Hold onto your phlogiston, everybody!

History of Science #18: The New Chemistry.



Interesting, though I'm not much into chemistry. Next episode should be even more interesting for me: Biology before Darwin. One of the topics will be, "Can entire species go extinct?" A fascinating topic that I've always wanted to hear more about. Can't wait!

If you like, yes. Gord is good enough to put these links on here so that everyone can enjoy what he has enjoyed. You're simply miffed because there's nothing about astral projection and walking through walls. I do seem to remember that you posted numerous yawningly boring links to Sethian mumbo jumbo.

Is there anything wrong with asking tough scientific questions about such videos?
Or is it better to just crucify the claims at every opportunity.

My parents taught me to respect opinions I may not agree with. Countering claims is allowed, but the name-calling gives this forum a foul odor for me.

I'll pay more attention when the channeling matches up with true predictions.

For me the fun is in looking at the evidence and weighing it. Once I've done that, I have no problem calling it what it is, but I don't feel comfortable with bullying someone who has an opinion I may disagree with. The end doesn't justify the means in my view.

All of this shallow gossip gets no one anywhere but another re run of Peyton Place which eggs still watches every night on his shell wall. As it cannot walk or talk or even develop properly some movies are shined backwards onto the shell lining. Comforting I hope for someone without a mind. We are talking about thermometers but we cannot check his temperature due to lack of openings in the shell, though no doubt if this could be done it would be close to a sexual experience for the poor disabled egg.

Maybe he's lost? This thread is about the History of Science videos on Youtube.

I guess I could try posting these too: Beyond Science. They're not as fitting, though. Too flashy.

I looked up "heat and temperature" in Swahili. Turns out to be "joto na joto". Now, call me a bit of a nigglepuss if you like, but that's how any speaker of Swahili as a first language would translate the phrase "heat and temperature" so that same Swahili speaker would, naturally, wonder WTF VFX was talking about. I often do when in my Swahili mode.

I guess it's his/her overheated head. S/he talked about it elsewhere. Bad parenting, no doubt.
