Apparently this holds true for Airheads as well.
My brother and I always argued over what flavor they were. I guess we were both wrong.
EDIT: After doing some googling I happened across this band site. Apparently they named themselves after the flavor.
EDIT 2: Heck my deck! Thanks for the karma reddit! :)
They don't need food for a long time. Not sure how accurate this article is...
>Most species can live for at least a month without food, but there are some that can live for over a year without either food or water. For example, a spider known as a Steatoda bipunctata lived for 18 months without either water or food. Camel spiders can live for up to a month without food. The poisonous brown recluse spiders have lived for up to 6 months without food, water, or AIR; add air to the mix, and the brown recluse can survive for up to 10 months.
So yeah, they can overstay their welcome by quite a bit.
$0.00. Because the government basically never uses new tax revenue to offset tax liabilities from individuals. They just collect more money.
But what I think you're asking is how much per person the NFL would pay in tax. The non-profit arm of the NFL, which is separate from NFL Properties and NFL Ventures, " raked in more than $326 million from April 2012 to March 2013, almost of all of which came from "membership dues and assessments". ([link])
Even getting taxed at the maximum corporate tax rate, 40%, that would be $130,400,000. There are about 240 million adults in the US paying some kind of tax, so that's about $0.54 per taxpayer.
If you're only looking at income tax, about 120 million Americans pay income tax, so that would be $1.08 per person paying income tax. ([link])
A playing card is 8.9 cm wide. The the length of an arm is 25" or 63.5 cm. The perimeter of the arm is 2*pi*63.5 cm = 399 cm. The ratio of the playing card and the perimeter is 0.0223, or multiplied by 360 gives a FOV of 8 degrees.
I doubt the field of view is 8 degrees~~, versus the reported 120 degrees~~.
edit: It's not 120 degrees, however 8 degrees just has to be wrong or the device is utter nonsense. Oculus rift has a FOV of 100-110.
I've heard dreams (nightmares specifically) are your brain training you to survive. Your brain subconsciously will train your mind to survive via dreaming, including nightmares, which in this context can be viewed as 'worse case scenario' training. After having a nightmare, your brain files it away in to its big brainy memory bank for later usage.
Later on in life, you may be faced with a situation similar to being chased down an alley by a creepy clown with a machete. Your brain has subconsciously given you the tools to survive the encounter, because you dreamt about this umpeenth years ago, and survived (in your dream).
When people explain 'I saw my life flash before my eyes' in near death experiences? It's your brain working on overdrive, filtering through every dream and memory and sensation you've ever had, searching for something similar to what you're experiencing to help you survive an adverse encounter.
So to answer, while it may not immediately feel as such, there are some very beneficial reasons to having nightmares.
Edit: It appears many of you are interested in sources of this theory. For those of you too lazy to do their own Googling, here you go. Here's a handful of articles pertaining to Dream Survival Theory.
Keep in mind this is a scientific theory, delving in to one particular reason for dreaming. Some of you have cited Freud's study and theories for dreaming. One doesn't necessarily outweigh the other, it's just a theory.
very. theres no official census or research about it, but most estimates are low. this guy's stats site calculates about 28 in the US. this site has no sources but estimates 2800 in the world.
Heres the quote from the original SI article about how they got the denominator of 7 foot people though (using statistical extrapolation):
>An actual accounting of 7-footers, domestic or global, does not exist in any reliable form. National surveys by the Center for Disease Control list no head count or percentile at that height. (Only 5% of adult American males are 6’3″ or taller.)…
The curve shaped by the CDC’s available statistics, however, does allow one to estimate the number of American men between the ages of 20 and 40 who are 7 feet or taller: fewer than 70 in all. Which indicates, by further extrapolation, that while the probability of, say, an American between 6’6″ and 6’8″ being an NBA player today stands at a mere 0.07%, it’s a staggering 17% for someone 7 feet or taller.
You could get your daily required dose of zinc by consuming about 100 ml of semen per day.
The average volume of semen per ejaculation is about 3.2 ml, which means that you would have to consume the product of about 32 ejaculations in order to satisfy your daily zinc requirement.
This is, of course, assuming that none of your donors engage in significant ejaculatory action outside from providing you with your zinc supplement, as doing so will decrease the quantity and nutritional value they provide.
Imma say that this is false :
> Bees do not urinate because they have to hold onto as much water in their bodies as possible. Instead, they release liquid waste in the form of uric acid.
> Uric acid contains very little water, so it is safe for the bee to get rid of. Insects such as bees produce waste in an organ called Malpighian tubules, which are the insect version of kidneys. Ammonia and uric acid travel to the insect's gut where it is mixed with other waste products before being expelled from the body.
> The amount of uric acid a bee expels is very small, so it is usually hard to see. The uric acid from a bee is white and looks like a bird feces.
Most all other sources agree that uric acid (and sometimes pollen grains) are the only waste products of bees and that the acid is white and contains little liquid.
