That the US Navy only had 4 ships in the entire fleet that it own every bit of, and not leased in the 1980s. This was because the US kept 4 Destroyers that were sold to the Shah of Iran, but were not delivered in time before the students took our embassy personnel hostage for 444 days. So we kept the ships the Shah bought, as part of the package of payback.

Most ships have their reduction gears, the things that take the high speed of the engine down to the much slower speed of the propeller, on 99 year leases from companies such as Westinghouse.

Vinegar can be used to permanently set pleats, or permanently remove unwanted creases (use iron on high steam and hold it on vinegar-coated fabric until all vinegar has evaporated. Wash afterward unless you like smelling like vinegar).

Vinegar will also help set dyes, so if you purchase a deep indigo colored outfit, soak it in a bucket of vinegar overnight and the color will not wear away as quickly...  (handy also for colors that tend to run....)  :D

You know when you wear a ring for a long time and then you stop wearing it and it feels like you're still wearing it? That's called muscle memory. Your muscles are still adjusting to not having constant pressure on them so they try to simulate the feeling until they adapt to not having the ring. It takes about two weeks for this to go away.

Another thing about the Platypus. When it goes underwater it closes its ears, eyes, and nostrils and senses its prey (they eat small animals sometimes) through electrolocation, which menas that the Platypus can sense electrical impulses from muscle contractions. Studies have shown that it is so sensitive that a Platypus could pick up impulses from shrimp.

- The TV show "House" takes place in New Jersey.
- When Tomb Raider was first being created, there was a debate on whether or not Lara should have been a guy; it almost led to the game not being produced at all.
- Lara was originally going to be named Lara Cruz.
- The rumor that "orange" rhymes with no other word is incorrect. Orange rhymes with Blorenge (a mountain in Wales) and sporange (a sac where spores are made). "Silver" has the same rumor going for it, but it actually rhymes with Wilver (a nickname) and chilver (a ewe lamb).
- "Set" has more definitions than any other word in the English language, with 464 different definitions.
- "Cwm" and "crwth" are the only two words in the English language that have no "vowels;" the "w" makes an "oo" sound, as in "doom."

Sporange is an English word, & as for the mountain in Wales, a name is a name, (plus Wales is a part of the U. K., so it works).

As for the Gaelic, that may be where the roots are from, but they are recognized as English words, too.  It's not the first time languages have taken words from each other.

From Star Trek IV, transparent aluminum. We already have this, but we call it sapphire. WE use it as the lenses of missiles that are laser guided. The sapphire is coloered red, so it would then be a ruby, but it can withstand desert sand at 600 mph, and not get a scratch.
We also use it in the manufacture of circuit boards, as it is also radiatoin resistant, good for use in space.
I just think we haven't gotten down the price of manufacturing enough to mass market large applications to the point where it is competitive with lexan and the like.

Nutria were introduced during the 1950s as a form of a home business (aka, raise the animals and sell to companies to make pelts). However the nutria fur market became so saturated, the animals couldn't even be given away. So many escaped and others were released into the wild.

Nutria by the way, are native to South America. When you have Nutria....you will not have Beavers in the NW.

Pi, sure it does, but it is converting over one thousand feet of potential energy into kinetic energy. Plus, like a weather vane, the quarter is going to fall with the least wind resistance over such a long fall, and not fall face up or down. It's still probably doing about 200 mph, and that is more than enough to send a piece of straw clear through a telephone pole, as happens during tornadoes.

Pi, you should stop by Blackjack Fireworks and get a large enough mortar shell that will travel more than 1,000 feet up and will dislodge the quarter from that height, that should work. 'cause I don't think that building is anywhere near high enough. Now to just track the quarter.

That mean you are going to be the slug wrangler?

Ag is silver for argentum, hence the country name, Argetina, little silver.

- Actually, that's half right.  The main reason is because (I'm gonna say this wrong) Oregon has some state laws that makes it illegal for pro athletes to compete if they're on the 'roids.  The WWE argued that, since they're more like athletic actors, the law should not restrict them from competing in Oregon.  Thus, it was allowed for the first time in over 10 years.  They haven't been back much because of what Hawkeye said.

Although it's currently theoretical, one of the most scientifical conclusions to all of life is that the universe is simply going to freeze, thus killing all life. This is called The Big Freeze theory.

