    I read an article once that said you would need to consume the blood of six average humans each day to survive on that alone. Then you would have problems from lack of nutrients and vitamins, poisoning and infections etc, etc.
  2. You may have problems with trying to arrest him... ...considering he is a fictional character
  3. Maybe it would be more appropriate to have: "In money we trust". It would be less offensive and make a lot more sense. On my country's currency we have our monarch, promising 'to pay the bearer on demmand the sum of' whats on the note. Although I believe in democracy I don't make a big deal out of it because in the end it's just money. However if you seriously want your country to change what's written on its bills, why don't you lobby for useful information such as maps or periodic tables to be printed on one side of each note. It would improve the learning, and general intelligence of the population.
  4. Nice film. Quite an eye-opener and also funny at parts as well, especially the 'war on anxiety'. I think the point was that America's relationship with China has been very good for China at America's expense.
  5. That's no moon... And a full military but they do have head mounted lasers
  6. To the OP: England and Sebia, as those are my parents nationalities. I think England have got a chance, as always, but I'd be very surprised if they don't go out before the semis (as always). As for Serbia: Group C Argentina Netherlands Ivory Coast Serbia
  7. I'd assume they meant 3.2 billion. That sounds about to right to me - roughly half the world watching at least one game.
  8. Hmm let me think... The geek in repose VS The Dark Knight Yeah, that's a tough one
  9. 1) Fight Club - This movie sums up my philosophy perfectly. Given the chance I wouldn't change a thing about it. 2) Memento - One of the most original films I have seen. Very insightful into the workings of the mind, plus the best twist in any movie I have seen. 3) Pulp fiction - Classic Tarantino action. 4) The Big Lebowski - Hilarious film. I can watch it again and again and I know it will be good. 5) Apocalypse Now - Epic film. Realy showed the madness of the whole war. 6) Sin City - Great storylines + the most stylish movie ever. 7) Gladiator - Brilliant fight scenes, great storyline, and an accurate portrayal of ancient Rome. 8) Blade Runner - One of the best sci-fi movies ever. 9) The Matrix - Although it 'borrowed' a whole lot of ideas, I've must have watched it more times than any other film. 10) Rat race - Nothing has ever made me laugh as hard as the sequence with the Jewish family in Hitler's car.
  10. Somehow I managed to stumble across the website of one 'MC Hawking' - a rapper who likes to rap about science. If you think I'm making this up then just read the (somewhat hilarious) lyrics to his song about entropy: So far I have been unable to find an audio file, but if you want to read more lyrics from such classics as 'E=mc Hawking', 'F*ck the creationists' and the somewhat less science related 'All my shootin's be drive-bys', then go to http://mchawking.com Seriously I can't make this stuff up
  11. The first link that came up was for a webpage with my name on (I mean me personally) The next link was for my cousin. All the rest were mis-spellings
  12. That's realy horrible. The poor kid looks like he's only 6 year old.
  13. You may want to try here: http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Main_Page
  14. ...thrill of the fight Rising up to the challenge of our rivals But to the OP: I voted 'crap' because I assumed the question was 'do you think rap is crap?', rather than a rap lover asking people if they listened to rap or other genres, which he would dub 'crap'.
  15. Because they had realy tiny hands. Organisms that require more complicated movements from their appendages will have to develop larger brains to increase co-ordination. Big dinosaurs only realy had to worry about eating things. Little dinosaurs didn't have large enough brains. That's my take on the matter anyway
  16. Marry the nerd. But don't get married til later life, when everyones' looks have gone.
  17. In the labs at my school there are 'hazcards' which give details of all the safety hazards of the chemicals we use, along with what dangerous reactions they take part in. Are there any websites which have this kind of information? Any help much appreciated
  18. (m17) I'm fairly happy with the way the law is in my country at the moment. (Abortions allowed up until 6 months in pregnancy unless mothers life is endangered.) I do not define "human" as having a certain set of chromosomes that are capable of reproducing with another certain set of chromosomes. If this were the definition of human and your argument is that a human life or something which had the potential to become a human life received lawful rights, then surely if I plucked out a hair from my head that would be allowed human rights. After all it contains human genetic information, from which it would be possible to sequence the order of bases, reproduce them and insert them into an empty nucleus, from which you could grow a human. Of course you would need a lot of equipment, and the hair would not turn into a human on its own. However an embryo quite similarly will not grow on its own. It requires a womb with a blood supply to receive oxygen and nutrients. The hair and the embryo both have the potential to become human, but that should not grant them any special priveleges.
  19. My answers, in no particular order: 1) Use a see-saw. Stand on one end and fill the other end with small objects that weigh less than 5kg. When the see-saw balances, take the weights off and weigh them invidually on the scale then add them up to get your mass. 2) Hang yourself from a device that measures force. Read off the force and divide it by gravity to get your mass. 3) Take your kitchen scale on a space ship and land on a low gravity planet. Weigh yourself then divide by the planets gravitational field and multiply by Earth's. 4) Find a group of weight lifters and ask them to bench press you. If one of them only just manages to do it ask him what his max lift is = your mass. You could also use fluid displacement as others have said.
  20. I saw: GOD I SNOW HERE Heh, must be cos I'm agnostic
