Pfffffft silly people thinking ice is cold... I still remember going to the Science center in Baltimore as a kid and watching science demos.
One of my favorite? they had a thermometer that worked in reverse - it went up as it got colder. It was like 7' or 8' tall... but anywhoz the guy would dip the end of it in a beaker of Liquid nitrogen, then "warm it up" in ice water
I will grant you ice is better for keeping room temperature things cold due to it's much greater heat capacity, but ice itself is relatively hot (273 degrees Kelvin if I'm not mistaken... give or take a small decimal amount) compared to liquid oxygen (90.18 K/ -295.6 F) liquid nitrogen (77 K/-321 F), liquid helium (which must be compressed and cooled to 20.27 K/ -423.17 F), absolute zero, etc
Responsible federal governing fiscally (and . . . ah, wait, I'll bite my tongue) and equal opportunity for everyone to make of it what he or she will. Sadly, just a pipe dream.
Lincoln's one of my main guys. He was a whig early on, his political hero was Henry Clay, a national progressive if there ever was one (I understand). Today, Lincoln would no doubt be branded as a tax-and-spend liberal.
(I'm having a bit of fun. Too political? If so, I'll stop. I do not want to ignite a mean diatribe here between members. I'd rather delete this message than see that happen. Although, this is an off-topic thread. . . .)
Last time I was grounded was for the following: My brother stole something out of my room, I took it back while he was using it, he followed me and yelled at me, I cussed at him and my dad over heard. I got grounded for 2 weeks - I didn't talk to my dad for 2 months. I'm guessing I should have sued instead?
I have to admit that I was wondering whether the judge in the case was male or female--I wondered if a woman might have more empathy for a twelve year old girl than a male, potentially a father himself. Here's what I found, take it for what you will:
I wonder if they actually showed the judge the extent of the "inappropriate photos"?Quote:
Even so, Justice Suzanne Tessier found her punishment too severe.
