Theoretically, the bowling ball falls a bit faster. But immeasurably so. :-)

+Coenraad Loubser the bowling ball is still not falling any faster - which is what you said. The Earth is. The acceleration of the bowling ball is still exactly the same as the feather regardless of the Earth's own independent acceleration.

Klout, Right and Wrong, and "legal physics"
...In the end, the law demands a lot of respect - because it's always on the side of the person that knows it best. Even if that is a bad entity with bad intentions - you being on the "right" side with the "right intentions" counts for nothing. The law isn'...

What a beacon of hope Richard Branson is! Re the post: Not even a living. You're taught how to do things, but not what to do or what to really look for. The most valuable lessons are so simple to teach, yet are nowhere to be found in our curricula. The cool thing is that anybody who can afford to take the time, and who cares about it passionately enough, can share their lessons on the internet. For the older crowd, I think Quora has been at the forefront of this... the sad conundrum: those who can and should teach are too busy trying to make a living themselves... The future makes me excited. We are entering an age of abundance! The present already feels like past, that's how fast we're moving!

So much for South Africa's 80%-coal-fired-power-grid... it's barely even a fart in the storm.

Free Markets, Duplication and Fragmentation...
The free-market dynamics enabled by more open access to information
and the power of free markets to solve problems, is
irrefutable. However, many companies' only competitive edge is purely in the supply and
distribution chain that they have found, and t...

Carrot vs Stick
I have a long list of customers who owed me money for work done, for a long time, but eventually paid. Why? Because I was always courteous, and never threateneing, and never gave them half a chance to demonise me or justify to themselves not paying. Fact of...

On the use and abuse of contracts
I've recently done a lot of work to provide service to a customer, whom, I found out at the last minute, was tied into a 2 year contract with a service provider, for a product wholly inadequate for what he got it for. As a friend so eloquently put it: On th...

Yup, I did a lot of catching up on the year that evening! There's a flying car, too! Just like in Back to the Future when they visit 2015! :-D

Stormcloudsgathering is just frustrated that good teachers are so rare. He's become good at making videos, now he needs to become good at inspiring people, rather than inciting them. The reality is not that things were engineered this way, but that frustrated clowns who thought they knew better, run the show. All the poo poo in the world is the result. People didn't sit around a table and thought: Hmmm... How can we dumb down and enslave humanity. No, what we see are the results of their best intentions and their inability to execute on those. If we spent half the time we spend complaining and waving our arms, instead trying live the examples we strive to teach, before teaching them, we'd be so much better off. There's space for complaining, but that's in the forums addressing the thing at issue, not amongst a bunch of uneducated plebs who will see your whining as an excuse to upend civilisation and repeat the cycle, thinking they know better and ending up pretty much the same. Anyways, we have home schooling, entrepreneurship training, the Internet. The only thing holding us back is our own lack of drive and vision and imagination and dignity and humility. Let's get up and start kicking ass and takking about our most difficult lessons and how to translate them into teachable inspiration!

Introduction
I hate talking. I love doing. But sometimes it seems that people don't talk enough and don't know what to do.

When I think of Cape Town Airport I think of friendly staff, friendly people... and heart-warming hello's and good-byes, like champagne bottles of emotions overflowing... no matter what time of day or night. Just a pity all the shops close at 9pm :'(

How can you go wrong "braaiing" your own food on your own table! Even if the service isn't great, the concept is brilliant - assuming you can reach consensus on how the food should be done :) Great sauces and a selection of Korean drinks.
