Thats one of my favorites too!!! :)

Take a look at this one: imagine someone taking the time to do this.

I though so too. The things people can do when the mood strikes them is quite amazing.  :)

The equations in the beginning are just the natural consequences of a based-10 number system.

As for when people ask for more than 100%, it annoys the hell outta me.  I guess some people just don't understand that 100% is all there is.  And when speaking about work, even just 98% of what is humanly possible is seldom achieved.

As for the numbering of the letters, I doubt Fetcho would approve.

Lighten up, Yuri...   ;D

Philosophically speaking it means taking that extra step, making that extra effort needed to achieve something in life and relationships. From that perspective I think even Fetcho could not help to agree.

The Known Universe

Full screen is a must!  Enjoy!

Explanation: What would it look like to travel across the known universe? To help humanity visualize this, the American Museum of Natural History has produced a modern movie featuring many visual highlights of such a trip. The video starts in Earth's Himalayan Mountains and then dramatically zooms out, showing the orbits of Earth's satellites, the Sun, the Solar System, the extent of humanities first radio signals, the Milky Way Galaxy, galaxies nearby, distant galaxies, and quasars. As the distant surface of the microwave background is finally reached, radiation is depicted that was emitted billions of light years away and less than one million years after the Big Bang. Frequently using the Digital Universe Atlas, every object in the video has been rendered to scale given the best scientific research in 2009, when the video was produced. The film has similarities to the famous Powers of Ten video that has been a favorite of many space enthusiasts for a generation.

interesting that what appears to be a torsion field (two opposed vortices) shows up at the 3 min mark.

Party in Stomach


In future embed... or don't bother posting. The post will be removed. This request has been made repeatedly and to continually ignore that request constitutes either disrespect or plain laziness.

How hard is it to embed a youtube vid? We will toast posts that are mere links. Read the banner/newsfader once in awhile Mel.

All that needs to be done is to put [ html] in front and  [ /html] (minus the extra space I added after the leading bracket) at the end of the embed code... I hope you are not trying to enclose the link? And I have to ask... what browser are you using? What version?

Logistics Humor

I stumbled across this and it made me laugh. If you've ever wondered
how freight gets damaged this ought to clear things up for you.
I am not sure about the Arabic subtitles but it is very funny.

Enjoy!

Truth extends beyond the border of self-limiting science. Free discourse among opposing viewpoints draws the open-minded away from the darkness of inevitable bias and nearer to the light of universal reality.
