Oh wow, thanks for that laugh. "I believe it was Einstein that said if you travel at light-speed you can be your own grandfather. Therefore light-speed is impossible." "Not that the moon's a planet, but it has no gravity." Then there's this gem:

"Yo, i think going the speed of light is possible, but it may be easier to complete in space. Where their is no stress. has anyone though about how much radiation is in space?"

What on Earth does that even mean? Is he trying to say that the only reason we can't travel at light-speed is air resistance, but it can be done in space?

It just shows how tons of people have a complete lack of logical thinking. I remember a thread about a hoverboard...
http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread134016/pg1

here's the link, its funny because he says
it is about amplifying the tiny natural pulses of an electromagnet, a feature not commonly known about, unless you look very hard on the internet

wow, just wow

It's not like despicable use of logic is made by its participants; they just state absurd things... but they sure are incredibly funny to read. Makes you wonder if all this scientific vulgarisation is a good thing or not though.

I particularly like

Yo, i think going the speed of light is possible, but it may be easier to complete in space. Where their is no stress. has anyone though about how much radiation is in space?

Poor bastard. :tongue2:

c = speed of light = 3*10^cm/s; 186,000 mps; 300,000 k/s

beautiful.

The 4th post was actually going rather well for the first few words. Then they remembered to be idiots.

Fighter Master's post was going well until the lack of typing stopped and then he started talking.

oops...
although relativity has pointed out that the rate of perceived time passage can vary depending on other factors like mass and kinetic energy (due to velocity, etc.) time still moves forward ... our physicists' definition of time being able to change scales just means the speed of how fast things happen can vary in certain conditions.

And another gem

light speed is slow for space travel. i don't think its veasable to become your grandfather at 186000m/ps

:rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: and look at the motto of the site at the top left! "Deny Ignorance"

I guess the makers of the site need to re-focus their efforts on exactly who they attract to their forums.

"This artical got me to thinking there's labs that have clamed to have goton light to go 300 TIMES faster then normal and at a normal 186,000mph (apx) that comes out to a woppion 55.800.000 yes that's a trip to Mars in under an hour . "

I guess light slowed down quite a bit :rofl:

let's look at how stupid this is. schmidt1989, i am assuming was born in 1989. meaning that he is half-way through high school. I was bor in 1992. I am in 8th grade. schmidt thinks that travleing at the speed of light will make you become your grandfather. I understand the *real* concepts of relativity, and the *real* grandfather paradox. this puts schmidt at a:
6th grade level.

OMG! :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: This sounds like something out of a JayWalking episode on the Tonight Show. :rofl:

Only possible way to go back in time by speed is going faster than light. but then you will only be in the past away from earth... You can't be in the past ON earth.

:rofl: Someone should stop them before they hurt themselves, but I can't stop laughing long enough.

Sadly, I was about to ask what ages anyone thought these people were. These sound like those "History according to 4th graders" type jokes teachers pass around with the really awful answers given on tests. Even their writing style seems like an elementary school level.

"I don't remember the actual amount of time lost at the speed of light but for some reason this figure sticks in my mind: For every year traveling at the speed of light, 40 years are lost. "


"Traveling at the speed of light without manipulating gravity is impossible."


"oh ok i see. would it be easier to distort gravity on a planet with gravity, like earth, or one without, like the moon...not that its a planet but it doesn't have any gravity. "


I wonder why they think that Earth has gravity, but moon somehow doesnt?

I am really really tempted to post a link to timecube on there and see how many people believe in it.

Oh god, abortion shoudl be legal and these people should have been aborted a looooooooooooooooooooooooooooong time ago.

(1) Space travel is not easy and the risk of death is always present. For example Apollo-1, Apollo 13, and Challenger. I'm sure there are a few more shuttle failures to mention here. Space travel is tough. Thats why rocket scientists have to be so smart.

Yah I remember watching those Apollo SHUTTLE missions all the time.

(2) Satellites are launched by all nations. The Russians were the first to do it.

Yah, everyone remember that satellite zimbabwe launched last week?

(3) Why has America or any other Country attempted to go to the Moon since 1969, if it was so important then, why is it no longer important ?

it says in his profile that 'he hearts astronamy'. I wonder how much time he spent researching instead of looking at pictures of planets

his sig was also wrongly quoted from carl sagan's 'contact'

Your jumping to conclusions as well, we have had one major disaster, that was Columbia, if Discovery is found to have any crippling problems, the Russians are always there to help if it gets ugly.

Disgusting

Wait, wait, wait! Someone actually had a proper answer to that one! :bugeye:
It is well know that there are certain events in physics that are reversible, and those that are irreversible.

For example, the birth of a baby is irreversible. How could you possibly unbirth it?

Not doubting you but could you give us a few examples.

Please don't use communications as an example.

I personally think the money wasted in NASA could be much better used to impact the lives of many daily.

What the hell? Might as well ask "Prove evolution is real, oh and don't use animals as an example"

i doubt its a hoax the moon landing and stuff, as for the shuttle it is OLD and I am sure they are due for retirement? don't USA have some new spacecraft that can be used like planes but can carry double the pay load the shuttle could and they use a new type of engine?

My IQ: 132...130...120...110...80...40...-30...

And most of these items could have been invented without spending BILLIONS to launch a craft into space.

Yah because we realized that there was a cheap and boring way to develop something and a incredibly expensive, dangerous, and exciting way to develop something and we of course, chose the latter for the fun of it.

Uhh Solar Panels they wouldn't be nearly as efficient as they are now without NASA involvement. And there ain't no such thing as a free lunch(= No such thing as "free energy")

heh, efficient. I suppose its all relative.

The shuttle launch pads are practically in my back yard, and while its sad to lose the crew, and yes there has been more than one crew lost, we get the added pleasure of possible radioactive fallout.

Well if it kills you, it'll all be worth it.
