Hi i'm Michael
« on: 17/06/2008 21:32:32 »
You may remember me from such thought provoking threads such as


 "P versus NP" "The Hodge conjecture" "The Riemann hypothesis" "Yang-Mills existence and mass gap" "Navier-Stokes existence and smoothness" & "The Birch and Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture".

Unfortuantly the only person (NEIL) with any hope of answering these problems has his own problems to solve such as " why if i fall on my head does it Hurt" Why dont my eyeballs fall out when i open my eyes " and HIS yet to be solved favorite " why at night when I turn the light off does it get dark ?"....

I therefore have no choice but to leave the answering of this question to you the mere mortals of this forum.

Why if i put silver foil in my mouth my teeth feel like they are getting electric shocks and i have to remove it, yet my kitten can happily bit on an run around with a ball of tin foil all day without feeling any unpleasant feelings in his mouth or teeth.

Helloooooooo Michael... I think I remember you!!!

Do you have fillings?? The old silver fillings use to really hurt with the foil in the mouth thing!  I am not sure why that is,, Tis a good question!

pressure from biting brings two dissimilar metals (aluminum foil, mercury in fillings or gold in crowns) in contact in a moist, salty environment (saliva)
the two metals have an electrochemical potential difference or voltage across them
electrons flow from the foil into the tooth (i.e. electrical current)
the current gets conducted into the tooth's root, usually by the filling or crown
the current sets off a nerve impulse in the root's nerve
the nerve impulse is sent to the brain
the brain interprets the impulse as pain
Enough said!

... and deleting those post that have been mysteriously disappearing. The cat is actually making you do it. it is all the metal in you house, as well as the aluminum foil hat you wear to keep the aliens from communicating with you. Still get through, though, don't they?
