Really tough science questions.
Please spoiler your answers.

Q1. What do you call it when 1/2 of a planet eclipses the other 1/2?

There's a highly acclaimed and universally praised for it's historical accuracy documentary cartoon available called 'The Flintstones' should you care to watch it Big Grin
Those who ask a lot of questions may seem stupid, but those who don't ask questions stay stupid.

Surprisingly, science was not my favorite subject in school.

In my high school Biology class I spent most of the time in the back of the class either daydreaming or chatting with the school pot head nicknamed Bonehead.  I never knew his real name.  He got that name because he was cooking something on a cast iron skillet and somehow, in a state of drugged confusion, the pot fell on his head.  

I was a painfully shy, extremely thin, wallflower of a girl but somehow Bonehead and I got along very well.  We only chatted in Biology class. As soon as the bell rang we parted our ways and went to our prospective social circles.  I, with my other wallflower, undatable girlfriends and Bonehead, with his bad boy, biker types.  I wonder whatever happend to Bonehead.  Pretty sure he didn't go into any of the sciences.  

Sorry about the off topic story but at least it did have something to do with science....sort of.  Blush

I could be described as painfully shy around the same period.  I wonder if online forums basically select for our sort?

Well, I'm not so shy now.  I prefer being around people which is why I hated being an art major.  It's a lonely thing, art is.  I loved the social aspect of theatre so I majored in theatre design.  Forums are more of creative writing outlet for me.  

Anyway,  science has been a recent interest of mine.  I was amazed at the first black hole photographed several months ago.  That was stunning!

I'd say "shy" no longer fits perfectly here either.  I can be outgoing but I know that it is a very strong preference to have regular time for solitude as well.

My wife actually started out in theatre but got into weaving at Cal under Ed Rossbach and ended up showing internationally whle still in school.  She doesn't show any signs of wanting to stop despite my repeated suggestions to give retirement a chance.  Oh, but she did take something away from theatre.  She both comfortable and good at public speaking.

1 is singular.

Singularities are black holes.

Black holes can't be added to infinity, they already enclose infinity.

So there.

No. Infinity is not a number. Please stop mathing with it.

It is, but it is a cardinal not an ordinal.
Philosophy is about asking questions.
Science is about answering questions.
Theology is about avoiding questions.
