That is NOT what the study said. The study stated that men were more likely to receive the Darwin awards than females. They suggested possible reasons for this including selection and reporting bias (ex. it's more OK to laugh at the deaths of men then that of men).
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Is there a reason why USB cables can't be shaped like 3.5 mm speaker cables just with more 'stripes'? Then they could be plugged in any direction and they'd be rotate-able.
Ignoring the plethora of other problems this would face, wouldn't this be shut down by the anti-trust/monopoly laws?
I think the FBI just stole the NSA's schtick.
Don't most planes fly above the storms?
Not wanting to sue to begin with was probably due to the PR involved and bad inter-company relations (Samsung used to supply... screens?). Having won the last lawsuit to the tune of $1B, means that while he didn't really support the orignal lawsuit he's perfectly ok with other money making courthouse shinanegans.
While they both start with the same data, minor copy errors during DNA replication will eventually mean that they are not 100% identical. The odds of both twins actually mutating in the same way is actually pretty low. Most of these copy errors will occur in the womb, however some can be attributed to environmental factors.
Normal DNA tests take a few locations of the genome and compare them. To be more thorough, you test more points. Eventually you'll find a difference that you can use to compare. It's like comparing two books. You open to the first page and see the same acknowledgement you might assume the same book. But sampling a few more pages and you'll realize that maybe one is partially plagarised from the other.
They should pay it just to show that 'twin' crimes are not uncatchable.
yeah... Sorry bad at detecting sarcasm
It's my understanding that 'loudness' is a function of amplitude not frequency. Furthermore ultrasounds are by definition too high a frequency for us to hear. As for the heating issue, yeah probably. Otherwise this is kind of cool. It's like writing on a stretched rubber band.
Yeah... you would just add this fee into your grant application. Shouldn't be too difficult. Also, it would only really take about 8-9$ per month.
Why not just tax guns and ammo? Oh I know, because you wouldn't make enough money off of it.
Gravity is based on mass, not volume. Density has nothing to do with it
Would we then have to create artificial breasts to produce milk, or take hormone supplements for those women who wish to give their childeren breast milk? Or would, in a world where artificial wombs are the norm, milk mothers make a return and become an industry?
Most of the time you breed for genetic anomalies. Things like color-blindness, Huntington's repetitions, predeliction for cancer (cell cycle/apoptosis genes) are what are bred in. They are highly unlikely to be transmitted.
Slide the cover blow on the magnetic disk whilst spinning. Maybe it was just a dust bunny that crawled in your disk.
