5. ### Today I learned

TIL how big grains of sand are: "If the Sun were the size of a grain of sand, the distance to Proxima Centauri would be about 200,000 miles. This is because the width of a grain of sand is about 2,000 miles." This was the 'AI' response to me googling; "if the sun was the size of a grain of...

13. ### B Is it possible to boil water by stirring it?

Weird. I connected my Kill-a-Watt meter to my blender and microwave and found their efficiencies in heating water: Microwave oven: 29% Blender: 25% Unfortunately for my blender, it draws a mere 330 watts whilst my microwave draws 1300 watts.
14. ### B Is it possible to boil water by stirring it?

I did the experiment on my microwave yesterday and found that it's output is about 400 watts. It's nameplate output is 650 watts. So I googled and found that several sources said that microwave ovens should be replaced every 7 to 10 years due to degradation of the magnetron. I had never heard...

16. ### B Is it possible to boil water by stirring it?

Guessing you'd lose more blood than water when your spouse learns how much you paid for a pedal powered blender to do a science experiment: \$2955.00 ref: https://rockthebike.com/shop/bike-blenders/electric-fender-blender-pro/
17. ### B Is it possible to boil water by stirring it?

I analyzed the video from PeroK's post #9 and determined that the effective power input to the water from the blender was about 530 watts. I then googled and discovered that top athletes arms have a maximum continuous output of 30 watts. I decided that Drakkith was correct stating that it was...

25. ### Internal combustion engines founded in GBR and car industry collapse

One man's 'significant fall' is another man's 'correction from a bubble'. It doesn't look bad to me at all. Just normal fluctuations, IMHO. Not sure about the UK, but I've noticed a huge rise in the number of electric scooters here in the colonies. I've actually been researching buying one as...

27. ### Internal combustion engines founded in GBR and car industry collapse

I'm a bit confused. Compared to the rest of the world, UK vehicle production seems to have been quite stable over the last 73 years. ref: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_motor_vehicle_production

Now that would take some 12th level Ninja algorithm solving skills to figure out what words that pattern eliminates.
34. ### I Impossibility of constructing a particle consisting of only neutrons and proton-neutron interaction

I liked your question and upon googling I found a brief synopsis: Four neutrons together momentarily Momentarily in their case being β10 -22 seconds. As best I can tell, the following is the answer to your question:

Mostly luck, and bit of technology. Today's word was the 17th most popular seed word and 0.7% of the global players got it on the first try. I had it ranked #12 on my list of best potential seed words, though due to a technicality, it was not on my active list. Now my seed word, although I rank...

Does the 'T' in your name stand for 'Time Traveler'? On October 24th you claimed that 'yesterday was August 23rd'. The Wordle solution for August 23rd was 'VERVE' and the solution on October 23rd was 'TEMPO'. So the only thing amiss, as far as I can tell, is when you think you are. ps...
