If I have to die in a vehicular accident, I want this to be involved. I don't care if I'm not on it, I just want it to be there.

Well, if you'd stop grinding to rank up useless mods, that wouldn't be such a problem. Not that the Warframe grind will ever stop, but still.

Yes, our current models of physics don't work for the Big Bang, but we aren't even able to properly consolidate quantum mechanics and the version used in everyday life, or general and special relativity. All the sets of rules we have work perfectly well at their scale, but we cannot yet figure out how to change between those scaleswithout breaking the maths and having things stop working, like how in quantum physics mass and gravity come from particles while in standard mechanics they... aren't. With the incredibly unusual circumstances of the Big Bang, and no real way to replicate it (though the Large Hadron Collider has helped, and taught us about that mass particle, the Higgs-Boson) it's no surprise that we don't yet know what happened.
But that's why we research it. Not because we know, not because it is easy to know. Because it intrigues us for being so hard to know, and gives us such strange, weirdly useful information.

Just from looking at the comment chain here, @sublimegamer, you seem to have asked about what happened before and during the Big Bang. While there isn't a scientific consensus that I am aware of and can recall, potentially due to being sick for the entirety of the astrophysics portion of my Physics class, I do know of evidence that the Big Bang did in fact happen. It's called Cosmic Background Microwave Radiation, and is a constant microwave radiation throughout the universe that corresponds (if memory serves) to something like 7.3 kelvin. This, and the much greater amount of Helium in the universe than could have been produced by stars in the entire lifetime of the universe, are just some of the evidence that physicists have for the Big Bang occurring. This is just the simple stuff that a high school student who could only read the PowerPoints for the unit at his school could remember, even if it was IB Physics HL.

It's honestly a shame that the closest thing we've had to a space agency for so long is a museum in Woomera to when we worked with the Japanese space agency out there.

The illustrations of the swan and the baboon are taken from the second half of a book called All Yesterdays, the first half of which is filled with much more speculative illustrations of dinosaurs than normal, while the second half is as if a future alien civilization came across fossils of animals that live now and drew them like we draw dinosaurs.
For instance, the way one particular dinosaur is often drawn: https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/9/9d/Leaellynasaura_BW.jpg
And the way they are drawn in All Yesterdays: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-vcoBhVWcAXs/ULGkMMfVlwI/AAAAAAAAATI/zZtP51ptxho/s400/ay_leaellynasaura.jpg
Of course, the latter is not terribly likely to be accurate, but the point is that we could afford to not shrink-wrap dinosaurs and think of what their squishy, non-skeletal bits may have looked like.

btw my favourite order of birds is caprimulgiformes; there are some cool-yet-weird-looking birds in there, such as the potoo.

Mate, once again, I'm shortening, simplifying and attempting to recall information from a book I read at least four years ago, though now that I think about where I read it six may be more accurate. I could be relaying completely false information due to how it's filtered through my worldview and how poor my memory generally is. Besides, if my memories ARE correct, the book's connections are between how the modern world is the most information-dense environment in history and how those who can adapt well to that can thrive, not connecting endearing nerds to those whose lives are ruined by a maladjustment of their own brain.

And I am actually on the autism spectrum myself, so I should know a thing or two about it. I'm not saying that all people on the ASD are nerds (which I will admit was a terrible way to word that, and was a response to how the book presents itself) and acknowledge that there are many terrible effects that are experienced by those with low-functioning autism.

I'm recalling something I read about four years ago and then shortening what I do remember, so I could have given you the wrong idea about "short circuiting." Besides, most of the book was about how nerds, who consist a large part of the ASD population, are coming out on top of today's society when compared to the physical characteristics that were so important previously.

I remember reading in a book called Unnatural Selection (written by Mark Roeder, since apparently there are a bunch of books with that title) that there is a theory that it's a response to the high-information-density nature of the modern world that, in the way that the brain's response to anything can, often goes a little off the deep end of the adaptation that the brain is trying to make.
