Nor can a blacksmith's forge melt steel.  Yet, he still uses it.

i don't know anything about being a blacksmith so i googled it, and the internet says a forge can get up to 3500 degrees. which is plenty hot enough to melt steel

because blacksmiths usually work with iron.

Usually,  but shoes for racing horses are made made of steel.   Part of the reason that they are worked at a lower temperature to not mess up the material.  When my boy toy does smithing,  he carefully monitors the temperature with an IR thermometer to make sure there isn't that much of a phase change for the material.  Overheat and the metal becomes too soft.

The point stands though,  he softens the metal with heat, at a temperature much lower than burning kerosene.   They bend.   For that matter,  so what does it matter what temperature kerosene burns.   There were other materials in the twin towers that burned hotter than kerosene.

it would have taken quite a bit of time for anything to reach a temperature to melt steel enough to collapse a giant building (let alone two)

they collapsed instantaneously. into their own footprints.  :pirate:

Yes, it did.  Enough times for dozens of firefighters and make it into the building.  Enough time for brave men and women to go to their death. What are you saying collapsed instantaneously?   One hour and two hours are not instantaneously.

Sorry to butt in, but I was googling and I've read a lot of stuff that says the majority of men have testicular cancer in autopsies and the majority of women have thyroid cancer and the upward spike in both of those might be from a trend of overdiagnoses and a technological evolution and not from an actual upward trend in those types of cancers. They actually reclassified a type of thyroid nodule from cancerous to non-cancerous here in the US because the protocol was to have the entire thyroid removed, even though the chances of having the cancer spread beyond that nodule in the person's lifetime was less than .5%. I thought that was fascinating af and I read a similar article about a type of cancerous ovarian nodule. 

 

THANKS FOR LISTENING TO MY IRRELEVANT INPUT

Well, thanks for the input! I actually had a class about that this semester, and overdiagnosis is, indeed, a really big issue nowadays, especially among the elderly population (but in this case it's more related to the fact that in a lot of cases, the treatment would end up shortening their lives while also worsening their quality of life)

Mostly I'm just tired of going to reptile shows and not being able to find anything else for all the tables of ball pythons. They're pretty but they're not that great you know?

 

I've never had it in a curry, but I love curry so I'm sure it would be good.

I've only had rattlesnake and copperhead.   I understand about the shows as I am a lizard person myself.   A person that likes lizards.

I can see that. My grandfather was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Treatments would not have helped him (not only was he very old, but it was late-stage when it was discovered) so we all chose to let it progress naturally and provide palliative non-curative care. It was hard enough seeing the toll the cancer was taking on him, I can't imagine what would have happened if they tried chemotherapy or other types of treatment to cure him.

You are thinking of prostate cancer in men. As a man, if you live long enough, you will get prostate cancer. however, having said that, it is still the number 3 cancer killer in men. Also, I think you are confusing the terms "Cancer" and "Tumor." Maybe a majority of woman of thyroid tumors, but the majority dont have cancer.

Pacreatic cancer blows. Sorry man. One of the reasons it is so bad is that by the time any symptoms present, it is (usually) so late in the stage of cancer that palliative care is the only feasible option. I think that oncology is a field that is actually somewhat dishonest, putting some patients through horrendous treatments that cost sometimes 100,000s of dollars and only add weeks (if that) to life. It is a field of medicine I am not particularly proud of. 


Cancer is good for you.

still confused by this though

I think you're right about prostate cancer. I know I'm thinking about thyroid cancer and nodules though. The majority of people HAD thyroid cancer, but like I said earlier, they reclassified the type of nodule with cancerous cells in it to a non-cancer diagnosis because of how slow growing it was. 


I can't for anything find the link with study I saw that on though, because I was researching something else entirely when I came across it.
