comment What does it mean to “bin” in a spectroscopy context
This brings to mind a visual image of parts in bins. One is taking continuous (analog) signal values and coalescing them into discrete categories, one per bin. ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/61hKnNidNkL._SY300_.jpg

comment Why do we use kilograms instead of newtons to measure weight in everyday life?
Just an old way of using the word weigh to mean lift.

That's a fantastic piece of science!

comment How do whisky stones keep your drink cold?
They would get in your mouth. You want something heavier than water by a good amount.

@Frederic: Okay, I thought it would cause such a visible artifact, but wasn't sure because I wondered about an equal but opposite relative effect.

comment How can I explain the scientific basis of the constant speed of light to a $c$-decay proponent?
So if C-Decay believes in a logarithmic C-decay that can explain a star being visible to us that is 16K light years away, but the universe is only 6-7k years old; then I believe they posit a logarithmic decay, not a magic linear decay to the current constant c, then this can be discounted utterly, and with certainty, even on the basis of only the last 100 years of accurate measured data, correct, because we have not a slight decay only visible on high precision instruments, but really no confirmable change-over-time in the last say 100 years?
