Aspartame gives me severe, crippling migraines.
Are you using caffeine-free soda to test this? Just making sure; headaches are also a symptom of caffeine withdrawl.
Why did this get to be a post on slashdot?
You say that now, but when someone starts making kits to build trebuchets into the back of pick-up trucks...
(The more I think about this idea, the more ridiculously awesome it sounds.)
Surprisingly, considering all the crazy "experiments" we tried as kids, nobody ever got hurt. Though there were some pretty close calls.
inorite? When I think back on it, I'm utterly amazed to have survived childhood.
Chris Byars, CEO of Ion Productions, the company behind the XM42, told me: "It is legal where there are no laws or codes written against such a device."
Incoming legislation in 3... 2... 1...
Snort. Because the democrats who dominated congress up to now have done sooo well at eliminating graft & pork. Hell, we can barely remember what those are thanks to the wonderful dems taking care of all that is wrong in the world and sprinkling fairy dust in our morning cereal...
Find a new axe to grind, your old one is worn out.
Pot, meet kettle.
The difference here, of course, is that neither side refrains from indulging in fatty pork products, but only one of them is claiming government spending is bad while doing so.
Buy a single damn video card. [...] That's likely why he thinks it's retarded... it doesn't solve any problems that aren't better solved by other solutions.
I'm not seeing how a single video card will help solve the problem of teaching how to build a cluster out of multiple networked computers. Nor would it look nearly as cool, which is directly relevant to the purpose of (to quote TFA) "getting children interested in science and engineering". It sounds like what GCHQ came up with succeeds much better at achieving the goals in question.
But remember, the ball got rolling for this in 1934, long before it was obvious battleships were obsolete.
Yamamoto was saying this at the time, but no one was listening...
we can only see 50% of it's surface on any given night
So which nights can we see the other side? Oh, never.
Actually, on any night other than the one precisely a lunar month from the given night, you can see some of that other side (the 50% you can't see tonight). That's what libration does -- expose some of that other 50% that you can't see tonight. Not all of it, sure, but some. You can only see 50% on any given night, but you can see 59% over time. Thus, 18% of tonight's "other side" will be "this side" on some other night.
