The useless information thread!


Recommended Posts

Do you think that there is some kind of hidden message with the Mario Brothers ??

 

When he eats a red mushroom he gets high or taller if you will...

 

When he eats a green mushroom he can fly...

 

Very odd... Maybe I should try to see if it works in real life...

If you pour boiling water on a frog, it immediately jumps away to avoid getting cooked. If you very slowly heat the water around the frog instead, it doesn't jump away. It just sits there and stares until it dies.

Snopes'ed!

 

Sorry Chief.  :-

I actually saw a video of someone performing this experiment on the internet, but I couldn't find it now. But since I've seen it, I'm sure it'll turn up again. Somewhere.

 

Found it: http://www.big-boys.com/articles/makesyouthink.html

 

Of course, it's an ad (informative, about global warming), but still.. :huh:

That is a perfect example of a supercooled higgsfeild also. It triggered the big bang :-

thats to say if the bowl had a platue in the center and it took the miracluous jump to the platue to store the energy and when it jumped fionally , the accumalative energry would be relased complaicating stuff...

Sorry, troll, but where did I use the term "evidence"? I just explained where I got the useless information from (that's the topic, not useless trolling) and at the end I clearly stated that it was just an ad, which you conveniently missed.

If you put The planet Saturn in a tub of water it would float

Cal me a skeptic, but will you please back it with any info or background please.

 

well Saturn is made of Gas .. so technically it wouldn't float .. but it's density is lower than water so in theory it would float if submerged in water!

exactly how am i trolling, mkreku?

 

note, btw, that i did not resort to calling you names, either. something you carelessly do on a regular basis. so much for your self-righteousness.

 

also, all i did was point out the problem with using such ads as the basis for a line of thought. the ad didn't show anything at all... the fact that you conveniently mentioned it was an ad was irrelevant.

 

critical thinking skills are lacking in the world, and such stray statements (the urban legends) are clearly evidence of that fact. the point is that you saw and ad and thought it was true. that's not useless information, it's flat out wrong. useless does not mean incorrect. that's my bit of useless information.

if it is incorrect, it could have negative implications.  might get folks boiling frogs to find out.  ick.

 

taks

Er.. the french boil frogs all the time.

 

Anyhow, how much of the info found in this thread do you actually think is true? I don't think the point is to educate anyone. I saw the ad, thought it was cool and useless so I posted it.

 

What did you bring to the discussion..?
