He'd have a lotta splainin' to do?
So he plays using "automatic" skill. Every target shooter knows that place. Every cook flipping an egg knows that place. Hell, everybody knows that place. When you're first learning to drive, making a left-hand turn or backing out of a parking place requires lots of thought about HOW to do it. After long practice, you don't think about it, you simply do it. The trick, in soccer, or shooting, or writing code, anything that requires sustained performance, is to stay in that place.
Good thing the government took their guns away first.
WTF does a large neutron star look like then?
Like a small neutron star. Only bigger.
Black holes and neutron stars are both examples of stellar remnants, where fusion has stopped, so they're not emitting nearly as much energy as previously, just residual effects of temperature, magnetism and gravity. In the case of black holes, we've been assuming that the radius had collapsed to the point where the escape velocity was greater than the speed of light, hence, "black". Even if that isn't the case, they're not necessarily going to be easy to spot.
Holy crap. The referenced paper is dense enough to have its own Schwarzschild radius.
Now how is Michio Kaku going to portray black holes as marauding monsters that travel around like itinerant serial killers, gobbling up everything in their path?
Yeah, but then you have to explain what "hypergolic" means. You'd probably get more traction with non-geeks using a matter/antimatter analogy.
The fact that they came up with that name and didn't see any irony in it tells you a lot. Remember, "they hate us for our freedom".
The whole point of being the secret police is that they're the SECRET fucking police. We've allowed literally half of the government agencies to be consolidated under one uber-agency whose charter is some nebulous bullshit about "keeping the fatherland safe". And then people are SURPRISED when it follows the example of the Gestapo and the KGB.
Anyone denigrating "Oooooooh! Shiny!!" CLEARLY doesn't understand Slashdot.
Gosh, I wonder what item on YouTube THAT could point to...
That's right up there with the Windows Explorrer thing that executed arbitrary code from a bitmap file when you visited the directory it lived in. Kudos to Google for keeping up.
Yeah, and it makes this odd "whooshing" sound.
