• Why do people still buy DVDs even though they aren't even in HD?

    DVDs are in 720 x 480, they aren't hd. HD DVD failed and Blu-Ray is king yet DVDs still haven't been discontinued. Are people really so cheap that they'll buy standard definition movies just because they're cheaper. The bitrate is only 6-8mbps and the new 4k format gets bitrate in the 50s and 60s.

  • A 500-kg shipboard cannon fires a 30-kg ball at 60 m/s. The cannon s resulting recoil speed across the deck is regarded as excessive.?

    How much inertia (in the form of sandbags, say) must be added to the cannon if its recoil speed must be reduced to 2.0 m/s?

  • Apple TV question?

    I've noticed when using my apple tv that sometimes the 4K HDR symbol in the movie info page are in white and other times it's in black for different titles and was wondering if there's any difference or reason why

    I m just going to write a list of what I support/believe in and ask why a lot, NOT ALL, conservatives or right-wingers seem to disagree: - I believe marijuana should be legal recreationally and medicinally to help cancer patients and those with depression, anxierty, ptsd, etc - I believe you have the right to love whoever you want regardless of sex, gender, gender/identity, etc - I support the 2nd amendment, but you can be a supporter of the 2nd AND gun control. I don t see anything unconstitutional about background checks or banning certain types per amendment 9. - We are the only 1st world country without government run healthcare. Healthcare should be a right, not a privilege, and no one should be turned down from treatment because they can t afford it. I m perfectly okay with using my tax money to help the less fortunate. - Same with education. I would like my taxes to be used towards reducing the cost of tuition so education isn t a privilege as well. - I believe people with the same experience and degree doing the same job should get paid the same regardless of sex, gender, sexual orientation, or race. - I support the Roe v Wade ruling on abortion. A woman has a right to choose freely during the 1st trimester, with restrictions the further you go. - Undocumented immigrants should be granted a path to citizenship. - The rich should pay their fair share and shouldn t get unnecessary tax breaks/cuts. That s just a few. Why do conservatives disagree here?

  • Infinity War Question [SPOILERS]?

    [SPOILERS] After Thanos did the snap, do you think everyone who dissolved was really sucked into Soul World, and since Gamora was sacrificed for the stone do you think she became embedded in it. I know the possessor of the stone can interact with those in soul world. Do you think that's where Thanos went after when he talked to child Gamora again? show more

  • Will the years unusually large amount of regular season upsets, like, cancel out March madness (lol)?

    I'm speaking theoretically of course, I don't think it will. By cancel out I mean that usually the favorites win in the regular season (most of the time) with some upsets here and there, but this season has been off the charts with upsets and no clear favorites along the top 15. Analytically will it "cancel" out March madness

  • LeBron James is highly overrated. Agree or disagree?

    What has James even done to earn the title of "The King?" He left Cleveland in dramatic fashion, forming a modern superteam in Miami where he cheated his way to 2 rings.

    What has James even done to earn the title of "The King?" He left Cleveland in dramatic fashion, forming a modern superteam in Miami where he cheated his way to 2 rings. He makes the finals every year and always loses. If Green didn't get suspended for game 5, he'd still have 2 rings. He's done absolutely nothing in the NBA to change the game. He's just a big dude who can get to the basket and score a lot and make some pretty passes. But he's proven in Cleveland that he's a team killer. Their superstar point guard didn't wanna play for him and Kevin Love is apparently hated by everyone. He acts like he's the coach AND the gm. He's a cry baby in games and a big drama queen. And he's gonna leave Cleveland again and cheat his way to more rings. He can't even put up more than 60 wins in a terrible eastern conference on that team. He's completely overrated and there should be an asterick next to every ring he has or may get. He's nothing compared to Wilt, Jubbar, Hakeem, Russel, Bird, Magic and/or Jordan, etc. The younger generation of today probably don't even know any of those names except Jordan and Magic

  • I have roommates who blast the heat even though it's always hot outside, and obviously inside?

    The average daily temp here is around 75ish right now, which isn't too hot but hot enough that blasting the heat is totally uncomfortable. I prefer it at 68-69, especially when I'm sleeping as that's the ideal temp to sleep in. My roommates are blasting it in the mid to upper 70s. Every time I turn it the cool setting even just at 72... show more

Every time I turn it the cool setting even just at 72 they throw a ***** fit. I'm tried talking to them about it. I've suggested buying a personal heater. Also, they're already wearing tons of layers so I can't suggest that, I'll be 80 and they were jeans and a jacket, not kidding. I seriously don't know what to do. They won't even make an attempt to compensate with me.
