What does "Tosser" mean applied to Newton? He was one of the most brilliant men to ever live. You Brits have some really neat expressions. I've missed this one I guess.

Not a very nice person. I've read quite a bit about him when I did my courses on astronomy and cosmology. There was this book in the college library. It was a biography called never at rest.

I'm as sure as I can be that Sir Isaac Newton is the cleverest human being that ever lived.

He was almost certainly autistic or something and possibly what we now call a savant. He had no social graces and was very ill-mannered, exceptionally pedantic, irritable and tetchy. He was though, brilliant.

So picture the scene:

He's in his first month at uni. He's 19 and his tutors give him a book to read. It's called Kepler's Optics. At the time, this was the hard book. It was the most difficult, abstruse mathematics/physics known.

Newton looked at his tutors and said, 'Yeah I read that, in my spare time. And as it happens, I've made these notes cos he got some stuff wrong. Now if you don't mind I've got bigger fish to fry."

How not to win friends and influence people.

In fact he did all his degree in his spare time. He spent most of his waking hours working out gravity and his laws of motion and optics and stuff. He also wasted his time. He was an alchemist.

Sir Edmund Haley asked him some really difficult question about the orbits of planets, owing to the inverse square law. Newton knew the answer off the top off his head. He had an habit of not writing stuff down or at least hiding it. This partly contributed to his clash with Leibniz over who wrote the Calculus first. It was Newton and Leibniz knew that really, but Newton couldn't prove it.

Even despite their drawn out and bitter dispute, Leibniz heaped praise on Newton.

Topic If a couple asked you into a threesome, would you do it?
Posted 13 Apr 2014 03:21

I have had a lot of girly threesomes, foursomes and moresomes and a few FFM threesomes.

However for hetero couples, I have heard where a threesome has led to break ups.

It is fun but you have to consider the possible fall out.

Topic A request for authors
Posted 06 Apr 2014 02:09

i want to request you please paste a appropriate picture with your each story which describes your drama which will be in your story.
i read some here which has this thing and i really feel more excitation and curiosity to read complete just now. its really better to just write a summary in words then a pic.

so this a request because it's totally on your hand.

please share here your all negative and positive thought on it. bs

thank you.

I try to do this with most of my stories.

When I get time, I might go back and add pictures to the others.

Topic Flight MH370 - What happened to it?
Posted 01 Apr 2014 13:26

I don't think they will ever find it or they would have done by now.

It would have been more honest if they had have said they didn't have a clue from the beginning, rather than stringing the relatives along.

If it's smashed up in the sea, it will be like looking for a needle in a rick.

I don't buy the terrorist theory or someone would have admitted liability by now.

It's a genuine mystery. I wish for the relatives that they could find out and give them closure, but somehow I think it's thousands of feet under the sea.

Topic Would you rather be liked, or respected?
Posted 01 Apr 2014 12:32

It's impossible to be liked by everyone you ever come across. There are people that I don't like, so it's a rather ridiculous notion (to me) to want to be liked by everyone.

I prefer respect. Well actually, I prefer not to be disrespected. There's a difference. There are people I can't stand, but I will be cordial and civil...or simply pretend they don't exist. And that's what I prefer in return. If you hate me or strongly (or weakly) dislike me, that's totally fine. But either be cordial/civil or pretend I don't exist. But do not disrespect me.

Very well put

Don't cut it off. I love this. I love the 19 year old woman who's studying physics. More women should study physics too. It's not a gender specific thing except where "The Old Boys Club" makes it one. That's finally breaking down now. I love all who THINK about this and consider all the infinity of possibilities. We need this. To make up our minds and not just blindly follow someone else's idea of "How it should be."

I love the word "Infinity". There exists the possibility of Jeff Goldblum's comment in Jurassic Park. "if it can happen, it will." If you think about that then there are absolutely no boundaries on what can exist.

For why it's so big? It's as big as we can see it so far. If the concept of inflation is true then the original creation and expansion could have been infinite. If so then we are seeing all of the light that has reached us since the creation about 14 billion years ago. And, if that's the case then are we the only one that ever happened? That's infinity.

It's all about using our minds. Thinking. Taking in all we can then deciding. For ourselves and not letting anyone tell us what to think.

In there is an infinity of possibilities then, right now, as you read this, we all exist in one of them.

I think I'll write more later. After I've read through the comments again.

I like physics, it's the maths that does my head in. But a lot of Einstein is pure thought. You can sort of do it without the maths. That's what Einstein did and then he knew he had to do the maths and he struggled with it but just worked hard. Unlike Newton who apparently did a lot of the calculations in his head! I would have loved to have met Newton but apparently he was a complete tosser. Just happened to be the cleverest human that ever lived.

Humans have been moving around for 30,000 years at least. It only became an issue once we decided to draw borders on the map. Everyone is the same inside. The outward differences are beautiful and to be celebrated. It's what makes us human.

Topic Why is the universe so big?
Posted 01 Apr 2014 04:59

Since I did my cosmology course and did more reading I have begun to understand this more, in as much as it can be understood.

In the early universe there was a time known as 'inflation' when the universe expanded faster than the speed of light. Dark energy has ensured that the expansion is increasing and the bigger it gets the more it expands. This energy overcomes the resistance of gravity, and why apparently it will expand infinitely.

It's so big, because the physics mean it has to be that way.

I guess only God knows why.

Topic Cover picture on stories?
Posted 01 Apr 2014 04:50

As someone who reads few stories, it's not a deal breaker for me, but I think it definitely adds something to the story. I like to chose nice cover photos for my stories, which are relevant to a character or the theme of the story

Topic do you believe in God?
Posted 01 Mar 2014 00:17

Yes, I do. When you consider everything, for there to be no God is more unbelievable.

I don't think he is a an old man with a long white beard, but there is some benevolent spirit that created everything using scientific principles that we are slowly discovering. For me evolution and creation go hand in hand. Maybe God is a woman but I suspect she transcends gender.

I can't say what physical or even ethereal form God takes, but I am sure he/she is there.

So, I hear you ask, if there is a God why do babies die and why is there floods and famine and murder?

My answer is that, as human beings we are flawed and constantly sin because sin is part of what we are. But we have choice that God gave us and we can chose to do good or bad. A God that could intervene and stop everything bad happening would make for a strange life, where we have no choice and no destiny. Many things that happen are forces of nature and we can do nothing to stop them. We must use our planet and our lives to make other people happy and love our fellow man and woman.
