I was at Blackpool Illuminations 2 nights ago. I saw a bunch of kids (about 5 or 6 years old)dressed as Darth Maul. I thought "Cool! Mini Mauls!" :lol:

I wish to introduce a new (extra) meaning for the word 'muddle'. My meaning would be- A muddy puddle. This would save time during speech. I also thought the word 'steeps' could be used for steep steps / stairs.

This thread reminds me of Youtube comments for popular videos.

Also, I think the modulo operator (%) is quite useful in computer puzzle solving.

Windows 8 Developer Preview is neat, yet stupid. I can't even figure out how to exit one of the full screen apps without killing the process in task manager! :?

Anybody ever heard of the term "same difference" ? It is usually used after two separate things are explained that are similar and someone then says "same difference" in the same context that you would say "same thing". I think this is really pointless. If you are going to say "same difference" wouldn't you be referring to multiple differences between things? Someone would have to be comparing at least 3 different things in order for "same difference" to make any sense.

Why are some oranges yellow?

What comes after 'z'?
Why does the sky not smell like fish?
Do you believe in ghosts?

Wow, I can't believe I didn't figure that out after slamming on the keyboard trying to get it to do something...
Microsoft could at LEAST have made an exit button somewhere on one of the pull-up menus so that people didn't have to guess what to do...

Why is the Doctor never ginger? That would be awesome. Also, I think an African-American ginger Jewish female lesbian regeneration would be interesting.

Light always travels at the speed of light relative to any observer, regardless of where he is and how fast he's moving.

The light would travel at the speed of light relative to each individual observer, regardless of whether he's in the car, on the ground, or wherever.


The driver of the car next to you would probably freak out a bit :shock:

Nah, that's relativity. He'd see you driving along with your headlights on.

The Tupperware breaks because the Mini Mauls fell into a muddle, which was actually made of mustard on raisin toast. The Mini Mauls were looking through popular YouTube videos, the reason being the dwarf shortage lately has caused twisted puzzle-designers who hit the windows key while parking on a driveway. Anyways, the twisted puzzle-designers had no orange lanyards so Princess Peach made friends with Mario for some reason, while Luigi finally found his mosaic cube. But unfortunately the mosaic cube was gaurded by a kind-of cool Minotaur, who was protecting it from corn-cracking Jimmy and the ginger Doctor with 8.5 lives. The Dale Farm travellers finally made friends with Mr. Green who...

OK never mind, I got this far already.

Who discovered that we could drink milk from cows and goats? How about the discovery of cheese, cream cheese, sour cream, butter, and yogurt? Dairy is such a mystery...If you think about it, it seems odd that someone thought to himself "Hey, let's try to drink this stuff that comes out of a cow", and someone else had old milk that turned "sour" and was maybe bouncing around and various people saw their milk change states into various stages of lumpiness, then still decided to eat it. Seems to me that it is too gross to have happened by accident, but too difficult to realize that these products are possible without more advanced technology (like hundreds of years ago)...

Haha, bit of a Calvin and Hobbes reference? :lol:

By chance, how do you suppose a newborn baby gets milk? The two are linked - many animals, humans included, nurse because of the nutrients they receive from the foods they eat - cows eat grass, their body turns it to milk for their baby cows. Humans, noticing this, finally put the pieces together that cows and goats have that function - to create drinkable, healthy milk that humans can also use.

As for the cheese, you've got me stumped.

I'm thinking more along the lines of the need to relieve the pain.

Light always travels at the speed of light relative to any observer, regardless of where he is and how fast he's moving.

False. That would mean light is travelling at twice the speed of light... light travels at a constant speed in each element, in this case, emptyness. So technically, light would (excluding curves), compensate where the headlights are, and would not be useful unless the driver slows down ad sees a big bright ball of light in front of him. That would be sweet :D

No, light travels at a fixed speed relative to each and every individual observer. The apparent contradiction that you are talking about, when two observers travel at different speeds, is resolved by the fact that space and time expand and dilate according to an observer's velocity.

So when I say "light always travels at the speed of light relative to any observer, regardless of where he is and how fast he's moving", by definition that means no observer could ever conclude that "light is travelling at twice the speed of light" (as you say they would).
