Daily Blogg: Day 20....and counting

Damn you BT, damn you and your stupid "we will escalate your case to...", damn your petty nasal whining, damn your "were doing all we can" and damn your stupid outsourced accents!

20 days with dial up level speed and only now are they "considering" sending out an engineer to the local exchange to "modify my personal access". Lets just say my patients with outsourced idiots who know as much about broadband internet access as i do about sub quantum string theory and its relation to dimensional harmonics...

...sure i know it exists as a subject of curiosity and i know that somebody out there has a relatively good idea how and why it relates to my day to day life, but damned if i can do anything about it so why should i care?

Today is the last day im giving BT to fix my service before i start official complaints through Ofcom (http://www.ofcom.org.uk/).

This far and no further...this is the line in the sand

in fact all i know about that rather elusive subject is that gravity acting in the hidden dimensions affects other non-gravitational forces such as electromagnetism. In fact, Kaluza's early work demonstrated that general relativity in five dimensions actually predicts the existence of electromagnetism. However, because of the nature of Calabi-Yau manifolds, no new forces appear from the small dimensions, but their shape has a profound effect on how the forces between the strings appear in our four-dimensional universe. In principle, therefore, it is possible to deduce the nature of those extra dimensions by requiring consistency with the standard model, but this is not yet a practical possibility. It is also possible to extract information regarding the hidden dimensions by precision tests of gravity, but so far these have only put upper limitations on the size of such hidden dimensions.

//wipes bits of my own brain matter off my screen since that blew my mind

not bad for somebody with an IQ of only 144 eh?

I know its your blog but do you really have to 'whip it out' here? There are women present...

Aries said...

in a word...yes.

its a shocking rarity that i actually show my intelligence to the world at large.

*puts it away* maby in another 4 years ill whip it out again
