Will a sponsor's logo, like McDonald's, soon replace the Queen on British stamps if the price is right?
Asked By DanDan the shithouse man,Last Answer By Ena Sharples At 2011.02,1 Answers

Her Majesty's Government is in talks with Buckingham Palace after realising that the legislation paving the way for the Royal Mail to be sold off failed explicitly to guarantee the Queen's head would remain on the stamps.
The bill gives Queen Elizabeth a veto over any use of her image but does not insist that her head is shown, as per tradition.

Are there more people with genius IQs living in china then there are people of any kind living in the U.S.?

This is a claim made by the character of Mark Zuckerburg in the opening scene of the movie "The Social Network." I was immediately suspicious of the claim, but perhaps someone can show me where I'm wrong.

A.) There are an estimated 1,335,087,599 people living in china currently. (http://www.geohive.com/)

B.) A genius IQ is a debated threshold, but even liberal estimates put it at 140. An IQ of 140 is about 1/261 people. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genius#IQ_tests) (http://wilderdom.com/intelligence/IQWhatScoresMean.html)

C.) so take the 1,335,087,599 people in china and divide it by 261 to get the number of people with a genius IQ, which equals about 5,115,279.

D.) There are about 312,516,602 people living in the United States. (http://www.geohive.com/)

C.) 312,516,692 > 5,115,279.........doesn't seem to work.

D.) In order for it to "work", 1 in every 4 people would need to be a "genius."

The only "unknown" is if 1 per 261 people in China has a genius IQ or if this number is greater....but it seems unlikely that this would be 1 in every 4.

Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.

How can that flow of energy through an ecosystem be depicted?
Asked By Karon C,Last Answer By Observer in MD At 2009.12,1 Answers

There is an entire branch of basic ecology that studies this, called "community energetics" or "ecosystem energetics". This is where the concept of trophic levels comes from. The sun causes primary production in the plants of the first trophic level, and some of the energy captured by primary producers passes to the next highest trophic level (consumers) when a plant-eating animal eats a plant. And so on up the food chain or food web. This is basic "Ecology 101" material. The trophic levels are often depicted as a pyramid, because the amount of biomass in higher trophic levels is less than at the lower trophic levels.

Depicting the energy flow itself (instead of the biomass) is often done with arrows and labels. For very elaborate energy analysis diagrams, see the book Energy and Society by Howard T. Odum.

How come nobody ever questions why Satan is always depicted as a male?
Asked By Colonel Reb,Last Answer By Quelarari At 2010.10,1 Answers

Earlier today there were a slew of questions about whether God was male, female, genderless, and whether people should be offended, and other similar things.

However, something occured to me. Why does no one ever question why Satan is always a man, or at least, depicted as one?

Jobs British people won't do?

So according to the pro-open-borders crowd, we "need" mass immigration because British people "won't do" certain jobs.

We are, supposedly, either all highly educated, successful blue collar workers who won't get their hands dirty - or lazy, stella drinking, chav scroungers and no British person would do manual or low paid work anymore.

Funny that. My bins have just been emptied by local Welsh boys. Our road is currently being dug up and the builders are all Welsh. When I was in hospital after having my baby, the cleaner came into clean my room and she was . . guess what . . . local and Welsh. (Did a smashing job too, the toilet was shining!), My neighbour (local, Welsh) wipes elderly peoples' bums in a care home, as did my partner's (Welsh) ex girlfriend. My partner (white English) drives vans for minimum wage. My brother (Welsh) is a music student who works in a carpet warehouse part time.

Fancy telling these people that they "don't exist"?
