Please don't think I'm a troll here, this is a serious question. Is a zombie apocalypse as described by Max Brooks possible? I've been thinking, and seeing how humans have not only created their own viruses but caused mutations in others, isn't it possible for, say, influenza to mutate into something similar to "solanum"? Just wondering.
User avatar #1408 to #1404 - beatmasterz (04/16/2014) [-]
Despite zombies being able to exist a zombie APOCALYPSE is pretty much never going to happen.
User avatar #1407 to #1404 - nought (04/16/2014) [-]
IMO the human mind is so complex that no disease could actively control it, only give you mental illness or weaken you
User avatar #1406 to #1404 - sugoi (04/15/2014) [-]
While it is doubtful for the zombies we know and may or may not love either mutual or sexual, hey buddy I won't judge you necrophiliacs. , I think the most likely "zombies" to exist would be those from the movie "I am legend". A mad cow disease evolving to affect humans in a more aggressive manner than CJD would be similar to zombies, they'd be extremely aggressive and you gotta shoot em in the brains since CJD and Mad Cow are caused by prions, a pathogen that likes to live in the brain. Rabies is also an option but yeah.

would it be possible for a planet to have multiple rings? Not necessarily perpendicular or even parallel to one another, but just simply have 2 or more rings around it?
#1551 to #1400 - xtwinblade (05/03/2014) [-]
if the planet is spinning on multiple axises yes. But like saturn and uranus spinning on one axis while going around another, the ring will do to gravitational inertia, be spinning on a 90 degree point of that axis.

imagine if you have a rock tied to a string, you are holding that string and starts spinning around. when given enough force to it exeeding the force of gravity given by earth, the rock will spin completely horizontal from you.

Hola hoops is also a good example. have you ever seen someone able to hola hoop with a tilted Hoop?

tl;dr on multiple axises yes, but on a single axis no.
User avatar #1560 to #1551 - ribocoon (05/03/2014) [-]
This is a good explanation and example
Thanks a lot
User avatar #1429 to #1400 - goobyman (04/22/2014) [-]
saturn and uranus both have more than one ring... they have thousands. but i think they can only go around the axle that the planet is spinning as well.
#1435 to #1429 - ribocoon (04/22/2014) [-]
What I mean is something like this
Would the gravity between the rings cause them to collapse into one another?
#1450 to #1435 - emeraldjewel (04/24/2014) [-]
I dont know much about physics gravity and all that but i do know the night sky the stars that i can see as bright as ever and as far out in every direction i can see i look at planets through my telescope and i hope nothing is wrong with this planets rings collapsing changing or anything cause its my favorite one of all and my happy place in my mind when things are bad and those rings are where i hang iceakating around them and no im not psycho just beautifuly crazy

User avatar #1436 to #1435 - goobyman (04/22/2014) [-]
good question, i'd think so.... the problem would not be them colliding, but rather them gravitating towards one another...
User avatar #1437 to #1436 - ribocoon (04/22/2014) [-]
but the idea is displayed in science fiction regularly
maybe it's just that: science fiction
User avatar #1438 to #1437 - goobyman (04/22/2014) [-]
yeah i think so, no truth there. well it might exist, but in a different way: binary planets. imagine, two planets circling each other- there can't be life on it, of course, but the could both have a ring or rings!
User avatar #1405 to #1400 - nought (04/15/2014) [-]
I don't have much physics knowledge, but I believe the rings only go the direction the planet is rotating because of gravity. As in uranus' faint sideways rings
User avatar #1401 to #1400 - xsnowshark (04/15/2014) [-]
Yep, would probably be possible
User avatar #1402 to #1401 - ribocoon (04/15/2014) [-]
Did you check to see if the physics was on?
User avatar #1403 to #1402 - xsnowshark (04/15/2014) [-]

It would be possible if the rings were orbiting the planet at different altitudes. I don't know exactly how the rings form, but if the stuff that made up the rings obeyed the dynamic requirements of their orbit, then it should work.

why cant i see the difference between italians and jews? why do they look the same?

and if hitler hated jews so much then why did he cooperate with people who practically loks the same??

these are my biggest question and it is your duty to give me answers, sciense guys
#1397 to #1396 - Womens Study Major (04/14/2014) [-]

