if a tree falls in the forest and nobody is there does it make a sound

If a man says something and a woman doesn't hear it, is he still wrong?

after the bullet fired straight up thing last month, i should know better.
the tree falling causes pressure waves in the air. a mechanism for changing the pressure waves to a signal that a brain (animal/insect/human)can interpet must be present for there to be a sound. so by definition if there is no one or no thing to hear it, it is not sound.

sure but not nearly as loud as my chainsaw will be if i find it first - they're variously called deadfalls, bumps, hazards or freebies - depending on your mode of transport and heating :)

Only if the forest is located on a planet that has an atmosphere.

Yes it does. Sound is waves of air being compressed and one does not have to hear it to have sound present.

If someone asks a stupid question, but no one listens, does the question matter?
(Don't mean anything Len, the devil made me do it.) :-)

If nobody was there how would you know it was a forrest in the first place?

If a tree fell in the forest and no one saw it, did it fall?

If a man see's a tree fall in the forest, and there's no woman around, is he still wrong??

If a tree falls in a forest you might not notice, but if it lands on your roof it'll get your undivided attention.

If a tree falls in the forest and crushes a mime, does anyone have any regrets?

deadcarp-for that matter    Posted 12-27-2003 at 08:20:09       [Reply]  [No Email]
ah mimes - what should the preacher do at the mime's funeral? maybe pretend he's crying his head off, then pretend he's in a glass box and try to kick his way out, then pretend he bursts free and sings a carol? or just sweep his spotlite into a tiny speck? :)

come to think of it, we haven't determined the poor fella's denomination yet ---- i don't suppose he mentioned it --- :)
