A Darwinist commenter here is rather paranoid about me and is on the verge of stalking. He makes these random judgements about what I should write and if I don’t write what he thinks I should write, then I’m obviously not who I say I am. He also makes judgements about what I should know and then simply decides that I don’t know what I should – without even asking – and declares that I am not who I say I am. To test his theory, he proposed that I break copyright law, which is especially ironic considering that you’d think that he would know, being a published scholar and all, that one can not simply post other people’s journal articles on a personal blog. This, of course, hurts his credibility – turn about is fair play – because I have no idea that he is the person he says he is.
Anyway, to prove that I do have access to journals, I thought I would describe a figure from a paper – in the Journal of Applied Physics – I found that I think no one else here will find interesting. It’s by Chern, et. al. and features magnets. Figure 1 (a) shows a circle with arrows going around it in a CCW fashion in multiple layers. Figure 1 (b) and (c) are much the same with the arrows going in different directions and patterns. Riveting stuff, this is. Perhaps our Darwinist commenter can tell us how many times this boring paper has been cited? If he can conduct himself in a civil manner, then I’ll allow his post to clear the moderation filter and he can give us all this information. So, how about it, Oleg? And, how’s Baltimore this time of year?
