  • What determines the low and high notes for your vocal range?

    I understand you're supposed to sing up and down with the scale, but i'm unsure about what the stopping point is supposed to be. Is it whatever note you can hit? Or do you have to be able to hold it?And how much, if any, strain should you feel?

  • Cantor's proof and missing real numbers?

    How would you rework Cantor's proof from the beginning, so that digit under consideration was 3, with a corresponding missing digit M, written as a 7?

    How would you go about doing this, if the digit were not 3, so that instead the associated missing digit M was a 3?

  • Is there any ethical validation for inbreeding White Tigers?

    I am not implying that any other form of other animal cruelty is justifiable; I am not implying that any other animal breeding is justifiable; I am not implying that suffering among humans is necessarily justifiable either. My distress over the White Tiger is a specific and singled out concern, among many.

    There is an enormous debate centered upon how White Tigers are bred. White Tigers are not their own species, and do not occur naturally in nature, and the white coloring can be attributed to a special pair of recessive genes on their chromosomes. Thus, they are almost exclusively a result of excessive and experimental inbreeding. This is done in captivity, and has gone on for generations.

    Long story short, there is something like a 20% survival rate, and only a percent of that comes out successfully. There is an even larger population of failed attempts, and these rejections are kept out of the public eye. The poor creatures come out horribly deformed and disfigured, undergo a handful of physical setbacks, suffer numerous birth defects, and endure a fair amount of pain.

    Can you think of any good reasons to continue manipulating this animals existence, aside from the fact that they are pretty and that we like to look at them? I realize no one really wants to see the creature simply die out; but humanity is more or less forcing them to exist, and condemning them to a life of suffering.

    It probably sounds pretty obvious how I feel; but I was appalled when I heard this story, and I would to hear some reactions and any suggested pros and cons, when considering our duties, consequences, and virtues.

  • Stories about introspection and/or self-realization?

    I have a school assignment in which I am to include a story that upholds and celebrates introspection as a topic that I think is good.

    It does not have to be something written by me or based upon any personal experience, which is a relief because everything I am thinking of is far too personal.

    However, I am drawing a complete blank, so does anyone know a generic story about introspection/self-realization? or of a place where I could at least look through a collection of relevant stories?

    Thanks a whole bunch!

  • Does the film "Eraserhead" fit into the horror genre?

    I am taking a horror/fantasy film course; and a major part of our grade is a project, which consists of presenting a film of our own choosing to the class.

    I immediately thought of doing Argento's "Suspiria", but I recently saw Lynch's "Eraserhead" again for the time in years; and I am suddenly reconsidering that as a possibility.

    My only issue is about its placement in the genre; since it's not exactly a conventional horror movie. Therefore, I was wondering if anybody had feedback, as to whether they agree with me that it contains enough horrofic elements to fit in as a surrealist horror?

    I am also open to any other good suggestions, thank you.

  • Does a word get shorter, the more it is repeated?

    A general theory, proclaims that the more frequent or necessary a word/phrase is used for communicative purposes, the more likely it is to be shortened or abbreviated.

    Do you think that is an accurate description of some of the things going on with our language, particularly net language?

    Would you agree with the people who believe this sort of thing is "destroying our language" and, therefore, hurting our culture?
