The 10^31 years in the title text is a clear reference to the proton decay, with the proton expected to have a half-life between 10^31 and 10^36 years. But so far no evidence for this decay has been found, which is incompatible with the results given by various unified theories. So Cuarón is preventing the unification of this comics' fundamental forces of nature like the proton is preventing GUTs. (Also, even the physics part has several layers of unification, the current one, GUTs, and TOEs) 11:23, 16 February 2018 (UTC)

I know this isn't the place for it.. but.. why not Lincoln's and Washington's birthdays? It is literally President's Day weekend. That's right, Jacky720 just signed this (talk | contribs) 22:00, 16 February 2018 (UTC)


Where is the unification of Marvel with Disney as well? I know, if you put in all the companies that Disney has merged with/bought over the years, it would take up way more room than the comic will allow. Nutster (talk) 14:50, 16 February 2018 (UTC)

I think Randall missed "The Force" and "Midi-chlorians"! Neurozero (talk) 17:07, 16 February 2018 (UTC)

We have a statutory holiday in British Columbia called Family Day; it is on the second Monday of February. Other provinces have a similar holiday, though some with different names, on the third Monday of February. Alberta, the province next to British Columbia calls theirs Family Day. My joke has been that they should split the different and have Family Day on Valentine's Day. Apparently, though, British Columba will be changing the observance of Family Day to the third Monday in February: another unification. 23:34, 17 February 2018 (UTC) Gene Wirchenko [email protected]

Which came first? The Proton or the Universe? These Are Not The Comments You Are Looking For (talk) 17:49, 20 February 2018 (UTC)

The Universe, but not by much. The first protons should have appeared somewhere in the first 10-6 seconds. Nutster (talk) 06:04, 21 February 2018 (UTC)

I personally would be scared of a unification of the two Germanys and Strong Force 04:29, 30 May 2018 (UTC) (Anonymous)

Shouldn't this be an incomplete explanation? There are empty table cells. Nitpicking (talk) 00:40, 14 June 2022 (UTC)

As you're back with another point (below)., there are no empty table cells (nor were there, as you wrote this). 12:53, 16 February 2023 (UTC)

Hmm ... "The same type of tanks have been used to detect neutrinos." Actually, if I recall, it's not the same type of tanks, it's the very same tanks. For example, the Super-Kamiokande detector in Japan is mostly known for detecting neutrinos, but has also been used to search for proton decay. Nitpicking (talk) 12:38, 16 February 2023 (UTC)