Does any of you scifags know medical shit? I wanna know if Rapex is completely fucking stupid or not.
User avatar #1392 to #1376 - adak ONLINE (04/14/2014) [-]
It's main purpose is to give the victim a chance to escape while the rapist is distracted by the device. I'd say that as long as the victim is able to run at all it should work. Most guys would probably get a bit distracted if it felt like a small shark bit them on their junk and wouldn't let go. The big problem is that you have to get pretty far into a rapescenario before this would help at all. Mace or a tazer would probably be a better idea. I'm a bit unsure about what you mean when you ask if the rapist would "get stuck" though?
User avatar #1389 to #1376 - kanadetenshi (04/14/2014) [-]
From a medical perspective it works. But like Mortuus said it could only lead to worse consequences such as the rapist beating her out of anger.
User avatar #1377 to #1376 - Mortuus (04/14/2014) [-]
The condom-like mutilation device? If you think you dress provocatively or wander through bad areas enough to be the victim of rape, maybe... It's honestly for people living in places with large amounts of reported rape.
User avatar #1378 to #1377 - logickid (04/14/2014) [-]
Yes, but would it work? I mean, would the rapist get stuck? Would he die? Would he be able to beat the shit out of the woman for mutilating his penis?
User avatar #1379 to #1378 - Mortuus (04/14/2014) [-]
If he was not stunned by the initial sensation, then yes. He'd be likely to "beat the shit out of the woman". If he sued the woman, he'd likely win reparations for the damage done, as well.

It's a pretty bad idea. Learn to safely use a firearm and purchase one for self-defense, if you're that paranoid about it.
User avatar #1381 to #1379 - logickid (04/14/2014) [-]
I was told if you moved around, it would make it worse and that the man could pass out or even bleed out dying from the blood loss.
User avatar #1382 to #1381 - Mortuus (04/14/2014) [-]
It acts more like shark teeth, if I'm not mistaken. Goes in fine, but pulling it out is ... problematic. Passing out from the blood loss would take longer than it would to severely injure the assailant's victim. As for passing out due to pain, it's possible, but adrenaline plays a major part. He'd likely remain conscious, for at least a minute or two.
User avatar #1383 to #1382 - logickid (04/14/2014) [-]
It's confirmed.
User avatar #1384 to #1383 - Mortuus (04/14/2014) [-]
This is assuming the assailant doesn't have some form of weapon, which could easily be used in such a situation. Can't really see a positive from this, other than fucking his junk up.

Why are you so very interested in the device, anyway?

You guys ever think about how helpful it would be for us to discover an advanced extraterrestrial civilization? (Assuming they're peaceful.) Religions would be weeded out, our technology and science knowledge would be FUCKTOUPLED, and we would have such a better understanding of so much. I just wish this could happen in our lifetimes.
User avatar #1552 to #1355 - xtwinblade (05/03/2014) [-]
the chance of finding an extraterrestrial civilization more advanced than us, is less likely than even finding an extraterrestrial civilization in the first place.

besides that, we have proven so much against religion, that they would still believe in ancient books.
#1417 to #1355 - theasguard (04/18/2014) [-]
Doubtful, it's more likely that humans would in some way shape or form start a war with said alien species. I don't think there is a single government on this earth that would knowingly work with an extraterrestrial species. I say this because humans naturally fear what they don't understand (its been proven millions of times throughout history), and most leaders would fear that the aliens would try and take some of their power. This would lead to some sort of sanctions on the aliens and could provoke hostility from either the aliens, or a different government.

And depending on what type of alien race this was could change many things too, such as humans dislike gross or weird things; I know it sounds stupid, but if nasty looking aliens came down (or even just scary looking ones) most people would not want them around. On top of that you have the religions of earth that would have different points of views and at least one of them would probably try and eradicate evidence of the aliens.

I think it would be awesome to see an alien species, but in all honesty I don't think humans could ever as a whole get along with another species, hell we can't even get along with each other, and we treat all other species on this planet as lesser beings.

