  1. Could a phobia be considered as something akin to a mental illness?
  2. I thought time moved slower the closer you got to a source of gravity...
  3. I was wondering what the temperature beyond the event horizon of a black hole might be, would the compression of matter towards the singularity heat material up to a level comparable to the Planck temperature, or would the gravitational forces restrict all vibration, even down to the quantum level? Which lead me to thinking, if that was the case, would a singularity have any zero-point energy, or would the singulariy violate Heisenberg's uncertainty principle?
  4. I'm so glad I decided to move to New Zealand instead of Australia...
  5. I'm skeptical of the claim that you're a "degreed biologist", as your ideas about the origin of mankind don't seem to be very scientifically minded.
  6. Aquatic Ape Theory? You are not joking, are you? Serious as a "heart attack", aren't you? Well sorry about that, cause if so, ...... me definitely sure that you have been sorely miseducated and brainwashed into believing a whole parcel of "junk science" claims that have no basis in reality or the functioning of the natural world.
  7. Quick question: How could you tell if your idea was wrong?
  8. Dark matter and dark energy are completely different phenomena, the only reason they're both referred to as "dark" is because they're not yet fully understood.

    Your local library may have Chemistry for Dummies, I generally find the "for Dummies" series to be quite good whatever the subject material.
  10. Do you have a favourite type of animal you'd like to learn more about? For example, I find the reproductive strategy of the female octopus intriguing, so then I might do a project on the reproductive and parenting strategies of cephalopods, comparing and contrasting how the different cephalopod species approach procreation. Or, if you like cats then you could study the social structure of various big cat families, and so on. Does that help in any way?
  11. I don't see why not. At some point between 3 and 4 you'll find Pi.
  12. Everybody is a mammal. We share common ancestry with other creatures, depending on how far back you go, but we didn't evolve from any modern animals.
  13. Is it something to do with working out the mole units?
  14. Think about these four questions: What does MAP mean? What does "mm Hg" refer to? What's syncope? What's a cerebral edema? If you can answer those, you're well on your way to completing your task.
  15. Is it possible for frost on a metal fence to sublimate directly to water vapor from the sunlight heating the metal up?
  16. Would that not imply that the laws of mathematics have changed over millions of years? I suspect some lifeforms approximate the golden ratio/Fibonacci sequence closer than others, but I don't believe the underlying mathematical sequence would change - in fact if we were to ever discover alien life, I believe that it too would show the same shapes and patterns.
  17. If you do design a more phallo-conscious lavatory bowl, will you change your name to DrPee?
  18. To paraphrase Steven Weinberg, "Good people do good things and evil people do evil things, but for good people to do evil things it takes religion."
  19. So... what, exactly? Religion is real and we should all convert to Hinduism? Is that what you're saying?
  20. I just sit a little further back, but then I am very slender.
  21. Mithras. Mithril is a magical metal usually made into chain shirts by Elves, and given to Hobbits.
  22. I would suggest it's an artefact (I think that's the right word) of the mathematical laws of reality.
