Re: Confessional Shed - I'll keep a look-out

Thank you. It's nice to hear I'm not the crazy one.

Confession: I hate required signatures on packages, and Asurion phone insurance.

Re: Confessional Shed - I'll keep a look-out

This January I had the first close death and up until that point I had never had anything of that nature really affect me. When he passed it really hit home though and I still can't wrap my head around it, not that it's tearing me up or anything, just that I still can't believe it happened. Everyone...

Re: 0883: "Pain Rating"

I would definitely put a 10 at the point of unconsciousness. Over the summer I broke my arm in four places, although I didn't know it at the time. But after standing up and regaining consciousness from the fall, I attempted to straighten my arm out and woke up laying in the yard again. Also, a week ...

Re: "Conditional Risk" Discussion (#795)

I race sailboats and the weather doesn't always cooperate and we tend to forge on anyways, so naturally this subject comes up a bit, the chances of getting struck by lightning are about 1:280,000. Not to mention being on a boat that has gotten struck doesn't normally do anything to the passengers(pe...

Re: "28-Hour Day" Discussion

My personal record for staying awake was brought on by a very busy weekend I had during my junior year of high school. Before that point I basically lived off of energy drinks, I would drink, at a minimum, 2 a day. Thursday night I decided my budget and my health couldn't take it anymore, so I got u...

Re: RELATIVITY QUESTIONS! (and other common queries)

Sir,

Thanks for your reply, and most of that post was assuming that the reader already has most of the basics down and is looking for further understanding. I know I should have not assumed anything but that was my own thought process with it

Re: Why is there no "center" of the universe?

Exarctly. The essence of relativity is that there are 4 dimensions an object moves through (three spatial and one temporal), and it moves through them with a total velocity of c. So if it's stationary in the three spatial dimensions, then it's moving at maximum speed through time. If it's going at ...
