Re: 1268: "Alternate Universe"

I'm with you guys on bell peppers, provided they are green. Red bell peppers are pretty good raw and magnificent when cooked, but I cannot understand why a person would remove one from the vine while it is still waxy, green, and mostly flavorless. As a bit more of a dimensional stretch: I come from ...

Re: 0928: Mimic Octopus

Oooh, hexadecipus ! And since it's been brought up: A hexadecipus would imply something like 10 arms and 6 tentacles (Contrary to widespread belief, octopodes have no tentacles). Hexadecimal is an artificial mishmash of latin and greek that's actually appropriate for a change (since we use 6 of one...

Re: The Ungoogleable

I've had trouble researching some environmental social science topics that use common words with a jargonny meaning. Searching terms like "nature" and "environment" in any academic database gets you a lot of " nature vs nurture" and "X happened in Y environment &qu...

Re: Portal Paradox

Probably a useful thread necro here, what with portal 2 out recently. I think the only way to avoid breaking physics is to stop treating the portal like a wormhole and guess at the properties of the technology as created within a coherent realm of physics. I think the in-game portals are not so much...

... yeah I just edited Reason to loop into Rationality>Reason. We'll see how long this lasts (probably seconds).

Edit: the point being that Philosophy now no longer loops into itself.

Re: The effectiveness of evangelism

It is hard to dispute the effectiveness of evangelism on certain subsets of the population, particularly people who are semi-religious and feeling a need for religious community. Having read a number of the religion threads on this forum, I'd be pretty comfortable generalizing both this community's ...

Re: Desalination and the Global Water crisis

Hmmm, while we're in a thread that began with an out-of-the-box idea, how local is rain? I'm thinking this because presumably it'd be possible to pump seawater inland, create a salty lake, then let it evaporate in the sun. The water would fall as rain, but locally enough to be worthwhile? I doubt i...
