So i heard you like facts, so.... .. Last year scientists proved that starts are so hot if you touched one you would need like a bandaid or something for the burn.

I always thought whales were the closest living relatives to whales.

there's no way this isn't legit

How could you prove it?

well if space smells like seared steak, hot metal and welding fumes, that isn't that far fechted.

Why would people just go on the internet and lie?

Actually, it's true. Ethyl formate has been confirmed to present in the centre of our galaxy. This is the chemical that is responsible for the taste of raspberries and the smell of rum.

I still don't understand how we can find that out, but still have troubles finding water on Mars.

Ever heard of the smelloscope?
#216 to #50 - anon (07/02/2013) [-]
Well, technically we have found water on mars, in the form of ice, and small amounts of water vapor in the atmosphere.

How can you confirm this? For me the entire meaning of the word confirm means that somebody's been up there and smelled and tasted it. For example, the astronauts who smelled space confirmed that it smelled like steak and 			****		.

That's silly. If you see a big pile of poo across the room you can reliably guess that the poo will be smelly without going and sticking your face in it. Likewise if there are molecules of poo in the center of the universe identical to our own we can assume that they will also posses pooey qualities.

Assume but not confirm??
User avatar #124 to #89 - predatorwolf (07/02/2013) [-]
It's something to do with the light spectrum. Every type of atom absorbs a certain amount of light. If they look at the centre of the galaxy and note which wavelengths of light are missing and in what amounts they can figure out the content and amount of the atoms of the thing they're looking at; and work out the molecules present.

Or something like that...

I have been lead to believe at the center of our galaxy is a massive black hole. Would it be the area AROUND the black hole that tastes like raspberries and smells like rum?

No way this isn't legit is a double negative...

I like how many people on the "I ******* love Science"'s facebook page pointed out that this picture must have been fake, because it was clearly photoshopped/edited, no this is an real picture of the shark taken 270 million years ago.

That's not completely true. Yes, you would need a bandage, but your mother would have to blow on it too, not once, not twice, but at least three times. That it scary.

I'm Carl Sagan. Just how old is our planet?
Scientists believe it's 4.. hundreds and hundreds of years old.
Scientists have determined that the universe was created by a GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD! -big bang.
If you look at the bones of a Jesus -osaurus rex, it's clear by the use of carbon dating that- Mountain Dew is the best soda ever made.

These are pretty amazing, but i have a little doubt about the raspberry & rum one.  Farnsworth hasn't invented the smell-a-scope yet.

Yeah, they can only estimate what it smells like by knowing what is made of, and reproducing that here, they don't know for sure... it's all chemicals.

I wanna know who the **** tasted the center of our galaxy.
User avatar #168 to #156 - dafiltafish (07/02/2013) [-]
big-ass telescopes, that is all the information you need.

'I have no idea about the science involved to get to this answer, THEREFORE IT'S ******** !'
...Not to say that the center of the universe does or does not taste like raspberries, but we didn't have to witness evolution to have proof of it's existence.

How would anyone be able to prove this?
User avatar #104 to #103 - amegaara (07/02/2013) [-]
chemists...
User avatar #125 to #104 - lolzordz ONLINE (07/02/2013) [-]
chemists who cant possibly imagine and then take into account probably half the factors which affect our sense of smell in the centre of the galaxy...
User avatar #263 to #125 - niggastolemyname (07/06/2013) [-]
If you were to bottle it, compress it into something at 1 atm the do a taste and smell test.
but that fact isn't sourced anyway so it's not like they have the spectroscopy images to prove it.

It's like saying "Well, if your mom is a whore..." It's not introducing the possibility, it's reminding you of a fact and making it relevant to the current context.

No idea what's wrong with me lately. I'm usually filled with jolly thoughts and kind comments, but the past few days I've been on edge. The little things that I didn't give two ***** about now royally piss me off, and I haven't the slightest why.

Olynpus mons is the largest mountain in solar system, yet mars smaller than earth, and the mountain is isolated, i.e. not in a mountain range....

Let me rephrase:

Those are actually All galaxies.

That means that everything you see in there are galaxies, not that those are all the galaxies that exists.

I thought that was PRETT obvious

only the core not the whole galaxy, if the whole galaxy was visible than it would apear six times larger than the moon.

"Space smells like..."
"The center of a galaxy smells like..."
How would you know that?
Not only would it be absolutely devoid of particles that could be sensed as smell...you would die.
I don't understand.

I don't mean to brag either, but when I fap, the blood that rushes to my cock contains iron made billions of years ago, trillions of miles away.

And cock is made of 90% stardust.

Thatis either an amazing coincidence, or just plain brilliance by the origional makers of that trope.

Is there a HD release of that game?
#182 to #173 - deadpeople (07/02/2013) [-]
"Conker Live and Reloaded" or something. I think it's an Xbox exclusive but we can probably use an emulator.


I prefer the original though
User avatar #184 to #182 - Nightinear **User deleted account** (07/02/2013) [-]
It just isn't the best game to emulate
It makes some hacks here and there
#187 to #184 - deadpeople (07/02/2013) [-]
Eh I still have it for 64, and I have an original Xbox (or I mean my brother does) so if I found the game for Xbox I could probably play it.
