There's plenty of evidence to suggest that the long term effects of living at 1G is that you die too.
You have obviously never seen my cooking. Believe me, it can happen. I have been known to burn water. Actually the water evaporated off, leaving whatever minerals were left - it still made a hell of a mess of the pot though.
Never try to code while you are cooking.
Ironically, I am pretty sure that's how Darth sounded before James Earl Jones did the voice-over
Linuxc has been on my home desktop for 15 years - my mum's desktop for 12 years, and my and my colleaguess work desktops for 3 years.
Seems to be here already for some of us.
I think the lack of diamond coated frying pans is more because diamonds actually aren't forever, and the first time you burned your pan, your expensive nano diamond coating would sublime off into carbon dioxide.
King Cnut famously demonstrated that no matter how powerful, rulers have no power over the the oceans and the tide.
Sooner or later, legislators in Florida, lacking his wisdom, are destined to learn that lesson the hard way,
I like stabbing myself in the eye with needles all weekend too.
I'd like to see a robot play fruit ninja for real. Sure, it'd be a little scary having a robot waving a razor sharp katana around, in your kitchen, but think of the time you could save making fruit salad!
I would much rather wars were fought the traditional way practiced by kings of old - with the leader riding out in front and troops rallying around behind.
Supermarket and shopping mall car parks are the perfect place for charging. Around here, it gets pretty bloody hot and sunny during the day, and getting back into your car after doing the shopping is a less than pleasant experience.
Supermarkets are already getting into the fuel business here with shopper docket discounts on petrol, so it would be a logical extension for them to shade car parks with solar panels that charged your car while you were shopping. It would give them an instant competitive advantage over rivals, or alternatively could create a new revenue stream, all while allowing them to rightly claim they were helping "save the planet"
I have replaced all my halogen down lights , 50w each, with LED lights that use only 5w, and actually provide better light.
I typically have 15 on, 4 hours a day.
As a proportion of my overall power usage, my lighting has dropped from about 15% to 1.5%
The LED bulbs will last longer (10,000 hours) than halogens, and pay themselves off in terms of saved electricity, in 2 years.
Electricity is $0.26
it will take 777 hours for it to save it's own purchase cost in electricity, or approximately 194 days of typical 4 hours a day use.
Definitely worth while both economically and environmentally.
Honestly, reading the synopsis of the plot of 20,000 Leagues, it seems he contributed more to Star Trek than he did to reality.
I don't remember Captain Nemo ever losing his shirt and making out with every mermaid, daugters of Neptune or any other female denizens of the deep that get in range of his tentacles... I guess they got Kirk's predilections from elsewhere.
There are plenty of smokers who don't die of cancer, so that must also be safe, right?
A week later the app went "Free" and by free I meant, all the features I paid for were now free to everyone
Look at it this way - it's not like buying stocks or something where you only buy it as an investment to sell later.
At the time you purchased it, the software offered you enough utiity to be worth buying.it was worth what you paid to get it - and as an added bonus, your purchasing it helped feed the developers and enable them to be able to afford to release it for free for the betterment of mankind - so by proxy, your payment has also helped benefit mankind. You should get a warm fuzzy feeling about that instead of feeling bitter!
Argh - never post before your first coffee.
I meant to say
"How about play a sport that doesn't require heavy physical contact?" of course.
