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
* you need to buy a quality Qi charger. Lots of the cheap ones on Amazon are aweful. Having purchased 11 and shipped back 7 to Amazon, I personally recommend the Gmyle Qi black pad, but they are out of stock of the microUSB port one in black (useful if you want to rapid charge faster). A good charger does 750mA screen on, 1A screen off. There are some apps with the ability to monitor current draw, set to log when screen off so you can track performance. Many of the cheaper chargers will start at 1A but after a weak peter out to 400mA or so which, I agree, is too slow. Usually replacing the wall-wart with a solid supply is all that's necessary, or just buy a better Qi charger.
* you have one at your desk at work, and at home at your computer, and by your night stand. For $10 each that's cheap convenience. You leave it on the pad any time you're at the station.
* your current solution of just using the quick charge still wears out the microUSB port. I mounted a pad inside the CD tray of my car using rubber feet as guides. Pretty convenient, but most trips are short enough that I need to use a rapid charger.
There was a china one just a couple months ago, then this one, and then one in the last few years I thought.
Also, on every single A-320 flight I've been on, during takeoff and once during landing, there has been a violent, high frequency vibration/shudder throughout the entire plane, right as the plane nose-ups and leaves the runway.
It doesn't worry me, but I do think it's ridiculous that they allowed that past QA. I'm not making this up, and it's not just me, I've recognized it at least 4 times. I use this to fuel my anti-european sentiments.
