Science / Re: Direct Down Wind Faster Than The Wind
Also, like, in the tablecloth trick, the objects still move. They just don't have time to move very much because the tablecloth is removed quickly. If you had an indefinitely long tablecloth, the objects would keep moving.
If only the Mythbusters covered that.

Suggest splitting this out to a new thread titled:
"Nothing happens until something moves Physics Thread"


Done.
Split from here

Hi Heinz! Let's be friends.

They have to repeal it because it is named (informally) Obamacare.  If they are able to repeal and replace with anything else (even if it's essentially the same thing) they wouldn't call it Obamacare anymore.  The most important thing is to wipe out the legacy of the black guy.

Looks like a rare piece of positive news. He's being less of a dick to those directly affected and selling out his base.


The responses to Coulter's tweet are awesome.

It was 5 this morning, now it's up to 8.

There's a hospital literally across the street.

Ugh.

I also like how you are encouraged to keep three days supply of food and water on hand but the electric takes about seven days to get back on. :golfclap:
Are the stores open?  When Ike came through Houston, most stores had no power for about two weeks so they didn't have anything frozen or refrigerated shipped in.  It was really nice when we got to buy meat and dairy again. We also had FEMA handing out water and food rations within about 3 days. But you had to wait in line for a couple hours to get supplies.

Some of my east coast friends are getting their power back. One friend on Merritt Island has power, but no drinkable water.

I talked to my mom (who is in Maine), she talked to her neighbors and her house is OK, she expects to get some water in around a sliding glass door that doesn't seal well and she's not scheduled to fly back to Florida until Friday.  So there may be some mold issues to deal with by the time she does get back.

Well, since we don't have any firsthand accounts, I can report that several friends in ksen's area (Melbourne/Palm Bay) are reporting little damage, but yards are covered in branches, power out for many/most.

Roads are green on google maps.  If you still want to get out and you're north of I-10 or so, now would be a good time.

The interstates look green on google maps right now.  The only bad spots are I-75 between Tampa and Ocala and a little bit of I-4 between Lakeland and Orlando. If they left in the middle of the night, then they probably had mostly clear roads.

There's a group of employees staying at the Hemingway house.  It's concrete block, and something like 14' above sea level so they feel pretty safe.  They also have plenty of provisions.

I'm becoming more and more convinced that's the plan. I've felt from the beginning Trump would be instrumental in destroying the Republican party,
I've posted this before, but that's what Jesse Ventura said last year.
