Pufferfish are natural. Doesn't mean eating one won't kill you. Still, "natural" is a buzzword used by companies to make something seem inherently better, more wholesome, or somehow healthier.

So yeah, bulllshit.

Except that in this case it refers to a chemical that people have already consumed many, many times before in fruits and vegetables with no health risks. When the majority of your consumer market can't be counted on to understand what ethyl acetate or dichloromethane are (and they shouldn't, even if you're selling the pure chemicals), labelling your product as 'natural' in order to differentiate it from another is a viable option.

Elvis is popular everywhere, to some degree. Like the Beatles and the Stones, they might be less popular in some countries, but known and have fans everywhere.

that is something you should have seen a long time ago considering how long you've been on the internet and that pwot was one of your hangouts.

timecube is the work of one gene ray, a crazy racist old man. it's really not worth it going into anything about him, you could probably google or wiki what you want to know. one time some students at MIT got him to debate them and they filmed it and it was insane. this was in the time before youtubes, but maybe they've uploaded it by now.

Seems like this guy even has his own wiki entry, be sure to see the link at the bottom for the videos abe mentioned (Including a segment on TechTV).

I can't remember that exact painting, but the style reminds me of Spanish Impressionist José Puyet.

QUESTION:

How does an audio signal travel through a wire? What format is it in? How is it encoded? How are microphones different from pickups on an electric guitar?

also, this is a test to see who is smartest

Electricity. Electric. Electricity. Microphones use a diaphragm, pickups are just directly connected.

A microphone has a diaphragm which vibrates when sound waves hit it. The vibrations vibrate a permanent magnet which has wires wrapped around it. A magnet moving near wires induces a current. At the other end you have a speaker which has electrical wires wrapping around a permanent magnet. The current near the magnet induces vibrations. The magnet is connected to a diaphragm which vibrates the air creating sound waves.

Fucking magnets!

That makes sense to me. It is fascinating that information encoded within sound waves can be translated into information encoded within light (and back). I also find signal processing and analysis really interesting, but I have no background in electrical engineering or physics so thanks for the answer.