This is a scenario in which the universe becomes too cold to sustain life due to continued expansion and the decay of free energy due to the action of entropy. It could occur if the universe's geometry is either flat or hyperbolic, as either of those would mean that the universe would expand indefinitely eventually reaching absolute zero.

If it is hyperbolic, which is usually pictured as a saddle shape, then the density must be lower than the critical density (which is approximately three hydrogen atoms per cubic meter), which means that the universe isn't heavy enough to collapse under gravity. If our Universe is flat, then the density will be exactly at the critical point, preventing the universe from collapsing as well. If the universe is heavier than the critical point, it will result in a shrinking universe, which leads to another theory, called the Big Crunch.

For the Big Crunch to occur, the shape of the Universe would have to be spherical. The problem with measuring the current density of our Universe is that we cannot see most of the matter in it, and it is theorized that most of the universe may be made up of dark matter, a hypothetical, invisible form of matter in space (Which is theorized to be why the night sky is dark).

This is only one of multiple theory's as to the ultimate fate of the universe. If it where to happen, it would probably happen around 150 billion years from now. As of note, our Universe is roughly estimated at just around 13.7 Billion years old.

When Street Fighter II was first made in Japan, 3 of the 4 bosses had different names than what they have here in the States.

Japan        U.S.A.
M. Bison     Balrog
Balrog        Vega
Sagat        Sagat
Vega         M. Bison

The reason for this is because of the boxer.  When the game came to the U.S., they were afraid that they would get sued by Mike Tyson.  Why?  Because they look VERY similar & their names are VERY similar.  So they switched them around so as not to get sued.

Also, noticed how Sagat is the only boss whose name never changes?  The reason for that is because he was the main boss in Street Fighter I.  Changing his name would have been illogical.

Fun with basic thermodynamics!

1 BTU will heat up one pound of water 1 degree F.

A refrigerator ton doesn't weigh anything - it's the rate of refrigeration (heat extraction) needed to freeze one ton of water (32deg F, liquid) into 1 ton of ice (32deg F, solid). This rate works out to be 12,000 BTU/hr, or 3024kcal/hr, or 3516W.

It's abbreviated USRT.

Oh yeah, and a watt-second is a Joule.

QUIZ: Is 1 Joule  = 1 kilogram meter per second, or 1kilogram meter per second SQUARED.

A new fetish cafe in Akihabara called Little TGV features waitresses dressed like train conductors and cocktails named after the Yamanote Line. It's based on the story of a fake rail company called the New Akiba Electric Railroad, and instead of the usual "Welcome home, master" greeting familiar to maid cafe enthusiasts, these women greet you with "Thank you for boarding our train."

Train geekdom is actually a well-established obsession in Japan. So this cafe, though seemingly random, meets a very specific demand.

No.  I've made about a dozen such posts like that one.

- Kurt Vonnegut served in World War I.

- The skin is the largest organ of the human body.  (I don't remember how much skin weighs).

- Hilter's mental state is theorized to be hereditary.  He's had several family members serve time in insane asylums and metnal hospitals and, during his reigh as Fuhrer, he had a couple of his own relatives gassed.

- Taco Bell has a three cheese blend, made up of matzarella, provolone, and cheddar.  This cheese is used for: quesadillas, baja-style chalupas & gorditas, 7-layer burritos, grilled-stuffed burritoes, cheesy gordita crunches, and the cheesy beefy melt.  (There's probably something that I'm forgetting).

- There is a type of cheese called "Chihuahua," and, like almost every type of cheese out there, is named after the place it was made in, the city of Chihuahua, Mexico.

- Cinco de Mayo is NOT Mexico's Independence Day.  Rather, it marks a battle in which Mexico got its ass kicked by the French.  It's more like a time to reflect upon the bravery of the Mexican soldiers who risked their lives to fight a battle that they knew they were going to lose.

- The Japanese have a holiday on May 5 called Children's Day.  Originally called Boy's Day, some of the traditions include flying a carp kite outside of your house and taking your child, at ages 3, 5, or 7, to a temple, giving thanks for their health.

- In the novel Dracula, it is mentioned that one of the repellants against vampires is the flower "carnation."

