Re: Scioly Fantasy Football 2011

Yeah I've played fantasy for the last like 3-4 years, so I'm sure I can put in the time.

Re: Robot Arm C

I think its safe to say that more than 6-8 teams will be capable of perfect runs, but there is so much room for slight human error in this event that a good number of potentially perfect robots will score 91s because they mess up the pencil on the edge or mismanage their time slightly. 6-8 sounds r...

On a sounds test at our regional, we had "if a tree falls in a forest and no one hears it, does it make a sound?". Still not sure if we got it right, its a rather debatable topic. The tree falling clearly causes vibrations in the air, but then you get into the whole debate of whether something exist...

Re: Fermi Questions Marathon

very early on Angstrom asked a question that no one answered: "How much energy is lost to sound in a flight from NY to LA?", and at the time I had no idea how to answer it and it had been bugging me for a while, but in studying for sounds I found the amount of sound energy in watts released by certa...

Re: Fermi Questions Marathon

so the surface area of the earth is E14 square meters, each single egg will probably produce a pancake that is a circle with a radius around 10 cm, so 3E-2 square meters, so you will need 3E16 eggs so 16. Then the population of Michigan is probably around 10 million, definitely E7. Each standard siz...
