1. ## What makes humans different from all the rest

i think there are two things that separate humans from the rest of the animals. one is the ability to trade an item for something completely different, and the other is to be on friendly terms with an animal before eating it.
2. ## golf payout problem

so my dad was playing with three other people in golf for 9 holes. The bet is each player puts in \$5 dollars. There are 2 games being played. \$3 dollars of the \$5 goes to who has the most points and \$2 of the \$5 goes to the trash pot. At he conclusion of the 9 holes my dad was the only winner of the points pot and Larry was the only winner of the trash pot. The points pot should have \$12 dollars and the trash pot should have \$8. However my dad didn't have correct change nor did Larry so the pot was left with \$10 dollars. Dad took \$6 of the \$10 and Larry took \$4. The next time they
3. ## fast prime test?

i don't really understand why this is a fast test.firstly, you would need a number of terms about equal to the prime value. that means a lot of multiplication second you would need to divide by all those terms, also expensive. i see no improvement to trail divide up to square root algorithm.
4. ## Want to learn basic maths

i can't think of anything more basic than khan academy. never the less here is my vain attempt numbers here i show all numbers between 1 and 9. if i want to add one more, i need one more symbol for the empty case, 0. when you add 1 to 9, the basket on the left, empty, gets a dot, or 1, and the basket with 9 gets to be 0. so 10 is equal to ten ones. so if i want to add two numbers, here's several examples. 17 +14 = so starting on the right, 7 +4 = 11, that is, 1 ten, and 1 one, the 1 ten gets carried over, and i have 1+1+1, = 30 so 3 for the
5. ## planet questions

matter is made up of atoms. i agree, not everything is made up of the same atoms. matter is not motion. yes it's in motion, but it's not motion itself. what does that even mean? nor did you specify why they are different. you don't understand what i'm asking. why do planets have moons? i agree things do tend to go to nothing, or space as you say, but as it does so, it generally doesn't leave behind matter that interacts with each other.
6. ## planet questions

okay that doesn't make sense at all. firstly the planets are of a wide variety of sizes. secondly most have moons. thirdly how would you get solid rock from hydrogen, what the sun is made of? fourthly how would the matter get distant enough to combine into it's own separate object?
7. ## planet questions

can you elaborate on that?

umm how?
9. ## planet questions

i'm not as curious as to where our water came from, i'm really curious as to where our magma core came from. our atmosphere too. rocks can't really carry air.

11. ## Speed of Light (again...)

in my understanding, only atoms have mass. light is made up of quarks, which are mass-less. light bends from a black hole because it is made up of particles. light should be constant even near a black hole. i'm no expert though so take this with a grain of salt.
12. ## The Crank Obsession With Einstein Being Wrong?

that diagram of objects orbiting is interesting, but don't forget it also has to be warped toward the earth not just around it.
13. ## I Just Wrote A Book Challenging Nihilism And The Theory Of Gravity

i don't have kindle but i would like to read your thoughts. can you put it someplace more accessible?
14. ## I Just Wrote A Book Challenging Nihilism And The Theory Of Gravity

I'm not convinced unlimited energy is impossible. for example: you can take an iron bar, and a iron bar magnet, rub the standard bar with the magnet bar, and get a second magnet though i must admit, i have no idea how to achieve it.
15. ## The Crank Obsession With Einstein Being Wrong?

my problem with warped space as gravity is it would have to be warped on every point on earth and in every dimension. what that would even look like, let alone how to allow orbits, i have no idea.
16. ## I Know Why Primes Are Primes

so on the pyramid prime, every prime has to be of the form 6n+1 or 6n+5. that's nothing new, not quite sure what you mean by complex primes. do you mean guass primes? for example 2 is (1+i)*(1-i); 5 is (2+i)*(2-i) again i don't know what you mean by complex primes. sort of, there's a distinct difference between rational numbers and irrational numbers. umm can you clarify that? do you mean Turing machines have state? The fundamental theorem of algebra states that every non-constant single-variable polynomial with complex coefficients has at least one complex root. got by a simple google s
17. ## The Crank Obsession With Einstein Being Wrong?

mm, i can only speak for myself, but i more commonly say warp space doesn't make sense. i focus on Einstein when talking about that because he's the person generally associated with it.
18. ## Dot Division Method

http://thescienceexplorer.com/universe/use-quick-trick-speed-long-division can someone show me what 975 / 15 would look like?
19. ## Faster Than Light?

well for example if i played a trillion notes per second,my fingers would need to move at that speed. there must be some aspect of the camera that's moving at that speed.
20. ## Faster Than Light?

this claims a trillion frames per second. isn't that faster than light?
21. ## New Discovery? Prime Pattern

i don't understand. E = 6 5 11 between 5 and 16 7 13 between 7 and 20 11 17 between 11 and 28 13 19 between 13 and 32 23 29 between 23 and 52 E = 4 3 7 between 3 and 10 7 11 between 7 and 18 13 17 between 13 30 19 23 between 19 42 37 41 E = 2 (between 1 and 4) 3 5 between 3 and 8 5 7 between 5 12 11 13 (only the first number P needs to be in range) 11 24 17 19 between 17 36 29 31
22. ## New Discovery? Prime Pattern

Let E be an even number. between 1 and 2*E there will be a number such that it is prime, and it plus E is prime. lets call this number P. after that, between P and 2*P+E, there will be another number such that it and it plus E is prime. repeat indefinitely. for example, let E = 8. 3,11 the next between 3 and 14 5,13 the next between 5 and 18 11,19 the next between 11 and 30 23,31 the next between 23 and 54 29,37 the next between 29 and 66 for E = 14 3, 17 5, 19 17, 31 23, 37 29, 43
23. ## The Philosophy Of Money

hmm. i think a rich person can have a greater impact, but doesn't necessarily mean for good. as was once said by a comedian, Micheal Jordan is rich. the person who pays Micheal Jordan's salary is wealthy. if i had to choose between wealth and love though, i would choose love.
24. ## Warped Space-Time

i never fully understood the concept of warped space-time. i would like to issue a challenge to the scientific community. show me how warped space time would look like uniformly distributed around the earth, left to right, top to bottom, back to front, before and after. and then explain in layman's terms how you achieve a orbit with this.
25. ## Ai Learning Site

are there any sites that you provide the training data and it puts it through a learning algorithm for you?
