Let's say that you're invited to a scientific, highly-regarded convention to discuss a recent breakthrough in nuclear physics.

What tactics would you deploy, once there, to derail the event? I ask this because we have a few professional derailers on the forums; they've thoroughly impressed me.

Discuss.

Heh, this is actually a fun frain to answer.

Just use "by the way," "Off-topic:" and "Did you know..." quite a bit. There are similar phrases.

I'd pull out a grenade and throw it into the space ship before it could take off, thus ruining the scientist lady's plans.

Everyone is missing the point. This is a challenge to derail THIS thread, not easy to be honest. But that Taco does look good.

well one way to successfully derail something is to go as FAST as possible on a tight bend which will lead to the power of inertia taking over and causing it to derail.

You guys are missing the point. You can't derail a thread by talking about derailing. It will always come back to derailing.

Quantum mechanics state that, because E=MC^2, inertia cannot increase itself

LoL, I actually derailed the thread. (The thread was about derailment tactics, I turned it into a derailment challenge xD)

Proof: See how the post before and after mine are significantly different. Oh, did someone mention Taco?

EDIT: @ Gen. NumbNuts v. Before I posted every single post was about how to derail a thread. After my post not a single post has been on OP intended topic.

Eh, I don't really see that as a derailment Tbest. Maybe a slight course change but it's still on the topic of derailment.

people are trying to derail a thread that isn't about derailing a thread but about how to derail a science convention. I really don't know what to think.

Black and blue but I still see brown and grey with color picker.


This is rigged.

And I filled the whole page with bucket.




Also, color can change depending on the color of your source. If your source is red, everything will be reddish or appear differently.

It isn't rigged, the lighting in the picture was bad, and everyone's eyes are different and see the picture in different colors. Some see it white and gold, others blue and black.

Edit: there's a wikipedia page dedicated to it: http://bit.ly/1c23so6
