It's amazing to see something totally off the wall. The silver could be a conductivity thing? It's about 10% better than copper I think,
You think that you can get better than 10% cross-sectional area consistency when soldering something by hand? Without having to do an individual test on every component made, and re-work on
divided the county...
That's a work in progress.
I heard rumours that California is considering secession. Which would put Trump in a category previously occupied by one Abe Lincoln - president's who have started a civil war.
I still wear glasses. You can only get the laser operation once, so I'm waiting until I need it.
Which is why the idea of laser eye surgery is a non-starter. Almost everyone whose vision needs correction will find that it continues to drift - generally further away from "perfection" - through their life beyond the mid-30s. So, if you get your eyes lasered at 30, by the time you're 40 you'll be needing to wear glasses again. Repeat every 5 to 10 years.
Nobody liked having to wear glasses to watch a movie in the 1950s, and the same is true today.
Nobody who doesn't wear glasses normally. Not everyone over the age of 40 wants to wear TWO pairs of glasses. Or have a stinking headache. Or both.
And yet, whenever there is a blockbuster shown at the local multiplex, it is always the 3D version that sells out first.
How would you know that without either (1) reading and believing the lies from the marketing department (movie, or local theatre) or (2) going to the cinema sufficiently often to compile your own statistics. One is going to cost you your mind, and the other your wallet and your mind.
Wake me when I can see my chest, hands, legs and feet.
You left out "dick" (or pussy, depending on what sort of AC you are).
Were there any pr0n products in 3d? No. QED.
Leaving aside asexually reproducing organisms, every organism is a product of the mating between it's parents, and may have offspring. And for that particular organism, you can't even be sure that it can successfully reproduce if it mated with either or both of it's parents, or any of it's offspring. The only way to be sure is to carry out the test. Though for high value organisms (say, a zoo-living Black Rhino), it becomes plausible to carry out individual genetic sequencing to estimate the probability of success in an insemination. but even then, we know that we don't know enough to be certain about that for humans, and we know less for other groups of organisms.
Something like this.
What? Only if it's in a balloon. Otherwise it will mix with other air through convection, and it won't be a parcel of air any more.
Actually, it's a sufficiently good approximation to use. And you can see it for yourself any day when there are cumulus clouds in the sky - the border in the sky that you can see between the cooler cloud (where the water vapour has condensed out to make tiny droplets - which we see as the "white" of the cloud) and the (close to) transparent air-with-water-vapour, is the border of a "parcel" of air that has risen, as a parcel, after being heated over a source such as a forest, or bright field of flowering oilseed rape.
If you'd flown a glider, or been attentive when landing a conventional plane in turbulence, you'd have felt the impact of those different "parcels" of air. Yes, they can rip lumps off aircraft.
Go back to your spherical cows and let us be.
Stop being a fuckwit. You can be better than that. The AC provided good information about a complex phenomenon which most people don't understand at all well.
But if I ever owned a home with one, I'd put up an instruction sheet in 5 languages on the wall
And cue the person who only reads a 6th language to come along.
Luck, that's when preparation and opportunity meet. -- P.E. Trudeau
