comment Negative and positive energy and Hawking
About the zero energy universe, there's a good discussion here: mathoverflow.net/questions/38659/total-energy-of-the-universe

comment Hierarchy is no problem and susy is a mathematical tool for data fitting
@MattReece I hope you consider adding an answer for the benefit of all. Especially about the mass-vev confusion.

comment How can I explain why the weak nuclear interaction between individual nucleons is 'weak'?
-1: a number of people won the Nobel prize for their work on these two interactions!

comment How exactly does time slow down near a black hole?
Your last remark reminded me of the twin paradox. So the one who returns to Earth will be back in the future? To me the situation you described is similar in principle, right?

comment Sources for new experimental limits on susy models?
@dmckee I can do this, but it's always better to be up-to-date, hence my enquiry.

comment Sources for new experimental limits on susy models?
Thanks Anna for the links, and I surely know Lubos's blog (who doesn't? :p). I usually prevent myself from visiting vixra because, at this stage, I fear I won't be able to tell if what I'm reading is trustable or not.

comment Sources for new experimental limits on susy models?
Thanks for your answer, the links and the blog. I'm still a novice with regards to reading experimental results and plots, but I certainly should learn how to get the info from the papers. Anyways, I also found this: twiki.cern.ch/twiki/bin/view/AtlasPublic/CombinedSummaryPlots which contains what I was particularly looking for (the new limit on gluino)

comment Is QCD free from all divergences?
I don't undersand this too!! I learned all this divergence/regularization/renormalization stuff from calculating the QCD $\beta$-function which amounts to calculating a number of ultraviolet divergent integrals!!
