Hehe...

Anyhoo, did you know I have an insane amount of black sox? And when all of those are in the laundry bin, it stinks like hell?

Bet you didn't know that... once they invent cameras with smell, I'll post a pic Razz

did you know that there is an extra-dimentional portal at the back of every washing machine, which leads to an alternate universe? there's an evil demon in there that requires constant sacrifices of single socks. if he is not appeased this way, he will dye your favorite white clothes a faded, pink colour?

also, you can get a clear path to the buffet table at any party simply by saying "hi, im an accountant. I had an interesting day today."

Did you know that mosquitos have never killed anybody; the parasite Plasmodium they carry in their saliva does?

I did know that. Dragons of old were more serpentine that modern renditions, due to the symbolic connection between serpents and the devil/evil. The dragon still commonly symbolizes the devil in Christianity (ex. the devil is portratyed as a dragon in Revelation.)

*checks shark jaw material* Well, it's true that the jaw has extra mineral deposits, but it's still not strictly bone.
Also, in older sharks the cartilage may be partially calcified, making it more bone-like.

Did you know that God sent forth two she-bears to tear forty children into bloody pieces?

Did you know that inside a solid sphere of mass, the force of gravity varies linearly with distance to the center? Therefore, one would feel a weaker force due to gravity as one approached the center.

Did you know that Merriam-Webster defines inertia as "a property of matter by which it remains at rest or in uniform motion in the same straight line unless acted upon by some external force?" Did you know that this is the same definition of inertia which is forwarded by Newton's First Law, and that it is the definition which would be given by the average physicist? Did you also know that I have a BA in physics from the University of Chicago?

Did you know that I have 22 black socks? A total of 14 pair. And seeing as I change my socks every day... those socks in the laundry bin were being s(t)ockpiled for two weeks...

Okay, now you're confusing me. What's the difference between resisting acceleration and remaining at a constant velocity?

Resistance to accelerate (inertia) is based soley on mass.

Momentum, the resistance to changes in acceleration whilst in motion, is based on both the mass and veolicty of the object in question.

I had a hard time figuring out the difference myself, so I think Blaster would explain it better than I could.

Well, not quite. First one has to realize is that velocity is a vector quantity, as such it has both a magnitude and a direction. Acceleration is a change in velocity over time, so acceleration can involve a change in speed, or a change in direction of motion, or both.

A particle can have momentum without having mass, so long as it moves at c (e. g., a photon).

But all that is a bit of a digression. What you are not recognizing, Cortle Steeze, is that inertia is a concept, not a quantity. Inertia is the tendency of an object to remain at constant velocity unless acted upon by an outside force. It is a property of matter. It is not until Newton's Second Law is introduced that it is said HOW matter reacts to an outside force. It is here that we see that F=dp/dt, or, in the usual form, F=ma. It is this m (mass) that we can quantify. Anyone who is using "inertia" interchangeably with "mass" is being glib.

AAAGH! MY HEAD HURTS!!

*pow*
(did you know that, in quantum mechanics, an electron is spinning both up *and* down until you look at it? then the probability waveform collapses, and it falls from this "quantum superposition" into one of the 2 above mentioned states. this is also direct proof that smart people can know a lot about some things, but other things will cause their head to go "pow".

Remind me to shoot my glib A-level physics teacher if I ever go back as an Old Boy.

Did you know that monkeys can suffer from male pattern baldness?

Like, ever? 'Cause I don't think Discovery Channel has been around that long.

Probably one out of every four living Americans.

Damn, you're sharp...

Anyway, did you know that the Dutch language has a word for 'casually knocking off things from e.g. a table with one's half erect penis'?

I found out just a few minutes ago and it's disturbing me greatly. How can there be a word for that?!

Aramor might know about it, since apparently the word originated in the area of Holland where he lives...

I know that word, but not with that meaning.

As far as I know, zwaffelen is when a man slaps a woman (or another man) in the face with his penis.

Me and some friends broadened the definition and made zwaffeling do-able with any object... like:

"Hey dude, ever been zwaffeled with a keyboard?
"No, why?"
*BAM*

So I got this writing gig with Goodfellows Comics. I do the storylines for whatever obscure underground comic they've managed to wrestle legal ownership over and some art school drop-out does the art. In return they publish my new book series.

I've got Zwaffel your way into her heart in print, 50 ways to zwaffel another ready and the Prattchettesque parody, Alien zwaffels predator in progress.

It must be dutch. In greenland they have hundreds of words for snow, so it's logical that in holland there is a word for penis violent. There's a logic in there... somewhere

LMAO!

To stay (barely) on topic, did you know that I really try to avoid posting only interjections will no real content behind them?
