2+(2*2) would be 6
(2+2)*2 would be 8



Actually, 2+2*2=8 and there is no ambiguity in the answer if you know all the rules.

Multiplication has higher precedence than addition.


I know that multiplication precedes addition (or subtraction), I just figured he wouldn't have given such an easy question, so I covered all my bases.

Oh, I thought light had some (small)amount of mass to it.
I figured any non-zero-point energy had to have some type of mass.

You could be right, it might have a small mass, i wasn't claiming to know everything, just what i remember from school. It probably does have a small mass i think, but its part of quantum physics i believe, and i remember something about gravity not affecting quantum physics because the particles are too small.

Can God microwave a burrito so hot that He himself cant eat it?

If you cant create something your not and people are made in Gods image, how come there are evil people in the world. Does that mean God is good as well as evil, i thought he was without sin.

P.S. i don't mean to disrespect anyone, tread on anyones toes or start a religious discussion about those 2 questions.

I am willing to bet beyond a reasonable doubt that those questions will start a big flame war and get lots of people in trouble. That is theopia stuff. Take it there. Most of this is though, being off topic and what not.

The Russians actually researched launching their spent nuclear fuel into space. The problem is in the failure rate of missile launches.

Either way, imagine the environmental crisis if a missile loaded with radioactive nuclear waste burned up in the upper atmosphere ;) that's why we don't launch our nuclear material into space.

We're constructing a HUGE underground, leak-proof storage facility under Nevada's Yucca Mountain. It's supposed to hold all of America's nuclear waste for the next 70+ years.

Peace,

No harm done. I just didn't want another pointless argument going on.

Could it be that dogs don't like it when you blow in their ears? When my dog sticks her head out the window, she puts her ears back, but when I blow in her face, her ears twitch.

p.s. No dogs were harmed in the making of this post, I tried but couldn't catch any.

1. why does sheetz have locks if they are open 24 hours a day 7 days a week?

2. why do you drive on a parkway but park on a driveway?

3. what color does a smurf turn if you strangle him?

4. Why is it that when someone tells you that there’s billions of stars in the universe, you believe them. But if they tell you there’s wet paint somewhere you have to touch it?

5. Did you ever notice that if you blow in a dogs face it goes mad, yet when you take him on a car ride he sticks his head straight out the window?

6. Why isn’t the number 11 pronounced onety one?


7. If man evolved from monkeys and apes, why do we still have monkeys and apes?


8. How do they get the deer to cross at that yellow road sign?

9. What was the best thing before sliced bread?


10. Do you realize how many holes there could be if people would just take the time to take the dirt out of them?
_____________


1.) Holidays!
2.) Because the English source of those terms was retarded.
3.) Being smurfs are a children show, I imagine their blood is the same color as their skin, so if they're killed by accident filming the kids don't have to see blood everywhere. Therefore, I imagine they turn purple when you strangle them.
4.) Because you can't fly away and count all the stars!
5.) It's because it's the gesture of somebody else enragingly blowing a stream of air into it's eyeball that pisses it off. Also, dogs are playful when their around people they know, so they may not be pissed off, just a little over-energetic because somebody they know is "playing" with them.
6.) Because that's the way the number system works. 10, 11, and 12 are pronounced different than the numbers 12 through 19. That's why somebody is a "teenager" when they turn 13, and not a teenager when they turn 20.
7.) Because man allowed monkeys and apes to live and didn't start killing them for food, (possibly because they live in large groups that would be too difficult to overpower and kill).
8.) They don't. They place that yellow sign at the exit of a game trail where it crosses the road. Their fairly easy to spot.
9.) Well, that depends. Even when sliced bread was commercially available, many people (housewives) still cooked their own bread and sliced it when they needed to, to the desired thickness. They were still doing this when sliced cheese came out, which took off considerably more universally throughout the U.S., such that people were still putting sliced cheese on homemade bread. So, in some instances, sliced cheese would be the best thing before sliced bread, but it depends on the region.
10.) But people don't, and are lazy, so this question is entirely irrelevant.

Oh, I didn't know about the Russians. I did know about the Yucca Mtn. storage facility, but I also know that one decent earthquake could open it up like a tin can.

Evil isn't something that's created. It's like cold. Cold has no presence like heat does, heat is when something is full of energy, cold is the absence of that energy. It's the same way with good and evil. To be evil doesn't mean that you're full of evil, it means that you're absent of good. Evil is an absence of good.

I pretty much figure good and evil are just opinions.
I mean, compare how many people were killed by god in the bible, and how many were killed by satan in the bible.

Oh crap, here comes the religious argument.

I thought about that after I wrote it, actually. I decided not to change it just to see if anyone could catch something amiss.
Congrats Jack, you get a cookie :)
