    I don't think it's a question, it's an imperative.


    I think instead we should come up with 6.02 x 10^23 reasons why a Tele is the best guitar to play.

    E=MC2 posits they are the same thing.
    So where do we start and where do we stop?

    I have asked this before.
    Do any of you guys suspect we could utilize the earth's electomagnetism to power our lifestyles?

    It's a thought anyway...

    ...not electromagnatism but this is a cool idea.

    I did make it up, and thank you.

    Kids are natural scientists/chemists/etc. I guess it's because they still have a huge imagination, and their innate sense of curiosity hasn't been whittled down yet.

    Keep her well supplied with ideas and encouragement. The world needs all the scientists it can get!

    Anatomy is considered one of the hard sciences since it's quantifiable. So consider the human heart. This four chambered pump is composed of a unique type of muscle coordinated by a self-perpetuating electrical impulse. A small group of cells in the right atrium initiate the impulse (the SA node) and it travels along a pathway to another group of specialized cells in the middle of the heart (the AV node) where the signal splits to the right and left ventricles. This electrical impulse changes the polarity on the surface of the muscle cells and initiates muscle contraction resulting in the pumping of blood that keeps us alive.

    Now sometimes the SA node fails-could be damage due to lack of oxygen. In that case another small group of cells in the right atrium automatically step forward and begins pacing the heart. If all the cells in the right atrium stop their pacing role then a group of cells in the middle of the heart step forward and they become the pacemaker. If this area of heart muscle stops then a group of cells in the ventricles step forward. Every muscle cell in the heart has the inherent ability to pace the heart. It's the ultimate backup system.

    This phenomenon has been studied and verified extensively in the medical treatment of heart disease over the last 100 years or so. But I daresay it predates all the scientific study about it, or even all recorded study known. It's a pretty safe bet to say the human body has existed in it's present form since the first human body. This "leaning toward life" design has been for the benefit of everyone who has ever drawn a breath regardless of their personal beliefs. And the human body is filled with such examples. And so is the natural world around us. [Out of place comment removed]

    Those are just the basics, stuff you can experiment with in your garage. It's the sub-atomic stuff that continues to evolve and revise, backfiring into quantum mechanics.

    You might be a tad short on resistance resulting in a direct short and a cold dog. If ya get a really big dog it might work.

    And leave religion out of everything on this forum guys.
    The poor mods are tired and short handed.

    We had a hot dog cooker that worked like that when I was a kid. Stick 6 hot dogs in it, close the lid to complete the circuit and wait about 5 minutes. It worked pretty good.

    We had one of those, too, but I thought it imparted an awful taste to the hotdog. Kinda like eating the body of someone hot off the electric chair.

    You mean as opposed to eating the body of someone you've slow roasted over hickory charcoal?

    :eek:






    :D

    I know what you mean. I had a buddy who used to cook hot dogs with the forks-o-death and they always tasted like the smell resulting from running a set of electric racing cars too fast and too long when you were a kid. Haha.

    Hey look above^^^. It's the missing non-rabbit I was just reading about in the St. Cleve Chronicle and Linwell Advertiser. He was hiding under a pancake the whole time!

    Often those who've put a lifetime's work into learning and mastering the complexities and interaction and history of life on earth are ill-equiped to cope with other's coming up with their answer so effortlessly.

    Scientists can be mean.

    We're* all just flyspecks on the windshield of the universe.


    *Speaking of "we," at about 6.8 billion of us, we are a good 4 billion to the plus side of what can live a good sustainable life on this planet.

    Kids, there are too many of us.

    Here's a blurb from today's "What's New" by my friend Bob Park at the University of Maryland:


    4. FEEDING THE WORLD: CAN THERE BE ANOTHER GREEN REVOLUTION?
    No! Norman Borlaug was not some organic farmer. High-yield agriculture
    demands more machinery, fossil fuel, fertilizer, and water, as well as
    transportation from where food is produced to where it's needed.


    It's all about the people.
