I collect antimatter (positrons) every day. They are created in the decay of Na-22 (an unstable isotope of sodium) and the most I can get is ~ 10E8 of them. Large places like CERN can make much more, but it's all high energy so you can't store it because it has to be cooled down first. The amount that can reasonably be made and stored is measured in nano-grams, and even that is wildly optimistic.
I think my ex-wife would be a great research subject for anti-matter experiments. That little cunt was 98 pounds of pure negative energy. I'm thinking if you could harvest it, it might lead to a Nobel prize or something - at least a bit of anal.

Choob, I'd love your comments on the table at the end of this article: http://members.dancris.com/~bfraser/4v4a/ATMORNUC.html
, I can't read it all without my brain shutting down due to a fatal bullshit overload.

You can always turn tricks for a few extra bucks. If looks are an issue, there's the glory hole option, but don't expect more than ... tips.

I read somewhere that antimatter was identical to matter in all form except charge, meaning that whether the particle is matter or antimatter is only a matter of perspective in relation to the dominant charges of particles in our universe, and that a universe could have just have easily been formed of anti matter and what we call matter would be the anti matter of that universe. Is that at all correct?

And if so, why matter and not anti matter?
that's right. And we don't know where all the antimatter is. Current theories suggest it should have been created in equal measure, but clearly it wasn't or we wouldn't be here. Either some asymmetry in the big bang led to a preponderance of one over the other, or we are really off base about the structure of spacetime and the mechanisms that led to the formation of matter in the early universe. This is one of the many reasons why we need to study the fucking Higgs Boson.

If it had been what we now call antimatter we would just have called it matter.

Oh, man. These guys are great...

2. The atom smashing experiments show how the atom breaks up, not how it is put together. Ducks are not made of quacks just because quacks come out of ducks. Alpha particles, beta, and gamma rays are also common disintegration products, but physicists do not regard them as "parts" of the atom.
Am I going to have to scrap everything I ever thought I knew about ducks? If an 18 quack duck gives off 3 quacks it won't be a 15 quack duck? But what if a 12 quack duck gives off 13 quacks? Is it not then an anti-duck?

Certainly an unstable test subject!

What about uncle-matter. Is this a femminist site? :lol:
And if Chenney had shouted "Duck" instead of "Quail" there would have been a whole lot less to quack about.
