    Complaints Section, Science Dept

    A few years ago I queried why there appeared to be only tide in the Philippines and was re-assured by Chief Scientist Rinse wind that there are two tides but the second one is only minor.

    Well now there are massive floods in the area and so I checked out the tide as per link and it appears that RW was pulling a swifty and there may only be one tide.

    I want a refund.

    According to that tide table, there is a high tide every 16 hours, i.e. three every 48 hours. So every second day has two tides

    Well currently the flood is 3 1/2 steps deep with another 2 1/2 steps to go, with the highest tide being on Saturday 4 inches higher than now then they should be okay - but there is another dam they are about to open soon? I know that many are praying earnestly so no need to worry.

    why is that if freezing a drink in a can it expands but when defrosts the can does not contract to it's original size - are vacuums permittable or that rule about equal re-actions redundant?

    If ever an earthquake knocks over the Philippine Trench setting off massive tsunami there will be no one to witness and tell the story if there are one or two tides - like if a sparrow dropped dead in the forest....

    Was God when multiplying the loaves and fishes creating more atoms?

    Probably the can was permanently deformed by the ice pushing out.

    Of course. I've used a vacuum pump, and space is mainly vacuum. "Nature abhors a vacuum" is outdated Aristotelian science.

    Not at all, but it has nothing to do with this situation.

    Why not? If He can create a universe, then a few atoms is no trouble.

    I was thinking along the lines of a butterfly flapping it's wings in a Brazilian rainforest somewhere and causing havoc elsewhere? What could a warehouse of loaves and fishes cause? If the poor people came to be fed isn't that an argument in favour of social welfare? In the Philippines the poor turn up to everything to hopefully get a feed. Can't blame them.

    thanks for your explanations, one last one, my last ditch effort in solar electricity cube idea it can't grow legs? that is create more electricity than those bulbs are using?

    Why does one lot of rice stick severely in this rice cooker but the next one not at all? Using rice from the same bag with exactly measured ingredients.

    Overcooked maybe? My rice cooker will turn "off" when the rice is cooked, but it's still generating heat to keep the rice warm. Leave it in there for long enough and it will overcook.
    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.

    See you in another life, brotha.

    Mine works exactly the same. I turn off quickly to try and prevent sticking and drying out. I was thinking something to do with starch content.
