1. ## Two hydrogen atoms walk into a bar...

Two hydrogen atoms walk into a bar. One says, "I've lost my electron." The other says, "Are you sure?" The first replies, "Yes, I'm positive..." :shrug:

2. ## The Six Dice Puzzle

Ron and JQ are correct. If one of them is a six, then each one has an equal probability of being the six. If you go through the exercise of using *not* logic, then you can initially determine that the probability increases from A to F like so... A = 83.333% not 6, 16.666% is 6 B = 80% not 6, 20% is 6 C = 75% not 6, 25% is 6 D = 66.666% not 6, 33.333% is 6 E = 50% not 6, 50% is 6 F = 0% not 6, 100% is 6 of course those odds are only forward looking, and don't account for the chances that have already passed. Properly calculated you get this... A = 16.666% is 6 B = 83.333% x 20% = 16.66

We've seen a mere handful, and they seem to be somewhat esoteric and punitive. I would hope you would have more to show for this five years and nine months than what you've printed so far here. It would be nice of course if you would expose some of this list in responding to the objections that point out the inadequacy of your plan rather than making vague allusions to how you either "have it all figured out" or that "there are smart people who can come up with that solution"... And this is the biggest fundamental weakness in your "solution:" you have framed the entire scenario around your wor

5. ## Are people with high IQs sociopaths by definition?

The answer is "no". 1) You have not defined "normal" behavior. If "normal" means semi-literate and unable to deal with simple math, then HALF of Americans are sociopaths. 2) You are confusing "behavior" with "intellegence". You start by appealing to normal behavior, then attempt to equate that with normal intelligence. Bad logic. 3) You begin with one definition of "sociopath" as defined by your statement #1, but conclude by undeclared inference that high IQ folks are "sociopaths" by a second definition--namely, the common definition that most folks have for serial killers and compuls

6. ## Exciting New Kenyan Fossils

Two new fossils, described this week in the journal Nature, cast fresh light on a little understood and important period of human prehistory at the dawn of our own genus, Homo. lefthttp://hypography.com/gallery/files/9/9/8/lucy.gif[/img]The new fossils were discovered by the Koobi Fora Research Project, an international group of scientists directed by mother-daughter team Meave and Louise Leakey, and affiliated with the National Museums of Kenya (NMK). Human evolution over the last two million years is often portrayed as a linear succession of three species: Homo habilis to Homo erectus to
