Can he tell us why God hates amputees?
Yo, put that in your pipe and smoke it.  Quit ragging on my Lord.

I saw that video the other day and it's great.  I highly recommend the Vsauce channel.  Very cool videos.

This thread is about lab-grown dicks, not some mincy, old, British poof of an actor. 

Let's get back on topic, please.

He talked a little fast for me to grasp everything, but apparently a shadow weighs less than the light surrounding it.   8)

Going off my (sort of) good memory the video was more about how much less an object weighs when not in light versus in light.  I guess doing some math the city of Chicago weighs about 400lbs more on a sunny day.

He also did some discussion on faster than light travel not being possible and the speed of light being different through different mediums.

It's all that deep dish pizza and barbeque they serve at the Taste in summertime. ;D
Extraordinary claims of the bible don't even have ordinary evidence.

Kids aren't paying attention most of the time in science classes so it seems silly to get worked up over ID being taught in schools.
