Relativity Facepalm - part 2
Solving the Twins Paradox
On Grey Holes and Strings
We are pleased to announce our team has finally completed its year-long
research into the standard model of particle physics using the
newer-generation accelerators. Our results show strong
promise for the possibility of cold fusion, while also indicating that
various assumptions behind quantum chromodynamics need to be sharply
revised, and that certain aspects of Big Bang cosmology should be
dismissed altogether. We herein submit our results for
publication and invite your considered review.
Sneer, sneer, jeer, jeer, scoff, snort... "but Einstein said...blah

scoff, deride, deny, denounce, suppress, censure, ban, bury.

Chief layman: (comes rushing in, breathless) “Sire, people are
questioning our holy scripture. They’re saying dark energy is hogwash.”
Priest: “What? Sacrilege! Quick, everyone to the
forums. And be sure to call them crackpots.”
Chief layman: “But Your Holiness, that line of attack is wearing thin.
Commoners are branding it ad-hominem and unscientific.”
Priest: “Uhh, okay. Then call them asshats. And
translate it to Latin so it sounds professional.”
Congregation: (quickly scatters from the pews and exits).
