Force, gravity, orbit, velocity, and level are also too common.

1. Why are you using Internet Explorer when other browsers are so much better?
2. Why are you using private browsing?
3. Why do you have so many tabs open?

Hope you don't mind me asking this stuff. It's just what immediately came to mind when I saw your screenshot.

I thought of the IE question, too. Anyways, that searching software isn't the best. Like, you can't use quotes to search for specific phrases.

Edit: Just searched for "meters" and the speed of light topic was the second topic that came up. Apparently, it's 3 mph. (Or, 1 tile per 0.7 seconds, with tiles 0.9something meters). Here's the link to the topic: http://www.testtubegames.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=89&hilit=Meters&start=20#p601

I was expecting some more long term effects, though (ex. when will earth be annihilated)

I think you're probably the only one who put a birthday in on here.
(Wait, are you even still active? I forget.)

Since we're at TTG, I thought you might like to know tomorrow is the aphelion of Earth's orbit! It'll happen at 19:40 UTC, which means 12:40 PDT (Pacific Daylight), 1:40 PM MDT (Mountain Daylight), 2:40 PM CDT (Central Daylight), and 3:40 PM EDT (Eastern Daylight). At this point the Earth is farthest away from the sun! This does not mean the Earth is the coldest throughout the year, but we probably already knew that. Seasons are caused by the Earth's tilt.

Hey! Whoa! We have the Spoiler alert for a reason!

Also, I didn't realize it was the aphelion -- thanks for sharing that bit o' knowledge!

Firstly, I know I am like 2 months late, but thank you for acknowledging my birthday!
Secondly, I'm sure you've already seen me come back, but yes I'm here!

So I just remembered that today is 6! Or yesterday, considering how late I'm posting this. All the "is a number followed by an exclamation mark a factorial or excitement" confusion has lead to this day

Ooh, a belated happy 6! Day!

And *today* is Pi-Approximation-Day.

(Have *all* the days of the year been set to some mathematical celebration yet? Since, after all... this)
