    you can have a triangle with 2x 90 degree angles on a spherical surface. It`s called elucidean geometry.

    By definition, a triangle is a geometric shape whose angles add up to 180 degrees. Anything with more than that is not a triangle.

    Wikipedia: "The internal angles in planar triangles always sum to 180°... a spherical triangle has measures of angles that sum to more than 180°." Do "spherical" triangles count? We`d have to do some heavy assuming.

    And no, turbotong is not right:
    "you can have a triangle with 2x 90 degree angles on a spherical surface. It`s called elucidean geometry."

    Perhaps that he meant with *non-euclidian* geometry, triangles with up to *3* 90 degree angles can be formed. However, usually when someone says "triangle" they are referring to planar geometry. Otherwise, I could technically make a "triangle" with more than 360 degrees using wormholes.

    Technically, unless you define "triangle" you could make a triangle have up to 520 degrees (180 + 180 + 180) just by giving it a bogus definition. Example: "Let`s say that using curved lines on a sphere counts as a triangle as long as only 3 curved lines are drawn!" Well, I could take my own 3D shape and use a bunch of curvy lines to achieve a 520 triangle as long as I define the triangle to be a closed circuit of 3 squigly lines.

    By definition, a triangle is a geometric shape with 3 sides and 3 angles, the angles just happen to add to 180 degrees in all triangles

    Maybe you mean with **non-euclidEan** geometry RPGillespie.

    Another note, Triangles are not defined by the sum of their angles that is just a property in euclidean space. Triangles are polygons with three vertices and three line segment edges.

    I thought roosterroaches could survive radiation.

    They can survive quite a bit more than humans, but there are many other animals more resistant than roosterroaches. Any degree of radiation exposure that roosterroaches survive would also be survived by other animals.

    But this statement was about a nuclear *winter*, not radiation exposure. Many small animals would survive that.

    The asparagus is not true. Only 22% people can smell asparagus pee, but everyone gets it. Israeli study.

    Link.

    Now, as for which one is the truth... this is actually pretty tough... without looking it up, I`m going to go with...

    Definitely not:
    Gum, Kenya, roosterroaches aren`t the *only* thing, Mayan 2012, Nigerian prince, Jesus, Pregnant, Mad cow, Duck echo, Munchkin, roulette, Spiders, Popcorn, Cherry Tree, equinox egg, Asparagus pee, Rubiks, skull shape, cellphone + gas,
    China axis (93BKg vs 6E+24Kg)

    Possibly:
    Triangle Angle sewems like the only one left.... (Kinda tricksy using non-euclidean geometry)

    Only if the phone is very faulty and creates a spark and even then only if the concentration of petrol vapour in the air is within the right range. So it might happen if you have spilled petrol in a confined space and the phone battery shorts out very badly or explodes. But only then.

    Baal, one of the glorious things about using metric (Kg in your case) is that multiplying by 1000 is easy. 93BKg, for example
    Kilo x1000=
    Mega x1000=
    Giga x1000=
    Tera, so 93"BKg" is really 93Tg.

    Almost all of those can be ruled out by common sense. Those that remain depend on knowledge of a specific fact or a person`s opinion.

    Its the right angle triangle one, but it has to be on a sphere. Draw a right angle, extend one of the lines for a while then draw a line at right angles to it. Extend both ends and because of the curvature of the sphere they`ll meet at a point. Hey presto triangle with two right angles.

    One of the "lies" is true. A triangle can have not just two but three right angles; not in euclidean geometry, but that is one of an infinite variety of geometric sets. On a spherical surface a triangle connecting one point with another through a 90-degree arc and a third through a 90-degree arc at 90-degrees to that arc will have three right angles. To see this take a globe and join the north pole with the equator twice, once down the Prime (Greenwich) Meridian and once down the 90-degree-east meridian. Join the two together along the equator, and you have a triangle with three right angles.

    "Until then you can`t say it`s a lie or the truth because there is no proof either way."

    Valid birth certificate produced.

