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.

comment How to prove the covariant derivative cannot be written as an eigendecomposition of the partial derivative?
A bunch of your equations here are not inverting the index of the denominator ($\frac1{B_\mu} = C^{\mu}$, not $C_\mu$ for some quantities $B,C$)

Was meaning to post this anyway after coming back from class: moved to meta. Please continue further discussion there.

@Dilaton The first question itself is way too broad, since it first requires you to make some delineation on what one means by life. Nor is it an astrobiology question, it is a general biology question. And the rest are not so related, they could be asked separately. Again, my point about the community members was that not all may have noticed the broadness, they just noticed that it was closed for the offtopicness.

Besides, IIRC xenobiology was not allowed on the old Astronomy.SE. This is one of those questions where the astronomy/physics of the post has been tackled and what is left is the biology. But the topicality is debatable.

Also, there is a good reason to closing old posts, not for the heck and fun of it. People tend to see posts on this site and ask questions similar to them. Having broad posts / off topic posts / open basic homework posts left open lead to more of the kind being asked.

Some people reopened it because they felt that it was not off topic (which was what it was closed as). And they may be correct on that. However, look at the question again, it is four questions. Topicality aside, it's objectively broad, @Dilaton. You can vote to reopen again if you feel that it isn't broad. Feel free to bring it up on meta instead. Moderators are entrusted with the binding vote and are allowed to apply it on posts where they are reasonably certain that the post is closeable. In this case, I agree that the post is probably on topic, which is why it was opened, but broad.