- In every episode of Friends, the Magna Doodle on the door for Chandler & Joey's apartment would always have a different doodle or message on it.  It eventually became a point to have someone specifically responsible for that alone.

- According to Judith Lipton and David Barash, a pair of MD's who studied sex, the reason so many people commit acts of infidelity is because we "are motivated to ensure their reproductive success not only by picking the highest quality mate they can get but also by taking others on the side."  Apparantly, the only species on the planet that does stay with the same mate 100% of the time is a type of tapeworm found in fish, because they permanantly fuse together.

- In Missouri, single men between the ages of 21 and 50 must pay an annual tax of one dollar.

- In Claremont, New Hampshire, it is illegal to be drunk, picnic in, enter in at night, or be by oneself if under 10, in a cemetary.

- In Oregon, DRIVERS MUST YIELD TO PEDESTRIANS WHO ARE STANDING ON THE SIDEWALK!

- When written out properly, according to the official legal documents, Hawaii is the only state with a name that has some sort of symbol in it.  It has an apostrophe (Hawai'i).

- "Jesus wept" is the shortest verse in the Bible.  It can be located in John 11:35.

- Clark County was the first officially established county in Washington.

- The Trans-Siberian Railway is the longest such railway in the world.  It stretches from Vladivostok to Moscow.  Originally, it was planned to go all the way up to St. Petersburg.

- Recently, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's novel "The Lost World" was reprinted, with the introduction part being written by Michael Chriton, creator of the Jurassic Park series.

- The first Japanese color animation, which is considered to be the first ANIME ever, was released in 1958 as Hakujaden.  It was released in the States in 1961 as Panda and the Magic Serpent.

- The character Lina Inverse got her name for a very specific reason.  Inverse, as most of us know, refers to a reversal in position, order, direction, or tendency.  Lina is Dutch for "Pure."  Therefore, her full name literally means "impure."  This could be a reference to her black magic, or some of her personality traits.

- Vatican City is the smallest country in the world.  It is so small, that the city of Rome circles around it, like a ring.

- If the United States and Canada were to merge into one nation, it would be larger than Russia by about 2.5 million square kilometers.

- There is currently a dispute on whether or not the United States or China is the thrid largest nation.  If you were to include Aksai Chin and Trans-Karakoram Tract, both territories that are currently claimed by India, but not Taiwan, then China is only larger than the US by about 12,000 sq. km.  Without them, the US is larger by about 31,000 sq. km.

- I can only name a few smurfs, Papa Smurf, Baby Smurf, Smurfette, and the one that was used as a joke in an episode of Robot Chicken, Chronic Masterbater Smurf.  Does Gargamel count?

It's possible that some TB's, including mine, will start selling these a day or two early.  I don't know why we do it; we're evil, or stupid, or something like that.  Anyway, just wanted to give you all a heads up in case there haven't been any commercials for these things yet.

That is the coolest food thing I think I've ever heard.


- The Pearl Jam hit "Jeremy" was based off of a real story where the lead singer was still in school & a kid came to school with a gun, pulled it out in front of the class, & killed himself.  Reason - he was always picked on.  The point of the song was him declaring how much he regretted being one of the many who teased him constantly.  (Why couldn't Kip Kinkle have just done that instead of looking like a jack@$$?)
- "Jack the Ripper" was never caught.  To this day, his identity is a mystery.  In fact, there no concrete evidence that it was just one person, only logical clues that hinted at it being one man.  However, it has been proven that some of the other murders of a similar nature in the area/time were done by others, but they were all caught, & plead innocent to the other bunch.
- One person got a letter from "Jack", that included the delivery of a human kidney.

Glass is not a true solid, it's somewhere between a solid and a liquid, also called an amorphous solid. If you look at windows to really old houses (100 years old or more I think) you can see that the bottom of the window is actually thicker than the top because it slowly flows downward. Assuming none of the windows have been replaced of course.

Actually, Gelatin, the substantial component of most Jello products, is made by boiling bones and extracting marrow.  Traditionally, the hooves of farm animals were used for this purpose, but now, most companies use fish bones due to their growing availability in a culture that buys more and more boneless fish.

Random presidential info! (election time is almost here)

Truman never went to collage.

Buchanan never married. Also Oregon became a state when he was president.

Reagan was divorced.

