Do you and your new girl not have xbox dates? Obviously you two are not serious.

I put it with watching random episodes of Jersey Shore or Jerry Springer, sometimes you just want to watch a train wreck. The best part is the conductor of the train gets told how to avoid it and then completely ignores those directions and plows head first into the wall.

While this may not be the OP's situation, when you live in Pittsburgh and your girlfriend lives in Conroe Texas, your dating options are somewhat limited.

well, I thought with 2 herniated discs at 22 years old I could be an apprentice and carry tires around all day. My locked and inflamed back after 3 double shifts determined that was a lie.

almost done with my auto tech course too. don,t know what to do. my life sucks.

have a good goddamn day mt.net

But seriously, my chiropractor clued me in on something that I wish I had known 20 years ago. Take magnesium supplements in large quantities (about 300-400% of the RDA) for a few days and it will act as a natural muscle relaxant after the first day. It has been working very well at releasing my tight back any time it needs it now. It won't make you drowsy or loopy like the central nervous system depressants do. Once your body has enough magnesium to relax the muscles, you will experience a loose stool and can ease back on the dosage at that point. That is the only side effect.

I sympathize with your plight. In fact, the missus and I are presently separated by a distance of over 100 miles, and we see each other mostly on weekends. Despite this, the idea of referring to a game of Call of Duty as a "date" would never have crossed my mind. A "date" is when she runs her slender fingers through your thick, unruly hair as you exchange bodily fluids through more than one orifice simultaneously.

That's not a date. A date is obviously listening to 13 year old kids talk about what they did to your Mother the previous night. ROMANTIC AS ****.

thanks for the magnesium tip, I'lld efinately try that.

as for the old guy tip ; I would be the young guy at the garage (22 years old)
I just played a lot of soccer in my youth and that is the result.

NASA Reveals Latest Warp-Drive Ship Designs | IFLScience
NASA Reveals Latest Warp-Drive Ship Designs

June 11, 2014 | by Justine Alford




Look at the picture above. Nope, it’s not a snapshot of a Star Wars scene, or any other sci-fi movie. It’s what you get if you combine a NASA physicist working on achieving faster-than-light travel with a 3D artist, and the result is freaking AWESOME. And yes, you heard correctly, there are scientists working on faster-than-light travel, and this is what the ship could look like in the future.

You might be thinking to yourself right now “Faster-than-light travel? But Einstein!” Yes, according to Einstein’s theory of relativity, nothing can travel faster than the speed of light. But scientists are looking for ways to get around this, and a team based at NASA Eagleworks, led by Dr Harold “Sonny” White, have been working on just that. They discovered a loophole that could theoretically allow faster-than-light travel without breaking the laws of physics. How? Warp drive, of course!

If a spaceship could be designed in such a way that it created a warp bubble, then the space in front of the ship would be compressed and the space behind would expand. This would result in space-time moving around the object, repositioning the ship without it actually moving.

“Remember, nothing locally exceeds the speed of light, but space can expand and contract at any speed,” White told io9.

So of course, White’s new design incorporates these ideas and involves “a sleek ship nestled at the center of two enormous rings, which create the warp bubble,” 3D artist Mark Rademaker explained to io9. You can check out some more of Rademaker and White's ship design here.

Think this sounds a little too futuristic? According to a report by Gizmodo, White’s team has been using a test instrument called a White-Juday Warp Field Interferometer in order to try and generate and detect microscopic instances of warp bubbles. If they can achieve this, then who knows how quickly the technology could advance. “Perhaps a ‘Star Trek’ experience within our lifetime is not such a remote possibility” says White.

If you’d like to find out more, watch this clip below from 41:54 to see White discussing the design:

And yet, the ship has its interior lights on.

So, what's the point in having interior lights?










That was a lame attempt for a cheap joke, Joe..

Aaah, I understand.

Actually, opinions about this would seem to be mixed. According to some interpretations of general relativity, light always travels and the speed of light, regardless of the velocity of its source or its observer. By some accounts, light would be expected to propagate outwards from a source at the speed of light, even if that source is traveling at a velocity equal to or greater than the speed of light.

Of course, the presence of the planet in the background suggests that this ship is merely idling in orbit, posing for its beauty shot.

With how the warp bubble is suppose to work, no.

There is a new girl over on Miataforumz.com (our sister site) that is asking a question for which I don't have an answer. Input would be great so I will know how to advise her. Or one of you could go over and post a response.
