There's so much fluid dynamics maths in astrophysics that the universe must be a huge fish tank.

Isn't the universe a waste of space?

It's becoming like that. How long will it take before we see empty Heineken cans on Mars?

"How long will it take before we see empty Heineken cans on Mars?"

space for a lot of bottles there before they need to introduce recycling...

100 bottles = waste. 50,000 bottles = 1 house!


Built around 1905 by Tom Kelly out of 50,000 beer bottles, this house still stands in the now ghost town of Rhyolite in Nevada.:

What's the contour integral around Western Europe?
Answer: Zero, because all the Poles are in Eastern Europe!
Addendum: Actually, there ARE some Poles in Western Europe, but
they are removable!

I think another addendum is called for. It seems to me that Eastern Europe has been replaced by Central Europe. Maybe the Donbas region is still considered Eastern Europe, but that’s about it.

No, that was removed from Europe, along with all the Poles in it.

I thought the Poles left of their own accord, to sunnier climates.