EDIT: maybe I'm wrong, though id on;t think this is "urinating" seems there is something to it though.
Looks like CPS workers make usually over $30k/year.
Median home price in Michigan is around $120k.

A typical crayon weighs 0.002 pounds [link]
Office Depot is selling them $1.99 for a box of 12 [link]
11 pounds * ( 1 crayon / 0.002 pounds ) * ($1.99 / 12 crayons) = $912.08
You probably can find a better deal on crayons. But how much better?
Presumably the OP has gone through a bunch of crayons. Thus they don't get included in the 11 pound total, but the OP has paid for them.
Using this statistic that the average foot-to-bottom-of-neck height for a saddle horse is 5 feet to 5'8", it seems that each individual harpy column is something along the lines of a hundred feet or more, as I measured them to be about 20 times higher.
EDIT: Just to clarify, the horse and rider in this picture are riding past the statues and are just exiting the tunnel of the gate, not just exiting the gate doors behind.
If it's all in 20s, that would be 250,000 bills. Using Violet Straps would give you 2500 bundles. At 1g per bill, this would be 250 kg or about 550 pounds.
Bills are 2.61x6.14x.0043, so 250k bills is about 17,227 cubic inches, or 10 cubic feet. Each bill is about .0043 inches thick, so all together they are 1075 inches thick, or about 90 feet.
If you laid them out in a square about 2 feet by 2 feet (9 bills one way, 4 the other), the stack would be about 7,000 bills tall, or 2.5 feet.
This is the closest thing I could come up with: "No one person invented percentages. The concept developed throughout history. In Ancient Rome mathematical computation were expressed in fractions of 100. This concept later evolved into percentages." - [link]

I am saying that an average person is jogging at around 10 kmh, which would be a 6 minute kilometer. You are stipulating that the fittest people on your team (who are apparently "really fucking fit") can't even run a 5 minute kilometer, so they are barely able to run as fast as an average person jogs. Your words, not mine...
Good god mate, learn to read before insulting other people.
BTW: Fit people should be able to run 15 mph (or +/- 24 kmh) for short periods of time ([link]), which would amount to a 2.5 minute kilometer, so what does that say about the fitness of your team??
I have heard anecdotes that going below a quarter can cause increased wear and tear on your fuel pump. Various things from ingesting crud on the bottom of your tank to reducing cooling capacity. (Also, the mindfuck that something uses fuel as coolant.)

In the US, every taxpaying person pays about $3000/year to support these women. So over your lifetime, you'll pay about $130,000 to support single mothers.
Source: the table at the bottom shows, highlighted, the amounts we spend on poor children, the bulk of whom are from single mother households. About $394 Billion per year.
122 million taxpayers in the US:
You pay the same as if you had one child and the mom was awarded $600 per month in child support for 18 years.
I hate to break it to you (unless this was your intention), but the Biohazard tattoo was adopted by the gay community to identify people who are HIV+
uhhh... well, the average jogging speed for an average runner is around 6 miles per hour, or +/- 10 kmh, which would be a 6 minute kilometer... jogging... ([link]).
Are you maybe playing wheelchair soccer? In that case a 5 minute kilometer would be more then impressive :-)
> Say this particular penny has a resistance of 1 ohm.
Your premise is ridiculous. A penny likely has a resistance of 1x10^-6 ohms, at best.
EDIT: I did the math. R = r * (L/A), where 'r' is the resistivity, L is the length, and A is the cross sectional area. The resistivity of copper is 1.68*10^-8, the width of a penny is 19.05mm, and the thickness is 1.55mm. I'll just simplify it by saying the area is equal to the width of a penny * the thickness (the average area is much less than this). The resulting resistance is 1.08x10^-5 Ω.
I am pretty sure spiders can survive a long time without food. Not sure how accurate this article is...
A few back of the envelope calculations. This gives a range of sand weights, from which I will use 1 ug. Now I'm going to define "visibly move" as motion over a distance of 1 mm over the course of .1 s. That gives a speed of .01 m/s, a speed which let's say we attain over the course of .01 s, for an acceleration of 1 m/s^(2). From Newton's Law, that equates to a force of 10^-9 N. That's applied over let's say .1 mm, for an amount of work done equal to 10^-13 Joules. This gives 3.2 X 10^-11 Joules for a single fissioned U-235 atom.
So yes, it's well within the realm of possibility.
You might be aware but just in case... "To get spray paint off a tree without harming the tree you can try trunk paint, taking a wire bristle brush to scrape off (if bark is thick), you can also make a paste with a dark soil to cover the paint until it wears away. Using anything chemical will damage the tree." link
I don't know if that's a fair comparison. A feather weighs less than 10 mg, so comparing to an object around 1 g is orders of magnitude off--if the grain of sand's mass is 100x the feather's mass, it has 100x the kinetic energy. Also, the meteoroid would have a shape much less conducive to drag, so it will be entering denser atmosphere at a higher velocity, meaning a huge amount more skin friction drag (where a lot of the heating comes from).
