    … Even more shocking, they discovered that L.A. HAS A SUBWAY!

    The K-9 madrileño must jump really hard to do those chest compretions. How does it even do the mouth-to-mouth thing?

    Is negative Kelvin more common than negative income tax?

    Since absolute zero, where all molecular motion stops, is 0 degrees Kelvin, there is no such thing as a negative Kelvin temperature.

    JanBic raises a good point.Can you please explain your claim about “negative Kelvin” better?Having studied a little bit of the topic “negative Kelvin” was quite new to me.

    I’d hate to get mouth to mouth from a dog. With the smell of the breath, I’d rather die.

    I always thought that if they dug deep enough they’d find seashells on the moon.

    “The dog can demonstrate CPR”, not “the dog can perform CPR”.

    JanBic is dealing in classical physics. you need to think in terms of quantum physics.

    After reading several articles about neg K temps, I have learned that this dicovery was made by scientists with the Max-Planck society in Munich. This discovery was made in a beer tent on the Oktoberfest grounds in Sep 2013, in the late evening or early morning hours. It is amazing the things you can discover after several liters of Löwenbrau. BTW beer prices this year will be €11.50 Cheers!

    Usually, I get a wonderful explanation of an off-the-wall BION factoid that is hard to swallow. Today is the exception. Lots of comments, most dispelling the claim, but none that explain where they come up with the assertion that a negative K temp is hotter than a positive one. Everything I’ve been able to find says it isn’t possible, since there is no such thing as a negative K temp…

    Somebody must be having a good laugh at Ripley’s. The concept of a “negative” Kelvin temperature is complete nonsense. If 0 degrees Kelvin is the absolute absence of energy in matter, how could there be less?

    OK. This is Ripley’s Believe it or Not. Negative Kelvin. I call Not.

    Maybe because it’s owed energy, as negative money is a loan?

    If the fish weren’t extinct, they’d know where to go to catch something.

    Take care and God bless.

    There isn’t supposed to be such as thing as negative Kelvin, we need quite a bit more context for that one.

    I read one I wanted to make some comments about. The Red Sox have sold out all the home tickets since 2003 so that’s why I haven’t been able to go to a game. That was a joke, but I wish I could go to a major league baseball game and try to get an autograph on a baseball. The nearest team away from me is the Marlins, and I wish I could go and watch them play when the Cubs are in town, but the Marlins are too far away.

    Take care and God bless.

    I knew a young lady many years ago, that if you criticized her clothes, makeup, etc., you could get a stare-attitude that went into way minus Kelvins!

    Negative Kelvin (or Rankin if you’re using Fahrenheit degrees) is only possible in Quantum Mechanics, where a great deal of the ‘standard’ laws of physics do not apply. Here is an article on the subject.
