How about those lines of teeth which are wholly unsuitable for eating plants or the fact that marks have been found on other dinosaurs's bones which fit the teeth of tyrannosaurus perfectly or the fact that it's eyes were pointed forward giving it binocular vision an attribute commonly found in predators we might not have been there to observe a live tyrannosaurus but all the evidence points to a carnivorous lifestyle.

Well in that case I claim that the woolly mammoth was a fierce predator which killed strangling it's prey with it's trunk also it piss was pink and it's poop was purple and it made tweeting sounds.

Sounds Excellent, lets add it to the book!
User avatar #59 - epicalania (02/09/2014) [-]
If you look at the photo of the exhibit it shows the Tyrannosaurus as being about the height of the human, therefore it's fundamentally wrong regardless of whether or not they were carnivores (which they were)

A heavier arrow is less dependable on wind however, it will also maintain its speed better.
The downside of course is that it will accelerate towards the Earth faster, but that may not be a concern, depending on the circumstances.

Yes a heavier arrow will not drift of course as easily however an arrow made of steel would be so heavy I would be surprised if it reaches more than 25 meters not to mention the fact that in warfare accuracy is a moot point since you are shooting at a concentrated mass of men over 200 yards away and with hunting wind is a moot point since shooting at a target which is over 30 meters away is just a way of scaring your target. maintaining speed is rather useless when you have barely any speed to begin with a much more effective way to maintain arrow velocity is by using smaller/more aerodynamically efficient fletchings. historically arrows used by the english weighed around 980 grains (63.5 grams) had a shaft made of wood 1/2 inch thick just behind the head tapering down to 3/8 inch at the nock fletched with three goose feathers about 7.5 inch long by 5/8 inch high cut in a triangular shape and armed with an armor piercing bodkin head. The arrows I use for target shooting and 3d shooting with my 50 lb longbow weigh around 450 grains (29.16 grams) and are fletched with three 5 inch parabolic shaped fletchings they are 5/16 inches in diameter.

User avatar #75 - sinery (02/01/2014) [-]
What I was most interested about the arrows was if a wooden shaft itself is better than a steel shaft.
Assuming both arrows has the same mass and shape, they "should" have the same speed once fired.
But not all energy (apart from resistance) is transferred into speed when the arrow is fired.

There is elastic energy in the arrow which "bury" the arrow into the target.

So theoretically a wooden arrow should have less speed than a steel arrow, while the wooden arrow has more elastic energy.
Question is which one is more important?
#76 - reteip (02/01/2014) [-]
A steel arrow which has the same mass as a wooden arrow will be so thin that when shot it will not hold up against the force of the string. wood is surprisingly stiff for it's mass and is also the reason why even modern bows have a wooden/bamboo core (excluding high end target recurves and all compound bows) a steel arrow which is stiff enough (has enough spine) will be so heavy it will be utterly useless.

But then again, we're not interested in time, place or resources available. We could go on a debate that lasts long time, but it's getting late and I really don't want to.

For example, Leather was the most common armor where hunting was prominent, and gambesons were basic equipment elsewhere. Gambesons, like I said, could be modified in various ways from ring mail and coat of plates to brigandine etc.

I'm not sure if they even knew about aluminium "in those days". We could be talking anywhere from the 4th century and onward on the topic of chain mail.

User avatar #172 - wolviewolverine (01/28/2014) [-]
isn't that like experimentally proven?
an arrow goes through materials bullets cannot penetrate. That's pure physics - bullet is just too light to carry over enough energy despite speeds

As a friend of an Olympic archer
#175 - reteip (01/29/2014) [-]
When it comes to penetration utilising kinetic energy bullets have the advantage due to their speed however on softer materials which disperse the kinetic energy of a projectile an arrow with a sharp broadhead may be more effective because it can cut through the material but on harder materials like steel bullets almost always have an advantage this is also why they stopped wearing armour during the 18th century because even the simple bullets from a musket could easily penetrate a steel cuirass. For arrows it is nearly impossible to penetrate a steel cuirass except when using heavy war arrows with armor piercing bodkins heads fired from bows of over 100 pounds draw weight and then only at close range (<40m)

True...but no one made it back from the Salyut 1 alive (though the crew was killed on re-entry rather than in the station) and then it fell out of orbit and the Salyut 2 fell out of orbit before ever having a crew. Skylab had several different crews who lived on the station and who survived to make it back to Earth. Out of those I would call Skylab the first successful station (especially since it lasted until 1979 before falling out of orbit instead of falling out of orbit in a matter of months.)

However I would point out that the US has the first craft which have made it into Interstellar space and is the Scientific lead in exploring other planets (Mar's satellites and rovers as well as flybys of outer planets.)

They're both right at least as far as both being words are concerned.

Contrails are... you already know what contrails are.

Chemtrails however are what conspiracy nuts believe are contrails are being used to control/poison/kill/sterilize/whatever the population through chemical means, or something. It's most likely bullshit, but the guy's wording wasn't wrong.
User avatar #23 - KINGOFTHESTARS (01/18/2014) [-]
in this guy's defense, hes talking about the strange chemicals that linger nowadawys after planes pass.

this is a part of a conspiracy theory that the govt is testing on us.
the chem trails have been tested to have several chemicals in them that are harmful and fall steadily from the sky.

accounts from older people say the contrails used to dissappear and not linger.
#50 - gilfhunter (01/18/2014) [-]
Contrails have been known to persist for hours even as far back as 1919. This photo is form 1958
#48 - anonymous (01/18/2014) [-]
chemtrails and contrails are very different. Contrails are from the change in temperature from the cold air and the hot exhaust of the plane. Chemtrails are sprayed purposely and they do exist, i see them all the time, contrails leave after a few seconds, chemtrails turn into artificial clouds. Apparently their purpose is to block the sun's rays to "stop global warming" but the aluminum oxide is known to lower sperm count and sterilize men

fuck, of course four hours after his post, someone has to explain at the same time I do.
#26 - reteip (01/18/2014) [-]
contrails can linger for several hours and in busy airspaces this can cause a criss cross pattern but it is nothing less than water that comes out of an engine of an aircraft as a gas and then condenses to form contrails. There is no scientific evidence whatsoever to suggest that 'chemtrails exist'

Actually we both appear to be right, it varies by species of rattlesnake. Some have neurotoxic venom while others have venom that has characteristics of both hemo and neurotoxic venom. The rattlers in my area have a more neurotoxic venom. So yeah, venomous snakes have a wide variety species and each one seems to have its own unique blend. Learn something new everyday.
