    What business major is up studying all these concepts?

    I've made the move back to a healthy lifestyle as of late, but 2 Diet Rockstars later and I'm seeing cross-eyed. I don't think I feel this messed up when I'm under the influence of anything else.

    I wasn't going to stay up late, but its finals time and my buddy was having girl problems so I figured it was better to help the guy out before I took the time to study.


    and may i just add....... weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee


    Lets talk about thermonuclear warheads.

    Well as my friends have taught me, its because the school should eat a bag of dicks.

    I guess its the same reason I need Calculus for a business degree, yet in today's current age there's programs to solve any and all equations that I will ever need to solve in business. Nevermind the fact that I never intend to work in a number oriented department of a business. Oh yeah and my professor went to Brown, so he's intelligent but he's a french black guy with a funny accent and a d bag. What a dicknose.

    ...but did you know you need a concentration of about 40% U235 in U238 to become weapons grade and use an atomic bomb?

    My machine shop has an exclusive contract with Westinghouse. We make all the lock tubes and retainer sleeves for all the nuclear fuel rods in the United States. :D

    Thought you'd like to know.

    There is a guy out on the Honda forums named "RadioactiveMan". He tours the country with his CRX (With like, 1 million miles on it, no joke) and he's a nuclear pro. See if you can track him down.

    ...and you are still with her?


    And 2000si I would venture a guess that most people have no idea in regards to the depth of the things that we went into. Simply because someone may graze the surface of a particular topic thats common like radioactivity, carbon dating, or nuclear reactors doesn't mean that they've engulfed themselves in the subject area and are experts. I'm by no means an expert in these areas but now I have a far firmer grasp than the laymen.

    Also, you can self-teach anything. Many of the brilliant minds of history were self taught.

    yup, trying to convince her that Doctors of science at major universities understand more about the age of the earth then her parents.. which she actually disagrees with on many other things. But for some reason she clings to this, using the defense "They could be just making it up"...

    I read about a fossilized spool of barbed wire that they carbon dated to be thousands of years old. From what I remember, carbon dating is subject to a huge amount of error.

    he Bible speaks of behemoth (BEE him oath) and leviathan (lee VI eh thawn). The behemoth is most likely the dinosaur scientists refer to as Apatasaurus. Listen to what the Bible says in describing behemoth. [Read Job 40:15-19] Some people have mistaken this description as belonging to an elephant or hippopotamus. Now I ask you, does an elephant's tail look like a cedar tree? No, of course not. But look at this Apatasaurus picture; his tail is as big as a cedar tree!

    The Bible says God made the dinosaurs with man. They both lived peaceably, side-by-side, and were vegetarians. Neither man nor the animals were meat-eaters until after the flood. The terrible T-Rex may have become a meat-eater after the flood (and God's curse on the ground). The dinosaurs didn't live for millions of years before man as evolution says. Dinosaurs have never ruled the earth; mankind was given that task by God.

    The leviathan was a sea creature most closely resembling a Kronosaurus (KRONE oh SOR us). It seems this creature was still alive when King David wrote in Psalm 104:26 There go the ships: there is that leviathan, whom thou hast made to play therein. These creatures were all part of God's marvelous creation. We can praise our mighty God who makes all things well.

    I'm a certified nuclear engineer. I learned it all on google. ;)

    Not really. I get yelled at at work when I forget to put a goddamn ground on. Me in a nuclear plant would not be a good thing.

    Do you know who makes most of our nuclear warheads? The Air Force (among other branches, I'm sure, but this is from my experience). What's funny is it's a 'final exam.' We then take them and stockpile them.
