Puns, Jokes, and other what-not

Sun Jan 13, 2013 7:59 pm

It's simply: you can put all the puns and jokes you want in this thread. Bad ones, good ones, hell even ones that don't make any sense! So go out there and... be funny. Or stupid, idk.

Yeah I'm not going to put my puns in this thread. The delivery is in making the joke into a thread.

While most of the pun threads are terrible bottom of the barrel sort of stuff, it's at least content. Consolidating them all into one thread would do away with that.

Since this has turned into the Science Thread, WHERE THE HELL IS BILL NYE THE FUCKING SCIENCE GUY??

Bill Nye isn't the be-all end-all of science

you have so much bacteria in your mouth that if they were visible you'd think "shiiiiiiiiit".

Humans have so much mouth bacteria that human bites are septic. Not as bad as a Komodo dragon's, but worse than just about everything else, and more dangerous to other humans than most actually poisonous bites to be found in nature.

There is so much bacteria in a human body that they outnumber human cells by an order of magnitude or so, coming to a couple percent of the total body mass.

most of an atom is empty space, so while you're sitting at your computer remember that it, the chair you're sitting on, and even you, are mostly not there.

It's actually stranger than that. Protons, neutrons, and electrons are indeed very much smaller than atoms (the nucleus compared to the whole atom is like a marble in the middle of a sports arena, where the marble weighs more than a thousand times as much as the arena), but the electrons do not occupy discrete locations such that the majority of the atom's volume can properly be said to be empty. Instead, electrons occupy clouds of probability that intersect, overlap, and occupy the volume of atoms. In molecules, those clouds interact to form interatomic bonds.

neat.

also, we are all floating on a quantum level but I don't really know the words to explain why since that's not my area of science. Val?

Hard to say without more information of what in particular you're referring to. Could be a metaphor for Dirac seas, quantum effects that ignore gravity, or various field effects.

I'm pretty sure I read that molecules don't like to touch each other so we are not actually touching anything ever. so if we sit we are not actually touching the chair we're being repelled by the molecules of the chair, so in effect we're floating on a quantum level.

Come on down and buy Neo's Fantastical Repulsar chair! Never actually touch the chair molecules again! Through patented Neo technology, you've hover a just very slightly above the chair! But they aren't sold in stores. Call the number below and get one today for a mere $19.99!
