Well, at least Myrtle allows me to go in the car-pool lane.
But- she talks too much.
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
Nicolas Cage just drove by my house really fast shouting into a cell phone. Should I be concerned?
Well, don't let him in, unless he's brought his brother Faraday along.
I hope that an easy text will be developed from this in the next few years. I couldn't imagine walking into a haze of Alzheimer's without knowing about it. This is one of those tests that I will ABSOLUTELY not be missing once I book it in.
Ummm.. don't you remember?
You had one of those tests last week. You told me so.

Gasoline burns hotter than hydrogen, but thanks to the Hindenburg crash video, we don't have hydrogen cars either.
Gasoline burns, hydrogen explodes. There's a difference. And the issues with hydrogen cars are a multi-paragraph post that I don't feel like writing right now, but (lousy energy density, present impossibility of storage, no infrastructure) are the main reasons, not lingering Hindenburg memories. Who on earth modded GP Insightful?
Wrong and Wrong.
Gasoline explodes AND Hydrogen explodes.
Gasoline burns AND Hydrogen burns.
E.G.- Gasoline EXPLODES inside your Car's IC engine. Surprise! That is how a gasoline engine works.
But you can burn it on a wick- but you had better be careful when the flame creeps down to the container of gasoline and air. That's why we don't use gasoline in coal-oil lanterns.
As well, Hydrogen will burn, if it is controlled by a small nozzle such as a welder's torch.
And- Why we do not use Hydrogen in cars? IT's TOO DAMN EXPENSIVE! And hard to make and control!
Gasoline is quite easy to make from Catalytic crackers. You can do this to make Hydrogen also, but whats the point?
You are still stuch refining fossil fuels. AND AND- Hydrogen is a shitload harder to store and control than Gasoline!
And guess what? At STP, there is much more hydrogen in a gallon of gasoline, than in a gallon of hydrogen.
Figure THIS one out!
I haven't read Scientific American lately.. Are BMW and Shell still inserting those ridiculous "Hydrogen Cars - The FUTURE!" advertisements? The SciAm ad agency must be giggling all the way to the bank...
The article does state that you need 5 of 7 to restore.
So if three of them should happen to suffer an unfortunate "accident", everything is totally screwed?
YES! But I say we get all seven, just to be sure!
And, perhaps Al Gore also, for starting this jimcrackery in the first place.
Frankly, I'm tired of this interweb nonsense with all its tubes.
I would like to get back to my productive REAL-WORLD job. (Fashioning grapplegrommets out of laminated chickenfat)
Hey- the interweb was fun, but it (and this slashdot jibber-jabber) has gone on long enough, don't you think?
Time to get back to work, ladies!
I'm buying a plane ticket to Ottawa shortly. I suggest that any of you
Make it right before you make it faster.
