    POLL: Why Did The Chicken HAD TO Cross The Road? Why not NOT cross the road?

    View Comment
    1. Reply

      Albert Einstein: The chicken did not cross the road. The road passed beneath the chicken.

      Isaac Newton: Chickens at rest tend to stay at rest. Chickens in motion tend to cross roads.

      Wolfgang Pauli: There was already a chicken on this side of the road.

      Jean-Dernard-Leon Foucault: What's interesting is that if you wait a few hours, it will be crossing the road a few inches back that way.

      Robert Van de Graaf: Hey, doesn't it look funny with all its feathers sticking up like that?

      Albert Michelson and Edward Morley: Our experiment was a failure. We could not detect the road.

      Ludwig Boltzmann: If you have enough chickens, it is a near certainty that one of them will cross the road.

      Johannes van der Waals: Some say it was a sixth sense that led the chicken to cross the road. I say it was a sixth power.

      David Hilbert: I was standing on the side of the road and a chicken came along, evidently in some kind of strange state. I informed it that it was nevertheless still in my space, so it went across the road.

      Blaise Pascal: The chicken felt pressure on this side of the road. However, when it arrived on the other side it still felt the same pressure.

      John David Jackson: You'll find out after you complete this 37-page calculation.

      Henri Poincare: Let's try changing the initial position of the chicken just a tiny, tiny, tiny bit, and....look, it's now across the road!

      Enrico Fermi: In estimating to the nearest power of 10 the number of chickens that cross the road, note that since fractional chickens are not allowed, the desired power must be at least zero. Therefore, at least one chicken crosses the road.

      Werner Heisenberg: Because I made darn sure it was standing right next to me on this side.

      Richard Feynman, 1: It's all quite clear from this simple little diagram of a circle with lines poking out of it.

      Richard Feynman, 2: There was this good-looking rooster on the other side of the road, and he figured he'd skip all the games and just get to the point. So he asked the chicken if she'd like to come over to his side, and she said sure.

      Erwin Schrodinger: The chicken doesn't cross the road. Rather, it exists simultaneously on both sides.....just don't peek.

      Charles Coulomb: The chicken found a similar chicken on this side of the road to be repellent.

      John Bell: Since there are no local hidden chickens, any hidden chickens you find must have come from far away. They therefore surely must have crossed at least one road on their way here.

      Henry Cavendish: My dear chicken, I have calculated with the utmost detail and precision the density of your insides. Now, for the sake of my precious sanity, I beg you, stop that incessant clucking and be gone!

      Arthur Compton: There were a bunch of chickens waving at me on this side of the road, but then a car came along and they all scattered to the other side. The funny thing is that the ones that ended farthest away were still waving at me a few minutes later. So apparently, the ones that scattered the most had the longest waves.

      Hans Geiger: I don't know, but I say we count how many times it crosses!.

      Galileo Galilei: The chicken crossed the road because it put one foot in front of the other and took a sufficient number of steps to traverse a distance greater than or equal to the road's width. Note that the reason is not because the earth is the center of the universe. Oh, great... another jail term.

      Nicolaus Copernicus: The chicken was moving at a slightly different orbital speed around the sun.

      Fusion researchers: Because it knew that in 30 years it would get to the other side. [No insult intended here. Well, at least not to the physicists working hard with the meager funds they’ve been given.]

      Johannes Kepler: I don’t know. But I’m glad it did, because as it waddled across, it was kind enough to sweep the area of the road with its wings. And it did so at an astonishingly consistent rate.

    What Were Inca Roads Made Of? Inca roads in peru and the andes. thanks.

      Spanning a the continent lengthwise, the Inca road network covered approximately 22,000 miles of roads and trails with about half of that paved. They built stone surfaced roads where the terrain required it, but merely marked the way and distance on dessert or flat coastal terrain. Many miles of the Inca roads were captured from the civilizations they conquered. Some were built purely for ceremonial purposes, but the primary purpose of the roads was to hold the Empire together by providing vital arteries for communications and troop movements.

      Since wheeled vehicles were unknown to the Inca, the surfaces of the Inca Road were intended for foot traffic, accompanied by llamas as pack animals. Some of the roadways were paved with stone cobbles, but many others were natural dirt pathways between 1-4 meters in width.

      To traverse the mountainous regions the Inca built long stairways and switchbacks; for lowland roads through marshes and wetlands they built causeways; crossing rivers and streams required bridges and culverts; and roads between desert oases were marked by low walls or cairns.

      Architectural innovations along the trail included drainages through gutters and culverts, and in many places low walls delimited the road. In some places tunnels and retaining walls were built to allow safe navigation

    New Yory State Road Requirements? Are roads in the State of New York require that the town or city paint yellow lines of the road or no?

    View Comment

      No, the painting on the road basiclly tells a driver what portions of the road they can use. If there are none, other then following street signs (ie one-way) and making sure not to hit another car/person is all that is required. A broken yellow line will mean you can pass (by going to the other side to pass the car) a car if you are driving on the side that it’s broken on. If it’s solid then no passing is allowed if you are driving on the side that is solid. If it’s a single broken line you can pass regardless of the side you are on. If it’s a double solid line there’s no passing regardless of side. A white line is basiclly the same, but is generally used on interstate and state highways instead of the yellow which is used on other roads. If there’s no line that just means that you can legally drive on any portion of the road because it’s not considered a “divided” (note this is different meaning then a divided highway where there’s a median dividing the two sides) road. Most cities will paint yellow lines to make two clear sides, but if the road is not wide enough or does not have enough traffic they may not put any allowing the whole road to be used.

      Bad roads are not dangerous. People who walk or drive inappropriately for road conditions can be a danger to themselves and others — but that is the fault of the people, not the roads. I’ve driven a stock ’72 Pinto on a “jeep trails” and a ’76 LTD on a “high clearance vehicles only” road. No danger whatsoever as to collisions or getting stuck.
