Speaking of things that are seaish (C-ish?), I wasn't able to open the seaish version of your eclipse, Sustainabilizer, but the version is the thread is wowterful.

But what does the Earth stand on?!

Reminds me of that line from the old Superman movie, where he tells Lois Lane, "Don't worry, miss, I've got you." And she says, "You've got me? Who's got you?" :)

ETA (actually, first I replied instead of editing. :roll: ) I never put in a decree, so here's one: Talk about things that are seaish, or C-ish.

Here are some redundant Image seaish versions:
MPEG1/AVIMPEG1/MKVMPEG1/MP4
MPEG2/AVIMPEG2/MKVMPEG2/MP4
MPEG4/AVIMPEG4/MKVMPEG4/MP4
Does any of them work for you? If so, which one(s)?

Hi, thunk! Nice to see you. I'm surprised it's snowing in the basement. Seems like that shouldn't be possible. Should probably have someone look into that. :)

We're having winter storms here, which means lots of rain and wind, possibly with landslides, flash floods, trees down, etc. Good times.

lmjb1964 wrote:Did Aristotle think there was one point that was the center of the universe?

Yes. That was his conclusion from the combination of “Eearth and water want to fall down.” and “The Earth is a sphere.”

lmjb1964 wrote:I'm afraid I haven't really read much Aristotle.

I got most of my knowledge about him from Wikipedia. ;)

lmjb1964 wrote:I definitely know of people who think they're the center of the universe. :roll:

Same here.

However, according to Einstein's General Relativity, that's a valid point of view. It's just that most calculations get easier when we put something else in the center.
Spoiler:
If I consider my head the center of the universe, and I turn it by 180°, the Andromeda Galaxy travels a seaish half-circle around my head. That's a distance of π · 2.5 millions of light years within a second – much faster than light. Also, it takes extreme forces to accelerate and decelerate a whole galaxy within that Time.

However if I carefully write down all equations, everything turns out correctly: Faster-than-light travel is okay, since no information is transferred, and the extreme forces are precisely provided by the inertial forces in the rotating frame, in particular the Coriolis force and the centrifugal force.

It's just easier to calculate when I assume that I am not the center of the universe. But the result is the same.


Also: ENHANCE!

Image Image
(For seaish versions, click on the images.)

Same tools involved.
Version 1: ISO 200, f10, 1/100s.
Version 2: ISO 800, f10, 1/4s.
(To be continued. Wait for it.)

Although it's a little surprising, since it suggests the newest frame was written in the last four-five dips. I would have thought the frames would have been done further in advance than that. But maybe it's just a Coincidence that you both used the exact same words. :)

And thanks for relinking to the blitzposting video. That is a lot of work to create a blitzpost!

Yes, Time ended, but we are keeping up its spirit. For instance, there are two stories made by forum members and RELATED to Time running right nowsee above. We also have movies, literature, songs, and more RELATED stories, including my sequel to Time.

Ok, so I had a whole page of text ready to go, and lost it all due to a rogue keypress1. Recreated some of it, the rest can live on in the random thoughts that keep me awake when I'm trying to sleep at 2pm.

GET ON WITH IT

[Future footnotes will be kept to a minimum, since I've already been sitting here long enough for most of my limbs to fall asleepz]

Anyway, a few months ago, 4np4 ago (26642664), the decree was to be creative. I already had a project planned but wasn't ready to begin, and so promised an IOU. Well, I finally got around to it, so here you go209

New BSTA:
Use your phone
Image

The phone could be useful, it has a clock in it.
But it does not show the correct time.

Your phone sometimes doesn't want to turn on and the only way to make it work again is to pull the battery out and put it back, but this resets the clock.
And you don't feel like setting up the clock every time this happens.
So the phone is useless as a time source.

But you noticed something else. Something interesting.

That the phone has managed to find a mobile network to log into?

Sorry, got no present present...

Well, it looks like kxa and b have not only traveled to the moon, they've traveled to the past. 2007, to be exact (and heretical).

What was the year again in the story up to then? But I'd assume that the date including the year displayed by the phone is just as useless as the time, for the same reasons.

OK, I blitzed the story up until I found a date. The 23rd of June 2011. (Also, every time I re-blitz I'm reminded how awesomefully funny bsta is.) But thats a very good point, that if the time isn't right on the watch, the date might not be either. What else would be the interesting thing that they found? It does look like they have signal there on the moon, so that is interesting.
