In particle physics, a hermetic detector (also called a 4π detector) is a particle detector designed to observe all possible decay products of an interaction between subatomic particles in a collider by covering as large an area around the interaction point as possible and incorporating multiple types of sub-detectors. They are typically roughly cylindrical, with different types of detectors wrapped around each other; each detector type specializes in particular particles so that almost any particle will be detected and identified. Such detectors are called “hermetic” because they are designed to let as few particles as possible escape; the name “4π detector” comes from the fact that such detectors are designed to cover nearly all of the 4π steradians of solid angle around the interaction point. --Wikipedia:Hermetic_detector



Pedantrous Modernism

Real Life Comics hits the nail on the head:



In collitch, I my major was eventually defined as “English, with a concentration in Critical Theory”. Which meant that I didn’t hit enough of the lit courses to fit the normal requirements, but that I had definitely taken a lot of departmental classes, and that each semester had been approved by the department head.


So much of that critical theory stuff [the parts that ended up creating the “PC” “movement” and enabling people to ban certain forms of speech] made me nervous.... but I LOVED the language. It’s sheer poetry. Sound poetry, devoid of serious semantic content.



Academia here I come!

John Searle once told me about a conversation he had with the late Michel Foucault: “Michel, you’re so clear in conversation; why is your written work so obscure?” To which Foucault replied, “That’s because in order to be taken seriously by French philosophers, twenty-five percent of what you write has to be impenetrable nonsense.” I have coined a term for this tactic, in honor of Foucault’s candor: eumerdification.

Many of the comments on the source page, as well as the source of the comments on the source page, are good and bad “attacks” on post-modernistic theory in practice. Or something. Whatever this stuff is called these days.



Decoder vs Detector

Well, to detect, you would need to be able to decode, no?


Hrm. not really. You’d only need to be able to detect a difference in pattern, not the decoded meaning behind the pattern.


Ouch. Hrm. I’m using these things interchangeably.


One caveat in my favor - a lack of intellectual rigour is okay in art. Sometimes.

I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and extremely broad for me.

Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google Page Rank? or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword....wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple Wordpress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. <a href=“ sites)”>Seo Plugin</a>
