which is likely not all that much
"likely" doesn't cut much mustard with orbital mechanics. The reason for having the excesses of fuel in the second significant digit of your fuel load is because you're expecting to have to be precise in the third digit, and to need to make several attempts at it.
"likely" doesn't even deal with the first significant digit.
Sorry, I've been having to resist the temptation to ram some "order of magnitude" arguments back down a certain someone's throat for the last few days. It shows.
Use humans instead?
Or use proteins derived from human blood and/ or immune system components. (Which may be just what the other companies looking at this procedure are doing.)
(yeah, me bad)
Why? Common sense proposition on slashdot? Yeah - hand in your membership card then go out and gut yourself. Common sense isn't popular here.
Then at the end of TFS, they've slipped to discussing a completely different thing : offshoring.
Why are they conflating two different things? Sloppy thinking? Or is it just common racism, not wanting to have those smelly foreigners here with their strange foods, different ideas and wrongly coloured skins.
Are the authors "Native American" "First Nation" people? Or some sort of second-rate immigrant?
I can't say that I'm terribly happy to be doing my job on one continent, with people looking over my shoulders from three different continents. If you ask me, they should be sitting out here and putting their own lives at risk. But I don't particularly care which other continents they're on. Just that they're on a different continent from the one that I'm working on this week, while criticising my action choices.
At a guess, you're sticking the tape back onto itself, not sticking it to the waxy cuticle of the plants (which would scar the plant, if it didn't just get sloughed with the outermost layer of cuticle. That would probably work in a greenhouse, but if you're threading your plants through cable transits, snaking them along trays and up walls
While the bluestones are a part of Stonehenge, they're far from the dominant structures. They may be the second or third oldest structures on the site though. Most of the bluestones (which originally (probably) formed an outer ring around the site, before the Sarsen trilithons were excavated, hauled to the site, hammered to shape, and erected) are under a metre high, and some of them are completely buried and were only discovered by excavation in the 1920s. Also, the bluestones have been moved at least twice - each time having their keels re-shaped (hammered and chipped) to fit into the sockets cut into the Chalk for them (the chips are still found in the sockets when excavated, often along with hammer stones). They also had some centuries residing in a stone store away from the main site, before being substantially re-shaped at this "dump" (or store-room ; look at a church which was being re-built after the War and see if you can tell the difference from a dump) and moved back to the Stonehenge site.
Whatever the original purpose of the bluestones was, they've had multiple uses, and multiple re-shapings over the millennium-plus of their major use. Regardless of the opinions of the RCA guy, re-shaping a brittle object is going to change it's acoustic properties nearly as much as burying it (partly) in a compliant medium is going to change it's properties. But I'm sure the music producer could put him straight on that.
But I'm curious what the legal justification would be.
The justification is "You don't have a right to be here. You don't have permission to be here. Go away. Now."
Remember the situation : you have gone to someone else's country (therefore their rules apply ; there is no such thing as international law, and many countries don't subscribe to a particular set of "human rights"), and been refused entry. You never did have a "right" to be there, and now your permission to be there has been rescinded (check you visa terms and conditions : the country you're visiting can do this at any time without giving reason - generally ; some European countries have agreed to give up this right for citizens of other countries, but even within Europe it doesn't generally apply). That's it. End of necessary justification. Your permission has been rescinded.
For the rest - I would advise you to read the terms and conditions for the next visa you apply for. I have to have two passports, because I apply for so many visas at short notice. I RTFT&C, tedious though it is. You may be surprised about how few rights you have in most countries.
TFP isn't confused. The coverage by a journalist working for Science Magazine may be. (I RTFP a few days ago, and promoted it to several geological discussion lists.)
Yeah but if it's green you'd better wear a condom.
Why? Captain Kirk never did, even when he was doing the green chicks in the Shatner.
At this time, the cause of death isn't clear, and there are multiple credible possibilities.
(The word you're looking for is anthropogenic.)
You insensitive sight-ist clod! He could be blind, and groping for a Freudian Slit
Not to mention the invention of the United States.
Not ot mention the human species.
Actually, that far back, you're pre-dating all of the likely common ancestors of the anthropoid apes, with the possible exception of the common ancestor of the Pongoidae and the rest of the anthropoid apes.
just imaging what it must have been like trying to get 30, 30 meter whales to turn around
The deaths occurred over a period of thousands, probably 10 thousand plus, of years. HArdly a whale jam.
And the sizes were more like 10m, not 30m.
But for someone who's not RTFA, you're doing well. Just imagine how much you'd know if you'd actually RTFP. It is Open Access, after all.
