  1. Well easy enough for some reason when I look at the member list for "Thumper" (what I want to change my name to) there is no member with this name but when I try to change it apparently another member is using it. Its not the person's login name Im pretty sure, as my login name is available.

    Eratosthenes and some Circumference

    the measurement wasn't accurate due to the somewhat crude nature of both measuring the angle of elevation and the distance between the two cities. it is rather accurate however, as it was the first measure of the circumference of the earth ever done... you could replicate this experiment today, it just requires good timing and a small amount of planning. two other interesting things you could estimate from the results are the volume and surface area of the earth, all you have to do is assume that the earth is a sphere which gives a decent amount of error but still rather good for so long ago (not sure when Eratosthenes did this, but if it was after 225 BC he would have had the formulas proven by Archimedes and been able to calculate the surface area at least). the surface area from the given radius is 487,009,391 sq km (real value 510,100,000 sq km so error of 4.5%) volume from given radius is 1,055,394,856,531 cu km (real value 1,083,210,000,000 so error of 2.6%)

    Pokemon Forever

    what they should do is have a game where the trainers have to fight pokemon and pokeballs don't exist, but then halfway through they invent pokeballs so they can start capturing the pokemon instead of just killing them

    Eratosthenes and some Circumference

    Measurements taken at Alexandria (A) and Syene (S) that diagram is rather explanatory of how he did it the reason why the sun is at its zenith over the city of Syene is because it is located on the tropic of cancer where this can occur on the summer solstice. while he would have measured an angle of elevation of 0 degrees in Syene as the sun was at its zenith, in Alexandria at the same time on the summer solstice the angle of elevation was 7°12' which is 1/50th of a circle. as the degree measurement was 1/50th of a circle, the arc's measurement was 1/50th of the earth's circumference. he figured out the arc measurement from the known distance between the two cities (5000 stadia or 927.7 km), and then figured that every degree in the circumference is equal to estimated 700 stadia from this. then 700 x 360 is 252,000 stadia or approx 39,690 km (error < 2%, as actual circumference is 40,075 km) diagram of it including calculations you can also figure out the diameter/radius of the earth by using these results, as if the circumference is calculated as 39,690 km then: 39690 = 2πr r = 6,316.86 km 6316.86 x 2 = d d = 12,633.72 km

  21. when the government is run by cybernetically superior humans or robots, maybe there should be less transparency. governments however currently are run by fallible humans who often make mistakes, and transparency is almost necessary with this.

    youtube (in chrome)

    might be your settings or a bug Some Flash player screens don't respond to mouse clicks correctly in the Chrome browser, but not "Pause." In the Channel player, any click in the player, including the Action Bar, results in a "Pause/Play" Toggle. This is the same for other sites. like "LiveLeak" with the Chrome browser. The makes "Volume" and "Full Screen" buttons disabled. This is a Chrome bug that I think has been reported. I hope. Also try moving the mouse to the right side (or a little further) to find the action field for the button you are trying to click. This is for some player screens, again in Chrome.
  23. [speech 80] There will be no shooting in this classroom, now put the gun down and leave. [Guns 40] That's a 12 gauge, right? That could do a lot of damage. Please don't do this. These kids are innocent. [NCR] I've got men outside that will put you down if you start shooting. Give me the gun and go outside.
