  12. T-Fox, T-Bert, T-Man...I appear to have spawned a lot of children on SSMB! I imagine they are akin to the Koopa Kids =)

  22. A great question! So time does exist - it is definitely a dimension as some others have said, and is, I think, quite a natural dimension when you come to think of space-time. I like to think of time in a 3-d graph, where say one axis is x, one is both y and z (in some combination, doesn't matter), and the other is time. No matter how stationary we think we are, we aren't - we're on a spinning sphere, orbiting a sun, orbiting a galaxy, orbiting in a local cluster etc...so in essence, time can be used to define the location of an object, at any time. With regards to the time standards we have defined, they are arbitrary - we simply use a unit of time we can conceive - for example there would be no point in measuring the time it takes to boil a kettle in units of the life of a star (millions of billions of years) as it's not something to conceptualise easily. In my work I use some odd units like Mega-electronVolts (MeV - about 10 trillionth of a volt) and Angstroms (10 billionth of a meter) - these are microscopic values, but because I work on the nuclear level, it's easier to say "the atomic radius is about 5 angstroms" than say "it's 0.0000000005m". As with most of physics "It's all relative". Here's some other questions I think about: Is time linear? I.e. is time a straight line? Does it speed up or slow down in ways we can't observe because we live in one of the dimensions of time? We observe perception of time vary in special relativity, so is our perception of time affected by our motion? Could it be circular? Is time smooth or quantified? What i mean by this is, does time smoothly change, or are there "packets of time" (quanta if you will), so you could effectively break time down into small steps, like you can with energy (look up Planck's constant). Can time move backwards? The legendary hypothesised particle the Tachyon apparently moves backwards through time - what would a universe look like that is moving backwards in time? How is time different in parallel universes? If the multiverse theory is correct, then it could be possible for time to be fundamentally changed in other universes i.e. it moves faster, it could change rate (see above with "is time linear?"). Got to love Physics =3 T

    Arashi no Yoru Ni

    I'd have thought the Wolf would have gotten around to watching this some time ago! I watched this some time back (subbed). I think it's an interesting tale centring around "forbidden love", where I think the state of the relationship (race, creed, sexuality, religion) can be interpret to whatever the watcher wants, with all of the conflicts surrounding that - for example, the wolves see the relationship as something that is totally unforgivable to the point of it being punishable by death; the other side of the coin being that even the goats see any relationship with others as totally taboo. I laughed at your "bromance" comment Wolfy - I totally think this was written to that extent in that you can interpret their relationship as being almost sexual with the obvious masculine / feminine characters; on the other hand, one could easily have been written as a female and you'd probably still have the same level of awkwardness. This is the one thing I love about animé though, it doesn't seem to have many issues when confronting any subject matter. While I probably wouldn't watch it again (not enough robots for my liking =3) I certainly didn't find it a bad movie; the animation style was certainly one I've not seen before. If you enjoyed it Wolfy, I'd definitely suggest watching the sub - from just start-stopping there, it sounds like the voices are much different to the original - dunno if any dialogue has been substantially changed either.
