nuke the entire site from orbit - it's the only way to be sure
the vacuum is electrically neutral; the virtual charged particles
created by quantum fluctuations will be in oppositely charged
pairs (e.g. electron / positron). Won't this drive send these pairs
in opposite directions? So the whole thing will have zero thrust
this thought is the product of complete ignorance of how this
drive is actually supposed to work however
how do you get from
"in many cases"
this is the straw man fallacy, classic case
"Actually, there are three issues at play, two of which are mutually exclusive and the other two are related but not exactly the same."
I am intrigued by your mathematics
seriously, it's time
Libel/slander laws do not limit speech. They can only be applied after the fact. So you can be held responsible for what you say or write, but you cannot be restrained from saying it in the first place.
This doesn't make sense. Laws forbid you to utter slanderous statements. Other laws forbid you to utter "fire" in a theatre. In both cases, I can commit the offense. So either slander laws *do* limit speech or the "don't shout fire in a theatre" does *not* limit free speech. Which is it?
The point is that either you have reasonable basic liberties, or you don't. If you think an adult ought to be able to decide what they will or will not ingest, then how do you get from there to the authorities stepping into that decision using coercion? If you don't think an adult ought to be able to make those decisions for themselves, then I can't have a meaningful conversation with you.
I think you mean an adult can ingest anything he wants so long as it does not harm
others (suppose I ingest substance A and B which together form a powerful explosive,
right beside YOU. Do I have the right to ingest A and B. I think not).
Now, we should have a *meaningful* discussion of whether **some** drugs are such
that there consumption harms others to a sufficient degree to warrant prohibiting their
I think it is completely obvious that marijuana poses no such risk; not so sure
about crack cocaine (and, from another angle, potential cognitive enhancers,
steroids for athletes etc.)
system requirements for inkling
Windows 7, Vista or XP (SP3, 32 or 64 bit versions),
Mac OS 10.5+ (and Intel Processor)
I didn't spend very long looking either
"Did the primary buffer panel just fall off my gorram ship for no apparent reason?!"
" IPS display" - you can make up fantasy machines that compete
with mac air, but the x1 carbon does NOT have IPS display (as
the thinkpad forums abundantly demonstrate)
You point is intriguing. How many "hole years" are in a century?
mod up - important information
there are two papers: the Van-Gheem et.al. paper you cite and then there is the
one the slashdot article is about, which is:
Use of laptop computers connected to internet through Wi-Fi decreases human sperm motility and increases sperm DNA fragmentation. by Avendaño C, Mata A, Sanchez Sarmiento CA, Doncel GF.
The authors are the Argentineans which the linked article mentions.
It's (to be) published in Fertility and Sterility.
So I basically don't know what you're going on about
I think this must be the most obtuse
comment I've ever seen on slashdot
(which is saying a lot).
so you really think this 900 km tunnel
exists, do you?
