That particular episode was written by Conan O'Brien. Phil, while brilliant in his own right, just read the line. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0701189/fullcredits?ref_=tt_ov_wr#writers
That's just not true. Microwaves do not cook "from the inside out." That's almost literally an old wives tale. At 2GHz, almost all radiation would be absorbed in the outer layer of skin and re-radiated as heat. Even for EM that can better penetrate solid/fleshy objects, the energy that penetrates will be attenuated because some portion will be absorbed at the exterior, and if the energy at the surface wasn't enough to trigger a pain response, then you probably (definitely) have nothing to worry about.
That said, there are two items of note: 1) EM may travel better along bones as they may be less dense (in birds, for example) or natural conductors (nerves), but fortunately nerves are the things we *want* to be stimulated, and unless you have a bone sticking out, the radiation must still pass through the skin, which has nerve endings. 2) Exposure to an extremely high EM energy source might be enough to cause thermal damage before you can react, but that's not a risk that's unique to electromagnetic radiation -- any energy in quantity can kill you.
The tweet was accurate, but North Korea accidentally the missile.
Mostly false. On a color CRT, there are phosphors embedded in the screen, either in a vertically alternating triangular array (traditional) or in vertical stripes (trinitron). The quantity of each phosphor limits the maximum resolution of the screen. As with an LCD, a CRT can display resolutions lower than its ideal, or maximum resolution, through pixel doubling and/or more complicated processes, but no higher. If you had a screen coated in a single colored phosphor, as with some oscilloscopes, then your resolution would indeed be limited by beam width and minimum beam deflection angle, but I'll limit our discussion to color TVs since there are no monochrome LCD displays (that I'm aware of).
...then thanks for the interest-free loan.
Surely there'd be more than one trigger for an electronic throttle to shut down, and using the emergency brake should be number 1 or 2 on the priority list.
Uh, no. I have an electronic throttle and I've driven for almost a block before realizing I forgot to release the parking brake.
Also his vehicle was specially modified for disabled drivers according to, ahem, *the fucking article.* No details are given as to the modifications though. If it was a typical vehicle, the answer is to throw it in neutral, and if that doesn't work (which it would), then just rear-end the car in front of you and you'll come to a stop eventually. Usually better than careening out of control for 125 miles over the course of an hour.
Foot off the gas is almost exactly the opposite of WOT.
This should be obvious, but he's not facing more jail time than murder on a per-count basis. If you go out and assault 100 people at random before you're caught, you're probably facing a longer sentence than a single count of murder as well. If you can't do the time, don't do the crime(s).
Better known by his stage name "The Amazing Randi"
I think at this point he's really better known as James Randi. Maybe back in the 60s and 70s when he was actually performing, but many Slashdotters may not have even been born then.
Yes, they exist. I should get one, but the idea of doing all the work to set it up, only to do more work while I work, is somewhat off-putting.
Pro tip: The boring, stupid assholes generally don't leave.
c.1300 (mid-13c. as a surname), from L. pirata "sailor, corsair, sea robber" (source of Sp., It. pirata, Du. piraat, Ger. Pirat), lit. "one who attacks (ships)," from Gk. peirates "brigand, pirate," lit. "one who attacks," from peiran "to attack, make a hostile attempt on, try," from peira "trial, an attempt, attack," from PIE root *per- "try" (cf. L. peritus "experienced," periculum "trial, experiment; attempt on or against; enterprise;" see peril). Meaning "one who takes another's work without permission" first recorded 1701; sense of "unlicensed radio broadcaster" is from 1913.
... and the alternative is not public domain.
Maybe yours isn't.
14 years with no progression? A skeptic might wonder if you had/have MS at all and whether your original doctor was right to be reluctant with aggressive treatment. It's unfortunate that there are no proof-positive tests for MS.
Funny you should mention that. Apparently, they're changing the spelling to "jullible" to more correctly reflect the proper pronunciation.
