You know what`s fake?
I did that experiment. AND IT WORKS.
I have perfectly balanced spoons.
My next plan?
Aling the gravitons in my penis.
By having sex in a feris wheel for EIGHT years without stopping.
I do think that there are enough common scientific misconceptions / misunderstandings without this guy making it worse
@LOLBERAL: No affiance dude but don`t you have something better to do than argue with a bunch of teenage fools?
@Teenage Fools: Don`t you have anything better to do than argue with a grown man, who probably has gone through a complete education and probably teaches a class of some sort.
I really don`t see why this is such a big deal, The author of the site can post what ever he wants and he even said it was bs.
Why have I started ref-ing this, I don`t know. It is the weekend I am going back to school on Monday...
"There are 10 types of people in this world, those who understand binary and those who don`t"
...fact, right. If you want to learn more, I`d suggest you take a physics class. You could just research relativity, as well, but were you to you wouldn`t get the broader picture. Most places do offer introductory physics classes so you should be able to find one near you. I don`t see how I am a "smartass" as you`d claimed either. I apologize if I`d came off that way I suppose. When a bunch of persons brand each other a "retard," back and forth, while holding two mutually exclusive views obviously one of them isn`t going to look informed at the end of it all, so that`s why it`s generally a bad idea to do so. Instead, it`s much better an idea to love each other. If you`re really within the 30-39 age bracket it`s kind of surprising to me you haven`t yet found out pointless insults are unwise, but I`m not passing judgment on you.
^ why centrifugal force is not a force.
^ why gravity is not a force.
While it`s great you disagree with Albert Einstein and all, and while you`ve every right to, you kind of come off as insecure and as if you`ve some sort of an inferiority complex when you tell me that I am a smartass and to commit suicide because I`m defending the views of somebody who is, in
BS for sure.And I agree with RyanF701, "Just because they`re not proven to exist yet doesn`t mean they dont exist.."Otherwise we would have all been floating around untill gravity was proven.
Although I agree with your premise, gravity hasn`t been proven either.
Yes, that`s actually exactly what I was saying. I wasn`t trying to disprove the notion the disproof of gravitons is highly improbable, but rather that proving a negative is impossible.
The elephant example stands regardless of the ubiquity of elephants. The fact that elephants have indeed been proven to exist disproves the nonexistence of elephants and thus disproves a negative; I was more trying to get across that concept by contrast to the concept elephants do not exist. You could just do a "replace" in your favorite word processor of the "elephant" string with "woolly mammoth" if you`d like, but that was not the point.
For the record I agree nobody will ever disprove gravitrons.
The problem arises because no-one really knows what a graviton looks like. Let`s not forget we`re still trying to prove it`s existence; would we know it if we found it?
Some negatives can be proved, I`ll give you that. For example, cubic spheres do not exist. But an elephant is a bad example because everyone knows what an elephant is and everyone would know they`ve found an elephant if they happen to find one.
Would you know a graviton when you saw it?
The fact remains that while it`s possible to prove some negatives, I don`t believe it`s possible to disprove the existence of gravitons. The presumption would have to be that they just haven`t been found yet.
You could however draw the conclusion gilb is vain, or that gilb has an inferiority complex; generally retardation however follows only from conceit and/or vanity as a non sequitur. gilb seems to be to me an intelligent enough person.
...invalidatead by the proof of a singular "one x," to whatever standards you may hold "proof," for the standards to which proof is held are the standards that determine as their corollary those to which any invalidation is held.
@Guy6870: I`d assume that wasn`t directed towards me, since I`d actually defended the author of the site from gilb what with the "Gauss" capitonym and the claim made with regards to it; presuming what you`d said was directed towards gilb I don`t think gilb is "seriously retarded" for sharing knowledge with forum members who don`t possess the knowledge in question. Certainly there was a bit of "showing off" on gilb`s part, for to show off implies that you`re insinuating your superiority to a party or parties, and he`d indeed called Serena retarded (the implication being by comparison to him), but I don`t think this makes him retarded.
However, the statement "elephants do not exist" is a much more difficult positive to state with surety, for no demarcations exist, and the statement covers the breadth of the entire universe. Thereby, what would have to be covered under our ambit of observation would be the entire universe, for a lack of demarcation is synonymous with a demarcation of everything or infinity. If this were possible, and no elephants were sighted, we could indeed prove elephants` nonexistence, but since the ambit of our observation is insular by comparison to an ambit of the entire universe as it is limited to what we`ve empirically witnessed, we can`t, for without the knowledge the authority with which the claim is made is not genuine. The knowledge is absent; thus is the authority. There of course could be an elephant existing; were one sighted, then the initial claim of the elephants` nonexistence would be invalidated, for an "all not x" claim is invalida
So it`s either that this guy has read the theory of quantum gravitation and is seriously retarded or knows it`s bollocks and wrote it because he wants to laugh at people who attach spoons on their car wheels
reb0rn4never: just... walk away
Everyone else, look at the information for teachers. It`s a noble cause :D And sadly, true.
The website is a joke.
Click on the "Letter to Teachers" link.
Yeah, that sucked
The magnet is considerably strong. The reason why the spoon doesn`t tip over is because the magnet`s pull is centered on the bottom of the spoon. My biology instructor passed around some small (about the size of a watch battery) magnets that had considerable pull to them. Notice how the surface the spoon is being pulled on is thin (it wobbles) enough for the magnet to pull things through.
All in all the whole website is bullsh*t. I`d love to see Mythbusters debunk his stuff, but then Serena would succeed in his goal (wasting other people`s time).
You`re right, you cannot plugg in an electrical deice such as a leafblower in backwards.
I was never good at chemistry or physics.
Oh and, gravitons may not have been proven to exist, but that doesn`t mean they don`t. Theoretically speaking, it`s impossible to prove something doesn`t exist.
I tried this and it did not work. I even drove for 700 miles. This is clearly another lie.
"The site is a statement on the sorry state of critical thinking in our culture."
Amen to that!
Click on the "Information for teachers" link.
Funny site though, I hope that guy in the comments didn`t really drive 700 miles, but that was just a joke.
A bit too much effort to make a spoon wobble around imo
