loading it with explosives and using it as a guided missile. This last concern is the only one that I considered a real issue, but even that is not significantly more dangerous than loading up a regular van full of explosives with a timer, then setting the timer to explode before you leave the vehicle next to a school
I see that much more dangerous because the criminal doesn't have to overcome the fear of getting caught in the vehicle with that load, or getting caught by cameras as he leaves.
And he doesn't have to stop or park somewhere. And he doesn't need any timer, just a remote to command the explosion, whenever he wants, even before target if things don't go as he wishes.
The onboard sound card has ZERO effect on the quality of the audio. The bits are traveling directly, unmolested from the application generating them to the amplifiers in the speakers.
That's what I thought for a long time and then I discovered that I was wrong (so you are - no offence).
Digital sound can be altered on the way between application and the DAC interpretation, even with TosLink (optical).
Have a look about the clock jitter problem, or phase noise
In Cambodia there is also countdown on main traffic lights for cars.
That's much better: it's easier to wait when you know how long and you see that you will soon be green lite.
This leads to better behavior of the drivers.
And the green pedestrian light is an animated running green guy
Then I suggest they set up a second list where particular individuals would be listed as "can actually fly despite name on no-fly".
So if a Todd Smith has his name put on no-fly list for some reasons, an other Todd Smith would be able to ask thorough check and have his identification put on the do-fly so he would no longer be banned from flying.
If it can match colors up to 94% of "nature's true palette" , maybe it could be used to display a test for tetrachromate people ?
I always wanted to make such a test, but I was quite difficult with real pigments.
I hope some application will try to make such a test, it would be amazing !
For quite a long time I thought that, no matter what, if you eat less energy than your body needs, you will loose weight.
Then I learned about this "Thyroid condition" case...
In that case, even when people eat less than their body really needs, the body will stockpile the fat, to the point that the person can't sustain her functions and will faint.
So, those people don't have a lot of choice if they don't want to faint, they need to eat more.
How many "Thyroid condition" do we have in the population ?
I don't know. Anyone has some information ?
I guess that's not very common.
But usually I see fat people at self-service restaurant with
=> meat, sauce and hydrocarbs
for every single meal!
While I usually take:
=> various raw vegetables without sauce
=> not always meat, but at least one vegetables (fries not excluded but once a week at most)
=> yogourt, fruit or occasional pastry
Guess what ? My weight is stable since over 20 years ( +/- 500g at most), and I'm rather slim.
That's why I show now mercy at all for fat people.
The vast majority of them eat too much, I can see that everywhere.
[..] you can believe that this particular theory is the right one [...]
This is not a belief, since I wouldn't say that I *believe* that it is the right one, no...
I would rather say that I'm convinced and that I agree with the reasoning of this theory, given the facts and using logic.
And it is by far the best, and in fact the only one that is still valid and was reinforced during a century of observations, also with predictions comforted by new observations.
There is no other theory left about evolution, and this one was remarkable for its scientific validation.
With all those facts and observations, if you still have doubts, then you must also have some about any theory, even wonder is Earth is flat or not, who knows ?
And have absolute doubt, question even reality...
You can, if you want.
BTW, "believe" might be an ambiguous word in English, like "Free" (Libre or Gratis?), this can be confusing for some people.
Do they say "believe" for "having the belief" - with faith - or just "thinking it's right and valid" - no faith needed - as it can be used casually.
Mixing the two is really confusing.
Thanks for the story
You may also point the the original article (PDF version), there is an handful of examples more.
As soon as I saw his eyebrows and glasses, I figured out the video wasn't worth watching.
This actually saves time, even when you compare with text only media.
