Sometimes at night, my mind gets completely wild.
- Can you get cornered in a round room?
- What temperature is room temperature?
- Can a black hole suck in another black hole?
- Can you drown in the river of life?
- How can a life saver candy kill you?
- Will arguments bring you closer?
- Who invented houses?
- Do cells have feelings?
- Do plants have souls?
- How would Pinocchio's acting skills be?
- Will you live forever if you stop time?
- What will happen if the 2 most stubborn people in the world meet?
- Why am I thinking this at night?
So I'm not the only one who think of the most interesting things at night instead of day! o3o
Room temperature is generally agreed to be about 20 degrees celcius.
-Can you get cornered in a round room?
Technically yes. If enough people form a semi circle around you and you are pressed against a wall. Mathmatically, no.
-What temperature is room temperature?
Standered room temperture is 23 degrees celsius or 73.4 degrees Fahrenheit. But, if you want to look at it literally, it is subjugated to influctuations depending on your AC units. XD
-Can a black hole suck in another black hole?
Two colliding black holes send ripples through the space-time fabric of the Universe that are called gravitational waves. It is possible for two black holes to collide. Once they come so close that they cannot escape each other's gravity, they will merge to become one bigger black hole.
-Can you drown in the river of life?
The what? If you wish to compare life to a river then sure. When you di.e i guess you "drown"
-How can a life saver candy kill you?
Anythign could kill you so yes. You could choke.
-Will arguments bring you closer?
It depends on whether its a mean agrument or a debate.
-Who invented houses?
Depends on your definition of house. Animals have been usign shelters as nesting places since even before the planet existed. So, some timelord i guess. (heheh)
Do cells have feelings?
Depends on your definition of feelings. If the need to reporduce counts as a feeling then, yes.
Do plants have souls?
Again depends on your definition of soul. Plants eat, a breathe and reporduce liek us. Maybe, but so does fire. Does fire have a soul? Maybe, maybe not. What really IS a soul?
How would Pinocchio's acting skills be?
If his character goes against what he beleives then, his skill might not be bad, he might be a great actor, but his nose would be distracting.
Will you live forever if you stop time?
Time is relative.
What will happen if the 2 most stubborn people in the world meet?
Nothing would get done. Or they'd walk away from each other.
Why am I thinking this at night?
I hate math, sorry. Circles are the absolute worst. So I can't help you there.
Well, it's because the stars are so far away. They give off light, yes, and it's a lot of light, but since they're so far away they don't light up anything. If they were closer, they would light the night sky up, but we wouldn't like it that much!
Ooh, time! Well, I guess the best person to answer this would be the Doctor, but I'll give it my best shot! The present is the exact moment you are in right now, but it's over so quickly that by the time you start thinking "this is the present", it's alreday the past. The future doesn't exist, only in our imagination, so you can think about it, but not go there. Or in other words, Wibbly Wobbly Timey Wimey Stuff.
Infinity isn't a number, it's just a concept used to describe things that we can't understand. And 0 divided by 0 isn't actually infinity, you just can't divide 0 pencils between 0 people to get an infinite number of pencils per person. Um, I think. Again, I'm not Einstein. I don't know this stuff!
About the circle one: do you mean what is the angle at each "corner," like a square's is 90 degrees and an equilateral triangle's is 60 degrees? For a circle, this is its tangent line, which is 180 degrees. I can give you the whole mathematical reason if you want, but I figure you probably don't. It involves algebra mostly, and maybe a little bit of calculus. :/ If you actually want to know, I'd be happy to tell you though. I think math is fun, but that might just be because I may be a little odd.
Stars? Other people have put it more elegantly, but here's a simple analogy: Say you're in a large, dark room. Someone with a flashlight is standing right next to you, pointing it at you, so it's really bright. But if they move far, far away, suddenly the light from that flashlight seems pretty small, doesn't it? What seemed to light up so much when it was near you barely has any effect on the darkness when it moves far away. So it is with the stars at night.
I'm not even gonna touch that time stuff. I cannot even begin to build upon what others have said, so I will not even try.
The infinity one is more calculus. :( To answer simply: no? But also yes? It's complicated. I'll give you the math here since it is more directly related to the question, but if you want to ignore it go right ahead because I noticed that I went much further into it than I intended. :/
To start, we know that a number times another number is equal to one of those numbers divided by the inverse of the other, so for our infinity problem, we can rewrite it like this:
infinity * 0 = 0/(1/infinity)
We know that
1/infinity = 0, so
infinity * 0 = 0/0
And didn't we already say that 0/0 = infinity?
Of course, I could do it another way:
infinity * 0 = infinity/(1/0)
which, given that
1/0 = infinity,
infinity * 0 = infinity/infinity = 1
Okay, let's try another fraction method. If you have x = n/d, x*d = n, right? So we can use the equation we've already established as true,
infinity = 0/0
infinity * 0 = 0
Augh why is this happening????
Well, typically we don't just deal with the "numbers." (this is in quotes because infinity is more of a concept than a number.) We deal with equations that are going to 0 or infinity over time, and that's where things get wonky because certain equations go to zero/infinity faster than others and the 0/0 = infinity thing isn't necessarily right. If the top "zero" is going to reach zero faster than the bottom "zero," 0/0=0. If they're both going to zero at the same rate, 0/0 = 1. Only if the bottom "zero" is reaching zero faster than the top "zero" is 0/0 = infinity actually true. We figure this out by deriving both and taking their limits until eventually one of them turns into a constant that isn't 0 and we can figure out which one wins. :/
TL;DR: CALCULUS IS WONDERFULLY HORRIBLE.
And I am so sorry for that mess.
Gah, this is so complicated *gestures frantically* I don't understaaand XD
I never want to take math like this, I'd probably rip my hair out!
-If a circle has infinite points, what is the angle degree?
There is None?
-How can a night sky be dark when you have a bunch of stars lighting it?
PPl are weird. They care to describe the color of the night sky, but they use a lightning term rather than a color. It fits right up the with making your bed. It's pointless, your bed it going to get unmade again in the next few hours and then you have to make it again.
-If this is the present, wouldn't this be the past? If you answer this one, it is the future. So if you answered that would be the present, but would this question be the past? But this is the past, so what would be the present?
Exactly. Something Doctor Who never takes into consideration! Time travel is a paradox. Say I were to peer into the future and see that I was to raise my right hand in the air. What if instead I raised my left hand into the air? Shouldnt I of seen myself with my left hand in the air? In that case, I would of raised my right hand.
also, time is again relative. Throw a clock in a black hole, it stops ticking. There is no such thing as present. It comes down to the milisecond. And even past that. For me, the present becomes the past before the present happens.
-If 0 divided by 0 make infinity, would a product of infinity and 0 is 0?
Infinity is forever but, any number x 0 iis 0. So yes. Infinity x 0 is 0.
Well, I think DW does talk about this on occasion, I think Waters of Mars is probably the biggest example I can think of. I'm pretty sure the DW explanation for that scenario is either 'the universe will implode' or 'either time or the Doctor will have to fix it'.
