligent Design at the same time?

Is misregulation of the Wnt signaling pathway in the post-saccular stage fgf8 deficient embryonic mouse lung a direct result of the lack of fgf8 or a secondary result caused by another phenomenon such as improper establishment of extracellular matrix proteins?

Thanks for the prompt response.

Scientist,

Unlike normal people, scientists lack discrimination and hierarchies. All are equal in the world of science. Of course, ethnic cleansing is necessary to maintain this balance.

At this time, Tennessee is only an unlikely hypothesis, but if it ends up proving true, it could drastically redefine the way we look at the world.

If you could point me to the Wikipedia entry that addresses your issue, I would be glad to respond to your inquiry in full.

No, this isn't true. I'm a Computer Science student, and we share a building with the Food Science people. The Physicist and Chemists are in the next building, and they mock us as pretendy sciences. You'd think this would unite us, but really, it drives us apart. When the Computer Science and Food Science people meet in the halls, there's tension. We need to establish some sort of pack dominance, or we'll never get anything done.

Our case is that we do actual science things, with circuits and numbers, while they faff around with lumps of old meat all day. But they get to have lab coats, and carry test tubes. Who is more science?

I enjoyed reading this very much :)

I was thinking of just buying a lab coat and walking around in it. I mean, I don't need it, but it's not like they can take it off me if I choose to wear it. It's not like impersonating a police officer, is it?

There are a wide array of variables that go into determining who is more science, the least of which are far outside the comprehension of a computer scientist.

Gaydar exists naturally in humans in the taste buds.

But they're even further beyond the understanding of mere Food Scientists right? Right?
