comment Scientific Laws for Engineering Materials
You could argue that purely descriptive laws like Hooke's which just describe an observation but don't offer any explanation are different from some fundamental theory which predicts effects. But I don't know what you would call them other .

comment How can we count 17 particles in the standard model
I think it's more that there are 17 known particles which constitue the standard model - rather than the standard model predicts/requires exactly 17particles.

@fffred it wouldn't rebound because it couldn't store the potential energy in deformation. It's one of those silly unmovable object vs irresistible force questions

@Floris if you are in charge of fixing the defn of 'year' and the speed of light is fixed then you can have pretty much all the decimal places you want ;-)

comment Time should run slower near massive body

@DavidHammen - it's a wrong assumption but not a bad one.
