Explain

Thursday, March 31, 2011

This is also how bad it feels to run without an asthma inhaler when you need one badly, and the government will not give you health care for asthma. "What theory was Einstein trying to explain when he said, "When a man sits with a pretty girl for an hour, it seems like a minute, but let him sit on a hot stove for a minute, and it's longer than any hour"?

Your answer: Relativity

Einstein, one of the most influential scientists the world has ever produced, was born in 1879 and died in 1955. He contributed a vast amount of knowledge to many areas of physics, but is most associated with his General and Special Theories of Relativity. He made the above quote to his secretary when trying to explain the principle of relativity to her, and also used it in 1938 in the extract of a short scientific paper he wrote for the "Journal of Exothermic Science and Technology"."

P.S. I have medication NOW, but the fact that I was made to wait due to money suck rotten eggs.

  


City

Friday, March 18, 2011

This oddly prophetic trivia answer I got today was written BEFORE the quake in Japan this year. An irony is that I just re started playing Pokemon games with a Pokewalker this month. Pokemon means "pocket-monsters" which are a pocket sized anime cartoon version of the the popular comic book characters like Godzilla. Godzilla is a metaphor for the social and natural forces which destroy society in monstrous ways like earthquakes. Pokemon is also based on popular hobbies of bug and coin collecting. "Which earthquake-prone city, the host of the 1964 Olympic Games, lies near the 35th parallel, and has often been the victim of attacks by giant monsters in movies?

Your answer: Tokyo

Tokyo, the capital city of Japan, hosted the Summer Olympics in 1964. The city often experiences earthquakes and was devastated by the 1923 Great Kanto earthquake, which measured 7.9 on the Richter scale, and killed over 100,000 people. In Japanese monster movies, Tokyo has frequently been ruined by creatures such as Godzilla, Gamera, and Megalon."

Strange that something so HAPPY and cheerful would come from something so dark? It says something about the people's will to overcome darkness of the soul.

I am feeling better now that three days has past since my doctor visit. However, I am still sitting and reading most of the time. "Which of the following did Jules Verne not write?

Your answer: Oliver Twist

Jules Verne is known as the "Father of Science Fiction" along with H.G. Wells."

Cartoon

Wednesday, March 16, 2011

I knew Astro Boy was old, but not that it was the first anime cartoon in the U.S. 'Major Astro' was a childrens show originating from Wichita, Kansas. In the mid-1960s it aired the first anime syndicated for broadcast in the US. What was the anime?

Your answer: Astro Boy

'Major Astro' ran from 1960-1973 on KARD-TV. It moved to KSAS-TV in the late 80s and left the air in 1989. It starred Tom Leahy, Jr. as 'Major Astro', who introduced a selection of popular cartoons. The original set was a base station on another planet. The 1980s set was a space shuttle. Leahy died in 2010 at age 87. 'Astro Boy' was first broadcast in Japan in 1963. It portrays the futuristic adventures of a robot boy who was created to replace the inventor's dead son."

Hat

Tuesday, March 15, 2011

How the heck would rope make you look mean? "Edward Teach was an infamous pirate who thought his men to be ruthless whilst sailing the seven seas. What other name did Mr. Teach go by?

Your answer: Blackbeard

Blackbeard would stuff burning rope under his hat to make himself look more fearsome and he tied black ribbons onto the end of braids that he had put into his beard. Edward Teach, aka Blackbeard, was eventually killed in a fight with Lieutenant Robert Maynard of the Royal Navy when one of Maynard's men shot him as he was fighting with Maynard. Lieutenant Robert Maynard beheaded Blackbeard and hung the disembodied head from the bow of his ship as a warning to all other pirates."
