Re: Update?

Ick. What you need is a battle suit, of course. With a well-educated AI that knows just how you are supposed to move, and properly adjusts for the terrain... They never talk about how useful they'd be for physical therapy in the various SF genres that feature them. Well, not therapy exactly, but th...

Re: Serious update.

Earlier today I ended up with first and second degree burns on most of my left hand...and it was a relatively silly kitchen accident. I slipped while carrying a bowl of boiling-hot soup, and when my knee hit the floor, I tilted the bowl and spilled most of it over my hand. If you've ever suffered a...

Re: ERB

The only rap that I have found "good" is the two Keynes vs Hayek videos on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d0nERTFo-Sk http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GTQnarzmTOc Incidentally, I see lots of comments there that seem to think Hayek is the clear winner ... all I can say is that to me, his argu...

Re: ERB

The only rap that I have found "good" is the two Keynes vs Hayek videos on youtube: Here's another, though it probably loses a lot if you don't speak German (or rather, if you don't understand fast German). It's the "pensioner's rap", making fun of current fashion trends (especially among the young...

Re: Low-born vs High-born

recall Jason believing that Gora was a woman due to his name You don't need Faey for that kind of confusion. A rather common example is Andrea: in German (for example), that'd be a female name - in Italian, it's a male name. (The German male version is Andreas. No idea if Italian has a female versi...

Re: Inception, Chapter 1 [Spoilers]

Theoretically he is correct, He who? however, both of you seem to have forgotten the tidal effects of a multiple (two) body system Actually, that's a close relative to if two bodies are so close that their diameter is not much smaller than their distance - or maybe I should say the effect is even l...

Re: Inception, Chapter 1 [Spoilers]

I'm a bit irritated by the orbital mechanics there: The two planets orbited one another around a fixed imaginary point between them rather than one orbiting the other, which was what made the phenomenon so exceedingly rare. Systems like that became unstable very quickly in the measuring of time in a...

Re: The Mayan Prediction

Just like how all the computers would crash and there would be no electricity for y2K. Its a lot of hype to get people scared and ... make them pay programmers to fix their software, so the possible catastrophic events don't happen.

Re: The Mayan Prediction

Most folks have heard that the Mayans predicted that the world would end on December 21st, 2012. I don't believe them, so I've been arranging a little celebration and a small surprise for December 22. Just keep your eyes open 2 weeks from tomorrow. :wink: KP The Mayans predicted the end of the worl...
