Got another one?

It was pretty boring in the cocktail bar this evening. Only a few guests, the music played In the army now and my friends were busy in a talk. I was bored. At the other end of the bar sat a couple and the female's top, if it could be called so, left little to imagine. So I reflected upon this manifold, its tangent spaces and the singularity in the middle, which this girl offered to be seen or divined.
(I'm still not sure, whether it's really a singularity ...)

My familiarity with the experimental side of such research is limited, but I'm reasonably sure the singularity is somewhat further below the event horizon. :rolleyes:

You carry an SA badge for expertise in a topic you studied (mostly) in your spare time?

You can explain what a Cartesian coordinate system is and know what a Cardassian is, but wouldn't recognize a Kardashian if you bumped into them on the street.

... if even your somewhat nerdy significant other thinks that you're obsessed.

A few weeks my daughter's ringette team (like ice hockey, but with a different "puck") played in a tournament in another town. An official asked me "Would you open and close one of the penalty box doors during the next game?" He, continued "I'll be in there with you, but I'll be running the clock." After I agreed, my wife (who has degrees in both physics and engineering) interjected "Just don't let him read his physics while he is in there!"

I have a feeling why they didn't offer you the clock management ...

If he reads in there, time dilation should be negligible.

I once sat late in the evening at the bar in a cocktail bar, as all of a sudden the woman next to me, who was a complete stranger, asked me to pay attention to her purse while she went outside for some minutes ... - I know what you mean.

I think I can do even better=when a "contraction" is the difference between the time ordered and normal ordered second-quantized field operators instead of a woman going into labor. (Google Wick's theorem, etc. ) LOL
