    They're making a sequel.

    The sequel's in the can, I think. I enjoyed that movie, even though Eddie Murphy stole it from Art Buchwald, and you call the man "Ali," because that's what he wanted to be called. Period. Full stop.

    (Calling him "Clay" is like calling him "draft dodger." Just wrong.)

    Do you call all married women then who changed their names to their husband's by their maiden name? Lots of people change names for lots of reasons, it would be just rude not to call them by whatever name they've chosen for themselves, it's not like his family chose the name 'Clay' for themselves in the first place.

    There are a few of their songs I like well enough, but nothing more impressive than some of the decent '80's music, really, and some of that came from one-hit wonders.

    I've always loved classical music . It was what I heard at home and I grew to appreciate and love it. The Beatles however are for people my age a nostalgia thing, a time when we were kids. I don't dislike modern music, I usually like whatever is being played. I have no particular fondness for any music from any particular era nor do I think it's better than 'modern' music, which so many do.

    John Oliver is evidence that Americans do understand and appreciate sarcasm and irony.

    sigh indeed

    whats becoming obvious is your being dishonest, if your being honest about your qualification your just spewing out waffle to cover up your error or you are misleading about your qualification

    i said nothing about potential energy which just means that patronising diatribe just inconvenience million of electrons for no good reason

    SO, if we are conducting what could be an interesting and light chit chat in patronising way

    lets take Einstein's famous equation, not the field equations, there not nearly as famous e=mc2

    the subtext of that is not only is there a proportionality between mass and energy, they are in fact the same physical entity expressed in different units, in this case to avoid knuckle dragging, kinetic energy of the particles in joules and the rest mass of the object in KG


    so,,, e=mc2 clearly indicates, even to you, i hope, that if you increase the mass, it gives a higher level for energy ?

    if we transpose the formula to

    m=e/mc2

    then its just as clear if we increase the energy we all so increase the mass

    ergo the particles in the charged battery or the compressed spring have greater kinetic energy than the alliterative states and ergo the object has greater mass, a very very small amount more, i admit, but non the less its there

    now your not going to admit your error, that much is obvious so il dig out that vid lecture by an esteemed scientist who clearly has a greater knowledge and is better at explaining it than myself, though this may take some time to find

    I get that. There are definitely things from the 70's and 80's that I like only because they were what I listened to back then.

    You obviously have no clue what I’m doing there. This’ll help clear up any confusion...

    Actually I'm not confused, you clearly don't understand irony. Sigh.

    I was picking up a delivery today at a Ruby Tuesday's, and they had Mr. Roboto on. I still can't help singing along with that. I had that on cassette tape back in the day - wore out three of them, I listened to it so much.
