LOL! Love Jett's shirt.
Centcomm 7th Aug 2014, 2:11 AM edit delete reply

That was suggested by Mister Black :D
Big Nemo 7th Aug 2014, 6:27 AM edit delete reply

Is there a place where I can get one? :-)
Centcomm 7th Aug 2014, 3:11 PM edit delete reply

yes you can :D

mjkj 11th Aug 2014, 5:45 PM edit delete reply

But that is not the same t-shirt...

Jet's is so much nicer...

Went to sea on two of the Permit class submarines. They had a problem producing enough oxygen. Everyone went around with headaches for weeks.
Centcomm 7th Aug 2014, 2:12 AM edit delete reply

ouch- I could see that .. They crack O2 from Sea water right?
plymayer 7th Aug 2014, 3:02 AM edit delete reply

There are several methods, burning O2 candles, etc. We actually had to use the snorkle mast several times a day to bring in fresh air and expell the old (just like in the old WWII movies).
Centcomm 7th Aug 2014, 3:11 PM edit delete reply

oh wow.. that must have been tough
Mister Black 8th Aug 2014, 11:51 AM edit delete reply

I hope the Permits (being nuclear) didn't have the nasty habit that the diesel-electric boats did when running snorkel? My uncle served aboard a couple of those in WW2, and had horror stories (and hearing loss) about what happened when the snorkel head either submerged for a second, or the valves got crossed up and the diesels tried to run off the boat's internal air.
plymayer 8th Aug 2014, 3:26 PM edit delete reply

We didn't have that problem on either I was aboard but I'm sure they knew about it. Every nuc boat is also a diesel boat. They charge the batteries regularly in case they have to shut down the reactor for what ever reason. The diesel engine room is a good place to hide during a clean up ship field day. Only one vertical ladder in and out.

Yeah, the partial vacuum it could form was painful from reports. Rupture ear drums painful. :-\

Wow, Jet found a solution! :D

And Gali is so concerned but ready to jump right in with his discovery.

*hugs Gali*

Centcomm 7th Aug 2014, 3:47 AM edit delete reply

He hasnt said he solved it yet.. :D
mjkj 7th Aug 2014, 6:17 AM edit delete reply

But it sounded like he has - or will have in a short while...
Centcomm 7th Aug 2014, 3:12 PM edit delete reply

true .. :D

Science rules!
Centcomm 7th Aug 2014, 3:47 AM edit delete reply

yes it does...
Sheela 7th Aug 2014, 2:58 PM edit delete reply

No, no .. Nature rules, Science just describes.

Like, the "law of gravity" is a misnomer, it's the "theory of gravity", not a law .. we cannot dictate what nature does and it will do it wether we have a theory abouot it or not.

I wish more people would understand that.
Centcomm 7th Aug 2014, 3:12 PM edit delete reply

heh- I actually have for a long time .. :D
Sheela 7th Aug 2014, 11:13 PM edit delete reply

Oh, I'm not aiming this at you ... I'm more annoyed with the people who do the whole "creation is a fact (yay), science is just theories (boo) - Lets remove evolution from schools." ... and yes, they do exist.
Centcomm 8th Aug 2014, 12:10 PM edit delete reply

Yeeeah soo not going there. :P
Sheela 8th Aug 2014, 7:09 PM edit delete reply

Ever seen the documentary called Jesus Camp ?
Centcomm 9th Aug 2014, 2:18 PM edit delete reply

never seen that ..not sure I would care for it.
Sheela 10th Aug 2014, 12:24 AM edit delete reply

It was the kind of crazy that makes the other crazies go "wtf?" and shake their heads.

They even prayed to a full size cardboard cutout of George Bush .. no joke, it was a thing.
That said, the documentary in itself was pretty good.
I'd recommend watching it, even if, or perhaps even especially if, you're a moderate christian yourself. Or an atheist. Or any other religion.

It's crazy stuf, but it's also ENTERTAINING crazy stuff! :)
It was like looking trough a window into another world entirely.
They were that far removed from the rest of us.

Hello. Just doing a drive-by comment here, but I feel I must correct you. I absolutely agree with your first sentence, but the second part is incorrect.

In scientific terminology, a "law" is a descriptive term for a phenomenon that has demonstrated itself to be absolutely constant and invariable within its relevant parameters. It's also generally limited to things that can be described in relatively simple mathematical or algorithmical terms.

For any given mass and distance, the force of gravity will always be the same. This can be described mathematically, and it has been observationally confirmed down to several decimal places. Gravity is a law. There are some things that are called laws that probably shouldn't be, but this isn't one of them.

A "theory" in science, on the other hand, refers to a comprehensive, detailed explanation for *how* and *why* some observed phenomeon occurs. This is not to be confused with the popular use of the word, where people usually really mean something more like "hypothesis". However, even scientifically there is a bit of ambiguity in the word. While pretty much any detailed explanation can legitimately be called a "theory" in some sense (e.g. string theory), only those with solid evidential support behind them and show usefulness in predicting future observations are given full scientific THEORY status (e.g. evolution, relativity). A theory that has graduated to that level is, for all intents and purposes, considered fact.

While several theories of gravity have been postulated, none as of yet have amassed enough supporting evidence to be accepted by the scientific consensus. So no, there is no "Theory Of Gravity" at this time.
AltairIV 11th Aug 2014, 7:28 AM edit delete reply
Evolution, by the way, is both a fact and a theory. That it happens is aptly demonstrated by observation and experiment. How it happens is explained by the theory (and explained very well, in overall terms at least, though the details are still being worked out). There is no "law of evolution", although there are certainly laws involved at lower operational levels in the theory.

The trouble with evolution deniers is that the purposely conflate the popular and scientific meanings of the word theory so that they can dismiss one of the strongest, most well-supported, and productive areas of science as "just" a theory. It's just one small tool in their suite of dishonest tactics.

great page

Totally agreed shinka. The page is gorgeous. I'm especially taken by the shading on Galina. She is beautiful and shows some good expressions. :-)
