and the it hole

so basically the motives of all the As were ‘I’m jealous that you’re all friends and you don’t want to be friends with me even though that’s perfectly reasonable because I’m fucking crazy’.

How Uncertain Are LIGO’s First Gravitational Wave Detections?

“What’s vital to understand is that no one is claiming LIGO is wrong, but rather that one team is claiming that perhaps LIGO has room for improvement in their analysis. And this is a very real danger that has plagued experimental physicists and astronomical observers for as long as those scientific fields have existed. The issue is not that LIGO’s results are in doubt, but rather that LIGO’s analysis may be imperfect.”

Three times now, the LIGO collaboration has produced very strong evidence that black hole pairs, from across the Universe, inspiraled and merged, producing gravitational waves. The twin LIGO detectors in Hanford, WA and Livingston, LA each detected these signals, and the signals were correlated between both detectors. For the first time ever (and the second, and the third), we had directly detected gravitational waves. But last month, a team of independent scientists from Denmark attempted to reproduce LIGO’s analysis, and noticed something that shouldn’t be there: noise correlations between the two detectors. Noise is supposed to be uncorrelated, and yet the noise correlations peaked at the moment of the inspiral-and-merger event. It doesn’t mean that gravitational waves aren’t real, but it does mean that LIGO, perhaps, has room for improvement.

This has been a very controversial topic over the past few weeks; come learn where we are in this saga of science playing out in real-time!

Astronomers detect orbital motion in pair of supermassive black holes

Using the supersharp radio “vision” of the National Science Foundation’s Very Long Baseline Array (VLBA), astronomers have made the first detection of orbital motion in a pair of supermassive black holes in a galaxy some 750 million light-years from Earth.

The two black holes, with a combined mass 15 billion times that of the Sun, are likely separated by only about 24 light-years, extremely close for such a system.

“This is the first pair of black holes to be seen as separate objects that are moving with respect to each other, and thus makes this the first black-hole ‘visual binary,’” said Greg Taylor, of the University of New Mexico (UNM).

OH MY GOODNESS THIS WAS A STRANGE IDEA. xD

How does one manage to turn a very ~sexy~ Bruno Mars song into a ridiculous parody about a stuffed bear, time-traveling, and super hot warriors from Japan’s Sengoku Era? The answer: Ikémen FREAKING Sengoku. 😅

This is basically a super-condensed version of the game’s prologue. Did I mention that the character I had in mind while writing this was the MC’s most loyal companion a.k.a. her stuffed bear, Bearsace?

^^Look at this stuffy! Isn’t it adorable??? Also, I applaud the MC for making such a clever pun~. 👏

DISCLAIMER: I wrote this song in an hour, more or less (Minus editing, which didn’t take too long tbh. :P). So don’t be surprised if it sounds silly (Because it totally is.). Also, I don’t have a super smooth & sexy voice like Bruno Mars, so sorry for my baby-like voice. And finally: I’m sorry if I mispronounced “Sengoku” (I’m such a noob, LOL.). 😅

Yep: I’m back with the “quality” shitposting. Enjoy(?) xD

Here’s the OG song in case you aren’t aware of it/want to give it a listen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d2UZlwTDGbY


LYRICS

[Verse 1]

Tonight’s gonna change your life, girl

Above you all the stars are watchin’

There’s nothing you’d want as much in this world

Than your job in fashion designin’

But just when you thought all was well

You’re suddenly alone

All present day comforts seemed

To disappear like a dream

But how?


[Pre-Chorus]

In the dark you saw lightning strike

And before your eyes

Suddenly you saw a world

You never knew before

A past you cannot ignore

History’s in the making, baby


[Chorus]

Bearsace on the floor

Oooh stuck in the past with me, with me, with me, with me now, girl

Bearsace on the floor

Oooh your modern day stuffy, stuffy, stuffy, stuffy now, girl, oooh


[Verse 2]

You saved some guy from a burning house

Another stopped you from falling

You soon got the chance to meet them all:

Famous warriors of Sengoku

Don’t you fret: you’ve got some help

From that ninja/physics student

Who said, “Although we’re years in the past

Three months will pass by real fast, then we’ll be home, our home”


[Pre-Chorus]

You saw the lightning strike

And before your eyes

Suddenly you saw a world

You never knew before

A past you cannot ignore

History’s in the making, baby


[Chorus]

Bearsace on the floor

Oooh stuck in the past with me, with me, with me, with me now, girl

Bearsace on the floor

Oooh your modern day stuffy, stuffy, stuffy, stuffy now, girl


*Funky Instrumental*


[Bridge]

It’s warmin’ up

Can you feel it?

It’s warmin’ up

Can you feel it?

It’s warmin’ up

Can you feel it, baby?

It’s warmin’ up

Oh, romance five hundred years in the past

History’s in the making


[Chorus]

Oooh, Bearsace on the floor

Hey baby

Stuck in the past with me, with me, with me, with me now, girl

Bearsace on the floor

Oooh your modern day stuffy, stuffy, stuffy, stuffy now, girl


[Outro]

Bearsace on the floor
