I wanted to get the name 'Starfire Dragon' in Latin. I made a rough translation with Google; Draco Astrum Incendia. I'm not sure if Draco is actually dragon, but it sounded right as Google failed me on that part. Can anyone help?

Yeh, it looks good for someone who didnt learn latin.
For someone who did learn it, the declension is wrong, and im not even sure if you picked the correct words.

Translated, it should be something like the wished translation. But im not completely sure that i picked the correct gram. cases, so here are 2-3 possible translations:
Draco Astri Incendiorum~ "dragon of the star fires"
Draco Incendii Astrorum~ "dragon of the fire of the stars"
Draco Astri Incendii~ "dragon of the star of fire"

Yours would be something like "dragon star fires"
Its a bit hard to do the back translating only with nouns/adjectives without having it in a sentence, as there can be multiple translations, depending on which gram. case you choose, and you cant find it by reading the context, as there is none.

Wow thanks, that's great. I formed that translation based on how some languages are backward, compared to English, like Irish or French, with the noun being described by adjectives and the adjectives coming after it. I'm not even too sure if thats a correct assumption but it sounds right. Thanks again.

Oh, and here's a sentence for you if it helps. "The Starfire Dragon descended from the clouds, bestowing awe and wonder on all who gazed upon it" (I'm a sucker for dramatics and descriptive writing :3)

That's not even close to descriptive...
And I think it translates (Literal translation) to astri flamma extraxi.

I have an irritating computer problem:

http://img710.imageshack.us/img710/6071/computerbug.png

Notice the red region. I have 2 additional groups of taskbars or whatever. I don't know how the hell they appear and how to remove them. It's not "right-click and remove toolbars" - that doesn't work. FYI, I searched all over Google and didn't get the answer I'm looking for.

EDIT:
It seems to begone on a restart, but I believe it may re-appear because that has already happened once. Though I still have one additional toolbar - at least the one that showed duplicate windows is gone.

There can be dozens of ways how to say the same sentence, so all might be correct, but all can be wrong too. I used the words for which i was sure that they have the meaning of the wished word.

Flamma version:
Draco Astri Flammarum
Draco Flammae Astrorum
Draco Astri Flamae
In english, both flamma and incendius mean the same, but they do have a different meaning:

Flamma, -ae, f.~ a controled fire, like a small flame
Incendius, -i, n.~ an uncontroled fire, like a forest fire, you now, the thing that destroys stuff.

If 2 identical cars would have a face to face hit, one going at 100mph/kmph (don t mind the speed) and the other standing still, which car will have the most damage?

And could someone find me the source if this picture in this website I've seemed to look everywhere but I cant find it, I'd love to have it bigger and better quality for a wallpaper

The damage is the same since the impact is the same for each car.

If the static car remains with v=0m/s, the damage should be identical, unless the elasticity forces become big enough to create a visible effect.

Otherwise, the static car would get the most kinetic energy transferred to it from the moving car, and would be pushed backwards, which might lower the impact damage for one of them.

You do make sense, but I disagree; I think the static car would receive the most damage considering it has 0 momentum.
In traffic collisions, if not all collisions, the object having the lesser of the two momentum's usually takes the greater amount of impact damage.

The car doesn't necessarily have 0 momentum, actually. It all depends on what your reference frame is.

In this case, the only two objects that matter are the two cars. When they collide, they'll share the energy of the collision regardless of which car is moving relative to which frame.

It's all equal damage.

Wouldnt the equal damage be possible only under the ideal conditions?

Wouldnt it depend if the static car remained stationary during and after the impact?

If the the target car was free to move after the initial impact, the energy should transfer into it and it would take a lot of damage.
However if the stationary car could not move whatsoever, lets imagine its a wall with identical mass, then the incoming car should take the most damage.

Does that make sense? =S

The car has to move after the impact.
If the car remained static there would be some obvious counter forces to the impact, which would negate them enough so it remains static.

Im not sure about the damage, but in my opinion it should get less damaged if it starts moving, as it would dissipate some energy with it, but if it would be tied to a single place it would get smashed.

It isnt the same as with a wall, because the wall has different physical properties from the material from which the car is made of.

It was a metaphorical wall -_- Lets just say the car occupied a region of space that was in a stasis field where time could not penetrate. Would that be a suitable literal hypothetical?
I was using the polarity of the hypothetical situations to determine how energy, mass, and momentum relate.

Think about it graphically - the target car loses energy quickly and stabilises, whilst the target car gains energy quickly and then stabilises. Since the target car will have the greater energy and velocity upon impact, it has the greater deformation potential, no?
