  1. whoa! That sounds weird

     

    check this out even though you're not a kid http://www.kidshealth.org/parent/emo...vior/pica.html

     

    The easiest way to solve this problem is to call the doctor like it says on the site. Unfortunately if you have a mental problem you should call a phyciartrist. (sorry cant spell). If you have a friend that could possibly lock away the chemicals and do the dishes for you, that would help a lot!

     

    Anyway, it's perfectly normal (to a point). I mean sometimes you get an urge to sniff petrol or glue but all you have to do is to pinch yourself and you'll snap out of it.

  3. I was thinking the other day when I was reading another thread about macs. So I decided to start this thread.

     

    I felt I needed to get a new music/audio player because I have one of those bulky handheld radios from the 90's. So I wanted to know which is better out of these:

     

    MP3 player (i'll be getting the 2 or 3 gb ones if I'm goona get a MP3 player)

    MP4 player (they're so cool, it's got a tv screen like-thing.

     

    an Ipod which type would be the best. like a ipod nano or a shuffle or one of those 80gb video ones. they cost a fortune though!

     

    or just a new plain old radio player that can't fit in your pocket!:D

     

    Or should I not even get one at all and listen on the internet

  4. Well, physics talk about forces and stuff like that right?

     

    Think about the distance, time graph.

     

    To find the distance of something you multiply the speed and time.

    To find the speed you divide the distance by the time

    To find the time you divide the distance by the speed.

     

    :cool:

  5. Hey, remeber I was bit by a golden retriever, and not the pittbulls. There is a little to do with their breed, but very little.

     

    Com'on , are you saying it's got nothing ot do with the breed? I own a German Shepherd, around 4 years old and he never bites anyone. Anyway just take a look at the major news incidents about the fatal mauling's of little kids, most of them are either pure bred pitbulls or pitbull crosses.

     

    SkepticLance should know about the Virginia Ohlson incident involving two Pit Bull and Staffordshire cross dogs (in New Zealand). Now these were in a private property, fenced off. And when a old lady came by they just jumped on her and tore her to bits. She was not on their property, nor making loud noises - but they just fatally bit her. And also the incident involving Aotea Coxon (NZ) she required 290 stitches in her face because she was attacked by a American staffordshire terrier-cross, by the way she was only 2 yro

     

    There is a hell of a lot of wishful thinking in this thread, by dog lovers who do not like to believe that any breed can be inherently nasty.

     

    Hey I'm a dog lover and I don't think the breed should be banned. All I'm saying is that restrictions should be put on the breed.

  6. Thanks iNow

     

    This is a good idea, but I'm not sure how an adequate test would be devised. Perhaps that is a good new thread to be started. ;)

     

     

    I take it in all of your experiences with pit bulls (is it safe to say "more than 10?") that you've never been bitten?

     

    Sorry, if you meant how many times I’ve been bitten by a pit-bull, I’ve been bitten around 4 or 5 times but none of the bites have been serious, and yes I have interacted with over 10 pit-bulls (none of them are not pedigree), because pedigree dogs (including pit-bulls) are expensive and their ‘owners’ will not just let them run free to be picked up by the SPCA

     

    This is a good idea, but I'm not sure how an adequate test would be devised. Perhaps that is a good new thread to be started.

     

    I’ll think about it.

     

    Well maybe the person could apply to Animal Control for an application sheet. A dog Ranger could possibly come round and check out the environment. For a more extreme ban, maybe someone should check up on the person’s police records and see if the guys got any past criminal offences or animal offences. Just like how Guide Dogs trainers (Dogs who work for the Foundation for the blind. These puppies need to go for runs and they often need to learn and familiarize themselves to the environment. These dogs are really incredible, then can open cans of baked beans and they are taught to phone 111 (911 in the US) and that is how they are selected (in New Zealand)

     

    Are you only talking about pitbulls? Or all the different breeds of dangerous dogs, because I have interacted with around more than 100 different dogs, most of them crosses but yes, pitbulls are normally the most aggressive out of all the other breeds of dogs.

     

    Just a quick story, the other day I was feeding the animals. We use steel little pots to put the dog food in and there was an angry looking dog that looked very similar to a pitbull cross, I opened the cage door and gently placed the food on the ground. Now that dog was isolated because there have been reports that it’ll just randomly jump on his ‘roommates’ and bite them. Well he was the last dog to be fed and I left for the office. And ten minutes later when I returned to check on the dogs and to take the pots in – guess what happened to the poor metal pot – it had been reduced to a lump of ripped metal, while all the other pots belonging to the ‘nicer’ dogs were carefully licked clean!

     

    My experience with dogs and owners are that any trouble is caused by the owner. Further I am inclined to say that owners with "small" dogs are generally more irresponsible. The problem is that "big" dogs causes more harm and are more attractive for "bad" guys.

     

    Exactly, you don’t have a big burly-gangster looking guy walking a Chihuahua or neither do you have an old lady in her 90’ies walking a big pitbull terrier which is half her size and that her head could probably fit in the dog’s mouth.

  7. that sounds like fun but, is this an expirement???

     

    By the way pitbulls and those man-eating dogs should not be banned, but the best way to stop them from chewing on people is to restrict the access to own the dogs. I work at the NZ SPCA as a volunteer and every now and then we would get a stray pitbull sent to our doorstep, the problem is that their owners – if they have any is that they are let free to roam around the streets, hence causing trouble. Another good way is to make sure their owners are capable of owning a dog like the sort. Have any of you heard about Michael Vick and his gang of fighting dogs? Well most of them are pitbulls and rottweilers and, honestly that guy is not a capable owner.

  8. Well if you like science fiction, theres the book and film Timeline http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timeline_(film) that you can take a look at. Quite good (even though it is fiction) it is by Michael Crichton (maker of Jurassic Park) and it talks about Quantum mechanics and about the theory of physicist Max Planck and also the theory of Hugh Everett (many worlds interpretation.) (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Many-worlds_interpretation) This guy proposed that our current universe was sitting beside millions and billions of other universes, each of these universes were identical. The only different thing was that they were at different times. Eg. there may be a universe in which Hitler won WWII and then that goes on, hence taking different paths. He said that since there were millions of different universes there had to be a way to access it. This was where the movie and book carried on the story, saying that it may be possible to travel to other universes (Hence traveling through time since the other universes run at a different time) Their idea was to send a person (or lots of people) by traveling through quantum foam (what the universe is at the sub-atomic level) using something like a fax machine.

     

    Then the book carries on in the 13th and 14th centuries during the 100 years war.

     

    This book would be a great read and if you like non-fiction books there are many out there, especially if you search them on google and wikipedia, since you have a passion for computers I included this site for you http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Computer_books

     

    I would really recommend this site for lots of tech-related books http://www.computerbooksonline.com/

     

    and also if you enjoy maths theres http://www.math.gatech.edu/~cain/textbooks/onlinebooks.html

     

    have fun reading

  9. yea it's possible although that during the time when the earth was created everything and everything was balanced. A little bit too much of something and there would be no life. Say do much heat, or too little heat or too much methane or too much carbon.

     

    so yes, its possible but the odds are stacked against it. Cause if there are any intelligent life around they surley would have replyed to our radio signals (SETI.)
