    I'm sorry, Cyrus, but I don't think you're ready for that information yet.

    To quote Stewie Griffin, of Family Guy to one of his minions:

    SG: "...and cut me some water!"
    M: "Sir, we can't cut water"
    SG: "Do I need to do all the thinking?! Freeze the water and then cut it!"

    Quite obviously, our major contribution to science is in our research of fish slapping.

    "Sorry - no matches. Please try some different terms."
    If it's a joke, it's a pretty good one. :rofl:

    My version of string theory is on a 16-manifold where little invisible fish slap strings that cause them to vibrate in different ways.

    In the area of Mathematics, I think PF has been instrumental in settling the 1 = .999... controversy.

    While visiting my sister's restaurant one afternoon, one of the employees (carrying a stainless steel bucket) pulled me to the side and inquired how he might capture steam in his bucket? I replied "HUH"...and investigated further.

    Apparently, someone had sent him across the street to McDonald's (with the bucket) to request they fill it with steam...to do some cleaning.

    I looked around to make sure the joke wasn't on me (it wasn't)...so... I suggested he visit PF to seek assistance.

    Did anyone help the young lad?

    I think it's the discussions about jumping in a falling elevator.
