Quantum field locking results in levitating cold thingy



Flux pinning is the phenomenon that magnetic flux lines do not move (become trapped, or "pinned") in spite of the Lorentz force acting on them inside a current-carrying Type II superconductor. The phenomenon cannot occur in Type I superconductors, since these cannot be penetrated by magnetic fields (Meissner–Ochsenfeld effect). Flux pinning is only possible when there are defects in the crystalline structure of the superconductor (usually resulting from grain boundaries or impurities). The natural magnetic waves that bend around and pin the superconductor in mid space also break into millions of ultra-thin lines and each one carries a flux quantum caused from the superconductor being so sensitive to magnetic waves.

This is what happens when you mess with Marriage between One Man and One Woman

This is a completely serious post.  Do not take it lightly.

Perhaps you've seen the music video "Call me maybe" by Carly Rae Jepson.  If not, it's below.  Catchy tune.  Watch until the end for the surprise and humorous twist.






Well, here's what happens when you take meddling with nature to the logical conclusion.  I'm not sure that there is anything that can be done to undo the damage.

Rest In Peace Bob Welch

Bob was a Fleetwood Mac guitarist and had a few hits of his own.  Great musician, beautiful music.  He committed suicide at his home in Nashville.  This is so very sad.



You are here and warm 
But I could look away and you'd be gone  
'Cause we live in a time  
When meaning falls in splinters from our lives  
And that's why I've traveled far 
'Cause I come so together where you are
 

And all of the things that I said that I wanted  
Come rushing by in my head when I'm with you  
14 joys and a will to be merry  
And all of the things that they say are very
Sentimental gentle wind  

Blowing through my life again 
Sentimental lady Gentle one
 

Now you are here today  
But easily you might just go away  
'Cause we live in a time  
When paintings have no color, words don't rhyme  
And that's why I've traveled far  
'Cause I come so together where you are
 

And all of the things that I said that I wanted  
Come rushing by in my head when I'm with you  
14 joys and a will to be merry  
All of the things that we say are very   
Sentimental gentle wind  
Blowing through my life again  
Sentimental lady Gentle one

Yes and all of the things that I said that I wanted  
Come rushing by in my head when I'm with you  
14 joys and a will to be merry  
All of the things that they say are very
Sentimental gentle wind  

Blowing through my life again

Sentimental gentle wind 

Blowing through my life again
