Cool Facts

Recommended Posts

Glass is not actually solid but is a Thixotropic Liquid.

 

 

No, I don't think so. We've already had threads on glass being a liquid — it's not.

There is no a.com. However, there is alpha.com. Alpha is "A" in the Greek alphabet. That's kinda wierd.

Glasses are neither liquids nor crystallline solids, but supercooled liquids. They appear to be solids but they do not have a distinct boiling point

I've been told glass is an amorphous solid. I guess it's up for debate.

 

There is no b.com. However, there is beta.com. Beta is "B" in the Greek alphabet. That's kinda wierd. ;)

But that's not the definition of supercooled. It is, however, descriptive of a (wait for it...) "glass transition."

Yes, it is, and no, not really. But there are other threads already devoted to the topic. If people are interested, they should read those threads and post there.

Still need a source; I don't find it reasonable that our excrement is all that different from any other mammal. I think human fecal matter gets broken down, and also can be used (and is/was by some human groups) for combustion and fertilizer.

Not.

 

A billion 100 kg people jumping off of a 1m chair (or equivalent) is ~1012 joules. This converts to 0.24 kilotons, or about 1% of the Hiroshima bomb that did not destroy most of America, though it did flatten Hiroshima.

Excrement can burn if you dry it out enough.also what about the bacteria that live on it. they even produce methane out of it.
