Read it a long time ago - went to Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff last week and understood what they were talking about when they mentioned looknig for red shifts and blue shifts.

(Red shift means a distant celestial object is moving away from us - blue means moving toward; helped prove the universe is expanding)

Start picking now cause there are not enough characters.  We will have folks fighting over things.  Otter might be a good Potter, but he is studios like Hermione so not sure what other male character we would put him as.    I like the thought!  Oh no university ahhhh

I'm a nerd  :D I just started reading my copy of A Brief History of Time

I read that last year before Season 5.  It's pretty cool, and though the time travel on Lost doesn't quite fit, there is some stuff in there that helps it make some sense.  At the very least, it makes you believe that time travel is possible!

What's funny, though, is that book is written for non-academics, and it was still way over my head in a lot of ways.  It's a quick read, though, which is why I was able to pull it off.

Post by: E.S.B. on August 12, 2009, 10:20:03 PM
lol.  It's for extra credit.   ;)

Speaking of making time fly, you will learn in the book that if you are flying in an airplane high above the earth, you are actually time traveling by like miliseconds because you are further away from the effects of gravity.  So you age slightly slower than someone at the Earth's surface.
Title: Re: LOST UNIVERSITY....

Did you ever read the Talisman?  It is a SK book.

Ohh, OOoh, I wanna play!  I don't know what HP I would be... maybe Mrs. Weasley?  My HP RPC os a teacher at Hogwarts, but not one in the books. 

Hope everyone is having a great summer!

Post by: JBRam on August 29, 2009, 09:34:39 AM
Actually... if you move in any direction fast enough, you can theoretically travel back in time. All you need to do is travel faster than the speed of light. Granted, this is currently known as "physically impossible" because your mass increases asymptotically as you approach the speed of light, thereby requiring an infinite amount of energy to reach the speed of light, let alone surpass it.

But if you ignore that part of physics, it's theoretically possible!

Well, the vast majority of quantum physics is completely theoretical. So ignoring these theories isn't necessarily like ignoring a law, like gravity. :D

Maybe I will take that Quantum Physics class after all

By no means does it have to be hard... im thinking of taking....New Physics with Jeremy Daives, Intro to physics of time travel, Foreign languages for beginners, and Ancient writings on the wall...all sounds good....

for extra curricular im thinking of joining the Frat and also being onthe smoke monster watch team.

Did you notice that they screwed up in the Lost 101 video? They said that when the island moved, the island and ALL its inhabitants started time-traveling... but we know this isn't true, the Others led by Richard didn't time-travel. John asks him where they went, and Richard says they didn't go anywhere--John did.  :-\ The rest of the video was good though, a good synopsis for people who might want to get into it but haven't yet. Except for that part about everybody time-traveling, lol.  ::)

That is the topic of some heated debate, and nobody knows anything for sure.  :( I don't have blu-ray either. It would suck if they got alllllllll these Lost fans to join up for something that's basically a sneaky advertisement for blu-ray. I'll lose all respect for them.

Ug.... so here's what the email said about needing a blu-ray player, etc. I put the crappy parts in bold and also omitted irrelevant stuff:

I think the point is for you to buy Season 5 on blu-ray, and if you don't have a player for it, to buy a player, too.  :'( TPTB/ABC have done their fans a great disservice. Maybe I'll stop by every once in a while. And I'll still see you here!  :-* Don't worry!

Spoken like a man who has disposable income...  ;) I'm the kind of person who, told that she must do something, does everything in her power to NOT do it. I don't like being forced into things. I had no problem with blu-ray before, but now I adamantly don't want it. I'll spend money on Lost prints, and numbers t-shirts now and then, but having to spend $300 for a blu-ray player, then another $100+ for Lost S5 on blu-ray... that's asking too much of their fans.

Mrs. A - thank you for acknowledging my sentiments.  It is like anything else these days in the world of technology etc.  PC platforms where previous software is not usable etc.

I tend to be the same way push me and I won't do.  For people who have been loyal fans for all these years to be forced to upgrade to another technology, where stimulating the Wonderful World of Disney/ABC's already gold lined coffers come on.  Give the fans the fun for one last time.

This leaves a very sour taste.

Post by: TheBrightandTheDark on September 27, 2009, 11:21:17 AM
Exactly. If they can't make it accessible to their entire fan base, it must not be that important to them to reach everyone. The online ARGs aren't accessible to people without internet access, and they're not necessary to enjoy the show. But! I'm sure people who have blu-ray and get S5 will let us know what's going on, if it's cool enough. I'll just concentrate on SW for now.  :)

I never really focused on the outside games anyway or participated on them on here.  I have to many other things happening and keeping me busy.  I just realized the Christmas countdown is starting (in my world) for things to make/bake/create.  So when it is all done then the wonderful world of LOST is going to happen.

Some have been fun but it has turned out that none of them had anything to do with the show, so it was kind of a waste of time. I wished they would of given us a couple fo extra details.

Oh I might not do what Juggy would ask me to do  ;)

Hey guys I thought this was funny.  I was doing some reading for work and one of the companies was Disney and how their cruise lines and other things were hurting in this economy.  I was laughing thinking of the Blu Ray and perhaps I wasn't far from the truth on the marketing side of this.

Just observational nothing concrete. ;)

If the BluRay works on the PS3 I'll be in business. It's about seven weeks until s6 premieres. I could use the review and some insight into where the show may be going. I suspect LostU is a way to share the extras from the BluRay with everyone. We will see.

It was a tactical marketing ploy on the behalf of them to boost sales in this economy.

Yet antoher choice in the world of technology!  Maybe they will bring back BETA

If I find any cool new stuff that's only available on blu-ray, I'll pass on the info. Nobody should be forced to buy it, especially when we share here.  :)

Not buying blu ray, if someone gives it to me I will accept but I have other things first.

I did, I'll send you a pm with a synopsis, lol. It doesn't explain WHY they'd let the DI investigate anything, though.

well there is the tutoring center at lostuniversity.org that has tutoring videos... but thats not what i meant... i meant go to youtube.com and search for the classes that are available... like " Introduction to physics of time travel with Daniel Farraday" things that lostuniversity.org doesnt have... they are the classes that are on the bluray... got it ?

And some of that stuff is for folks who are tuning in for the first time in six years.  A crash (pun intended) course in LOST ;D
