Come here if you have something random or funny to say, but wouldn't make sense somewhere else.





I was abducted by aleins when I was 30, I don't know how I remember this as I am only 22.

It gives me chills all over and I can't stand it when a piece of tape sticks to my fingernail. Wow, that just gave me chills thinking about it.

How do I know that the color that I see as, and call red is actually the same color as the red everyone else sees. We always call it the same color, but how do we know that each other is actually seeing the same thing. Every color could be like this.

What the hell makes anyone so damn sure that dogs are colorblind. Unless you've ever been a dog, YOU DON"T KNOW!! I'm pretty sure one of my dogs can see color and one can't.

I've always been intrigued by the whole " If a tree falls in the forest and nobody is around to hear it, does it make a sound?" question. My personal opinion: NO. It makes a vibration but a vibration is only a sound if there is an ear around to hear it. otherwise, it's still just a vibration.

Hmm, I'm gonna have to disagree Hav, I agree 100% with wedgie on this one. It makes a vibration and that vibration is not a sound till it hits an eardrum. <img src='http://www.titanspot.com/Titan/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/003.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smt003' />

How about this one. Is Nothing white or black? According to experts, Black is the presence of all colors and white is the abscence of all color. Using this information, one would deduce that nothing is white. I disagree though. I don't think it's either. Seems to me that if it were white or black it would be something....not nothing. I don't think we have the ability to even imagine nothing.

It's hard for me to comprehend the size of the universe, I guess my mind just dosen't register somthing that is infinate. One guy made it even worse when he told me that if space came to an end at a giant brick wall, what would be on the other side of the wall.....................

Hmmm, Would a taping device be considered an eardrum?

A leaf is moved by vibration... A sound is a vibration... Therefore a leaf can receive a sound transmitted from a falling tree.



Another viewpoint is to remember that the signal is always transmitted, it just may not be received. But it was still sent (made)...



Furthermore, electronic instruments can pick up sound, so it isn't limited to an ear. Also, what about the animals in the vicinity? Now take that same tree and blow it up in outer space, and there will be no sound because sound waves require air to travel, and there is no air in the vacuum of outerspace.

I mean, where did time begin? Where will it end? If you believe in God and Creation, it is hard to imagine how God was before anything else. If you believe in the moronic big bang theory, what was there before the spec of dust exploded and created the universe? Somethings are just beyond our comprehension and we just can't live like that.
