Covalent writes "Scientists suggest that the early universe could be better understood by considering its viscosity which, as it turns out, was similar to that of chocolate syrup. Researchers claim to be able to use this approach (along with as yet unavailable measurements) to determine precisely how inflation took place in the instants after the Big Bang.
Green cheese, the Milky Way... Now chocolate syrup. The universe is a complicated but delicious place!"
(Different AC here)
I don't usually reply to the ACs, but it's SN now, so maybe it's time for a new paradigm.
Actually, the paradigm was already wrong on /. — you should post whenever you think your answer might benefit other readers, even if you suspect the OP might never read it.
And BTW, I also have an account on SN, but I use it only from my own computer.
