jerry at 23,

Every time I pick something up, I am violating a law of physics, namely gravity.

That’s not the case at all. When you pick something up, you apply a force that is greater than that exerted by gravity. That force comes from your muscles, supported by your skeleton and fueled by the food you’ve eaten. All elements of the action obey the laws of physics.

So that force in the muscles just “poofs” out of nowhere? What physical law generates that force, keeping in mind that f=ma?
Unfortunately, I don't think he's joking.

I posted some material that explained where at least some of the water in the cell comes from. Did you read it?

Hint: It doesn't come from sea water.

While I appreciate your efforts, you seem to be missing the point on a number of issues.

The water in cells does not, afaik, come from water in the surrounding environment. Nor does it come from stars. (What was the purpose of that post?) It is produced as the result of certain specific biochemical reactions.


(I've bolded the incredible part.)  This statement came from his/her reading of something about intermediary metabolism, electron transport, and respiration.
