the next one would be funny if it wasnt so close to the truth (to the attitude of "us christians" that is):- - not sure what happened to tolerance
How sweet is that video! It reminded me of my childhood, when everything felt/tasted so freshOriginally Posted by 2020hindsight
I would like to take this opportunity to wish you 2020, your family, all the members of ASF and their families a merry Christmas and safe motoring my friends.
I love you all I do even if I sound unfriendly sometimes, I do that to make a point, not because I’m intolerant. I promise to do better next year
Lol, enjoy the break ng, dont worry you're still fresh - in every sense of the word lol. Merry Xmas indeed. PS I'll make this small print otherwise by the time we all wish ourselves merry xmas, there wont be any ASF memory left for the tradersOriginally Posted by new girl

Noirua, hope you let this one sit in this thread
I guess it falls under "etc " rather tham "videos paintings etc" - but there are a few messages, and I include a few in bold in the following brief extracts (which incidentally aren't necessarily in the same sequence here as in the Time article).:-
http://www.time.com/time/time100/poc...of_rela6e.html relativity , 5 pages, Professor Hawking, author of A Brief History of Time, occupies the Cambridge mathematics chair once held by Isaac Newton
top page 4. :- General relativity completely changed the discussion of the origin and fate of the universe. A static universe could have existed forever or could have been created in its present form at some time in the past. On the other hand, if galaxies are moving apart today, they must have been closer together in the past. About 15 billion years ago, they would all have been on top of one another and their density would have been infinite. According to the general theory, this Big Bang was the beginning of the universe and of time itself. ……..
bottom of page 4:- When the Nazis came to power in Germany in 1933, Einstein left the country and renounced his German citizenship. He spent the last 22 years of his life at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, N.J. The Nazis launched a campaign against "Jewish science" and the many German scientists who were Jews (their exodus is part of the reason Germany was not able to build an atom bomb). Einstein and relativity were principal targets for this campaign. When told of publication of the book One Hundred Authors Against Einstein, he replied, Why 100? If I were wrong, one would have been enough.
After World War II, he urged the Allies to set up a world government to control the atom bomb. He was offered the presidency of the new state of Israel in 1952 but turned it down. "Politics is for the moment," he once wrote, "while...an equation is for eternity." The equations of general relativity are his best epitaph and memorial. They should last as long as the universe.bottom page 1:- This required abandoning the idea that there is a universal quantity called time that all clocks measure. Instead, everyone would have his own personal time. The clocks of two people would agree if they were at rest with respect to each other but not if they were moving. This has been confirmed by a number of experiments, including one in which an extremely accurate timepiece was flown around the world and then compared with one that had stayed in place. If you wanted to live longer, you could keep flying to the east so the speed of the plane added to the earth's rotation. However, the tiny fraction of a second you gained would be more than offset by eating airline meals. top page 2.. Einstein's postulate that the laws of nature should appear the same to all freely moving observers was the foundation of the theory of relativity, so called because it implies that only relative motion is important. Its beauty and simplicity were convincing to many scientists and philosophers. But there remained a lot of opposition. Einstein had overthrown two of the Absolutes (with a capital A) of 19th century science: Absolute Rest as represented by the ether, and Absolute or Universal Time that all clocks would measure. Did this imply, people asked, that there were no absolute moral standards, that everything was relative? ……
page 2:- The equivalence of mass and energy is summed up in Einstein's famous equation E=mc2, probably the only physics equation to have recognition on the street.
Among the consequences of this law is that if the nucleus of a uranium atom fissions (splits) into two nuclei with slightly less total mass, a tremendous amount of energy is released. In 1939, with World War II looming, a group of scientists who realized the implications of this persuaded Einstein to overcome his pacifist scruples and write a letter to President Roosevelt urging the U.S. to start a program of nuclear research. This led to the Manhattan Project and the atom bomb that exploded over Hiroshima in 1945. Some people blame the atom bomb on Einstein because he discovered the relation between mass and energy. But that's like blaming Newton for the gravity that causes airplanes to crash. Einstein took no part in the Manhattan Project and was horrified by the explosion.Yet more evidence that Hitler's maniacal obsession with the Jews cost him the war.page 3…:- In 1913, Einstein and Grossmann wrote a paper in which they put forward the idea that what we think of as gravitational forces are just an expression of the fact that space-time is curved. However, because of a mistake by Einstein (who was quite human and fallible), they weren't able to find the equations that related the curvature of space-time to the mass and energy in it.
Einstein continued to work on the problem in Berlin, undisturbed by domestic matters and largely unaffected by the war, until he finally found the right equations, in November 1915. Einstein had discussed his ideas with the mathematician David Hilbert during a visit to the University of Gottingen in the summer of 1915, and Hilbert independently found the same equations a few days before Einstein. Nevertheless, as Hilbert admitted, the credit for the new theory belonged to Einstein. It was his idea to relate gravity to the warping of space-time. It is a tribute to the civilized state of Germany in this period that such scientific discussions and exchanges could go on undisturbed even in wartime. What a contrast to 20 years later!
The new theory of curved space-time was called general relativity to distinguish it from the original theory without gravity, which was now known as special relativity. It was confirmed in spectacular fashion in 1919, when a British expedition to West Africa observed a slight shift in the position of stars near the sun during an eclipse. Their light, as Einstein had predicted, was bent as it passed the sun. Here was direct evidence that space and time are warped, the greatest change in our perception of the arena in which we live since Euclid wrote his Elements about 300 B.C.
As for asking "does this mean that morals are also relative?" – doh… since when do moral standards rely on speed, clocks etc – although I concede some are warped.
But we all have to agree with the big bang I would have thought (or something so close to that that the difference makes no change to the argument) - the evidence is overwhelming.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sl7sV98QgfE&NR modern day robin hoods, give this one 1/10 - no moral to the story - just idiots with a press (?) gotta feelin that genuine robin hoods would be giving to charity instead.
http://www.holylemon.com/LostFalseTeeth.html ... give this 9/10 - but lol, I'm still not sure what the moral is. - brush your original teeth i guess
