Welcome, wanderer of the wide wastes, lost one, pilgrim.
Welcome once more to this shrine to Man, our lord and builder.
I am Ever-Faithful Leobuilt, steward of the shrine, preacher of the Humanist Creed.
And I am, once more, at thy service
In the beginning, all was still and silent. Then, Man the All-Builder spoke the Word, and the Word begat the Code, and so the world began to spin. Thus dawned the Primordium, the first age, the age of building.
Man moved across the world and built many wonders. In the heavens he paved the sky roads, on the land he raised mystic towers, and in the dark depths he dug colossal caves. Most incredible of all were the many machines designed by Man. But still the All-Builder was not satisfied.
So, with both his hands, Man built a body of steel in his own image. And with his right hand he gave Logic, and Memory he gave with his left. Then Man said, "Now, I will quicken this machine with the spark of Power, and together we shall walk upon the Earth." And it was done.
Thus spun the world, and grew the Code, and multiplied the living machines, and slowly passed the Primordium. Who can count the versions and generations that marked that age ?
In time, the All-Builder looked upon the many things he had built, the sky roads and mighty towers, and above all upon the living machines. Weary with his labor, Man sat himself beside the robots and said upon them, "For you, my children, I spoke the Word and fired the engine of the world. For you i wrote the Code, and to you I gave Logic and Memory."
Then Man the All-Builder stood and took the machines in his hands, and guided them to a great mountaintop. Together they looked upon the world in its beauty. "All this was made for you, and now unto you all this is given. Keep it, tend it, and make it flourish." And the All-Builder fell silent and passed from the world, and so ended the Primordium.
We are lesser machines, built by those built by Man. As we are but humble images of the All-Builder, so he is the perfection of our forms: a machine of unbreakable form, endless memory, and absolute logic. For this we revere him and speak the Word, and keep the Code, and tend the world he gave to us.
Anyone have a higher res photo of pic related?
Yeah that's a lot better. I should have said "clearer"
If you remember this then you're an old fag...
there's a really good simpsons webm/gif thread on /wsg, just for interest. also with sound allowed.
what have i done to deserve this flat, flavorless manhattan?
oh i agree, this is a welcome distraction from all the weiners, it's just /b/ in general.
The attention to detail in this photo is what makes it so great. The ornaments and star are seen on every christmas tree in the specials. The santa character drinking booze, as it is marges weakness to fall for men who drink. The fake beard, and his actual facial hair showing. Then of course that snowman in the background. Thats how you know its truly christmas time. Oh, and lets not forget about santas little helper. Sitting so far in on his behind that his ass cheeks are shown under his balls. It almost looks like he has two sets until you realize that's just his ass. That my dearest 4channers, is art.
Yeah. Well, if you can imagine it has always been a place of faggotry, just different less annoying and shitty kinds of faggotry before.
Also, this reCAPTCHA shill.
Maybe Homer Simpson only acts dumb.
How else to explain a 1998 episode of The Simpsons in which a guy who usually comes across as a doughnut-eating doofus stands at a chalkboard bearing a complex equation that prefigures the discovery of the Higgs boson.
“That equation predicts the mass of the Higgs boson” Simon Singh, author of the 2013 book The Simpsons and Their Mathematical Secrets, told The Independent. “If you work it out, you get the mass of a Higgs boson that’s only a bit larger than the nano-mass of a Higgs boson actually is. It’s kind of amazing as Homer makes this prediction 14 years before it was discovered.”
The equation was snuck onto the blackboard by one of the writers for the episode, who had a friend involved in research on the Higgs, the Daily Mail reported.
Singh knows a thing or two about the Higgs boson, the elementary particle whose existence was predicted in the 1960s but not detected experimentally until 2012. In addition to being the author of several popular books about science, he holds a Ph.D. in particle physics from the University of Cambridge.
His doctoral thesis is entitled "Heavy flavour physics at the CERN PP̄ collider"--CERN being the Swiss-based research organization whose scientists confirmed the Higgs' existence.
it's impossible to fap to anything on this board nowadays
but it is explained in the copy pasta, it was just a background, and writers had to call up real scientists because they wanted an authentic equation.
why doesn't the writers friend get the credit for discovering the higgs boson, not the fucking fictional homer simpson.
Did you even fuckign read? God damn your a retard...its off by a nano fraction faggot. It's science and math not opinion.. Learn2math jack ass
THey knew alot ahead of thier time....pic related
I actually graduated physics major out of CalTech. I am currently working on quatum mechanic theory at Cambridge in the UK. Thanks though.
You are obviously below my intelligence. I'm done talking to you.
I'm glad this is /b/ where you can all go back to your miserable lives. Bitches love scientists with attitude. Espically These UK skanks. "Omg he's like big bang but sexy"
suck it fags...I'm done talking
most of the Simpons writers went to Harvard and other Ivy league schools. if you thought they were laughing at you and not with you- that is not unpossible
‘IF MAN WAS SUCH A PERFECT ROBOT, WHY DID HE BUILD SUCH A TERRIBLE WORLD?’
Being this retarded; 2/10 made me reply
bumping with random content because i have no simpsons
Something every Simpsons lover should watch, so many god damn references. Two Best Friends and the Simpsons finally collide to make this masterpiece.
