Why was I born in 1987 in the body and consciousness I was born in instead of being born in 1927 or 2018 or 2050? how do you get to become the body and conscious you are? were we actually our father's sperm cell and when that sperm met the... show more

  • What does it mean if I hear Yanny and Laurel at the same time?

    Best answer: It means you have good objective hearing but perhaps your brain's tendency to classify sensory input into discrete objects is not so strong (for hearing anyway).

  • What are all of these temperatures?

    Best answer: Rankine is like Kelvin because absolute zero is 0 on the Rankine scale, but each degree in Rankine is a degree Fahrenheit, not Celsius as in Kelvin. The Delisle scale has 0 degrees for the boiling point of water and 150 degrees for the freezing point of water. The Newton scale has 0 degrees for freezing water and... show more
    Best answer: Rankine is like Kelvin because absolute zero is 0 on the Rankine scale, but each degree in Rankine is a degree Fahrenheit, not Celsius as in Kelvin.

    The Delisle scale has 0 degrees for the boiling point of water and 150 degrees for the freezing point of water.

    The Newton scale has 0 degrees for freezing water and 33 degrees for boiling water.

    The Reaumur scale has 0 degrees for freezing water and 80 degrees for boiling water.

    Romer scale has 7.5 degrees for freezing water and 60 degrees for boiling water.

    The Gas Mark is a temperature scale used on gas ovens and cookers in Great Britain, Ireland and some Commonwealth of Nations countries.

    Detailed explanations are readily available in Wikipedia. All but the Gas Mark are purely historical.

    You have no use for any of them, so leave them alone.

  • SCIENCE is becoming so religious, it rather tickles me because I love both?

    Twice today I saw this guy, and he is not religious “It was not possible to formulate the laws of quantum mechanics in a fully consistent way without reference to consciousness.” – Eugene Wigner, theoretical physicist and mathematician

  • Lions don't eat other carnivores.discuss!?

    Best answer: Generally, none. The meat of carnivores tastes unpleasant, which is one of the reasons why most carnivores hunt herbivores rather than other carnivores.

    Best answer: Generally, none. The meat of carnivores tastes unpleasant, which is one of the reasons why most carnivores hunt herbivores rather than other carnivores. If it is hungry enough, a lion will of course eat anything it can, including other carnivores, but they do not form a part of their diet under normal circumstances. They will certainly kill other carnivores such as hyenas, leopards and cheetahs, but do not usually eat them - they kill them to reduce the competition for prey, not for food.

    When new male lions take over a pride, they will kill any young cubs of the previous males, and may eat them. They kill the cubs because the average tenure of males with a pride is between two and three years, and it takes a lioness around two years to raise cubs to maturity - she will not mate again until this time. New males can therefore not afford to wait for a lioness to finish raising their predecessors' young before fathering any of their own. By killing the cubs, they bring the lionesses back into breeding condition and can have cubs of their own.

    If a lioness's cubs are stillborn, or are killed by disease or another animal, she may eat them. She will lick them at first, as though trying to rouse them, but when the cubs don't 'wake up', it seems to turn into a predatory response (lions often lick their prey before beginning to feed). This may be a way of recycling the nutrients she lost nurturing them.

  • Where should I publish my research report?

    Best answer: If you were well enough informed on whatever mystery field you didn't bother to tell us your "research" is in to have anything of worth or value to contribute, then you wouldn't need to ask this. So don't worry about it.

  • How can a theory of science e.g. Newton's law of universal gravitation, be both true and untrue?

    Best answer: His law is true, but he knew it only applied in certain contexts. He was smart and was well aware no law is universal until universally proven within that particular system.
