    I didn't take high school very seriously, but we built some mad bongs with materials swiped from the science labs. I also built a time machine in year 12. Didn't really work though.

    A bong is a time machine. You pull some cones then ask, "why are we here?" and a few seconds later, several hours have passed

    What's this Planet X AKA Niburu bullshit?

    Is it a real thing or a nerds wet dream?

    It's bullshit. To understand how bullshit it is, you have to know the full details of what it is.

    Planet Niburu/Planet X is believed to be a planet that's come from another solar system and has entered our solar system and will eventually reach earth. There's two different beliefs surrounding the planet. Either:

    - It will pass earth and it's gravitational force will tear our planet apart

    Or

    - It will collide with earth wiping out all life on our planet

    First problem with the first part. The moon is fairly close to earth. It's fairly large. It's gravitational force is strong enough to move water. It's gravitational force on us is less than that gravitational force of a fly landing on our arm. A planet would have to pass very close to us and unless it suddenly stopped and went into orbit around us (which is completely illogical) then it would have no effect on us.

    The problem with the latter point is that our planet travels at over 100,000 km/h. A planet or object has to be really close to us for us to calculate its trajectory. The planet was first discussed over 20 years ago. It would have hit us by now. Which brings me to the 3rd point...

    Every belief around the planet said that it will reach us in 2012. It's 8 years late.

    Speaking of the irony of science. It allowed the Catholic Church to become even more strict on abortion, since science showed the process of a human developing straight away at conception.
    Also, who here knew the calendar we have today is the most accurate we have ever had, and was made by the Catholic Church? Hence we shouldn’t be changing bc and ad to bce and ce. Disrespectfullllllll

    Did you have a read about the recent science finding that the universe isn’t actually infinite or every growing or whatever. There’s a point A and point B. Apparently when you reach point B you come straight back to point A.

    Sounds like you were oppressed by a white man. Not good. So many people can relate to this, as every kid who doesn’t do well at school is always coz of the teacher or higher up. Never the kid!!!!! Lol. Ironic that it was asians, some lebos and Indians that came out on top. That was with a white guy right at the top as well. Crazy

    Can we create a wormhole to get us all to the point in time where the Bulldogs are successful again? Might not be enough technology to fold space to achieve that feat but it was worth the sentimental thought right?

    Looking forward, I’m warming to a Roosters supporter. WTF.

    To be peer reviewed is Science.

    If the Sun disappeared for some reason we wouldn’t know for 7 to 8 minutes.

    I actually was successful in making a time machine with my partner Dr Emmett Brown, we travelled back in time before John DeLorean made those pieces of shit he called cars and bumped Mr DeLorean off just after he left GMC...

    I have heard of this theory. There's several different theories. One being the jumping back. The other being a warp around. The theory says that the universe is shaped like a doughnut and you can never really reach the edge because it warps around and sends you back.

    Yep. Speed of light.

    There's this interesting quantum theory about a collapsed boson. If a boson collapsed to a certain level (which is nearly impossible) then it's believed that it would destroy all space and time around it, and that would create a wave that travels at the speed of light and wipes out everything in front of it.

    And if this happened we wouldn't know about it until it hit us as nothing can travel faster than the speed of light.

    Ancient tree with a record of Earths magnetic poles reversing found in New Zealand.

    https://www.newsweek.com/ancient-tree-discovered-earths-magnetic-field-1447570

    An ancient tree that contains a record of a reversal of Earth's magnetic field has been discovered in New Zealand. The tree—an Agathis australis, better known as its Māori name kauri—was found in Ngawha, on New Zealand's North Island, during excavation work for the expansion of a geothermal power plant, stuff.nz reports.

    The tree, which had been buried in 26 feet of soil, measures eight feet in diameter and 65 feet in length. Carbon dating revealed it lived for 1,500 years, between 41,000 and 42,500 years ago.

    "There's nothing like this anywhere in the world," Alan Hogg, from New Zealand's University of Waikato, told the website. "This Ngāwhā kauri is unique."

    The lifespan of the kauri tree covers a point in Earth's history when the magnetic field almost reversed. At this time, the magnetic north and south went on an excursion but did not quite complete a full reversal.

    Earth's magnetic field is thought to be generated by the iron in the planet's core. As it moves around, it produces electric currents that extend far into space. The magnetic field acts as a barrier, protecting Earth from the solar wind. This is a stream of charged particles from the Sun that could strip away the ozone layer if it were to impact the atmosphere.

    When the magnetic field reverses—or attempts to—it gets weaker, leading to more radiation from the Sun getting through. Previously, scientists have linked extinction events to magnetic field reversals.

    The newly discovered kauri tree's rings contain a complete record of a near-reversal—the first time a tree that lived during the entire event has ever been found. "It's the time it takes for this movement to occur that is the critical thing...We will map these changes much more accurately using the tree rings," Hogg told stuff.nz.

    This is interesting as some believe we may be heading for another of these pole reversals soon. But fret not - https://www.nationalgeographic.com/news/2018/01/earth-magnetic-field-flip-north-south-poles-science/

    Hahah. Yeah, I forgot about this one. When random websites put this up they said it would collide in August 2016. Nasa was quick to point out that it's fake.
