comment What is spin as it relates to subatomic particles?
@حكيمالفيلسوفالضائع, yes they are for all intents and purposes. Certainly in traditional QM they are. In QFT, there are no particles at all really; particles are just conceptual approximations... but you're over-simplifying things. Something tells me you're just a reader of pop-science and think you understand it because of that.

comment Is acceleration an absolute quantity?
@WetSavannaAnimalakaRodVance: Haha yeah, I mean that very much tongue in cheek. Alas, even if I were smart enough to be one (far from it), the extent of human knowledge these days makes it basically impossible. :) Got to envy those Renaissance men.

comment Is it possible to obtain gold through nuclear decay?
@ChrisWhite: Yes, fair point, you are right of course. But the point remains that fusion produces elements necessarily heavier than gold (greater in number of nucleons) that are then able to decay into Au atoms.
