    An explosion happens far away from you. The shockwave takes 60 minutes to get to you. When the shockwave reaches you, the explosion would have happened an hour ago. Same principle. Also related, people who were born at the same time can be born a day apart.

    Samsung vs Apple.

    I’ve had bad experiences with Samsung phones. Thus why I prefer Apple because from what I’ve observed it lasts longer. Oh and “better” is subjective. I like Apple products and no one can tell me otherwise. Depends. Too small of a sample size and forum polls tend to be skewed anyway. @dundun93 why do you dislike Apple products anyway?

    Explain a film badly 2

    Nope. Doesn’t seem like it, does it @kerbiloid? Not quite what I had in mind...think lampposts.

    So, you have a plane on a conveyor belt...

    My understanding of the OP was that the speed of the treadmill was not constant. If that were so, wouldn’t the plane be unable to take off? There would be no air passing over the wings to create lift as the acceleration/final speed of the plane would match the treadmills. When running on a treadmill, you wouldn’t feel air rushing over you. Wouldn’t that be because relative to an outside observer/ground/air you are actually stationary?

    My first Tesla Car I've ever seen.

    I’ve never even seen an electric car before. Not surprising, considering that you wouldn’t see any charging stations around in my country and electric cars are niche. Yeah the forum doesnt allow you to answer only one as they are “required fields”

    If you feel unimportant, just go outside. Intense heat and pressure at the core of our star fuse atoms of hydrogen to produce helium in the process of nuclear fusion. This reaction releases huge amounts of energy as gamma rays that jump around, being absorbed and emitted. Finally, when these photons reach the surface, they’ve lost enough energy to become visible light. The photons travel at light speed, 299,972,458 m/s. Yet since the appoximate distance from the sun to the earth is 149.6 million km, it takes light some 8 minutes to reach earth. After that, the photons become scattered as they travel through the atmosphere and finally, finally reach the ground, only to be stopped by you.

    A Quiet Place

    Yeah, I like that it brought something new to the genre, standing out from the mush that are horror movies today. The movie Hush, has basically the same concept of having a deaf person as a protag. Replace the monsters with a serial killer and you have that. Its pretty good albeit not as much as A Quiet Place IMO.
