In Ohio, the stickers are printed on label printers, on a "secure" stock. Nothing special here - the driver licenses and state IDs are printed on off-the-shelf laminator printers, again using "secure" stock. I wouldn't be surprised if the "secure" stock were made in China and just offered for sale by some local company that has Ohio gov't contract. Printing of anything in China is really cheap, and access to high-tech printing technologies is rather easy.
I've just realized that they have a fucking unicorn in their coat of arms. Probably one of the very few governments in the world that does that
Given that most of the people I know on FB don't use their real names, I think FB is just being super-silly.
The cost of the human life is quite small compared to the value of the IP being disclosed here. Sad but true...
That's true, and that's why unfettered maneuverability in an orbit is a pipe dream at the moment. As you say, there'd not even be a "main" engine, the entire RCS would consist of big engine - little engine pairs.
When pigs fly. That's my take on it.
In the US, this is not a practical issue. You go to a store and get a measuring cup. I haven't really had a need to know exactly how many ml is in such a cup... It also doesn't matter that other "cup" definitions exist out there. When you cook, you go by the measuring cup you get from the store. When you are a manufacturer of such cups, you should know what you're doing. Easy.
US sticks of butter are graduated in tablespoons on their wrapper. There's two tablespoons to an ounce, and 8 oz to a cup. So if a recipe calls, for, say 1/4 cup of butter (2oz), you know it's 4 "notches" on the butter stick's graduation, or 4 Tbsp of butter.
Measuring by weight has one significant benefit: you have much less washing up to do. No measuring cups/spoons to wash. When I mix ingredients, the mixing bowl sits on a wiiboard repurposed to be a high-capacity kitchen scale that reads down to 0.1g and has accuracy down to 1g over 100kg. When I try out a recipe for the first time, I simply note the weight of each ingredient as measured by volume, and use the weights from that point onwards. BTW, the readout I prefer is in lbs/oz, not grams
I couldn't agree more. There are, basically, more important problems than that. All imperial measures are defined in terms of SI units anyway. Big deal.
Let's not forget that Centigrade and degrees Celsius are not the same thing. They are almost the same, but not quite.
Optics that work well with far infrared targets are much bulkier than radar optics. It's much, much easier to deal with centimeter waves than micrometer waves
Only some very awkward C++ would not eliminate this. I have lots and lots of C++ code where buffer overflows and dangling pointers are statically provable not to exist, and it's very obvious by inspection that it can't but be so. All it takes is proper libraries and proper approach. Yes, I see way too much C++ code written like it was Pascal-with-objects. Sigh.
Who said the 1/2" is rounded?
No, I do not. Sorry to disappoint. Whenever I do construction around the house, I do this so often it's second nature.
