When I am nearly out of petrol (gas) I often see the yellow petrol tank symbol telling me to fill up the car, but I have noticed that when I park on a gradient for a while, the little symbol is gone but after a bit of driving it comes up again. This made me curious as to how the car detects the amount of petrol, and why this is affected by parking on a slope.
The other day, I noticed that when I went to adjust the volume, I could just detect the sound of a radio station playing in the background. Strangely enough, this was the same station that I usually have on, but the radio wasn't on or anything. I am wondering how my speakers can pick up the radio channel when I touch the volume adjusting knob? If I remove my fingers, the faint sound is gone. It even happens when the computer is off so it's definitely not coming from there.
As I was really bored, I tried to squash/kill this insect by blowing on it [:X], suffice to say, it did not work and the poor thing just flew off. But maybe it would be possible to do it with compressed air? Whatjathink?
Two days ago, I started having trouble viewing some pictures on the internet, for example on Google, all I see is this:

and when I open a new tab, instead of having a picture of the webpage, this is what I get
[ Invalid Attachment ]
On some websites I visit at the top it says:
[ Invalid Attachment ]
Which leads me to downloading Adobe Flash Player version 10.0.32.18 After I did that, I was still unable to see the images  I don't get it, it was perfectly fine before but now it's very weird, even after I installed the Flash Player it still didn't work. By the way, if I use the internet as the 'Administrator' everything is fine, no problems at all, but for the two users, neither one works properly.  Anyone give me a hand?
Is it just me or has anyone else noticed the LARGE amount of registers lately? Previously, the average registerations per day was somewhere around 5.1-5.2, now it is 6.4!! That is BIG jump. I don't think they are interested in posting anything...
Notice that the top button hole is horizontal?  But the rest are all vertical? I have just noticed this the other day.  Is there a reason for this? Well, actually, there must be, but what is it? 
I was just making some macaroni & cheese in the microwave, and I had to pause the microwave half way through for about 2 minutes to go do something. When I came back and resumed the cooking, I found that the viewing window was all fogged up with condensation. So I opened the microwave, wiped the viewing window clear and then resumed the cooking, after that, the window did not have condensation (at least, not nearly as much as before) on it, even when the sauce was bubbling away. Why is this? Is it because when the microwave is on, it can remove the air inside and when it stops it cannot? 
It's a bit quite at the moment so how about having a physics problem of the week?  Here's an easy one for you: A man spins a 0.5 kg stone on the end of a 2 meter string which has a breaking strain of 25 N. He whirls the stone 2.45 m above the ground. Eventually the string breaks and the stone flies off horizontally. Ignoring gravity [:I] air resistance, how far does the stone land from his feet?
Feline was born normal but developed appendages at age 1, family says
It's a bird, it's a plane, it's a cat?
A kitty in Chongqing, China, is getting some extra-special attention these days: The furry feline has developed wings! Though born looking completely normal, once the cat hit the age of 1, he began growing wing-shaped appendages on either side of his spine, the U.K.'s Daily Mail reports.
While some think the bony limbs may be a mutation of some kind or even a Siamese twin growing inside the cat others speculate it's a genetic change perhaps caused by chemicals ingested by the kitty's mother while she was pregnant.
According to the cat's owners, he doesn't seem to mind his new wings and hes loving the attention he's received because of them!
Strange as the case may sound, winged felines are not unheard of. Back in August 2008, the U.K. Telegraph reported that tomcats in China's Sichuan province developed wing-like growths on their backs.
Veterinary experts said then that despite the hard inner core, the "wings" don't harm cats' quality of life or safety. According to the Telegraph's report, scientists believe the appendages developed due to grooming habits, a genetic defect or a hereditary skin condition.
