Car chase sex.

I wouldn't mix sex with a car chase... Well, I wasn't really thinking of combining the two. I had in mind some poor sod who, unwilling or unable to get their rocks off, either with the aid of another human being or, as the title parenthesises, single-handedly, instead feels compelled to jump in a c...

Re: What is a good substitute for sex (including masturbation)?

Well yeah, there's lots more to life than sex. For those who like it, the tragedy is that it's ever an 'either/or.

Re: What is gravity?

It needs to be remembered that the Universe is not required to conform to human expectations of what it should be. Absolutely. The history of science is a wasteland of false theories. As Serendipper put it, knowledge proceeds one funeral at a time (or something like that). The Universe is, and huma...

Re: A strange spiritual consequence of the multiverse theory

When the speaker cycles outward of the box and the air in the port also cycles outward, the sound pressure level rises sharply. That happens at resonance. Below resonance, they work against each other since the speaker travels outward, but the air in the port travels inward. Above resonance, the ai...

Re: What is gravity?

To be totally honest, and to introduce another metaphor into the mix, I personally believe that the phenomenon of gravity, along with every other phenomenon encountered up at the “local” level of reality, is a “software” issue. You could be right, seeds. For me it comes down to the philosophical qu...

Re: A strange spiritual consequence of the multiverse theory

Don't worry, in the other universes, the conversation is on topic :D Hope I'm still nerdy, though. Dunno much about speakers; is a 'port' the diaphragm or just the hole? Are the speakers in series or er? Oh bollocks; I have no idea what I'm talking about. What's the basic set up? Is it enclosed? Do...

Re: Born Again?

Max Planck explains:
"A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it."

I have a theory that gravity derives from neutrons.
Does it account for the fact that stars like our Sun are mostly hydrogen, which doesn't contain neutrons?

Re: A strange spiritual consequence of the multiverse theory

Well a trampoline can only resonate. I was thinking of someone trying to jump too fast on the trampoline. I could be missing something. Slightly off topic (which frankly hasn't been anything to do with a strange spiritual consequence of the multiverse theory for some time) but the two padlock exper...

Re: What is gravity?

Dunno seeds. The defining feature of entanglement is that it's 'superlumimal' ie faster than light. By my reckoning, that would imply that gravity shouldn't disminish with distance; which it demonstrably does.

Glad to help because now you can produce more infographics :)
It's all good, thought provoking stuff. I like the padlock and rubber band analogy and might well use it, but I will probably change it to a trampoline. Dunno how many of my target audience will have ever bounced a padlock up and down.

Re: Andy White Comedian

Hello Andy. Yours is a noble quest and a thankless task. Henri Bergson, for instance, wrote a book on laughter the main shortcoming of which is that it isn't very funny. Hume had a sense of humour, my favourite joke of his being that religion is proof of at least one miracle-that anyone would believ...

Re: A strange spiritual consequence of the multiverse theory

https://willijbouwman.blogspot.co.uk That's a great link! Especially the part about the atom. Is that your work? Yes. Very impressive! Thanks again. Yes the EM wave can cause things to happen, but the important takeaway is realizing that nothing affects the original wave (nothing that I know of any...
