Comment The men in the jungle (Score 1) 1365

The men in the jungle , by Norman Spinrad.

About 20 pages in, the hero of the story eats baby meat. And it just gets worse from there. a bunch of humans stuck on a planet with nothing to eat, devolves into a place that you just try and expunge from records, in the hope that noone goes there.

Comment containers for F2 storage. (Score 1) 80

according to http://www.theodoregray.com/periodictable/Elements/009/index.s7.html , its pretty difficult to make a container to store pure F2 gas, maybe this is a way to at least transport it, assuming you have enough of the rock, or can make more of it.

Also, you smelt it? whats the safe distance you can get near this stuff (before/after you crush it) without doing nasty damage to yourself.

I'm all for computer dating, but I wouldn't want one to marry my sister.