Nixon is the only president to resign.

Harrison was only in office 1 month. He died of pneumonia. The first president to die in office. (not of assassination) The Whig party died with him as well.

Lincoln was the first president to be assassinated and die in office.

Washington's painting of himself is the oldest object in the White House. It has survived 4 fires.

Kennedy was and still the youngest president elected into office. He was also the youngest to die.

John Adams was the first president to live in the White House. Before he left he wrote to his wife "Before I end my letter, I pray Heaven to bestow the best of Blessings on this House and all that shall hereafter inhabit it. May none but honest and wise Men ever rule under this roof." When he died his last words were "Thomas Jefferson lives." Ironically Jefferson died that same day but a couple hours earlier.

Jefferson believed that education is the most important thing in the world, so he created The Library Of Congress.

Carter first said on his Inauguration Day "For myself and for our Nation, I want to thank my predecessor for all he has done to heal our land." He was talking about Ford

One more, a young woman sitting next to Coolidge at a dinner party confided to him she had bet she could get at least three words of conversation from him. Without looking at her he quietly retorted, "You lose."

If you yelled for 8 years, 7 months and 6 days you would have produced enough
sound energy to heat one cup of coffee.
(Hardly seems worth it.)

If you farted consistently for 6 years and 9 months, enough gas is produced to
create the energy of an atomic bomb.
(Now that's more like it!)

The human heart creates enough pressure when it pumps out to the body to squirt
blood 30 feet.
(O.M.G.!)

A pig's orgasm lasts 30 minutes.
(In my next life, I want to be a pig.)

A cockroach will live nine days without its head before it starves to death.
(Creepy.)
(I'm still not over the pig. )

Banging your head against a wall uses 150 calories a hour
(Don't try this at home,   maybe at work)

The male praying mantis cannot copulate while its head is attached to its body.
The female initiates sex by ripping the male's head off.
(Honey, I'm home. What the..?!)


The flea can jump 350 times its body length. It's like a human jumping the
length of a football field.
(30 minutes..lucky pig! Can you imagine?)

The catfish has over 27,000 taste buds.
(What could be so tasty on the bottom of a pond?)

Some lions mate over 50 times a day.
(I still want to be a pig in my next life...quality over quantity)

Butterflies taste with their feet.
(Something I always wanted to know.)

The strongest muscle in the body is the tongue.
(Hmmmmmm......)

Right-handed people live, on average, nine years longer than left-handed
people.
( If you're ambidextrous, do you split the difference?)

Elephants are the only animals that cannot jump.
(Okay, so that would be a good thing)


A cat's urine glows under a black light.
(I wonder who was paid to figure that out?)

An ostrich's eye is bigger than its brain.
( I know some people like that.)

Starfish have no brains
(I know some people like that too.)

Polar bears are left-handed.
(If they switch, they'll live a lot longer)

Humans and dolphins are the only species that have sex for pleasure.

Bonobos have sex for control. They do have sex outside of mating seasonality, but it is for the females to maintain control of the group.

Could or does, that is the question, eh? Muslim women who have been genitally mutilated don't have any. Oh, yeah, that's done for controlling too.

Sex and control, what a world.

Not compleatly true. They also have sex out of boredom. (sounds kinda human there...) And not just Heterosexual sex as well. Anthropologists have linked the Bonobos sexuality with Humans more than any other species of animals. They are also helping us find a link between homosexuality and hetrosexuality in humans. And control isnt the primary gain outside of mating season as they do often partake in homosexual acts, most of the time it is to releive mild social conflicts but mostly tension. The bonobo sex drive is outrageous.

Ha ha ha. Im suprised that someone else knows this. Washougal, have you been taking Anthropology classes?  The female bonobos also have swolen genitals even when they arent fertile and they tend to rub up on other females as well. They are also an animal where age is not an issue. A newborn can be toyed with sexually by an adult and its normal. But a Really interesting fact on the issue is that while Chimpanzies have been observed raping their own kind durring mating season, Bonobos have NEVER been observed raping one another.

*You might be a geek if you know the complex sexual behaviours of the bonobo monkey in compairason to humans...*

*Anthropology is my passion, just out of school for a bit.*

Fresh from my email.

