Don't forget that Fermilab has a music video, Particle Business! https://www.youtube.com/watch?...
There was this boss 80s movie called Chopping Mall about mall security robots killing some teens that snuck into the mall at night to eat pizza and make love.
This story reminds me of that horror movie. Except the teenager part. And the killing part.
But totally the mall security robots part!
In order to protect the TSA agents, the TSA should be disbanded. You can't shoot what's not there!
Five years ago I invested in a Samsung television. It's been great and I don't want to replace it. It has the features (120hz) and size (52") I want plus looks nice on the wall. I made sure to get LCD versus plasma to help keep electricity costs down. I held off on buying a DLP because I knew I would grow tired of the volume it would take up in the living room. Research showed that the LCD panel was from a Samsung/Sony plant in South Korea with units having a 3% failure rate versus 5% for its competition. Who looks for an excuse to replace their main television frequently? Not me. If you bought something with the intention of replacing or demoting it after a few years of ownership, by all means spend your money.
Primarily, you'll want to build an honest rapport with the other person. Get inside their head a little and allow them to brag A LOT. Ask how they found the place and what they did to change it. You'll want to breeze through all of the high level and important documentation first so you'll have a baseline. Take as much notes as you can. Ask what websites/resources they use to make it easier to follow in their tracks. Explain your situation to them. It will humanize yourself in their mind and you might be able to engage their compassion for you. Perhaps they would be available to answer questions after they leave! Is there budget money for them to be used as a compensated resource? Hopefully they like the idea of helping others and putting some scratch in their pocket.
There's a fun fact about the wheels of Curiosity. They spell out "JPL" in Morse Code in the sand of Mars.
Basically they are moving the instrument to a facility that can make a better stream of particles to steer into it.
"creating effective shark deterrents"
Just say it... creating effecting shark repellents.
... I wish there was a tasteful way to make a Star Wars joke.
Artists always find a way of creating.
If you can't have a model drone, you might as well get a "Droney - the friendly surveillance drone" tshirt!
Full disclosure, I own this shirt and it is soft.
I love these guys: http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/world/iran/qaher-313.htm
David Cenciotti noted that the plane featured “implausible aerodynamics and Hollywood sheen” and was laughably small for a fighter jet. He also commented thatthe cockpit was far too basic for a sophisticated aircraft, and appeared “similar to those equipping small private planes.
I'll help you with your math. "Keep the monkey alive" > "not damaging a warhead"
I will keep my hopes up while knowing the pursuits of Iran/NK have evil alternatives. What I won't do is paint everything I see with negativity. That's not how I want to live. Please, continue living your life with your way. I will celebrate the good news when I see it.
Thank you AC for pointing out the obvious. Since Iran and North Korea share missile technology, you can assume what one can do, the other can do. This Slashdot story was different. There was a directive to keep an animal alive. This knowledge and ability to keep that monkey safe for the trip gives me hope. I'm not going to apologize for focusing on the positives. Eat shit, coward.
