When one first signs up on this forum, a default time zone is used. Can anybody tell me if this is accurate? Otherwise this guy is in Europe or the middle of the Atlantic Ocean: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=67253

That's GMT, i.e. UK.
And I also believe that's the default timezone. At least I remember having had to change my timezone.

EDIT: the forum software does auto-detect. But why would he be in the middle of the Atlantic?

You're right about the auto detect, for I just checked that out. Even though I penned middle, I meant eastern Atlantic Ocean in regard to the US, with BMT in mind--4 time zones east of NYC.

That said, why is Sonny's local time zone as such?

Could be he's using a proxy or Tor or he's traveling.

I can understand why some of the folks are a little worried about the whole thing, and his sad life story doesn't really help either. But I wouldn't dare jump to any conclusions mostly because I'm not involved.

That said...

Mine is set for that time zone too, because I need to match up forum posts to block chain transaction times.

Today I've learnt that a black hole made of pure energy is called a kugelblitz.

 The weak interaction is the only known interaction which does not conserve parity; it is left-right asymmetric.

And is that why our heart is on the left side?  (this is almost a serious question)

I learned about 3D printing machines and the essentials to build one yourself.
I also learned a valueable lesson in life about appreciation of people around me.

I learned how to make financial Excel sheets that will make whoever attempts to use them for anything fail miserably. Self-tested. At work.  Cry

I had no idea this was something to work toward. I have significant expertise in this area already. Some of the best spreadsheets I've made at work can't even be opened.

The Dancing Plague (or Dance Epidemic) of 1518 was a case of dancing mania that occurred in Strasbourg, France (then part of the Holy Roman Empire) in July 1518. Numerous people took to dancing for days without rest, and, over the period of about one month, most of the people died from heart attack, stroke, or exhaustion.

Certain spiders build they own kites, then fly to new places. This is called spider ballooning.

Almost 1,200 pigs were subjected to bio-medical experiments and blast-effects studies during Operation Plumbbob. On shot Priscilla (37 kT), 719 pigs were used in various experiments on Frenchman Flat. Some pigs were placed in elevated cages and provided with suits made of different materials, to test which materials provided best protection from the thermal pulse.