There is one Christmas Carol that has always baffled me.
What in the world do leaping lords, French hens,
swimming swans, and especially the partridge who won't come out
of the pear tree have to do with Christmas?


 

This week, I found out.

From 1558 until 1829, Roman Catholics in England were
not permitted to practice their faith openly. Someone
during that era wrote this carol as a catechism song for young Catholics.
It has two levels of meaning: the surface meaning
plus a hidden meaning known only to members of their church. Each
element in the carol has a code word for a religious reality
which the children could remember.


-The partridge in a pear tree was Jesus Christ.


-Two turtle doves were the Old and New Testaments.



-Three French hens stood for faith, hope and love.

-The four calling birds were the four gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke & John.

-The five golden rings recalled the Torah or Law, the first five books of the Old Testament.

-The six geese a-laying stood for the six days of creation.

-Seven swans a-swimming represented the sevenfold gifts of the Holy Spirit--Prophesy, Serving, Teaching,  Exhortation, Contribution, Leadership, and Mercy.

-The eight maids a-milking were the eight beatitudes.

-Nine ladies dancing were the nine fruits of the Holy Spirit--Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness,  Faithfulness,

 Gentleness, and Self Control.

-The ten lords a-leaping were the ten commandments.

-The eleven pipers piping stood for the eleven faithful disciples.

-The twelve drummers drumming symbolized the twelve points of belief in the Apostles' Creed.

So there is your history for today. This knowledge was shared with me and I found it interesting and enlightening and now I know how that strange song became a Christmas Carol...so pass it on if you wish.'

- Of the seven teams that have currently clinched a spot in this year's playoffs, four of them have never won a Super Bowl title (Tennessee Titans, Arizona Cardinals, Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers).
- Out of these four, only one of them has never been in the Super Bowl (Panthers lost SB38 to Patriots, Titans lost SB34 to Rams, Falcons lost SB33 to Broncos).
- Of the three previous SB winners, the Pittsburgh Steelers have won the most, 5 (9, 10, 13, 14, 40), followed by the New York Giants, 3 (21, 25, 42), then the Indianapolis Colts, 2 (5 as Baltimore Colts, 41).

Hair dryer method

    * locate the general area of the fruit flies and the nearest plug. Get a hair dryer.
    * Plug in the hair dryer, turn it on (preferably to full heat) and put the back end of the dryer near a hovering fly. It will be sucked in and fried by the hair dryer. This is fun and highly effective! Trying to blow at them with the hot air doesn't work well, but sucking them in like this does.

Lol I love this. The ridding of fruit flies.

Something to tie into that is a part of the Christmas tradition that primarily (and from what I understand only) applies to Catholics.

The twelve days of Christmas refers to the Catholic holiday of Epiphany, which is 12 days after Christmas.  According to Catholic tradition, it was twelve days after Jesus' birth that the Three Wise Men found him.

Oh right....facts......early stages of the game Left 4 Dead featured a special infected called the Screamer. He was in a straightjacket and upon seeing the survivors would attempt to run off and if he escaped he would let out a loud scream, summoning the horde. His horde-summoning ability was later changed into the Boomer's vomit and bile attacks. Before that, the only thing the Boomer did was explode and do damage.

The original composition of the theme from Bubble Bobble is in the key of B flat major (Ionian I), although the pickups and ideal hand position for the song on a piano is that of F major.  The song might thus appear to an experienced musician to be in the key of F Major Mixolidian V, but is clearly in fact the B flat Lydian IV scale under further scrutiny.

Your eyeball is attached. O.o...

I sneeze too much.
Am I gunna lose my eyeball? D:

it's attached, but with a certain amount of force of impact, and without eyelids, your eye has a decent probability of popping out. Which is why whenever you sneeze, your eyelids automatically close, because for some reason, sneezing causes a large amount of force. But if you have eyelids that can close, your fine.

Another fact, The reason pokemon can fit inside a pokeball is because the pokeball can turn the pokemon into energy, thus allowing the pokemon to reside in the pokeball without the need for air. The reason it's capable of doing this is because the pokemon has a certain cromizone that give's them these special powers and allows a large majority of them to evolve in a short amount of time. The pokeball is able to hoam in on this one cromozone, thus allowing it to be effective only to pokemon, and as it seem's, all pokemon has this same cromozone in their dna.

