  1. As said, the effect of the distance to the Sun is praticaally negligible. The fact that the northern hemisphere has more land area and the southern is mostly sea should be a much more significative influence.
  2. Aphelion and perihelion, please, don't mix Latin and Greek. And judging by the polygon-like shape of Venus's orbit, it seems that's a VERY rough simulation. I don't think it would be reliable for 100 years at all.
  3. So, you're the 164535th person on this thread to make that unrunny joke? Must be really proud of yourself.
  4. Are you sure you're not talking about the British Museum?
  5. It depends on how you interpret orbital eccentricity. A eccentricity of one could be a parabola. Or it could be a straight line segment, which is the case here. Think of a circle with eccentricity zero and increasing to one. If you keep b constant and increase a you get a parabola. If you keep a constant and decrease b you have a line.
  6. A painting has no emotions or self-awareness. A painting is not alive. Do you value your life so little that you would be willing to cease to exist simply to let someone who looks like you get somewhere quickly?
  7. I think another problem with the title is that some of the images are really famous, so it's not that hard to believe they're real.
  8. I think it's like an answer for "What's that causes..." "What's that causes the injuries?" "That's what causes the injuries."
  9. The fact that you put that two sentences next to another, separated by a comma, usually means that one is an explanation or example of the other.
  10. Gravity is the weakest of all forces, you can't really measure it when there are forces 10^30 times stronger in place. Not on the scale where we have observed antimatter.
  11. Well, humans never went to a star, and we only explored an insignificant portion of the Cosmos. I think spacenaut would be the most technically correct.
  12. At first it's funny, then it turns philosophical.
  13. Well, there could be another symbols in the future... Guess which one is the "save" button:
