@Wildcat care to explain why?

comment Is sea water more conductive than pure water because “electrical current is transported by the ions in solution”?
@AJP yes. This takes time (forever) though, since there is a solid-ion equilibrium for the impurities, when the ions start disappearing ions are created from the solid. But it will try to maintain the equilibrium so the number of new ions will be much smaller. This process will go on, effectively to infinity since the equilibrium laws won't let the amount of solid or ions disappear completely. Practically, there will be some point when these numbers become too small, but again, practically this is very far off.

comment How are magnetic fields transmitted?
Besides, when you have a rather established theory giving a prediction, when discussing theory it's pretty normal to assume the existence of the prediction.

comment How are magnetic fields transmitted?
@DeanK. there is no question of their speed of existence from the theoretical framework. It has also been verified a couple of times. There have been a couple of times gravitational waves seem to have been observed, too. I'm not sure, but I think LIGO has seen incontrovertible evidence of these waves, though they haven't seen anything interesting in them yet.

@DaveCoffman look at the date on that comment. I moderate Chem.SE, I know about it :P

comment Why do we care about black hole interiors' physics?
Spacetime doesn't really end at the horizon.

comment Why do we care about black hole interiors' physics?
@dcgeorge Predictions are the final goal; but a mathematically rigorous model is how you get there -- most of the theoretical research is driven by model-making rather than immediate predictive ability.

comment Countersteering a motorcycle
I don't think the wheels are actually moving laterally here. The motorcycle is tipping, that doesn't need the wheels to slip. I suggest you post an answer, I'm not really clear on what you're talking about.

comment Countersteering a motorcycle
@BlackbodyBlacklight countersteering is just another word for lending your weight to the centrepital force to create rotation. I solved the confusion in the question, I don't have to mention countersteering to do that.
