Dutch Architect Plans 3D Printed Building
An architect is, admittedly, a jack of all trades, ace of none.
only because mad bong hits arent a trade.
Why Ultra-Efficient 4,000 mph Vacuum-Tube Trains Aren't Being Built
Unless you *find* the energy source, all you have is DREAMS. ... our energy base for the entire planet is decayed plant matter
Wait, where did all the nuclear reactors go?
They blew up after exactly 50 years.
Why People Don't Live Past 114
Actually, he traded immortality for the knowledge of good and evil. Essentially for a loss of innocence. Pretty crappy trade if you ask me.
Also, it is fairly certain that Adam and Eve were banging regularly already. (They were both naked, physically mature, and had all the functional bits as far as we know.)
So he traded immortality for the knowledge of kinky sex?
DHS Goes Ahead With 'Pre-Crime' Detection Project
That's the beauty of Common Law: Everybody is simultaneously guilty and not guilty of some crime, thanks to judicial precedence.

Appropriately enough, the language sounds like a cat expectorating a hairball.
Why Does the US Cling To Imperial Measurements?
What is even worse, is scientific shows like Mythbusters use BOTH systems. Usually they use metric, usually it's F but sometimes it's C. Weighs usually pounds, but they also have used (kilo)grammes. Distance is usually inches and feet, but when bouncing a baseball they were measuring the bounce in cm - while other parts of the same experiment were using inches and feet.
There is no consistency, and that alone can give rise to errors. It doesn't really matter whether one uses cm or inches, or C or F as long as it's consistent. Forget to write down the unit once, and it's guesswork that's left. Have a thermometer with both scales - oops which scale were we using again this time?
You write "(kilo)grammes," so it's possible you're watching it on UK television. The US and Europe (in countries that don't dub or lector) have two different voiceovers, and the European one translates all the US customary figures to metric. It's not as unnatural in the US broadcast.
It's still pretty jarring television; you're right about that.

Just to be clear, they are absolutely not implying it has melted through the containment, but, rather, the reactor pressure vessel.
NASA Worker Falls To His Death On Launch Pad
I have no doubt he died doing what he loved.
It's not the fall that kills you; it's the sudden deceleration.
Ariz. Team Seeks Fossil-Fuel Cost Parity, Using Solar Energy Concentrators
I pay about $0.10/kWh. (1000 W per Hour)
The figure in the OP is highly non-standard usage. In the US, only the kilowatt is a unit of energy.
Apple 1 Computer Sells For $210,700
This troll made a lot more sense 7 or 8 years ago when it wasn't much quicker and easier to install and maintain Linux than any other general use system.
Even if you factor out install time (since most people get their Windows and Mac systems preloaded), the time you spend maintaining your system very quickly tilts the balance back in favor of Linux.
Don't be that guy...
The Placebo Effect Not Just On Drugs
Oh for a mod point. I've come to look at the election process as voting for Coke or Pepsi when all I want is a glass of water. Transparent and no artificial additives.
People who like treated water and politics should not see them being made.

Denials Aside, Feds Storing Body Scan Images
I had my first millimeter wave radar scan at the Denver airport when traveling last weekend. I thought it was rather interesting, but wasn't impressed by their insistence that I had something in my pockets, until I turned them inside out to show they were empty.
Known bogus accusations are standard cop-tricks to get you to confess to something, throw you off guard or make you reveal something.
No, he just didn't understand the "or are you happy to see me" part.
