Laws, Laws, Laws and more Laws


For those who know me, you must know how much i dislike laws and rules. I dispense with gaming rules and make others up on the fly at a whim's notice. 

I've never found the dictum that there are 'laws of physics' as all-encompassing to be quite convincing. neither have these folks. Touche. 

A team of astrophysicists based in Australia and England has uncovered evidence that the laws of physics are different in different parts of the universe. The report describes how one of the supposed fundamental constants of Nature appears not to be constant after all. Instead, this 'magic number' known as the fine-structure constant -- 'alpha' for short -- appears to vary throughout the universe.
