|−|:I can take this one. However, it might be better if we had a more focused presentation on magnets, but with some ancillary experts on topics that Juggalos may be interested in. [[User:Flipzagging|Flipzagging]] 17:08, 1 June 2010 (UTC) |+|
|−|:This is the one I've sat an thought about presentation ideas for. Really depends on how deep one wants to go - Huygens-Fresnel and wavefronts bending will need to be around if we wanna dig down, but the basic idea I've been thinking about is "Light bends when it slows down. Different materials let light go at different speeds. It all depends on wavelengths, and thus on color. Look here - a prism and a white LED keychain."

|−|::Richard Feynmann attempts to answer this question, with difficulty, after [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wMFPe-DwULM explaining that any answer he gives is likely to be unsatisfying]. It's hard to discuss the fundamental forces in any terms other than their own. Mandatory listening for whoever's doing the magnets poster. -[[Special:Contributions/220.127.116.11|18.104.22.168]] 19:05, 4 June 2010 (UTC) |+|
|−|Light never slows down, ever. Different colors refract at different angles because of their energy level. But all colors regardless of wavelength travel at the same speed - the speed of light. [[User:quasar|quasar]] |+|
|−|:Michiexile is correct. The velocity of light varies within substances. [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snell%27s_law Snell's Law] expresses the index of refraction at the boundary of two substances as the ratio of the the velocities of light within those substances. For example light goes almost half as fast through arsenic trisulfide as it does in air, so arsenic trisulfide has an [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_refractive_indices#List IOR] of 1.9. -[[User:Laszlo|Laszlo]] 18:20, 2 June 2010 (UTC) |+|
|−|Cool, I did not know that. I see what you're saying. The way I'm reading it, it's not the light slowing down so much as light taking a break and spending some time in an electron. [[user:quasar|quasar]] |+|

|−|::How far do you want to go into this? "Why does light bend?" Eventually you will start to overlap with the magnet explanation! :) --[[User:Macegr|Macegr]] 22:33, 4 June 2010 (UTC) |+|
|−|:::It won't take long at all to start overlapping with magnets here. Not all that surprising either! The next step, however, is to talk about Huygens-Fresnel, and viewing each point along the refraction boundary as a wavesource, and then showing how the speed change makes the wavefronts change direction. Going even this deep, however, puts the whole explanation way past the one-sentence explanation, and even way past the 1-minute elevator talk. [[User:Michiexile|Michiexile]] 17:43, 5 June 2010 (UTC) |+|
|−|:::Another part that I haven't even started to adress is "Why is the rainbow round?" - which ties in with the rainbow "really" being a circle, and with how we see each colour only through the exact raindrops that are at the right position for the light to bend just right to hit our eye - which happens, for a point-shaped light source (the sun) to be in a circle: the circle of things that are just the right amount of (angular) distance from a straight line, thus giving the circular "rainbow". Final bit of _this_ explanation, then, is the observation that usually, rainbows are visible with the sun in such an angle that the rainbow is partially hidden by the horizon.

|−|::I'm bringing a colour printout of the illustration I linked above today. If anybody wants to use it in an explanation of rainbows, that's awesome; otherwise - big deal. I'm a lab assistant, not a scientist (see above), anyway, so I won't do that much explanation tonight. |+|

"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." -Arthur C. Clarke
The video Miracles has earned Insane Clown Posse many new fans and an unfair reputation as being anti-science. Insane Clown Polytechnic is trying to clarify this misconception. Shaggy 2 Dope and Violent J have explained in interviews that they were promoting a positive appreciation for the natural wonders of the world. See the full explanation below.
We are not haters, we are family. We love science, we love ICP, we love the Fam, and we think that the more Juggalos who stand up as scrub for science, the less the jocks and the haters will make fun of the geeks and clowns and ninjas who really run the muthafucking world.
Ohhh haha. Gotta love wikipedia.
JUGGALOS ARE QUEER.
We try hard to even manage we have a hint of what the fuck a magnet is.
Juggalos can't be scientists. Awhh too fuckin bad.
Juggalos must jump people cause they can't fight one on one.
Every race, ethnicity, religion, etc, is better than a juggalo, except extreme militant muslims who want to bomb everything.
Faygo soda makes us insane cause of its sugar but insane amounts of Faygo cause premature death among Ninjas so I'm thinking to do a poster about the health benefits of "less is more" when it comes to Faygo. This is possibly a risky strategy as this pop is their holy sacrament and I'm not suggesting criticizing it, only advocating judicious use of this powerful high-fructose corn syrup-based sacrament.-Parintachin