That's not to say the feather won't burn up, but using the meteoroid comparison doesn't really hold up.
I think I can do this one.
According to this a camel can support about 1,000 pounds (456.6 kg)
Wolfram alpha doesn't have anything about straw, but I found hay has a density of 384 kg/m^3 when it's pressed.
a 1.189 cubic meter block of pressed hay would hypothetically break the camel's back.
But the number of straws is a bit trickier:
Lets say a strand of straw is .57 m x .005 m x .01m when compressed, has a volume of 2.85 x10^-5 m^3. Therefore the mass of a straw is roughly .011 kg.
.011 / 456.6 = 41,511 straws
Its ok OP I got this. Oral = mouth to dick/vag, kiss = mouth to mouth , so really we can just ask which is dirtier, the mouth or the genitals? In which case you'll find that actually the mouth is the dirtiest part of the body in general.

> What is the actual danger of off leash dogs, if you can prove they are behaved?
For one thing, an off-leash dog has much higher potential to walk up to people and other dogs, vs. leashed dogs. Some people do not want dogs to come up to them. It's surprisingly often for religious reasons. Some leashed dogs will immediately attack other dogs. So there's that.
There's also the Van Halen Test. If you cannot follow a law as simple as "Keep your dog on a leash," how can you possibly be expected to raise and train a dog properly? Should I just trust that you and your dog are going to obey unwritten rules of decorum, when neither of you are willing to obey codified, well-known laws? Or should I just risk it?
> On average, the human femur requires 1,700 pounds per square inch to be cleanly broken
There are a lot of other factors than just PSI, but I'm guessing 1200-1500 if the femur is at 1700.
The average person farts 14 times per day and the average commuters travels 50 minutes a day. We will round up to an hour since people are in their cars for reasons other then commuting. Assuming equal distribution of farts that means you fart .58 times per hour. So in 365 days a there will be about 212 farts in the car.
Sadly most animals forget to wake back up after dying. However, as is scientificallicky proven, cats have 9 lives, since they tend to sleep a lot anyway and have more practise at waking up.
According to this page there are approximately 600 million domestic cats in the world. We simply don't know how many living creatures are on the planet as a whole, but this page here gives the most accurate estimate I've seen of roughly zillions. A zillion is definitely over a bajillion which is also over a trillion so let's conservatively say there are 1 trillion living things alive right now (I am not including bacteria in this figure but it does include politicians).
So it works out at 600,000,000 * 8 cat lives (since they won't wake up from the last one) = 4,800,000,000 lives. Divide that into 1,000,000,000,000 and you get 0.48% of animals that wake back up, or 99.52% of animals that don't.
Therefore the answer to your question is that cats are assholes.
An apple is about 100 g. The observable universe is about 3.4e57 g. If he doubled his consumption every day (and was able to circumvent the speed of light barrier, and not turn into a black hole, doesn't need to excrete waste, etc etc.), he will finish consuming the universe on day 185.
With this new info, assuming an ant weighs 3 mg
1.14 kcal/week/gram * 0.003 gram * 26 weeks = 0.09 kcals burned by ant in it's lifetime, equivalent to around 2 steps of a human being..
I'm sure a powerful stomp would consume 0.09 kcals though..
edit: Also, with the act of stepping on an ant, we're effectively reducing its lifetime. (Assuming a uniform distribution of age of travelling ants, ants which are stepped on live an average of 90 days).. In this paradigm, the ants burn 0.045 kcals in their lifetime on average, hence the act of stepping on an ant exerts more energy than that ant exerts in its entire life.
I love older Berettas and have been collecting them for a few years. Technically all three of these pistols are BB models and pre-date the use of the “Cheetah” name. However, Cheetah has become a popular nickname for all of the Series 81 pistols. Here is my coalition of Cheetahs in .22lr, .32 ACP, and .380 ACP
Beretta 87BB - .22lr
This is my absolute favorite .22 pistol and my favorite Cheetah. It feels and handles like a full-size serious duty-caliber pistol and is very reliable and accurate.
Beretta 81BB – .32 ACP (7.65 mm)
.32 ACP is a fantastic little cartridge designed by none other than John Browning himself. The .32 ACP has a long history of military and police use and is very enjoyable to shoot. The 81BB is a lot of fun to shoot and is a great teaching gun with its low recoil and good accuracy.
Beretta 84BB - .380 ACP (9 mm Short)
This pistol is chambered in another John Browning designed cartridge. The Model 84 is the double-stack version of the .380 Cheetah and holds 13+1 rounds. The trade-off for that higher capacity is a much chunkier grip than the slim single-stack Model 84. These guns are regularly available from CDI for less than $300 and are a great way to get into Cheetahs.
I love the Beretta Series 81 pistols and have collected a few.
