Two particales in the Vast arena of Space and Time bump into one another.

One says, "Sorry.''
The other says, "Pardon."
They may look at one another; Or; Not.

They each bounce of takeing some energy leaving some energy.
Evauating that dynamic would take more energy than both extended.

In the Vast arena of Space and Time two particles bounce into each other.
One says, "Hey! Asshole! What are you Doing In My World!"
The other says, "I Own You! Don't mess with me."
Those guys put a lot into their Relationships.

Fifty times a day would be exhausting.
Sorry. Sorry I bothered you.
Sorry. Sorry It was not smooth.

Sorry. I have to think about you, I was thinking about something, else.
Sorry. That was not planed. Are you alright?

I know you are big.
I was moving fast.
umm. do you want me to help you up?

When you you say Sorry? (better too soon than too late)

The word Sorry when meant and used often is very funny.
Imagine a person on Skys a Newbie.

I would ski yelling Sorry.
Skys are like many forms of transportation.

We go where we look.
If I looked at people I skied into them.

I don't like to sky. I got my Badge.
I see the Charm.
I had to get good enough to sky, alone over fairly long and easy distances.

Down hill most of the way.
Then it is possible to get a Ride back up, some places.

Other places; A person has to crawl back up over the hill.
Cross Country skiing can be dangerous, too.

Not nearly as glamorous.
When I crashed and burned at Cross Country it was Sooooo boring.

I had such problems with the craters around Trees.
I slid into them.

Don't look at them. That does not help if the Leadership is an Asshole.
The Jack Ass that was leading liked to watch me crawl out of those Craters.

I did not Ever want to take That Trail, again.
He was an Expert.
I was a Novice.

Saying sorry when someone else is in your way is definitely part of the culture here. I'm baffled that you've not noticed it until now to be honest.

What biggles said. I remember reading somewhere (I think probably in Watching the English by Kate Fox) about someone testing the reflex of saying sorry for things that clearly aren't your fault by accidentally-on-purpose bumping into people at stations, and I seem to recall something like 80-odd percent of people saying sorry even when they were clearly the one who had been bumped into, rather than at fault.

They're making you move so that they can get where they need to, therefore sorry. Seconding it not having anything to do with intimidation. It happens to me (and everyone else) constantly, and I'm a 5'2" 115 lb blonde female. Not exactly threatening.

See? We are Natural Scientists.

We know with very little instruction, an exchange of energy has taken place.
It is Laziness to not Stop and Do the Math?

To do the Math every time would slow the busy modern world down.
Fist fights would break out over Who had Harmed Who.

It is better to carry the responsibility to take care in Crowded cities.
It is also possible to Walk with One hand out in Front.

An arm extended. I did that in a city one time.
If people came within an arms length of me; They were Too Close.

So, funny. I was told to stand in line to buy Cheese.
I was still in the back of the line a long time, later.
Because there was room for a Human to fit between me and the other people, they did not think I was in line.

I thought it was funny.
I don't care about Cheese, anyway.
Do i?

I do not care about cheese enough to push other people out of the way to get a look at it.
If it had been an Octopus, it would have been a different story.

How awful to be put in line for Octopus; Push ones way to the front and find them Dead.
It could happen. Some people eat Octopus. I have done it. ("When in Rome. Do as the Romans Do.")

ok. Octopus are so much like Cats.

Conformation Bias? Yes. Maybe.
What do you think?

I watched two Octopods. So, funny.
Young ones. Like Kittens.

One came over and 'Jumped' the Other One.
So, funny. That is a lot of legs.

The jumpie was Ready. The way a Kitten will be.
They wrasseled around for a while, then one flew off to look in a Crack.

The other one Likes people. So, cute. Wet Kittens.
They will become settled old Cats. Set in their ways.

One may become a Clown.
The other hardly ever seen.

I like Octopus. I can 't have one.
That is a high mantaince pet.

When we work together, The State can have one.
We can go look at it and be ever so Proud.

That is what we have, now. shhh.
Don't tell. The Tea Bags would put a Stop to it.

Waste of fucking Tax money.
Stupid Government waste of Numbers and Numbers of dollars and dollars and What?

Is there a Strategic Advantage we need Octopus for?
It is a War! We need all Money in Every Form to Fight the Scary Terrorists.

How can Octopod fight the Scary Terrorists?
How can a House Cat?

