    I'm a Biomedicine major, and Gav's point about all of us being the sun was fucking awesome to me. He's right though, all the chemical energy that we have stored in all of our cells originates from plants capturing the sun's energy photosynthetically.

    Burnie's argument against evolution technically doesn't exist, (even though he isn't actually auguring against it.) An imperfection in a species is very solid evidence for evolution, as those imperfections are its driving force. As an expressed trait is found to be more advantageous over another, it is selected for over time. Without any disadvantages, there would be no traits to select for, and therefore no evolution.


    At the same time, sleep is most common in mammals, as is mentioned. This, to make something complicated very short, implies that organisms adapted to sleep. Sleep was a major trade off for things like larger body size, higher metabolism, and faster movement. We see trade offs like this constantly as species will take on a disadvantage in order to gain a better advantage.


    Sleep is also a critical time for important higher brain function like storage of long term memory, as another trade off example.

    "What is fire?" We can skip past the chemical explanation of what happens when something is burning, you want to know what the flames of a campfire are: Flames are the parts of smoke that's still burning. What you see as "fire" is a cloud of innumerable individual particles that have been flung into the air by the chemical reaction below - now with enough energy and exposure to air to react themselves. So that glow is billions of molecular bonds exploding into light as they reach oxygen with all their excess energy.

    The non-lethal "microwave" weapon is called the Vehicle-Mounted Active Denial System.


    It seems like it affects everyone differently, and not many units have been made. Injuries reported are relatively low compared to other non-lethal means though. I must have seen this on an episode of futureweapons way back when that was still airing. Ah, memories.

    I used to work in an Electronic Warfare Effects laboratory for the military. We talked about the Active Denial Weapon a lot. We also came up with some ideas on where that tech ended up.



    Those TSA Scanners everyone walks through have another name, Millimeter Wave Scanners.



    We always felt that the ADS was used to create the TSA mm wave scanners due to the penetration of mm waves into the skin, and how that can be used to get reflections and map the skin without the screaming.

    I'm a couple days late so this has already inevitably been said, but some science shit for anyone wondering:


    1. Infrared light is a separate set of wavelengths than visible light, so if an object reflects most of the visible light wavelengths it appears white, but that doesn't necessarily mean it also reflects infrared wavelengths, so it wouldn't necessarily be white on infrared. Burnie sounded like he understood it, though didn't articulate it perfectly by referring to a color's shade as "light/dark" rather than "white/black"


    2. Fire is a byproduct of a chemical reaction, a release of energy in the forms of both light and heat, so no, fire has no mass. Going back to point one, different elements and compounds release different wavelengths of light when they burn across the IR, visible, and UV spectrums.

      He just explains it in a really stupid way, making it sound like something that is not correct. Like "The sun is fire" is correct in the way that the energy that led to the fire being created came from the sun via photosynthesis, but the sun itself is not on fire, which is how it could also be interperated.

    To the evolution statement. Yes, if a predatory mammal was able to not sleep and still function perfectly it would most likely become the dominate creature in its habitat. However I think you are confusing what evolution is perceived to be to what it actually is. It seems to me that most people believe that the term "survival of the fittest" means that nature will breed the best species. That is not what it means. In the context that Darwin used he defined fitness as reproductive success. In Darwinian terms the phrase is best understood as "Survival of the form that will leave the most copies of itself in successive generations." So in itself natural selection only forces creatures to be good enough for their environments.

    • DinoBenn

      While that is true, I think the point Burnie is making is that if an animal (say a lion) didn't need to sleep, it could participate in its species' ritual activities while hunting at night, preying on diurnal animals which would be sleeping as it was hunting. Not sleeping gives it another 1/3 of the day to hunt, and while a big part of evolution is that whatever specimen is best capable of reproducing will pass on its genes, it is integral that the animal first reach that point. A lioness capable of birthing fifteen healthy cubs per litter has a lower chance of contributing to the gene pool than a lioness who never sleeps because the latter is less likely to starve to death or be attacked while asleep.

