Fusion Reactor Concept Could Be Cheaper Than Coal

What does the headline mean "could be"? This concept is cheaper than a coal plant right now; it cost them almost nothing next to a real coal plant. Now constructing one ... that's a different story.

In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice. But, in practice, there is.

It seems like viruses and exploits are getting names like rock bands.

I went to VirusPalooza!!! The headliners were ShellSHOCK and Heartbleed. They were great. Also saw a bunch of others: Viruses from yesteryear like Wabbit and Creeper System, awesome viruses from the '80s CyberAIDS, Festering Hate Apple ProDOS, and Ghostball, modern stars like Stuxnet and CryptoLocker, and who could forget Y2K?!?

However, the engineer in me can't help but think of how far they can take the cyborg theme.

Are you kidding me? Imagine having one that you could just strap on for an hour, get on a treadmill, and then read a book or surf the net while your legs did their thing. I'd exercise everyday.

People such as moon landing hoaxers, 9/11 truthers etc. are so far gone that you could methodically tear down each and every one of their assertions, employing evidence, science, logic to beat it to a pulp and they'd still start right up with the first one again.

Sounds like a substitute for religion.

Is figure out why so many who are on SSRI's or had recently stopped taking them, become suicidal or go on shooting rampages, or both.

Seriously, what the fuck? What an idiotic, close minded, asshole of a comment...

Whoa, whoa, whoa! ...

Let's not go on a rampage here.


Sorry, I had to. For the record I agree with you.