There is a shrimp called the Pistol Shrimp (I think that's what it's called) that can shoot a bubble from its claw at amazing speeds. It goes so fast that when it bursts, it exceeds the temperature of the sun for a (very small) fraction of a second and creates a sound somewhere in the neighborhood of 230 decibels! (you might want to read up on it to make sure exactly how it works, I forgot the details)

There is also another shrimp called the Mantis Claw Shrimp that can deliver a punch at over 120 mph! The punch travels so fast and lowers the pressure of the water surrounding the claw so much that it instantly boils the water around it. They have been known to break aquariums with their punches and really mess up peoples' carpets. Now that's what I call a FALCON PUNCH!

Shrimp are amazing.

I hit backspace at least 35 times typing this........I need to go to bed.......and I didn't make any of that up I promise.

People have a very complicated explanation of frowning, most people don't use any muscles when they frown.

HOWEVER

It is a fact that if you used all of the pieces of stage that the Hilton has, we could make a 2 ft tall, 6 ft wide stage that was 304 ft long. More than twice the length of the Main Events room.

RSVP is the acronym for "Respondez s'il vous plait".  This is French for "Respond if you please"  RSVP is a carry over from when French was the International Language.  We still use it today when we want a response from someone and we send them an invitation.  It is surprising how many people don't know what it actually means.  Another good one is SASE for Self Addressed Stamped Envelope.  So if I ask you to RSVP in a SASE. you will know what I mean now, right?   ;D

Who here knows that Goodbye is the abbreviated form of God be with ye?   :o  It's true.

The days of the week are; Sun day, Moon Day, Tyr's Day, Wodan's Day, Thor's Day, Freya Day, and Saturn Day.   :P  I believe Saturn replaced Loki when he fell out of favor.  I think it would be interesting to have a Lokiday.  Maybe it would have changed to Luckyday.  Everyone could use one of those.   ;D

The last two incarnations of Transformers (the Michael Bay movies and the Animated series) have had sets of Autobot twins, but they are only canonically established as twins in their own series time line. Outside of it they most certainly are not.

Contrary to popular belief, the Great Wall of China is not the only man made object on earth that is visible from space; in fact, the Great Wall is barely discernable, and only under perfect conditions. Low earth orbit(160-350 miles up) is the altitude that the space shuttle orbits at. At this "low" level of orbit, many man made objects are viewable to the naked eye, including airports, bridges, dams, and highways. The Wall is only 30 feet wide, and is of a similar color to its surroundings. The myth that "the Great Wall is the only man-made object visible from the moon" started in 1938 when the book "Second Book of Marvels, the Orient" was published, stating that "Astronomers say that the Great Wall is the only man-made thing on our planet visible to the human eye from the moon." Something that is almost invisible at 180 miles certainly isn't visible at 237,000 miles.

MSG can also be called "Hydrolyzed soy protein". In fact, any hydrolyzed protein is considered MSG. Also, if any package says "No MSG" or "No added MSG" then it's probably a lie. Look at the ingredients. If it says monosodium glutemate or has any kind of hydrolyzed protein in it, then it has MSG.

Also, Funyuns (sp?) and most, if not all flavors of Doritos have MSG. Not that I personally care, I love Funyuns and Doritos.

He accidentally knocked a spring off a shelf and it "walked" down the shelves and recoiled itself on the floor. He then thought, "I can make a toy out of this...." And the rest, as they say, is history.

A chunk of pure calcium (sodium does this as well) will explode when placed into water. I watched a video of a guy throwing a chunk of calcium into a pond and it shot straight up and made a sound as loud as a gunshot, came back down into the pond. It kept doing that until the calcium had dissolved. In fact, any mineral that belongs to the far left column of the periodic table will do this. They are known as the alkali metals and all react explosively to water. Waaay cooler than vinegar and baking soda, but also more expensive.

It's because they're not pure calcium. They have other compounds in them that prevent the reaction. At least I'm 99% sure that's why.

A chunk of pure calcium (sodium does this as well) will explode when placed into water. I watched a video of a guy throwing a chunk of calcium into a pond and it shot straight up and made a sound as loud as a gunshot, came back down into the pond. It kept doing that until the calcium had dissolved. In fact, any mineral that belongs to the far left column of the periodic table will do this. They are known as the alkali metals and all react explosively to water. Waaay cooler than vinegar and baking soda, but also more expensive.

