Re: 0971: "Alternative Literature"

Re: 0968: "Everything"

Re: 843: "Misconceptions"

It is a common misconception that seasons are caused by the Earth being closer to the Sun in the summer than in the winter. What. I'm sure you already knew this but it's because the different hemispheres are close to the sun at different times. For example right now the northern hemisphere is leani...

Re: Our Brains Are Shrinking. Are We Getting Dumber?

I had the impression that most of the "meat" of the brain had nothing to do with intelligence or vital motor functions ect. but rather insulation/padding to protect such important stuff? Maybe I'm just completely off-base and should refrain from commenting on something I don't know much of...

Re: Artificial Singer: Sold Out Concerts

Also, I thought we had already developped ways to produce music artifically? Do musicians still exist anymore? Please tell me this is just a joke about auto-tune and not something you actually thought. Yes, it was a joke. I am not particularly aware of the development status of artificial instrumen...

So are they going to rename it or are they going to keep it to remind people of actually checking facts before announcing stuff? Heck the name itself is and has always been absolutely ridiculous imo

Re: "Dimensional Analysis" discussion

My favorite part is that you can tell Randall's a mathematician and not an engineer because he's writing on a chalkboard, not a whiteboard. Actually might just be because he's teaching children. I presume that most schools have chalkboards everywhere. Screw chalkboards. I'm just sad I can't work on...

I can't help but think that this means the women will be wearing leaves/vines/mud/nothing.

Whaa, a great comic that isn't explicitly because of a joke or punchline of sorts? I love it.

How to clean dishes?

Related to this forum? Maybe. I'm trying to start cooking more, getting out of the house and all that, but one of the big turn-offs is cleaning the waste. It's not a particularly unpleasent experience, it's just that I take so god damn long. Two sinks of washing/drying dishes takes me roughly an hou...
