Comment Re:Being a policeman is only easy in a police stat (Score 1) 620

I would take the plane without the security rather than let them take more of our rights away. I don't think a full body visual scanner is a Reasonable precaution, mostly because a metal detector, and a bag scanner are good enough. If someone really wanted to take over a plane, they would, and it would be easy to do, even with all our security in place. What we are doing is letting ourselves be pushed around by the idea of "fear" instead of thinking rationally about the sitution and realizing that our rights are worth more than a few lives here and there.

If we can get a superconducting material to emit a pulse of gravitational radiation, would that then be able to be further refined to become an artificial gravity generator? That would make long distance space travel much easier to participate in, because we wouldn't have to worry about the effects of low/no gravity on the human body for extended periods of time.

This seems pretty interesting to me.

Be careful when a loop exits to the same place from side and bottom.
