### Deciphering a secret message... maybe.

I have reason to believe that the dots and dashes near the bottom of this image contain a coded message. They might not. I couldn't make sense of it with Morse code but maybe I was putting the spaces in the wrong places. Also I'm not sure what to do with the vertical dots. I was hoping that some cry...

### Re: 2 puppies

So, following the logic of conditional probability, which i still can't grasp intuitively, the puppy situation should be similar to this... Let's say I have two pennies. "I have two pennies." Now, I take one of those pennies and place it H eads up on the table behind a large opaque screen ...

### Re: "Skins" Discussion

This one messed with my head enough to comment on. I can understand the concept of furries. (Or at least I have an understanding that I am comfortable with.) The idea of someone pretending to be an animal that's pretending to be a person just messes with my head a bit. It's not enough to just preten...

### Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts (now with 20% more fungus!)

Why are you Mr MessyPetTalk backwards? Well, actually I'm Mr. Mxyzptlk backwards. (It seems that Mzyxptlk and I differ on the spelling of his name but I got it straight from the comic book so I am confident in my spelling.) Mr. Mxyzptlk is a "villain" in the Superman comics and throughout...

### Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts (now with 20% more fungus!)

How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck had a chainsaw? I once asked God this question. God told me that woodchucks are among his favorite creations but there is a good reason that they don't have thumbs. I believe that this question should still be up for debate. Though, something told...

### Re: Southeast Michigan/Detroit Area

I know that area pretty well. My work has me driving around all day every day throughout the eastern part of Oakland county. I'm usually near I-75/M-59 once a week. Though I'm always at work when I'm there so that specific situation is no good for meeting or hijinks.

I live in the Royal Oak area. Near 12 mile and Woodward. Lived in SE Michigan my whole life.
I don't do crazy things nearly often enough. If something comes up I could probably be persuaded to join.
what sort of crazy hijinks do these forums engage in?

I didn't know how to get it out. Now I have to go try that experiment again, and the follow up! I haven't looked through the whole thread, but has anybody posted any crystal growing experiments? Supersaturate water with salt or sugar by boiling water and stirring in either until they stop dissolving...

I call this one, "Egg in a bottle." The materials you'll need are as follows a hard boiled egg a glass bottle (The mouth of the bottle needs to be a smaller diameter than the egg. Most are, so this shouldn't be hard to find.) a source of fire (matches, lighter, stovetop, etc.) a piece of p...

### Re: Corrupt-a-wish

I wish I could manipulate time at will.

Granted: You gain the ability to manipulate time. With this ability, unfortunately, comes a complete understanding of the true nature of time and space which drives you completely insane.

I wish I was an Oscar Meyer wiener.
