Comment Railroads (Score 1) 281 281

I know the technology isn't exactly cutting edge, but I'm surprised I didn't see railroads being mentioned as a possibility. Here's a flickr album showing them being moved without a problem http://www.flickr.com/photos/10372533@N06/2468920475/ Run them on trains to as close to where they're going to go as possible, then air lift them to their final destinations, simple as that.

Comment Cant load it (Score 1) 122 122

I can't connect, it says "error establishing database connection", I'm gonna guess this is another instance of a server overloading thanks to the amount of people connecting from a link on slashdot. Maybe once there's a few more new stories posted, people will stop looking at this one for long enough for me to load the images.

Comment Polaroid Sunglasses? (Score 5, Insightful) 72 72

"...the researchers used 'techniques similar to how Polaroid sunglasses filter away reflected sunlight to reduce glare..." Funny, I didn't even know Polaroid made sunglasses, here I thought they only made photography stuff. I assume the writer meant Polarized sunglasses?

If you can't understand it, it is intuitively obvious.
