In viking times there was a method of torture called the Blood Eagle,it was used by the vikings,it was for show really,but what they did was,they would flay the skin off your back just enough to expose the ribs,they would then break the ribs and turn them around to make it look like you had bloody wings,they also took your lungs out of your body so you would suffocate to death.

Harvard has an acceptance rate of around 4.7%. I would imagine that this is due to many applicants more than their extremely high selectiveness.

 

The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) has an acceptance rate of less than 2%.

 

There is no such thing as a free market - immigration restrictions are an example of regulations.

There are ten million, million, million, million, million, million, million, million, million particles in the known universe that we can observe.

 

=10*106*106*106*106*106*106*106*106*106 = 101+(6*9) = 1055 "particles".

While I applaud your attempt at trying to convey the stupendousness of the universe, your number is less than half as large as it should be.

 

The estimated mass of the universe is 1085 kilograms.

 

If the entire universe was made only of protons (essentially hydrogen gas), this would mean there would be [1085*1000 (grams/kg) * 6.022*1023 (atoms per gram, according to Avogadro's number)] =~ 6.022*10111 protons.

 

However, the universe is made of many kinds of particles, such as electrons and muons. Many of these particles we don't understand, so we can't really count them yet. In fact many kinds of particles we've never even seen before, such as virtual particles or whatever's responsible for dark energy. At least on the basis of electrons being very tiny and light compared to protons, the number of particles in the universe is probably a much larger number than the one I just gave.

Aparently, your team color can help determine your chances at winning if you dont make a conscous effert to think about it.

 

Red typically induces agression and/or fear, putting you at an advantage in games like halo, where you have to react quickly and the like.

Blue, however, induces calmness and logical thinking. This helps in games where you need to plan out your attack.

 

Of course, thats what they say. I tend to suck online either way. :lol:

Astronaut space suits have cooling systems that only work in vacuums. If they were in a pressurized environment like in an atmosphere, they would clog up with ice and slowly overheat the suit.

In a marching band competition, the judges very well could go on and not notice a fairly large mistake you make, such as forgetting a phrase if you are in a large enough band. They just pick up on your facial expression, such as when you cringe at a sour note.

The Karman Line is the international definition of the boundary between "space" and the "atmosphere". For Earth, the Karman Line is 100km altitude, or 328 084 ft.

 

The Karman Line is defined as the point at which, if you were flying in an aircraft through the thinning atmosphere, you would need to be traveling faster than what's necessary to maintain a stable orbit, in order to maintain lift. Effectively the point where the difference between a plane and a satellite is moot. Theodore Karman figured it out in the 1950s, and his mathematical model which predicted that region of the sky stated that it was very near 100km. Standards International liked the concept but replied with "Let's just make it 100km and call it square." and Karman was like "Whatev."

 

The US Air Force defines space as any altitude above 100 000ft. This is significantly less than  the definition used everywhere else, but makes for a useful buzz-phrase when amateur balloonists and high performance military aircraft enter the region.

 

The International Space Station and Space Shuttle operate at an altitude of roughly 400km, or 1.3 million ft. The highest commercial aircraft go is roughly 40 000 ft.

The book "Futility, or the Wreck of the Titan" by Morgan Robertson is about the largest ocean liner in the world hitting an iceberg and sinking in the north Atlantic while en route to New York. The book was published 14 years before the Titanic sank.

 

All of the White Star Line's ship names ended in ic (Examples: Titanic, Britannic, Olympic, Baltic)

 

The Olympic and Titanic were both the same size however, the Titanic weighed slightly more and so it was considered bigger

 

The Titanic did not have a room numbered 13

 

The most expensive thing to sink with the Titanic (other than the ship itself) was a brand new Renault automobile

 

I really like the Titanic
