Re: Fluorescent food?

This person did not, and "my" dog died before I turned 5 :( But I would be surprised if everyone actually knew that. I've been asking around among my friends for other things that would fit the bill, and not a single one suggested GT. It might also be a regional thing, almost everyone in a...

Re: Fluorescent food?

That would mean that a (correctly done) Gin & Tonic would be flourescent? That is nice to know. I'll bring my blacklight to the store and see which drinks might contain quinine.

Fluorescent food?

I've been wondering for a while now if there is anything you can mix in food or (preferably) drinks in order to make it flourescent (when exposed to visible or UV light), without it also becoming toxic at the same time. I'm looking for generic things, so no specific brands (as it is quite likely tha...

Re: The Black Death != Bubonic Plague?

It's the history of history that makes people refuse to see the other side of the argument. As it stands, we can not be sure of which side is right, and which is wrong, but as most of us got told in school that "this was how it was", and our parents got told the same thing... and our teach...

Re: Childhood (not so) crackpot theories

I had several, when i was younger. I concluded that everything was pre-determined. Not trough a divine force, but because things were not random, not happening by chance. If an object hits another object, it bounces off (or crushes that object), and the same had to be true on a molecular level. Chem...

Re: Pseudo science

Fnord, I think you're missing LoopQuantumGravity's point. He's calling these people morons not simply for failing to know about science despite the availability of information on the subject, but for then publishing work claiming great "scientific" discoveries or similar which imply a tru...

Re: Pseudo science

I still don’t understand how you can refer to a person who knows no physics as a moron. Not knowing (or having no interest in knowing) something does not mean that you are a moron. A lot of scientists or people studying science have no idea of the history behind it. And what little people "know...

Re: Mind's Separation from The Brain- Existence?

Science has its roots in philosphy(,and is in fact moving towards it agin in many fields (think quantum physics, M theory and so on)). The science of the ancient/middle ages was known as "natural philosophy". There is no "line" between the two, althought a lot of people want to b...
