Philosophy, Quotes, and other Univerisal Nonsense

Postby WhiteinBlack on Tue Feb 14, 2012 1:50 pm

After watching a particular video of a particular person crazy, but true, thought processes, I thought about the meaning, power, and potential of words and quotes from certain people in history as well as those anonnyomous individuals that make valid points while controlling my fits of hilarity. So, I decide, "Hey, let's talk about it!"

So post a quote, anyone or your own, or something philly-silly that you, another, or others are discussing and we can talk about it as well. Expand our wisdom of this mudball in an everfalling void of space we live on! WOOT!

Oh, here's the video that gave me the idea.

Mwahaha...you will regret this thread good sir, for I too have a stash of philosophy questions!

And in a similar vein to that video no less!

-----------------------------------------------------------

If you choke a Smurf, what color does it turn?

Is it OK to use the AM radio after noon?

What do chickens think we taste like?

What do people in China call their good plates?

What do you call a male ladybug?

What hair color do they put on the driver's license of a bald man?

When dog food is new and improved tasting, who tests it?

Why didn't Noah swat those two mosquitoes?

Why do they sterilize the needle for lethal injections?

Why doesn't glue stick to the inside of the bottle?

Why is it called tourist season if we can't shoot at them?

Why do you need a driver's license to buy liquor when you can't drink and drive?

Why isn't phonetic spelled the way it sounds?

Why are there Interstates in Hawaii?

Why are there flotation devices in the seats of planes instead of parachutes?

Why are cigarettes sold at gas stations where smoking is
prohibited?

Have you ever imagined a world without hypothetical situations?

How does the guy who drives the snowplow get to work?

----------------------------------------------------

This is a mere sample of what I have, would you like to see more?

And let's not forget this quote from Twilight

From a poster nearby (in dutch, so had to leave some out and might contain some bad formulations):

- If swimming makes you thin, what are whales doing wrong?
- Why do you need to make an appointment to meet a seer?
- If today it's 0 degrees and tomorrow it'll be twice as cold, how cold will it be?
- Why do people immediatly believed it when you tell them there are 400 trillion stars in the sky, but when you tell them the window-still has been painted, they need to touch it?
- Why is there artificial lemon in lemonade, but is there real lemon in detergent?
- If a vehicle is travelling at the speed of light, what happens when the headlights are lit?
- At what speed do things get darker?
- Why does your nose run and your feet smell?
- If a schizophrenic person threatens to commit suicide, can he be persecuted?
- Why does a 24/7 shop have locks on the door?
- How does a shopkeeper selling shelves prevent his shop from looking empty?
- If the black box of an airplane is indestructable, why don't they make the planes out of the same material?
- If most accidents happen within 5 miles from home, why doesn't everybody go live 10 miles away?
- If rabbit feet bring luck, then what happened to the rabbit?
- What do sheep count when they can't sleep?
- If bread always lands with the butter side down and a cat always lands on its feet, what happens when you put butter on a cat's back?
- If you try to fail and to succeed in doing so, then what did you do?

And that was about half ^^;

So yeah, no actual philosophical topics came to mind, so I figured I mind as well acquiesce to the stated request.

This one can actually be answered by science

_________________________________________________________________________________________

Since everyone else seems to be doing Universial Nonsense, I'll supply the quotes and other such things:

Every experience is a paradox in that it means to be absolute, and yet is relative; in that it somehow always goes beyond itself and yet never escapes itself.
-T. S. Eliot

Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind
-Albert Einstein

I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.
-Mother Teresa

Good judgment comes from expierience, and expierience comes from bad judgment
-Unknown

It's weird not to be weird.
-John Lennon

The Universe is very, very big.
It also loves a paradox. For example, it has some extremely strict rules.
Rule number one: Nothing lasts forever.
Not you or your family or your house or your planet or the sun. It is an absolute rule. Therefore when someone says that their love will never die, it means that their love is not real, for everything that is real dies.

Rule number two: Everything lasts forever.
-Craig Ferguson, Between the Bridge and the River

I never said most of the things I said.
-Yogi Berra

All generalizations are false, including this one.
-Albert Einstein

If this statment is true, then Germany borders China
-Curry's Paradox

Is the word "heterological", meaning "not applicable to itself," a heterological word?
-Grelling-Nelson paradox (varient of Russell's paradox)

INDEED!!!
Vehicle can not travel at the speed equal to or exceeding C. Period.
"WHAT IF IT'S AT LIKE 99.9999% C?"
Fine. Due to time dilation, from the vehicle's perspective, the light is traveling at the speed of light. Wacky, I know. From an outside perspective, the light does not get very far from the vehicle, as they're moving at a similar speed. But they can't know that, because they can't perceive the light.

I was saying even in a hypothetical scenario in which the car DID somehow travel at C (assuming infinite energy), then it can still be answered.

But yeah, basically what you just said, though if the car was indeed traveling at C it would have infinite mass, and therefore the entirty of the universe would be reduced to a singularity, but that's beside the point!
