    Everyone knows that you have to square the coefficient of modulus to obtain the cosine of the radii before you can figure it out...

    Well, assuming that you account for wind resistance and stopping for snacks and factoring pee breaks you are looking at something like 6 or 8 hours...

    I think I lost an IQ point just watching that.

    That's the product of the public education system.

    If the speed of light in a vacuum is 299,792,458 meters per second, the refractive index of pure ice is 1.309 and power requirements increase as to the cube of velocity in atmosphere, how many bags you gonna score selling Watthefuqua's WIC card?

    The first sign of retardation is hair growing between the fingers.... The second sign is looking for it!

    This is what a junk food, music, media and entertainment culture has created, people who have sunk down to the level of unreasoning animals where what matters is money, sex, food, the next buzz from drugs or alcohol and sleep.

    We mock these simpletons on the 80 mile per hr. question, yet there are still those here that think cave dwellers with box cutters took down 3 towers in New York city on 9/11. Now, thats funny.......

    I was just calculating the foot/pounds of energy (FPE) from velocity and weight of airgun pellets .... I must be a frickin genius.

    But then again, there are folks here that think Steven Jones is a scientist ....

    they offer it. few take it. those that do take it are in the college prep courses (similar to regular courses of yesteryear)

    combine the school with the internet with the parents with the libraries = NO EXCUSES that can be blamed on anyone else

    I guess its an individuals choice on whether to think for one's self or let others think for you. History repeats, unfortunately.....

    It's a trick question just like everybody knows a pound of bricks weighs more than a pound of feathers.

    I like to twist that on the kids that know the answer -- asking which one is bigger (feathers much bigger!)

    C'mon; you all know it wasn't a fair question. It all depends on the mode of transportation - 80 mph by air is much faster than 80 mph on the ground. Give these guys a break. What I'd really like to see is their calculation of how much dirt remains in a hole that's 6 feet deep by 3 feet across.

    If you're sitting on your front porch all day sipping on a 40 and smoking blunts, you're never gonna get to 80 miles an hour anyway.
