Quickies Knows Quickies. Quickies is Quickies. 98

We'll start this off with Ant's submission -- a hilarious story about The Endor Holocaust which no doubt follows the destruction of the 2nd Death Star. After reading something so clear, confuse your mind confuse your mind (thanks to The Musician). Now that you are adequately confused, cardoso sent us a ridiculous flash app where you can control dancers. This will put you in the mood to enjoy the most retro homepage ever, sent in by mvw Got some money to burn? Check out the Spinal Tap Guitar which features among other things, chrome exhaust pipes and a tachometer that (of course) goes to 11. If you're not a musician, maybe you'd be interested in Randy Rathbun's link to personalized action figures: I could send in my mugshot and be immortalized in plastic, standing forever atop my monitors with Darth, Goku, and Trinity! Or maybe you wanna buy a Dalek? If you're on more of a budget, Jay Novak sent us a great t-shirt from copyleft considering all the layoffs around the net companies. With all of these great things to waste cash on, you might need some cash: geekguy sent in a funny list of ways to cash in on Doom without wasting time making a game (like for example, Doom breakfast serial! Free BFG inside!) Just get id to license ya! For you do-it-yourselfers, mr100percent submitted what might be the most impressive automotive MP3 player ever. The Pathintosh is a beautifully integrated Mac complete w/ steering wheel controls, and a custom bezel. And finally, the eycandy. First up is davco9200's link to Daily Astronomy Astropix which is actually pretty sweet: today is Mars Dunes. Second and last of all, the pr0n: Jeff K sent in Unix-Sex which features sysadmins getting it on w/ Sun Hardware. Thats why we don't let them work 3rd shift.

  • I especially like the graph that equates the Clintons with -- Socrates, Einstien, and Jesus.
  • The Endor Holocaust site is part of Star Wars Technical Commentaries, which does make an analysis of the size of the Death Star. There is plenty of evidence for the actual (defined as what's presented in ROTJ) diameter being no smaller than 800 km -- mainly a quote from an ILM guy and the fact that Endor is a habitable planet that's about 11.5 times larger than the Death Star.

    (The whole SWTC site is fun to read, BTW.)

  • You have the exact same couch that I do. Did you inherit yours from your parents, too?
  • Well, I'm sad to say that unixsex is completely Slashdotted! I am gravely disappointed, I was looking forward to those pasty-unix-boy money shots. Does anybody have a site mirror URL?

  • It has to be from Cowboy Bebop because one of Ed's (translated lines) is "Ed knows Ed because Ed is Ed" or something like that (coincidentally matching the title of the quickies post). It's on episode 9, when Ed first appears.
  • The Death Star II was not 500 miles wide, as they state at the start of the Endor Holocaust site

    If you surf around that website, which has been around a while, you'll find further bases for that claim: the size of the Executor when it crashes into DSII, for example.

    Regardless, there are several holes in the evidence, as far as I can tell.

    1) You don't have to provide direct escape velocity to any fragments, just divert 'em enough to use a gravitational slingshot. Not too close, though, or you'll pull off atmosphere.

    2) As far as I can tell, there's no real indication of just how large the Ewok population is. It could be small enough that they all could fit on the available transports.

    3) Star Wars tech might include some equivalent to the Star Trek Genesis device, a combination of tech that can make an uninhabitable planet inhabitable again in short order.

    3) The Alliance has already been seen to have shielding technology sufficient to survive a bombardment from a fleet of Imperial Battlecruisers. It's possible they may have had such a device following the fleet in hyperspace ready for just this purpose. (Although the Imperials were able to land somehow, so such a shield isn't impervious to matter.)

    Clearly this whole website is simply Imperial propoganda.

    I saw this a while ago, probably in the earlier Quickie people posted about, and I decided to reply to the guy. I took his (obviously highly scientific) diagram with Jesus, the Clintons, Socrates, and Einstein, and threw in Nomar Garciaparra, and "proved" that there really were five days in every "day." It was something really basic, since I just had to respond to the tripe he was spewing. The guy writes back (using my real name; kinda scary) and points me to more drivel he's written, mentioning also that he tried to speak at my university (Georgia Tech) but the "stupid uneducated anti-truth educators" refused to let him. He then writes back again, and asks me if I want to have a debate with him, since I was obviously interested in his wonderful theories. Crazy...

    P.S.: would this Quickie subject have anything to do with some random troll posting big hunks of the timecube home page a couple of days ago? The timing is just kinda weird.

  • The trouble with analyzing fiction is that it is all made up. You can just say anything you want.
    Death Star II was constructed from unknown materials. Specifically, the density of the materials was unknown.
    Asteroids such as caused the Cretaceous-Tertiary extinction on Earth are not simply hanging in orbit and then drop. They impact while moving at celestial speeds. Death Star II would have started it's descent at nearly zero velocity compared to an asteroid. Depending upon the materials used, inertial mass may have been low enough that the atmosphere would slow even multi-kilometer wide pieces to the point that secondary disasters such as global earthquakes and nuclear winter would not occur. Think what would happend if DSII were constructed of cardboard. Pieces would hit the air and then sort of float to the ground. Yeah, it would be a big mess, but not something that could destroy a world.

