    Man if you think you were dumb two years ago you either were not dumb then at all, or you're still dumb now.

    Umm, people can learn and change a lot in two years. Like my conversion from libertarianism when I was in high school was literally over night. I was pretty fucking dumb then.

    Well a teenager, sure. But isn't Mike in his 20's?

    So? My great-uncle voted Republican for years, and was going to vote for McCain this election, till he was around while I watched Obama's speech at the '04 convention for kicks. Now he's going to the polls for Barack.

    That's a change in perspective, not intelligence.

    Res, I object to your irritating, overly semantics driven, literal arguments. The spirit of Mike's statement was clearly that his "perspective" has changed in ways that he believes indicate a more reasoned, rational approach to certain aspects of life. Calling that getting smarter, or less dumb, is not unreasonable. I find your disagreement to be an insipid attempt to foster controversy for no apparent reason, and I demand satisfaction.

    Mexican food is ENTIRELY different.

    You've probably never had authentic Mexican food. Chat had this discussion the other night. Most "Mexican" food has been Americanized a lot.

    man I love living in the bronx

    I just took the gf out for some delicious burritos and guac and it cost $18.

    Amazing.
    Damn you Podly and your cheap ethnic food.

    Honestly NYC is probably the cheapest city in America to eat if you know where to go.
    You are smoking crack, Zimmydoom.

    $18 for burritos and guacomole is fucking ridiculous. You pay $6 for a burrito and it's so big that it doesn't fit on a goddamn plate. $9 is an outrageous price to have to pay for Mexican food.

    And man, every time I tried Mexican food on the East Coast, it fucking sucked goat balls.

    Mexican food is expensive in the northeast. Do you live here? Do you have counterexamples to dispute my claim?
    So, we're now calling the Northeast "America?"

    I didn't specify Mexican food. I said "to eat." There are many things "to eat" in NYC, like the Asian noodles I mentioned. $3 for a giant meal in Manhattan is pretty insane by itself, to say nothing of relative to the cost of living.

    I will explode you.

    Tex-Mex doesn't claim to be Mexican food, despite what some idiots call it. That in mind, it still tastes wonderful. Of course, I love all the Hispanic variations. Tex-Mex, Northern Mexican with the fresh tortilla, Southern with the Mole, Cuban and Jamaican with all that delicious jerked everything, the wide varieties of Paella... It's all good.

    I just said a few posts ago that I lived in Guadalajara for a few weeks building schools, AAAAAAND I live in a Mexican neighborhood.


    Also, NYC is great for Thai food. You can get some of the most delicious food in the city for like $6.

    Also, let's say I'm traveling at light speed away from a single source of light (In the same direction as the light). If I throw something out infront of me, let's say a tennis ball, does the tennis ball disappear?

    If you were somehow traveling at light speed, you would not be traveling through time.

    But interestingly enough, a similar line of questioning led Einstein, in part, to grasping special relativity in 1905.

    Okay, well if I'm travelling just under the speed of light, then throw the tennisball (so it's going faster than the speed of light) what happens?

    Or I guess that's impossible as far as we know.

    It wouldn't go faster.

    A good way to picture it is like riding a bike. You know how, if you were to assume normal biking posture and put your feet on the pedals, but not go anywhere, the bike would fall over? That's because you aren't transfering kinetic energy yet. When you start to move, it gets easier to balance because energy is spent moving forwards. The slower you move, the harder to balance. It's a trade-off. (The analogy doesn't quite work because it's theoretically possible to stay perfectly balanced on a stationary bike, but let's assume it wasn't.)

    Light and time are similar. When you are at a constant velocity / stationary, you are moving at "light speed" through time. When you start to accelerate, you start to move slower through time, proportional to how fast you are accelerating. As you approach the speed of light, several things happen. One, it takes more and more energy to get closer and closer, until you reach the logical end, light speed, at which point it takes infinite energy to surmount the barrier. It's an exponential curve with a line at the end. Two, as your energy necessarily increases, your mass does, too, because energy is merely mc^2, or "sped up" mass. So you are reaching a point of infinite energy and infinite mass. Finally, time slows proportionally to how much energy you are expending in order to move through space at such speeds. So you slow and slow, and in order to reach light speed you need to... stop. Which means you haven't, have you?

    In answer to your question, in order to "throw" said ball faster than light you would need to hurl a soon-to-be-infinitely heavy ball with infinite force only to have it stop in time. A difficult proposition.

    HOW DO YOU FUCK UP BAGELS. YOU BOIL THE WATER. PUT IN THE NOODLES

    Well, without James Cameron's involvement, chances were never good. T3 was good for action fare, but pretty mediocre when compared with it's pedigree. Christian Bale gave me hopes for T4, but yeah. McG? The franchise is going towards manufacture - a investment/return scenario for the people footing the bill and holding the rights.

    Yeah, you don't really want to brag about Mexican food over on this side of the country. It's all in the Puerto Rican and Cuban food. And also the Brazillian meat buffets that are smattered across Roswell, GA for some damned reason.

    Churrasco is good if you really like meat. Otherwise I wouldn't recommend it.
