Why thank you mr physicist for clearing that, because you reeeaaallly have to study mathematics and chaos in depth in order to understand important principals such as shirtwoot, comedy, quantum mechanics, and the butterfly effect. hahah well to be honest it may actually come in handy for some of those things.

Its def easier to approach it with a given velocity and angle to determine distance traveled. Way easier to approach the angle at know release points with know velocities

Re: Multiplying Rabbits



You know, I like this shirt alot. It's a bunny that actually looks like a rabbit and not just an anime cat with longer ears. It's got a "joke" that you can't just swap in some other cute animal with. It looks well drawn and is interesting to look at.

I love how they are not all identical, and I like that you can see some of their feet.

A cute bunny shirt I don't hate, imagine that.

amazing design, but ian malcolm proclaimed himself a "chaotician," not a "chaosatician." sorry to nitpick, but it's jurassic park man! and like i said, great design!

R = Dominant trait - Red Shell*

Want.




Actually, the "R" gene exhibits what is called incomplete dominance. It would not be correct to say that R is the "dominant" trait or that r is the "recessive trait" for a red shell phenotype, otherwise the Rr genotype would also give a red shell phenotype. With incomplete dominance, one gene of each type gives a third phenotype.

Now the only thing you have to accept is that mixing red paint and blue paint will give you green, not purple. :D

This is my favorite of the phi designs, and of the derby in general, by a long shot. It's remarkably elegant.

novastarj wrote:Honestly though, it's irrelevant to ask "why do blue and red genes together make green?" Genetic inheritance is incredibly complicated topic, and the simple answer of "combining two colors makes a combination of those two colors" is clearly overly simplistic in the case of Mario Kart shells.

We could be seeing a case of incomplete dominance (rather than codominance), where certain aspects of each shell color carry through when the two are combined, but not the colors as a whole (only the hues necessary to create green).

It could be environmental factors at work, think in terms of a phenotype rather than a genotype. Perhaps the green shells were a healthy purple at birth, but something to do with the pigment as it interacts with the race tracks turns them into a shade of green later in life.

Perhaps even we are seeing a polygenic trait here, such as eye color, which is dramatically effected by outside genes as well (though if this is the case the Punnett Square is woefully incomplete).

Regardless, simply because the gene inheritance seems illogical to the lay observer does not mean it lacks an underlying rationale.

Oh, and GMV.

Actually Disney bought The Muppets in 2004, BUT did not get licensing rights to any Muppets who had appeared on Sesame Street as they were already owned by the Sesame Street Workshop. Jim Henson company still maintains the rights to Fraggles, so they are not Disney either.

I don't think this would count as text-only because the text itself is arranged in a way that creates a "graphic element," if you get what I mean. Like a text-as-art thing.

I've got it! When you take fire in a (relatively) cool form, it's red (as opposed to blue or white). So, the red represents fire. Now, when you combine certain chemicals (and chemicals are always blue vials. It is physically impossible for a chemical to be anything other than a blue vial) and light them, you get green fire. Ergo, fire + chemicals = green fire (read: red + blue = green). And how does fire tie into a Mario reference? Well, that should be obvious.

Woot has word filters that trigger on swearing, words that are overused, and sometimes just totally random words.

If you click reply on his post you can see that "wheat grass" = "l.a.m.e"

They change the words every once in a while to keep things amusing.

There is no way my bird brain can do it. But, can anybody out there come up with the formula that accounts for all the variables?

Hey thanks, Would have had it up sooner but my wedding anniversary got in the way. As for shirt color it could be the kelly green, olive green or Brown maybe a Royal blue as well would work. Reason for the green though is that it makes feel more like they are running across a grassy field. Hopefully even though it was subbed a bit late, that it does well.

interesting derby idea.

Also, Boric Acid makes fire burn green. That's where the "combine certain chemicals" comes in.
