Pakistani Vs Indian Joke
A pakistani is having breakfast one morning; coffee, croissants, bread, butter & jam when a indian man, chewing gum, sits down next to him. The pakistani ignores the indian who, nevertheless, starts a conversation:
Indian : "You pakistani folks eat the whole bread??"
pakistani (in a bad mood): "Of course."
Indian: (after blowing a huge bubble) "We don't. In india, we only eat what's inside. The crusts we collect in a container, recycle it, transform them into croissants and sell them to pakistan.
The indian has a smirk on his face. The pakistani listens in silence.
The indian persists: "Do you eat jam with the bread??"
pakistani : "Of Course."
indian : (cracking his gum between his teeth and chuckling). "We don't. In india we eat fresh fruit for breakfast, then we put
all the peels, seeds, and leftovers in containers, recycle them, transform them into jam and sell the jam to pakistan ."
The pakistani then asks: "Do you have *** in india ?"
indian : "Why of course we do", the indian says with a big smirk.
pakistani : And what do you do with the ***doms once you've used them?"
indian : "We throw them away, of course."
pakistani : "We don't. In pakistan , we put them in a container, recycle them, melt them down into chewing gum and sell them to india.
I think we should interpret these loop divergences,
not as a break down of the supergravity theories,
but as a break down of naive perturbation theory.
In gauge theories, we know that perturbation theory breaks down at strong coupling.
In quantum gravity, the role of the gauge coupling,
is played by the energy of a particle.
In a quantum loop one integrates over… So one would expect perturbation theory, to break down.
