You could, and it would be the smart thing to do, but you'd have to stop mono-cropping. With thousands of acres of nothing but almond trees the bees don't have anything to eat when the almonds aren't in bloom.
I don't think a super-flare would have much effect on a pre-electronic civilization. It might start a new religion because of super-intense auroras.
I think -ghazi is the new suffix for that. Ballghazi!
Could they sue? My understanding is that trademarks are only valid as long as you are actively using them, and Ford hasn't made a Model T in decades.
My thought too. $1 per person plus $0.50 per person per year to operate.
Eliminate any exceptions to the CAFE standard for SUVs.
No, just eliminate the CAFE standards entirely and tax gas so it is $10/gallon. Then market forces will give us more efficient vehicles.
Electrons are repulsed by their fellow electrons, making them most definitely not homosexual. They are known to have violent relationships with positrons, and clingy relationships with protons.
Yes, those death were not from N2O but from lack of oxygen (as the abstract clearly states). It turns out not breathing oxygen is really bad for you. I don't think anyone has ever died directly from N2O, unless a cylinder fell on them. (but to address the original comment, N2O should be just as effective as N2 for killing people, as would helium or any other inert gas, because it is the lack of oxygen that kills)
Fabric plus liquid nitrogen is a bad combination. You can safely dip you hand in liquid nitrogen (briefly) (assuming no rings, gloves, or other items on you hands) because it has low specific heat and your body heat quickly evaporates it to form a layer of air around your hand. Spill a little on your clothes and you will instantly get frost bite.
4% is just for death row. The percentage of innocent people in the prison population as a whole is probably much higher.
Or a safe-deposit box at a bank if you don't need a whole storage locker. And they tend to have good fire suppression units in them.
Tell that to California
We'll he's right in that inhaling the methane won't be the thing that kills you.
People aren't going to forget, because it will be a really big news story whenever the execution happens.
