3.5 stripes Hard to place? (45 comments)

That honestly doesn't sound much different from shrimp, or their relatives.. especially the mantis shrimp. Compound eyes, paddles, and strong front arms.

Hyperbole much?

How To Make Espresso In Space

3.5 stripes Re:Short black with one (192 comments)

Bialetti makes Mokas, which is not espresso (good for making coffee for tiramisu). Espresso is basically translated as express, as the biggest thing about an espresso, is it's about 30 secs from grinding to drinking.

3.5 stripes Re:It's gonna be funny when our cellphone Internet (78 comments)

I somehow doubt that wireless will be faster, but for the cost of scale infrastructure, antennas and base stations aren't cheap, but the will probably serve many more customers (each with a monthly subscription) than a DSLAM or Coax (or fiber) deployment, so the costs probably will have a better ROI.

Four Weeks Without Soap Or Shampoo

3.5 stripes Re:Bathe for health (250 comments)

The idea here is probiotics, good bacteria outbreed and exclude the pathogens... The article even states that the byproducts of the ammonia processing by these bacteria produced nirites and nitric acid which inhibited staph growth, they even noticed reduced healing times for mice.
