CaVp Re:Jungles, but I'm too scared (246 comments)

Oh please.... this is a stupid "urban legend" perpetuated by some dumbass journalists (the level you would find in 4chan at best). This comes from the time Peru was a Spanish colony, when the people supposedly involved in this were called "pishtacos" (there was a crminal gang clled like this in the 60s-70s, but I'm not that old to remember exactly)... So please, at least read a little more instead of being spreading FUD of the worst class (like alligators in New York sewers)...

Disclaimer: I'm peruvian, you insensitive clod... ;)

Curiosity's Latest High-Res Photo Looks Like Earth

CaVp Re:Both versions (215 comments)

I sent this as a story two days ago, didn't make it to the front page: a 360-deg. panorama view of Mars, composed by a guy named Andrew Bodrov... it seems these images are not white-balanced or retouched... enjoy!

CaVp Re:Where does it Evaporate To? (144 comments)

Actually, HDs are not air-sealed... they have small holes for filtered ventilation (look after those stickers sayin "Do not cover"...)

Coming Next: TSA Taser Bracelets?

CaVp CaVp writes  |  more than 2 years ago

CaVp (746780) writes "From the article: "The TSA’s security policies are getting more and more bizarre, from testing people’s drinks for explosives to ordering all travelers to freeze on command, but could a frightening policy that was seriously explored by the DHS be resurrected – forcing people to wear taser bracelets that would deliver an electric shock if they got out of line?" Fox coverage here.

Imagine a nutjob with a radio transmitter tuned to the bracelet radio frequency... instant bacon!..."

Take a HD peek at Mars: 360 panorama view from Curiosity pics

CaVp CaVp writes  |  more than 2 years ago

CaVp (746780) writes "While we wait for a picnic tour to Mars, we could get by with an awesome panorama view of the crater where the Curiosity rover rests for now (courtesy of LA Times):

A 360-degree panorama of Mars has hit the Web, giving you a look from the surface of our neighboring red planet. The panorama, which you can check out here, gives an incredibly detailed look at Mars. Andrew Bodrov, a user on the site, put together the panorama, but he doesn't give too many details about it in the post other than that the photos came from Curiosity's second day on Mars.

I thought the best quality pictures were due much later than this.. the view is amazing!"


Printing your own restricted gun parts: legal?

CaVp (746780) writes "For all of you gun and 3D printing lovers, Thingiverse (3d digital design projects heaven) has a project for printing the lower receiver for the AR-15, the only part of this gun that requires some paperwork to buy; according to the article:

The Lower Receiver is the frame that holds together all the other pieces of the firearm. In the States, all the other pieces can be purchased without a permit — over the counter or through the post. The Lower Receiver is the only part which requires a background check or any other kind of paperwork before purchase."
