    Starting one with an implicit tautology is too.

    Posted By: Andrew PalfreymanAttempting to win an argument with a tautology is nothing but a cheap trick


    It's tautologies all the way down.

    Perhaps they should have used dysprosium hexafluoride

    Are you sure you don't mean DyF3, which actually exists?

    You looked!

    Sure, because I remembered valences and wanted to see if you could really get six fluorines in there like you can with uranium.

    Yes, UF6 was my trigger.

    I do wonder if all possible 2-element compounds have yet been synthesised. It's an 80 squared sort of a number, so not a small number at all (~7,000). How about 3-element (80 cubed or ~600,000)? Of course there are often several ways to combine the same elements.

    You can't just stick them together arbitrarily like styrofoam balls with toothpicks!

    Folks in Glasgow have photos of quantum entanglement

    Maybe Trim scooped me, but it's worth noting.

    It's a coffee stain.

    Considering the location, how do you know it's not a stain from pizza crunch with brown gravy?

    One prefers not to imagine such things.

    I guess they will be able to pass virtually unlimited virtual currents through the virtual superconductors.

    I'm virtually impressed