These are just my thoughts of course, because who knows how people would react to another species (and if they are more powerful/more advanced; who knows how that would go).
#1398 to #1355 - Womens Study Major (04/14/2014) [-]
I think religion would find a way to survive
The fact is, it's gone through too many other debunking discoveries such as heliocentrism and it's still chugging along strongly today
#1374 to #1355 - qill (04/13/2014) [-]
Well, there are a lot of assumptions in that: If you look at life on Earth, very few species make civilizations: In fact, we're the only one, and I suppose we have to use the only data we can use, so it's probably true that most alien species don't make civilizations either: Combining that with the fact that life is supposedly quite rare, I think it's safe to say that finding another alien civilization at the moment seems highly improbable: On top of that, why would they be more advanced? They could be, but they might not be, or they might be more advanced in specific fields, but not others. But fret not, because physicists think there are actually 11 dimensions, thus it may be possible that something 100,000,000 light years away in our known 3 dimensions is much closer in one of the remaining 8.
User avatar #1375 to #1374 - leightonsolomon (04/13/2014) [-]
Well, no. Social species form civilization. It's the social interaction that evolves their intelligence. And considering there are innumerable planets habitable of life, it's safe to say there are many like us. And I'm assuming they're advanced because I'm assuming they're going to find us, because I doubt we will find them soon. And there are 10 dimensions.
#1388 to #1375 - qill (04/14/2014) [-]
Thank you for the new information

Apologies for my lack of understanding, I'm not really an expert in the field, just an enthusiast with no real scientific understanding
User avatar #1364 to #1355 - Mortuus (04/12/2014) [-]
No, absolutely not. We'd find new ways to blow ourselves up.

If I was said extraterrestrial life, I'd only grant advancements in, assuming they has knowledge of it, advanced sub-light engines, so we could mine other planets for resources, thereby allowing Earth to be less fucked in that regard.

If FTL is possible, that would be helpful.
User avatar #1367 to #1364 - leightonsolomon (04/12/2014) [-]
Actually I feel the opposite way. I feel like the earth would become more united and focused on extraterrestrial enemies. Even if the ones we met were peaceful, we would know there would probably be others that are hostile.
#1399 to #1367 - Womens Study Major (04/14/2014) [-]
I agree with the idea that humanity would become more unified
Look at how racism existed before globalization. It was strictly based on country rather than ethnicity. But once the world opened up, our similarities were highlighted by the differences of others. The same would be true if we were to contact alien life.
User avatar #1369 to #1367 - Mortuus (04/12/2014) [-]
I feel like there would be massive power struggles. Wouldn't be fun.

I'd agree that there would eventually be a united earth government, but it would be a long while.

whats the science behind attraction to teens? Is it normal for someone older to find teens physically attractive?
User avatar #1365 to #1337 - Mortuus (04/12/2014) [-]
Yes, biologically speaking, you will seek those with characteristics indicative of fertility. Ie: Large breasts and wide hips.
User avatar #1338 to #1337 - kanadetenshi (04/10/2014) [-]
Teens usually become fertile at that age, so it makes sense. Although from an evolutionary perspective waiting till they're matured is better since they have better child bearing hips and bigger boobs.

So...Since I've been playing Halo lately, there's something I've always been curious about...How does the day and night thing work on halo? Because In attack on the control room, it's day light, yet in two betrayals, when you go through the same path you took in Assault on the control room, it's night time, I was under the impression that the day's were fixed...
User avatar #1366 to #1318 - Mortuus (04/12/2014) [-]
The rings do not orbit objects, due to the fact that they are locked in a specific area -- doesn't make sense, because the rings would be left behind as the object around it would leave it far behind.

If I had to guess, it would be the fact that one half of the ring is always dark, due to the orientation. You'll notice that none of Installation 00 was dark, due to it being completely open. Same applies here.

Next time, post it on the games board.

I know that this is 'pseudo-science', or rather.. I'd like a new word for it, maybe just .. ignorance? Does anyone here know anything about humorism? Basically, I guess you could say it's a bit like a medicine-psychology mix from what I've gathered. It was commonly believed by the Romans and the Greek's that different kinds of bile and other bodily fluids that controlled our moods. For example, when you had too much 'yellow bile', you would get 'angry' and uncontrolled, very emotional. Black bile is basically depression, from what I can gather... Phlegm.. hard to describe, maybe.. lol, I'm just stabbing in the dark here, but.. some form of sociopathy? Yeah..
tl;dr wondering about a now discretied science called "humorism" about our moods
