...a topic is dormant for a while, then gets revived by someone new or the originator, then there is a flurry of activity in the thread, then it gets locked out. Does an old topic fill that much more space than a new one? Perhaps they should be automagiacally locked after
x weeks (months, days, whatever) of inactivity???

The lead acid battery, used to start your car, was invented over 150 years ago. That technology hasn't changed much since that time and in fact, in battery research, they call that device a "box of dirt."

That is the equivalent of an Asian style tsunami every 10 days....killing nothing but children.

A giraffe has a tendon that runs all the way from the bung to the top of its neck that acts like a rubber band, so when their heads are up, they are at rest. They need to use their muscles to bend down.

The first use of the concept of zero originated in Mesopotamia somewhere in the 2nd millennium BCE, we didn't represent it with a small circle until 800something CE, invented in India. Before that, an empty space and later various symbols were used to represent zero.
