The nuptial effect

Every day, on average, 2-3 physicists get married.  On Saturday I’ll be attempting to push that average to as high as 3-4.

This isn't what

It’ll be more like this than not.

So (for our regular readers), there’ll be a longer gap between posts than usual.  The future Mrs. Physicist (technically, her name will be “Dr. Physicist”) would probably prefer that I show up for the ceremony than stay at home writing about prime numbers and whatnot.

    Haha, what’s wrong with simply cohabiting? As people of science, who deserve all honour, you should not be tied down by non-scientific institutions!

    Congratulations! But, in theory, the average won’t change will it?

    In keeping with your Star Trek pic, I offer this advice: remember to keep Rule of Acquisition number 40 in mind: She can touch your lobes, but never your profit. 🙂

    Peace and Long Life,

    Hey awesome man, congratulations

    P.S.: Is it true that, on average, 2-3 physicists get married everyday?

  19. Bear says:

    Congratulations, brother!

    Totally bodacious dude!

  21. The Physicist The Physicist says:

    Since I’m only one of the somewhere around a hundred thousand total physicists (rough number) worldwide, the fact that I got married had very little effect on the average, the “prior” that I’m getting married just means that there’s one marriage certain, and the others take care of themselves. That’s basically a “+1”.
    Give or take!
