  1. After a long time away, I have re-imerged, employed, learning to be more of a reader, more fond of simple math, and dragging a friend here with me.
  2. Can we have an atmospheric science forum please? Or even an environmental science forum?
  3. I'm taking microeconomics. If anyone knows enough to help, then it is a brilliant idea. If not, eh.
  4. Oh wow. What kind of resources do you need?
  5. What do you mean free-for-all? I don't know what that means. Oh, and congrats on being a columnist.
  6. Hi, I wasn't sure where this goes. Someone sneezes around christmas trees. It's is worse as the tree gets older. (I am assuming that this is a tree that is cut and set up at home.) Is there something about the tree that changes as time passes that woud cause the sneezing to be worse? Mold? Dost? Fragrance put out? I really don't know. Please help me. Thank you.
  7. I'm not sure that you can find a physical thing that is the life force. I believe that a life force exists. I've heard of cases where a married person will be so heart broken by the death of his or her spouse that they loose the will to live. There are also cases where a man who has no hobby doesn't really have much to live for retires and he dies a few years later. Maybe its something else that made them die, but even if it did, there might be something else that chose to accept that fate. (I don't mean to disregard the state of the body. A beheaded medivial criminal might have desparately wanted to live, but it just doesn't work that way.) Sometimes a person wants to live so much even with so many things and somehow they don't die. I think that it is the result of some kind of life force in each of us. That is something that is so closely tied to the physical realm, at the same time exists outside of it, like the mind-body connection. In a way, all creatures probably have some kind of life force like that. If you try to smash two bacteria together, (I am assuming that they are alive) you are trying to smash to life forces then together. They cannot become on. At least one entity will die in the process. (I hope I don't sound totally wacked.)
  8. I don't know why this would be and I'm not going to look it up, but the Jewish law was given long before refridgerators to people who lived out in the hot Middle Eastern desert. Could something like bacteria developing in milk and meat be a reason for the original Jewish law? Like if a certain amount of bacteria or something built up in the meat and a certain amount in the milk and alone the amount that would be consumed would be fine but together it was enough to cause at least some kind of health problem?
  9. If you are really interested in autoimmune diseases, you might also take a look at ones caused by viruses. Fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrom believed to be caused be epstien bar virues, the same group that includes the disease mono.
  10. I don't know if this helps but sometimes I am in a bad mood and I don't cheer up easily except when I am around other people and interact with them, but I don't want to yet at the same time I want to be around people. Then if I do what I want and stay by myself, it is kind of like a cycle of some kind of somewhat depressed mood feeding itself on my isolation. When for some reason I break it and go interact with people, I feel much more cheerful and social. I don't know if that helps at all though.
  11. If I said pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis, would you believe me? Very cool.
  12. A hypotenuse is the long side of a right triangle.
