### Re: 2026: Heat Index

Wait. The Heat Index can be lower than the dry-bulb temperature according to the NOAA.gov website . (The “It’s a dry heat” phenomenon.) I never actually looked up how it's calculated. But I always assumed it was based on (1) the rate of heat flow from your body to the air due to temperature differe...

### Re: 0969: "Delta-P"

Calculating this out, Earth time is about 5.433 X 10^-8 times Narnia time. So factoring this into the equation the actual flow rate is 0.0217 L/sec.

### Re: 0850: "World According To Americans"

If you expect someone from the U.S. to know where, say, Finland is, I think he's pretty justified in expecting you to know where Tennessee is, considering it has a larger population and GDP than Finland. People expect you to know where Finland is because of culture and history, not because of how m...

### Re: 0850: "World According To Americans"

Finally, I turned around and asked her a fateful question: "Name as many states as you can." I missed fewer European nations than she got states. You see, it's kinda ethno-centric to consider being able to name US states as important as being able to name countries. This. I mean, seriousl...
