And I was just about to attempt to work it out. Thank you pig man
I object to this "pig" word. Nowhere does it appear in my name.


I couldn't be bothered to right you name so i sought an alternative. I sought........pig man

Well, if you say it fast it does sound like "piggy" towards the end.
Aye, lemme hola at you
Aye girl, you with the fat ass
Aiite, **** you then                                                                                                                                                                                                  
Gold is for the mistress
Silver for the maid
Copper for the craftsman cunning at his trade
But iron - cold iron - is master of them all

If you changed the "last" for "previous" or "first" then it'd be a paradox/contradiction, but as it stands the phrase is ok.

So; If we are all made by atoms and they all react according to their electrons, and we all have the same kinds of atoms and molecules (therefore all of our brains act due to electric attraction - or whatever is the correct term), including our brains, how can something as free will exist?

:lol:, thanks for the depression.

But I agree. We're governed by how we were brought up. That is all.
nice bum chum.

Two men was in love with the Sultans daughter, so in order to decide who should marry her the Sultan ordered a compitition between them, and the man who came last to his castle would marry his daughter. So the men jumped on the horses and started riding through the desert, but since both of them wanted to come last, it went very slowly. After three days they were out of food and water and stopped by an oasis, where they met an old wise man. Desperately they told him their dilemma, and the wise man uttered two words before they jumped on the horses and rode the fastest way to the Palace.

What did the wise man say?

I actually know the answer to this one though.

Stuck on a school question? Find something unsolvable? Post it here.

I'll start (from my Physics homework):

A woman looks at herself in a magnifying converging mirror whose focal length is 20cm. If her face is 10cm from the mirror,
a. At what distance from the mirror is her image?
b. What is the magnification of her face?


Harder than it looks...  :x
a. 10cm
b. Read the info on the back of the mirror, if it says 2x it's because it's two times bigger. If it says 10x it's ten times bigger, and so on...

Easy, huh?  :lol:

Um, no. That's not how mirrors work.

Her image is 20 cm behind the surface of the mirror, magnified 200%, I believe.

When dealing with concave mirrors, the inverse of the focal length is equal to the sum of the inverse distance between the object and the mirror and the inverse distance between the image and the mirror. Solving 1/f = 1/d0 + 1/di for di we get -20, which is 20 cm behind the mirror.

The magnification is equal to the negation of the distance between the object and the mirror over the distance between the image and the mirror. Solving M = -(di/do) for M, we get 2.


@Bulle: I know that one too, or at least a variation of it.

I actually know the answer to this one though.

The wise man said, "Bulle misremembered." And there was much abuse and disappointment at the ruined riddle.

On the other hand if the sultan had said the man whose horse came last would marry his daughter then the old man would have said "switch horses".

Yeah, that makes more sense. As it was, I thought the old man had just said "The douche wants you never to come back."

If a man says something alone in the woods, with no woman to hear him, is he still wrong?

From a woman's perspective: Yes
From a man's perspective: He's too damn glad he doesn't have to deal with one to care about it

That's 'cause it's already been answered. He's right, though.

**** physics and Science in generall. I choose to be ignorant than sit through that.

Is it better to have the gift of flight, or to be stuck on the ground, dreaming of flight?

Seeing as you left out the word "rather"...

Suit yourself, I suppose. I guess not everybody likes knowing why things happen as they do.
