i don't wanna hurt nobody. that's uncivilized. I'm thinking if I appear to be a sasqhatch nobody is going to engage me. wonder if it will work on door to door solicitors too.

(answers door ) "WHAT!!!!!!!!"

(solicitor) " um.... never mind wrong door!"


Are you saying that if gang members attacked you and you had the means of protecting yourself, that you would not use it so as to not hurt them?

uh... i study kali and silat. I'm not adverse to physically exerting my will on anyone. but like miyagi say violence always last option.

besides make scary ray can work in all sorts of awkward social situations.

You'd be better off doing the "ninja vanish" routine and just disappear with your invisibility suit. That would suit Miyagi's pacifist inclinations, plus we are closer to actually having such technology than the scary giant hologram thingie. But the military probably won't let you have their best prototypes.

How Invisibility Cloaks Work

Admit it. You'd love to own an invisibility cloak. Utter an embarrassing faux pas at a party? Just throw on your magical garment and vanish from the snooty gaze of your fellow partygoers.

hey I got a new question.

let's say hypothetically I'm on a severe budget and the only food available is a few uncooked hotdogs in an open package left at room temperature for a day or two.

what would be better to "treat" the hotdogs with so that they'll be safe to eat?

direct heat from a frying pan or flame or the microwave set on popcorn?


all this is just hypothetically speaking of course..... .......but I kinda need an answer by dinner time tonight.

i have a question regarding a spacial anomaly I fall victim to.

why is it that when tucked in shirt buttons never seem to align with belt buckle or pants zipper?

totally a possibility.

but considering most Americans have one in one form or another shouldn't shirts be made to accommodate the most likely demographic that will be purchasing them.


don't get me started on slim cut Euro shirts.

Not really physics but I happen to know a little about food safety so I'll answer anyway. You need certain conditions of time and temperature to kill bacteria. The higher the temperature, the less time. For example:

www.yourdoctorsorders.com...

For beef, the FDA states that it is safe when kept at a temperature of 130°F for 112 minutes or 140°F for twelve minutes.
You probably can't get a hot dog to the boiling point of water right away in a microwave, because the impurities in the water lower the boiling point, so figure until the water evaporates it will be a certain amount below 100C depending on the type of hot dog, since the extra heat energy will be boiled off as the water turns to steam.

Eventually you could boil off all the water and then you'd start to get something like the jerky dragonridr talked about.



Myth: You want to kill all those bugs!

Reality: No, let’s not. First, it is probably impossible to do that. Second, the longer you cook something or the higher temperature you cook it, the more the heat will affect the flavor of the food. There are no guarantees that overcooking food will make it safe, or that undercooking food puts you in danger
Of course that's talking about properly stored food, not hot dogs left at room temperature, but the nitrates in them limit the growth of botulism, which probably makes them less dangerous to eat after being exposed to conditions that would have made foods with less preservatives dangerous, though the nitrates themselves may have their own hazards.

Ironically you can get organic hot dogs without added "nitrates" on the ingredient list, but you find "celery powder" as an ingredient instead. Why is that ironic? Because the celery powder may contain more nitrates than the regular (not labeled organic) hot dogs.

blog.fooducate.com...

Organic and Natural meat producers realize that consumers hate nitrites and avoid products that use them as ingredients. Instead these manufacturers employ celery powder. Unfortunately, the nitrites in celery powder are the same as the ones that are artificially added. In some cases, the amount of nitrite from natural sources may be higher than the amount from artificial sources.


So, you might have to worry more about colon cancer than food poisoning if you eat a lot of hot dogs:

www.cancer.org...!-headlines-can-be-deceiving.aspx

Just how much of a concern are these processed meats in terms of cancer risk? A number of studies have suggested that people who eat even a relatively small amount of them over many years can increase the risk of colorectal cancer. In a study our American Cancer Society researchers published in the Journal of the American Medical Association a few years ago, high consumption of processed meat over 10 years was associated with a 50 percent increased risk in cancer of the lower colon and rectum. High consumption was defined as 1 oz. per day, 5-6 times per week for men, and 1 oz. per day, 2-3 days per week for women. (To give you a frame of reference, the typical bun length hot dog is about 2 oz.; 2 slices of cooked bacon are about an ounce).

thank you for the extremely detailed info regarding my hypothetical situation.

so, .... let's say I " hypothetically " just microwaved these hotdogs and consumed them. due to the nitrates I'll live till tomorrow?

.... ..... "hypothetically"....




sweet!

There are no guarantees but I'd say the odds are strongly in your favor, hypothetically of course.
It also helps to have a good immune system. The food safety standards may be a little overprotective sometimes to accommodate people who don't.

Well with such a broad question hard to know where to start. So ill give a broad answer, because it has to. The standard model required it, there is no reason particles should have different masses.

n the Standard Model, it is established that “all matter around us is made of elementary particles…that occur in two basic types called quarks & leptons.These elementary particles are controlled by four fundamental forces: the strong force, the weak force, the electromagnetic force, and the gravitational force. These forces are the result of force-carrying particles, which are categorized under a broader group called “bosons.” each boson controls transfers a force, example photons transfer electromagnetic force.According to the Standard Model, it is impossible for matter to simply naturally have mass. Instead, particles gain mass by getting slowed down while passing through a field called the Higgs field.

Now the fun part we can manipulate electromagnetic fields.. Can we do the same with the higgs field? Can we manipulate mass and what could that lead to.

Opisit of gravity would be no gravity.


no.. no gravity is the start point for gravity
0.......1....2....3...4

there is no -1


Can't have a starting point if it's not there. That's like going to a horse race without a horse. Not much is going to happen but a lot of disappointed spectators.


HA !

the thing is, ZERO does not exist in physical world only in mathematical world.
Then... something to be absent, it must exist in the first place.
Otherwise there is an infinite of absent things, forces and whatever you can think of...
BUT ! it needs YOU to define the absence. Without you and the IMAGINATION of something being absent, it does not exist.

Opposite of gravity is called anti-gravity.
No gravity is just nothing, NOT the opposite

I think you mean virtual photons. However photons themselves do exist we can measure them and we can track them that makes them very real.


NO!, you don't measure any photons.
You compare electric forces in the machines you've build and calculate the difference in potential energy.
Then you say... " a photon "

If you get reincarnated as a frog, you'll be able to see individual photons, but then when you finally can see the individual photons for yourself, you won't be able to say "Eureka, now I understand!", just "ribbit".

What Can Frogs See That We Can't?


So are you going to persist in your misunderstanding of physics just because you don't have frogs eyes? Yes the human eye is incapable of seeing individual photons, that doesn't mean they don't exist, and we can build machines to detect them but they're bigger than a frog's eye so the frog is a remarkable feat of nature's engineering.

Actually the Hubble can see something like what's described in the above video when viewing distant stars. It sees pulses of light from extremely distant stars, not just dimmer and dimmer light as you would expect if your "photons don't exist" idea was true.

This experiment also detects individual photons but their signal has to be amplified, so you still can't see individual photons, well sort of but not exactly since you're still not a frog. You can see where they impacted but they've been amplified to make their locations visible to humans:
