Oh Armok no, not EU. Please tell me...

...just to make sure, is this electrical or magnetic? The former is utterly nonsensical (neutral charges for all known macroscopic naturally-occuring celestial bodies), the latter is at least hypothetically possible.

Also, the Earth formed in about 10-100 million years. It's been roughly 4.4 billion years since, and that has nothing to do with the ETA of Andromeda. (Also, no stars will actually collide; there'll just be a bunch of stars strewn about, and then life goes on and the galaxies go their own way, somewhat slower than before.)

What's "EU"?
It's a collection of stars on a flat plane that may or may not collide with each other in the future, depending on some farmer's Unified Fields. There's also multiple pulling strings theories.

Expanded Universe. It was non-canon before, but it's especially non-canon now that Disney has bought the rights to the universe.

It's electric universe. Look up Thunderbolts Project. Or don't - might give you a brain aneurysm, depending on how well you paid attention during high school physics classes.

Great, first I come in here to make sure folks had heard the sad news about Glenn, then I see EU being discussed and I'm reminded of how goddamn frustrating it was encountering a nest of anti-relativist EU believers.

No, x2yzh9, there is nothing to learn there except how not to propose a hypothesis or how to improperly claim falsification of a theoretical framework. As mentioned above, the insanity of treating electromagnetism as though it had lagrange orbits like gravity does is painful.

Euler-Lagrange points are due to gravity operating on systems which can be closely approximated as three-body systems.

EM use of the term Lagrangian relates to something else, which is full of really pretty mathematics: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lagrangian_(field_theory) and the world would be a much better place if EU morons spent more time actually studying rather than sitting around getting high by zapping their parietal lobe with a cattle prod or something else which would explain the stupidity that emerges from those beliefs.

After looking up what the parietal lobe does and functions I am extremely angry(not at anyone here). Who in gods Quintilianth dimension thought that could possibly be a good idea?

I'm not saying they do that... at least I'm not sure they do it, it was just an example of something stupid that might get across how bad the arguments used by EU supporters are, and hinting that brain damage would be a more comforting explanation than the thought that these people actually believe that nonsense.
