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).
An architect is, admittedly, a jack of all trades, ace of none.
only because mad bong hits arent a trade.
Unless you *find* the energy source, all you have is DREAMS.
Wait, where did all the nuclear reactors go?
They blew up after exactly 50 years.
Actually, he traded immortality for the knowledge of good and evil. Essentially for a loss of innocence. Pretty crappy trade if you ask me.
Also, it is fairly certain that Adam and Eve were banging regularly already. (They were both naked, physically mature, and had all the functional bits as far as we know.)
So he traded immortality for the knowledge of kinky sex?
Clearly a Sox fan...
That's the beauty of Common Law: Everybody is simultaneously guilty and not guilty of some crime, thanks to judicial precedence.
Israel is always the "Cowboy Neal" option in Eurovision.
...spanning the "afsluitdijk".
Cat just jump on your keyboard?
Appropriately enough, the language sounds like a cat expectorating a hairball.
What is even worse, is scientific shows like Mythbusters use BOTH systems. Usually they use metric, usually it's F but sometimes it's C. Weighs usually pounds, but they also have used (kilo)grammes. Distance is usually inches and feet, but when bouncing a baseball they were measuring the bounce in cm - while other parts of the same experiment were using inches and feet.
There is no consistency, and that alone can give rise to errors. It doesn't really matter whether one uses cm or inches, or C or F as long as it's consistent. Forget to write down the unit once, and it's guesswork that's left. Have a thermometer with both scales - oops which scale were we using again this time?
You write "(kilo)grammes," so it's possible you're watching it on UK television. The US and Europe (in countries that don't dub or lector) have two different voiceovers, and the European one translates all the US customary figures to metric. It's not as unnatural in the US broadcast.
It's still pretty jarring television; you're right about that.
Just to be clear, they are absolutely not implying it has melted through the containment, but, rather, the reactor pressure vessel.
I have no doubt he died doing what he loved.
It's not the fall that kills you; it's the sudden deceleration.
I pay about $0.10/kWh. (1000 W per Hour)
The figure in the OP is highly non-standard usage. In the US, only the kilowatt is a unit of energy.
This troll made a lot more sense 7 or 8 years ago when it wasn't much quicker and easier to install and maintain Linux than any other general use system.
Even if you factor out install time (since most people get their Windows and Mac systems preloaded), the time you spend maintaining your system very quickly tilts the balance back in favor of Linux.
Don't be that guy...
