    ... that is completely consistent with existing theory related to black hole mergers.

    Apparently not... since black holes can't exist.

    Posted By: alsetalokinNot quite. One could imagine experiments ... that is, +true+ experiments... that could assign causality in the case of the LIGO signals. However, observations are not experiments and unfortunately astrophysics is largely an observational and theoretical, not experimental, science.

    Isn't that true of everything? We just assume the next electron is identical to the last which allows us to say two experiments were 'identical'. But of course, we know they weren't really.

    Shoe strings and egg openers.

    "The respective Rubisco activase in green plants works more like an egg opener, squeezing the inactive Rubisco protein and forcing it to let go of the sugar molecules."

    An egg opener? What have I been missing? Although I do know what these are:
    egg timer
    egg slicer
    egg poacher
    egg plant
    egg beater
    egg foo yong
    egg sucking
    egg drop

    egg cetera...

    Maybe it's a machine that takes a boiled egg and rolls it to peel off the shell fragments so created?

    Egg openers are found only in the most well to do households, being an eggtravagance.

    Egad!

    Yeah haha and all that. But I think you're all bluffing. You're just like me - no clue what an egg opener is. Or was that a piece of contemporary robotics that passed us by?

    I will stand behind AP on this. Egg openers do not exist. And if they do, they shouldn't.

    Sounds about the same for most kitchen implements. Having gone from quite a large kitchen to something the size of a postage stamp, I must have thrown out a tonne of such crap, but I have invested in some Japanese VG10 steel knives and a set of whetstones.