That does not work.
House cats are much more dangerous than Octopus.

Cats are not any more smart than Octopus.
Cats can move over open ground.

A Cat can seem to have eight legs and each tipped with razor sharp Talons.
No Octopus is that scary.

I had a Big One wrap its leg around my arm.
It took some courage, at the time.

Big Ones are delicate.
I had to promise:
"I will not jump. I will not hurt this animal. Yes. I understand I am more dangerous to the animal than it is to me."

I jumped.
I did not swing my arm up in the Air Octopus and all.
I jumped; Little jump. Then giggled.

It does take courage to let The Cracken grab an arm with its arm.
Laughter is a stress release. And; It was funny.

That thing Had me. It was trained.
Have you ever done it?

It does not Hurt. Not at all.
But; Octopus are not warm and cuddly like Cats are.

Octopus is Cold.
It is not possible to have a Tank with an Octopus for general Population in the US, anymore.
People will on purpose, out of cowardice, or out of stupidity hurt the animal.

Kittens and Octopus need to be behind Glass.
That is so sad.

People are missing out on a weird kind of fun.

In my case, they often accompany it with pushing me aside before I can even react, but then again, I'm not physically intimidating, so.

My washing machine does 1000 revolutions per minute during the spin cycle (when set to do so, there are slower options too). That's 16 full rotations per second and then some on top of that. The rotating part is a steel cylinder almost half a meter across. It has wet clothes in, which means it's probably not very well balanced and not too light either. I don't think they are manufactured with the highest precision processes either. Thousand revolutions in a minute just boggles my mind when thinking of it.

No way I'm getting close to the damn thing when it's running unless I have to.

The safety testing is probably fairly stringent, at least for known brands of washing machines. And at least it doesn't have blades, like a turbine would. In the world of scary rotating things, turbines are very, very scary. If a turbine throws a blade, it'll go straight through a fairly significant thickness of anything that happens to be in the way at very high velocity. Certainly an aircraft turbine will go clean through the entire body of the plane if it flies off in the wrong direction. Failed turbine blades from power stations have been found embedded in things miles from the station they came from.

The blade on a gas push mower spins between 28 and 35 hundred rotations per minute, between 46 and 58 rotations per second. A blade that averages 22 inches give or take, spinning 50 times a second. Probably less then two feet from your legs. The things we use every day are terrifying if we think too hard about them.

More information, please.
Or; Is the correct term:" Citation needed"?

Where? Where were Blades found miles from the station?
I do not doubt it. Not one bit. A rife bullet goes five miles.
The force to fire a Bullet is small. The force to launch a Blade is large.

http://www.barrett.net/ammunition/50bmg
Even the .50 bmg, which many think of as the longest of the long range cartridges (though I'm not positive that it is), seems to only go about 600 yards if fired from a standing position straight out. Fired from about 80 feet in the air it would still only go 1500 yards.

Also, the force to fire a bullet isn't terribly great, it's just it's confined to a tiny area, creating immense pressure. A 12 gauge shotgun shell won't even impart enough force to drive the pellets through cardboard without the barrel to create high enough pressure.

Yes. The shooter was up in the air.

The shooter was up in the foot hills.

That bullet may have been an overachiever.
It did not kill her. It did not go all the way through her.

It took out a kidney. The surgeon, poor baby, left a scar.

For the first time a girl i had randomly met on a neighborhood party, asked me to add her on facebook. Hasn't happened before i think, that the girl took this initiative. Yay for more confidence :)

I thought vegemite was a common mineral found in Australia that helped ward off drop bears?

"Buying bread from a man in Brussels

He just smiled and gave me a vegemite sandwich"

What is the American equivalent of Vegemite or marmite? Nutella? Or is that Italian? Disclaimer: I have no idea what vegemite or marmite tastes like. This may have been an insult to Nutella.

Quite the insult. Vegemite and Marmite are yeast products - by-products of beermaking, IIRC - and Nutella is a hazelnut/chocolate spread. I'm pretty sure the US has no equivalent.

Strangely enough, I've also had Men At Work stuck in my head today, but for me, it's "It's A Mistake".

Huh. Yeah, that's weird. I just associate it with spreading and thought of something not common over here, but still really popular.

It might be closer to ketchup, culturally speaking. Used by locals and despised by those not raised on it. :wink:

There... are people that despise ketchup?

But what do they use on their fries?
