Frontiers

Star Trek V is a small part of the space frontier, but it's been a while since that movie came out so I assume we've finished exploring it by now.

Sibling-in-Law

ו', 08/31/2018 - 06:00
FYI, it turns out "...because I haven't figured out whether he would be my brother-in-law or not" does NOT qualify as a "reason why these two should not be wed."

Begging the Question

ד', 08/29/2018 - 06:00
At least we can all agree on the enormity of this usage.

Hazard Symbol

Supreme Court Bracket

ו', 08/24/2018 - 06:00
My bracket was busted in the first round; I had Massachusetts v. Connecticut in the final, probably in a case over who gets to annex Rhode Island.

Edgelord

ד', 08/22/2018 - 06:00
If you study graphs in which edges can link more than two nodes, you're more properly called a hyperedgelord.

Dark Matter Candidates

ב', 08/20/2018 - 06:00
My theory is that dark matter is actually just a thin patina of grime covering the whole universe, and we don't notice it because we haven't thoroughly cleaned the place in eons.

Equations

ו', 08/17/2018 - 06:00
 The same as all fluid dynamics equations, but with the 8 and 23 replaced with the permittivity and permeability of free space, respectively.

Repair or Replace

ד', 08/15/2018 - 06:00
Just make sure all your friends and family are out of the car, or that you've made backup friends and family at home.

Word Puzzles

ב', 08/13/2018 - 06:00
Eno's storied aria was once soloed by Judge Lance Ito on the alto oboe at Ohio's AirAsia Arena.

Pie Charts

ו', 08/10/2018 - 06:00
If you can't get your graphing tool to do the shading, just add some clip art of cosmologists discussing the unusual curvature of space in the area.

Voting Software

ד', 08/08/2018 - 06:00
There are lots of very smart people doing fascinating work on cryptographic voting protocols. We should be funding and encouraging them, and doing all our elections with paper ballots until everyone currently working in that field has retired.

Disaster Movie

ב', 08/06/2018 - 06:00
Really, they'd be rushing around collecting revisions to go into the next scheduled quarterly public data update, not publishing them immediately, but you have to embellish things a little for Hollywood.

Complex Numbers

ו', 08/03/2018 - 06:00
I'm trying to prove that mathematics forms a meta-abelian group, which would finally confirm my suspicions that algebreic geometry and geometric algebra are the same thing.

Lightning Distance

The index of radio refraction does have a lot of variation, which might throw off your calculations, so you can also look at the difference in brightness between the visible flash and more-attenuated UV and x-rays.

Heat Index

ב', 07/30/2018 - 06:00
The heat index is calculated via looking up the "effective temperature" in a table of air temperature and humidity values, and then adding a bunch more degrees because it feels WAY hotter than that.

Peer Review

ו', 07/27/2018 - 06:00
 A Review of Preprint Repositories and Author Willingness to Email PDF Copies for Free" has also been rejected, but nice try.

Light Hacks

ד', 07/25/2018 - 06:00
 Wait for an advanced civilization to be briefly distracted, then sneak in and construct a slightly smaller Dyson sphere inside theirs.

Y-Axis

ב', 07/23/2018 - 06:00
We've also developed the semi-semi-log scale, where the Y-axis for the left half of the graph is a log scale but on the right half it isn't.

Sports Champions

ו', 07/20/2018 - 06:00
For a long time, people thought maybe Usain Bolt was the one for running, until the 2090s and the incredible dominance of Derek Legs.
