    I'm a bored teen. I want to be a pyrotechnician when i grow up. I frequent http://www.totse.com (period) I'm an aspiring contact juggler. I like to throw cards. What I like most, though, is explosives.

    You gonna employ me?
  1. Wouldn't the weight of yellow equal the weight of a single photon of light at the frequency that we perceive as said color? If so, it would be zero, as a photon is light, and light is the only form of matter we are aware of that has no mass, and therefore no weight. So am I right in saying that yellow weighs nothing?
  2. Black holes suck in enormous amounts of energy; not even light can escape the pull. What happens to the energy once the black hole collapses? Due to the Law of Conservation of Energy, it can't simply disappear, so where does it go?
  3. you and i, heck, MANKIND might not be able to measure that. but just because we can't doesn't void the possibility. we'd only be breaking the laws of physics if we were able to measure it; we aren't able to measure it, which means we can't tell the future. it doesn't mean that the future isn't preordained. also, how would we break the laws of physics if we could measure that? do you mean because of Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle? EDIT: if a mod sees this, would they please change the thread title to "Quantum Preordainment"? please and thank you.
  4. well, let's assume that we fully understand the location of each particle in the universe, and each particle's relationship to other particles. knowing all this would allow us to predict the future. if we can predict the future, it must already be set, correct? also, i meant preordainment, not preordination. i'm pretty sure preordination isn't a word.
  5. Has anybody heard of a theory about quantum preordination? I have some ideas, but I'm not entirely sure that they're new. I remember thinking about String Theory before I ever knew it was an established idea, and I want to make sure this isn't the case this time around. Actually, come to think of it, is preordination even a word? The spell check says it's not, but I never liked spell check. If it's not a word, substitute predestination.
  6. would negative distance occur in a theoretical situation where the length of a straight line between two points is greater than that of a non-straight line?
  7. but they're different galaxies, right? what it seems everyone keeps telling me (even after i asked this same question) is that i'd see the same thing.
  8. i'm just not getting this. what i see in front of me is more or less the same thing as behind me? how can that be?
  9. they aren't? huh. i'll check out the difference on Wikipedia. so, does our universe contain antimatter?
  10. i don't necessarily agree with the idea of ID giving way to evolution. i'm Christian, so i'm going to use the Bible for my reasoning. basically, the Bible says God created everything over a period of six days, with man being the last creation. God created Man from the dirt. although, in the Bible, it gives us examples of time dilation between Heaven and Earth, so it might have been six days in Heaven, not on Earth. if that's the case, then the order of Creation suggests that God could have used evolution as the process for creating everything.
  11. do you think da Vinci's experiments on corpses during the Renaissance was considered grim?
  12. maybe have a powerful electromagnet remove the oxidized particles during baking?
  13. but they will be different galaxies, right? i understand the idea that you're going to see a smattering of galaxies no matter how you turn, because there are just so many. but i would still be seeing different galaxies than are "behind" me.
  14. so what would be the overall effect as viewed by both parties? in this case, let's assume i'm observing you, and you're going faster than lightspeed. what would i see? what would you experience?
