Re: 1616: "Lunch"

If you break down a car into its raw parts, it seems absurd to drive them to work!

Re: 1350: "Lorenz"

Second, if you choose the political option in frame 1 and continue (currently the only choice) in frame 2, frame 3 has four choices. One of them is "I agree with my opponent ALL ALL issues...". Since this is (one hopes) a typo which will be fixed, this post will become obsolete when it ha...

Re: AP Twitter account hacked - Claims White House was bombe

I'd be interested in finding out whether anyone gets caught or not. This seems like the kind of thing that wouldn't be too hard to track down.

I, too, would like an invite. I will spread my invites to others.

I HEREBY DECLARE...

That XKCD is pronounced the same as Cicada.

Re: 1037(?): Umwelt

Looks like they've got one specifically for Las Vegas. http://img594.imageshack.us/img594/1597/vegaso.png I've also got a variation on the puzzle piece one in Opera that I can sympathize with. (Yes, I downloaded Opera just for this comic). http://img521.imageshack.us/img521/7223/puzz.png

Re: ''Inside Joke'' Discussion (#794)

All right, I love Randall and all, but I'd say that this comic deserves ridicule.

Therefore, I bring you this:

Re: "I Am" Discussion

I just had to drop in and say I couldn't stop cracking up at this one. I'm not entirely sure why, even... but I haven't laughed this heartily for a long time.

Re: Soliloquy

Soliloquy, you haven't answered my question: If the plane starts at rest, and the conveyor belt moves backwards at 1 m/s, does the plane move? If you say yes, can you explain why, if there is no friction between the plane and the wheels? First off, keep in mind that I've only taken entry-level phys...

Part of the initial question is whether or not the plane will be able to move at all, so it's not stipulated whether the plane is moving or standing still. The real question is, then, will a plane with jet engines (or a propeller, for that matter) be able to move forward if the ground it is on is mo...

The ground only stops the plane dropping untill the lift generated by the wings exceeds the downward pull of gravity. The one problem with that statement is that, if the plane is stopped, it cannot generate lift, so if it's completely stopped until it generates lift, it will be completely stopped f...

New to the forums, saw the link to the logic puzzles, and decided to sign up. Here's how I see it, though I may be dead wrong: the thrust is coming from the engine, not the wheels, and the force coming from the conveyor belt is applied to the wheels, which, being wheels, have the capacity to spin. t...
