The Remi Review Episode 20 – Special Relativity

January 14, 2013

Einstein Special Relativity, quick and easy. Things are never as complicated as we’re led to believe. Nerds candy. Higgs Boson/ God Particle. Quantum Mechanics. Would the frequency of lightwaves from the sun create a ‘beat’ if slowed down enough? Also featuring audio from the camera’s mic. Yea! Something happened with the good audio and it is kaput.

Fixing Prices and Everything Else

February 11, 2010


Planned obsolescence as an industry standard is price fixing. Its the legal, hidden equivalent to retailers jacking their prices in unison. Purchases: remember its not just the price, but how much you’re getting. Take something like dish soap. The water and container aren’t of any use to you, so lets assume when you buy a container of dish soap you are really just after a quantity of soap ingredients. (more…)

Heat

December 8, 2009



What is “heat” exactly? What are we referring to? The Wikipedia page on heat is unsure. On the left the scientists use the verb “to heat” depicting the transfer of thermal energy from one thing to another, but on the right the flashy photo describes “heat from the sun” as though “heat” were a thing to be passed.

The Primacy of Physics

August 26, 2009


Everything relies on physics. It is the forefront of human knowledge and discovery. The deepest study into understanding our universe is the study of physics, after all, we’re in a physical universe. (more…)

Working an Ethical Job

May 5, 2009



A very small percentage of the global population is engaged in fulfilling humanity’s needs while at work. Engineers are drawing up faster breaking cell phones, mathematicians assess market data, artists make commercials, philosophers become lawyers, and scientists design make-up for dogs. (more…)

Unconventional Beats Keep Rolling on Triangular Wheels!

March 21, 2009





I saw something on Discovery once that blew me away. They had a triangular object that could work exactly like a wheel. They placed two of these rounded triangles on a table spaced apart with a flat board laid on top. To my amazement the board could be pulled back and forth on top of the rolling triangles and had no up or down movement. (more…)

Stem Cell Research

March 6, 2009



So now they can create stem cells from human skin cells eliminating the controversial use of embryos. Sure, sure, i suppose it is still controversial to play god and design human body parts. Embryos were a real pain in the ass to acquire, now they can just use an ass. Oooh, or here’s a tip on where to obtain the new resource- cosmetic surgery clinics. Some wealthy socialites extra face skin might actually do some good for someone. >

Would you drown in a pool full of Jello?

February 17, 2009



When i was a kid i often imagined the amazing things i would do with the oodles of money made from working a real job. One thrill i envisioned was filling my swimming pool with Jello and going for a dip. Sounds like fun, but i’m fairly certain i would wind up dead. (more…)

Building Energy Conservation

January 19, 2009

Live in a cold climate, a common cityscape has tall buildings shooting steam up into the sky during extreme cold to vent pressure in their heating systems. Solutions? Build a green roof, seal the structure in for winter, and heat it with the excess steam during cold snaps. You could also process and feed the energy back into the building. Maybe have it turn a small generator that charges the boss’s laptop. (more…)

Making Planned Obsolescence Illegal

December 26, 2008



Ever wonder how the package knows exactly when your light bulb will burn out? Annoyed that yet another cellphone battery has gone dead and replacements are not available? Amazed at the precision with which manufacturers are able to make products that last exactly 2 weeks longer than their warranties? (more…)
