I'll keep that in mind for when my impromptu fortress is finally overrun.

I've found that being physically attractive tends to trump just about everything else in being popular in high school, but a close second is definitely social skills.

That might work, but I'm a guy, so if I were a main character and weren't the hero, said hero would eventually have to shoot me. You know, for dramatic effect.

I put physics, since I'm an ME, but I doubled in Math. Engineering was an easy choice though. "You mean I can just keep taking more math classes? And my non-math classes will be mostly math? I'll take two!"

to PhD, or not to PhD

Ok, so I'm an ME who just graduated and is about to start work on my master's degree. I'm planning on doing my concentration (and my thesis) in the area of "fluids and thermals" as it's come to be known by the undergrads. However, I've currently got no industry experience (which kind of le...

6. Add a post stating that you've figured it out, etc.? Obviously this wouldn't close the thread, but it would alert those who are trying to be helpful that their services are no longer needed.

the pertinent question: is this faked somehow, or is Randall really obsessed with raptors? Even if it is faked (which I do not personally believe), beekers here is not alone. I am a big zombie movie fan, and pretty much every new building I enter I check out for its value as a stronghold in the eve...

Isn't there something about how the volume of a (convex) shape is proportional to the average of the area of its shadow (given parallel light rays) as it rotates? I think I was told that once, but can't find it on a quick Google search. maybe, but I would think it wouldn't be directly proportional....

I did a little outside-current-hemisphere traveling recently, and I did notice that in SE Asia and Australia, maps are centered on Asia, much the same as they are centered on the states back home. Not too surprising really, considering many maps are used for educational purposes, in schools, etc. I ...

If you're planning on using the first equation (pv=nRt), don't forget that your p value is absolute pressure (p_gage + p_atm).

Actually I'm glad you brought this up, Banksy. I'm an ME and as such tend to believe all things related to EM are magic, but I was told by two separate science teachers (one a 7th year science teacher and one a 12th year physics teacher) that gold (7th year) and copper (12th year) were the "bes...

Ok, first post so be gentle. -Alisto, thank you for being so kind to Lord Kelvin. I'm sure he appreciates it. -Why no love for the Rankine scale? It's not like Kelvin is the only one who ever played with hot things. -As for the previous quote (someone is going to have to explain to me how to cite so...
