  1. I agree. I just felt that if someone wants to rave against authority, leaving religious authority out was a glaring omission.
  2. Oh wow man, just flashed back to my first 8-track (cast recording of hair) A home for fleas, a hive for bees, a nest for birds there aint no words... Now I feel bald.
  3. It's the age of the extravagant conservative, the age of informed ignorance, filled with wasteful exploiters and passive despoilers. An age of boring amazement. Clearly it is the age of the Oxymoron.
  4. due to several months of insomnia, I saw this the other night. Seems to fit right in here. ‘When I use a word,’ Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone, ‘it means just what I choose it to mean—neither more nor less.’ ‘The question is,’ said Alice, ‘whether you can make words mean so many different things.’ ‘The question is,’ said Humpty Dumpty, ‘which is to be master—that’s all.’ source:
  5. The cult of some people who can be fooled all the time.
  6. I guess a million dollar donation doesn't get much attention from a billionaire, why would trump lie? oh, that's right he's trump.
  7. I don't have Wireshark running on this machine, but i don't think it will show the files that are activated , only the service. I think you can get the files from top or ps (ps -au maybe)
  8. Have you looked into Wireshark ? it's a network packet analysis program that lets you see all the bits moving in or out of your computer, or make a log of activity on a specific port.
  9. Is it only the MAGA branded herd who believe that if god's glorious plan doesn't suit you, it's okay to ask him to change it, or is that just a christian thing in general? How can anyone know if big 'g' wanted santa trump (thanks Arete) to be infected?
  10. If life worked like that, we wouldn't need a president.
  11. vectors have two qualities, magnitude and direction. Velocity is a vector and acceleration is a change in velocity. I should have noticed this is the relativity section, not the physics section. Is the moon still considered to be in freefall even though the distance between Earth and moon is increasing due to tidal forces?
  12. I would say it's meaning in science is more precise than in everyday conversation, but you are not wrong. Do you know what a vector is?
  13. I think the tidal lock with earth means the moon is not in freefall I don't think so, but a Physicist might disagree. Circular motion is an acceleration even with no change in speed
  14. You are correct, I should have said: not only an increase in speed. But velocity is a vector quantity, so a change in direction is also an acceleration
  15. Acceleration is not an increase in speed. It's a change in velocity. Our Moon is gaining energy due to the tidal lock with the Earth, and Luna is also changing velocity due to it's orbital motion.
  16. I think you are saying the universe really is the way it appears to your human senses. The "really is" part is philosophy, but since this is Physics section, you need to show some evidence that human senses alone are capable of observing the Universe as it "really is". All the evidence so far says our perception alone is inadequate.
  17. So many tools exist for evaluating an argument, believing in fantastic conspiracy is a choice. I guess if you substitute "jewish bankers" for "lizard alien" Q sounds familiar enough, but what is the real appeal? Does it satisfy the little Conan (the barbarian) in us all who wants to see our enemies driven before us and hear the lamenting of their women? Would teaching Rhetoric in school help cut down on newstainment/newspinion?
  18. What is there to discuss? Somebody has to save the world from the pedophile cannibal adrenochrome addicts and their lizard-alien overlords. Open your eyes man, stop believing the fake news.

    Political Humor

    When I saw that picture, I thought what a great metaphor: curse science - I'll do what I want. Then the campaign released the noble prize thing. What ever happened to egalitarianism?
  20. I think the wiki page about Pareto distribution confirms you. In the exponential distribution section .
  21. I don't want to get too far off topic, but do you mean the count of 1-digit, 2-digit, ... n-digit numbers?
  22. I wouldn't try to speak for Markus, but i assumed he meant random as in not connected to a particular topic. Not random as in their distribution, which would look spikey like noise i think.
