So Oliver is going over to the Dark Side?
Wait a minute,, is he dissing Superman??
Or maybe Dark Energy!
Thanks for reminding me. My gluons need watering.
Instead let us speak of Cabbages and Kings and other Things.
The Higgs field reminds me of luminiferous ether.Now they say space is expanding because dark energy may be made up of some kind of particle that pops into existence , then pop back out. Sounds a lot like Fred Hoyle’s steady state universe.
And yet dark energy is entirely a “God in the gaps” style argument. We observe something we can’t understand and attribute it to an unknown force. We give that force a name and think that we have really explained something, when all we’ve really done is craft a roundabout tautology.
You’re not going to String me along…
I’ll see your Reality, and raise you Alternative Universe !
When Dark Mater mates with Darth Vader, what will be the issue?
He left out String Theory.
Remember: dark Matter has gravity (attracts) and dark energy repels. BTW there is better evidence for the “Darks” than a [god of the] gaps argument
Yet another excellent strip!
Does it explain Donald Trump?
Cats control dark matter. How else could a cat suddenly feel like it weighs ten times as much as it usually does when sitting on you?
Did you check under the couch? A lot of stuff falls between the cushions.
Aren’t gluons like pasties? Do the girls in Vegas still even use pasties?
“Dark matter. Explains everything, thank God!” What a wonderful line
Try marrying string and quantum theories and misbehaving sub-nuclear inferred particles. It’s fun!
My word, did someone reference Bodi, Gold and Hoyle’s Steady State theorem? That’s really wqorking the “way back machine.”
