Now thats an interesting thought.
However, I'm pretty sure that was taken care of before it became a real option for the Ukranian government.
Regarding the nuclear weapons situation.
According to: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/N...
Peak stockpile 1,080 warheads (1992)
Current stockpile 0 total
Maximum missile range NA
So.. no current stockpile. Sounds good to me.
But also according to Wiki. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/P...
Notice third column
"Satellite Orion", "Midrange Orion", "Super Orion"
Ship diameter, 17–20 m, 40 m, 400 m
Ship mass, 300 t, 1000–2000 t, 8,000,000 t
Number of bombs, 540, 1080, 1080
Individual bomb mass, 0.22 t, 0.37–0.75 t, 3000 t
This can't help one speculate, even with all this Megatons to Megawatts program going on.
What happened to those 1080 Ukraniean warheads?
Above numbers are based on available technology and materials from 1958
Both factors have improved somewhat since.
Of cause, as usual all the people that would be capable of pulling of such an accomplishment are either retired or dead.
Including one that have actually piled up enough money to actually do it, with some help of cheap Ukranian Megatons, making SpaceX, Virgin Galactic and Armadillo Aroespace look like wooses. http://9to5mac.com/2011/08/16/...
Did he actually do it?
Time to wake up and smell the Coffee + methane
"I love the smell of mehane in the morning"
How hard can it really be?
Now take a huge strong tungsten cylinder, with thick walls and fill it with uranium 238.
Put a hook in one end and let it melt it's way down to reptilian depts.
Then add water.
Before making ANY changes, we need to stabilize and make even the most basic features consistent.
WebKit, Blink. It shouldn't really matter.
The sad facts are that HTML5 is a no go on mobile devices at the moment because of compatibility issues.
Especially on one of the mobile OS'es. None mentioned, none forgotten.
It's like a boxing match where HTML5 is in the canvas, nobody knows who Blink is and both WebKit and Blink are leaving the ring in opposite directions.
Any spare ( one way ) tickets for Mars left?
I didn't know that BS was magnetic.
How come you know all this shit!
Frank Kendall allowed two F-35 suppliers, Northrop Grumman Corp and Honeywell International Inc, to use Chinese magnets for the new warplane's radar system, landing gears and other hardware
That is worse than buying the whole plane, because the weakest link, in this case magnets, will end up being a critical factor anyways.
So you might as well save taxpayer money by purchasing whole planes.
Perhaps it is time to figure out an alternative source of rare earth minerals instead.
The poo is magnetic and thus easier to get rid of if standing in the right direction because of the magnetic pull?
If true. Standing in the right orientation would also prevent it from being pushed the wrong way up into the palate.
>Then what should be used instead to treat, say, depression?
Perhaps there is no cure for real depression.
To some, being depressed is like being unhappy or having a downer. For a few, it is a serious physical condition that is very hard to change.
Maybe it would be a good idea to understand what depression is as a condition, before trying to find a cure.
But eating the right food and doing regular exercising is usually better than what your doctor will subscribe for you.
> It is a very blunt instrument, just slightly better than a lobotomy.
You could also argue that it is similar to using a heavy rubber hammer to stir up all the grey matter.
Nobody knows what actually happens when flashing someones scalp with thousands of volts.
Changes to the brain tissue will occur at some level. IQ and memory drops significantly (over 10% to 20%), but the actual brain damage is not visible.
The fact that ECT is being used today is sickening. However it is difficult to control this kind of malpractice.
How can you measure how receptive one individual is compared to the "norm"?
How do you control the mad doctor who blasts his patients with experimentally insane voltages?
Seems like the cranks are out int the open again, free to experiment on innocent victims. Just like in the sixties and seventies.
Perhaps ECT should be allowed only by doctors that can pass +100points on a stand IQ test after taking a series of hard ECT doses over a couple of weeks.
I would love to listen to someone trying to advocate for ECT, backed up by reasonable arguments after such a "treatment".
It is doubtful that anyone could do that without drifting of into oblivion during such an argument. It might fun watching though.
How many doctors actually take their own medicine?
