One question:What do you guys see in classical?
Ummm, where should I begin. Classical music contains variety which far surpasses the variety in modern music. From dainty baroque minuets to modern movie scores, classical encompasses just about any sound you can imagine. People who find classical music boring have usually not listened to much classical music. You can't make any blanket statements about classical. So I ask you, hy don't you like classical. It's quite possible that your problems with classical music are actually a misconception of the genre.

Du hast recht!"Sprache" war ein Typo. Ich habe nicht genug deise Woche geschlafen. Mein Grammatik ist abscheulich, aber ich verstande genug zu überleben. Also, ich habe nicht Deutsch für drei Jahre studiert. "Sprache" war ein Typo.

I prefer music that was written before I was born. I am a big Beatles fan. Other groups/artists I enjoy are Aerosmith, Billy Joel, Bon Jovi, Elton John, Simon and Garfunkle, The Who, and many more.
I also enjoy Jazz and Classical. My favorite classical music is not strictly Classical, but rather Romantic, I'm a big fan of Saint-Saens. Other classical commposers I enjoy include Faure (I LOVE his Elegie for Cello and Piano), Bach, and Squire.
Other music I enjoy includes anything by Yoko Kanno (The composer for the anime Cowboy Bebop) and John Williams.

I've heard the idea before. I think it was in Discover or Popular Science at some point, in an article on future energy sources.

I speak English and German.
Ich sprache Englisch und Deutsch.

EDIT: It would probably be more correct to say that I read and write German. I almost never speak it.

From his earlier post, Cairo Jim was describing a classic perpetual motion machine. Unfortunately, they are forbidden by the second law of thermodynamics. Energy can't come out of nowhere. The reason your particular design doesn't work is that in an ideal circumstance, the machine could continue moving up and down forever. It doesn't create any net energy, the force required to create the energy will slow down and eventually stop the system. Even if you weren't trying to generate any power, the system would still eventually stop, due to frictional forces.

I find it amusing that you have the old graphics, considering that you weren't born when Exile I was released.

Bomber would be correct of course. The first one (second to last post on page two) is incorrect.

We had a week long event to raise awareness about darfur on campus at UCF. Some students camped outside in a makeshift refugee camp for the whole week. I performed at a awareness concert at the end of the week. Unfortunately, grassroots movements like this are viewed with indifference by many politicians.

BTW, that does not include any participant in this debate, afaik. I am allergic to inherited victimhood.
I had a relative who died in the holocaust. Obviously I never knew him, but still, it does make it a bit more personal.

As a general rule, it's a bad idea to argue with a nuclear engineer over uranium supply. This stuff is his livelihood.

That was more of a fixed your idea than a fixed your typo.
What I am saying is the only reason that the actions of the Americans should be involved is if you, for some hare-brained reason, believe that the Americans were the perpetrators of the Holocaust.

From a logical standpoint, actions of the US and it's allies are completely irrelevant, unless you are suggesting that the Allies ran the concentration camps. The fact that other groups have or haven't committed atrocities in no way changes whether another atrocity has taken place.

It is true that in a standard black hole you will reach singularity, infact it happens mere seconds after crossing the event horizon. In the case of certain rotating black holes, you never reach singularity.
