Re: 1538: "Lyrics"

Oh, dear. Researching about the lyrics and meanings of individual songs has deepened my appreciation for many of my favorite bands, and also made me a fan of bands I once didn't want to give a chance. On the flip side, it also made me cringe many times, as I wouldn't have listened to certain bands ...

Re: 1538: "Lyrics"

It is quite comforting to learn that someone whose native language is English is also struggling with this problem. For me, to understand the lyrics in most English songs that I hear I must really, really concentrate hard to listen, and I usually can't be bothered. I think it's a problem for everyo...

Re: 1407: "Worst Hurricane"

... To ask a question that seems a little under-asked here, what hurricanes correspond to Texas, 1916 and 1941; Louisiana, 1915 and 1918; Florida, 1921, 1928, both 1935s, 1944, and 1946; South Carolina, 1940; and all the other dates-without-names I'm going to be too lazy to write down?

Re: 1338: "Land Mammals"

... Is anyone else a little disappointed that the boxes aren't arranged as an abstract of the continents?

Of course, that could be bad, if all the cows are set up on North America... quite the statement about the people there...

I was also curious about this board position, and how it got that way It's a Sicilian Defense variant known as "The Dragon", where the far three king-side pawns form the "head", and the far two queen-side pawns would advance three (for the farthest pawn) and two (for the second ...

Re: What-if 0067: "Expanding Earth"

Also missing: If you increase the mass of the Earth, you increase the gravitational pull between the Earth and Sun. We're not adding to the velocity of the Earth in this scenario, so our planet would not have enough velocity to maintain orbit around the Sun, resulting in it gradually spiraling towar...

Re: What-If 0002: SAT Guessing

As for those questioning the scoring of the SAT, those who've been saying it's a normal distribution are correct. Mean = 500, SD = 100, anything below 3 SDs becomes a 200 automatically (lowest possible score), and anything above 3 SDs is automatically an 800. Sure, but do they check the distributio...

Re: What-If 0002: SAT Guessing

My only problem with "SAT Guessing" is that the probability mathematics used to answer the question doesn't really fall into the "physics" subject. It's just math. Isn't Physics just applied math? http://xkcd.com/435/ As for those questioning the scoring of the SAT, those who've...
