  1. Correct (with some caveats). Something can be stationary with respect to you, but everything is moving with respect to something else somewhere.
  2. They change, though very slowly over the course of a human lifespan. A good example of this is the pole star changing over time. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pole_star
  3. Could be useful as a means to conserve resources when such trips beome routine. Other options are likely to be more acceptable/possible by that point too though. Main concern would be impact of being comatose on coordination and more general functioning.
  4. Probably will happen eventually but has officially ended at the moment. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Kingdom–United_States_free_trade_agreement President's Trade Promotion Authority expiring is the main issue. Falls back to the House. There is movement to try and restart everything though, with an emphasis on negotiations with the UK. https://www.wispolitics.com/2022/u-s-rep-kind-releases-bipartisan-bicameral-trade-policy-recommendations-for-the-118th-congress
  5. UK is a strong military ally, on broad trade policy our countries are somewhat at odds though. US tends to lean towards protectionism, while UK leans laissez-faire. US is a union too behind the scenes, so feel like could also be an unhealthy relationship for the UK to jump into.
  6. Saying some mass went from 0mph to 60mph is just simpler than saying it went from 30mph to 90mph. Velocity value is basically arbitrary, as long as you are consistent about things. If I'm measuring my velocity as zero relative to myself, I can't tell the cop that pulled me over for speeding that I'm also going zero relative to the road. That doesn't work.
  7. I don't think so, but IE 11 supports it if you can download that.
  8. In theory, there's expansion, if one somehow knew exact distances.
  9. Yeah, Constitution wasn't written with any Parties existing in mind. They're not in there anywhere lol.
  10. That's for sure lol. Likely to repeat too within the next few years.
  11. That might be tried by a single person. Not sure. This a list of all occasions requiring multiple ballots. https://history.house.gov/People/Office/Speakers-Multiple-Ballots/
  12. 121 more tries and we can beat the 34th Congress!
  13. Eh, been awhile. I feel like sometimes we need to embrace our more chaotic roots. Maybe they'll end up reaching across the aisle for votes or just for some to dip out, who knows? Is kind of weird it's like various aspects are shifting back. TPA expiring is another one. Going to be interesting.
  14. I'm actually happy to see more classic US politics again. Lot more engaging.
  15. Yeah, Entanglement is great for security and gives an extra state to work with but provides nothing additional for transmission speed.
  16. What math? What are you talking about? Russia, Putin really, just needs to end this madness. He's helping to create what he claimed to fear.
  17. Do you mean the Patriot Missile Systems they're getting/have in case the war spills over into Poland?
  18. If they use the same symbols (0-8) could still end up using 1,000,000 though it would represent a different value(8^6).
  19. Liquids normally become less viscous as their temperature increases.
  20. Normally when this happens it is due to the mouse misbehaving. Can unplug the mouse and restart to test. Easy solution is to try cleaning the underside of the mouse and table surface.
  21. That's virtual. c is the speed of light in a vacuum specifically. In the simulation they have it passing through milk.
  22. Be along the same lines as a space fountain or more broadly an active structure. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Space_fountain Main issue are the power requirements and any energy losses in the system. Nothing physically impossible about the concept though. I think it probable honestly. Not dealing with the same risk and tensile strength requirements of a traditional space elevator.
  23. Need to simply disallow foreigners. Be more reasonable if it were restricted to citizens only. Someone having a bit of fun registering a tortoise along with fictitious individuals: https://fortune.com/2022/10/21/uk-prime-minister-liz-truss-conservatives-tories-leadership-contest-cybersecurity/
  24. Not sure how accurate this method really is, but dividing party membership by eligible voters in the last referendum, I get roughly 0.5%. Main issue that masses are not directly deciding the top leader. Technically true here too though... I think we can all agree some random foreigners probably shouldn't have a say, especially with potential for fraud these days.
