You just made me remember this, always worth a chuckle. We can't get banned for memes nobody under 20 has ever heard of, right?

Anyway, the comparison to phlogiston is a tad misleading. Phlogiston was considered common knowledge, the only accepted explanation by a consensus of chemists. Dark matter is only one hypothesis for observed behaviours (measurements of which have also faced criticism) and is treated as such. There are certainly other candidates for it, including some reworking of Newtonian physics beyond special relativity. Physicists are not in a position to be authoritative when the theoretical value for the Cosmological constant is still off by over 100 orders of magnitude...

This doesn't strike me as particularly accurate, I can't imagine where in the production cycle of a burger all that water comes in, and the site on the image has absolutely no information backing it up, other than vague graphs. Is this just how much water a cow drinks?

How are they arriving at these figures? My assumption is that they're fudging something somewhere.

>There's a limited natural supply of fresh water

No there isn't. It falls from the fucking sky. There might be a limit in the rate it falls, but effectively the supply is infinite. Also there is the quite obvious detail that the water that is drunk drink is breathed, sweated and pissed out again so it isn't like it is being removed from the system.

Which is exactly the limiting factor. If you use water faster than it falls from the sky, you've got a drought. We can speed up the water cycle with desalination, but it's a lot more expensive than water conservation.

>>4525

>The UK doesn't have a major water problem

Not yet, but there are some very real concerns about localised drought due to climate change. We've made big gains over recent years in reducing leakage, but we're approaching the point of diminishing returns. Thames Water already operate a desalination plant at Beckton; it's only used intermittently and processes brackish water, but it does indicate the relative insecurity of water supplies in the south east.

Well lets look at what you've actually claimed and go from there...

>The laughably incompetent assassins of the world's most nefarious security state (completely subverting our rather bloated GCHQ) - run simultaneously by a decentralised "Wild East" oligarchy and the iron will of that modern day Napoleon, Putin -

>The laughably incompetent assassins of the world's most nefarious security state (completely subverting our rather bloated GCHQ)

GCHQ is not omnipotent and this isn't a group of eskimo teenagers plotting a jihad on Facebook. The Russian agents understand how to use secure methods of communication. It would be like claiming that 9/11 couldn’t happen because the US air force exists.


>run simultaneously by a decentralised "Wild East" oligarchy and the iron will of that modern day Napoleon, Putin -

I'm not quite sure what you are trying to claim here, it is almost like you are trying to say the attack couldn't have happened because it is impossible for the Russian state to exist and operate even though it plainly does as we see it every day. Those 2 ideas are not as contradictory as you think that is basically how the Roman Empire operated for hundreds of years.

Suppose you have a cube of width x. Increase one dimension by dx and the volume will increase by (x^2)dx. Doing this on on all three dimensions will increase the volume by 3(x^2)dx. Integrate and we get x^3 as the formula for volume. Is this right?

More examples.

The surface area of a sphere is 4pi(r^2). An increase in radius by dr will increase the volume by 4pi(r^2)dr. Integrate and we get (4/3)pi(r^3) as the formula for volume.

The circumference of a circle is (2pi)r. Integrate and we get area = pi(r^2).

Am I doing it right?

The volume of the cross-section of an n-dimensional cone is kw^(n-1), where w is the width and k some constant. Integrate this over the length of the cone to give V = kAl/n where A is the volume of the base and l the length.

The case k=1, A=h, n=2 gives hl/2 as the area of a triangle.

Right?

Energy conservation only applies over small regions of constant spacetime.

So if we had the technology to manipulate spacetime we could create energy from nothing.

There are probably beings out there somewhere already doing this.

>Energy conservation applies across any region of spacetime

Conversation of momentum is space symmetry. Conservation of energy is time symmetry.

Because the universe is expanding space and time are not symmetrical and these things aren't conserved at the large scales. They are only approximately conserved over small regions of space and time like a small region of the Earth is approximately flat.

Bend a region of spacetime up enough in the right way and you can create or destroy any amount of energy or momentum you want.