Looks at his calcium pill and glass of water...  Puts the calcium pill back in the bottle and closes the cupboard.   ;D

Makes you wonder how your bones and the water in your body get along so well.


And what about clams? Their whole shell is calcium carbonate.

Cesium is the most explosive of the alkali metals. Two grams will blow up your bathtub.
Sodium will catch fire when exposed to water, hence that's why it is stored in oil, to keep the water out.

Go left and down for reactivity, and and up and right too, on the periodic table of elements.

Flourine is the most reactive element of all.

You cannot use iron in the fusion process. Any star that tries, goes nova.

I was watching Myth Busters the other day and they were trying to cook a turkey on a radar dish.  Makes me wonder if they actually put out enough to melt chocolate.  The one expert did state that the power used was much lower than a microwave.  It is possible that after finding the melted chocolate someone was smart enough to figure out that they were being cooked as well.   ;D

In our solar system. around our planet. and somehow that photon ended up not only hitting that tiny telescope, but hitting the exact spot of the light sensor that is only a few inches in area, and that was only pointed in that direction for a few moments." -enotzen

350 ft underwater: Maximum diving depth of a fully grown blue whale, the largest (known) animal on earth.
After 3,280 feet, light can no longer penetrate water.
5,280 feet is one mile.
13,120 feet underwater is called the Abyssal Zone. Water pressure around this level reaches around 11,000 pounds per square inch. Creatures such as the angler fish, the fangtooth, and the flashlight fish can survive at these depths.
20,000 feet underwater is called the Hadal Zone. Pressure levels reach around 16,000 psi, over 1,100 times the pressure on the surface. Although sparse, life exists at these levels.
31,000 feet is the average cruising altitude of the average commercial plane.
36,000 feet: the deepest known part of the ocean, located in Mariana's Trench. Only about ten percent of the ocean floor in this region has been mapped, so there are likely spots that are even deeper.



And that bit of knowledge gives me super heebie-jeebies.

GoodWill does not know how much things are worth.  In the last few weeks, I've encountered a $5 HDMI cable ($25), a $10 power supply ($70), a $25 Pentium III Motherboard (worthless), a $20 set of speakers ($150), and a $20 Nintendo 64 ($15).  Where do they even get their prices? :P

Title: Re: Random Facts That You Know!!!
Post by: The Cow on February 06, 2010, 03:40:27 pm
yep, but if the tester was drunk there's always the possibility that loss of urinary control coincided with testing and that results changed due to that variable.. personally i think if the testee wasn't aware of what test was occuring before sleeping they would not necessarily resist the subconscious urge to urinate. just my hypothesis however.

A working nintendo 64 for is easily worth $50 to me.  The thing is that supply and demand prices it at $15 used without A/V adapter sold as-is no returns...statistically speaking and referencing the particular system in question.

Thing is, I don't have money to spend on N64 games right now, otherwise I'd just go over to Game Trader (a much more reliable and much less corporate source) and get what I need there.

Vanadium, and heat treating are what make screwdrivers resist being damaged from use, and what makes them last over the years.

You could probably home forge vanadium chips into the iron with a bag or so of charcoal and a bellows.

Heat treatment of metals is still more of an art than a science. You can't just read a book and get it right every time. You have to be taught by another heat treater.

In fact, if it isn't radioactive, it is considered to be unfit for human consumption.

You see, the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms tests liquor for radioactivity. Alcohol made from petroleum and not grains, is not radioactive, but your good old "neutral grain spirits" are. It's that carbon 14 again.

If I remember right, it is 400 counts per minute that is the trigger number. Lower and the booze is bad, make you go blind kind of thing.

The World's Columbian Exposition (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Columbian_Exposition) — also known as The Chicago World's Fair — was a World's Fair held in Chicago in 1893 to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Christopher Columbus's arrival in the New World in 1492.

The exposition covered more than 600 acres (2.4 km2), featuring nearly 200 new buildings of classical architecture, canals and lagoons, and people and cultures from around the world. Over 27 million people (equivalent to about half the U.S. population of 60 million) attended the exposition during its six-month run.

