Re: Sci-Fi Weapons and Technology

then when it comes to Star Wars, they seem to be shooting plasma. How could the plasma stay together after it leaves the gun? Do they fire an electromagnetic field along with it?

Re: Best method of teaching/learning?

Why do I remember almost everything from scuba class and not other classes? You remember what you learned in scuba diving class for mulitple reasons.

Re: Parallel Universes

Re: Some mechanism to locally reverse time

At first I was disappointed with this answer, but I think I like it... a lot. I don't see how it can be accidentally induced, but the person doesn't have to know that they aren't actually time travelling. Yes. I think this can work. Thank you. Indeed - you can even play with the fact that to the re...

Re: Science needs a symbol

Here's an image of the candle in the dark suggestion made by idobox, which was my initial thought as well. candle.jpg Of course, a more stylized version might be preferable.
