    Wink My new WHT nick name! :: Immature I know -

    Well, after much speculation (not much at all really) I decided to change my name. Hope you like the new one.

    Effusion
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Effusion

    In literature, effusion is the process of "opening the flood gates" to one's emotions, so to speak.

    In chemistry, effusion is the process where individual particles flow through a hole so tiny they must go one at a time. In this condition the diameter of the hole should be considerably smaller than the mean free path of the particles. Gases effuse, the rate at which they do so is dependent on their atomic radius. Gases composed of large particles effuse slower than gases composed of small particles. This is why a balloon filled full of the small diatomic molecule hydrogen will deflate, if left alone for a reasonable amount of time, faster than one of the larger diatomic molecule oxygen.

    In music, Effusion a cappella is the name of an a cappella group at McGill University in Montreal, Canada blending the sounds of gospel and hip-hop.

    Actually I am now thinking about changing my name. When I first joined the family here at WHT there definately was a need for a Doctor.

    Given the current wht demography I am thinking about changing my name to The Teacher

    How about The (all-knowing) Arbiter? We definitely need one of those around here.

    Sheesh... I was thinking Crazy Quack.
    A well-reasoned assumption is very close to fact.
