Did you know?

"Son of a gun" is not a term that comes from the old myth about a soldier being shot in rather . . . warm places.

The term really comes from the gunport of a ship. Anyone born there (or whose birth was started there, as was more often implied) would be a "son of a gun".

Did you know???

Betty White is older than pre-sliced bread.
No joke, look it up.
EDIT: Did you know???
Based on the information I've been given, we can't discount the possibility that ET is also older than pre-sliced bread.
ET, is this the case?

Fair enough.
But time travel doesn't mean immortality. Immortality is impossible, because EVENTUALLY something will happen to end it (after all, no system can survive without an input. Even someone with nanobots (like the star-brothers and star-sisters in Voyagers III: Star Brothers by Ben Bova) would perish if starved long enough. Kinda like . . . what'shisface? That guy Hercules fought who was half-giant, and healed from contact with the Earth?
EDIT: Antaeus, thanks vaguely googling, "hercules giant fought earth".



Did you know???

Me inventing a time machine would create a paradox.
Not, if my theory is correct (time is like spaghetti, it doesn't matter if it doubles back on itself, it'll go forward eventually), due to time travel, but due to my dilemma.

Leonard Hofstadter wrote:Interesting.
Sheldon Cooper wrote:Yeah, it really takes the pressure off.

Except I KNOW I have bad judgement, and as such probably wouldn't go back in time and give it to myself.
But if future me had bad judgement too, then they might go back in time and try to give it to himself/herself/itself . . . or is it myself?
Anyway, if I went back in time and the bad judgement worked out, I would, obviously, realize that I had bad judgement, and thus in the future use it to go to the past future and NOT give it to myself. Of course, that means new past me would just go along and create a time machine, and so on and so forth until the gradual changes in the loop became great enough that I ended up not inventing the time machine and leaving myself/himself/herself/itself very well enough alone.
Or would he/she/it/I just not give it to myself?

Did you know? The only way to become he perfect human is a. Be an egotistical maniac and b. Kill everyone else on earth

Perfection is subjective, so if you were the only human and believed you were perfect technically you have the only opinion and therefore you must be correct.

Right?

Who said there isn't alien life that has an opinion? Or that dolphins don't have opinions? If nothing and no one else was aware of you/your existence, then maybe it would be possible. But even then, what if your BODY didn't think you were perfect?
You can't say your body doesn't have an opinion because you aren't a body whisperer, like me.

So is the universe a closed system? If so, that's a problem. We need to open that sυcker up.
Perhaps containing some level of entropy would lead to perfection? You couldn't say yay or nay, without evidence, unless you were perfect and thus all-knowing.
Logically, a perfect being would know they are perfect for certain. Since neither of us can say for certain that one or both of us is perfect, we must not be.
I suggest we implement Newton's Flaming Laser Sword before we enter a long and useless discussion about entropy's effect on perfection.

How do you know that a level of entropy isn't required for perfection to be reached?

Did you know that if you search the word 'askew' on Google it tilts the browser window, and if you search 'do a barrel roll' it rotates the browser all the way around?

I have, in other circumstances, been referred to as Nostalgiadamus, A.K.A. "The Man Who Saw Yesterday."
"Mit der Dummheit kämpfen Götter selbst vergebens."
("Against stupidity, the gods themselves contend in vain.")
-- Friedrich Schiller (1759–1805)
Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.
-- Philip K Dick

What happens when all the renewable energy runs out?
-- Victoria Ayling

English isn't much of a language for swearing. When I studied Ancient Greek I was delighted to discover a single word - Rhaphanidosthai - which translates roughly as "Be thou thrust up the fundament with a radish for adultery."

Well, if we assume that you still aren't perfect, you can't know that for sure. You would have to observe everything at every point in time and know everything about it all to say that perfection is impossible.

No . . . I did know the barrel roll.

Did you know???

Be careful on Mr. Doob's in-browser javascript editor, because while you CAN save your code, it runs that code every time you re-open the page. Thus, if you write something that crashes the browser, every time you open the page . . . yeah. Until you clear your cookies. :furious: Plus you lose the code.

That's just not nice. I misspelled, and that's once in more than 700 posts.
I'll be honest, it just became twice. I misspelled misspelled.
Roy Hunter wrote:Russell's Teapot is about how to treat unfalsifiable claims

The whole point of Russell's Teapot is that ANY claim is unfalsifiable. It might be really improbable, but it's still possible, and thus cannot be proven false. To state that I did not type this is unlikely, but still possible. Perhaps I'm a redpill, and so I didn't REALLY type this. I don't know, and thus cannot be sure it isn't true.

What, did you think I had something better to do with my time? I have read about it.
