    I guess Sharon thinks h'is still bigger, no matter what Bush claims about his (or is it "him"? Not native enlish speaker, ya know...). I mean, he is big, Sharon, isn't he?

    You read it on your Treo?...
    Sure, why not? It is very comfortable, highly recommended. BrightCam is very useful to have brightness adjusted optimally while reading, but you need BrightCam anyway.

    Problems to read the font? How old did you say you are? I have heard too much can ruin eyesight...

    Besides, you can always adjust font size, make it bold, whatever. Maybe you like it bold?

    I have heard that some women prefer to look beautiful than appear intelligent, apparently because some men are better at looking than at thinking. That has nothing to do with me of course.
    I dunno, Tulip. Somehow reading a whole book on the Treo doesn’t sound too delicious.
    Why not give it a try? Sometimes new experiences are surprisingly delicious!
    Oh, I like tart better than bold….
    ?? Tart like in plump tart?

    How are my favorite people on TC doing?
    Say, Jalapeno (JP) and Tuilpos (clue), how's Europe after a new sheriff (pope) arrived in town?

    The feelilngs are not well. Lucky I left that club long ago.

    Of course the Vatican also forgot to get the internet sites for the most likely new pope names. www.benedictXVI.com, www.benediktXVI.de etc. are already taken by outsiders.

    So for next time, they will have to deal with the owners of the sites for Clement XV, Innocent XIV, Leo XIV, Paul VII, Pius XIII etc. earlier.

    I can just see chickie as a high priestess - it even mentions the mets
    Time to download the lasted Godcast onto the iPod...

    Didn't somebody once mention something about iPod earphone quality? I have to buy new earphones, and I was told the extra ones for the iPod are not really good (only expensive). I could buy another brand, but they don't have white earphones, and I fear I might look a bit less cool without white ones... - What to do?

    OK you chess players, I have installed OpenChess on my Treo now, an Open Source (free) chess program. I feel ready to take up the challenge now, you against me and my Treo!

    Public birth as art? Yuk. I guess everything is art as long as you
    (a) can make somebody else believe it is art
    (b) make him/her pay for it based on that belief.

    Mine doesn't have one, certaily not one worth noting...

    But OpenChess seems to play at around 1700 ELO points. Is that good or bad?

    The height of an object that has been fired upward from the ground is found by using the formula below, where 'h' is the height in feet, 't' is the time in seconds since the object was fired, and 'v0' is the initial velocity with which it was fired, in feet per second:
    h = v0t - 16t2
    A model rocket is fired upward at an initial velocity of 192 feet per second. After how many seconds is the rocket at a height of 432 feet above the ground?
    Extra: What is the maximum height that the rocket reaches on its flight?
    OK, lets see...

    h = v0t - 16t2 is a quadratic equation, there is a formula for that and a quadratic equation solver here.

    With h = 432 feet and v0 = 192 feet per second we get h = 432 = 192t - 16t2, or
    -16 t2 + 192t - 432 = 0

    For the quadratic equation (and the solver) we take a = -16, b = 192, and c = -432.

    Solving the equation (using the solver) gives two possible t's, t1 = 3 seconds and t2 = 9 seconds (the rocket flies up at t=3 seconds and is on the way down at t=9 seconds).

    The maximum hight must be reached in between the two times (3 and 9 seconds) at t=6 seconds. The first equation then gives
    h = 192*6 - 16*6^2 = 576 feet.
    (you can actually just copy/paste the formula 192*6 - 16*6^2 into google and you get the answer - Google is cool! )

    HOWEVER: There is NO way a model rocket can fly according to the formula h = v0t - 16t2. Model rockets are propelled on their way up (against gravity) until the "fuel" goes out, then they are slowed down by gravity until they reach maximum height, and fall back down following gravity alone. So the way up is totally different from the way down... it must be a trick question!

    I doubt I know anybody personally who really does bother about such people! We got rid of kings and queens 700 years ago, and the pope has seen better time, too.

    Right now there is quite a funny story going on. A priest in a small village in Switzerland is so openly anti-bishop and anti-pope that the bishop revoked his "license" to preach (called Missio Canonica) and wanted to have him sacked by the parish. But the people in his parish voted unanimously to keep the priest because he is very popular (in Switzerland even the Catholic church is at least semi-democratic). So the bishop has a real problem now...

    Currently flowering in the Royal Botanic Garden in Kew, GB:



    The flower is called Amorphophallus titanium - strange name, isn't it? It is the largest inflorescence in the world, more than six feet/two meters tall, smelling like rotting meat.

    Cool, thanks for the post. The story of Our Lady of the Underpass (aka "water stain") even has a cell phone link :

    "Here," said a woman in a black White Sox jacket. "Look."
    She grabbed me by the arm as I joined the crowd in the dusky noontime light of the concrete underpass, cars and trucks vrooming alongside and right above our heads. She held a cell phone high.
    What was with the cell phones? Dozens were being held aloft like candles in a vigil, the eyes of the enraptured tilted toward a constellation of midget screens.
    "You can see it clearer on the cellular," said the woman, Carmen Lopez, 38, who was on her third visit to the miracle."
    (Source)

    I'm not sure why, but it looks a lot just like another stain on the wall to me... interesting pictures, specially No. 2 which shows the stain.

    You mean no prizes TODAY, in contrast to all the other days when we actually got prizes? I have to admit though, the one bikini I got was REALLY nice!
