Well, I think the three-syllable rule still applies:
http://www.eflnet.com/tutorials/adjcompsup.php

However, this is a programming-related (i.e., Computer Science) forum. The value of a Boolean variable can be either TRUE or FALSE; there are no gray areas in-between. (Note that "uninitialized" does not count!) So, how could something be "truer" or "more true" than something else? Rolling Eyes

Truthfulness of a statement isn't booleanic when the statement addresses a collection or group. Generalizations can have a wide range of accuracy. The more accurate the generalization, the more true (or truer) it is.

There is some truth to what you said. So be it.

Sigh. The English standards of some I.T. professional are really falling off a cliff:

Adjective: true
Comparative: truer
Superlative: truest

Take a look at the attachment, and then refer to the following link:
http://www.dictionary.com/browse/handsome

Since some web editor of such a reputable news organization also made such an error, I have to say it was just a very minor mistake.

In light of this, I would like to apologize to revolution -- my comment was too harsh. His/Her English standard is on (a) par with that of top-notch journalists.

No need to apologise. I concentrate upon the content, not the delivery method.

I have read many things about this conspiracy theory, and I still believe the Earth is a spinning ball.

Why?! There are enough proofs of this.

And I still believe our Universe was created by a creator (The Creator, God).

HaHaAnonymous, this might explain more the weird part about spinning ball

why we can't see lots of satellites in front of full bright moon?

I don't know what you consider "lots", but with the right telescope pointing to the right places you can see satellites. Remember that the satellites are very small and far away so to find them in the night sky is quite difficult if you are just randomly looking around without any aid to the eye. As far as seeing them in front of the Moon, well they might sometimes pass between the Earth and Moon, but usually they won't be there.

Truer would imply that truth comes in varying degrees of verisimilitude, and more true would imply quantitative comparison of true statements. Neither of these makes any logical sense.

earth gravity is so powerful and holding trillion tons of sea water, and fishes still able to swim every where they want, man still able to move and run around

and a helium gas balloon could escapes gravity, wtf.

and a small moon got more powerful gravity because it could sucks our ocean water up Laughing

It can only go as high as neutral buoyancy. If you put a helium balloon on the moon it will stay on the ground because there is no atmosphere to support it. AFAIA there is nothing known that can "escape gravity".

Not entirely true. The balloon cannot go up infinitely.

Up to some point in the troposphere, the lowest layer of the atmosphere, the balloon will burst because the air pressure outside of it becomes very low.

There is. Refer to:

Yes, I misspoke. I should have said: ...there is insufficient atmosphere to support it.

if a helium balloon could lift a small cup of water, does it means this helium balloon is stronger than earth gravity?

I'm not sure "stronger" is the right word here. What would actually be supporting the cup is the surrounding atmosphere pushing the balloon up. Not too dissimilar to a boat on the surface of water, the water pushes the boat up.

i want to wear helium / hydrogen clothes, with shoes, will become lighter, and if i put on my wings, maybe i can fly?

So a test for you:

If you take a helium filled balloon and place it in a vacuum chamber at sea level on Earth. Will the balloon rise to the top of the chamber, or fall to the bottom of the chamber (or perhaps something else)?

i guess the balloon will explodes inside the chamber Laughing (the normal birthday balloon)
but if you use very thick balloon, the balloon will fall to the bottom

and if you use very thick and light balloon material, the balloon will rise to the top of the chamber

maybe we are not suppose to put balloon inside vacuum chamber?



Shocked
