1) we have a large number of people and organisations giving to charity
2) because a king and queen cannot lay claim to 50% of your income in a year, unannounced
3) because you cannot be hanged for disagreeing with the Genesis account
4) Because your daughter will not be hanged for having a mole on or near er chest
5) because you (hopefully) see a black man as your equal, not as your slave
How about those for a start?
That's definitely progress.

Did you say something about drug dealers, That wasn't what I asked, but it clearly answers my question..
I bet you say that about all the drug dealers.. Every time you brown bag that 12 pack..
Exactly right. They have as much right to life as any other creature.

Even tho we gave them a nasty scientific name: Ursus arctos horribilis.

Did he make that argument? LOL. Yeah Bill, whatever. But that isn't half as good as Gingrich pursuing Clinton for having an affair while having one of his own AND serving his wife with divorce papers while she was in the hospital recovering from cancer surgery. And now he has converted to Catholicism, after getting divorced twice. And still presumes to blovate about morality. You can't make this stuff up.

There's a hint in my profile, duh. I like to hike and I hate anything that might eat me when it's not even fkg hungry. Bears are nasty beasts.
Maybe the bear would have a lot more taste.

<quoted text> I agree with you totally. One must respect the boundaries of the animals. To me, seeing wild life In their native habitat like that, is what makes the hike or camping trip more enjoyable. Respecting the animal for what it is and keeping distance between you and the animal can be the difference of an enjoyable hike, or a trip to the ER. I do not believe in the unnecessary killing of any animal. I was raised in the mountains and don't even hunt. I find more pleasure in firing up a good joint and watching them, than I do blowing their brains out for some stir fry!
It's always better to shoot animals with a camera, anyway.

Well, he takes some liberties. For one thing, it's obviously impossible for one guy and his sons to build an ark that big, so in this version they are assisted by giants. Which, interestingly, were mentioned earlier in Genesis (but not in relations to the flood story). There is also a stow-away. There are also giant six-armed angels. And the problem of animals eating and defecating on the boat is solved by having all the animals immediately go to sleep upon settling down in the ark (which is a pretty good solution if you can figure out how to do that).
I'm just interested in the drama of it. Same as any other Hollywood offering, really.

The Ten Commandments was also a good drama, and I read the Bible story again the last time it was on TV. But it won't make me into a true believer, again.

Oh yeah Lolong is a legend. Died last year on my birthday. Largest croc ever measured, or ever in captivity. Something like that. All I know is that I was disappointed because as far as I know, they neer got around to measuring the bite force of Lolong, that would have been an easy 2 ton bite. At least.
Saltwater crocs are mean players. In a straight fight, they would even hold their own against a Great White. They are the heaviest reptillians on earth, capable of breaking the 1 ton mark. Komodo Dragons got nuttin' on them crocs
When the Salties aka Estuarine Crocodiles go out to sea, they often get into fights with sharks. They usually win too.

You see, these online calculators not only give you the answer but a detailed description of how you get the answer..aka "the work ;) The fact that he got the answer WRONG only proves he forgot simple things like converting mmHg to atm… Naturally the work is there… The computer GAVE it to him step by step :)
You really being a byotch about this.

It really isn't that hard a problem. PV=nRT. Simple algebra, solve for T. A few conversions thrown in to get the units to line up right.

BTW...he DID convert mmHg (aka torr) to atm. If he hadn't, his answer would have been 760 times larger than what he got. Perhaps you should check your own math. It doesn't seem to be very good.

My suspicion is that your book's calculation used 3 significant digits for its values, while IANS used 4 significant digits (which he did). That would account for the small discrepancy.

And what precision did you use for your values? 3 significant digits. I know IANS used 4. If that is the case, his answer will be closer to the actual value than yours. His arithmetic is correct. I checked it.

If you used 3, which is a common practice, 185 would be a "correct" answer, but not an exact answer.

But I reiterate...IANS math is correct.

Bluenose is a n Ausie that posts on Topix at times, particularly on the evolution threads. In his younger days, he was a carrier pilot in the Ausie navy. He claims to have flown over a salty swimming in the middle of the Coral Sea.

No, the crocodilians are not dinosaurs. They are only distantly related to them as reptiles. IIRC, crocodiles first appeared about the same time as the dinosaurs did, about 250 million years ago. I'm too danged tire right now to look it up.

I have also heard Komodo dragons referred to as "living dinosaurs" or "descendants of dinosaurs". Also false.

The only descendants of dinosaurs we know of are birds.
