    I'm really bad at English!

    Confused: Don't worry about it, I didn't really do well in English in school and I have no idea what the hell a prepositional phrase, subject-verb agreements and transitive/intransitive vers are. And seriously? You don't need it if you aren't going into linguistics or you're not a professional...

    Intellegent turn ons?

    I find it hard to imagine someone being more intelligent then me... Sure, knowing more? Okay. But like... learning stuff quicker, understanding concepts easier and making logic jumps easier... I can't imagine it >.>;

    Where is selfadjoint?

    :'( My message to too short. Edit: Is it bad that I am probably more upset about some physicist that I hardly knew who died then I would be if a family member die? Although I'm not -that- upset, I'm more upset right now then I have been for years.

    Please verify the authenticity of this law

    I don't think not "knowing" a cause is equal to not having a cause.

    Please verify the authenticity of this law

    Where did you see this 'law' posted? Because the way it is phrased is weird. But it looks basically like the definition of Cause and Effect, although, it wouldn't say that they follow the laws of "physics" because "physics" is a study. Maybe if it didn't have the "laws" part, or said "Universe"...

    Do absolutes exist?

    Even Math has it's axioms. I'm not siding either way, because to say "No" would be saying that the answer "No, there are no absolute truths" is an absolute truths. And I'm not saying "Yes" because they're might not be! You could say, it has to be yes, because it can't be no. But again that...

    A monk problem

    Sorites paradox

    The paradox is demonstrating exactly that Luke. That there is a problem in drawing a line where a heap is no longer a heap. And also, the nature of language. A heap is still a heap if you take one little sand from the heap of sand, lets keep taking one grain of sand, where do you draw the line...

    Darn, Blackcat is a good anime :P. Dual Vocals are great. http://www.myspace.com/scarsymmetry Listen to The Illusionist. I like some of their other songs better, but Illusionist is probably the best one they have on their myspace.

    Is all logic/reasoning circular?

    How would you go about proving that all logic/reasoning is circular without committing the fallacy of circular logic? Bar axioms, logic/reasoning is not circular.

    Best Metal Bands ever

    So? They like technicality more then other stuff. Or they like them too, just not as much as DT, or they disagree with your perception of other musicians as being 'better'. Those people are just retards. See above So what if they don't like them? Edit: Also, Blackcat is an awesome...

    Donno about America, but here in Australia the amount of meat you get in Subway is perfectly fine. Just as much as in that flash presentation.

    Chi: A real force?

    All non-contact stuff, like "I wiggle my finger, you're 10m away and you fall" is basically set up. However, semi-contact stuff, or soft-contact stuff can either be setup or Aikido/Aikijujutsu which is VERY clever biomechanics and physics. Only difference between Aikido and Aikijujutsu is...

    Chi: A real force?

    The first part was just Aikido, the non-contact part was just really bad acting. In Aikido the uke learn to roll/fall on the slightest force so they don't hurt (unlike Aikijujutsu) which is why it looks like they're not doing anything. But with the right technique those first set of moves are...

    Could the aether be time?

    I don't follow your logic petm. Thousands of years ago you couldn't measure anything smaller then what you could see, therefore those smaller distances at that time were abstracts?
