I watched that again last weekend. It was as painful as I remembered.
As often as hurricanes make the news in Florida, over the last 10 years, they've caused me to lose power twice, each time lasting maybe a day. Lightning takes out the power at least 10 times a year, usually lasting 15 minutes to an hour. The latter is easily handled by a UPS.
Yes, but this is APPLIED SCIENCE
NO kidding! Half a pound of sodium in the water at a local park and the cop finished watching before coming to tell me 'that was pretty cool, fireworks were not allowed in the park'. Or having a job at 16 at a local sporting goods store where I accepted ammunition in lieu of pay. Weekends during quail season were spent with a bunch of teenagers walking up and down fields shooting with our own shotguns... (not dad's). The trucks in the high school parking lot had gun racks and nobody wigged out if someone forgot and left a gun in one from the weekend. It never crossed anyone's mind to go shoot up our friends. le sigh.
If I'd been prosecuted this way for some of the "experiments" my brothers and I did as teenagers, I'd be doing life.
No kidding. We'd be under the jail. There used to be a time in this great land of ours when kids could play with things like black powder, acetylene, and sodium and all we'd get is a finger wag by the authorities and maybe have to pay for a trash can we would turn inside out.
I wonder if they've looked at Kerguelen yet, the undersea map shows a similar shelf.
Expressing ones opinion on the internet is like farting in a hurricane. You may feel better for a moment, but nobody's gonna care.
Point goes to fyngyrz. Even though I personally can't stand the static of HF, the dude speaks true.
I'm sure law enforcement would be happy to have the same tech.
My New New Years tradition will be playing Ingress in downtown Tampa.
Gotta spare up cycles for ingress.
1) Users are willing to wait for no more than 2 seconds for a video to start playing, with each additional second adding 6% to the abandonment rate.
2) Users with good broadband connectivity expect faster video load times and are even more impatient than ones on mobile devices.
3) Users who experience video freezing watch fewer minutes of the video than someone who does not experience freezing. A 1% freezing causes 5% less minutes watched.
4) Users who experience failures when they try to play videos are less likely to return to the same website in the future.
BIG data analyzed (260+ million minutes of video) and some cool new data analysis techniques used."

Its not like he killed it to make his quadcopter skin.
Yeah! It's not like he.... uh... so what if he did?
And apparently it comes with monospaced fonts, which is great for those of us who miss teletypes and typewriters.
Fixed that for you. Telegraph operators use handwriting. Teletype was what delivered a printed message with a mono-spaced font.
