Do you think your life is the best it can be? if it isn't what is holding you back? are you happy with your life? What do you think about the war and other things that are in life?

What is the meaning of life. Is there a God, a higer being, life after death.Why were we put here and how.Is science a closer gap to god then religion and the "chosen ones" feel free to answer with any of your own opinions, just curious to see what others think. IS CARTMAN CHOSEN BY A HIGHER POWER?

Well, the name describes it, What do YOU think the meaning of life is? if you have one i'd like to hear it.As this is a discussion in the name of clever people, i hope that this will not trigger any racist views, as anyone who is naive enough to put colour first person later,or ethnics first, should not be considered a valued member of this community.(Thanks to http://angelatesta.wordpress.com/2009/01/12/what%E2%80%99s-the-meaning-of-life/ for providing the picture)

Any one know about how long 4 double a's wired in series will last with a 200 milliamp load, here is what the online LED calculator said, I'm working on putting this in a small flashlight:Solution 0: 1 x 2 array uses 2 LEDs exactly +----|>|---/\/\/----+ R = 27 ohms +----|>|---/\/\/----+ R = 27 ohmsThe wizard says: In solution 0: each 27 ohm resistor dissipates 270 mW the wizard says the color code for 27 is red violet black the wizard thinks Â½W resistors are needed for your application together, all resistors dissipate 540 mW together, the diodes dissipate 700 mW total power dissipated by the array is 1240 mW the array draws current of 200 mA from the source.-thanks

While I was watching TV, I heard that China has made a life sized gundam. I have watched this show a few times, and I think they made 'White One' or Amour's gundam, I think that his name is right. They might have made a Zaku too, or maybe just its head. If you have pictures or any opinion, post away.

http://boyslife.org/wayback/ I most remember "scouts in action" these were cautionary tales, as well as how to get yourself or a stranger out of a tight spot. They seem to be about page 45 to 65. Common topics: "trapped in quicksand" or " when the cave collapsed" or "the chemistry set explosive went off in his hand!!" But there was so much more, like how to make stuff with sticks, rope and knots. So much of my kidhood was howto based on scout stuff. I'm tryin to figure out how to paste pics from the mag at the above link.

I have been playing with sparklers for ages now the latest experiment was to do several layers of aluminum foil and duct tape around two packets of sparklers and putting some arrow fletchs on them... the last one we tried went across three paddocks and nearly took out a shetland pony :-( we measured it the next day and it came up to 150 metres. However i have allways been looking for explosions... sidetracking slightly here but i actually got an explosion my bro welded up a pyramid the size of a soccer ball i filled it with sparkler dust dad wasnt very happy about the huge hole it left in our roof when it exploded and sent 6ml plate in the air for over 10 seconds that was the dummest thing ive done so im looking to down scale slightly with less shrapnel. So in conclusion Im after a recipe using roughly $30 worth of sparklers to explode keeping in mind that i live in Aus so some matierals are harder to come by. thanks everybody any feedback is supported so keep the comments flowing :-)

In an instructable I recently published (How to pick up women online), I have discussed how to make use of Second Life in order to beat Approach Anxiety, to perfect some pickup techniques, and to improve conversation. I know of a few second life players who have made use of the game in order to overcome their fears, insecurities and phobias, and to widen their horizons. It seems to me 3D virtual worlds offer a tremendous opportunity to acquire real life skills (for instance I also know people who have used second life to perfect a language). I was wondering if anyone could think of similar uses for second life, and ideas on how to implement them.

They are just four letters L-I-F-E...Based on just these letters,is life that short indeed? No...it is just a short word ,but the meaning of it is not that short,moreover it's quite long. Can someone tell me what does life mean? I think i know,or at least i will try to explain as i see it and as far as i have experienced it till now. Everyone says that life is short...but do you know anything else that lasts longer than this? Actually,life is the longest experience full of most unknown surprises that we find ourselves in while we are breathing. Its the longest experience we are part of without having the chance of taking or leaving it. Life is the hardest exam and the only one in which you can not cheat even if you try. It is the theater we all are actors of,where everything happens in front of our eyes,around us and most of times suddenly it takes our breath away. Breathing does not mean we are leaving a life. Breathing helps us understand and realize that we all have reasons that keep us alive day by day. Do i have reasons?! Of course, i do! I do have my own reasons for still breathing. It is maybe only one,maybe one hundred,maybe more or less than this. I do not really know how many reasons i have,but it does not matter. I may not see these reasons,but sometimes i do feel what i am still breathing for. I can feel why i am looking up at the stars every night. I can feel the reason i am walking on the streets every day. Everything that happens has a specific reason. My most important one is love. That is the love i have for my life i am living and for everyone who is part of my world. I see it as the stongest feeling that makes you live in Earth touching the sky. Another reason of living my life is hope. The hope for a better day,and for a successful future makes me breath deeply. The belief of having a power to make a difference even if someone do not and will not understand me keeps me alive. The beauty of life makes me wake up happily every morning and enjoy the new day that comes. My stubbornness makes me fight for everything i want each day. I am enjoying every moment of my life. I am still breathing because i do not feel lonely,but that does not mean my life is depended on anyone's . Nobody's perfect,we all make mistakes,but not everyone regrets. That happens just because some people still think about how much fun they had while making the mistake. I am open to anyone that gives me advice,but as i do not judge anyone for anything they have done ,i do not want to be judged also. It is me and that is my life and i have my own reasons for everything i do. While most of people will be commenting on my desicions about my life,i will be waving them from the stars.....

Well have you? I did write a big long thing about the four times I have, but me computer crashed so I can't be arsed to type it out again. Anyway the other day at work, I'm a bin man(garbage man)by the way, me and another crewmen were working on the back of the dust cart when my bin came back down so I turned to put it back on the curb, as I did my mate still had his back to the traffic, I saw a big nasty van screeching towards us, so I grabbed him by his neck/face and dived on the grass verge, narrowly missing getting squashed to death by two pieces of machinery, which smashed together quite horrifically. Theirs no doubt that if I was stood were I was I wouldn't be typing this now. Anyone else had something like this? I had a load of pyro stories but as I said I can't be arsed to type um out again.
