My memory isnt perfect, but pretty good. I can remember large amounts of text fairly easily, word for word, and Im really good at remembering numbers. I memorized pi to 90 some digits in less than a week and that was pretty easy. I cant remember what I had for dinner a week ago, though.

i know about hawking radiation; I'm pretty sure it's do to the fact that antiparticles are regular particles going back in time, and vice versa, not entanglement. Antiparticles are basically normal particles but with their electric charges reversed (a positron is the antiparticle of an electron, wi...

Id keep windows and dual boot if I were you. Its not particularly difficult to set up, you should be able to do the setup easily from the ubuntu installer (Might want to have a second computer available so you can look up stuff though) Even if something gets screwed up, which I dont think happens al...

Not particularly, they are too slow to do anything on, and I think the old user interface design looks rather crappy. I used to have one with 95 that I got on occasionally just to play with, but one day when I had the case open for cleaning a cat decided to use it as a litterbox... I do enjoy using ...

A half naked drunk guy walking past my house at 2 in the morning, while playing an accordian. Also while visiting New Mexico with my dad (it was either Santa Fe or Albacurque) there was this guy with a rat, a cat, and a dog. The cat sat on the dog, and the rat on the cat, and they all got along perf...

I can lie. Smoothly. Better than most in face-to-face interaction. I need to have put together the lie beforehand though but this doesn't take me all too long. I can't lie spontaneously. If asked a specific question that I have not stored away an answer for in my memory, I'll spontaneously respond ...

No. They are not.

Flames are heated gas... Plasma is a separate phase of matter. Plasma can cause flames, but it is not, in itself a flame.

Yes, but sometimes that gas gets hot enough that it is ionized, making it a plasma.

i wonder exactly how much it would cost to do stuff like that? I would guess it at several hundred million dollars per rover/other object. This is based off of the cost of several sample return missions to the moon, mars, and asteroids, which all cost 100-200 million dollars, and I figure because o...

A trillion years seems rather long. I dont really want to be around for the end of the universe. A thousand years is good enough for me. In that time, I should be able to make a time machine, and then life wont be very boring. As long as I dont age past around 20 or so.

The air does have a very slight color to it, the problem is that its not dense and not reflective enough to see it, unless you look up and see it multiplied by several miles of air. If you could somehow increase your eyes sensitivity by about 10000x you could see air easily, as well as everything el...

Yep. I sit like this: (link) sometimes, but more often with the lower parts of my legs bent sideways, so the upperlegs remain parallel, but Im sitting on my butt instead of my legs (if that makes sense). I also tend to sit sideways in chairs.

Amusingly, a recent study showed that autism-like behavior in mice sometimes resulted from viral infections early in the mother's pregnancy. Admittedly, the animal model may not translate directly to humans, but if there is a similar mechanism, that would mean that not only do vaccines NOT cause au...

Yes. I'm better at figuring out problems, finding patterns, etc. Also more logical and I have a far better memory than most people. And (though I dont think IQ tests are an accurate test of intelligence) I consistantly score much higher than average. I hate being referred to as smart or intelligent,...

I ten to procrastinate a lot. If I have homework (or even a big project) I wont do it until the night before its due, or sometimes the class before. Its a good system though, I get time to do interestin stuff, and the resulting panic causes me to finish it in a small fraction of the time (such as la...
