View Full Version : Nü Science project
September 9th, 2006, 04:41 PM
Hi. After my last project (bullet-proof vests) got DENIED (*burn* )by the review people, I came up with a new (lame) project involving accuracy in human temperature perception, and whether older or younger people are generally more accurate in guessing at the temperature of the area where they are.
So now I need some research stuffage. Any help to be offered would be appreciated! (that is the point of this thread)

You'll have to ask hundreds of people to get an accurate reading. :p Have fun!

And DD hits the nail right on the head: You'll have to gather quite a sample of responses from people. Ideally you'd also want to get their responses to a controlled range of temperatures so you'd need an area where you could control the temperature and you'd then have to ask each of them individually. You could just go around and ask people what they think the temperature is wherever they happen to be but you'd need a far larger sample of people before you'd have any meaningful statistic on whether they were better at different ranges on average.
You might need to get a lot of thermometers and train a posse to collect data for you. :p

Ach. Screw it. I got a better idea now.

Have a microwave science project. What happens to certain materials/objects when put into a microwave oven.
You can start with a simple aluminum flame by having two pieces of aluminum next to each other, and as a grand finale have an exciting grape race.

Shut up Fat Al, or do I need to kick your arse on ZDaemon again?

I don't think I need to remind you of the results of our fair matches.
Fatal - Rustywhacker
First match (demonic village): 8 - 2
Second match (underhalls): 6 - 5 (it was close, but only because I was just warming up at the level)
Come on, challenge me again. I dare you!

It was actually 7-7 on Underhalls, plus you were a bitch and fragged me after I said "BRB", so it was really 7-6.
But yes, I got pwned in our first round, but I'd never played the level before. So there.

You were just suspiciously moving and shooting while you were away. Also you fragged that poor bot like hell. You took a new low.

Quit your lying. Don't make me tell the nice ND folks about your "disorder", Fat Al.
