Yeah, well, that's just, like, your opinion, man
I signed up for the news letter and was planning on applying but they want 38 fucking dollars as a registration fee. Screw that. If I actually thought this was gonna go anywhere I'd gladly pay it. If it was 5 bucks or so I'd gladly pay it just on a lark even thinking as I do that this will probably amount to nothing. 40 bucks just to apply for something that will probably fail and that I probably won't get picked for even if it does succeed? Fuck that noise!
Just because you don't need AC doesn't mean it's not nice to have, especially if you're not burning a bunch of electricity to get it.
Paradoxically you can actually run an aircon off waste heat using an absorption cooler so central heat (or steam depending on how the plant is set up) can be just as useful in summer as in winter. A lot of places in NYC are air-conditioned this way actually...
Your ideas are intriguing to me and I wish to subscribe to your newsletter.
It's not vapor. They have working examples of the tech and it's evolutionary rather than revolutionary anyway so it's not like there'd be any real doubt that it could be done even if they didn't have stations up and running already. At this point the big barriers are getting different automakers to agree to a unified standard on swappable batteries and getting cars and stations built that follow that standard. Admittedly that's not trivial, but it's hardly to the point that I'd call the concept 'vapor'.
The point of bicycle lights isn't for when you're riding on the sidewalk, it's for when you're riding on the road and don't wanna get squashed by a car cause they can't see you.
Oh certainly, that can probably solve things for a year or two, depending on just how they were gonna allocate that 500k, but long term you have to remember that FreeBSD is a community project and, in the long term, sponsoring those things is part of how you make the community grow and thrive.
Actually Gorillas have a very tiny penis for their body size (~1.5 inches long) so as far as being forcibly fucked in the ass by an animal goes they certainly wouldn't be the worst possible option there.
Because the corporate media does such a good job reporting on all the illegal shit our military gets up to...
You can't just "decide to master faster than light travel" because it's probably not possible. See, as far as we can tell right now, any two of the following can coexist (but not all three): faster than light travel, relativity and causality. Relativity has been experimentally verified to the best of our ability and hasn't come up wrong yet, and if causality can be broken you can get all sorts of weird shenanigans and paradoxes happening. That's not to say it's 100% impossible that there are ways around that, but it's nothing I'd bet the farm on...
My understanding of the problem is that, in our current models, causality only propagates at the speed of light...
Gauss rifles had been around since the star league, as with most things the Clan versions were just better than their IS equivalents.
