you realize the water inside the tube can only be at the same level as the outside water. in order for the water to reach the top of the tube the ship would need to be completely underwater
you're a fucking dumbass; a mirror twenty lightyears away would take the light from the telescope twenty years to reach. we would be seeing ourselves twenty years ago from 20 years in the future.
damnit, why am I even replying. For the pipe to be big enough to siphon enough water to move the wheel it would also allow air in the end of the pipe. Once air is introduced, it would continue to gurgle more air and siphoning would stop. This would happen immediately. It's also why
>>595188269 is stupid. Fluid dynamics change depending on the volume of water you are dealing with. In a straw, the molecular bonds of the small amount of water is enough to hold the water together, a larger amount of water cannot support itself with just the molecular bonds and will move out of the way of the air.
sidenote, this one would actually work if it weren't for the transport of the gold and also how small the difference would be
You'd only be able to see yourself from when you placed the mirror into orbit.
So 20 years from when you'd put it up you'd be able to see yourself trying to work out why you can't even see the mirror yet.
It's the other way around. Supposing nothing obstructs the passage of light, you never leave the telescope and you can see yourself in the mirror, in 20 years, you'd see your present self which would be your past self at this point.
You know what works better? A normal fucking mirror.
but, assuming we could travel as fast as light, which we can't even do, it would take 20 years to get there and back, and by the time we got back, we would see us leaving, 20 years ago. You're the fucking retard
If the mirror was already placed, and you knew where you were 20 years ago, and the mirror always faced our solar systems movements, and you had a telescope that would have a clear enough resolution to see something the size of a penny 20light years away, and time distortion on the fabric of space which means that there is no absolute universal time wasn't a thing, and if you ignored the fact that it would be cheaper to take a photo/video fop yourself and watch it 20 years later...
then sure it would work, you fucking retard
putting a mirror that far in space would take 40 years. seeing an image would take another 40. you'd be dead by that point anyways, and you'd be fucking retarded.
this one is also kiiiiinda technically true, but only because mathematics is limited. it's true like zeno's paradox is true.
i don't know why I'm laughing so hard. Do I have the autism?
my final and one of my favourites, it's been a good thread /b/ros
It would take 20 years for the light to get to the newly built mirror, you wouldn't see anything on it for the next 20 years. At that point you would see yourself when the mirror was first constructed, so you could rewatch your life again if you wanted. Not sure how you'd follow yourself in the mirror at all times though.
mirror is 10 light years away so light would take 20 years for light to reach and bounce back.
also i forgot>>595192563
*And assuming the light was strong enough to reach the mirror and back again without being drowned out by all the other light surrounding it*
jesus titty fucking christ
You're a real idiot if you think the equator has more gravity than the poles
Which one is closer to the center of earth?
Exactly, they're the same you retarded dick addict
>thinking I was trolled when in actual fact the only reason I come to 4chan is to shit all over people posting
>shitting over people posting
or would you rather all the future nobel laureates and fields medal winners than congregate here actually put their minds to something
would this work /b/? the crank is just to get it started
You do realize that every single object in the universe is moving? The moon is orbiting the earth which is orbiting the Sun which is spinning around the freaking milky way galaxy which is spinning and moving so... you wouldn't see shit unless you happened to be at the exact same spot or looking at the mirror at the right angle to see yourself. Plus, you would need a telescope that can see 20 light years away in perfect detail which doesn't exist. Otherwise we'd have detailed images of planets in other solar systems. Dick addict
It wouldn't work.
Think of it like picture related.
If you pull each end of the rope through the portals and then tie them together, would the rope drop to the floor?
>it would btw
The Earth isn't perfectly round, dipshit. It's pear-shaped being slightly wider under the Equator than over the Equator.
The Earth spins and just like pizza dough when you give it a spin, it flattened a little over its lifespan.
Serious question folks.
Lets say in a universe where these things are possible with no contradiction what so ever, would it be a better or worse world than the one we live in today?
