Re: Bad science jokes!

Not exactly a science joke per se , and it's also one of those particularly tedious jokes, where you laugh out of relief ("it's finally over"): Why do trains clatter? To answer this question, let's consider what a train consists of: a locomotive and a number of cars. Now the locomotive and...

Re: Hitchhiker's Guide XKCD style narrative plot

Neat. Marvin's timeline got me thinking, since he might not have experienced certain events in the same order as other characters did. Or at least he says he is 37 times older than the universe shortly before seeing God's Final Message to His Creation. Apparently your drawing follows the timeline of...

Re: How'd you come up with your username(s)?

Strange to read the origins of nicknames, but I like the idea. Anyways, my nick is quite boringly a high school nickname, but at least I got a nickname I actually liked in high school. Luckily it doesn't make any sort of sense, so it's usually not taken, I have managed to use it everywhere I wanted ...

Re: What's a motto with you?

Perhaps I'd say Don't panic is sort of a motto, it really seems like the most solid advice for life (and also because I like Douglas Adams' writing). Although I'm usually not as optimistic, as this "motto" would imply, I often use "as good as it gets" when things take a turn for ...

Re: Loud Jet Engine Speaker

This sounds like something Disaster Area* would use on one of their concerts. I think the throttle-response of jet engines is too slow for that though, the fast spinning compressor and turbine blades have a large angular momentum. *Disaster Area: a rock band appearing in The Restaurant at the End of...

Re: 1600: "MarketWatch"

Someone actually did something vaguely similar in Hungary with the IPv6 traffic graph. Apparently it was possible to draw the main building ("K building") of BME on top of the graph using two gigabit internet connections. Just to think, someone has the technology to send and receive a vast...
