If it's true what they say, that GOD created us in His image, then why should we not love creating, and why should we not continue to do so, as carefully and ethically as we can, on whatever scale we're capable of?

     The choice is simple; refuse to create, and refuse to grow, or build, with care and love.

I wonder if that means that they can see in the UV spectrum?

 Newton's second law is not valid for variable-mass systems, such as rockets.


Sorry, but this is not true at all.  It only seems true for the simplified statement of the Law given in Introductory texts:

F = ma

However, the more general and more correct expression for this law is

F = dp/dt,

which is that the force is equal to the first time derivative of momentum.

In the special case of constant mass and since p = m v,

F = m dv/dt,

or, mass times the first time derivative of velocity...or acceleration.  Thus, in the special case of constant mass,  F = m a.

So, F = ma is only a special case of the Law that is used for beginners, but it's not the actual general Law.

On the subject of things that glow under ultraviolet light, tonic water has a pleasant bluish glow, thanks to the quinine it contains. I learned this many years ago when vodka and tonic was my drink of choice. Ordered one in a club with a lot of black lights, and got a surprise. Actually two surprises, if you include a naked woman (yes, it was that kind of club), coming over and asking about my drink.

     In Virginia, there is a state law making it illegal to place a house on the market without disclosing that it is haunted.

     One in every four Americans has appeared on television.

I have a few times, and NO, none of them were episodes of COPS or America's Most Wanted.

One time it WAS Lockup: Raw though.

There is a fine line between having a good time and being a wanton slut.

True, but that line is easily ignored.
