Incredibly bright people here. But who on the forum is the smartest?

How would we determine the smartest forum member? Should we?

I see gun toting Mensa candidates.

What do the intellectual elite propose?
I had a Mensa level IQ before I started eating acid like Keith Richards back when I was in high school. I cooked my brain to the point where my IQ is now 13 and I'm on the verge of schizophrenic psychosis.

Looks like I'm out.

They would, and the speed of spin would be directly related to the relationship of the firearm to their center of mass. If the gun was held directly at center of mass, then they would be shot backwards as fast as the bullet going forward, in theory.

Are vapor trails as vivid in space?

I'm thinking enough oxygen would be sealed in the bullet to provide ignition. With an exploding barrel not-withstanding, a gun can be fired underwater.

Does the 230gr have a larger gravitational pull than the 185gr?

Do velocities remain consistent?

At what distance does inertia come into play?

What are "My Humps"? I mean, I know they're lovely lady lumps, but what are "milky, milky Cocoa Puffs"?

Humps, bumps, and lumps are all apt descriptions of genital warts.

Iambic Pentameter is soothing to hebephrenic schizoids.

Can we concur that a factory bullet will fire in space? It works for those torpedo thingies in Star Trek.

Well, if Fergie is infected with genital warts, I will run like hell.

I am still skeptical of the brass surviving the lack of atmosphere. And those astronaut gloves are not shooter gloves.

Okay, hear me out, I'm not crazy.

In the classic "You Only Live Twice", a rifle was introduced that fired rockets. Teeny, tiny rockets. I balked, but apparently this rifle was produced. None of the ammo exists today, but it was real. The rifles can still be had, and are probably cool paperweights.

How do we do this experiment?

Newton's Third Law states that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. I would postulate (there's my 50¢ word usage for the day) that if you fired a weapon in space, assuming you're not braced against anything or tethered to anything, you'd be propelled backwards with the same force that propelled the bullet forward.

Newton's First Law states that an object at rest tends to stay at rest and that an object in uniform motion tends to stay in uniform motion unless acted upon by a net external force. So inertia would be nearly nonexistent in the vacuum of space because the only thing to act on the movement of the bullet would be the gravitational forces of the solar system in particular and the galaxy in total. Atmospheric drag wouldn't come into play in space. (In space, no one can hear you fart, let alone scream)

The gravitational "pull" of an object depends upon its mass (not weight). Therefore, I'd think (already used postulate today) that the 230 gr would have a larger, albeit by a very small margin, gravitational pull than the 185 gr.

Ok, who thinks Acid is taking this way too seriously?