The great wall of china is reported to have cost over twice as much, but any such comparison is fraught with difficulty considering the different economic systems in place.
According to this there are about 10 quadrillion ants on Earth, and according to this an elephant such as you describe weighs 5455 kg. So that's 5.5 x 10^19 kilograms of elephant. Finding the mass of the biosphere was harder, but this gives estimates ranging from 1.8 x 10^15 kg to 1.1 x 10^16 kg.
So somewhere between five thousand and fifty thousand kilograms of elephant meat for every kilogram of non-elephant organic matter. It's the end of the world, it seems unlikely that any large animals will survive this mass extinction.

Goomba stomp.. meaning just jump up and jump down, both feet on a head?
Well, the average skull of a healthy person can take ~500lbs of pressure (Source) before it would cave in. That being said, you're not carrying around a 500lbs iron cube, you're jumping up and down on someone, presumably in a fight of some kind.

good quote anyway
I was about to say you were wrong and that a bus doesn't weight that much but it turns out you were right a fully loaded bus does weigh 20 tons :/ For perspective a dumptruck only weighs about 11.3 tons empty and 27.5 tons fully loaded.
The femur, which is the strongest bone in the body, requires 1700 pounds per square inch to be cleanly broken (source).
Not sure how much force you'd need to exert on a person to get 1700 pounds per square inch though.
Here we go:
911 gets a call from a woman inside a residence saying they are being hurt(for argument lets say it's a landline so they know it's the residence)- police respond and a man answers the door saying there is no issue- police have the right to enter the house to ensure there is no crime being committed.
An elderly person is living by himself in a house- neighbor calls saying they are not answering their phone or responding to knock- police can do a welfare check and enter the house
> fuel cost isn't that significant of a factor for your specific ticket
To further this argument, the airlines have published a breakdown of what a ticket's cost is made up of: Only 20% of that is fuel cost, so you could only justify increasing the price by a maximum of 20% if the other flier is twice as heavy as the average flyer.
However, that 20% is the cost to move the passengers, the luggage, the aircraft and the fuel itself:
A Boeing 737-100 has a base weight of 62,000 lbs and a maximum takeoff weight of 111,000 lbs, meaning that it can hold 49,000 lbs of "stuff"
The same plane can hold 4,720 gallons of fuel. At about 6lbs a gallon that is 28,320 in fuel weight. This means that passengers and luggage account for about 20,600 lbs, or 18% of the total aircraft weight.
Thus, the maximum percentage of your ticket cost that is attributable to passenger (plus luggage) weight is 3.7%.
So, if I buy a $500 and a man twice my weight buys the same ticket, the maximum you'd be justified charging him for his "extra" weight is $19.
That just isn't worth the PR backlash.
I guess it would simply be the weight-to-energy ratio. I know its definitely a problem with solar energy right now, but I think its a problem with the automotive industry too. See, where the 1200 lb battery cell found in Teslas can do 265 miles per charge, the same can be achieved with 10.5 gallons (6 lbs times 10.5 gallons [260 miles / 25 MPG] equals 63 lbs) of fuel in a 2015 Chevy Malibu.
If my math is right (and anyone should feel free to correct me if I am wrong), you can do 5,035 miles with 1200 lbs of fuel, whereas thats only 265 miles with a single charge on the tesla.
TL;DR: Batteries are really heavy and gasoline is really light.
Let's do some math:
According to the internet, a hummingbird can weigh up to 20 grams. The feathers of a wild bird can be 15-20% of it's body weight. So, let's take a fat, fluffy hummingbird. 20% of 20g is 4g. Now, 200 pounds is 90,7kg or 90700g. Divided by 4 = 22675. That's a whole lot of fat, formerly fluffy but now naked hummingbirds. You monster.
According to the Q&A section this 'Google' is apparently better than Ask Jeeves.
I sell janitorial/restaurant/hotel supplies. I was curious after reading this post and I did the math. One single Urnal puck without a screen from our brand costs 98 cents. You can only get a case of 24 individual pucks because we don't break them up. now one puck can last roughly a month. but I'll be generous let's say it takes a week per puck. Additionally, I would expect a orange to last a day in this bathroom due to the exposure to piss all day.
so $0.98 ÷ 1 week (7 days) = $0.14 a day.
Oranges on average* cost $2.71 for 1kg.
oranges on average** weigh 5oz for 1 orange
there is 35 oz in a kg. so 35 ÷ 5 = 7
there is 7 days in a week so one week costs you $2.71 ($0.38 a day) opposed to $0.98 for a commercial enzyme deodorant. (which btw helps prevent buildup in your drains.)

Hippos - "Easily frightened and extremely aggressive, hippos will not hesitate to attack a human...Death Toll: 300+ per year"

Even if you assumed it was a average MLB fastball (88mph), that's still only 11mph, which apparently is just under the average human sprinting speed (12-15mph).
