    Thanks, but no thanks. Their ideas are stale to start with; after a while in your fridge, I expect them to be wholely unpalatable.

    Okay, what are you guys talking about?
    Also, all adults are liars, when i was in middle school they told me it would go easier. Now I'm in Uni and I still dont understand the half of everything they are telling me.

    ...this treat is really really old!

    Yes ^-^ I needed a break from endless hybrid orbitals and applying oxidation numbers.

    Orbitals are not interesting. They are frustrating, when i though i could apply them numbers they came up with crazy hybrids! And the strange thing is, that after a whole week of those things they begin with cristal structures and there are all the orbitals pictured as perfectly round again! Why cant they make up their mind, make them round or make them funky but dont do both!

    No not really, i shall use my google-fu and look them up. I'm only studying the molecular structures since i dont have much time for anything else.
    What are you studying brane wave? (or have studied)

    I find just keeping up with the latest developments in science is very time consuming...not too mention politics.
    Fitting this in with my research is spreading me quite thin..lol..
    Particularly interesting,for me,is the recent Occupy movement..this looks very promising

    Its a non political,non religious biased movement.basically about how the current system,is failing..
    and the need to change it...how the greedy get richer,and the poor are getting poorer...eroding services like healthcare,education,jobs.
    Jobs for the boys,as they say...while they get their jollies,the average person is in poverty...
    there have been protests worldwide in over 1500 cities

    It's easy to point out when things aren't working. Much harder to fix them; protests rarely fix anything.

    Well its not like any government has ever been fail prove and corruption prove. We humans aren't perfect like that. I doubt they can think of an idea that would actually work on big scale in real live for longer then a decade.

    human beings often fail
    it also takes an uncommon human being who is consistently corruption proof

    governments are made up of human beings, despite appearances to the contrary

    hence governments will often fail and will be prone to the temptation of corruption

    Lets say there are folks who can run a big business, well as for the younger history, folks even founded businesses that grew in the tens of thousand of employees.

    There are other folks who like to get drunk all there live long. Well, can someone of you get drunk for days or month or years or even decades? There was a certain talent necessary to get drunk at all.

    And this was what makes a society. Everyone lives as he or she wants to. And yes, for this reason Marx has introduced classes in a society, if he didn't steal that of the table of an other communist, which never would have come up for obvious reasons.

    These classed have been of a kind such that people couldn't get over to an other class. They where fixed to where they where, like never even moving. You understand? One was like the society wanted to be, the other one was an artificial introduction to the society. Both are named classes, but it's still something else.

    Old habits die hard. Like some old fish, e.g. coelacanths. Prince hears that the British House of Lords are frequently drunk as, well, lords, and that they drink like fish in the House of Commons as well. True?

    when it comes to danes, swedes and booze, the following springs to mind : the danish harbour of Helsingor, which is only a short ferry ride away from the swedish harbour of Helsingborg, where swedes arrived by the ferryload with the sole purpose of buying danish booze in large quantities because it's so much cheaper in denmark than in sweden

    Hahahahahaha yeah thats pretty much true. Though a lot of swedes prefer the bridge over the boat. Its easier to take an entire trailer full of booze over the bridge then in the boat. But for some reason danes seem to buy booze on their own soil then go to sweden to window shop and still drunk travel back with that boat the next day :P

    i was there last in 1996, well before the bridge was built
    presumably ferry traffic is not as flourishing as it was then

    Well i wouldnt know about that. I've only used the bridge a few times and once that Stena Line ferry thing from Kiel in germany to Göteborg here. It was fun and very crowded. I live to far up north to just pass the border with Denmark for some cheep beer

    Always more than you would expect, which provides further food for thought.

    Well for 15 dollar (100 sek I think) that it cost to buy a beer in a bar I would expect it to taste better and make my stomach fuller.

    oh for the ignominy of having to look up what ignominy means.

    It means you really didn't want this thread on the second page.

    Clearly us scientists don't do a lot of thinking

    thinking is a bad habit anyway - it clutters up the brain

    I had a friend who had crazy metabolism, so he kept eating and eating without gaining a pound. Working out didn't work either, so what I suggested is for him to build a really fast rocket and travel at c, so he would finally get to control how big he wants to be. Too bad it doesn't work the other way around, otherwise I would build that rocket for myself.
