The CSIRO has discovered the heaviest element yet known to science.

The new element is Governmentium (Gv). It has one neutron, 25 assistant neutrons, 88 deputy neutrons and 198 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 312.

These 312 particles are held together by forces called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of lefton-like particles called peons.

Since Governmentium has no electrons or protons, it is inert. However, it can be detected, because it impedes every reaction with which it comes into contact.

A tiny amount of Governmentium can cause a reaction normally taking less than a second to take from four days to four years to complete.

Governmentium has a normal half-life of 2- 6 years. It does not decay but instead undergoes a reorganisation in which a portion of the assistant neutrons and deputy neutrons exchange places.

In fact, Governmentium's mass will actually increase over time, since each reorganisation will cause more morons to become neutrons, forming isodopes.


This characteristic of moron promotion leads some scientists to believe that Governmentium is formed whenever morons reach a critical concentration. This hypothetical quantity is referred to as critical morass.

When catalysed with money, Governmentium becomes Administratium, an element that radiates just as much energy as Governmentium since it has half as many peons but twice as many morons.  

All of the money is consumed in the exchange, and no other byproducts are produced.

You definitely should start a new thread on that topic.

Thank you wink! But I see governmentium isn't everlasting, while iridium is (no chemical or atomic activity) . An important progress would be to make governmentium everlasting. In the future, maybe...

post #2823 of 6679

A long lasting isotope of governmentium would be dictatorium or oligarchium, because you could not vote it out of office.

Administratium is also long lasting because it continues to exist even when governmentium changes.

Does anyone know what the white jack is for on some BHSE? Is it for non Stax headphones, or just a different ”color“? Thanks.

It is for white headphones...

 

Actually the white jack is a custom made part, machined from teflon and usually has gold plated contacts inside.

They are for Stax headphones, although in the past the BHSE was offered with a Senn HE-90 jack as an option.

Thank you. White headphones... very funny!

 

Does anyone who has both jacks can share with us the difference in sound? Or do people get it for something else? Is this custom made part expensive and worth the price difference? It seems that lots of people go for it, judging by the pictures of the BHSE available on the web. 

post #2828 of 6679

afaik, there are no white teflon sockets for the BHSE - theyre all HE90 jacks. 

 

while Justin and others have made white custom jacks for DIY use, I dont think Justin has ever offered them for the BHSE

That was my first thought, that they were HE90 jacks.  Thank you.

 

Since we are on the jack topic, I am curious to know (and eager to find out for myself in a few months of course) whether the BHSE is powerful enough to aliment the 007 and the 009 at the same time (I am afraid that my right ear might find the 009 a little “too bright” while my left ear definitely finds the 007 a little “dark”!) without noticeably impairing sound quality. 

post #2830 of 6679

plenty power to run them both, but since their sensitivities are so different, the 009 will be blasting out your ears by the time you have the 007 at a listening volume

Oh, that is too bad. I thought I could listen to music with my wife using both aforementioned headphones. I supposed that using the 009 (for me!) and the 303 (sic!) with the BHSE will also lead to some problems, right? I just cannot afford buying another 009.... Do you have any idea what would be a good pairing with the 009? SR-507 perhaps?

satorarepotenet,

 

One way to listen to both the 009's and 007's at the same volume would be to put cotton wool in ears when using the 009's, I once had the 007's but now have the 009's and out of curiosity I listened to them via my BHSE with and without the cotton wool and was able to increase the volume quite a bit when using cotton wool, I found though in doing that the 009's sounded veiled.

Did the bass sound wooly like the Beats?

Probably not a good option then. I may have to sell the 007 and try something else. I wonder how the 303 fairs with the BHSE! Should it be absolutely out of the question? For me it certainly is, but perhaps my wife would be fine with it... Well, a pair of 507 might be the way to go. 

 

In the last picture that Justin posted here the BHSE was seen with the 009 and the 507. Does anyone had a chance to listen to both earphones with the BHSE? I wonder whether the same volume problem arises with those two as well. Probably less so than with the 007, right?

post #2835 of 6679

When using with the BHSE, I think some would suggest you sell the 009's rather than the 007's.
