    Yellowstone's Massive Volcano

    I think we're all forgetting the fact that by the time Yellowstone does go boom, we will be masters of space and time and have unlimited technological boundaries, also the we may have accidentally destroyed the Earth by then. :tongue:

    Do Monitors Ruin Eyesight?

    Ok, so I need this to be cleared up. I've been using 40 contrast/brightness on a CTR monitor. I used to have it to something really bright and my eyes would start to hurt after a while, when I toned it down (a lot) it really helped. But, if you went outside, it's really bright there's a lot more...

    David Blane's Card Tricks

    I was watching this little show last night on TLC of David Blane walking around the streets and doing his magic tricks. Some of it, I could believe was real, some of it, no way in hell. He actually levitated off the ground a few times, and it looked EXTREMELY real and all these little tricks he...

    Fetus Infetus (fetus in a man)

I was just dieing to know how this process works of a man growing a twin fetus inside of them. (By the way, they showed...

    Medical Lucid Dreaming

    Hmm, when I have a lucid dream, I am usually horribly terrified yet, I can't even see what's going on in my dream, and I WANT to wake up and get out, but yet I am drawn toward this terror... very strange... When I finally do wake up, I feel as if I have been transferred to another reality, like...

    Why does light accelerates after being slowed down

    Umm, photons simply bounce off molecules. That's why you actually see light in the first place without actually looking directly at the source. If you took a flashlight and turned it on in space, you wouldn't see the light beam unless your pointed it right at your eye.

    I was just curious to know whether most animals are right-handed (as humans are) or are they left-handed. But maybe it could be broke up into mammals, amphibians etc.

    Why do we laugh?

    I've never seen this discussion in a forum anywhere... but I'd really like to know if there is a scientific explanation for laughing. We seem to laugh on a daily basis and me, over the silliest of things. Simple controversial use of words can trigger laughing. But it always seems that something...

    Is time a thing or human concept?

    I think time is simply a distinction from one event to another. Like watching the second hand on a clock tick as guile said. Motion of things sort of define time. Imagine a universe where everything stood completely still; you'd be hard-pressed to determine whether time is flowing or not. And...

    Can you prove you exist?

    Maybe reality is simply brought about by consciousness and senses. If you've never heard sound before how could you really be sure it exists. If you've never seen anything before how could you really be sure it exists etc. Sense is the most fundamental aspect of reality (you can't describe to...

    Does increased velocity increase gravity?

    Black holes only form from one perspective and will not form from any other perspective. Rest-mass determines whether something will become a black hole or not. Read Doc's link.

    The slowest speed?

    Well if you had a car going 1 mph then you slowed it down to .5 mph then .25 mph then .00005 mph... how much farther can u go? Is it possible to continuously divide up speed so that it could be say, .00000000000000000001 even?

    The slowest speed?

    Just a little interesting question: Is it possible to slow something down to where its impossible to go any slower and that object has to seize to be in motion? Since there are quantums of energy, and motion is kinetic energy, there has to be a slowest speed right?
