I once made a pilsner that was over 13% ABV, I messed up the recipe. It tasted fine but smelt like the rear end of a very poorly badger. My mate put a radioactive warning sticker on the barrel. But, it still got drunk.

Indonesia is in my list for visiting since a boy, when i studied world atlas, with no phones, internet, only books and play outside. This region with so many islands attracted my attention. Even my bigger daughter visited Philippines on International Mathematics Competition. Shame on me  :D

That's a doctor's/biologist's issue, but blood without the pump will become jam!
On the other hand a pump without liquid is useless, therefore one needs the other to function properly!
Or not :-DTo kick things off: Did you know that it's a myth that the heart is a pump that pushes blood around the body? The force required to continually push fluid through x km of capillaries is way beyond the capabilities of any of the body's muscles. Just try clenching your fist continuously for more than 5 minutes and see how tired you get. The human embryo begins with circulating blood, in the middle of which the rudimentary heart develops. Our blood makes our hearts beat. Not the other way around.

So what does anyone reckon about my heart theory? I figured somebody somewhere would want to argue! :D

Could be, you sure about that?

Hmmm, check that:
"As in the adult, survival of the developing embryo depends on the circulation of blood to maintain homeostasis and a favorable cellular environment. In response to this need, the cardiovascular system makes its appearance early in development and reaches a functional state long before any other major organ system. Incredible as it seems, the primitive heart begins to beat regularly early in the fourth week following fertilization."

Here's a thought experiment. You hold a stick in one hand, and 'swish' it - move its tip in an arc. The top end of the stick is moving twice (?) as fast as the middle of the stick. The bottom end of the stick where you're holding it - the fulcrum - isn't moving at all.

OK. Now take a very very long stick and swish it. The top end of the stick is now travelling very very fast. But what happens if the stick is long enough that 1 cm below the top is travelling at the speed of light? The top can't be travelling faster than the speed of light. Can it? It must be travelling at the speed of light too.

So what happens to the stick?

Sorry if this is a physics chestnut. I dropped out of my degree a long time back... :)

No part of any stick, long or short, can reach the speed of light, when speed increases in that level, the mass is becoming infinite.
"There is no stick!"

Why you want to reach light speed, you want to go to the Orbital Loop faster? :-D
