Yes, because they’re MHC compatible.
A perfect number is one that equal to the sum of it’s positive proper divisors. 1,2,3 are the proper divisors of 6, and 1+2+3=6.
You are my 6, Ms.Gallium.
[Basically, one of my readers asked why does your heart hurt when you experience negative emotion[s], and are there actual scientific explanations for it?]
This is a great inquiry, so great, in fact, I’m going to share it on my blog for others to read as well. Surprisingly enough, there actually are scientific and medical reasons as to why, when one experiences heart-break or a more negative emotion, one can feel a very real pain in or around their heart.
Although some say the direct connection between emotional social-loss or heartbreak and the physical ache around one’s heart is still not fully understood, there have been many studies in the recent years that give us some good insight as to why this phenomena happens to many of us in a very real, and very painful way.
Pain is a way the mind responds to trouble in one’s body, so the same is true for emotions, this is basically your body attempting to learn about and resolve the emotional toll of “heart break” or societal rejection. When one feels secluded, or experiences loss in the social sense, the brain’s blood flow changes so that the anterior cingulate cortex’s [which regulates physical pain distress] activity becomes heightened in response. This is also seen in people with depression, or who have experienced extreme stress. It’s even been suggested that depression tends to influence artery walls enough physically to cause them to literally thicken.
Many people have experienced very real, very physical symptoms due to social loss and/or heartbreak including “loss of appetite, insomnia, headaches, stomachaches, nausea, a ton of tears, occasional nightmares, alcohol/substance abuse, depression, eating disorders, panic attacks, loss of interest, fatigue, loneliness, and hopelessness.” via Science 2.0
“Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy is a sudden temporary weakening of the myocardium, producing something similar to a heart attack. When the body becomes overwhelmed, primarily due to stress, hormones such as metanephrine and normetanephrine are released in excess with addition to proteins such as neuropeptide Y, brain natriuretic peptide, and serotonin.
‘Our hypothesis is that massive amounts of these stress hormones can go right to the heart and produce a stunning of the heart muscle that causes this temporary dysfunction resembling a heart attack,’ says cardiologist Ilan Wittstein, M.D., an assistant professor at The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and its Heart Institute. ‘It doesn’t kill the heart muscle like a typical heart attack, but it renders it helpless.’ ” via Science 2.0
“Recent studies show that even experiencing emotional pain on behalf of another person—that is, empathy—can influence our pain perception. And this empathy effect is not restricted to humans. In 2006 a paper published in Science revealed that when a mouse observes its cage mate in agony, its sensitivity to physical pain increases. And when it comes into close contact with a friendly, unharmed mouse, its sensitivity to pain diminishes.” via Scientific American
There are also suggestions that a variation in certain human genes [specifically the mu-opioid receptor gene aka OPRM1] causes some people to be more sensitive to social rejection or heartbreak, thus providing these people with a larger sense of “physical” pain within the heart. They is also more evidence within these people’s brains of heightened distress in response to social rejection.
“Professor Eisenberger said this overlap in the neurobiology of physical and social pain makes perfect sense. Se said: “Because social connection is so important, feeling literally hurt by not having social connections may be an adaptive way to make sure we keep them. Over the course of evolution, the social attachment system, which ensures social connection, may have actually borrowed some of the mechanisms of the pain system to maintain social connections.” via the Telegraph
I *have* done this. right down to the using Euler’s identity.
Me and my fiance do shit like this to people ALL the time. We meet people (online dating sites and IRL) and start talking about differential geometry, or I’ll take an innuendo, spin it to involve my balls, Tell them how they’re hairy and I can’t comb them, and then explain the hairy ball theorem to them and be like “yay algebraic topology!”

My fiance is studying for her final exam in immunology and watching her study/knowing she’s studying/going to her lectures with her is soooo hot to me.
Later, I’m going to combine it with a bit of light subbing and sit at the bottom of my bed while she reads her textbook and kiss and pet her legs/feet a bit, then after, kiss up her legs and well, you can figure out the rest I’m sure. Maybe I’ll tell her about differentiable manifolds or strangeness production in Pb-Pb ion collisions at √7 TeV
Why is intelligence, and specifically SCIENCE (no fucking arts and humanities shit plz) so very very arousing?
This goes out as a request to find a solution for the Brödinger equation for a broton in a simple bromonic oscillator.
The desired solution increases linearly starting from a zero-broint energy of 1/2 times h-bro bromega. The solutions can be found using the raising and lowering bromitian operators or analytically using a bro-series method; the brofunctions end up being bromalized Bromite brolynomials.

ps I ignored charge cas it doesn’t even lift.
I, on the other hand, am drank as fuck and just solved Schrodonger’s equation, so cum on me, bro.
Interdisciplinary program between physics and psychology
Sounds like an excellent use of psychology students to me. Maybe we can get medical students in on this too, and they can work on trauma resuscitation in poly-trauma blunt injuries. :)
Just returned from a visit to the LHC at CERN in Switzerland. I was lucky enough to go down into one of the caverns.
Behold the CMS detector, the most beautiful and impressive thing I have ever seen. The pictures really don’t do it justice.
That made my dick twitch just a little.
