Melon,

If you remove the streached skin from this drum

and strike in the open space, is there a sound ?

but i have another, non-music related question. what is the point of a liberal arts college? aside from the stupid canned response where we need a full education, being exposed to stuff like philosophy and english.

ok, i have a few:

-what building in Boston has a terrific view of Fannuel Hall?

-what is Harvard famous for, besides the Yard?

and finally, where is the best shopping in the metropolitan area?

i accept various answers, but remember, Bono is a special part of Harvard, a fine ivy league leader in peace corp volunteers, and fine institutions of very important thinkers and decision-makers.

He, bono, may want you to take a picture of his true home, the economics department of that prime, priveledged and now exciting(!) academic establishment, the pearl of the ivory towers, there in the East U.S.

Yay, this is so enthralling, no? Go, melon! Go!

I guess this goes into the realm of opinion and not fact, but I think that God, indeed, did create everything and everyone out of love. Why to people have children? To pass on their knowledge for the future. In the same way, God created us to pass on His knowledge to us. Why is life difficult? Because, like our own children, we won't accept answers that are merely handed to us. We have to stumble on these answers ourselves, and, collectively, look where it has gotten us? We have a highly advanced civilization with war and violence (perhaps ironically enough) at its lowest level ever.

We are here to learn something, and that lesson is different for everyone. Relying on the past is what got us in this mess to begin with, and, as long as we continue to repeat history, whether by accident or through historicist romanticism, we will not learn that lesson.

Melon
Boah thats a fine answer.

You have impressed me.

Credit where credit is due.

I have a dumb question...the answer probably lies in your profile, which I can't access! Or it has been answered in the past.

Where do you go to school? And what do you study?

Melon,

My elementary geometry question

a) In a triangle ABC, what is the condition (in terms of AZ, BX etc) that 3 lines AX, BY and CZ will meet at one and only one point K. Note that X lies on side BC of the triangle, similar for Y, Z.

b) Can you prove this condition ( answer to part a) indeed ensures that the lines AX, BY, CZ are concurrent ?

c) What is this theorem called ?

Thank you
AcrobatMan

I had no idea that Melon was the whoretenses


Melon, what do you think I should do my history paper on? It has to be a historical question about anything before 1500 AD. I would like to do something relating to Ireland, but I'm also willing to do something else interesting. Any suggestions?

No...their first single was "Anyone Out There," a 1980 UK 7" indie release.

It's tradition, really, stretching back to the Roman Empire with Cicero, and getting influenced by other philosophers along the way.

http://www.conncoll.edu/academics/de...polisdeans.pdf

Here's a paper I found on the subject, which gets into the origins, history, and purpose of the "liberal arts" education. I think this paper can say it better than I can.

Hrm...considering I have an interest in how religion and politics went hand-in-hand--with politics often trumping religion, and religion merely being used as a control tactic--I would study the role of religion in feudal Europe, how things changed with the advent of the Bubonic Plague, and how it contributed to the Reformation.
