I'm curious what the measure of cell phone radiation exposure is in bananas?
Many foods are naturally radioactive, and bananas are particularly so, due to the radioactive potassium-40 they contain. The banana equivalent dose is the radiation exposure received by eating a single banana. Radiation leaks from nuclear plants are often measured in extraordinarily small units (the picocurie, a millionth of a millionth of a curie, is typical). By comparing the exposure from these events to a banana equivalent dose, a more realistic assessment of the actual risk can sometimes be obtained.
The average radiologic profile of bananas is 3520 picocuries per kg, or roughly 520 picocuries per 150g banana. The equivalent dose for 365 bananas (one per day for a year) is 3.6 millirems.
This is absolutely correct. In the US there are very few things you are required to tell the police and if you are a suspect of a crime it is in your best interest not to get chatty with them. You can be perfectly innocent and say things that you think are safe to say but they can still use those things against you to make you appear guilty enough to convict. You have 5th amendment rights for a reason.
It may annoy the officer but he knows the less you give him to work with, the harder his job of arresting an innocent person is going to be. No matter how wrong he is, don't argue with him and don't resist. State that you don't consent to searches and that you wish to reserve your right to remain silent. If he does place you under arrest ask for an attorney and don't answer any questions.
We need one lane for transit/commerce/utility, one lane for personal motorized transport, one for muscle powered, and one for pedestrians.
I agree that we need actual lanes for cyclists. Currently the roads are designed for cars and the sidewalks for pedestrians. This leaves the cyclists in a tough spot because no matter where they ride, they're a hazard to the lane they're trying to share. They take up too much space and move too fast for sidewalks, putting pedestrians in danger. They're too hard to see and move too slow for car lanes, causing traffic accidents.
I would love to have a safe place for cyclists to ride and I'm happy to blame urban planners, but in the meantime I'm not going to pretend that the cyclists that are trying to use the road that's not designed for them now, and get their own safe lane later, aren't the problem.
Why is the parent being modded down? The GP is an ignorant troll and this is an informed response.
Why does nudity offend you? Have you thought about it? I understand Christians are told to find nudity offensive, but is that your only reason?
I find it ridiculous that people are offended by nudity. That seams about as natural as being offending by looking a tree or mountain that isn't wearing any clothes.
I understand the harm in violence but also don't believe it should be censored. Why let people pretend violence doesn't exist? If it offends them maybe they'll be motivated to lead less violent lives. Maybe they'll be less likely to join a military after highschool that only invades other countries and murders people in the name of "security".
All modern advertising seams manipulative. We can teach our children to be critical thinkers and not fall victim to advertising. Hiding it from them until their older may only make things worse.
If "mindless" means lack of critical though, you can also call it "faith". I would include Christian traditions under the label of mindless culture.
How much mindless culture could be the result of sheltered people who are subject to so much censorship and propaganda?
Another reason to use WPA isn't to keep them out of your network, but to protect your privacy. WEP keys are easy to crack and you can decrypt any packet with the same key, you don't need to sniff the entire session. WPA keys are much harder to crack and (afaik) you need to sniff from the beginning of the session to decrypt any part of it.
Using WEP or no encryption at all lets your neighbors and anyone in the area (or far away with the right antenna) watch your traffic. SSL will only help you so much since they can also potentially MITM any of your connections with ARP poisoning.
That's unfortunate. So you don't even have to use BT, if a tracker happens to generate your IP as one of the fakes you might still get sued. At what point do they believe you when you say you're innocent? before or after the search warrant is served?
