#MySenseOverIntelliSense

I think that Clueless was very deep. I think it was deep in the way that it was very light. I think lightness has to come from a very deep place if it's true lightness. — Alicia Silverstone

I frequent Stack Overflow and Science Fiction & Fantasy, the latter of which is all fun and games until you get a random week-long suspension for politely and briefly expressing surprise that people still care whether Han or Greedo "officially" shot first (get over it!), then the officiating moderator entirely ignores all your requests for a dialogue…

Upvotes are not for "correcting" downvotes. It is not your job to take away somebody else's right to vote. Only upvote if you thought that it was a great question/answer, not because you disagreed with somebody else's downvote.

comment If the Earth is in constant motion then why do we say that an object is in a state of rest?
@Joe: "Learnt in year 8 / 8th grade", I would guess. Seems pretty obvious?

Not sure where else you expect the charge to end up?

comment Where does light go after it enters a black hole?
@Nick2253: I don't think that's necessarily a problem. We drive across national borders all the time.

comment Are Hubble Telescope Images in true color?
"than they would appear to the human eye" Arguably, we have no idea how anything appears to the human eye other than to our own. :)

comment Are Hubble Telescope Images in true color?
Isn't this also basically how our eyes work? Light intensity is always a one-axis system. You can only pull out colour by simultaneously capturing an image with varying wavelength filters (e.g. the rods & cones in our eyes). The difference is in the definition of "simultaneously" being used, but I still think we can safely call this "true-colour".

@DigitalTrauma: :P It is indeed a similar question!

comment Why can't we see light travelling from point A to B?
I remember all the news articles at the time being equally misleading. Everybody said "omg a camera that is fast enough to show light actually moving", which is complete nonsense.

comment Why can't we see light travelling from point A to B?
I'm not sure whether this is a question about light echoes, or a fundamental misunderstanding of what it means to see something.

comment How to emulate 40ft (12 m) of water?
@DavidRicherby: I suppose the force is still there even though (or even "more so since") the water itself doesn't absorb it by compressing? [I'm not a physicist :P]

Hang on... if water doesn't compress, then what is "pressurized water"? o.O

You could always read the cited papers. Wikipedia should not be treated as a primary source anyway...
