Pulsars in binary orbits


Nice ! What sort of orbital parameters will be used ? What ranges for these ? A full model ? Low eccentricity ? Interesting ... :-) :-)

Cheers, Mike.

You will be pleased to know I found your previous vehicular transport, Mike - to the one you so inspiringly parked I mean :)



The insanely intended intense interest initiated instantly here is "what is the cow on the right thinking ?" Possibles :

- gee I wish I had one of those on my head.

- first driving lesson, huh ?

- it's been there for two weeks now.

- the fads of youth.

- you do realise that it's no longer funny.

- this always happens to the newcomers.

- now this is exactly why you couldn't get Cow Insurance last year.

- no, you can't blame Apple or Microsoft for this.

- you promised to give me a turn sometime.

- how do you go at the drive thru ?

- slow day huh ?

- no one is going to vote you in as Queen Of The Paddock now.

- you're a shoe-in for Queen Of The Paddock now.

Cheers, Mike.

Newton invented it, Einstein warped it and the rest of us abuse it or are abused by it. After all how could I properly fall out of bed without it ? :-) :-)

Cheers, Mike.

{ Reminiscence mode on : fade to grey scale imagery with stutters at low resolution }

It reminds me of my youth when a passenger in the family car and how intent we were to gaze at the odometer during a voyage, just to watch it roll over at some relevant Magic Number. For me this is the literal meaning of milestones, and they were miles too ....

[ We never had a TV at home until my late teens except for a few weeks around the Moon landing in '69. This was to my great advantage. I read book after book after book. If you had said "internet" then I would have assumed some type of fishing device. ]

As for my milestones here at E@H, I have recently gone past a million yards [ as measured in inches ] ! :-) :-)

Cheers, Mike.

Incoming! incoming!
AnnieT alert
Secure all positions
Prepare for onslaught

Thanks Chris ! I'll just jump into a position I prepared earlier :



Uh oh .... too late.

Imagine what you could do if you were let loose with one of David's trains...

What can I say but Pure Armageddon. Every one else has substandard Armageddons. Mere 3D. Mine will be a topo-bottle-o-logical nightmare ....



... see if you can drink Wreckawlthelegs from that !

Cheers, Mike.

( edit ) Oskar Klein has much to answer for IMHO. :-)

( edit ) I'm becoming cross-eyed looking at that glassware, and I feel some .... temporary loss .... of consciousness .... happening too. I've just gone ( I've just gone ( I've just gone ( I've just gone ( I've just gone ( I've just gone re-entrant ) re-entrant ) re-entrant ) re-entrant ) re-entrant ) re-entrant.

Good heavens. You give your drink to the blind rat, it gets drunk and then you eat the rat ! :-) :-)

{ Clarity In Language Dept } I should have said : would you care to get the blind rat drunk sir ? If you are a blind rat yourself in the first instance, de novo as it were, then that's different. Not a cab fare per se, but a mate of mine in the RAAF can arrange a HALO insertion for you .....

FWIW : I go for the Strawberry-Lime Rekorderlig.

Cheers, Mike.
