So im just sitting here waiting for food and was wondering why and how does my stomach makes noises when its hungry? And why does it have to be so freaking loud?
So, when your body thinks that it’s about to receive food, either because hunger hormones are telling your brain to go get food, or because your brain knows you’re about to receive food, the process of digestion pre-starts.
This involves all sorts of muscle contractions, gasses and liquids being moved around, juices being excreted. All sorts of lovely gross (and a bit noisy) stuff.
This happens constantly during digestion, but it’s much easier to hear when your stomach is a big empty ball, as it is pre-lunch. The emptier your belly is, and the more cues your body has that food is on the way, the louder it gets.
Do your 2D glasses work on people that only have one eye? My English professor and his wife are big Star Wars fans, but cannot go see the rerelease in 3D because she only has one eye and when I suggested your magic solution, he said he didn't think it would work...
One final time…people with one eye or who are blind in one eye can attend and enjoy 3D movies while wearing regular 3D glasses. Though the movie (like their entire lives) will be in 2D.
So wait, have we debunked the saying "I will travel to the edge of the universe and back for you"? No edge.
No one will ever travel to the edge of the universe and back for anyone. If they were able to move at the speed of light, they could travel to the edge of the universe and back…but the person they did it for would’ve been dead for over 26 billion years when the arrived home.
I am attempting to write a kind of science fiction novel and I wanted to ask YOU rather than Google: Are scientists and astronomers aware of every planet in our galaxy? I'm just trying to make up a planet and I want to make it at least a little bit believable.
Oh lord no. We know of probably 0.0000001% of planets in our galaxy. I don’t know if the decimal is in the right place but, yeah, it’s a tiny fraction.
In general, in our galaxy, or some other galaxy, there is every sort of conceivable planet out there…we probably just won’t ever be able to see them or study them.
So in Level 8-4 of Super Mario Bros., there is fire under water. Is that scientifically possible, or is that just Mario bein' Mario.
Fire is a chemical process called oxidation, and as you might guess, oxidation requires oxygen. The only way to have fire under water is to have a source of oxygen (probably a solidified source) that releases oxygen when heated up, thus allowing something (usually a fuse) to burn.
This is also true in outer space where there is no oxygen (no gas at all) so rockets work by providing oxygen along with the fuel.
I imagine the creators of Super Mario were not thinking about this when they allowed Mario and Luigi to shoot fire balls underwater.
So, I wrote some stuff I really liked at this blog, and now it’s lost in the ether. But the way that Tumblr works, if you reblog something I write, the text that I wrote might get fully transferred to your blog.
I’m mostly talking about fairly long posts, a few paragraphs at the least, where I get all philosophical or preachy ^_^.
If at all possible, it’d be great if we could get together a list of links to stuff I wrote here on other people’s blogs. If you find any, please email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
