  • How to log out of a website when you can't log in to it?

    So I got a certain website that I have set to automatically log in, through Firefox. Problem is that my account on the website is screwed up, and I need to log out of my account in order to log back in, but it doesn't allow me to login, so that I can logout of it. How do I get Firefox to forget the auto login, without clearing all other website auto logins too?

  • Who wrote Fleetwood Mac's Little Lies?

    I know that all of these songs are officially attributed to Fleetwood Mac as a whole group, but usually there are clues that you can tell who actually wrote most of it. Like with the Beatles, there are ways to tell which ones were written by Paul or John, mainly because the writer would also be the singer. In the case of this song, the lead singer was Christine McVeigh, but in the video, Lindsey Buckingham featured heavily in it, even though he was just a background singer. So my guess is that Buckingham was the writer? Anybody have some real information about this, is my guess right?

  • Now that we're wearing masks, what foods smell bad?

    So now that masks are almost ubiquitous, we're now often rebreathing our own dinners. What foods have you found don't bother you when you're not wearing a mask, but now that you are, it's really bothersome? The one surprising thing I find bothersome is corn-on-the-cob, which you smell strongly inside your mask for a day after eating it.

  • Wi-Fi adapter speeds?

    So a Wi-Fi adapter that I installed on my desktop PC is listed as an "AC1200" adapter, however down below on the box it says its maximum speeds are 300 Mbps on 2.4 GHz, while at 5.0 GHz it's only 867 Mbps. Neither of them are 1200 Mbps, which is what I would have assumed its maximum speed is. What does the "1200" refer to?

  • Consistent Histories interpretation of quantum mechanics?

    So I just recently heard about this interpretation of quantum mechanics. The Wikipedia article is poorly written, so it's of no help. So my understanding of it seems to be that it describes particles that can take many paths, but all of its paths end up in the same place at the end once it's measured. So somewhat like the Many Worlds Interpretation, but instead of it resulting in multiple universes, it results in all multiverses converging into one universe again. Does that sound about right for this interpretation?

  • Was Superstring Theory doomed all along?

    So SST postulated that we replace point particles with string particles. Around the same time, the world of experimental physics was converging on the idea of Quantum Field Theory (QFT), which was the theory that was starting to come to the conclusion that particles don't actually exist, that they are just more constricted waves. QFT was less theoretically ambitious than SST, but more experimentally supported. It would seem that QFT was quietly converging on the right answer, but SST was going the exact opposite way, and turning particles into the main focus, and turning waves into an afterthought. When the experiments are saying one thing, and your theory is saying another, shouldn't the experimental theory win out? It seems that was a major problem with SST.

  • What was the name of that video streaming service that went out of business a few years ago?

    I think about 5 years ago, there was this video streaming service that had 7 second videos that repeated on a loop. It had a lot of hype back then, but in the end it didn't generate a lot of actual interest. I just can't remember the name of that service. Anybody?

  • Anybody know what happened to the Space Travel Calculator?

    This webpage was used to calculate how close to the speed of light you needed to get to get anywhere in the universe within the span of a single human lifespan. It used to be at this link, but it's gone now. Is there an alternative or mirrored copy of the calculator?

  • Facebook, inviting someone to a group?

    I was trying to invite one of my general FB friends to a private FB group which I'm a part of. Now, for some reason, while trying to invite him, his name was not showing up, as someone I could invite. Instead, I had to get him to request to join the group, and that's how he got it. BTW, I'm the administrator of the group, so I was the one who approved him to come in. But it's weird that I wasn't allowed to invite him to my own group?

  • Is there any difference in accuracy between digital or analog quartz watches?

    Quartz watches are said to be on average accurate to about 15 seconds/month, but they don't mention whether that's for digital or analog quartz watches. Is there a difference?

  • How is orbital precession calculated in Newtonian gravity?

    So one of the big test successes of General Relativity over Newtonian gravity was the precession of Mercury's orbit. Mercury's orbit precesses 5600 arcseconds/century, but Newton's laws only accounted for 5557 arcseconds, and Relativity came up with the remaining 43 arcseconds. But where do you find precession from the Newtonian formula F = GMm/r^2?

  • Does it matter to you that statues of Christopher Columbus were torn down in several American cities?

    If your answer is that he's part of American history, then why is he part of it? Columbus never stepped foot in any land that is now part of the USA. Why are there statues of him, when America was named after another explorer Amerigo Vespucci? I don't think Columbia has as many statues of Columbus as America does. Also, not even counting the fact that there were people living in this continent for tens of thousands of years previously: if you think because he was the first European to discover this continent, then the Vikings landed here 500 years before him, and they actually made it to lands that are now part of the USA.

  • Spam from Google Hangouts?

    Over the past couple of weeks, I've been getting daily notifications from Google Hangouts to connect with users there. All of the users are complete spam, not real. I don't know why I'm getting these notifications now, I don't think I ever joined Hangouts, unless it comes automatically with other Google services? Is there a way to unjoin Hangouts?

  • Why birds and not dinosaurs?

    So one of the main theories about why birds survived the mass extinction, but not dinosaurs is because the birds were smaller. But does that really make any sense? There were numerous small species of dinosaurs around, and numerous large bird species around before the asteroid impact. If size were the limiting factor, then wouldn't some toothed dinosaurs have made it through to present? Is it more truthful to say beaks vs. teeth were the true filter for the extinction? And if so, why would beaks allow them to survive an asteroid impact?
