Hi titou

I do not deserve that honour! Actually this must go to Einstein too.

His famous formular says it well : E = m*c²

Cheers

p.s. 1 g of mass equivalent to almost 90 terajoules (9*10^13)

My body contains the equivalent of 10^19 joule - that is a lot of energy - but it doesn't feel like it! Far from it!!! :-)

 

Hi friends :wink:

 

may I add "All is Energy" (Solbjerg) to the list ? :lol:

 

Thank you Atailor, for the link, the animation is very well made.

 

very best regards,

how is it that ?

 

Hi friends :wink:

 

How is it that when playing dice, the number 7 does not come more often ?

 

7 is indeed the one that is most likely to appear !

 

for 2 and 12 there is just one combination : 1+1 and 6+6

for 3 and 11 there are two : 1+2, 2+1 and 6+5, 5+6

for 4 and 10 there are tree

for 5 and 9 there are four

for 6 and 8 there are five

for 7 there are six combinations !

 

so there are 6 time more likely for 7 to come than for 2...

hi titou

As you say there are 6 sides to each cube

That makes 36 possible outcomes

2 is (1+1) one of them out of 36 → 1:36

12 likewise → 1:36

3 → 2:36

11 → 2:36

4 → 3:36

10 → 3:36

5 → 4:36

9 → 4:36

6 → 5:36

8 → 5:36

7 → 6:36

All the x/36 added together comes to 36:36

So chances are that every 6 throws will yield a seven on average.

Enigma

 

Hi friends :wink:

 

Here's a riddle that no computer has yet resolved ...

 

A man asks another one the respective ages of his 3 daughters. He answers :

- The multiplication of their 3 ages is 36.

 

I can not deduce their ages ! exclaimed the first man.

- The sum of their ages gives the same number as that which is listed on the porch in front of us.

 

I still can not answer! said the first man.

- The eldest is blonde.

 

Ah, ok I understand their respective ages now!

 

 

How did he do it? Simply by reasoning like a human ....

 

Would you try ?

Hi titou

Tentatively ;-)

The possibilities are

4-3-3 = 10

6-3-2 = 11

9-2-2 = 13

Chances are that the oldest have two little sisters that are twins and have another hair colour, that leaves 2 possibilities, but in many places the house number 13 is missing in the streets due to superstition - and that then leaves the ages 4-3-3

the answer is within yours

 

Hi Solbjerg :wink:

 

there are 8 combinations from the first sentence :

2X3X6 witch the sum is 11

2X2X9 witch the sum is 13

4X9X1 witch the sum is 14

4X3X3 witch the sum is 10

18X2X1 witch the sum is 21

12X3X1 witch the sum is 16

6X6X1 witch the sum is 13

36X1X1 witch the sum is 38

 

when the man said that the sum of their ages is the same of the porch and the other man answer that he can't deduce the solution that means that there are few possibilities... so the number is 13...

2X2X9 or 6X6X1

 

the oldest is blonde means that she is not twin, so 9X2X2 is the answer

 

the girls are 9, 2 and 2 years old :roll:

 

very best regards,

Hi titou

That is also a possibility - to complicate it a bit we could also assume that the youngest was less than a year old (fx. 61 days in a year that was a leap year)

That could yield 6x6x(61/366) = 6

This would really extend the possible combinations :-)

Hi Guys!

 

I certainly don't roll dice but it seems that the number six is most likely to appear as it has more divots in it and that side of the die should have slightly less mass... (gravity will have more pull on the opposite side) thus six plus another number is more likely. If you roll doubles, six plus six should be the prevalent statistical dominance. The Side with one divot should statistically appear less often as it is the heaviest. The fact that the one and six are on opposite sides should (theoretically) enhance the likelihood that you would have a six instead of a one.

 

Sincerely,

-Mel

Live long and prosper!

Strange paradoxes ...

 

We have higher buildings but less beautiful views;

 

Higher wages but less security;

 

Bigger houses but smaller families;

 

More appliances, but less time and rest;

 

More diplomas and degrees but less common sense;

 

More information and knowledge but less judgment;

 

More experts, more problems, more doctors, less care, more medicines, but more diseases;

 

We have multiplied our possessions but reduced our values​​;

 

Successful in life but not our life;

 

Added years to life but not life to years;

 

We go to the moon, but are unable to talk to our neighbors;

 

We plan a lot, but not accomplish much;

 

We learn to rush, but are never patient;

 

We have higher incomes, but lower morale.

 

This is the time of fast food and slow digestion;

 

Greatest men but less character;

 

more recreation with less pleasure;

 

Beautiful houses with broken homes;

 

Lightning travels and adventures of an evening;

 

Pills to fall asleep or pills for laugh;

 

Of test tube babies, cloning and operations of a day.

 

This is the time of great technologies.

 

This message has reached the speed of light ...

 

You can click "delete" quickly or quietly meditate and change gradually ...

 

You decide.

Hi titou

Curiouser and curiouser

 

How doth the little crocodile

Improve his shining tail,

And pour the waters of the Nile

On every golden scale!

 

Or in Isaac Watts' words:

 

How doth the little busy bee

Improve each shining hour,

And gather honey all the day

From every opening flower!

 

Cheers

Hi titou

Sorry - there was no deeper meaning than the topic name put me in mind of Alice in Wonderland

And that you in your quest for the curious may end up finding more and more "curiouser things" :-)

But the social aspect in the two verses could be something worth exploring.

"In separate cells the hes and shes pay their wows with bended knees" Jonathan Swift - just to put a different slant on religious practices. :-) (toilets)

Hi Solbjerg :wink:

 

From first read, the crocodile works for himself whereas the bee works for the community... :roll:

 

very best regards,
