Drunk Merchant: Yeah I saw that sword in NMB back when it first listed, shame really. That’s why sellers always have to do full disclosures. Sept 29, 2023 15:45:36 GMT *

Katsu: Hey Merch! Just wanted you to see this Sept 12, 2023 13:12:00 GMT
nerdthenord: Lol, well that’s on them Sept 8, 2023 16:40:43 GMT
RufusScorpius: Not so good. Had a big argument with my housemates. They said the place was haunted, I said I've lived there 183 years and never saw a ghost. Sept 8, 2023 16:04:53 GMT *
nerdthenord: Also, how you doing Scorp? Doing ok myself. Sept 8, 2023 13:37:45 GMT
nerdthenord: It's pretty cool that water can be neutral, an acid, or a base without changing any of it's physical properties, but instead the theoretical definition of acidity used. Sept 8, 2023 13:31:43 GMT *
nerdthenord: I do love that when you talk about acids and based with a chemist though you have to specify what theory and definition of acids you are using. It's very easy to teach and understand the PH Scale, but it's not nearly as simple in real life Sept 8, 2023 13:30:49 GMT
nerdthenord: True, it can't be completely dismissed in extreme conditions. I personally doubt it would be "Normal" matter, with protons, neutrons, and electrons though. Might be exotic matter like quark matter. Big disclaimer, I am not a theoretical Chemist either. Sept 8, 2023 13:29:03 GMT
RufusScorpius: I wonder if there's another planet where their swords are made from Unseptbium and the hobbyists there are arguing about the properties of it's various alloys? :D Sept 8, 2023 13:16:11 GMT
RufusScorpius: the existence of elements beyond the 7th period can't be dismissed. Like the theory of proton decay, we don't have the technology to devise an experiment to confirm or deny it. Esoteric elements MAY exist around neutron stars, magnetars, and etc. Sept 8, 2023 13:11:54 GMT
AndiTheBarvarian: Nuclear physicists are the nuclear constituents' accessories to deliberate about themselves! Sept 8, 2023 6:49:26 GMT
nerdthenord: There’s a reason I’m not a nuclear physicist lol Sept 8, 2023 6:09:56 GMT
treeslicer: No, it's because proton charge repulsion overwhelms the strong nuclear force due to the increasing nuclear diameter. The nucleus is too fat rather than too heavy. :D Sept 8, 2023 5:35:09 GMT *
