Principle of Adipose Conservation
« on: 09/04/2009 01:01:41 »
I have a theory that there exists a law which I have loving call the 'fat stays' law. The conservation of adipose law states that the total adipose tissue is a constant. Therefore, if someone loses fat, then someone must gain fat. The particle that mediates the 'fat' force is the porkon. Porkons involve an inverse square force.

Examples of the principle:
1. Your room mate goes on a diet and you pick up a stone or two
2. Obesity runs in families since the ability to shed is related to the square of the distance
3. Skinny people hang out together since they reside in low porkon fields
4. Destruction of whales populations correlates with increased fatness of human populations
5. Pork rinds leads to high porkon flux densities

In quantum mechanics you can borrow energy from the vacuum, but only for a short time. The amount you can borrow is inversely proprtional to the time you can borrow it.
By analogy, I would like tyo propose that you can lend porkons to the vacuum, but they make their way back after some time interval.
As evidence for this I propose that the increase in rates of obesity in humans corresponds to the reduction of obesity caused when the (very fat) dinosaurs died out, but subject to a time delay of somethink like 70MY.
I leave it to those with better maths skills than me to calculate the equivalent of Planck's constant for this system.
The good news is that you can eat what you like- the dinos are dead so we are all going to put theweight on anyway.

That's brilliant Bored Chemist. That is an effect I had not considered.
