Alright, all the answers were written!
If you wrote me a question, I'd encourage you to go to my profile, click the "toots and replies tab" and find my reply to you. I was involved with another conversation at the same time, so this next step might be slightly inconvenient, see if you notice something when you scroll up...
Except you, @petra. You're going to have to scroll pretty far down.
@monorail I voted
@monorail where do babies come from
@monorail holly you didn't give me an answer
@codl I'd have to start feeling cute. You can tell me I'm cute all you like, that's not going to make me feel less like shit when I look in the mirror.
Christ, what a downer note to end on.
@monorail agklhj now i get it. this is what i get for replying fast
@Sir_Boops When a parent and a ditto tolerate each other very much, an egg appears. No one's quite sure how.
@monorail did you borrow this idea from ben or is it a fedi meme I'm just clueless about
@quarky Almost always the latter. You can try the former but it always feels forced. Unless it takes off naturally, there's a weird air to it. Sometimes you can use that to great effect, though.
@monorail what's your favorite and least favorite part of fedi software
@mew Ben was the first (as far as I know) and then Hoodie did it. Does three people a meme make?
@monorail is a meme a concious decision or a societal phenomenon
@mew It is, in a sense, unstoppable. Even if it disappeared in any official capacity, we could "keep circulating the tapes" forever. It is kind of a shame how complex it is, though. I can mostly get around well enough to do what I want to do, but I can't actually follow it. Not sure how much of that would be avoidable.
@kity Yeah. Nothing hard, in fact, nothing that's not legal where I live now. But at the time I was a rebel. :P
Definitely do your research, though. There is some bad shit out there. But yeah, a lot of it is overblown.
@monorail What is your opinion on plate tectonics?
@deing I'm not sure that would actually count :P And I dunno, it's a really broad category to pick from without specifying some sort of subset. I guess I'm fond of cats?
@monorail what's cooler, than being cool!
@mew I got 177 words in before I couldn't continue, but I did skip a pretty big section and some of the sentences are out of order.
@psxbunny AAAIS CAWLD!!
@psxbunny This maybe won't be a popular opinion but I'm not a huge fan. They freak me out. My sister has one, though.
@psxbunny Yo, chill, you don't have to ask me twice just because it took a few seconds to get to you.
@monorail uh, metal gear solid?
@petra Hm, most of these weren't questions about the universe with actual, objective answers... here, let me do some research.
I'm approximating "distance from mars to the asteroid belt" as "distance from earth to the asteroid belt", so the error bars at the end are going to be +/- 3 minutes.
Looks like the asteroid belt is between 2.2 and 3.2 AU. Let's call it 2.7. That's 403914600 km. 0.99c is 297000 km/s.
Overall, that's about 22 minutes and 40 seconds, +/- 3 minutes to account for the origin being mars instead of earth.
