Have you ever just wanted to say something? Something like, "Banana dog boat, banana dog boat, hozana!"? Well, put it here. Why? Because this is the Random Thoughts thread.

So I removed enough fur from my cat tonight to create a kitten. Somehow, my cat has enough hair left to cover the house in a fine layer of his sheddings. I give up.

"Where did you come from?" asked the groundskeeper, fishing the nearly naked young man out of the hedge. 

Pointing up, he murmered "The balcony..."

I wonder what happened if you could split a person in half. Not bisecting them, or anything gory like that; I'm thinking of putting them through a sieve that catches half of the person that goes through it. Say you take every second molecule in a person's body and move it exactly three feet to the left. You'd essentially end up with two of the same person, only both are 50% less solid. In theory they'd still be able to function, but for how long?

It's a fascinating question, but I don't think any mechanical solution would be healthy. But if there were an instantaneous way to do it, or simply to make every other molecule go away....You might end up with the little orange-haired scientist. Maybe she was the result of an experiment?

I'm no biologist, but isn't a lot of stuff that's stored in your brain stored on molecular size? So I think you'd go brain dead instantly. Also, I doubt the spine would be able to hold you up with half of it's original integrity. But it's an interesting concept.

As the moecules compressed back to each other to take up the space now between them, everything would collapse to half size. 

You'd get two half-sized versions of the original...

But the brain thing, yeah.  They'd both be dead.

Nah. There's a lot of redundancy everywhere. You'd lose a big chunk of IQ, but I don't think you'd die. People (although mostly children) have lived through losing half their brain (although not half of every bit of brain) and went on to live a mostly normal life.

I'm no biologist either. The spine might survive - the remaining half would only need to support half the original weight. The brain most likely would not. Also, don't most cells need all (or nearly all?) of the genetic material to function properly? For the purposes of this gedankenexperiment we may treat DNA as a single molecule, but if each cell loses a randomly selected half of its chromosomes, something is bound to go wrong.

I have a google search box, and a yahoo search bar.

Interesting. What are those points good for? And do you take a minute or five every first of the month to do 100 arbitrary searches to fill the quotum?

Every human has 2n chromosomes; 23 paternal, 23 maternal. Take 23 of those away, and you'd be in trouble, yes. But every strand of DNA is really two molecules bound together by reversible polar forces, so you can just split every chromosome down the middle and have the cells rebuild the other strand according to the template with any nucleotides that they have lying around.

They won't have the ability to rebuild them, as you are also splitting the deconstructor/ reconstructor codons as well (Killing them instantly). This prevents natural reconstruction of the cell's DNA, since the things that are meant to recreate the DNA are sort of in need of repair themselves.

Also, when the cell is dividing and making more chromosomes, there are completed strands of DNA for that specific purpose. But  by splitting those completely, you are no longer able to code any new strands and the cell dies.

So you would end up with two piles of relatively rapidly decomposing somethings that look vaguely human-ish if we implemented that idea...

Grabbing cells instead of molecules would obliterate millions upon millions of connections in your brain, which I presume is a lot more damaging than reducing each cell's size by half, which maintains most of the connections.

Nectar points are part of Sainsbury's loyalty card scheme (Sainsbury's is where I do almost all my food shopping, it's my only local supermarket) and 500 nectar points is worth 2.50. A couple of times this year I've discovered I didn't have any money left in my account and paid for a week's shopping out of my points so they're pretty useful.

It detects arbitrary searches (like if you just change one word each time). Why would I do that, when I search for things genuinely all the time? Once I've hit 100 I go back to using google instead.

Changing one word isn't arbitrary, it's predictable. Arbitrary searches are supposed to be irregular and unpredictable.

I suppose it's sensible to use the toolbar in a way you'd normally do, but for me it'd be hard to resist gaming the system.

For me personally I'm leaning towards agreeing that sex is something that should be between two people who love each other, but that's based on three years of casual sex and realising that it doesn't really work for how I feel. But to say that everyone else should feel the same way is kind of narrow-minded because I know that a lot of people don't (all the guys I slept with, for instance). It's perfectly reasonable to say "I don't understand that" because understanding does generally start with your own experiences, but going on to say that sex "shouldn't" be just sex gets a bit less reasonable.

There's this really handy "other thing" I'm going to write as a footnote to my abstract that I can probably explore these issues in. I think I'll call it my "dissertation."
