    Hi everyone,

    I'd like to see how many silly, unanswerable, laughable questions we can make in this thread.

    This one as a start, and example:

    What is the velocity of darkness?

    tongue

    Come on!!!

      moposanposted 9 years agoin reply to this

      velocity of darkness = velocity of light. Darkness decreases with the speed of light increase .They are interconnected.

      Oh, dear. Does it have to make any sense???

      If a chicken-and-a-half could lay an egg-and-a-half in a day-and-a-half, how long would it take a grasshopper with a wooden leg to kick all the seeds out of a dill pickle???

      That's my best shot.

      sensible answer : -300000000 m/s < darkness moves in opposite direction to light velocity vector >
      simple

      The speed at which light would actually leave. Approx. 3x10^8 m/s

      If your talking about the speed of going dark, it is going as fast as the sun is going down.  Anyone have a velocity of the sunset?

    1. moposan profile image48
      moposanposted 9 years agoin reply to this

      The guy who made a study and gave the answer got alternative Nobel prize.

      "Thick bony skull with relatively spongy bone, especially at the occiput, and cartilage at the base of the mandible to partially cushion the incessant blows. Inside the skull, there is almost no cerebrospinal fluid in a very small subarachnoid space. The mandibles are attached to the skull by powerful muscles that contract a millisecond before strike, creating a tight, but cushioned structure at the moment of impact and distributing the force of the impact to the base and posterior aspects of the skull, thus bypassing the brain. The neurological mechanisms must be superb since these birds strike in a perfect perpendicular stroke to eliminate the torsional shear force that would otherwise tear the meninges or cause concussions .. Additionally, the woodpecker is protected, at least to some extent, by its size. Its brain is relatively small, resulting in a small ratio of brain weight to brain surface area. Any impact force would be spread out over a relatively large area making its brain somewhat more resistant to concussion than a human’s brain"
