A challenge for you, sci. You have 5 minutes to compute a numerical value, correct within 10%, of the following integral:
(I don't care if you take more than 5 minutes, but if you're good, you can do it. I got it in a bit more, and I had to look up a -famous- formula on the web)

Ok /sci/, I have a hypothesis. Before the Big Bang, gravity surrounded the existing Universe which was subatomic, and was pushing in toward the dense point of matter. When the thermal pressure inside the dense point reached a maximum energy, it exploded into the area of gravity that surrounded it in all dimensions and therefore made the early Universe contain an extreme and high-magnitude temperature. While the Universe continues its expansion over time, it starts to organize in dense areas where gravity can have an influence. This typically began with massive clusters that collapsed on themselves and formed supermassive black holes, which then as a consequence, pulled in surrounding cosmic matter around themselves. This process generated an outstanding amount of heat in the early galaxies as they accreted, which as a result took matter and organized the "energy" in certain areas of the Universe on the grand scale. As the Universe is still expanding from the initial momentum, natural negative temperatures are created in the process because of very cold regions that now existed as a result of more space being created and matter being organized into galaxies (thus letting the temperatures get cooler in many zones). These negative temperatures are the hottest systems in the world, and have enough power to generate a force that counteracts the gravitational force pulling inward. Now why is the Universe accelerating? It is because of these negative temperatures that induce a spacial effect on the edges of the Universe where it can reach below absolute zero, and that drives the expansion of the Universe. The process is similar to what happens when a star explodes, except negative temperatures aren't created.
