Hi guys, i haven’t been able to update the next segment of the “twin paradox” saga, on account of being in Toronto for the Canadian Association of Physicists conference. I gave a talk, where i presented my research on quantum-collapsing matter turning into a black hole. I talked to all sorts of folks. Also, many of the friends i have made over the years and across the continent are at this conference, and it’s great to catch up!
I suppose the funnest talk I heard was by a gentleman named Kipp Cannon, and he presented a talk where the LIGO gravitational wave detector could be used to look for COSMIC STRINGS whose gravitational waves rumble like thunder… If they exit.
Toronto, the capital of the province of Ontario, is canada’s largest city. almost 3 million people! and the university is within walking distance from all sorts of fun food! I’ve eaten Ethiopian food, and Ramen, and Udon, and a PIZZA SLICE bigger than my head.
The moral of the story is that the CAP conference is lots of fun. and also, that Toronto is a surprisingly wonderful and charming city and well worth a visit. (Also I have found the Sneaky Dee’s restaurant that appears in the scott pilgrim books, and i’ve also gotten lost in HONEST ED’S!!!)
