I like everything. Or just about. Eh, pretty close to that. That is all.

comment Why aren't all large stars black holes?
So when the fusion processes stop and gravity continues to compact the atoms, don't they begin to fuse past iron from heat/pressure (a byproduct of gravity), much like supernovae can fuse atoms beyond iron? If so, then the soon-to-be black hole would stabilize (at least for awhile) before it becomes an actual singularity.

comment Do airlocks in space decompress violently as they do in movies?
As for "then why do airlocks do this in movies?" I wasn't asking what the purpose was, I was looking for confirmation that it is unrealistic.

comment Do airlocks in space decompress violently as they do in movies?
Not at all what I said. I asked why air rushes out in airlocks in movies. I never asked about a scenario regarding how you could make air rush out of an airlock at crazy velocities or any such nonsense to suggest I was asking about a hypocritical situation.

@Wouter Gas expands in space because molecules bounce against each other, right? How would that be different than a solid? Is it just because gas isn't tightly held together (so it can move more freely)?

comment Are shadows underwater “wet”?
Not that I can do anything, but can we stop closing questions for obviously untrue reasons? What the user is asking here is pretty obvious: can shadows underwater be considered 'wet'? In any case, the question is fairly clear.

I believe that you knew the answer to this question when you posted it (or at least that's the impression that I get, and that is why so many people have downvoted this).

comment Composition of kinetic energy
Are you saying that energy is a just a number? If that's the case, then there would be absolutely no physical counterpart whatsoever. How would scientists even theorize the existence of an EM wave?

comment Composition of kinetic energy
@DavidH How can you have nothing (kinetic energy) made out of something? It seems like a ridiculous notion to me. If indeed kinetic energy is 'nothing', then it wouldn't be important enough to mention. I believe there must be some sort of substance, or at least energy in the vague sense, to constitute its existence.

comment Composition of kinetic energy
@Qmechanic This question is far from being a "duplicate" of the question you linked it to; it would make more sense to say that it could be answered by it. It is a very interesting topic, I must say, but the answer I was looking for was more concrete, (like if kinetic energy is made of subatomic particles or not).

comment Proof that the ground pushes you up
I originally took it off because I thought the tag "everyday-life" would never be a useful tag. It doesn't matter either way though, but I thought that you might like to know why I did it.
