1. Is there a connection between spin and KE/mass-energy equivalence?

Bosoms (energy'ish) are 1 spin integers, Fermions (mass'ish) are 1/2 spin integers. KE=1/2MV^2 E=1MV^2 I've only been trying to wrap my puny mind around spin for longer than 10 years, these spins creates magnetic poles right? In all 3 dimensions?
2. Favorite Sci-Fi television or movie?

My vote: Farscape! I haven't bought a movie in 6 years, but I just bought all 4 seasons of Farscape a couple months ago. It's the best.
3. Dimensional reduction

Like entropy tends towards chaos, why do star systems or galaxies tend to reduce their movement through the 3rd "Z" dimension even though all particles can freely move in all 3 dimensions? Flattening out. Is there some sort of word or phrase which describes this behavior? Is it possible...
4. Divide by zero

Lorentz transformation shows that at the speed of light you divide by zero. Photons travel at the speed of light, but it isn't matter, but should that matter, matter of fact? Does this line of thinking lead anywhere, or should I terminate this world-line?
5. Plank time, Plank length

Doesn't this digitize the Universe? Does 1 Plank Time + 1 Plank Time = 2 Plank time? Does 1 Plank length + 1 Plank length = 2 Plankies?
6. OK FINE, magnetism is explained away by relativity

http://psi.phys.wits.ac.za/teaching/Connell/phys284/2005/lecture-01/lecture_01/node13.html But what about induced current? My brain is full now, can't think. hehe: http://www.physics.uoguelph.ca/applets/Intro_physics/kisalev/java/indcur/index.html
7. At what velocity.(sentence)

At what velocity........(sentence) At what velocity do 2 parallel moving electrons (or protons) attractive magnetic field equal (and therefore cancel out) the electrostatic repulsion?
8. Is pauli exclusion principle a force

If it takes energy to squeeze matter, then its a force at work right? And what is spin? I can put the quantized nature of spin in the back of my mind for a moment, but what the heck does spin do?
9. Whats the holdup with Fusion Power?

You got temperature and/or pressure, and one simple atom to play with. What's the big deal?
10. Double Slit experiment

Double split creates a wave interference pattern. Closing up one slit creates a particle like pattern (all hitting one spot). Does the closing up of one slit (allowing the particle to go through in only one narrow spot) measure its position (by the powers of Heisenburg Uncertainty Principle)...
11. Dragons are coming

"Dragons are coming" Someones hell bent on trying to make the unwashed more stupider then they already are. :yuck: :grumpy: :yuck: :grumpy:
12. Does anybody have a better analogy of describing space-time curvature?

The old 2D paper describing 3D curvature is a little lame because it uses gravity to describe gravity. You know, the little ball circling the 2D psuedo-black hole, well remove gravity and the ball would fly off the 2D paper, you cant use gravity to describe gravity. It would be like saying 1=1...
13. An odd sort of symmetry about E=MC^2

You sacrifice mass to create energy (energy is just mass with a velocity), and the faster mass moves (relativity) the more massive the mass gets, is there some sort of significance to that? I hate riddles.
14. What happens when you combine these wavelengths

Low level transmission of every electromagnetic wave starting from long -wave radio to gamma rays. Thousands of different transmitters not necessarilly being powerful at all, converging on one spot. Wouldnt this create massive electromagnetic spikes here and there? Just as if you were to...
