    Wise in the ways of science... Bah! Kinetic energy does not equal mass times velocity squared. It is proportional only; and is in fact equal to one half the mass times the velocity squared. ;) :lol:

    Well even so, when you consider that the last person who asked this question was praising another for insinuating that a witch and a duck both float, so therefore weigh the same, it's rather hard to go backward from there.

    Heh. Yeah, I was pretty sloppy in defining kinetic energy. But then, since heavy wet snow is sloppy too, at least I was being consistent! (There's a thread of logic in there somewhere. :D )

    As long as there's no carols and unreasonably joyous people, I'm okay with this. :p

    Well, this year we've got the lights AND snow again. I'm not sure yet if the snow will be staying, though. This script should be lighter on the CPUs, but it's not as realistic as the one that we couldn't get to work without issues.

    The lights are up again, only a bit late this year due to STUFF. Site pages have a festive layout as well, but you'll likely need to hit Ctrl+F5 there in order to see it.

    Oh, and it's snowing too!

    Wow, really late this year, pesky real life keeps getting in the way! The forums are decorated, with the main site to follow in the next minutes.
