Just from listening to The Show Goes On. Dear evolution, how did you manage to create a being that is so consciously affected by something as intangible as time moving forward. Who says we have no sense of the fourth dimension: time? We’re so ridiculously sensitive to it.
On Destroying Mother Ocean
Recently, the International Programme on the State of the Ocean (IPSO), a workshop consisting of high-level marine scientists, declared that the oceans were headed for hell. The ocean, like the patient mother of a polluting brat (us), absorbs our carbon dioxide emissions, saving us from dramatic global warming. But being the ignorant land dwellers that we are, we have no idea there’s even a...
Anonymous asked: but it wouldn't unscramble that particular egg. it would just create an entirely new one, right?
Now that I’m working, I’ve ironically had much more time to read the news. Some interesting facts for the night. 1. When a star is born, it sprays two jets of water (hydrogen and oxygen atoms) at 80 times the velocity of an AK47 with a total volume equaling 100 million times the volume of the Amazon river into space for up to a thousand years. That would be a crazy sight to see. 2....

Critical Thinking Question
John von Neumann, the co-inventor of the computer, was once asked a question by a friend. Two trains, 100 miles apart, travel towards each other. Train 1 travels at 30 mph. Train 2 travels at 20 mph. A bird, sitting on top of Train 1, flies at 120 mph to Train 2. Once it gets to Train 2, it flies back to Train 1, and then continues the process. By the time the two trains collide, how many miles...
An Interesting Idea
One of the most common textbook ways to describe a chemical change, which is irreversible, is scrambling an egg. There’s no way to unscramble an egg, thereby lowering it’s entropy, or disorder. But actually there is. Just feed the scrambled egg to a hen, and it’ll eventually reproduce an unscrambled egg (Richard Gregory). The same process done with a human machine would probably...
