A God who holds the world record for eating the most skateboards is greater than a God who does not hold that record.

The most plausible argument against this ontological argument is that a god which is so great that mere mortals can't fully comprehend him is certainly greater than the greatest god imaginable, so the god in this argument can't be the supreme being  #mineisbigger .

We all remember those famous first words spoken by an astronaut on the surface of Mars: "That's one small step fo- HOLY SHIT LOOK OUT IT'S GOT SOME KIND OF DRILL! Get back to the ... [unintelligible] ... [signal lost]"

Since it sounds like your time spent typing can't possibly be less productive than your time spent not typing, have you tried typing SLOWER?

Due to their proximity across the channel, there's long been tension between North Korea and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Southern Ireland.

While this map is certainly neat, I was fairly puzzled by the why of the exercise.

Checking Explain xkcd, they lead their piece in with the statement "People often say that maps with the south pole at the top will change your perspective of the world."

I've never heard or read this anywhere, is this an(other) American culture thing?

i didn't like the long earth very much. i prefer his older ones, particularily pyramids and small gods . they amaze me every time i reread them :  philosophical insight, historical allusions and wit. but even with his lesser books pratchett outshines most other authors.

It's my most ambitious project yet, judging by the amount of guacamole.

Hotter than Average

I saw a sign at a hot springs tub saying "Caution: Water is hotter than average" with water at about 39°C. Although they were presumably trying to say "hotter than the average swimming pool," this got me wondering: What is the average temperature of all water on the Earth’s surface, and how does that temperature compare to 39°C?

For once, he didn't answer the question. I need to know.

I've often joked I'd like to have my remains put into orbit. Not in a "scatter my ashes" sense, but, like, "throw my naked corpse out the airlock" sense. Honestly, my main motivation is to baffle someone in the distant future, but it's an interesting scientific question: what would happen to my body in orbit over the course of years, decades or centuries?

So, you're falling from a height above the tallest building in your town, and you don't have a parachute. But wait! Partway down the side of that skyscraper there's a flagpole sticking out, sans flag! You angle your descent and grab the pole just long enough to swing around so that when you let go you're now heading back up toward the sky. As gravity slows you and brings you to a halt, you reach the top of the skyscraper, where you reach out and pull yourself to safety. What's the likelihood this could happen?

Well, the question becomes, what height is it possible to hold on, and then, saying you can, will the rest of the trick work? I know you won't go back up to the top, but maybe you could grab a window a floor down from the top or something.

If you ever hear "Wait, is that Kim Dotcom's new project? I'm really excited about it and already signed up, although I'm a little nervous about whether everyone should hand over control of their medical...", it's time to dig a bunker in your backyard.
