    We’ll, isn’t it obvious that the spine as well as other bones as well as the organs are visible through the transparent skin of an x-ray fish?

    Not quite— what Galileo proved is that objects of different weights fall at the same speed (usually using spheres). On earth, a feather does fall slower than a hammer (try it!) not because of weight difference, but because of air resistance. The feather catches the air as it tumbles down, a hammer doesn’t. But on the moon, there isn’t enough air for the feather to catch, making them fall at the same rate.

    In high school physics, we saw that done with a penny and a feather in a glass tube from which the air had been removed with a vacuum pump. Turn the tube over, and the penny and the feather fell at the same speed.

    3588 Tim Hortons in Canada, I don’t think Finland has a chance.

    That coffee comparison has got to be wrong. Ave American drinks about three and a half cups a day.

    I know I do. Straight black coffee from the drip coffee maker. None of that fru-fru stuff they sell for 7-12 bucks a cup.

    And I drink one cup, so that averages to 2.5 cups.

    Are you one of those people that believe the lunar landing was fake and pro wrestling is real?

    No, he’s saying that Tom Hanks and other “Apollo 13” film actors didn’t go to the moon.

    Much of it was indeed filmed in space.

    Actually, the hammer DOES “catch the air”, it just doesn’t REACT quite the same. I know, nit picky….

    Something interesting is to put some real gold flakes (not gold leaf, but small nuggets) in a vial of water and flip it upside down.

    It’s almost impossible to tell there’s water in the vial (if you manage to get the air bubble out). Gold is so dense, that it falls to the bottom so fast, you’d think it was just air and no water. Very interesting to watch (once or twice)
