Comment Re:How do you get slow neutrons? (Score 2) 188

In nulcear engineering they are also called "thermal" neutrons because they have about the same kinetic energy as the surrounding material (thermal energy). Basically just neutrons that move too slow to easily pass out of the material they are formed in without reacting. They are the same neutrons that a fission chain reaction depends on in a reactor.

Here's an idea. If enough of us bought a single share of MSFT, then file a shareholder lawsuit arguing that this will kill the company long term, it would at least cause a big PR problem for them. Most people never hear the details of this stuff because it only gets covered in the tech news, but a lawsuit like this would make the mainstream news. It might even cause enough of a headache for MSFT to get them to back off on some of it.

Submission + - Democrat Operatives Caused Violence at Trump Rallies, Framed Sanders Supporters ( 16

Xenographic writes: A new video has come out detailing how Democratic operatives created violence at Trump rallies. You may remember that they then framed Sanders supporters for those protests.

Furthermore, you look at the FEC records of disbursements to her and see that she was paid by Finally, this again can be corroborated with the Wikileaks dump, specifically this email.

I am from the Netherlands, where most of the casualties are from: can we PLEASE stop our uninformed finger pointing until at least some evidence turns up?

None of us know what happened.

Russia or the separatists in Eastern Ukraine might have done this -- although no-one is sure what they would stand to gain from it. Ukraine's own military might have done it (they've done it before and denied it vehemently until it was proven beyond a shadow of a doubt).

When did they do this before? If they had, we would have definitely heard about it because YOUR dictator Putin would never shut up about it if it did. Fuck off, Russian troll!

Asgard wasn't an afterlife, it was a different "realm", like Midgard (Earth), Miflheim, Jotunheim and the others. If they wanted some badass female warriors, they could have just used the Valkyries! If they really needed some genderbending, there's plenty of that from Loki. This is just silly.
