"Highway speeds" is when you'd most want a low center-of-mass in terms of improving driving quality. If you're going to increase it for highway speeds, maybe just make it higher, always.
Actually with no fiber, you won't.

Someone is selling used Twinkies?
Just use a US-based proxy server to visit that page. That's how I listen to Pandora/Spotify.
To the people who replied to this post with reasoned arguments - Thank You. I was not passing any moral judgements regarding the externalized costs of fossil fuels - I personally think it's wrong coal power plants are allowed to do that. But I also think that our money, here and now, is better spent on wind and solar tech than on nuclear (0.5B failures like Solyndra notwithstanding). A time may come when the bang-for-buck shifts the other way, but it's not now. To my dear downmodder: Sorry, I learned my lesson, I will only ever post stuff that complies with the groupthink guidelines - please be kind enough to send me link where I can read them, before you downmod this post as well. Many thanks.
To my pro-nuclear friends: This is as clear evidence as you're gonna get why nuclear power is not taking off. It's not nut-job environmentalists, it's not NIMBY, it's not some grand conspiracy. Nuclear is just too freaking expensive to operate with any semblance of reasonable safety.
Why do you feel that argument have facts for those who think and arguments for those who reason?
Apparently Steve and I share the same taste in food, if not passwords. The pic being taken at Rudy's Can't Fail Cafe in Oakland CA who make a mean Guinness milkshake, yum. Highly recommended to those in the area.
Well, what did you expect?

sciencehabit writes "A surfacing whale is a sight to see, but it would be even more dramatic to watch one ply the ocean depths. Researchers have taken a step closer to doing just that with sophisticated radio-tagging technology and a new computer program that uses the data to recreate a whale's path underwater. The results, which look a bit like a whale riding a roller coaster (see video), are helping scientists understand how the school bus-sized beasts are able to take in enough food to sustain their great girth, and how underwater noises, such as sonar, might affect their well-being."

New headline: "PG&E Charged With Assault"
I've been a C/C++ programmer for a fair bit, and am starting to dabble in some web-dev for a startup idea a couple friends have. Can someone tell me how the newer versions of Rails/Ruby compare against the newer versions of Grails/Groovy? I don't want intend for this to be a troll/flame fest, I'm just under-informed on the tradeoffs. Thanks in advance for any info.
Never mind the million dollars, give us the source to all the drive-by-wire modules so we can find the race condition (literally!) for you.
It seems a secondary problem using SuperFetch, is that the HDD is woken up, or prevented from spinning-down when it otherwise could have been. ie. Bad notebook/netbook battery life. Anyone with insight into this?
