How Trampolines Work

2019-05-1400:57:23

I'd like to respectfully disagree about a statement you made. You said all crystals are clear and it is impurities that cause the color. this isn't true in all cases. For example, pure sulfur crystals are yellow and pure copper sulfate crystals are blue. The color is caused by the absorption of wavelengths of light. What is seen by the eye is not the color absorbed, but the complementary color from the removal of the absorbed wavelengths. By the way, I love your show!

Rheumatoid arthritis is an auto-immune disease that affects most joints, the others are not an auto-immune disease and typically involve a specific joint. That's the difference.

Just listened and this made me remember when I toured a sugar factory. One of the processes involved building crystalline sugar by taking the leftovers from one vat to use as the base that would get built onto from the next solution. if memory serves (over 2 decades have passed) they're were 4 stages of crystal growth.

There have been cases of bed bug bites being attributed to short term memory loss. People waking up having no recollection of the night before.That would have been a cool addition to this podcast.

If the trans community wants equality then stop forcing it on non transgender communities. I don't care about your choices. I couldn't see why someone would care about mine. If they do then that is the person I don't want to be around. To each their own is what I say. Labels don't make the person. I accept people for how they present themselves to me. Nothing more, nothing less.
