Re: The portal question - Finally answered by a physicist

The disparity of speed between the entrance (orange) portal and the exit (blue) portal is your unbalanced force.

Re: The portal question - Finally answered by a physicist

Imagine the original scenario with the orange portal falling over the stationary block, then reverse it, having the block falling into the orange portal.

Re: The portal question - Finally answered by a physicist

Re: The portal question - Finally answered by a physicist

You're fixated on the floor alone as a reference point. Consider that the more relevant reference points in this exercise are you and the 2 dimensional plain that is the event horizon of the magic...

Re: The portal question - Finally answered by a physicist

But in this case the front and back of the magic doorway are moving at two different speeds.

You are standing still on the floor. The front of the magic doorway is moving towards you across the...

Re: The portal question - Finally answered by a physicist

Then the portal won't be able to take off because it won't achieve adequate airspeed.

Re: The portal question - Finally answered by a physicist

The orange portal is not at rest in relation to the box, therefore the box is not at rest in relation to the orange portal. The blue portal is merely the other side of the orange portal, so the box...

Re: The portal question - Finally answered by a physicist

Yep, the relative velocity will be preserved.

Unless you're using portals like those in the Expanse novels, then the "speed limit effect" might lead to A.

Re: Have you picked up hitchhikers?

I've done both. Nothing to tell really, very polite folks of both the ride giving and ride receiving varieties. I'm male, huge, and carry so my experiences may not be typical.

Re: Murder on my street overnight

Indeed, the protocols are there to minimize the kind of crap sloppy policework used to lead to. Checklists and supervisors and paperwork oh my. Thank you for your professionalism Jim.

Re: Justin Bieber Challenges Tom Cruise to MMA Fight.

I think Tom has a little too much class to be seen in the same room as that Bieber kid, but if he actually accepted the challenge he'd approach it with the same full steam professionalism he applies...

Re: Who Pays for a Teenager's First Car?

I saved up and my mother and grandparents matched funds so I could get a safe and reliable used car (a cherry 1977 V6 Pinto Wagon). Within a year I upgraded to a nicer ride ('72 Chevelle). I still...

Re: When did you start grunting while sitting/bending down?

By the way, do any of you whip back in and do two or three ninja edits on most posts to fix spelling or polish wording, and also as a nostalgic salute to THEEK?

Re: When did you start grunting while sitting/bending down?

I started doing it around 1989 or so after a ski trip where I took a pretty nasty fall and borked both knees. To this day when I squat down or get back up (or just go down stairs on a bad day) I make...

Re: Amazon sells fake memory cards

" Ships from and sold by Amazon.com. "

But according to my research one common occurrence is a scammer orders the knife, pulls the real one out and inserts the fake one, then returns for a refund....

Re: Amazon sells fake memory cards

Amazon's not safe for sure. I got burned on a fancy lock-blade knife. Ordered it, carried it, used it for weeks. Thought the steel wasn't quite as tough as advertised. Bought and tried to install a...

Re: 2016 One and Only Abortion Thread

^This.

I don't know what Draven was thinking with that vasectomy prattle. Everyone knows that the only birth control method pro-lifers really support is abstinence.

Re: Stag and Hens party - what did you do?

I've been to a few as well as my own. All involved drinking too much and throwing cash at strippers. It's a stereotypical tradition that should probably die. As for mine, I would have preferred a...