      DinoBenn you are correct, but becuase an animal has not evovled that ability doesn't make the process invaild.

      Burnie seems to think Evolution is some Starcraft noise where the point is to create perfect organisms on purpose. But it's not. The purpose of evolution is that organisms that suck slightly less than they did before by random mutation are maybe more likely to survive and add those mutations to the pool.

    A microwave oven passes (non-ionizing) microwave radiation at a frequency near 2.45 GHz (12 cm) through food, causing dielectric heating primarily by absorption of the energy in water. Microwave ovens became common kitchen appliances in Western countries in the late 1970s, following the development of less expensive cavity magnetrons. Water in the liquid state possesses many molecular interactions that broaden the absorption peak. In the vapor phase, isolated water molecules absorb at around 22 GHz, almost ten times the frequency of the microwave oven.

    Fire is the rapid oxidation of a material in the exothermic chemical process of combustion, releasing heat, light, and various reaction products.[1] Slower oxidative processes like rusting or digestion are not included by this definition.

    At a certain point in the combustion reaction, called the ignition point, flames are produced. The flame is the visible portion of the fire. Flames consist primarily of carbon dioxide, water vapor, oxygen and nitrogen. If hot enough, the gases may become ionized to produce plasma. Depending on the substances alight, and any impurities outside, the color of the flame and the fire's intensity will be different.


    Fires start when a flammable or a combustible material, in combination with a sufficient quantity of an oxidizer such as oxygen gas or another oxygen-rich compound (though non-oxygen oxidizers exist), is exposed to a source of heat or ambient temperature above the flash point for the fuel/oxidizer mix, and is able to sustain a rate of rapid oxidation that produces a chain reaction. This is commonly called the fire tetrahedron. Fire cannot exist without all of these elements in place and in the right proportions. For example, a flammable liquid will start burning only if the fuel and oxygen are in the right proportions. Some fuel-oxygen mixes may require a catalyst, a substance that is not consumed, when added, in any chemical reaction during combustion, but which enables the reactants to combust more readily.

    Once ignited, a chain reaction must take place whereby fires can sustain their own heat by the further release of heat energy in the process of combustion and may propagate, provided there is a continuous supply of an oxidizer and fuel.

    I'm sorry but I have to nerd out about evaporating water:

    Think about it as dissolving water in the air. For example you can dissolve salt in water without melting it first. If you heat the water up you can dissolve more salt in there.


    It works the same with water and air. If you heat the air or the water, the air will take in more water until eventually the water boils and turns into a gas itself. That is the point where you can have pure gaseous water, whereas before you can only have humid air. The point depends on the overall pressure in your system.


    This is also the reason why A\C-units almost always leak water: The warm air outside contains water which cannot stay dissolved if you cool the air down significantly, so it precipitates and gets dumped away.


    Merry Christmas everyone,

    Tobi

      so... you're that guy who tries to correct science while being wrong? water cant dissolve, for something to dissolve you need a solute and a solvent. Air is not a solvent. Humidity is the measure of water vapor in the air, water vapor being the gaseous form of water. So to have humid air, water must have evaporated into it. In terms of the water boiling below room temperature, look up something called the "maxwell-boltzman distribution curve of molecular energies". It shows that in any substance the energy among molecules isn't consistent, which is why in chemistry or physics the temperature of a substance has to be defined as the AVERAGE molecular energy. So statistically there will always be some molecules in a substance with the required energy to "evaporate". Its possible you just didnt word it well, but when you talked about humidity it seemed that you thought humid air was completely separate from water vapor (or how you've put it "pure gaseous water"). In reality all air contains water vapor, the percentage is humidity.

      In summary, please don't use the term "nerd out" about something without at least fact checking your answer, since this is the internet, and someone will pull you up on incorrect information eventually
