Where will we get the endless stream of videos of people hurting themselves doing foolish things? That's a pretty big share of the internet right there!
Way to miss the point. If you have the mindset of losing, you will lose. If you think your work is not marketable, you won't.
Do you know that fundamental science requires tools? Did you know that the best labs that find out amazing basic science findings get there by innovating amazing new tools? DO YOU RECOGNIZE THE REFEFRENCE TO JC VENTER? The human genome sequence is, in itself, hard to market and sell. The sequence was first found by one man, JC Venter. He beat a huge army of publicly funded labs. While those labs used existing technologies to each try to sequence parts of the genome and get together to glue sequences together, Venter innovated highly improved DNA sequencing technlology. And thus he sequenced the human genome first. Guess what followed? All of those labs, and more, bought his sequencing technology and the models to follow.
If you can't find something to sell then you're destined to beg for money. I'd love to see a world without money that allocates resource based on meritocracy... But that's not reality.
You may think I need to grow up, but I can guarantee you that you need to wake up and smell the coffee of capitalism and try to identify how to get what you want. If you're in the US and you will always beg for money, try your hardest to Elect Elizabeth Warren as president because she wants to double NIH funding.
If you choose to read it in an insulting way, it is insulting. Or you can understand the gist of it which is to say 'pull yourself up from your perceived limitations and do what is necessary to rise to a superior position in life." But.... You know.... You're interested in arguing about communication, and not staying on topic; The next generation of wasted life. I can guarantee you that you'll grow a lot more in life by staying focused. Then again, if you're here to learn about communication and not about the subject, this is right up your alley.
Right. But with good design, the water can be stored efficiently without evaporation, and the top of the container could possibly be engineered to collect/filter rainwater as well as an added benefit. I'm not trying to give you the best solution -- its just a simple idea I have always considered; loading electrical energy into physical potential energy by way of working against gravity. Maybe, instead, just run a big heavy chunk of metal up a notched pole? Then release it to spin a worm gear, to a large cog, then big generator as it slowly drops?
If I had resources, time, and money, I'd love to live out in a cabin somewhere and toy around with simplified energy storage solutions.
You should consider a pump that pushes water up and then a pelton wheel for the release of pressure on the way down. It's not the most efficient but it's smart.
I am super excited. The graphene capacitors from UCLA (about 18 months ago) can now be scaled up. They hired some company to try to scale up their tech, but maybe this finding can help. The implications for this is that new technologies are going to arrive in your hands and homes. Enjoy.
Lacking the capacity to think outside of the mainstream function of waiting in line for a dollar that isn't there.
Man up and make a company. Public funding isn't the only funding. If your ideas are valuable, market them. Summon the JC Venter in you.
Also, I am an engineer of sorts (cell biology). I use Celsius and meters every day. My understanding of a variety of units of measure only helped to understand the original point the OP was making, which was to say "awkward unit system you use". If you can get over that hangup, you might actually be part of the real conversation.
Remember --- if you can't tie your shoes, you'll never make it to work today.
The topic is not units of measure. The topic is about the teaching of the scientific process. You're getting hung up on insignificant side topics that aren't going to contribute to the topic.
ICQ/Yahoo/GTalk/Skype/IRC - were all far better than MSN garbage. MSN was always a distraction IM system that gained popularity due to microsoft forcing people into MSN e-mail accounts and buying hotmail.
I'm glad to see it going away. One less thing for pidgin/trillian to have to work with (note: the MSN accounts on the multi-messengers are the *only* ones I recall ever not really transferring files correctly)
Are you aware of the power of molecular biology? Do you know that a B.S. in the field and a little experience is all that is required to begin orchestrating very nasty science? Please find a way to think deeper or know more when forming opinions.
I think that the free market should attempt to try to compete with what they call 'inefficient big government'. I think it would be awesome to see if government or business can manage better.
In context, the difference is meaningless and mentioning it is so far beside the point that it's obnoxious. And here we are... We are not designing a space shuttle right now...
What I mean is that, as is common on reddit, you could have easily deduced or understood the gist of the argument and moved forward -- but, as is on reddit, you're interested in having something to say, and so you get caught up on the minutia of the argument and go completely off track.
I find it obnoxious and decided to call you out for it. The act is almost as bad as focusing on grammar and spelling.