  • Does that timecube guy realize that there are 8 corners in a cube? Guess not.
  • Ok, what this dumbass is saying, in between rants about god and the education system (which undoubtedly kicked him out), is that he thinks each actual day is really four days. He wants one day each for midnight-dawn, dawn-noon, noon-dusk, and dusk-midnight. (Despite the fact that these are not all the same length of time.) He clearly isn't smart enough to realize that it would simply be another, much stupider way of saying the same thing. Oh well, at least I had fun laughing at his horrible site.

  • The Death Star II was not 500 miles wide, as they state at the start of the Endor Holocaust site - that's over 800km! According to the Essential Guide to Vechicles and Vessels, the original Death Star was "only" 120km wide. IIRC, DS 2 was 20 - 40km wider, which would make it 140-160km in diameter, which is only approx. 90-100 miles wide.

  • Is it just me, or is this man a complete and utter idiot? What the hell does 4 have to do with a cube? A cube has 8 corners, 6 sides, 12 lines. No 4. And I can see that he took his own advice and stayed away from evil education by his grammar and math skills, not to mention his thought process. There might just be a reason why no institution of any sort will debate this topic... because it is a non-topic. It isn't worth debating. Where as topics such as evolution or various religions can be debated until you're blue in the face, you can take one look at this, even if you're a self taught monk philosopher with no human contact. Look at his diagram of the Earth's equators. Oh no, we were taught by those evil educators that the earth only has one equator, when it really has THREE! Look, the proof! Three circles drawn to look like a sphere! And look at how they intersect! Look! Four intersections! Never mind those other two intersections, its the Four intersections we're interested in! Apparently nobody ever taught him what a "dimension" is either, or how many dimensions we are actually taught are (he'd be surprised to find out that our evil education system actually supports the four space/time dimensions). Alright, I think I should stop now.

  • The assumption that the DS II could not have been in a free orbit, but instead was supported by a field generated on the moon is unwarrented. If you were to assume the forest moon was tidally locked with Endor, the construction of the station could have taken place at the L2 point Endor/forest moon system.

    Such a configuration would have kept the DS-II in a free orbit, but still stationary relative to the shield generator, which could use ALL available power for shielding. Only minimal manuvering power would be needed to maintain postion at L2.

    Attempting to support the station from the moon has addition problems. First, the generators for any type of repulsion field would themselves bear the full weight of the DS-II and would themselves need to be supported in some way, lest they be shoved through the moons crust. Also they would be a tempting target for sabotage, allowing the destruction of the station, without requiring or risking the rebel fleet.
  • Hehe.. I sent this to the time cube guy to explain:

    i understand your cube theory!

    I have one question though:

    Since man in essence "created" day and night in terms of thinking as such (i.e. to bats and other 'nocturnal' creatures, our night IS day for them, for others, such as single cell micro-organisms, there IS no day or night), a "time cube" doesn't apply as nature's invention, only man's. Since all organisms fall under nature's umbrella, wouldn't nature then have NO day or night, just one long span of time wherein the Earth simply rotates in and out of light and darkness linearly?

    I'd like to see how he'll answer that.
  • Why? It is one link out of many on a quickies story, clearly marked as porn, and very funny to those of us not behind corporate firewalls :)

  • The mass-extinction event at Endor is an inevitable physical consequence of the circumstances at the end of Return of the Jedi. As such, it indirectly enjoys canonical status, even though it was not clearly portrayed in the film. A small number of official but unfilmed pieces of STAR WARS fiction have offered brief glimpses of post-Imperial Endor, and at first glance some of these references seem difficult to reconcile with the necessary reality of the cataclysm. There are two possible responses to this problem, and a spectrum of compromises between them:

    Good good, this guy is serious.

    Hey, never mind all the problems of the world. Genocide? Ecological disaster? Risks of atomic war? Naw, none of that's important. What's really important is that (gasp) there are inconsistencies in Star Wars tie-in books! We must stamp them else, or else...

    Or else what?


  • Endor is a former moon of a gas giant; the RotJ novel clearly states that the planet around which the moon orbitied was lost. This fact is mentioned, btw, in the Dark Apprentice section of the Endor Holocaust website.

    Accordingly, there is no gas giant-Endor L2 point for the Death Star to be in. Perhaps one should read the entirety of a web page before trying to nitpick it?

    Claiming that the repulsion field would have to bear the full weight of the DS-II rests on assumptions of the physics of repulsors.

    Finally, the mere elimination of the repulsors would not be sufficient to destroy the Death Star II. The Death Star II is clearly said to be "fully operational", and since it cannot be fully operational unless it is able to move into target systems, the Death Star II before destruction obviously would be able to move away from Endor at hyperlight speeds, far faster than the gravity could pull it down.

