a machine should never be given the freedom to replicate itself unless it also has the capacity to improve itself.
I'd love to reform taxes but you want to retain your ability to grant credits to green companies
the time cube was right, partially right, partially wrong, and wrong all at once, simultaneously, in four, 24-hour quadrants of rightness.
just use internet explorer, or stay on slashdot all day
What is the sound of one hand clapping?
Massless particles travel at c in their local frame of reference, always. Having mass in the way just makes the path it takes longer. The researchers who "stopped" light trapped it inside a crystal, while it was "stopped" the energy existed as excited atoms inside the crystal.
From an outside perspective light can appear to be propagating very slowly, but from the perspective of the photon it is always traveling at the same speed. In this vein though, I wonder if it's correct to say that light propagates instantly and we only observe a time dimension because we are traveling through time.
hm, they should make a movie about that
At least you didn't write "Serves me right for reading coffee before drinking my morning Slashdot."
thanks, I was wondering why it tasted so bad
I know this adds absolutely nothing to the convo but I had to say this made my whole damn day!
you don't sound very
Monster truck? Monster cables!
Yes, all those blind drivers need tactile feedback on the turn signal.
I see what you did there....
but they don't!
they often tear at high velocity, and require significant refurbishment after every use
Extremely funny, but I bet, that small modification might happen that won't increase the weight issue too much. Lot's of nifty ideas floating around here.
some of them crash and burn
Using fuel for hydraulics is standard practice for rocket and jet engines. It is really a given. Using a pressurized total loss hydraulic system is... totally normal design.
fixed that for you
this sort of assholery is why I don't bother with slashdot.
It is, in general, a very negative experience. Good riddance, right? ok. whatever.
"Unwilling != incapable"
We throw away ~half the food we produce in this country. We burn it or bury it, but god forbid we give it away.
Likewise, we happily pay to incarcerate a larger percentage of our population than any other country in the world, but we'll be *damned* if we will let people have a little apartment - which would be cheaper.
wow, this sinks to a new level of cognitive dissonance
no, female side definitely still wears
