    But doesn't change the fact that very few laws are important in the sense you're saying .

    Scientific publishing....

    So I was selected to peer review an article for a scientific journal. (I'd say mid to high quality in the field)
    Having read through it, I am about 50-50 on whether to approve this for publication. Clearly written and well presented, but I have reservations on its impact on the field of study.

    Why the delay in my decision? They cite one of my publications...
    For as long as there is limited overs cricket - of ten, twenty or fifty overs - there will remain the Sri Lankan spinners' mid-innings choke

    I used this as a reference for a class on vertebrate morphology: Amazon.com: Ornithology (9780716749837): Frank B. Gill: Books

    I'd recommend it.
    Excellent. The library has this book available for loan. I'll give it a whirl.

    I must have got the wrong end of the stick somewhere in basic quantum theory. I thought parts of it fell out of the universe being discrete, not continuous, and that the Planck length/time was the size of these discrete subdivisions. Must be an idea from a bad pop sci book

    I don't know if any of you nerds have posted this and I'm too lazy to check:

    The Scale of the Universe

    So awesome and cool.

    The song to the big bang theory was going through my head as I was scrolling through it.

    If things weren't exactly the way they are, nothing would exist? That's a mighty assumption.
