Quote from: Telly
  Oh, btw, what is YOUR understanding of "Matter? 

To answer with a quote..."Some are just not worth the trouble and some people just are not worth engaging".....
and last, but not least, a quote from the great Muffles...."I understand that you don't matter."
My goodness, you could have saved yourself a lot of time and felt less dumb if you just listend to the great muffles lol Tongue Grin.

Do you use hot or cold air to clear a fogged up windshield?
Both. I turn on the heater and blast it at the inside of the screen and open my window to let in icy air. It seems to scare fog away pronto like. Also shrivels my gonads but side effects seem acceptable with being able to steer safely...

i concurr. i found that the hot air helps lots, but i get clautrophobic, so i have to open the window. which kinda sux when its bucketing rain.  cold air does squat.  i think, the humidity in your breath, makes the window fog up, and when you bazooka the heat, the moisture dissapates, and hey presto.  i think, tho, there is some kind of liquid you can apply to the glass to prevent it fogging up.

Dunno about car windscreens, but Mr Min on a helmet's inside visor helps prevent a total fog-up. Just dont use the scented one's, they attract bees....

BG we always put the aircon on full blast, lowest possible temperature on the windscreen and within seconds the window is clear!  Just before your fingers freeze to the steering, systematically lift the temperature!

Cold air from an airconditioner works fastest for clearing a fogged-up windscreen because it has a very low relative humidity compared to the ambient air, and therefore it has a much higher capacity for picking up more water vapour.  A windscreen appears fogged up due to millions of microscopic condensation droplets packed on its cold surface.  If you don’t have an airconditioner, hot air works better than cold for essentially the same reason: increasing the air temperature also increases the air’s capacity for picking up water vapour. Hairdryers and tumbledryers illustrate this principle.

Now my own question:  So, who are the spring chickens?

Damn, the first question I know the answer to and Luthon beat me to it. I'll ponder the spring chickens.
My question is, if the speed of light is 299792458m/s; what is the speed of dark?

Is the existence of the Deschanel sisters proof of a malevolent deity?

You should listen to a different radio station then. TuksFM ftw. Ignore the DJs, listen for the music.
