  1. It is a rotation between the time dimension and one spatial dimension (the one corresponding to the direction of travel)

    Today I Learned

    Interesting way of looking at Some are symbiotes of three organisms: Cyanobacteria, fungus and yeast https://science.sciencemag.org/content/353/6298/488 Today I learned that “lichen” is also the name of several (rather unpleasant) skin diseases
  3. Does it. You probably shouldn’t use it then Maybe it is toxic, as well. I think you should take them all to your local police station
  4. You bought it from them so it must have a name, part number or order number
  5. That is why I said "supplier". There is no point asking here. No one can tell you about an unknown adhesive from an unknown supplier made by an unknown manufacturer. At least you could ask the supplier whether the bags and labels are suitable for your purpose. Or ask who the manufacturer is, then ask the manufacturer if they are suitable. The amount of time you have spent on this forum asking people who cannot know, could have got you an answer by now.
  6. ! Moderator Note I would also suggest you make an effort to put your threads in the appropriate place. Moved to Suggestions, Comments and Support. There was no discussion of that. It barely got a mention in your opening post. Feel free to open a serious thread on the topic. But you might want to read up on some of the hundreds of projects doing this already, before posting. Call me old fashioned, but I just think the combination of immature humour and ignorance is not the best possible start to a discussion of the science and technology involved.
  7. Why do you think this is “jumping to a conclusion” rather than, say, examining the evidence?
  8. How do you expect anyone to answer that. Of course you can. Buy some litmus paper. If you are worried about corrosion, you could try putting dessicant (SiO2) in the bag with product. But if you are using these bags and labels, maybe you should ask the supplier. No one here can answer.

  10. Time doesn't have a directional component
  11. How do you expect anyone to know that? There are thousands of adhesives in use. Why do you want to know? I am not surprised. (Certainly more plausible than the adhesive being a problem.)
  12. Why do you think that? It seems very unlikely. Most glues are not corrosive. They may contain water when newly applied, but that would soon dry out.
  13. To give an even simpler answer: they get to the surface and then escape! That may be too simple to be useful. But as you add heat from the bottom, it will cause convection which brings those molecules up to the surface. Also, as the fastest molecules at the surface escape, the average kinetic energy of the top layer decreases; in other words it cools and so will sink lower in the container.
  14. Fair. It should be well known; but it is an extremely surprising result. It would also be interesting to know what the strength of the material would need to be. Presumably, far beyond anything that exists in nature.
  15. That wasn't a fusion reactor, though (which was what was being claimed).
  16. Not forgetting Chargoggagoggmanchauggagoggchaubunagungamaugg in the USA (although I think some extra syllables were added to that one). And, apparently: https://www.worldatlas.com/articles/the-10-longest-place-names-in-the-world.html And the full version of Taumata translates as "the place where Tamatea, the man who had big knees, the climber of mountains, the slider, the land-swallower that traveled about, played the nose flute that he had to the loved ones" (ibid).
  17. If we are getting poetic: "A little learning is a dang'rous thing; Drink deep, or taste not the Pierian spring: There shallow draughts intoxicate the brain, And drinking largely sobers us again.
  18. It is an open-source equivalent to Mathematica (and, presumably, similar to Maple): https://www.gnu.org/software/octave/ (I have only used it for some basic linear algebra when studying ML) There is an online version: https://octave-online.net Otherwise, I would think Wolfram Alpha may be the best bet
  19. Citation needed Citation needed Citation needed
  20. Have you looked to see if anything equivalent is available for Octave? (I am not very familiar with any of these packages, so I have no idea) Also, there is a 15 day trial version of Maple (but maybe you have used that up already 🙂)
  21. ! Moderator Note The rules require you to provide the information here and just post a link. But I would remind you that this is a science forum, so I'm not sure why this thread should remain open. Zero, obviously. Also, your link contains no evidence for the Earth being hollow.
