May not be a music video but I feel like this is the vibe you're going for.

Sup guys

so I got an email this evening from here quaintly titled "Hey motherfuckers!" 

I haven't been active in years so I decided it's worth a post here

Hi, I'm DifferentTurret, 17, a competitive Super Smash Bros. Melee player, I live in NC and I'm gonna try to be more active here again.

How have y'all been?

#86638 Scientists Slow Down Speed of Light

Also of note, a better way of creating a real life lightsaber is to superheat something (after a certain point all objects emit a dull red glow, which increases  in brightness as temperature increases), somehow keep it in place and reduce the mass of the substance to almost zero, and you have a lightsaber. How you keep the material at that temperature is beyond me. I have an understanding of physics and chemistry (as much as AP covers, at least) but I've always struggled with thermodynamics.

#86637 Scientists Slow Down Speed of Light

The problem with the light saber idea is that in order to change the speed of a wave you must change the medium in which it travels. If light is sitting still, how is it reaching your eye? It's not. Fixed light would not look like anything. Additionally, in order to properly encase the light, it would likely be held in some form of glass (the medium and the light itself) resulting in a glass stick that looks like nothing's in it.

Welcome to the forum!
(P.S. if you love "who would win" arguments, you must despise Smash Bros., where an anemic fitness instructor can beat the crap out of King Kong Jr. by hitting him with a soccer ball.)

Well, light is a wave, and the speed of a wave is determined by the medium through which it travels. Think of how sound travels faster through water and steel than it does through air. Find a medium in which light travels faster is my suggestion, although I'm sure people much smarter and more qualified than me have considered that idea and tested it already.

Additionally, scientists have already succeeded in stopping light. Albeit not in which the manner you're talking about, but I still feel it's noteworthy.

#70196 What do you do for fun that doesn't involve computes?

Punching orphans.

I read this when I was in study hall and I laughed so hard I was told I had to leave the room for 5 minutes.

If you ever want to talk about stuff or unload some weight in a not so public place, you are more than welcome to PM me any time.

I agree with this. If any of you need someone to talk to, I'm here. I doubt I could be of much use, but I'm there.

#70062 Why aren't their many female nerds?

Posted by Coconut Man on 04 May 2014 - 03:23 PM

I currently have two theories on Nerdgirl11. The first is of course that she is a troll... who actually managed to troll us.


The second is that she has a severe lack of understand when it comes to socialization. She mentioned her ex has aspergers and that she found more nerds in the autism community, which is making me wander if she might have some form of autism herself.


Which is great, because if either case is true getting into a fight with her is rather shameful on our part.

In the first case, we can't really be upset with ourselves because we caught it before it devolved into a huge, HUGE fight. 
In the second case, since we weren't aware of that, we can't really blame ourselves either.

Yes, that's what it does!
