    Well, it's a non existent principle, so it doesn't have a name. The principle that prevents you original thought from happening, I am not sure. Read up on fluid mechanics until you find a principle that specifically applies and there you go.

    But I don't think there is any one thing that would apply, that's why I was having a hard time coming up with a conclusive answer, even though I understood the principle. The closest thing would be the principles of syphoning. They explicitly "prevent" that hypothesis from existing.

    Also think, even though it is an easy conclusion to come to, it is also easy to disprove with a container and a straw, so there may never have been a specific principle applied to it. It just that other principles prevent it.

    I was considering a beer bong for the flexible hose.

    Optics question. Imagine a black spot on a white surface. What color is the line separating the spot from the background?

    With all do respect if the page is white and the only thing on it is a black spot then technically those should be the only two colors there, however when black and white are combined it creates gray. The question for me is do the graphics allow for a clean separation or do they cause an integration of the black and white. And then on a technicality,a smart ass art student would say something like black and white aren't actual colors.I personally disagree with the last statement, 1st because if you mix the colors of the visible spectrum of light you get white light.So now that you probably wish someone who has their ducks in row would have answered that instead, I'll leave you alone now.

    Two possibilities:
    1. At some level the black and white mix, giving a grey border.
    2. There is no mixing, the empty space between the molecules is the border and therefore has no color.

    Since the criteria has only left room for a black dot and a white surface, I believe the answer you are looking for is that there is no spoon... I mean line.

    I never said that the only colors present are black and white. So far, I think @Eylrid 's second answer is the closest to the truth.

    I think I see a pretty meadow , with some beautiful flowers, and the way the sunlight radiates through the petals makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside.

    Scientifically speaking, what is the main constraint or impediment holding back the advent of nanotechnology? Thank you.

    Define?

    Do you mean nanotechnology as in the nano robots of science fiction?
    Or do you mean the use of the nanotechnology we already have?

    If you mean the latter, that would be the FDA and other medical oversight commities which won't see our current technology levels in practice for another decade. By then who knows what advancements will be available, and not being used.
