Everything posted by paleolithic

  1. Sorry for posting on such an old thread but.... http://www.magicaltransformations.com/quantumphysics.htm
  2. Hey, I'm writing a story, and I'm wondering what the affects of a very arid climate would be on a humans appearence (oily hair, not oily hair, skin, that sort of thing)
  3. Yes me too, in response to both of you. I beleive it's easily possible for somebody to go in the himalayas with only a robe because it's been known for not only humans but all animals to do amazing things, but hundreds of days without food is something else. The book she told the story from is one you would probably recognize, I think it was called "Living With the Himalayan Masters"
  4. Many of my friends hold interests in various parts of eastern spirituality. The other day one of these friends said something about Yogis or some other sort of spiritual masters being able to go hundreds of days without food or water (she might have said a longer period). I disagreed, but the science of why it couldn't work interested me, so I could give her an exact reason for it being false. I decided to do some research, so first stop here. Does anybody have any explanations proving right or wrong the above statement? Thanks.
  5. Well for one thing, when they had the procedure done, I'm assuming they were infants. I'm sure that if you asked them they wouldn't remember having the procedure done, or having foreskin at all, so you really couldn't ask them which they like better and get an honest answer. Using me for an example, I'm uncircumsized and I'm happy, but I really don't know what the other way around would be like. I've read several reports of young to middle aged getting it done for cosmetic reasons, then regretting it afterwards, because of less feeling in sexual situations, etc.
  6. paleolithic

    Why do we age?

    I'm sorry if I'm taking this off topic but were these studies done with wild meat, or domesticated factory meat?
  7. Accomplishment is a strange emotion. Since humans evolved using tools and accomplishing hard tasks that can take more than a few days, it seems like we would need a feeling to reinforce are justification of spending so much time on one task. Like, a feeling of pride and accomplishment after drying a wooden stave for over a year and finally making it into a worthwhile bow.
  8. The guy who shot John Lennon... Just kidding. Hmm, maybe Tecumseh of the Shawnees, or Geronimo. Yes I know, nothing to do with science.
  9. You may have also switched to fruits and veggies because of dehydration, and their higher water content than meats and grains. Are you sweating a lot? Sweating might also have something to do with your bodies glucose levels, which would explain an appetite for fruits and veggies.
  10. I tried doing several searches involving rain, but the first thing that popped up in my head after reading your post was acid rain, do you think it could be the smell of the acid content? It seems kind of unlikely to me but still worth a shot. Here's a site I came across about acid rain. http://ga.water.usgs.gov/edu/acidrain.html
  11. I found the part of the Christina Aguilara music interesting, I thought it was torture to listen to also but not literally, lol. Do you know why her? Is it something having to do with his view of women in society?
  12. It depends what kind of rock and it's moisture content, Is there a specific one you have in mind? If you want to blow up a rock, heat treat it, then pour ice water on it. Keep in mind you will probably get hurt.
  13. I believe it's building or repairing cells.
  14. That's why I asked for a translated version.
  15. Do you have a database of all the species known to you on your planet and can we look at a translated version? Same question but with a Periodic table of elements.
  16. It all depends on what you are interested in, and good at.
  17. Maybe it's due to the new complexities of what's being studied, and that most "facts" are proven wrong somewhere along the line and replaced with new "facts", that are also proven wrong sometime later, especially when you're talking about astronomy and cosmology and such. It also takes a long time for a theory to become a fact, especially when you have people with questionable sanity saying we shouldn't speak of science because it's blasphemy, but at least they're not burning us alive anymore... poor Bruno.
  18. ****ING SON OF A BITCH! I want to major in paleoanthropology with minors in primate studies, ecology, etc. **** HAVING TO TAKE BASIC MATH!
  19. hence, it being frowned upon
  20. I think the future of human evolution will have something to do with shoes, since we wear them so much. I'm thinking things that are right under are nose but we are just thinking too out of the box for.
  21. Well I think that would explain him burning all his research after so many years, lol.
  22. Ah, sorry for how vague this post is, but I wasn't sure where to place it. A couple years back I was watching a documentary on this location (Somewhere in N. America) that seemed to defy the laws of physics. Like, at a certain point, if you had a slope, and you put a ball at the bottom, it would roll up, that sort of thing. There was a physicist that bought the place in the mid 1900's and did thousands of experiments in it, then one day he burned all his research and died shortly after. I tried searching for a previous thread about this but couldn't find anything, did anybody else see it? A lot of the info in this post was probably altered from memory by the way. Thanks