The average car has 30,000 parts. Assuming that each part has to be installed in a specific order, you have 30,000! permutations, which is a number larger than any website I could find can calculate. Add in to this the information that each part must go in a specific location, and the probability is essentially 0.
There's no mention of where this happened so I'll assume he's in California since that's the most populated state and because it was the first link from google that showed me how much it costs to keep someone in jail.

In most industries usually pensions are given out as a percentage of salary. I just did a bit of research and it appears the NFL instead chose to give a pension to any player that plays 3 seasons or more and pay out on a per season basis. As of 2014 the rate was $475 per season played. Given that playing in the NFL pretty much destroys your body I'd say that is pretty fair. People who play a long amount of time are putting themselves at high risk of injury and things like brain damage from CTE. This is not the only source of income for NFL players, they also have an annuity with funds matching they can contribute to as well as annual Royalty checks.
It only affects his pension in that it is very difficult to stay around for any length of time if you aren't exceptionally good. There are always younger players coming up that want your job and if you are just mediocre it's not hard to imagine them giving you the axe. OJ played in the league from 1969-1979, so 10 seasons.
Bleach + baking soda is harmless, and actually mixing them improves the cleaning power of both. Bleach + ammonia is the unsafe one.
There are 27,878,400 square feet in a square mile so one square mile could accommodate 1,393,920 graves
1,393,920 Graves per square mile * 57,268,900 square miles of land =
79 trillion, 828 billion 265 million 88 thousand graves.
This is roughly 10,000 times the living population of Earth.
Roughly 3% of land is urban (we really can't take into effect how much more is going to be taken up)
"Only" 60 billion people have ever lived, and the UN estimates that population growth will level out at 12 billion living persons within 50 years.
So 12 billion speople, each living to be 75 means 12 billion new people (or graves) every 75 years. It will take around 66,500 iterations to reach 79.8 trillion
Finally take 66,500 iterations * 75 year life span and you get a little under 500,000 years.
The fastest human (Usain Bolt) runs approximately 51 body lengths per second.
As my teachers always said, show your work:
*Usain Bolt ran 100m in 9.6 seconds, or 12.42m/s
According to this source, the average human length (measured as the widest part when viewed in profile,same as the animals quoted before) is 9.5 inches or 24 cm).
Furthermore, the average person can run up to 15mph for a short sprint, which gives them a running speed of nearly 30 bl/s.
Edit: for those claiming that I didn't use body length, I was comparing the distance ran over the distance the person covers on the ground.
For people who say that isn't correct, I'll also use height/s. Usain bolt would have ran approximately 7 heights per second and the average person runs a little over 3.

I wager if it was true then your local bird breeder would be fingerless. There are a lot of times an angry parrot bites, and hard. They will break flesh, remove chunks of it, but I have never lost a finger. It would take far too precise a bite to sever the finger or make it snap.
This site suggests a large macaw could apply 700 psi with its break.
This site suggests a human finger can withstand up to 160 psi.
So I suppose you could expect a parrot to break a finger. But I am sure there are factors like localized stress that prevent it, among other things.
Average american bedroom is betwen 120 and 150 square feet, If you're a teenager stuck using your bedroom and "aren't allowed" to throw out furniture for gaming, if you have children or dogs and aren't willing to flail around blindly in the living room, if your computer is in room that doubles as a guest bedroom...these people probably have their computer in a room sharing a bed and a dresser, plus a computer desk.
The most common size was 2.5x5 meters. So, 8.2 x 5.6 feet. If you're confined to a 12x12 foot bedroom, that'e the width from the edge of the bed to the wall, with something in the corner of the room stopping you from using its full length.
I agree, it seems a very small space compared to what should be possible. I think the takeaway here is that the typical person isn't moving any furniture. They're simply plugging the headset in and using what they have.
Even if it WERE true (which of course, it isn't. 95% of people who dedicate to a change in their lifestyle in regards to weight do not fail. 95% of people who "go on a diet", as if such a thing existed, for a weekend then expect permanent results fail), that doesn't mean it wouldn't still be worth to try. 97% of Americans don't have a PhD or other advanced degree. That doesn't mean you shouldn't follow that dream if you have it. It is absolutely achievable, after all.
This weak, flaccid mentality pisses me off to no end. It's clear that this is the result of decades of shitty parenting, leading to a generation of millennial spoiled princesses.
If it just were the parenting that was shitty that'd be one thing, but Western societies also seems to not value good examples and role models for the young generation any longer. They still exist, but instead of living by examples or explaining to our kids that self-improvement is hard and painful, we prefer to tell them that it's O.K. and their problems aren't such, it's just their environment that makes them "problems".
That is a fake/later replica. If you are going by 'replicas' being real then there are literally hundreds of them: [link]
However there are 2 other real Statues of Liberty in France, they were created by the original sculptor. One was the model he created before making the full scale one and both are still on display now.
