• Complex Excel question - simulating a football season?

    I'm building a spreadsheet to simulate all the fixtures in a football season, and I've successfully done it for one iteration. Is there a way I can make it run a large number of times (say 100,000) and print the results of each iteration to give me meaningful results? Many thanks.

  • Is the phrase ‘¿Cómo de importante es...? considered gramatically correct in Spain?

    By which I mean 'How important is...?' I've seen the phrase written but wondered if it was a more Latin American phrase and if there was a more accurate of phrasing it. Thanks in advance for any help!

  • What does "Si el fútbol es viejo, el racismo le gana por goleada" mean?

    I'm having trouble interpreting this. "If football is old, racism wins by.." An explanation from a native Spanish speaker would be much appreciated!

  • Aren't rebuy tournaments just stupid?

    I accidentally bought into one just now. It seems crazy to have a game where success is just dependent on how much money you're willing to throw at it. Don't you think people should always start on equal footing? Right at the start there are people with 6x my chips. Rant over.

One more thing, when saying Pienso que... would any following conjugated verbs be in the subjunctive form? Thanks :)

  • What is the range of masses a star can have and be similar to the sun?

    So, stars with half our sun's mass are red dwarfs, and stars 10 times our sun's mass are blue supergiants. Would a star 5 times its mass have similar properties to our sun? Would its use of the CNO cycle rather than the PP chain to fuse hydrogen have an influence on its eventual fate? It's just that brown dwarfs and red dwarfs etc seem... show more
    So, stars with half our sun's mass are red dwarfs, and stars 10 times our sun's mass are blue supergiants. Would a star 5 times its mass have similar properties to our sun? Would its use of the CNO cycle rather than the PP chain to fuse hydrogen have an influence on its eventual fate? It's just that brown dwarfs and red dwarfs etc seem to be neatly compartmentalised into certain masses and given certain properties, but what is the general category for stars like our sun, those which become red giants but never supernovae? If anyone could link me to an article or something that addresses this, it would also be very much appreciated :)

  • Do red dwarfs eventually become white dwarfs?

    According to this image: http://www.siprep.org/faculty/aokeefe/im... ..a red dwarf will eventually degenerate into a white dwarf once it no longer has hydrogen left to fuse, but when I read about white dwarfs from various sources it always seems to imply that white dwarfs come only from red giants. Can anyone please clarify this for me?

When it's bad, my car actually just dies everytime I try to pull away. Often it's absolutely fine but it's scary when your car just dies on a budy junction and there's nothing you can do about it. Does anyone know what the problem could be?

  • Why is it acceptable for car insurance companies to only insure women or people of a certain age, but not..?

    ..only insure white people, or black people. I know they base it on statistics and all, but even if statistics showed that people of a certain race crashed more I very much doubt a company be allowed to not insure them. Just a thought.

  • Is there something wrong with my calculation?

    Let's say you have a plastic cylinder closed off at either end. It is 10cm long and has a radius of 1.5cm. Is its volume therefore 10 * (pi * 1.5^2)cm^3? Since this equals 70.7, and water has a density of 1g/cm^3 should this not mean that the cylinder could weigh anything up to 70.7 grams before it would sink? I ask because I did an... show more

  • Do heavier objects that float take longer to reach their maximum depth?

    Does it make sense that a lighter weight will drop to its maximum depth before floating back to the surface more quickly than a heavier object of the same volume?
