I don't know if the following is real or not but, apparently the pentagon is recalling toilets because they are too strong and could flush a whole copy of the Koran

Here are more links:

Physics -
hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu...
(Great site that covers a large area of physics such as magnetism, light and vision, quantum, astro, and mechanics)
Chemistry -
www.webelements.com...
(Fun to click on the table and learn a thing or two about some of the everyday elements in our live)
chemistry.about.com...
www.chemistrycoach.com...
(The site appears to be down, it run by a highschool but I used it a few time)
Math - www.math.com...
Biology - ??? Sorry, that for next year.

If you want to go further I recommend the books:

General Chemistry by Linus Pauling - great book I used for my general chem class, goes a bit more in depth than my textbook but still good for the layman.

Spacetime Physics by John Wheeler and Edwin Teller I haven't read all but most of the material is well explained so you don't necessarily need to fully know the math to get some of the concepts

Making of the Atomic Bomb by Richard Rhodes - an overview of the production of the first atomic bombs and an intro to things nuclear

Something has bothered me for quite some time on these boards. Specifically, the Science board has been saturated with "theories" that someone came up with on the top of their head. Here is what you SHOULD DO:

#1. DO AT LEAST 2 GOOGLE SEARCHES!!!

Oh my gosh! It is so simple to look up a few keywords and see if there is ANY scientific evidence to support your idea. To know for sure, the site will probably be a ".gov" or from a credible science foundation or perhaps the research of a professor at a university. (Edit: Also, if sources are listed at the bottom, it is more likely to be credible.) A GEOCITIES WEBSITE PROBABLY DOESN'T COUNT!

#2. If you are serious about the idea, grab a book from the library (not in the NEW AGE section). Compare your idea with some of the basic ideas of someone else. You probably can't read formal mathematics or understand multi-dimensional physics, but you can read the introduction to the book and get an idea of what the book is trying to explain.

#3. Present THAT idea after at least one of the above two steps.


Don't talk about theories of time travel if you've never read any credible idea about WHAT time travel actually is. Many people at least read something by Stephen Hawkings, such as "A Brief History of Time". The book isn't that big and you can probably read a couple chapters (just the ones you are interested in) and have a good idea of what theories are out there. NOTE: if nothing makes sense, you probably shouldn't be putting forth YOUR idea of time travel. I mean, would you ever ask an ice fisherman escimo the rules of basketball?

I suppose if one trusts the ruling elite,then everything you just suggested would be legit. However, I suspect on a forum such as this...most do not trust the ruling elite.I for one certainly do not. Some of the biggest debacles and conspiracies that have ever occurred has dones so under what you would probably term "true" science.

If you want to raise your I.Q. at all instead of just generally knowing about a specific subject, then check out this site I found after quite a while of searching.

www.improve-iq.com... it is quite usefull, enjoy.

Oh yes, the most important is to become aware of yourself.

So become one of the ruling elite and decide if what you know has proven to be true or false. The solution seems simple to me... time consuming, but simple.

There may be herds of people at the bottom rung of society, but there is a popular quote, "There's always room at the top."

And "truth" is something that works, something that is real, and something that can make a difference. For those reasons, I fear marketing execs for the simple fact that they don't have to present you with proof before you want to believe that what they are selling is true. Everyone looks equal when they sit side-by-side on TV.

My major contribution to make:

sign up for the PhysOrg newsletter and in 2 weeks you'll be a vastly more intelligent and interesting person. I dunno if this is considered shilling for another website, but 1) it's not my website and 2) it fits this thread, so I'll drop the link anyways:

www.physorg.com...

All the most interesting science headlines in all disciplines delivered to your inbox, hard to beat that.
