Oh, I see. The difference between 09.56 and 09.17, right? Took me some minutes to figure it out.

hi Denominator

Let the distance from Southampton to London be D, and the distance to the overtaking point be d.

Let the time in minutes from 9.17 to the overtaking point be t

The goods train takes 165 minutes
The express train takes 100 minutes

So the gradient (velocity in miles / min) for the goods train is

and for the express train

You can eliminate both D and d by dividing these equations:

and then solve for t.


How did you get that 39? Sorry, couldn't comprehend.

Ah, right. We tend to overlook 1, or 0, or 2 sometimes.

221) Anesthesia

Methods for lessening the sensation of pain during surgery date back to ancient times. Before the discovery of substances that produced general anesthesia, patients needing surgery for illness or injury had to rely on alcohol, opium (a natural narcotic derived from the opium poppy), or fumes from an anesthetic-soaked cloth to deaden the pain of the surgeon's knife. Often a group of men held the patient down during an operation in case the opium or alcohol wore off. Under these conditions, many patients died of shock from the pain of the operation itself.

I am grateful that I am living in the current era. Some days ago, October 6th, I underwent a cataract surgery and probably would have died if that was the method they used.

I can see someday if I try to flirt using this line and forgot what I am about to say and that list them according to their order: Q, R, T, U and the girl goes "huh?".
