If a law of physics is broken, does it make a sound?
Yes, but it travels at the speed of light, so your ears can't hear it...

There is no answer to that Q because it postulates the impossible - i.e., that a law of physics can be broken in the first place.

Re: silly humor - reasons for switching to Windows/Linux
« Reply #5526 on: April 22, 2018, 08:52 AM »
Under the Windows OS, sometimes a process that has been killed/terminated in a non-graceful way (i.e., not a normal exit) will leave a residual component in the stack, that retains the original PID (Process ID) but has zero private bytes in RAM. If you try to kill/terminate such processes, the system responds with an error message. In the case of a killed Explorer.exe process which has entered this state, here is an example of such an error message:
Unable to terminate explorer.exe (PID 106484): An attempt was made to access an exiting process.

Below is an extract from a discussion thread from 2007 about this issue from someone wanting to know how to fully delete/clear such a residual process from the list of running processes:
(Copied below sans embedded hyperlinks/images.)
I closed an application, but the process remained in the list. I try to stop in from the task manager, but nothing happens. No error messages, process just stays in the list. I try to debug it, but the debugger says:
Unable to attach to the crashing process. The requested operation is not supported.
This happens with VS2008 and some other programs, sometimes.
How to terminate it?

Well, yeah ... but it kinda loses impact to say, "If a law (as we know it) of physics (as we know it) ...", ya know?  :o ;D

"If a law of physics is broken, does it make a sound?"

That question leads to much more important questions, such as: if you happen to break a law of physics, how much jail time do you face? What kind of jail you can expect to be put into? And is there in such a jail also an unwritten rule about dropping the soap?  :D

^^ You're going down a slippery slope with that line of questioning, @Shades.

This one's for the kid in us or for those who have young ones.

A young serpent ran over to his mom with an urgent request.
"Mommy, mommy, are we venomous serpents?!"
"Yes dear, we are venomous serpents."
"But, really mom, are we really venomous, venomous?!"
"Yes dear, we are venomous, venomous!"
"But, mommy, mommy, are we really venomous, venomous?!!!"
"Son, i've already told you twice, yes, we are truly, venomous, venomous! Why do you ask?"
"It's 'cause i bit my tongue!"

What if you found out you had a non-violent gun that would shoot targets, but not people?

Well, it's been said that bullets have no buddies.  So once it's out of the chamber...

Virtual-reality sex: the fun way to get a new computer!(21st century sex) Still costs the same, but more enjoyable(requires additional hardware). If you are addicted to it, you can get a collection with various OSes. You could get a Windows phone for a reduced price, but it would be Microsoft sex.

If zombies and vampires are undead, then is a zombie vampire a double negative?
