  1. France to win. Zidane to completely dominate the midfield, and Grosso of Italy to suffer a fate far worse than death...or at least be sent off for diving.
  2. Technically, I don't think there's such thing as various races of humans. It's one race. The idea of races of human was an invention to justify treatment and mis-treatment of certain peoples by other groups, based upon certain characteristics, the most obvious of which is skin colour. That might just be an idealistic viewpoint though. Behaviour has nothing to do with being of a certain 'race'. Take a japanese person and raise them in a culture where different qualities are encouraged or prevalent, and they will most likely develop with those qualities. So I guess, in a way, culture is the answer to the question.

    World Cup!!!

    What are you on about? I presume you're talking about Australia and Japan, and that match couldn't have been more exciting towards the end...3 goals in 8 minutes...sensational. btw, a few posts too late, but a comparison. http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-4804555374987665855&q=NFL http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-2038858658548114385&q=rugby+league http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=8670961340288273492&q=nrl I don't see much difference...except for a mountain of padding
  4. http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-6283096511750618839&pl=true Try five. This one gets really good towards the end as well.
  5. The following link answers some of your questions: http://www.aerospaceweb.org/question/careers/q0147.shtml
  6. At first I thought the message was that we've come all this way, evolving into the most intelligent species on earth, to drink intoxicating liquid that damages the intelligence we've evolved...but i guess 'good things come to those who wait' works as well... Cool ad.
  7. To add to that, no one in the entire world uses the same date format as the U.S, except Canada. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calendar_date You're living in a bubble people!
  8. Everyone missed that little gem. I do believe the following link should satisfy all your naming needs: http://www.prisonbitchname.com/ Or if you wish to broaden your options even further: http://dir.yahoo.com/Entertainment/Humor/Names/Name_Generators/

    Longest word

  10. I think there is supposed to be two past pluto, but that depends on your definition of a planet. They're icey 'mini-planets'...in other words, huge arse (ass) ice-balls. I'm not sure if that's the technical defintion they've adopted though. Are they supposed to intersect with plutos orbit at any time?
  11. aahh, I see...I've always found it particularly difficult to understand electricity, or rather, electronics. I don't know why. Very cool info.
  12. It's not hard to have at least 8 glasses per day. Just make a habit of it - everytime you walk past a sink (hygenic one is helpful), have some water...It's good stuff! I have to admit, when I was younger, all I drank was cordial, and never drank water on its own. Then, about 5 years ago I was without access to my precious cordial for a week or two, and resorted to water...Since then, I don't think I've drunk cordial, and out of habit, drink a lot of water. So for a while, I was patting myself on the back for being so healthy, then I hear that too much water puts too much pressure on your bladder, and you can end up with a weak bladder. So I ease up a bit on the water...now I just drink as much as I want. What is up with this crazy world?
  13. Wow, thanks. Phenomenal pics. Strangely enough, that guy doesn't live far from where I live.
  14. Thanks. I knew I was missing out on some critical points. Do you have any idea of the vicinity within which a human could be of a strike, and still have a chance of survival?
  15. From what I've read, neutron stars in the long run slow down more and more until they can no longer accelerate enough charged particles (electrons I think?) to radiate a detectable amount of energy, then ultimately, keep slowing until they are just a ball of neutrons floating through space, with, I presume, little to no angular momentum. http://spiff.rit.edu/classes/phys230/lectures/ns/ns.html As for the photon/proton question, personally, I don't see how a photon (no charge) absorbed by a neutron (neutral charge), could result in a positively charged particle. But then again, my understanding of particle physics isn't great at the moment.
  16. I think I read somewhere that lightning heats the air in close proximity to around 6 times the heat of the suns surface...what's that, about 20 000 degress C! Which begs the question: how do people survive lightning strikes with only burns and missing eyebrows, considering that immense heat?
  17. That time with the mace was pretty bad j/k A splinter (from a wooden fence) can be savage. The more you try to get it out, the more it cuts and scratches.

    Silly Question ?

    Whatever the answer, please just don't even entertain the thought that any such conspiracies are in any way valid. Just to add, mrhelichoppe, if you haven't already, you should check out: http://www.badastronomy.com/bad/tv/foxapollo.html Great site, and should answer any uncertainties.
  19. I don't know if this'll prompt any discussion, but it's gonna be quite a sight to behold, both during construction and after completion obviously, plus it serves such a worthwhile purpose. Go Australia! http://bulletin.ninemsn.com.au/bulletin/eddesk.nsf/0/A7BD712D34AE25B3CA256B12001BA833?open ...admittedly it's fairly old news, so hopefully a thread hasn't been and gone already...
  20. I'm only new to the forum, so there hasn't been much chance for my views on specific subjects to evolve in particular. However, I can say that already, from reading through backlogs of posts and threads, I've spied the tip of the iceberg, in the distance, through super-zoom binoculars, attached to a telescope, how very little I know on certain topics...I mean, I knew I had a lot to learn, but this forum's really rubbing it in!

    Saudireports, you are either a troll, or guided by seriously flawed logic... Should you also blame those individuals through history who have contributed to the formulation of the laws of motion, for deaths caused by projectiles, such as bombs, hitting their calculated targets during ww2?
  22. I think 'NavajoEverclear's posts have been the most appropriate for the thread so far... Trying to argue who is 'most genius' out of these people is a bit childish. Genius reveals itself in so many forms - think outside the square...

    "The notation e made its first appearance in a letter Euler wrote to Goldbach in 1731. He made various discoveries regarding e in the following years, but it was not until 1748 when Euler published Introductio in Analysin infinitorum that he gave a full treatment of the ideas surrounding e." My maths lecturer showed the class a book the other day that had, among other things, Eulers letter to Goldbach, where he defines and uses the term e, officially for the first time. From memory, he related it to a flying spherical object, which was because he was doing military research at the time, i.e, a canonball? That could be wrong. The following link has a bit more about the letter, halfway down the page: http://www.gadsdenst.cc.al.us/math/Jesse's%20Papers/michael_shifflet.htm
