  • What good is NAFTA?

    NAFTA removed tariffs from lower wage markets. For example, the same product made in Canada, USA and Mexico, the wages would be the most expensive in Canada, and the cheapest in Mexico. This has seen good paying manufacturing and refining jobs leave Canada for USA or Mexico. If those tariffs were still in place, that would not have happened.

  • Why do people not wear swimwear when doing dry land training?

    When someone is doing dry land training for swimming, diving, water polo, or synchronized swimming, they tend to ear tshirt and shorts. However, one of the goals of dry land training is to familiarize yourself with movements you will be doing in the water/air while wearing swimwear. Is there a reason this is done that way?

  • Could an asteroid or other moving celestial body become another moon of the Earth?

    I was thinking that if an object roughly the same size or smaller were to pass close enough to Earth, but not hit the Earth, that Earth's gravity would cause the object to orbit the Earth. Is this possible? What would the parameters be for this to happen? What would happen on Earth when this occurs? (Tides, earthquakes, etc)

    As I understand, California is in a sever drought. Part of the problem is that the aquifer is drying up faster than it can be replenished. If a network of pipes and pumps fed water from the ocean into the basin, what would happen? Would the salt water from the ocean be filtered by the ground such that only fresh water would be in the aquifer? Would this cause the levels in Lake Mead to rise? I know that there is life living in the basin, would they end up dying, or would they be able to thrive in the new water being added? Would having water in the area cause the area's average temperature to lower? Would this be able to produce more fresh water than spending the same amount of money on Desalination plants?

    Ships displace water. Every object placed in water will displace that volume. There are thousands, if not millions of ships out there displacing enormous volumes of water. If all that volume was added up, would it lower the sea level by any real amount?
