Why all this talk of changing the second law of thermo dynamics? Why not the first law? Can you imagine all the things you could do if energy wasn't conserved? Well... anything!
The zeroth law is kind of annoying too sometimes. Like when your coffee is cold or your ice cream melts.

This reminds me of a relationship I was in several years ago. She such a sweet girl, and it seemed we could talk about anything. We even liked to read the same books. This was the point in my life where I'd just gotten into Orson Scott Card. I'd read the first two of the Ender's series when I entere...

Lately, I've been doing most of my coding in BACARDI, but I've been having some trouble with the triple carboxylation step prior to program output. I've already tried using Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation to excise the lower mandible portion of the script, by I think I'm goin...

I'm a summer camp counselor. We get 30 new kids every single week. And all the names I learn by the end of the first day are forgotten when they come in the next day wearing different clothes and sit in different places!

The solution? "Hey... buddy.... how's it going?"

Re: Why Nerds are Unpopular

I graduated at the top of my high school class. Everyone knew who I was, and pretty much everyone who knew me personally liked me. I wasn't especially physically attractive, and didn't have any girls (that I know of) with crushes on me the way some of the athletes had. But I had a lot of friends, a...

I find that if I extend the tape measure completely vertically I get the best results. Actually, I'd think the best would be "just-a-bit-less-than completely vertical". Whenever I try to do it completely vertically it bends over backward. Wow. My roommate and I had almost exactly this con...

Well, this arguement certainly seems kind of one sided.
I think it depends on the situation. Since duct tape can solve any problem, it would only stop the magnetic field if you needed it to.

A Short Riddle

Sorry if this has been done before, but I haven't seen it, so maybe you haven't either? :-) Either way, I think it's cute:

I am at the beginning of eternity,
the end of time and space.
The beginning of every end,
and the end of every place.
What am I :?:

Hey everybody, I'm Dan! I'm a 20 year old chemistry major at UC Berkeley. I have a 5 page paper on Annie John due tomorrow, so why i've spent the past two hours on the forums is something of a mystery to me. Actually, it's not. But it should be. And suprisingly enough, that pretty much sums up my li...
