    Well, all I have to say is that the Nobel committee is going to have egg all over their face when it is finally realized that the force holding the nucleus together is really gravity. :biggrin:

    You are so naughty. Maybe that's why I like you! :)

    I am sure Andrew will agree on this one... :biggrin:

    I always knew that asymptotic freedom was worth a lot of money :tongue2:

    Carlo Rovelli will win the next Nobel price for LQG...

    wanna bet on this one ???

    I bet you are wrong :tongue2:
    Let us bet Carlo's book ok :biggrin:

    I would like an opinion : how come Bjorken never had the prize for scaling, but Friedman Kendal and Taylor did because they experimentally checked his conjecture ? Bjorken had the idea, they only verified it !

    Speaking of prize-winners, Martinus Veltman has just accepted a position at Ohio State. Hope he stays. I hear he's not very popular among the high energy circles ...
