Yes, people occasionally die of it, but for this or any jihadist to think Y. pestis is an effective way to wipe unbelievers from the earth is naive. The range of antibiotics that take care of it is pretty readily available, and the "plague" bacteria are not currently "medically resistant" to them. "When the microbe is injected in small mice, the symptoms of the disease should start to appear within 24 hours," is hardly rigorous clinical testing. You'd learn more about how to properly culture bacteria from any academic microbiology lab manual. "Use small grenades with the virus, and throw them in closed areas like metros, soccer stadiums, or entertainment centers
... Best to do it next to the air-conditioning. It also can be used during suicide operations." Means they're spitballing this stuff. This is no more instructive than watching a half season of "24".
Yup. Ain't no purple fringing on Velvia.
What's the old saying? There is no izvestia in Pravda, and no pravda in Izvestia.
In one of the more active areas. So I'm prepared for Mag 2-ish, which means a walk around the house to check for tumbled tchotchkes and tremor-induced feline fecal eruptions. I am however prepared for our natural disaster of choice, the hurricane. Generator, water casks, camp stove, decent pantry - as Garrison Keillor mentions, when I break open the long-forgotten can of water chestnuts, I'll need to turn-to...
John once fixed one of our balky home-built donated units with a disassembled 8" floppy. The disk itself and one side of the felt-lined carrier were perfect AZ bearing materials.
when the orbiter phones home, but I'm too tired at the moment to suss it out.
A plossl or super plossl (dont spend too much). Adding a barlow to the mix helps.
I think you mean John Dobson
said Ballmer "how much skull-peeling screaming can I do?"
he knows what to do with stuff that hitchhikes on spacecraft.
"Kids get in the car. We're goin' to Ikea!" Fixed that for ya.
... speeds without hilarity ensuing. They already have gravity HELPING them stick to the ground, with giant bright lines and concrete barriers and street lights and signs everywhere reminding them not to be jackasses. And still 30,000 people die this way in the US alone every year. What on earth makes anyone think millions of people will be better trying to do this in mid-air at twice the speed with no barriers, lines, lights or sticky-safe gravity? "But air travel is much safer" - sure, with two highly-trained professionals at the yoke, with miles of horizontal separation and thousands of feet of vertical separation with dozens of highly-trained professionals advising them on how to avoid the next perfectly natural thing that might drop them and their hundred+ passengers out of the sky. There are 600K +/- private pilots in the US. There are 200M +/- licensed drivers. I love bopping around in a Skylane as much as the next person, but do I want even 10x more private pilots / planes in the skies? Heck no!
wheat, soybeans, milk or eggs and eating same with your "bare hands and mouth". You think the line is drawn at fish?
as right now most doctors won't communicate by any means but an office visit - no fax, no email, no direct phone calls, everything else goes through an assistant. Puzzling seeing how personal medicine is.
sign up with a solar lease for my house, flatten my mains bill for 20 years and THEN go buy a volt / leaf / pip / tesla? Or is this subject to the dreaded fine print?
