Nuclear Pasta in neutron stars

Published September 16th, 2018 by Bobby Henderson

Scientists in Portugal have found spaghetti-like structures in neutron stars, showing more evidence of His Noodly Appendage at work:

About a kilometer below the surface of a neutron star, atomic nuclei are squeezed together so close that they merge into clumps of nuclear matter, a dense mixture of neutrons and protons. These as-yet theoretical clumps are thought to be shaped like blobs, tubes or sheets, and are named after their noodle look-alikes, including gnocchi, spaghetti and lasagna. Even deeper in the neutron star, the nuclear matter fully takes over. The burnt-out star’s entire core is nuclear matter, like one giant atomic nucleus.

Nuclear pasta is incredibly dense, about 100 trillion times the density of water.

      You aren’t a very nice person and for you to say fuck y’all to our beliefs you don’t deserve the beer volcano and stripper factory and don’t come crying to the FSM when you come to realization that you werre the one who messed up.

        Chad, one of the Joys of FSM Hell is that one may repent at any time. However, some reprobate fundies (Fred Phelps, Ted Haggard, Kunt Hovind, Patroller, etc.) may be so used to STD’s and bartenders pissing in their beer, that they feel at home and remain by choice.

    Dear Pasta reader, for your amusement, I have completed the Holy Bible and would like to offer Eschaton: The Final Revelation which you can download as a pdf.

    Eschaton is the last revelation to be appended to the Holy Bible, and despite a modest degree of darkness, it foretells an end times that might be considered to have a happy ending.

    Synopsis – ESCHATON: The Final Testament – (or how Faith conquered Knowledge)
    A contemporary Adam and Eve, along with an engaging devil, Luci, are commissioned by God to execute His plan to corral knowledge and return all earth’s sinful souls to Eden – (or, more likely, for most of us, to hell). Luci agrees to His plan because she clearly sees much to gain from the destruction of knowledge.
    The extraordinarily complex (and culture-specific) plan for destroying knowledge requires global cooperation and mind conditioning followed by infection of the entire world’s populace by the ignorance virus (IV).
    Luci’s far-ranging surrogates and the elaborate technological system she finances ultimately works to rid mankind of knowledge – whereupon modern Adam and Eve receive a heavenly reward for their infamy.
    Independent of this sinister drama, a young couple, Knowledge and Mary, meet, marry and pursue an idyllic, self-sacrificing life. They are the kernels of love, knowledge and beauty, intent on bringing peace and harmony to the world. Their role will prove crucial to the overall narrative of the final reckoning after Knowledge, an atheist, becomes separated from Mary during the Eschaton.
