why do people do this sort of thing

Because better late than never :^)

Personally I don't understand the types of people who think anyone who doesn't share their opinion on something is out to get them or something.

Why many of the people I knew from school still can't spell 'definitely'. It's not a difficult word. Many of them spell it 'defiantly'...which has a different meaning. They probably don't notice because their spell checker doesn't alert them to the error.

I catch myself spelling it "definately" a lot. Maybe because I say it like that irl.

Why my brother thinks its mandatory to take a 45-60 minute showers.

Because of "mandatory business".

I take 30 minute showers because it makes my muscles feel good after a day of work.


What I don't understand is why the HOV (High Occupancy Vehicle) lanes in Houston aren't two actual lanes. When there's an accident, it clogs miles of road at a time.

This:
h(t)=h(o)=exp(-RRPgt/2Dn)

This equation has cropped up to describe the rebound of land after an Ice sheet has been removed.

h(t) is the height after a time, t, has elapsed.
h(o) is the initial height

R is the radius of the depression/icesheet.
P is the density of the asthenosphere/rock.
g is the acceleration of gravity at earth's surface.
n is viscosity.

I don't know what D is though, and when I am rearranging to solve for viscosity this means I have a term of D left over in my answer.

I tried rearranging for its units and I get Metres Seconds; what does this represent?
edit: I think my previous assertion was spurious and that the units should be metres, so it must represent a depth. If anyone could explain this to me, that'd be good though.

Is "Dn" possibly the change in n?

No [I am assuming the fluid mantle has a homogenous viscosity]. I asked some other people and they told me it was the depth of the mantle.

I've looked through my notes on the subject and the same variable appears in Archimedes, as Pressure=g[density]D, where D is a level at which pressure is equal.

Which is why I thought it was the depth of depression under the ice sheet, but if it's the depth of the mantle that is a much greater value. The notes define it as 'some level' in the mantle, which isn't very helpful.

People who say 'it's an acquired taste', isn't that just drinking something you dislike the taste of until you get used to it?

Well, I didn't like wine or beer at 15 y/o, now I think it's the best thing ever

Yes...your point is? x3
