    connecting magnatism and gravity....

    for those who have kept a close tab on my threads you will know that i think outside of the box...i dont thak newtons laws into consern....nor einstein...einstein once said that...something you need to look at something as....if it could be possable...thats not a direct quote.
    a magnet...all it is...is a rock...how could suck a thing have the power it does..the eath has a magnetic field..........what if the magnetic field..(magnatism) is gravity...." the act of magnatism on on aposing bodys creates gravity" ( i made it up)
    whos to say it isnt true!
    maybe we cant connect the two b/c they are one in the same..maybe everything has masnitism(gravity). just...the kinda rock a magnet is...it is able to harness it to a sertain extent......um..i dont know what else to say...im messed up...on life
    but if any one wants to debate his theory of mine reply to it and ill reply to the best of my knowledge...i love you all..
    ...im in a happy place

    I think we need a rule against posting altered.

    No. No, I don't.

    And did you ever consider that I don't like you because you post altered? Also, it makes you even harder to understand.

    Dear god, if you're going to tackle one of the biggest questions in modern science at least learn how write properly.

    You sound like someone who's age hasn't reached double digits yet.

    I'm missing something. What is "post altered?"

    Our Patron Saint of the Strange OP here apparently enjoys posting under the influence of certain cerimonial herbs. It's kind of getting old.

    It's a bit like driving. Friends shouldn't let friends post drunk or stoned. It's bad karma.

    If, by 'outside the box', you mean discarding the knowledge acquired by thousands of years of experimentation and evaluation, I would most certainly agree.

    Unfortunately, I know people older than my ancient 32 years who are much worse...sober.

    Your posting doesn't bother me. Your posting stoned is what I'm finding a bit boorish. Anyway, you do what you feel you have to and project the image you want to. I have no desire whatsoever to be your mother.

    Somehow the OP reminded me of the Dick Tracy comic strip back in the '60's. Chet Gould, the cartoonist, didn't understand the difference between magnetism and gravity either.

    Edit: And I forgot to add that Gillianrens's first reply about "posting altered" somehow brought (former) tomcats to mind.

    I have made the wise choice a few years ago to never post while being plastered. Afterwards when you re-read what made so much sense last night seems is plain gibberish. When you read it again you're saying to yourself: what was I thinking...

    Don't do drugs, Mmkay?

    1) You're somewhat coherent when you're sober. You aren't when you're stoned. It has nothing to do with your lazy spelling but your thought process.

    2) You're surrounded by engineers, mathematicians, rocket scientists, physicists and astronomers. Never make the mistake of thinking this sort of person is stupid or unperceptive. As for myself, I spend four years in a college dorm, was (briefly) in training to be a pharmacologist, and was engaged to marry a MJ user. *shrug* You were stoned and it showed.

    3) You said so in your very first post to this forum. Need I go through the trouble of quoting you?

    In any case, it would take a very special sort of lame to go around pretending to be stoned or drunk on an internet message board. I would think nobody in their right mind would want to publically admit to behaving like a particularly insecure middle-schooler (even if you happen to be an insecure middle-schooler.)

    One last thing: if that really is your game (or you're thinking of starting to play it), you need to re-read the rules very carefully if you intend to keep posting here, particularly the no-trolling rule.

    i want to see if there an apifany in my blunders...
    i will continue to post in this forum reguardless if im high or not.
    yes this is a game to me. i ask my little questions and who ever answers them. i state a comment and another adds-on to it. ofcourse this is a game.


    It has nothing to do with your lazy spelling but your thought process.
    yes...the thought process....and i will continues until the moderators or admin's deside to kick me out.

    did you check out the GLP forum Johnathan, you could knock ideas around there when your drunk or what ever and they wouldn't care less and then when you are sober post at this site with the ideas you had while drunk if they still seem like good ideas.

    google GLP forums


    although it has a bad reputation here it can be a good forum and there are some intelligent regulars there, it's fun at least.

    I used to start to write raving letters to the paper about evolution and creationists when I was drunk but they seemed rubbish the next day.

    I'm not a pot smoker, but I've listened to them. All those ideas people have when they're high that they think are so brilliant? They're not. They're dumb.

    Sort of like those brilliant ideas I get in the middle of the night when I'm half asleep. If I remember them when I wake up, they're uniformly ridiculous.

    Hmm, my experience is a little different from this ... sure many such are trite, but few are ridiculous.

    What I treasure are the few% that, upon further development, turn out to be really wonderful - clear, cut through the noise, identify the central issue, .. that sort of thing. For me, 'sleep on it' really does work, and surprisingly often.

    I am more like Nereid. I get some of my best ideas just before I fall asleep, or while I'm in the shower. And by best, I just don't me clever, I mean solving a problem for work. I've learned the hard way to get up and write them down, otherwise I usually don't remember them in the morning.

    Yeah, this happens to me from time to time as well. I write them down not so much 'cause I'll forget them (I usually don't), but because I can't get my brain to SHUT UP ABOUT IT so I can get back to sleep again.

    Every now and again, though, I get an idea that looks good on the surface but is absolutely baffling once I'm actually awake. Like the time I woke up at 4am after having had the most amazing dream: I'd figured out how to solve a major world problem! I was so proud of that as I woke up. My ex-so woke up as well, and we looked into each other's eyes. And with a smug look on my face, I blurted out the solution: "Tomato soup".

    Then it was gone. The moment of enlightenment was gone, and she just cracked up at the look of disappointed bafflement on my face.

    That's when people used to just stick the little "(sp?)" in, or these days, if they care about their readers, invoke their spell check program -- or even Google for "bisket".

    Did you mean: biscuit

    As far as thinking through something when half asleep, in the shower etc. Isaac Asimov had an idea about that. He told the story of getting stuck on a problem during his PHd thesis. He went out to the movies (one of the "Road" movies if I remember correctly) and came out of the movie with the solution. He thought that while concentrating on the problem, you were controlling your thoughts and you couldn't get your mind into the alternate paths required to solve the problem. Getting your concious mind off the problem, with light work, allowed the unconcious part to continue working on it, letting the mind go down those alternative pathways and getting to the solution. So sleep, the shower, movies (or in my case watching scenery go by while riding in a car) keeps the concious mind off the problem enough to let the unconcious part keep working on the problem, without conciously thinking about it. Newton and Einstein (along with several other scientists) got started on their largest ideas during a revery, where they weren't thinking about the problems and the ideas came to them.