    You`ll find that the argument has moved on from 2 years ago. You see 2 years ago was
    "where`s the birth certificate?"
    The answer to which was "here".
    "We don`t believe you, that`s a forgery"
    ".... seriously... that`s what you`re going with?"
    "Wait! We found his Kenyan birth certificate! We found 2!"
    "That`s a photoshop of an australian birth certificate... you haven`t even changed all the names... wait... you found 2 and didn`t think something was up?"
    "Wait wait... erm, we need the LONG FORM birth certificate! Ha!"

    If you need any more catchup, here`s a good starting point.

    @Baal
    since you argue on the birthers I`m submitting facts against Obama. I`m from Hawaii. His hospital can`t produce anyone to testify, nor do they have any official records of his birth there. Not even a bill for services. The Governor Neal Abercrombie who was adamant about his birth in Hawaii investigated and found no evidence. he even recanted to the press that his seeing him as a baby was false. he did not see him until he was 6 years old. The Congressional Research service which is a branch of Congress to verify eligibility to run for Federal office. They have stated in writing no one has submitted Obamas documents of eligibility.

    Fourth the Hawaii Elections Chairman Tim Adams has signed an official affidavit that Obama has not presented an Official Birth certificate. He`s a Democrat and so is Abercrombie and both supported Obama.

    They only reason Obama is considered a local boy here is because he lived with his grandmother in Hawaii until he finished

    Those are verified indisputable facts. Shoots brah the cuz no can da kine da pidgin. He`s full of it. Technically he`s not legal until he produces the original BC. Now why can`t he. His grandmother who Obama lived with growing up in school. She was a vice president for Bank of Hawaii and knew the importance of keeping records. You can bet Obama know the importance of keeping records.

    Alright you f u c k i n g idiots. Its the duck`s echo. End of story. A triangle with 2 right angles is impossible. A triangle needs 180 degrees, and three angles. But it is completely confirmed that a ducks quack cannot echo for whatever reason. Stop arguing about it. Call me drating Google, because I know drating everything.

    @Logan033, you call other people idiots and yet you fail to realise all sound can make an echo. Duck`s can echo, they proved it on mythbusters. Have you ever gone to a pond and yelled out? Did it echo? Of course not, there`s nothing to bounce the sound off. And even if there was, you are yelling. Compare to the volume of a duck quack. It`s too quiet to occur in nature unless the duck is near a confined space. So STFU about stuff you know nothing about.

    Actually, if you really wanted to get into it, you could say that the triangle has two 90° angles and one 0° angle. At that point, you`ve got a degenerate triangle, but I suppose you could argue that it`s still a triangle.

    roosterroach... This filter is plain drating dumb.
    Come, come now belunan. The swear filter, as retarded as it is, is something we inherited from the earliest days of IAB a decade ago and is so deeply embedded in the code that it`s not going to change anytime soon.

    Just learn to laugh frivolously when the swear filter kicks in and accept it as one of the little idiosyncracies of our site.

    Imagine you`re a airline pilot flying over the Japanese nuclear reactor at dratushima. From your aircraft`s roosterpit, it looks like the only creatures that might survive the poostorm are roosterroaches. You`re confident that things will improve, but you don`t want to get roostery.

    Your co-pilot then cracks a dry joke to relieve the tension, which causes you to sI am a racist!. You respond in equally dry wit by telling him that he`s an non-nice individual, and that you kindly invite him to I am a pretty little girl.

    It`s been more than 15 years since AOL made the ridiculously incompetent use of censorship public news because of the number of people affected by their particular implementation of it. I`d provide links to details, but IAB won`t allow them because it`s worse than AOL in the mid 90s.

    Embedding and concealing it in the code to such an extent that it`s not even possible to incomptently censor in an honest way by replacing users` text with the word `censored` or even with asterisks? That`s strange.

    well a roosterroach can survive a nuclear winter but im unsure if its the only creature that can.

    It isn`t. Some animals would move nearer the equator where it would be as warm as they were used to. Other animals would be able to tolerate colder conditions. The reduction in food supply would reduce the population of all animals, but there would be survivors in many species.

    im guessing the roosterroach one is true.

    Wrong guess.

    It`s the roaches that are true. They survive just about anything, including radioactive contaminataion.

    Anything a dratIABroach can survive can be survived by some other animals.

