One of the "delights" of being a faculty member in a college physics department is that from time to time you get massive emails, complete with a half-dozen dropbox links, with subject lines like 

Quote

RESONANCE/GEL SCIENCE THEORY/MIND READING (UPDATED 11/2020; NOT SPAM) THE THEORY PHYSICS/ASTRONOMY HAS BEEN WAITING FOR: NEW BLACK HOLE THEORY, THEORY OF EVERYTHING, NEW ATOMIC MODEL, **GRAND UNIFICATION COMPLETED**, CREATION OF SOLAR SYSTEM, ALS/MIND ...

 

Yes, in all caps.  Mmmm-hmmm.

 

EDIT: Mind you, this one was so important it was sent out to 115 or so addresses, and I suspect there were another couple of dozen other copies with which he carpet-bombed the email universe.  Not copy-pasting any of them here, but a couple of non-personal-looking addresses in the .gov.ae domain; the Cambodian Embassy in Canada; the physics department advisor at U of Florida; looks like a bunch of folks at Warwick U in the UK, each of whom were so important they were on the "To:" list twice; and then what looks to be the top of a mass alphabetical list which only got into user addresses starting with "B".  Nice to know everyone gets this gem.

Does anyone remember how to do spoilers on these boards? I thought I knew, but it didn't work when I tried.

 

It's different with the new software. You have to highlight what you want to Spoiler, then click the icon that looks like an eye in the function bar above the text window.
