Electric Bikes Get More Elegant Every Year (Video)
The main problem with e-bikes is they don't fit the bicycle category; they're really underpowered motorcycles. One of the first things I noticed in the clip was a brag about being able to go 20mph--most urban bike traffic will be going at half that speed, say 8-12 mph. (For example, one of the local biking groups shows that 18-20 mph is for top cyclist in a paceline.)
These really don't belong on multi-purpose trails or in bike lanes. The speed differential between them and normal bikes is just asking for accidents.
Ghostwriter Reveals the Secret Life of WikiLeaks Founder Julian Assange
It stands for the value of 'a' raised to the power of e (roughly 2.71828). Now, while Euler's number is damn sexy, I'm not sure why he kept putting his hands on it...
No. of vehicle license types I hold:
In some locations, you only need a license to drive powered vehicles on public roads, not on private property (the most common example would be farms). So you could go your entire life driving every day without needing permission, provided you never left private property.
Volvo Plans To Have Self-Driving Cars In Swedish City of Gothenburg By 2017
Well, it's not the capital NOW...Volvo has got until 2017 to convince the Swedish government to relocate.
How Much of ISON Survived Its Closest Approach To the Sun?
Well, in Japanese mythology, the sun deity is most definitely a gal.
Soldiers Looking For Hookups On Craigslist Are Being Warned of a Military Sting
The only flaw with this theory is the term predates the war. It's been recorded in use in 1845 in North Carolina.
Generic TLDs Threaten Name Collisions and Information Leakage
I would suspect NRL, since they're the ones who sponsored the TOR project in the first place.
How Ubiquitous Autonomous Cars Could Affect Society (Video)
I'd bet the incidence of human drivers cutting off robotic vehicles increases dramatically.
Followed quickly by a dramatic increase of drivers discovering that performing an act of reckless driving in front of cameras results in suspended licenses and hefty fines, not to mention civil suits from the trucking company for any damage caused.
Hacker Exposes Evidence of Widespread Grade Tampering In India
if you have a test that only scores 50 max and you scale it to 100 obviously you aren't going to have many odd numbers in the results.
The thing is, you'll have no odd numbers when you double the values. It's those odd numbers that only occur up in the 90s that stand out--if they are scaling like your theory, then the scorers are screwing with the upper values. If they aren't, they're screwing with the lower values to make those jagged peaks. (And there's still the issue of the missing "just below passing" scores.)
Leak Found In Fukushima Tank Holding Radioactive Water
Do you think Molasses is safe? Ever given a second of thought to the fear that your bottle of syrup might attack you?
But wait, a disaster COULD happen.
It's happened before.

Intercontinental Mind-Meld Unites Two Rats
North America and South America are different continents...
The boundaries that make up continents are to a degree arbitrary and depend upon the person making the statement. There's no real justification for Europe being a continent; Europe and a large part of Asia are on one tectonic plate, while the easternmost part of Asia is on the same plate as North America. And the Indian subcontinent is on yet another plate.
So, it's ultimately local custom that determines the number of continents. I've seen Europeans refer to the Americas as one continent. For example, the Olympic rings were at one time intended to represent five continents.
The Olympic flag ... has a white background, with five interlaced rings in the centre: blue, yellow, black, green and red ... This design is symbolic ; it represents the five inhabited continents of the world, united by Olympism, while the six colors are those that appear on all the national flags of the world at the present time.
-- Pierre De Coubertin (1931)
(The quote's copied from Wikipedia, so in five minutes it's entirely possible that De Coubertin would have said the flag represents the population of elephants tripling within six months.)
Iran Says It Sent Monkey Into Space and Back
Though I don't think you can quite orbit at 120km, there must be terrible atmospheric drag there.
The lowest circular non-powered orbit is around 150km.
...that breaks an arbitrary 100km threshold.
There's nothing arbitrary about the
Karman line, aside from picking a static round number close to the value. It's the place where a plane would need to be at orbital speed to get lift from the wings.
I can juggle ...
One of the problems with the discussion about the number of objects is the definition of what can be considered as "juggling". The International Juggler's Association, when they split apart from the International Brotherhood of Magicians, took care to not define exactly what kind of object manipulation would qualify. Now, if the experts in the field were willing to accept rope spinning, diablos, and hat manipulation under the juggling umbrella, it seems a mistake to not allow a "one object" poll choice.
DARPA Begins Work On 100Gbps Wireless Tech With 120-mile Range
Well, if Slashdot ever bothered linking to the original article, you'd see:
The goal is to create a 100 Gb/s data link that achieves a range greater than 200 kilometers between airborne assets and a range greater than 100 kilometers between an airborne asset (at 60,000 feet) and the ground.
I go to trade shows (of any kind) ...
This is not something you will ever be able to find out firsthand from any amount of electronic conferencing.
Yet, I just found this out from your firsthand account on an electronic conference...
Scientists Develop Chocolate That Won't Melt At High Temperatures
There are two possible interpretations here: the previous post was wrong, or the US has a definition of "chocolate" that specifies a much lower level of cocoa solids than the rest of the civilized world and thus should not be considered chocolate by anyone with working taste buds.
How Do You Participate In Black Friday?
Christmas shopping is performed on Dec. 24th, after dinner.
Brazil and Peru Dispute .Amazon TLD
Does that matter if they currently have plans or not? Now is the time to fight to establish possession, because if the company gets hold of .amazon, it will be next to impossible to get it back.
'Ban Killer Bots,' Urges Human Rights Watch
A glitch on the program makes the drone think that anyone carrying a cylinder 2ft long and 1 inch diameter a combatant? (Looks like a gun barrel!) Well, all those poor fuckers carrying brooms and sweeping their patios had it coming! Nevermind those uppity pool boys with dipnets! Can't make an omlette without breaking some eggs, right?!
So you're for robots and drones, right? Because right now the glitch in programming is when human soldiers in a combat area see someone with something that might be a weapon, they tend to shoot them. Why? Because the ones going "Is that a weapon or is it a broom" don't tend to last when it is actually is a weapon. A drone operator, on the other hand, can take the time to evaluate the situation since they aren't in harm's way.
