I've actually always been in the "liking spicy food is a form of masochism" school of thought but a recent experience changed my mind about that. I usually order "medium" spiciness when given the option, in order to not look like too much of a wimp, but few weeks ago I decided to order "low medium" at an Indian restaurant, ignoring the funny look the waiter gave me. And lo and behold, the food was less spicy, but also rather bland in terms of taste. It just ended up being uninteresting to eat.

So anyway, I've changed my evaluation of spiciness as a form of masochism into a necessary evil. The spiciness is an unfortunate side effect of the taste of the spices. Too much spiciness when you're not adapted to it overwhelms the taste, but too little spiciness removes taste as well. It's all about finding the limit of tolerable spiciness and staying there.

That said, I prefer saltiness. I like to salt things a lot, and most people seem to think I'm crazy.

Question: Is there an equation to calculate: how high the water will splash if you drop an object onto water?

I know it depend on water density, area in contact, object density, force causes....etc.... but don't know the exact equation

This is probably a stupid question but why do people catch a cold when they got drenched in the rain. A cold is a viral condition while getting drenched is a physical condition. Does the immunity system drop when people are exposed to low temperatures?

Some examples included getting your feet wet, touching someone else's mucus, leaving the window open at night... all sorts of things. All of those are observations of what can lead to a person coming down with a cold, but all of them simply facilitate the disease state - none of them are directly the cause. I'd imagine that's the case with the two examples you've listed, as well (that is, bathing itself doesn't do anything but frequently lowering your body temperature might, and bathing at night has the potential to do that).

I think I've heard somewhere that the body temperature weakening your immune system thing is a myth with no empirical evidence. It's pretty much made up by people who understand diseases but try to rationalize the folklore reasons for colds.

I haven't actually studied it, but assuming that people actually do statistically get more colds after being drenched or leaving the window open (you can't just assume that, although so many separate cultures associate colds with well, coldness, that it seems reasonable that it might be true), I would guess that it has to do with increased exposure. Your hands get wet and you touch doorknobs and such that have also been touched by people who got their hands wet. Presumably it's easier for virii to move in liquids (although maybe not). Leaving the window open causes air to circulate more, including air with virii. These are just guesses though.

Wearing your energy levels down through extremes and stress can increase your odds of getting sick because your immune system is compromised. That's about the ONLY connection to most of the folklore stuff.
Colds are viral critters... there are many varieties and they mutate fast. Most immune systems don't adapt fast enough to ward them all off. Second... many people mistake allergic reactions for cold symptoms. Mold and pollen can deliver symptoms that are easy to mistake for a cold.

Wash your hands with soap and dry them. Amazingly simple avoidance technique and amazingly ill-practiced.

High-Vision is the equivalent of "High-Definiton Television" (aka HDTV):

Quote:
"High-vision" is the popular name of the high-definition TV broadcasting (HDTV) that has been promoted with Japan Broadcasting Corporation (NHK) at the forefront of HDTV development. At first, although it originally referred to HDTV by analog technology (which began experimental broadcasting in 1989), "high-vision" today is widely used and includes digital HDTV. High-resolution pictures (formed by scanning 1125 lines) on a horizontally-wide screen (i.e., a horizontal-to-vertical ratio of 16:9) is a characteristic of high-vision TV.
~from this site
If you see the HV logo on some anime episode, that means that same episode was broadcasted in High-Definition

Can anyone tell me when the live-action Legend Of Zelda movie is going to be released over here in the UK? I saw the trailer for it on YouTube the other day and think it looks really good and totally wanna see it! ;D

I know there are a couple of fanvids that pretend to be trailers, but this would be the first I'd heard of a live-action Zelda movie.

And it's too early! Can't we confine pranks to one day?

Additionaly (if you talk of the trailer I think) it's english, so... noe =P

Is there a link to said trailer?

I remember a similar thing coming out for April Fool's a while back. It was a fake trailer for a live-action Zelda movie created by IGN. It was very well done and they even released a 'making of' video later to show how they put the trailer together. For the amount of work they put into it it was very easy to think it was for an actual movie.

Something I've been wondering about Korean manhwa recently. Many of the male characters are difficult to distinguish from females, while in Japanese manga it is usually very easy to tell the difference between the genders. Is there any specific reason why the genders look so similar in Korean stories?