> The first of the Parisian Liberties is found in the Jardin du Luxembourg (Luxembourg Garden). Erected in 1906, this Liberty is a miniature bronze model created by Bartholdi for use as a visual aid during the construction of the larger New York statue. The second Parisian Liberty is located on the Ile aux Cygnes (Island of Swans) in the Seine River, not too distant from the Eiffel Tower. This 37-foot high replica was erected on July 4, 1889 on the centennial of the Storming of the Bastille, in commemoration of both American Independence and the French Revolution.
They don't always, in fact they open their eyes while in the womb
EDIT: actual source is that I'm currently sitting in a labor/delivery conference room (med student), but thought i'd give you a link
There are 48 princesses in the world.
There are 505 astronauts as of 2009.
There are roughly 7 billion people in the world.
You are more than 10 times more likely to be an astronaut than a princess. Both are astronomically unlikely.
It only looks smaller when you spread it out, neither the mass nor the volume is reduced by spreading it thin.
She would still be giving up almost 6% of her body weight in muscle. Lets do a little math, lets say she has the muscle mass of your average male, lets give her the high end of about 50% so the math is simple.
Of her body weight (assuming her 175 statement is accurate) 87.5 lbs of her is muscle, if she were to cut 10 lbs of muscle she would be giving up over 11% of her muscle mass. That is giving her the muscle mass of a high end male. If we use the female high end of 39% muscle mass then she will be cutting almost 15% of her muscle mass.
It's a lot of meat, no matter how you choose to slice it.
Oh and the %s came from this site, hardly definitive but I was just throwing ball park figures around.
That's a tricky subject indeed, but very well thought out with good points. Not saying that I disagree with you, but I'll play Devil's advocate and make an opposing argument:
Honestly, Dontnod is throwing so many curve-balls that I wouldn't be surprised.
Probably a thalidomide baby
Edit: I'm so wrong. Thanks for the gentle correction and info /u/babylon-pride
Using this highly reliable resource. we can see that the average height is 6'2".
So about 6.17 feet tall.
This new area is 16,344.68 times larger and so is our player bringing his height to be 100,846.6756
or about 100,846'8" tall.
I see a lot of estimates that are 3 mg ([link]) Because not all ants weigh the same amount, this may not be useful; I'm guessing that the "averages" are not weighted by weight, and over-represent the smaller ants.
It still leaves us with a nice gap between, say, a very generous 10kg of ants per person, and a very modest 50kg weight per person.
A predicate offense is a crime that, as a matter of logic or statutory provision, is or must be a part of an offense. For instance the crime of assault is an attempt to commit battery. Assault might thus be called the predicate offense to battery.
Hmm. Averaging the weight ranges given on Wikipedia for male and female birds gives us 587g (0.587 kg) for a male and 1205g (1.205kg) for a female.
Their top speed in a stoop is "over 322 km/h." Let's go with 322 km/h. That translates to 89.4444 m/s.
I'm not sure how to define the length of time the impact would take in order to calculate acceleration. Let's go with a tenth of a second to keep the math simple.
0.587kg*89.4444m/s, divided by 0.1 second = 525.03 N
1.205kg*89.4444m/s, divided by 0.1 second = 1077.80 N
According to this link it takes about 3300 N to fracture someone's rib and around 4000 to fracture a femur. Having a hard time finding a number for cracking a skull, but I imagine it's somewhere in that neighbourhood.
I'm not a mathemetician or a biologist, but I'm gonna say no. It would hurt like shit and you would definitely sustain some flesh wounds, but even if it pegs you on the top of the head I'm pretty sure you'd walk away from it. They're just not heavy enough.
These are the first numbers that popped up from a Google search
Reddit is estimated to have 43 million users
CNN is estimated to have 42 million regular viewers
Then there's the fact that people don't trust mainstream media sources nearly as much as they have in the past. Information on reddit is exchanged through personal anecdotes and discussion amongst peers. There is a sense of a community. A lot of people love and trust this site.
Then there's the issue of demographics. Reddit is used primarily by college students. People who are forming their worldviews, open to new perspectives and will be determining the course of American history in the oncoming generation. It's a pretty significant group of people to sway.
Is reddit, without a doubt, more influential than CNN? No, there's a lot of room for debate and yeah, it may fall short a little. My statement was a hyperbole. However, is reddit a tremendously influential media outlet on the internet with an astonishing power to sway opinions and occasionally even organize action? Absolutely.
To jump in for a moment I want to address this:
>You know that plants can't survive for even a day without sun (or divine intervention) right?
Plants can live without sunlight given the right conditions, such as artificial light sources. Also, it is entirely possible for a plant to survive up to 24 hours without light. Just look at places like Alaska that have anywhere from 20-24 hours of darkness on their shortest days and plants live there just fine.
Even without it God created light before the sun anyways (he is the light in this particular case), so he could have acted as the artificial light before the sun was formed (eluding to your idea of divine intervention).
