I think of Reinhard Heydrich's hormonal level. He was feminised and I'm interested how much.

I was wondering earlier if AS affects the way a person fights. I remember that as a kid I would get picked on a lot, but would sometimes win and surprise everyone by pulling some unexpected, weird combat move out of the bag. What does you guys think?

You'd need a material of infinite refractive index to stop light completely. I don't think that can exist outside of a singularity, in which case you know as well as anyone what happens. :?: :wink:


No, in fact that would not even slow down the light at all.


How would that work? With increasing refractive index the light would go slower and slower... and then jump instantaneously back to its ordinary speed in vacuo? :?: Doesn't sound right to me.

Quote:
What I mean is that light's speed has been higher, years ago, and the speed of light is dropping gradually.


Do you mean this? It is by no means so widely accepted as to justify "we know the speed of light is dropping", but it is interesting and testable (and a lot neater than suddenly zooming inflation, so it'd be nice if it's true.)

Light traveling a longer distance always takes longer than taking a shorter distance.

Ehm...I can't recall reading any research works for that matter, and I think I should take my statement back, untill I really get to read that "wall of text". I think I should belive you (because I've never had any evidence or anything from the start).

When people say to me "Have a good one" I say "Have a good one what?"

When were the week days (mon, tue etc) utilized first? Is there a possibility that people lost track of it in the past?

I always wondered why we say Monday night instead of Monnight (and so on with every other day and night of the week). It's not day night, it's night isn't it?

A day is 24 hours which also includes the night time.

This may or may not count, but I was wondering earlier what the time duration of the longest ever scientific experiment was/is.


it might depend on how you define an experiment.

the people filmed in the Up series (link) were first filmed in 1964 and many of them will likely continue to be in a documentary every 7 years until the filmmaker dies or they do.

that doesn't beat the pitch drop experiment but it's interesting.

Its doable. They made some people camp in a cave with no time and no daylight, and found they naturally gravitate to a 25 hour clock. that is, they sleep an hour later each day, and go to bed an hour later.


if left to my own devices (i.e. unemployed) i do something very similar to this, and i don't even need a cave.

Why don't they say "day" in that line? :wink:

But it's just up to you to fill it in, people can also mean "journey", "week", or whatever fits. It's just some NT easiness you can use to your advantage, I think. "one" Mostly refers to something that the person talked to has mentioned sometime, as in: "I'm going on a holiday tomorrow!" "O, blablabla" "blablabla bye" "Have a nice one <holiday in this case>". I don't know if it's limited to one conversation, though; I live in the Netherlands, so there's nearly no chance for me to check things.

when i was cornered [like an animal] a primitive part of my brain would take over without me thinking about it, and i would get medieval. otherwise, i would just slink away.

The first time I heard "have a nice one" it annoyed me. Reminds me of newspeak from 1984. Why can't people finish sentences?

if someone tells me to have a "nice one", then i am affronted.
how dare anyone tell me to do anything without proper authority?
i do not unthinkingly obey anyone who issues an order for me to have a nice day, because it is up to me whether i have a nice day or not.
