Posts Now Demonstrating Relativistic Effects

    On my browser, faster posts now have less length on the x-axis, <---->. Is this the same in your inertial frame?

    I wouldn't know; I'm never inert.

    be draged and droped, or am i missing some trick ?

    I don't know. My posts have been smiley-free since 2003. I'm a member of Smilies Anonymous.

    I am sitting here with a huge bag of M&Ms a substitute for rum and coke.

    I conquored booze 25 years ago. That's why I have the stamina to resist smilies today.

    You can try sorting them in alphabetical order.

    Damn, I have a ROFL habit. With enough booze, I might just kick.

    Yes, I've notice the same X axis aberration.

    I normally have a long X axis, but not anymore, when I post quick.

    I don't even know what you guys are talking about here? :confused: Maybe the upgrade only works best on Macs, so you all have to switch to Mac! :devil: :rofl:

    It is something about the shrinkage effect, Moonbear.
    Only guys know about it.

    Do I have to mention lengthy contractions?

    I prefer timely dilations, but that's just me, I guess.

    On my screen, your post, for instance, is half an inch wider than pattylou's just above you. Each post is a different width depending on how many words there are in it. As I scroll down a thread I can see all the different posts changing widths from one to the next.

    That's what is so strange.
    I can see that GIRTH contraction is complementary to some timely dilation, but contraction of LENGTH??
    I'll never understand relativity..:frown:

    All I know is that it leads to a mass increase.

    You remembered you password then.
