I'm not into the medical field, but while in university doing engineering one of my group members put our model against a big sanding machine thereby pretty much evaporating it within 2 seconds. The only think I thought was oh shit those people get medical degrees, too. If I ever get sick I'm screwed.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
Thought about faraday, too. It looks cool, but it reminds me of another device that is small already and existed since the dawn of the cold war http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Explosively_pumped_flux_compression_generator
Darn, I knew I shouldn't trust wiki!

IF a certain marker is aligned with another distinct point, THEN a certain result is produced. IF that marker is aligned with a different point, it produces a different result(ELSIF). If it doesn't align with a marker at all you get your ELSE. The only limitation is that the inputs are restricted to those available on the mechanism.
There's no value added. It's like saying it's true because it's true and it's true because it's not false.
The computer should be able to change its program based on a previous result. That's what "if then else" is all about. The antikythera can not do that.
It is not what you can do, it is what people thing you can do. Make a lot of noise while working. Walk around a lot. Laugh really hard about other people's jokes. And you're job secure until you retire.
According to the Wolfram Alpha agreement all that is on the internet now belongs to Wolfram Research.

It may take a few days of patent search (not really fun to do, but ok), to find that your ideas have all been patented 100+ years ago already. And thus being in the public domain. Problem solved.
I don't care. As long as the TV commercials keep showing chimneys with colorful flowers coming out and lovely bunnies next to it and all to keep my conscious from nagging me.
Edison created something that could actually be used. That is including the electrical grid, switches, powermeters, bulb fitting and so on that was all needed to make the bulb glow. All this stuff didn't really exist back then. And a lot of new inventions that came out of that were indeed patented.
I think the patent system is put to good use in this case. If it were for Swan or some other introvert nerd, we would still be reading by candlelight.

Dear Wolfram Alpha:
I have a question and I am writing to you for help. My question is about bones. More specifically, about human bones. My question is what is the number of bones in the human body?
I look forward to your reply.
