Its being transfered like a Newtons cradle, resulting in the second object to posses more potential to move and deform.
I asked God for a bike, but I know God doesn’t work that way. So I stole a bike and then asked for forgiveness.

When I copy a lot of files, sometimes I want to replace existing ones with new ones, but not lose them. Basically, I want to copy a file, and when a file already exists, the OLD ONE would be renamed to something like asdsad_old.ext, and the new one would be put in old file's place.

There are a lot of apps (it's built into Windows Explorer too) that rename NEW files, usually by appending something like _2 or (2) to the end of their names. I want to rename EXISTING ones. How to do it?

Googling didn't help. I use TeraCopy, but it doesn't have such feature - well, at least it has queuing.

Write a mail to Microsoft suggesting this feature and hope it gets implemented to the next windows.

How could the second have more than the first, when all the energy in the system is initially in the first car.

Yes, INITIALLY. Once impact has occurred, the bulk of the energy is transferred to the second object. Its not a complicated concept =/

You misunderstood Smegma's statement, just as he misunderstood yours (I think...). Also, the cars would behave like Newton's Cradle only if they possess the same mass (and were swinging from a fixed structure).

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?
It depends upon your definition of damage, the make/model of the cars, materials involved, etc. I'm assuming your question was supposed to be along the lines of conservation of energy and momentum. As far as energy transfer, the stationary car would possess slightly less energy after the collision due to loss as heat and sound. Momentum is always conserved; after the collision, the system posses the same momentum as it did before the collision. The cars, on the other hand, will have different momentum based on mass and velocity.

OK, so for the sake of closure, will somebody finally butter our toast and tell us which car would be damaged worse after impact?

But the amount of damage is not determined by how much energy is in an object or if it increases does it mean it will incur more damage.

Car X is hit by car Y, car X is stationary, car Y in motion.
When car Y touches car X both cars experience a contact force of the same magnitude (equal and opposite reaction) which would cause the same amount of damage (since both cars are identical)

It is also not necessarily true.

Didn't give us much to work with, BUT, I assume you might've caught something from the dog despite it not showing any signs of illness; Kind of like the swine flu, were the swine carries the disease, but doesn't suffer from the symptoms, however, once the disease is somehow moved to a human body, it sooner or later starts showing symptoms of the swine flu.

If it ain't that, you probably caught something from the air.

You should probably get checked out by a doctor, I don't know anyone on the SF that studies/studied medicine, so you shouldn't rely on the general public for medical advise.

My wrists are really, really thin. How can I make them thicker? Always having to move my watch back to its right position despite its band being on the tightest setting is getting annoying.
Careful with that axe, Eugene.

Stop wearing a watch, pointless nowadays.

Plus, I have thin wrists too. Just deal with it.

That makes the three of us.. No clue how to make wrists thicker (excercise and build up some muscles maybe?). I didn't do anything about my wrists, I just happened to find a watch with a tight enough strap.


Anyway, I've got a question:
Do such things as arm and leg weights exist? (Basically extra weight that you can attach to your arms/legs and wear it) If they do - what are they normally called, and how difficult would it be to find them in stores?

(Yep, this is where this question came from [retard] http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=06wLqMNn3co )

I've seen many weights for arms and legs. Basically it's just a fabric bag filled with some loose material. It can be bought in any store with work-out utensils. (Dunno how to call it.)
