Re: Stupid question of the day

Nonsense. It's obviously relativistic mechanics. In your frame of reference, you can see that light travels a shorter way to the front lamp than to the tail lamp, because the cat is moving forward with velocity v. However in the reference frame of the car, the car doesn't move, and hence light trave...

Open-source algorithm, promise to defeat the bots (if they do this, they will solve a much bigger problem - that of spam, DDoS attacks and all sorts of botnet campaigns threatening cybersecurity) - I'm very positive about this takeover. I'm actively moderating my Twitter content anyway.

Re: What is Borisism?

Both he and his wife, unless it was some punishment... No, seriously, the shoes he's wearing to the suit reveal the level of threat. I vow to never make fun of his hair again - it's probably shielding him against the electromagnetic pulse attack. That Ukrainian guy must have felt like in a dream, or...

I sense a manipulation.

Re: A Music Game II for 2009

I don't really wallow in social media flames, unless it's Gamal :-) People I know personally shocked me with radical political opinions, callousness - and defensive reactions on the few occasions I dared to mention the war first.

Re: A Music Game II for 2009

Actually a song warning us that the fear of terrorists like poo-tin can taking control over our lives and destroy them just like the bombs ;-) BTW, Floyds stopped streaming their albums in Russia, but only those post-1987, without Waters. He was against it, claiming that the Russian fans are just in...

Re: Russia земля борца самбо

Well, Catherine the Great was German, and they cross bred quite a lot producing those monsters... The relationship had ups and downs, but what can't be forgiven at Lavrov's wild parties or Gazprom board of directors.

https://twitter.com/EerikNKross/status/1511034441799450625?s=20&t=FJgICm9HF78fSMyshSK4NA I also heard stories about Germans being unreasonably obstructive or even hostile towards volunteers helping Ukraine... No normal life when one is geographically trapped between two "higher" races ...
