Ah, politics. I really hate politics, you know? And the labels confuse me. Are conservatives people who want religion, guns and big government? Or are they small government, pro science gun owners. Are liberals big government, social science hippies? or are they freedom for all, pro personal rights...

I have not understood anything of what he said. A theory of unification would be quite awesome though. 8 dimensions is not that many either, compared to the - how many was that again?- 12?- of String Theory. Besides, what I always disliked about string theory was that it can not be proven or dispro...

Re: A Thermodynamic Explanation Of Politics.

When Tony Blair was Britain's prime minister, he set out to increase the proportion of youth getting higher education to 50%. He was presumably unaware that the overabundance of young people with advanced education preceded the political crises of the age of revolutions in Western Europe, in late T...

We've got a long wait in front of us for news WB8, so it's only natural to discuss other subjects, especially with everything else that happens in the world. If I might suggest, perhaps we could use a humour section just to balance things out a little. That's my thinking as well. In the words of an...

Re: Is it fair for moderators to be promoting politics here?

I am just curious if anyone else has an objection to MSimons constant right wing politics being spouted all over the general forum here. Aren't mods supposed to be neutral and objective? MSimon is anything BUT that. Hijacking threads to promote your political agenda belongs on the myspace news and ...

Re: Thrust from Centripetal forces.

Guys, please don't think poorly of me for this post, its just for fun. After I worked it out I just had to tell someone. It started because I don't understand the Mach Effect or the ME thrusters so I tried to simplify the idea using physics I can understand. I started by thinking of swinging a buck...
