“Folks, it's time to evolve. That's why we're troubled. You know why our institutions are failing us, the church, the state, everything's failing? It's because, um – they're no longer relevant. We're supposed to keep evolving. Evolution did not end with us growing opposable thumbs. You do know that, right?”
The basic definition of the density of a substance is the ratio of the mass of
a given amount of the substance to the volume it occupies. For liquids, this
definition is generally satisfactory. However, since gases are compressible,
further clarification is required.
The mean density is the ratio of the mass of a given amount of a substance
Mean density to the volume that this amount occupies. If the mean density in all parts of
a substance is the same then the density is said to be uniform
he density at a point is the limit to which the mean density tends as the
Density at a point
volume considered is indefinitely reduced, that is limv→0(m/V). As a math-
ematical definition this is satisfactory; since, however, all matter actually
consists of separate molecules, we should think of the volume reduced not
absolutely to zero, but to an exceedingly small amount that is nevertheless
large enough to contain a considerable number of molecules. The concept
of a continuum is thus implicit in the definition of density at a point
The relative density is the ratio of the density of a substance to some standard Relative density
density. The standard density chosen for comparison with the density of a
solid or a liquid is invariably that of water at 4◦C. For a gas, the standard
density may be that of air or that of hydrogen, although for gases the term
is little used. (The termspecific gravity has also been used for the relative
density of a solid or a liquid, but relative density is much to be preferred.)
As relative density is the ratio of two magnitudes of the same kind it is merely
a numeric without unit
The Disappearance of the Anasazi is a question debated by Archeologists who are still trying to figure out exactly why they left
the American Southwest. Many theories abound, overpopulation, severe and persistant drought, warfare, an overuse of natural resources?
I think I have found a piece of evidence that could finally shed some light on the mystery.......
This petroglyph, found at Anasazi Ridge in Southwestern Utah clearly depicts a Dalek. Being one of the most feared races in the universe and with their intentions of destroying all life, it seems clear to me that the Anasazi meet their demise at the hands of the Dalek
Brandon will begin pitching in the World Tournament starting Thursday the 25th, So if you have no interested in Horseshoe pitching, then it would
be a good time to take a break from Oddities Curios and Other Repressed Emotions.
Regularly scheduled programming will return on Monday 7-29-13.

Pioneer Day is an official holiday celebrated on July 24 in the U.S. state of Utah, with some celebrations in regions of surrounding states originally settled by Mormon pioneers. It commemorates the entry of Brigham Young and the first group of Mormon pioneers into the Salt Lake Valley on July 24, 1847, where the Latter-day Saints settled after being forced from Nauvoo, Illinois, and other locations in the eastern United States. Parades, fireworks, rodeos, and other festivities help commemorate the event. Similar to July 4, most governmental offices and many businesses are closed on Pioneer Day
The titan arum (Amorphophallus titanum), also known as the corpse flower or stinky plant, is about to bloom at the United States Botanic Garden Conservatory! Once fully open, it may remain in bloom for 24 to 48 hours, and then it will collapse quickly.
The Louvre Doll is a 4th century clay figure impaled with thirteen bronze needles. It was discovered within a terracotta vase alongside a lead curse tablet engraved with a binding spell - a type of curse in which usually someone has asked the gods to do harm to another. The figure, with its hands bound behind its back, represents the intended target.
NASA has been accused of covering up evidence of all manner of lifeforms on Mars: lizards, snakes, rats and squirrels, among other things. But has it really been covering up an even bigger secret?
Yes indeed, according to an article Thomas Elway wrote for the May 1930 Popular Science.
He starts off with a catalog of facts about Mars: "Mars is so like the earth that men might live there. It has air, water, vegetation, and a twenty-four hour succession of day and night, and daily temperatures no hotter and nights not much colder than are known on earth. But because Mars has no mountain ranges and probably never had an ice age, it is considered high improbable that it is inhabited by manlike creatures..."
What Mars is inhabited by, Elway concludes, is giant beavers.
His reasoning is impeccable. Mars, he tells us, has oxygen. Only plants can produce free oxygen in an atmosphere. Therefore Mars has plants. Since Mars resembles earth in just about every other way, Elway reasons that the evolution of life on Mars proceeded along similar lines.
But, without having had an Ice Age—which on earth created the "stress and competition that is supposed to have turned mankind's anthropoid ancestors into men"—there can be no intelligent life on the red planet. What animal life there is must still be "in the age of instinct."
YouTube user telegenicx slows songs down and stretches them out into long and languid sonic experiences. Ron Grainer's original 1963 Doctor Who theme song is particularly well suited to this time stretching, transforming into 20 minutes of otherworldly mood music.
This is a video that was made to poke fun at all of the nonsense on the internet dealing with race... There is a large number of people that seem to surf the net looking for racist shit they can comment about...
After years of obsessive scrapbooking, having surrounded herself with inspirational quotes,
she realized that her soul did indeed have wings.
They were small and dark, with dusty hair-like feathers, and appeared to belong to some large flightless
bird, like an Emu or an Ostrich. It took her some time to accept with such wings,
her soul would never soar.
But the fact that she could kick a man's lungs out through his spine was ultimately some small consolation.
In 2013, sixteen people were killed and hundreds more were injured when a truck carrying fireworks for a religious ceremony exploded in a forty-three thousand square foot open-air marketplace in Mexico. The accident started when a lit firework misfired and landed in the fireworks-laden truck. The aftermath showed a gruesome scene of bodies and debris littering a one hundred mile radius.
During a July 4th backyard celebration, around thirty people were in a house partying while their young children played with sparklers outside. Suddenly, a tiny spark from one of the sparklers fell into a bag of unused fireworks, which exploded at ground level. Seven people were badly injured, five of whom were children, and one woman had major burns on over half of her body.
In 2013, a truck carrying Chinese New Year fireworks exploded and destroyed part of an elevated highway bridge in China's Henan Province. Two hundred and sixty feet of the bridge collapsed, sending vehicles plunging more than a hundred feet to the ground.
The explosion and highway destruction killed twenty-six people and injured countless more.
A newlywed husband and father was killed in front of his family when some backyard fireworks exploded and hit him in the throat. Nineteen-year-old Austin McCloud was celebrating Independence Day with his wife, his son, his step-son (both of whom were toddlers at the time), and several other family members in their backyard, when a firework misfired and killed him instantly.
In 2004, another explosion in a fireworks factory detonated one thousand two hundred tons of fireworks in a fireworks factory in a small town in Denmark. Though only one fireman lost his life, another thirty-four firefighters suffered severe health problems due to burns and smoke inhalation. Additionally, seventeen area residents were injured in the blast, and the explosion ultimately cost the town one hundred and forty million dollars worth of damage. Ouch!
In 2011, 41-year-old Jesse William Burley of Fargo, North Dakota was decapitated by a mortar-style firework when he attempted to set off fireworks to celebrate July 4th in his suburban neighborhood. Burley had already set off one of the explosive devices, but when he attempted to detonate the second one, the fireworks exploded and blew off his head. Several neighbors, including small children, witnessed the incident.
Remember how your cat was waging a long-con, biological war on you? And then — with suspicious abruptness — it wasn’t waging war on you anymore and you were like, “But I could have sworn...” uneasily returning to your household chores with a creeping feeling that your cat hadn’t abandoned its murderous plans? Well, it turns out you were right to be uneasy — you’re cat is still trying to kill you, only this time not with parasites. This time, it’s tuberculosis.
