Our country speaks english Why in the hell do we half to push 1 if we speek english?? Are fore fathers had to Learn english and the laws of our free country. Then anyone coming into are country to live free should become a US citizen,s As long as they go about it the right way. IT cost us lots of tax dollars to make signs in other language and print up papers. Our goverment needs to wake up and do it like it was done in the 1800's. That would be the fair way.

I had a lucid dream last night. All I really remember is becoming aware that I was asleep. Then I felt a vibration all throughout my body, and I started to lift up... then I woke up. Damn it.

I'll get out next time.

I just had an interesting idea for a study in language formation. You isolate a group of 10 monoglots whose native languages do not have a common ancestor (i.e. are not from the same language family). The  object is to see if and how they would find  a means to communicate with each other, as well as what forms that language would take.

I wonder if that's already been done with verbal language. I bet what would happen is the most assertive individual would impose their language on the other subjects, rather than the group creating a pidgin from the 10 source inventories. I know Nicaraguan sign language is an interesting example of something similar, but I'm mostly interesting in verbal language.

I've discovered how to have multiple orgasms!

Details: I read about this on the internet, and it really works! You know the muscle you use to stop pissing mid-stream? Well when you are about to ejaculate, just keep that muscle flexed until your orgasm is over. You will probably ejaculate a little, but you can maintain your erection afterwards, and have more orgasms to boot.

Ladies, tell your menz!

How big is a googolplex?

One googol is greater than the number of elementary particles in the known universe, which has been variously estimated from 1079 up to 1085. Since a googolplex is one followed by a googol zeroes, it would not be possible to write down or store a googolplex in decimal notation, even if all the matter in the known universe were converted into paper and ink or disk drives.

Thinking of this another way, consider printing the digits of a googolplex in unreadable, 1-point font. TeX 1pt font is .3514598mm per digit, which means it would take about 3.5×1096 meters to write in one point font. The known universe is estimated at 7.4×1026 meters in diameter, which means the distance to write the digits would be about 4.7×1069 times the diameter of the known universe. The time it would take to write such a number also renders the task implausible: if a person can write two digits per second, it would take around 1.1×1082 times several billion years to write down a googolplex.