At 8 pounds per gallon, it takes 250 gallons of water to equal a ton. I have a basement entrance to my house and during a bad rain the drain got clogged. It formed a puddle about 1.5" deep in the deepest spot and was maybe 4'x8' (although I'm bad with distance guesses like this). It held approximately 60 gallons of water.
But to do some math, if a river was 20' across, and average of 10' deep and we're talking about a section of it that's say 20' across, we're talking 4000 cubic feet of water. Ask.com says a cubic foot of water weighs approximately 62.3 pounds. So you'd be surrounded by about a quarter million pounds of water.
But a bigger river and counting a slightly larger section and you're probably well into the millions of pounds of water. Then again that probably have very little relevance to how easy it is to escape. As it's no harder to swim in an ocean than it is in a pool, and there's a huge difference in the weight of the water around you. In this case I think it'd have to be based on how fast the water was travelling and what kind of turbulence was induced.
The original cost of an RD-180 was $10 million. Let's say that's gone up since the 90s, and it costs $25 million. There are roughly six Atlas launches per year for the US Department of Defense, so they spend a total of $150 million on engines.
There are 243 million taxpayers in the United States.
Assuming everyone shares the burden equally (not really true with the progressive tax system in America), then each taxpayer has spent $0.61 this year on rocket engines.
Your neck is a lot stronger than you think.
Still a dangerous move, but it'd be tough to get that much force to break the neck. Concussion more likely IMO
EDIT: try to find a single report of someone getting seriously hurt by an RKO. It looks cool, but isn't really dangerous
Can't find the comment now but to whoever posted that women have better hand-eye coordination, it's simply not true. Of course any given woman could have the best hand-eye coordination ever but generally speaking, not the case.
Being a better shooter/sniper could be true I have no idea but the hand eye coordination thing, not so much.
> “He was essentially gambling with taxpayers’ bailout dollars, and it was taxpayers who ultimately lost.”
There are approximately 243 million federal taxpayers in the United States. Ignoring leap years, there are 2920 days in 8 years. So that means he is serving approximately 1.2e-5 days per taxpayer, or 1.03 seconds per taxpayer, if he serves the full sentence.
I'm not an expert, but apparently this can be caused by storm clouds filtering sunlight :) [link] and [link]
I'm pretty sure it was the plants that were crushed under their feet and bacteria and algae then the pressure and cooking and then maybe some sort of fermentation like process where bacteria ate something and pooped out something.
That's the same in every country with universal healthcare though.
The UK has 29.3m taxpayers (source - [link]) for a population of around 64m.
I can't find a reliable source anywhere for the US, though I might just not know what to search for. The best I can find is an Ask.com page ([link]) which states that the US has 122m taxpayers (as of 2013), from a population of 316m.
As a population of adults, this gives the UK 53% of adults as taxpayers, compared to around 50% in the US - not that big a difference.
I live about 30 minutes from 'Muricas most visited national park. Lots of folks around here drive those intimidatingly big vehicles, and every time I hit the trails, all I notice is purple mountains majesty and the sweet, sweet scent of FREEDOM on the mountain air.
DIY come on!
Where you could get one, you're joking right? Unless it's some flower stencils from a craft store people usually just make their own. They don't buy them somewhere.
Here's a good instructional video - [link]
Stencil art painted on buildings as graffiti and on the back of leather jackets are usually done with spray paint mate, not "leather" paint as you put it. Just make a stencil, get some spray paint and wallah. People use to use brushes and hand paint some stuff on jackets but most people I know now days use either a paint pen to hand draw or spray paint when using a stencil.
You can also make salt dough clay ornaments.
1 cup flour
1 cup salt
1 cup water
Mix it up and you have a nice clay. Make your ornaments and let them dry. You can paint them, glitter or whatever you like. We never sealed them though you may want to depending on how humid a climate you live in. I've had some my kids made that have lasted for years, bugs are no problem because of the salt.
I've also heard of people making a clay from stale bread and white glue. It should be paint-able when dry too.
EDIT: Found this link to several different dough clay recipes:
You didn't actually do anything, other than find a page which itself happens to be (unintentionally) exploiting some sort of hole.
Edit: I'm wrong -- I lazily only tested in chrome with its XSS protection enabled (somewhat impressive that the "David" alert gets through in that context). In non-XSS protected browsers, your XSS works as well.
That's pretty harsh. The type of bike that he was riding is generally called a mountain bike, and a male antelope is called a buck. Plus the guy with the camera yelled, "watch the buck" in the sound version.
i'm not sure you understand that to break your hand on someones face you actually have to be throwing a punch. This wasn't a play hit, this wasn't goofing around, you have to put power behind a punch to break your hand.
Assuming that he's fairly healthy his bones should break somewhere between 25lbs to 160lbs (though unlikely). This means that a 10kg fist would need to be accelerating faster than 11 m/s2 to break a hand.
