Re: 1145: "Sky Color"

Question, extremely hypothetical:

If our eyes were on a vertical axis rather than a horizontal one, how does everyone think it would change our perception of the mirror problem?

Re: 1101: "Sketchiness"

Ok, pet peeve time: I'm okay with people born in the US being called "americans", since there seems to be no better options. But c'mon guys, America is a frickin' continent , with 40-something countries. And guess what, most of them speak Spanish :wink: And the Spanish speaking population...

Re: What-if 0008: Everybody Jump

Re: What-If 0001: Relativistic Baseball

I think that all current discussions regarding the current application of rule 608(b) are putting the cart before the horse.
