Technology, Science & Alt Science / I'm getting a Laptop
« on: July 23, 2013, 11:04:45 PM »
I am getting a laptop for my first year of college. I am not looking to break the bank here. I would like to stay under $1,000. What do you guys like in laptops at that price range. I look to you guys because I have no idea of what good specs are for a laptop.

Is anybody else as impressed with Fallout Boy's new album as me?

Flat Earth Q&A / A simple observation turned into something quizical.

While being in marching band all summer (and still in it now) I have noticed something rather odd. When practicing outside I have a clear view of the sun. When I look at the sun (I have sunglasses on to protect my eyes) when the sun is lower and setting I notice that the sun looks larger than when I saw the sun earlier in the practice. I have observed this many times at practice, and wondered why the sun looks larger when it is setting than when it is higher in the sky. Is there any explanation to why this happens? The sun (in some flat earth theories) makes a circle around the equator, and the "setting sun" you see it the sun getting farther away from you appearing to drop below the horizon. Why have I observed the sun appearing to get larger as it gets lower?
