    Good news, everybody! Between this and last week's article that scientists claim to have proven that we're not in a simulation of reality, it looks like we can finally relax and enjoy knowing that we're real. /professorfarnsworth

    I bet the other half is in my couch. I find so much shit in there. And every time I lose my keys I end up finding them in my couch.

    Someone tell Science to call me.

    Half of it can be explained here on sherdog. Land of unknown geniuses.

    For those who understood the issue and gave a shit about our theoretical models being accurate, it is exciting news.

    That's the problem it's theoretical.. and its only accurate based on their own axioms..

    They can find missing matter, but they can't find Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 or Jimmy Hoffa?

    Fucking misplaced priorities if you ask me.

    So... You wouldn't use numbers and measurements to quantify the matter in the observable universe?

    What would you say? "There is a beautiful amount of matter." "The quantity of matter is merely what we perceive it to be."

    You must be fun at work.
    Your boss: how many gallons of oil did you put in the fryer?
    You: "Gallons" is a human construct man! I will not judge the deep fryer oil by humans arbitrary concepts of numbers and volume!

    Seriously girls do not seem to understand that the fat ass is supposed to come with thick legs to match. It's not supposed to be a balloon on a stick.

    Pretty neat.

    The news that we are "not in the matrix" seems flawed in that, upon reading articles about the news, it seems that they've ruled out the possibility that the physics of our universe is impossible to map and simulate on any computer that we have or have conceived currently. I always thought that it was more of a "subreality" like how there's a physics engine it our video games but is less complete and only simulates our own.
