Why do restaurants choose Coke or Pepsi products? submitted by Contiguousrabbit to AskVoat

smallberries 0 points 57 points (+57|-0) ago

Because coke and pepsi offer substantially lower prices to restaurants if the restaurants don't carry their competitor's drinks.

I read that satellites need propulsion to stay in orbit and not fall on earth. But how are they refueled? I never heard of that! submitted by Shapeshifter to AskScience

smallberries 0 points 12 points (+12|-0) ago

They don't need a lot of fuel... they just send them up with some fuel. If there was no air or debris or anything, they would just circle the earth forever. They just need a tiny spurt of propulsion every now and then to compensate for being slowed down by the bit of air or whatever that is up there. When they are orbiting, the earth is pulling them towards earth with nearly the same force as on the surface (sometimes people think there is no gravity in earth orbit, but it only feels that way), but they are moving sideways so fast that they end up going in a circle (they'd go in a straight line if earth didn't keep pulling them toward it!). But as they plow through air or dust or whatever crap is up there, they slow down, and then earth pulls them down faster than they can go sideways, and as they get lower they hit even more air, slow down even more, and eventually burn up in the atmosphere, if they aren't boosted again.

They can get power from the sun, or nuclear power, but right now rockets have to have some sort of mass that they can shoot out in the opposite direction that they want to go, so they are limited by that. What's interesting is that some people are working on a system that can produce thrust without mass (reactionless drive)... right now it supposedly produces only a tiny amount of thrust, and skeptics wonder if there is just a mistake in the measurements, but it'd be quite interesting if they could do that.

People whose SO is overweight, what made you fall in love with them? submitted by EpicGusher to AskVoat

smallberries 1 points 11 points (+12|-1) ago

I don't usually fall in love, but when I do, it isn't because of their weight. She's an awesome person, and very attractive.

Soldiers of Afghanistan perform exercise submitted by Evrocot to videos

smallberries 1 points -1 points (+0|-1) ago

Any background? These fellows are clearly not even trying to do the same exercise--it appears they are trying to be silly to me. Makes me think it's fake or made as a joke or something.

What is the most politically incorrect FACT that you know? submitted by we_are_legion to AskVoat

smallberries 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago

I have a feeling that men being overly represented at the top is not the result of superior intelligence, but superior competitiveness because of testosterone. But that's just a hypothesis, I'm not aware of any relevant facts.

Users who support/want Donald Trump for president, what do you see in him that other candidates don't have? submitted by ulysse to AskVoat

smallberries 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago

Exactly. He's probably going to do what is in the best interests of some companies, not the country, just like many other politicians. The difference here is that they would be HIS companies, not someone else's.

But that does mean that people like actors might be good choices for political office, though, since they are independently wealthy but not in a position to earn more from making decisions in office that are bad for the public.
