My wearing glasses is proof I was abducted by aliens, right?
Star Whales coming soon to a galaxy near you!!
Woah!! Let's calm down here! We should start with engineering space jellyfish first and work up....
This is what the acronym means for many people who play online games. I just wanted you guys to know so you'll understand the giggles coming from the back of the room at every meeting.
The unfortunate thing about pet rats is they just don't live that long.
*nodnod* I'm hoping the Gambian Pouched Rat will be domesticated more over the years. Their lifespans are ~8 years. APOPO seems to be doing okay with them so far.
Also, I would mod you up if I could just based on your username.
Lifeforms... *bleep blup bleep bleep* you tiny little lifeforms... *bleep blup bleep bleep* you precious little lifeforms... *snipsnapsnap clap* where are you? *dootootootootoo bleebleeblue*
The Portland city water supply is continually tested, and those tests have repeatedly shown the water to be of higher quality (in terms of dissolved solids/minerals and contaminants) than most of the city/municipal water supplies in the United States -- despite the lack of treatment and open reservoirs.
Yep. Looking at kidney death rates on this map tends to agree with that:
If you want to watch the scariest movie you'll ever see, then check out The Day After right now. It's a 30 year-old film about what would happen if the US and Russia nuked each other. The imagery and savagery are horrific -- not for the amazing visual effects, but that they are applied to innocent bystanders just living life at home.
It should be required viewing for everyone beating the war drums.
"It's so beautiful. It's hard to believe these spores could kill me."
Do you really think the government could get its act together enough to put a person on the moon again? Have you been paying attention?
We could just have someone climb the paperwork?
My cave does just fine already. Free AC and heat year round too. Mold is kinda a problem. And bears.
I find it hard to call this a "laser rifle." Aside fromt he fact that rifles are rifles because of the rifling in the barrel (grooves which cause the bullet to spin), Rifles have a medium to long range. This appears to have only a slightly greater effective range then my Oxy-Fuel torch (which is to say, less then a foot).
It looks like it'd be simple to move the lens and refocus the beam further away. Then the blower to get the debris out of the way wouldn't work though. And it'd probably also be really hard to keep the thing on target. I can't even hold a little laser pointer without looking like a spaz.
Never going to happen in the US.
The fluoride does a pretty good job, yes?
Why add the extra assumptions in there if they don't contribute to the theory?
That's exactly what I'm thinking. Excluding possibilities adds assumptions to the theory as well. Evolution doesn't need a statement concerning the FSM either way.
That is like saying "why would you use math to figure out the area of that rectangle when you can just guess randomly until you find a fitting number". Both solutions work but one is intelligent.
Scientists use the Monte Carlo method all the time. Depends on the experiment.
What if the intelligent designer just wanted to use evolution? I've never understood why the two solutions have to be exclusive.
