one of the lines above reminds me of something that happened to me today....
I'm driving and notice my leg is irratated...
Another min and the strange sensation is getting more irratating....I rub the leg...
Another min and it feels quite 'hot'....I'm more concerned...
Now it 'burns' so bad it hurts...I put my hand on the skin and it's hot....I can't imagine what's wrong...(maybe attack by some alien creatures???)...now it's just damn painful.....
I finally put my hand in my pocket and find a 9 VOLT BATTERY! (that I had totally forgotten was there.. It was too hot to hold...I guess it must have connected with a coin in my pocket. 20 mins later..still very hot.

You show unforeseen abilities, Holo. Study materials in your leisure time ? :]
But aglets, that's phenomenal; never thought that there's actualy a name for it. Wonder what's the German translation, can't find it in my preferred online dictionary...
However, seems i need some cathier questions:
- If you move in a vehicle at speed of light and turn up the headlights, what will happen?
- At which speed darkness spreads?

The Speed of Dark

I would assume that in a vehicle moving at the speed of light (assuming you could) with the headlights on, you would not see the headlights coming; you would see them when the vehicle passed by, but not coming, since the light from them is moving the smae speed as they are.
Darkness, I would guess, spreads at the same speed of light, for this reason:
If you place a lamp in the center of a dark room and turn it on, there is no darkness. Then, as soon as you turn off the light, the light that was emitted just before the lamp was turned off would be moving away from the lamp at the speed of light. Darkness is directly folllowing the light, so darkness must go the same speed of light.
P.S. If, according to Einstein, it would take an infinite amout of energy to make something (such as your vehicle) go the speed of light, how come light doesn't?
Why does it even take an infinite amount of energy?
And...this will keep you up tonight...
If the universe is constantly expanding, what's it expanding into? and what's where the universe hasn't expanded into yet? and how is there an infinite amount of space out there???
Oh man, the world is so mysterious...

oh, my god... haven't been here for a week or so, and what happens? I see dead threads coming back to life @_@"
Anyway, just spent some quality time with myself imagining how I'm gonna re-arrange my room into a home studio network... I'm just a rookie with all this networking stuff...
Anyway, I didn't read much and I don't have a clue what this is about, so I'm just here to say "HI Y'all..."(and to catch 370, of course...)
Been away for almost like a month now? I see new stuff here, like the sponsor strip, and of course, the empty entries in SiteExpert's "New Jobs" in the homepage, now this is new... A good thing though, I recall the last entry being about one or two years ago, it does need a bit of "cleaning", but it also seems that SiteExperts isn't the first choice for posting Job Ads, and occassionally I see Junk/Spam messages (that's how I'd call it) in the "Job Market"'s forum...
