I hate when there is a big scientific discovery. Physicists are literally incapable of explaining something in laymans terms and its possible real world applications. They just cream themselves like the autists that they are
If it doesn't lead to time travel or contact with aliens then I'm really not interested. If the only benefit is proof that Einstein was right and Physicists can have some jerk off material for the next 50 years who gives a shit?
>>26417182 haha, how can autism be used as an insult? Only an ignorant cunt would use autism as an insult. (And there's nothing I hate more than ignorance)
Autism is a gift in my case, I have an IQ of over 150 which makes me technically a genius thanks to my autism. I've been going through school all my life being bored out of my fucking brains getting at least 95% on all my tests (and all the incorrect answers were silly mistakes) because I'm just too fucking smart for school I can't wait for everyone else to learn something I already knew within the first day or too of being taught it. Every year I scored the best of my year on these stupid multiple choice tests we do and the headmaster came to my class to tell me that, which obviously resulted in being called a 'nerd' which is true but I shouldn't be ridiculed for it.
I recently became home educated so I could learn at my own pace and I'm getting my GCSEs done in 1/4 of the time everyone else has to do it in, I'm also doing more than double the average amount of GCSEs that usually would be done.
I used to get paid $30 an hour working online, which is more than the teaching assistants at my old school earned, it was so fun pointing that out to them.
So, in conclusion, calling someone autistic is not an insult, in my case, it makes me highly gifted.
One more thing, I don't know if this has anything to do with my autism but I am a sociopath so I'm not hindered by irrational emotions like guilt, compassion, empathy etc.
haha, the most satisfying this is to know that you will all see this as a waste of a natural gift that I am undeserving hahaha, that brings me great satisfaction.
I'm practically perfect, let the jealousy flow through you. sempai
>all these people who think all knowledge should have an immediately apparent practical purpose I bet you think quantum mechanics is useless to understand, yet lasers, LEDs, and even fluorescent tubes work explicitly off this principle. When it was first being studied, no one thought of making practical light sources and fiber optic lines.
I bet you struggle to understand electricity just because you can't see it with the naked eye and believe that high voltage power lines cause cancer
I get what you are saying but what if someone had said in 1903 "wright brothers make shitty kite plane fly like 10 feet"
you personally would have been 30+ years from getting a ride in a decent airplane and even sciencefags would not have known exactly when that would come to pass or what it would look like when it did, but it was a big deal
It's a cool as fuck discovery, I was fascinated by the stats of it desu
Basically what happened it 2 black holes, one of which was 35x the mass of our sun, sucked each other in. The energy released in that instant was greater than that of the combined light given out by every star in the universe
The piece of equipment used was so sensitive that it could detect any change in distance between our solar system and the nearest star 4 light years away up to the diameter of a human hair
Basically scientists can "read" waves, and have been able to see what happened up to 400,000 years after the big bang happened. With these gravitational waves, they may be able to read much further back so we actually know what happened when the universe came into being
This is why only a select few individuals are physicists. The autism and the curiosity have to combine with intelligence, and the ability to realize that innovation can lay the foundation for future practical discovery.
Most major discoveries have been due to stumbling upon the right thing at the right time with the right frame of mind. Hell, Darwin paired his own observations and evidence with other people's explanations to write his book on the theory of evolution. But up until then, he was just the autist collecting samples in jars and jizzing when he found new, unexpected species, that forced him to reconsider his earlier conception of nature.
It took a while for the rest of the world to understand, though. And now look where we are.
Think of it like carbon dating. Sure, as a whole, it's not applicable to the average person. But the ability to measure the age of something, is what allows us to predict future degenerations and deterioration. It lets us know the limits of certain organisms. It allows us to read remains like a diary of the past.
Similarly, the ability to measure gravitational waves will allow us to measure the age/distance of past astronomical events, things that we will never see, but could give us data to form a more complete theory of the universe.
Look where we are, in acceptance/understanding of the theory of evolution, silly. Sure there are deniers, but more/most people understand the concept now a lot better than they did pre-Darwin, if at all.
