Question: anyone knows a good website that have beautiful drawing/animated widescreen(16-9) scenery wallpapers? An anime scenery wallpaper is good too, but most wallpapers i found have anime characters as focus.

I used to use those from hoshinova. But after buy this wide screen monitor (Love it ^^) those wallpapers were either stretched or not full screens =/

We're a lot taller than our ancestors. Better, more abundant food, I guess. I've read that the Japanese have also been growing taller ever since they started using chairs instead of kneeling so much.


So, yeah. Genetics play a role, but so does how you live while you're young.

Also, genetics aren't that straightforward, what with recessive and dominant genes and all. Just because your parents are short doesn't mean you will be, too. It just makes it likely.

Genetics are a blueprint. You still need the materials and the labor to actually build the house. In this case that would be eating enough food (and the right kinds of food) and treating your body correctly (enough exercise, rest, etc). Genetics are actually more complicated than that, but I think the analogy works. Also, you're not a clone of your parents, you're a mixture of your parents in a very complicated and indirect way. So there's no guarantee of anything.

also, in America, growth hormones are/were used for farmers to get more meat per cow. So people tend to grow taller and stronger at that.

Okay, thank you very much! That's really helpful, I appreciate it.

Imagine you're on a space ship or space station, without a suit on. You're suddenly ejected into space. You'll be rescued shortly, so you're not 100% guaranteed to die, but what's your best bet? Empty your lungs and risk anoxia, or hold your breath and risk the expansion of air in your lungs to damage them? Or will vacuum kill you before either of these is an issue?

Nevermind, just looked it up. Breathe out, since you're going to faint from lack of oxygen anyway and might as well spare your lungs the damage). Eyes will start boiling (although probably not explode, just dry out very quickly). Bubbles will form in the blood in the extremities, apparently leading to heart failure in about 2 minutes at most. Oddly enough, preventable by wearing tight clothing.

me and my friends had a stupid discussion as to why arent there nuclear powered spaceships by now? seeing how nuclear power can produce a great amount of energy we thought that the spaceships will have much greater speed...

nuclear fission seems to be the only answer, judging by your link. but it doesnt really matter which...

nuclear fission powered spaceship = "steam powered spaceship" (unless I'm mistaken)

Do you see the problem.

You can't just turn "power" into "thrust" in space. Most modern transport technology is based on "spinning" (to push on the ground, air, water, whatever), which quite simply doesn't work in space. "Pushing" is the easiest way to get motion in space, and we accomplish that by burning rocket fuel.

That said, there have been proposals made about accelerating a spaceship by detonating nuclear bombs behind it. Not sure how far that line of thought has actually been developed and funded though.

Ion power (streams of ions fired out the buttside) can generate large amounts of velocity efficiently over time... but there's the key: over time. You're using lots of tiny molecules to push a large mass so the acceleration is going to be damned tiny.

The NERVA program and the ORION program are interesting little tidbits to read on nuclear power propulsion.

But yay, for steampunk
