Re: Advantages of Cooked Food?

I grew up in Harlingen but I live in DC now... I can't get a tamale or fajita to save my life. Nice to see another Valley person here. I grew up in Mission, I live in San Antonio now. I learned that most other states suck when it comes to meat-like food. Oh, and don't order rare in eastern block co...

Re: The Data So Far Discussion

Last I heard in my World Civilizations to the 1500s class was that there are currently 2 types of Buddhism right now. On deifies 'The Buddha' and his primary followers and anyone that did a particular amount of good in the local society at the time, and the other is just a structure on how to view t...

Yes, yes we do.

We got the Pope to allow us the ability to make a choice about whether to believe in evolution or not :) Yay for Catholicism. -snicker-

Re: Nuclear Power, what's your issue with it?

And, if you're really good this year, Santa will make the steam make the area warmer, for the win. :) That, or you'll have some wicked snow going on, but I'm sure you're already used to that. Russia needs to get on building nuke plants too, because they have, oh, I don't know... Siberia? A tad bit l...

Re: Advantages of Cooked Food?

Sometimes cooking the meat imparts flavors into said product, such as with the smoke of mesquite or pecan or oak. Mesquite is win. God I want some fajitas right now :(

Re: Science if we never touched Space

There would be no flight. Sure, humans have looked at birds and been curious, but without the whole what lies in the sky question, we would have never even attempted to leave the ground, and just left it to the curious animals that are capable of defying gravity. [EDIT: Correction, there would be no...

Re: Physic's Obsession With The Prefix "Super"

My fav is superego, as to the freudian views. Super in that case doesnt mean uberimportant, it's more reffering to the collective ego of the group. It occurs to me that not many people actually know how many cases the word super can be used, and most think it means bigger but still singular. -shrug-...

Re: Nuclear Power, what's your issue with it?

I'm all for nuclear power, and I believe that there are vast tracts of cattle land that could do with a nice hefty reactor stuck on them. You're going to lose a lot of energy to I 2 R losses getting that power where its needed... Maybe in other states, but I'm in Texas. We have cattle land next to ...

Re: Favorite home experiments

My current ongoing household experiment is my design for my fluidized bed filter for my fishtank. The ideal goal is to end up with an overstock tank with no nitrites, no nitrates, and no need to change the water every month. Current design is a 4in PVC pipe, 5ft tall, with various bits on it to make...

Re: Some kind of Sociology?

You sir. Have no idea what you are talking about. I think people should stop trying to make assumptions about anonymous, and just let the wheels turn. There's nothing you can do to stop them, they can and will succeed no matter what. The only thing you need to ask yourself is... "Is posting th...

I'm all for nuclear power, and I believe that there are vast tracts of cattle land that could do with a nice hefty reactor stuck on them. As for the waste, the sublimation zones are a great thing for it. I also do come to understand that there is a 6 mile deep crack in the ground somewhere under a p...

Re: Parallel Universes

I can imagine the set of all possible me's, every possible action or non-action I might have made. Or every possible even that might have happened to me. That set can be thought of as a number representing me I suppose. It would be kind of big but it would be finite. It wouldn't be a number then? I...

Magnetic Law question

I know the general guidelines of how magnetics works, I was wondering if anyone could tell me, or better yet, show a diagram as to what happens when you take a positive wire, a ground, and a negative wire, and braid them? How does the magnetic field propagate itself then? Likewise, what happens if s...