    The statement was not about radioactive contamination. It was about a global reduction in average surface temperature caused by the insulating effect of dust in the atmosphere.

    If you do more advanced math, you get a more complex answer which allows for triangles with a total of more than 180 degrees. Non-Euclidean geometry. Euclid was brilliant, but he didn`t cover every possibility.

    I didn`t think about it until after I saw it mentioned. I`ve looked at non-Euclidean geometry a bit, but it`s not something most people get reminded of in daily life.

    The Mayan calendar does not end on that date. One cycle of one of the Mayan calendars ends on that date(*). Different thing entirely.

    In any case, it can`t mean anything to anyone who isn`t a follower of the ancient Mayan religion because that Mayan calender counts days and has a starting day solely based on that religion. It`s the same thing as someone saying that a certain date is going to be incredibly important because it`s x days since the birth of Zeus.




    * Probably. There is some disagreement.

    Yes, Rubic`s Cubes have lots of individual permutations. 6 sides, 6 colors, 9 options per side. That gets over 500,000 before assessing the the color. 3 billion plus, not a problem.

    I saw a show about some gamblers who noted that roulette wheels are never balanced right. They would collect data a wheel for 3 days and then bet on the side of the wheel that wins more often. They won so much money they have been banned from Casinos worldwide. The show was called "Breaking Vegas" even though they also broke casinos in other cities as well as Las Vegas. So I guess the roulette wheel is true.

    The Obama one is inconclusive so I guess that was included as a flame war item.

    Actually more than one is true depending on the situation. You can get a triangle with two 90 degree angles in non-Euclidean geometry (such as on a sphere). Also, only 22% of people have the genes necessary to smell the chemicals that cause the urine of asparagus eaters to smell strange, but it is actually there in everyone who eats asparagus.

    Is that sarcasm or not? It`s honestly hard to tell sometimes on the internet. Anyway, it`s a simple word substitution filter that could probably be turned off in less than 5 minutes if one was so inclined. That`s not the kind of thing that would be "deeply embedded" in code.

    I don`t really care either way. When I first started reading this site though, I thought it really odd how everybody used the word "drating" all the time. I was like WTF is drating? Until I figured it out.

    Also because it`s possibly true, Obama claims to have his certificate in a vault, but won`t show it. As @Handy mentioned, the Governer of Hawaii searched for it, in hospital and gov`t records, couldn`t find it. And no, it`s wasn`t "we have it but privacy blah blah" it was: we cannot find ANY record of BHO`s Hawaiian birth... except a newspaper clipping, lolz!

    Oh, and fyi there aren`t as many combinations on a rubic`s cube as you think. The middle pieces of each face are always the same relative to each other. Corners can only replace corners, middle edge pieces can only replace middle edge pieces, and it happens in pairs/triplets of specific combinations, resulting in far fewer possibilities than you would think.

    handys003 responds:
    Um...not a fact on c*ckroaches surviving alone. This is hypothetical assertion, and not put in practical application. No one has replicated a nuclear winter yet to see what results would occur. The Ice age proves that animals survive through evolution.

    The bare fact alone that many creatures have survived the nuclear testing in the 50`s and 60`s on the atolls (Marshall islands) of the South Pacific. You will find coral, fish, reptiles, insects, and various crabs, etc... roam the islands and their waters. Many of which such as the trees, and plants that bare fruit exist, and grow abundant also. The only problem is they are loaded with with radioactive elements from the soil and toxic to eat. These creatures survive actual replicated nuclear blasts repeated times. That is a fact.

    I`m going to let you all in on a secret. I discovered it during boring captivity after being kidnapped by aliens (who the UK secret permanent ruling conspiracy is working with) by using numerology on the OED, they key to which can be deciphered by folding a £20 note in the right way. So it`s obviously completely true.

    Barack Obama is English. It`s the first step in retaking the USA from within. You see, the aliens first came to Earth in London during the late 17th century and wish to remodel Earth to be more like how they first knew it.

    Totally true, every word.

    you`re retarded ... just because there`s no proof doesn`t change the fact that he was (or was not) born in Kenya ... this is not the Schrödinger Cat

    A duck`s quack echoes. If you think Obama was born in Africa, that`s cool, because he still runs your country, so suck it.
