if you delete cookies your logins will also be deleted. but i wouldn't uncheck cookies. the whole purpose of deleting history is to refresh your profile and erase footprints

Re: [SOLVED] Hypothetical question about gravity

What is the universe expanding into ? does it really matter now that IT already is? so it expands to the "ends of the universe". will it go further or is there a limit? if there's a limit then there's something containing it. does something contain the container? And then there is the " Anthropic P...

Re: [SOLVED] Hypothetical question about gravity

you're forgetting that "nothing" remains the same if you add to it or take away from it, so this means it is very stable. How so? Nothing + something = something. nothing always remains the same when you add to it or take away from it. this is why it's called nothing. if you change it's name to som...

Re: [SOLVED] Hypothetical question about gravity

Regardless of what exactly happened, math and science can only go back to the very beginning, no further. Else, you'd be asking to look back before time itself began -- an obvious paradox. :D right, i guess math can calculate 14,000,000,000 but it can't go to 14,000,000 008 or more?. since we have ...

Re: [SOLVED] Hypothetical question about gravity

There was nothing physical. Without any physical thing, physical constraints like x and y coordinates are meaningless. right, there was nothing. a definition of nothing is, it remains the same when you add to it or take away from it. how then can we have something out of nothing if the "value" of n...

think of a number from 1 to infinity type it down so you don't forget it. make it as long as you like open your Calculator and try this. take your number and multiply by two x 2 = +8 = divide by two /2 = minus your number -x = https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/c/cd/Fantastic_Four...

Re: Include the latest NVIDIA (and AMD) graphics drivers for a better out-of-the-box experience

KaOS Linux and Mageia 7 have options to boot the live usb in nvidia non-free mode. but you will never see bleeding edge software in ubuntu. if you don't see it in ubuntu you will not see it in mint. mint depends way too much on ubuntu
