Re: "Revolutionary" Discussion

it doesn't really say how that would actually work. Disclaimer: I'm not really trained in Physics beyond reading a few popular books.

Re: "Revolutionary" Discussion

Special relativity implies time dilation: moving clocks go slower than stationary clocks. Edit: Some people found this unclear, so let me draw a diagram in words. I am standing still. Relative to me, the train is moving left to right at .5c. Relative to the train, the racecar is moving right to lef...

Seeing an opportunity, i googled the lyrics, and made a comment with lyrics from the same song (that I had never heard b...

Re: "Christmas Plans" Discussion

I think we need a public works project to bring the natural phenomena of day length (rotation of Earth about its axis), year length (revolution of Earth about the Sun), and month length (lunar cycle duration) into alignment.

There is also the anyone less intelligent that you is a retard and the anyone more intelligent than you is a show-off / pre...
