    Science Test

    Bit of a distraction, ten science questions, of varying kinds, you have to provide answers, you can use search engines, but a wee linkk must be provided to support the answer that you give...

    Okay, here they are then...?


    1) What is the most toxic gas known to man..?

    2) What is the most toxic liquid known to man...?

    3) Is a bird a mammal...?

    4) How many stomachs does a cow have?

    5) What would happen if a cow ate mowed grass...?

    6) Cyanide, Strichnine(sp?), or Methadone, which would kill a man the quickest, in equal measure?

    7) What is the genus called that is between inverts and vertibrates..?

    8) Are there more rats or homo sapiens, on earth..?

    9) What exact area did Armstrong and co actually investigate on the moon, was it a few miles, a few hundred, or what?

    10) What is the primary chemical compound of the venom of a black widow spider..?



    :)
    "Ethics" is simply a last-gasp attempt by deist conservatives and
    orthodox dogmatics to keep humanity in ignorance and obscurantism,
    through the well tried fermentation of fear, the fear of science and
    new technologies.
    There is nothing glorious about what our ancestors call history,
    it is simply a succession of mistakes, intolerances and violations.

    First time I've seen this thread. I'll give it a go. No search engines and I have'nt read any of the other posts. You'll just have to take my word for it!

    1. Carbon Monoxide.

    2. Mercury.

    3. No.

    4. 3

    5. Nothing.

    6. Strychnine.

    7. Crustaceans

    8. Homo Sapiens.

    9. Less than a square mile.

    10. Potassium.

    Most were guesses. How'd I go?

    Re: Science Test

    I didn't look either but I'm pretty sure a cow has four stomaches. And if it ate mowed grass it would eat less unmowed grass cause it would be full. Hay (another staple of the cow) is essentially mowed and dried grass.

    Re: Science Test

    If a cow eats freshly mowed grass, it will likely die.

    True.

    As to the others, I don't actually know the answers to most of them, I was just throwing them out to those that might...

    Re: Science Test

    And if Armstrong investigated less than a square mile, which might v well be true, how can we justly say that the Moon has no life on it?

    That would be like someone from the Moon landing on a deserted part of Earth, having a bit of a look around, before delcaring, no, nothing to find here...

    Hmmm... :cool:

    What? You think a cow will die from mowed grass? Why?

    Something to do with their digestive system, mate.

    Friend of mine, lives near a farm.

    Mowed his lawn, gave the freshly mowed grass to a cow, cow died.

    I can't recall exactly how it works, but it's the truth.

    There are many life forms on this earth that live and thrive in environments that you would call 'hostile' and 'alien', LJ.

    Oh hostile and alien for sure! bottom of the ocean in volcanic vents. in the -80 degree arctic inside snowpacks. In the middle of the desert. I agree fully. But all life as we know it requires an atmosphere.

    I might go as far to say all life as we know it requires liquid water but that may be pusing it.
