there is no evidence that can prove or disprove infinite universes. It's less of a scientific theory and more of a neat idea.

Junk foods have high concentrations of certain amino acids which can be converted in the body to neurotransmitters. These are chemicals which pass messages between nerves. If an excess of these chemical messengers should accumulate, then too many messages are being transmitted in the brain, leading to the disruptive behavior observed in susceptible individuals. (ex: american children, americans, etc)

Molecules vibrate more the hotter they get, so when liquid water is heated to a certain point, the molecules vibrate so strongly that they break the bonds that hold each other together. Without these bonds, the molecules float freely into the air as vapor.

I'm a mathematician, but looking at a lot of important PDE's from mathematical physics I noticed that a lot of them (for example, Laplace, Poisson, Helmholtz, wave, diffusion, scalar potential, Klein-Gordon, Shrödinger) are linear equations.

Can someone give some physical reason as to why?

>>8322515
Because physicists are sexist and only study straight pole linear equations where feminine curved equations are ignored.
