To whom it may concern:

Please, leave a certain user alone that used to regularly post on Physics Stack Exchange. Stop whining and crying about it, and act your chronological rather than your social age. The site is doing just fine without him, and new stars will always appear to replace the old ones. The site is meant for users of all levels from highschool to research level, so it's not being downgraded at all--unless you want it to be a physics equivalent of Math Over Flow.

If you find the place too painful and unhealthy then just leave. No one particularly cares about you, anymore than they do about me or anyone else. It's just a place where people can ask and answer physics questions.

OK? Good. May your time be filled with lashings of physics, topped with more physics delights. Have a nice day :)

comment Is space unending?
"fields don't move", I agree with you yet the electromagnetic system including all sources has a center of energy that moves at constant velocity and represents the "electromagnetic + mechanical mass" of the system. If the sources move, then so must the fields it would appear to me.

comment Magnetic force and frames of reference
When you transform force, you can't switch what it acts upon between frames; it has to refer to the same object it's acting upon in both cases.

comment Magnetic force and frames of reference
Do you mean: "How would this observer account for the movement of the particle caused by the force F′?"

comment Feynman's proof for Liénard-Wiechert's potential of a moving charge
You're not the only one who's noticed this double counting: arxiv.org/abs/0704.1574. What matters is if it gives a correct solution to Maxwell's equations and Feynman's derivation does.

revised Can the equivalence principle be shown to follow from special relativity?
Improved accuracy as suggested in one of the comments, while the question is still active via Ben Crowell's answer.

comment How was the formula for kinetic energy found, and who found it?
Momentum and energy are two ways of quantifying motion. I don't think it's correct to say that Newton was talking about energy at all; he simply defined a momentum as a convenient measure of the movement power of motion.

This isn't a bad question, I don't understand the downvotes.

First to congrat Lubos on getting 100K WHOOOOOOOOOOOO! Although you could have done this years ago if ya wanted ;)

comment Where does either Bohr or Heisenberg mention the idea of the wave function collapsing?
Yes, I think von Neumann's book deals with it, but he wasn't a part of the Copenhagen school. It's claimed in many places that wave function collapse is part of the Copenhagen interpretation and I'd like to know where exactly.

comment Where does either Bohr or Heisenberg mention the idea of the wave function collapsing?
I've looked through Heisenberg's paper and can't find the paragraph: ntrs.nasa.gov/archive/nasa/casi.ntrs.nasa.gov/19840008978.pdf

@jinawee No, comments for questions are meant to clarify and help modify the question, not to answer it.