    (So why didn't the Emperor order the Death Star to flee when the shields fell? He was preoccupied with a battle in his throne room, of course.)

  • Just in case anyone is out there who has the power to market such things: I would buy a CmdrTaco action figure, as I am sure a lot of other people would. I think I would also buy a Hemos and a JohnKatz.

    Hemos should look responsible.

    Of course, Katz would come with wearing a flak jacket.

    It would be really cool if they operated like that old Transformer set where you could link them all together into some sort of uber toy...I think the ultimate would be if they linked together to form some sort of a real working web-server running Slash or something.

    Look what the retro webpage guy is all about at Cambridge University:

    Dr. Daniel Gorden is the chief architect of the HAN project. Whether it is Warren ATM switches or nifty Media Blocks, he has built them all. Dr. Daniel Gorden was awarded the Ph.D. degree in 1999 by Cambridge University for his thesis on scheduling in optically-based ATM switching fabrics. He has worked as a Research Assistant on Fairisle project (an experimental ATM network) and on Warren project. His research interests include high-speed optical networks, operating systems and hardware design and verification. Although we managed to find a rare picture of Dr. Gorden, he is very camera shy; still you can easily spot him by his characteristic desk with innumerable wires, circuit boards and CRTs. Dr. Gorden now works on the AutoHan project and is responsible for its integration with Warren ATM network. files/index.html

  • Not that star wars was ever a paragon of realism, but Ive always wondered (especially after reading that page a while back) why Lucas sidestepped the issue of what happened to Endor after the death star fell on it.

    Of course I wondered even more how the ewoks beat the stormtroopers in the first place, but Im just such a cynic I guess.

    Whatever happened to the Ewok Hunters pages? Mostly written by the crowd that cheered when the ewok died in ROTJ. Probably the same crowd that cheered when we thought Jar-Jar wasnt going to be able to get his hand loose from the pod-racer engine in time. What a disappointment.
  • Pictures are located here []

    ...and I'm not sure we should trust this Kyle Sagan either.
  • Looks like you could, assuming that some n days in every "day" is correct, prove that n+1 days in every "day" also holds - which again will span an infinite number of days in every "day".

    Time is subjective, maybe?
  • It's pretty funny how he goes on and on about the number 4 when cubes have 6 sides!

  • rc cola came out with doom-endorsed bottles of kick. i think there were four different designs, but i only have one (with a cyberdemon on it).

    they also released a kick doom map with lots of new kick-inspired graphics.

    alas, poor kick, i drank you well.

  • Just for fun, I ran the "ALL YOUR BASE ARE BELONG TO US" through Babblefish []

    Here's what came back

    Your basis everything belongs to us, it is

    With entirely there is your foundation which belongs to our that

    With to our having your foundation completely that it belongs

    Clearly not as catchy!

    Just for fun, I ran the "ALL YOUR BASE ARE BELONG TO US" through Babblefish (sic)

    I translated the phrase to different languages and back to English, and got the following:

    • Italian: "all your base is belongs to we"
    • Portuguese: "all its base is in them belongs"
    • English -> German -> French -> English: "Your whole lower part being to belong us". Wow.

    All your beats are belong to us. []

  • Here's something else that didn't make it into the quickies:

    Bush vs. Yoda: Famous Quotes []

    Too funny!

    "Sweet creeping zombie Jesus!"
  • Great idea! And someone should sell a Doom breakfast cereal that I could eat while I watch the Doom breakfast serial.

    Don't be glib. It's clear that CmdrTaco is waxing nostalgic for the days before ethernet became common, when we'd all squeeze in a little deathmatch over the RS232 connection before work.

    All your MP3 are belong to us. []

  • Breakfast serial?

    Please, at least look at the box on the table in front of you -- it's "cereal". Did you or did you not graduate from college or university?
  • Go to Memepool []. Memepool had the endor story a while ago. You might call them the quickie specialists...

    Karma whoring??? For Great Justice.

  • I had my own pathintosh for a while, when I put my mac into tupperware and used it as an in-car MP3 player. It was pretty cool. Now I just use my tupperware boxes as servers, because they're small and cool.

    It was controlled via a laptop keypad, and I used an AppleScript I wrote that would play MP3s through SoundApp. I even had it where it would read the names of the songs out loud. All of this was done off of one CD-RW which was bootable. I never used a hard drive, because I feared the bumps would damage it.

    I recently made two servers out of tupperware cases. You know the blue ones with the little locking handles...

    Well anyway, I thought it was clever. They are rather small and fit a mid-tower sized motherboard, power supply, and hard drives.

    For me(college student) the average $35-50 per case is too expensive and takes up too much room in my dorm closet.

    $3 per case, and the whole server fits within 18" x 6" 12".

    Lots of people ask about my tupperware computers. But I just smile and respond, "I don't care what it looks like, it works doesn't it."

    ...and I'm not sure we should trust this Kyle Sagan either.