I admit this is a rough model, it's not taking into account additional force from the body that can occur if the punch is thrown correctly. however, it does prove the point. The fact that he broke his hand means that he had to have landed a solid hit with some power behind it.
That how I justify it being worse that he broke his hand hitting the guy than if he did not break his hand. It could just mean that he is a terrible puncher as well, but to me it screams that he threw a solid punch that he meant to do damage with
Side note..more research.
A femur, which is the largest bone in the leg and the body as a whole, can be fractured with approximately 4000 newtons of energy, according to an article in SciFighting. ([link])
Doing some math that I thought i would never end up using..(Asuming, when Nora hit yang through the roof (Using some stats from the DeathBattleVid) she was free falling in a unstable state, hitting about 480 km/h (300 mph) [link]
Which means Yang had a Kenitic Energy of around 7050240 joules/Newtons. (1 Joule is Equal to 1 Newton) So...basically with that hit Nora could break 1762 and a half femers (roughly).
This is what's so ridiculous about the whole thing to me.
Unless you were watching WDBJ live in Virginia yesterday morning (which probably .0001% of Reddit was) you had to activity go out and seek the video of these two people being murdered on live TV. You had to make the conscious decision of clicking the link knowing full well what you were going to be viewing.
Around 44 people in the USA are murdered every day. It's tragic. But these two murders got turned into world wide news because of the circumstances. Circumstances you wanted to watch because morbid curiosity is human nature.
There's no reason for these murders to be any more upsetting than the other 44 murders that happen every day in this country - unless you took it upon yourself to watch these people die.
If humans are morbid enough to seek out videos of real people dying - I am sure they can handle fictional characters dying.
So, a bit over 636 trillion lbs of rice? (If we assume that this comment about there being about 29k grains per lb) or a bit over 460 billion metric tons if wikipedia's answer is correct.
Using these statistics:
It would be 1469.73 bananas by weight (we'll round that to 1470).
By standard end on end stacking we would need 2687.5 bananas to match the height - which presents a bit of a problem since we will need more bananas to reach desired height than we are limited to by matching the weight.
Unless of course we halve the bananas vertically and stack them - such that we need 1343.75 halved bananas to reach the height. This still doesn't match the weight so we will add 25.25 halved bananas at the base to stabilize things.
The value of 1470 bananas is (using the agreed price of 25c per banana found here..) $367.50 - making this a much more financially responsible experiment.
> Yes, I am [willing to pay extra taxes to provide basic income for the poor].
Are you sure about that? In the US, there are about 43 million people below the poverty line and 122 million taxpayers. Given the poverty line being somewhere around $11k/year, a basic income that brings people above that would translate to about $3,000-4,000 per year per tax payer, or $250-$333 per month.
Given how little savings the average person has currently, do you honestly think most middle class families can afford to lose $3,000-8,000 (assuming a 2 income family) every year in perpetuity? That's enough to buy a new car every 5 years. That's enough to buy a decent (if small) home over 30 years ($3k * 2 earners * 30 years == 180k).
...and that's just ensuring that these individuals are at the poverty line...
Yeah, England is about 300 miles (482.8km) wide at its widest, and the US is roughly 3400 miles (5471km) wide. You could fit about 11 Englands in the United States, side to side.
The average banana has a density of 1.14 g/cm^3 and weighs 126 grams. (Source, Source). The average volume of a single banana is 126/1.14 = 111 cm^3 . So, all those bananas will have a total volume of 5050*111/10^6 = 0.561 m^3 , where I have divided by 10^6 to convert cm^3 to m^3 . This easily fits in an elevator, even if you take into account that you can't perfectly stack the bananas as if they were bricks.
>Considering the thousands of individuals any one person meets just during their adolescence alone, the average person may well meet upwards of 10,000 people in a lifetime. Nonetheless, calculating how many people the average person physically meets in a lifetime is a somewhat impossible statistic.
>This number can, of course, change substantially based on an individual's line of work. A person who works at home after graduating school will probably have far fewer actual meetings than a traveling salesman who may physically meets thousands of people in just a single year. Famous celebrities may meet upwards of 10,000 people in a single year from public appearances alone, or being recognized on the street.
According to this nonofficial source, yes. On this site it also explain the latin origin. -Kat :)
Actually, I'm pretty sure this would fall under Strong Arm Robbery.
>The definition of a strong armed robbery is one that uses force in the commission of the robbery. It is the sudden snatching of property or money with the intent to deprive the owner of the property.
Pinging a cellphone is the process of discovering what cell tower a phone is on.
Top 3 sources from googling "What is pinging a cellphone":
His mother's maiden name is a Ukrainian name meaning "son or daughter of Fedor".
I don't have a source for this, but an archived Sherdog thread claims the name Emelianenko is "100% Ukrainian".
For what it's worth, the ending "enko" is very common for Ukrainian names.
