comment Has the photon both gravitational and inertial mass?
Which results are you talking about? The frequency IS related to the change in frequency. Time dilation is a relative number, i.e "twice as slow". If the original frequency is 1000Hz, the new frequency will be 500Hz. For 10000Hz it will be 5000 Hz.

No its not sci-fi, it is just a little confused.

comment Attractive higgs force and inflation
Thanks for the thorough answer, and the experimental results that show a GUT scale inflation.

comment Does kinetic friction increase as speed increases?
I meant to say the box's motion does not matter, since it is much slower than the particals.

comment Melting and Boiling Points of Odd Materials
Brick will melt, as it is mostly an aluminosilicate so will be a lot like glass. Complex organic compounds like cellulose in paper will decompose before melting/boiling.

comment How much does the Earth's rotation affect a golf ball?
@Padarom: Yes it would still affect it. The ground doesn't magically prevent the "Corellolis effect" from existing. However, the ground friction would partially counteract the effect by "dragging" the ball along with Earths rotation.

comment 1 Tesla electromagnet?
Materials saturate, meaning that the impressive B = 200000*knI hits a limiting B, above which the relative permeability drops off to 1, bringing us back to B = knI

comment Effect of humidity on static electricity
The main mechanism is probably the adsorption of atmospheric water molecules on surfaces, a function that depends on humidity. This water film, which may even mobilize ions, makes surfaces more conductive (NOT the air!). Like anti-static spray, this allows charges to dissipate.

comment Is it possible to create artificial gravity by magnetizing iron in the blood stream?
@Anixx: Yes that is a good way to put it. I just made the scaling laws more robust.
