Nothing To See Here, Move Along

Slacking bad lately, eh? This blogging hobby as all but dried up it seems.

Not much of anything interesting to say, so let me tell you why more matter than antimatter remains when you collide protons with antiprotons:
"The ratio of matter to antimatter in the experiment was revealed by observing a particular product of the collision, called B mesons. These particles are made up of one quark and one antiquark. B mesons, in turn, decay into other particles, including a type called muons. By studying the kinds of muons created in the collision, the researchers were able to calculate just how much more matter than antimatter resulted."
I'll bet you didn't know that.

Why no. I did NOT know that.

Blogging seems to be taking on shititude all over the place...witness my own.

This bit of info reminds me of the bio book I just read about John Forbes Nash (Russell Crowe movie "A Beautiful Mind").....about a third of the book was this kind of stuff.
Like reading Greek. The balance was good, though.

I enjoyed that movie, but I definitely don't want to read the book if that's the way it is.

Dave, it's easy to skim those parts. the rest of it is worth the read.