Notable firsts at the fair

Sounds like it was a pretty big deal huh?  Wonder why I never heard of it in school. (http://pinkyshow.org/archives/episodes/060330/060330_1893_columbianexpo.html)   :o

Umm...

I am having trouble defining what you mean by "present".  Do you mean that they appear in the movie, or that the movie takes place with the main character spending all their time in the presence of their parents.  If the later than I would argue that they spent almost no time with their parents in Peter Pan, they are all in Neverland, and that the puppies are all stolen from their parents and spend weeks away before Pongo finds and rescues them in 101 Dalmations.

Sleeping Beauty - Aurora's parents are still alive at the end.  She is separated from them to protect her, but they are together in the end. 

Mulan - Mulan's  parents are still alive at the end as well.  She leaves to go to war, but then Wendy, John, and Michael all leave to go to Neverland and you say their parents are present so...

Hercules - Hercules is stolen from his parents, but returns to them at the end, and both of his adoptive parents are still alive at the end as well.

Lady and the Tramp - This would depend on if you consider Jim Dear and Darling as Lady's parents or her owners.  They do have a child and are parents at the end of the movie.   :-\

The verb "cleave" is the only word in the English langauge that means two things of opposite meaning.  It can refer to the act of clinging, adhering, or sticking.  It can also refer to the act of splitting, cutting, or separating.

Did you know that the Siamese cat is actually Asian in origin?

It''s true! Siamese cats originated in the Kingdom of Siam now known as Thailand. Originally they could only be owned by Buddhist Monks and the country's royalty. But in the 1800's the royal family started giving them to European dignitaries. And the world soon fell in love with the magnificent and very vocal felines.

^ Chibachi Nero's icon says it much better than I could.

Na-Geanna, the title of the last Mahoromatic episode, is a dual reference: First, to the "Wild Geese" (Na Geanna) regiments of Irish mercenary soldiers; second, to the single-malt whiskey of that name produced by Richard Hennessy, himself a Wild Goose before he began producing the famous cognac brandy.

From the preview narration:

Quote
"Long ago, a man left his homeland behind. The man drifted to a foreign land and was enamored by the spirits made there. He built his own distillery and lived the rest of his days there. The distillery hailed the man's accomplishments and made a spirit from the man's homeland. But, it was far too gorgeous...and was unlike any of the spirits from the man's homeland. Its flavor was both sweet and awfully melancholic..."

The name Wendy did not exist before Peter Pan. It was made for Peter Pan.

In the case of the character from J. M. Barrie's play 'Peter Pan' (1904), it was created from the nickname fwendy "friend", given to the author by a young friend.

However, the name was used prior to the play (rarely), in which case it could be related to the Welsh name GWENDOLEN and other names beginning with the element gwen meaning "white, fair, blessed".

My sister is named Wendy, but her name was derived from the popular song of the day, by Association (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u2DSeB7qL1A),  that was playing in the hospital at the time of her birth.

In 16th centruy Japan a royal decree freed all cats in order so they could deal with the rodents who threatened the Japaneses' precious silkworms. Once the rodent populace was handled the cat became an integral part of Japanese culture. And it spawned the waving cat which promotes prosperity for Japannese entrepreneurs by inviting people to come into their business.

If, after your claims you wrote for a patent have been rejected twice (same claims)
AND you then decide to appeal within the Patent Office to the PTAB (Patent Trials and Appeals Board)
and you STILL get turned down on appeal, it USED TO BE that your only next step was an appeal
in the CAFC (Court of Appeals of the Federal Circuit) and maybe the Supremes after that.


But that was when the Patent office was located in Washington DC. Now that the US Patent office
has relocated to Alexandria Virginia, (hint: a STATE) you have another avenue before trying to hit up
the CAFC. You get to sue the Patent Office in District Court - the EDVA (Eastern District Court
of Virginia.)


Cool thing about the EDVA is that unlike the CAFC which are a bunch of government gumbies who
tend to side with the Patent Office 9 times out of 10, ("They're Government - we're Government -
they know what they're doing - Back to your hovel, citizen!") in the EDVA you have a *chance* at
getting a jury of regular folks to evaluate the case.


They don't give a terminal orifice of a rodent's alimentary canal about patent law, and they might
give you and your client a fair shake...
