Astronaut Analogy

I had added the {fact} tag because of the following: "much as an astronaut living in a pressurized space station ages more slowly than his twin at home." If this was about the "twins paradox", the reason the twin in space ages more slowly is that he's traveling at high speed relative to his earthbound sibling - pressure has nothing to do with it. Besides the pressure in a space station is going to be reasonably close to that of sea level, for multiple reasons. --DinsdaleP 12:31, 19 August 2008 (EDT)

Compressibility

"Everything is compressible"? Well, in terms of hydraulics there are limited cases where this is true, so for the sake of accuracy I consider myself corrected in terms of "less" vs. "non". For what it's worth, I was writing for the target audience of homeschoolers and avoiding getting into the specific classifications of hydraulic fluid compressibility you'd find at a source like this. At the level of the target audience, it seemed more appropriate to contrast hydraulics with pneumatics in terms of Pascal's law, and treat fluids as non-compressible. No problem, though, and I'm glad the other nonsense was removed. --DinsdaleP 10:15, 20 August 2008 (EDT)

Unbelievably dangerous experiment.

The idea of exploding gas pressure in a corked bottle is bad enough. But the thing with dry ice, and putting it in the oven is just unbelievable. Also, the idea of "ask your parents for a chunk of dry ice" is particularly incredible. Anyone that needs to ask one's parents for experimental apparatus has not graduated past coloring books. By the way, my parents didn't have chunks of dry ice, and wouldn't have given them to me if they did.

There was a time when some of the articles at Conservapedia were reasonably aimed at children for whom "ask your parents" was a plausible phrase, but, with all the articles on bestiality, those days are long past. SamHB (talk) 19:25, 13 December 2015 (EST)

SamHB, do you think the Bible should be banned? The reason I ask is that it mentions the topic multiple times.
No, of course I don't think the Bible should be banned. And I doubt that the Bible mentions exploding dry ice in a milk container. Dry ice wasn't discovered until the 19th century.
Just admit it. The liberal evolutionist population has had a significant problem with bestiality in recent years whereas the Christian conservative population doesn't have a significant problem. I realize that this is a source of embarrassment and a sore point with you, nevertheless this is the case. Conservative (talk) 20:06, 13 December 2015 (EST)
Oh, I get it now. You were referring to all your recent writing about sex with horses. No, that has nothing to do with exploding milk containers, as far as I know. And I am not aware that either the "liberal evolutionist population" or the "Christian conservative population" has a significant problem involving sex with horses. And I have no data on whether one of those groups has more of a problem than the other. In fact, I know virtually nothing about the prevalence of sex with horses, though I occasionally see "weird news" articles (which I don't waste my time with) on the internet about people being accused of same. I don't know anyone that ever discusses the subject. And I can assure you that the topic of sex with horses is not a "source of embarrassment and a sore point" with me.

The staunch evolutionists countries have a problem in this area: Evolutionary belief and bestiality. I know it and you know it. Christian conservatives have no such problem! Conservative (talk) 02:38, 6 January 2016 (EST)
