Why does Superman stop bullets with his chest, but ducks when you throw a revolver at him?

Whose idea was it to put an "S" in the word "lisp"?
tongue.gif

From www.etymonline.com: late O.E. awlyspian, from wlisp (adj.) "lisping," probably of imitative origin (cf. M.Du., O.H.G. lispen, Dan. læspe, Swed. läspa). The noun is first attested 1625.

Johnson NJ, Backlund E, Sorlie PD, Loveless CA: Marital status and mortality: The National Longitudinal Mortality Study. Ann Epidemiol 2000;10:224-238.

1. For both middle-aged males and females, non-married groups showed significantly increased mortality risk compared to corresponding married groups.
2. Older age groups did not show as strong relationsships between married and non-married groups as their younger counterparts.
3. For cardiovascular disease, statistically significant risks near 1.3 were shown for widowed and never-married white males ages 45-64 and for white females of the same age group statistically significant risks of around 1.55 were observed.
4. For all cancers and other causes, not cardiovascular, high risks were shown for all non-married groups compared to the married groups.

DanT: THAT is somebody who:

1. Is being a smartass (only joking here)
tongue.gif

2. Has way too much time on his/her hands.

However, I will agree that many of the questions in my opinion were not very stellar, and kind of just play on words.

PS: I was once told that the idea of "sleep like a baby" came from the fact that most children spend the first 2-3 days of their lives sleeping 2/3 of every 24 hour period.

If its 0 degrees Kelvin, nothing can be colder. If its Celsius or Fahrenheit, it can get much, much colder.

yes. Same reason as why you throw something at someone on the bus when the bus is going 75mph. It will still hit the person in front rather than suspend in the air, even if you drop it, it won't go flying back to the back of the bus.


As for the OP, funny stuff, thou i've seen most of them before.

As I understand relitivity.. no. A vehicle cannot travel at the speed of light, thus the entire situation is absurd. However if you were traveling at just about the speed of light, let's say 99.99999...% and flicked on your headlights, they would function completely normally. the light from them would still zoom away from you at a staggering 3*10^8 m/s. to the "stationarly" observer though, you and the light would be going just about the same speed with the light slowly pulling out in front.
