Favorite "Go!" Phrase?

F34nor Re:Get ready to *dance*, *silly cows*! (701 comments)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S... On-a-mother-fucking-oscilloscope! Now that is some programming prowess .

Listen oh ye of quick fingers and slow mind, it is better to have said something wrong quick to how you say "make yourself feel superior" or to have just googled it?
P.S. My superiority comes from 1st generation hybrid monkey and alien DNA.

DARPA Successfully Demonstrates Self-Guiding Bullets

F34nor Re:Alternate use for this technology (188 comments)

Ad hominem synecdoche; fun to say but not very convincing.

We current are using 2/3 of the capacity for air groups on the super carriers so that argument is less convincing. You still need the support ships period.

Dash speed is bullshit, out running a torpedo may be possible but only if it was fired a the stern and the carrier group had totally failed in its job. Find an example of when they have used it ever and I will mea culpa.

With 10 super carriers and 3.5 average currently operational with a 10 year refueling time you are not the least bit convincing. Even if the carrier were 1/2 the cost you could have 7 concurrently operational or even 2 carriers per current group.

You give no data and no examples so I just don't believe you.

DARPA Successfully Demonstrates Self-Guiding Bullets

F34nor Re:Alternate use for this technology (188 comments)

The point is not the de Havilland Mosquito itself as that is that is a prima facie ridiculous example. The real point is single expensive or many inexpensive. The proof that his was right is the drone is in service everyday in every hot spot and our pilots were refusing to fly our top of the line fighter until very recently. Complexity theory is a bitch. Putting all your eggs in one basket is a bad idea. Making your basket cost a measurable amount of GDP is insane. Making your basket nuclear but still needing another 10 support baskets that limit its speed and supply its eggs with yoke defeats the purpose of having it nuclear! What part of this is complicated? You cannot outpace your support ships. Is your only point to pick at the example or do you really disagree with the thesis? Defend limited quantity super expensive vs cheap and plentiful.

It would never work (and I never claimed it would) Spruce bud worm has been a bitch on the industry. Either way you win for the only informed sounding response. Also of note to the detractors my point wasn't the specific example but the idea. Is many decent devices better than one OMEGASUPERAWSOME device? Perfect is the enemy of the good. Also you all might not that the drone is the de facto air force now.

You are obviously not part of the military industrial complex! Fuck effective go expensive every time. For the price of one nuclear carrier we could have 50 diesel carrier groups with planes. I know professor that showed that for the price of 1 F14 you could equip a squadron of DeHavalin mosquitoes with Phoenix missiles. Stealth because they are made out of wood and 50 guided missiles will ace any fighter pilot in the sky.

'Godfather of Ecstasy,' Chemist Sasha Shulgin Dies Aged 88

F34nor Re:But LSD must be better (164 comments)

Ahh the voice of ignorance. I once hosted an Earth Dance where the promoter gave every one who came a hit or two of CP liquid LSD. I know what the differnce between good and bad is. The basis of a good trip classically requires set and setting, purity aside. All things that I am competent at controlling. What I am saying is that LSD was a mistake with a side effect, Shulgin created hundreds of substances tested them evaluated them and recommended them. Why use a stone hammer to do prostrate surgery when you have gamma ray knife? Look at the chemical structure of LSD vs DMT which one is more likely to be broken down cleanly in the synaptic gap when it the brain is done with it?

'Godfather of Ecstasy,' Chemist Sasha Shulgin Dies Aged 88

F34nor Re:It's just sad... (164 comments)

No the researcher was a fraud. The chemical provider sued him and said basically that their whole business model was based on not ever fucking up an order for any reason whatsoever.

As to meth being bad watch "Road Side Profits" https://www.youtube.com/watch?... Any drug Tim Leary says is bad is VERY FUCKING BAD.

F34nor Re:It's just sad... (164 comments)

As a fan of hallucinogens let me just say LSD is COMPLETE shit. Just because Freud was the first psychologist doesn't mean Freudians are going to help you with you mental issues. Just because LSD was the first hallucinogen doesn't mean you should take it. It is a rough large dirty molecule that make you see things but can make you VERY unhappy. I liken it to this video. Old shit may look good but it isn't always the best choice.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?...

If you want to get high their are many choices. Choose one that matches your goals. Choose one with limited side effects. Choose one with a duration that works for you.

As to traditions they are just a crutch. If you are thoughtful and have a goal in mind for your experience and don't have preexisting conditions you don't need religion to ease you into this stuff.

PIHKAL & TIHKAL

LSD is like a filthy hammer bashing your brain out sure you see stars but the next day is rough. Shulgin went to the point of creating psychoactives tailored to visual or auditory only. LSD was discovered by mistake, and opened up a new world of pharmacology. Shulgin understood the systems and created purposefully, there is a HUGE difference.

GE invents piezoelectric bellows for cooling components.

F34nor F34nor writes  |  about a year and a half ago

F34nor (321515) writes "Similar to heat pipes, peltiers, and sterling cycle engines this technology allows for cooling electronics. This device expands and contracts to respirate cool air in and hot air out of a bellows mounted to the electronics. Looks hot!"

What do you do with spent nuclear fuel?

F34nor F34nor writes  |  more than 2 years ago

F34nor writes "I first learned about ADS in Wired magazine a number of years ago and have been waiting patiently for news ever since. Accelerator-driven system also know as an 'energy amplifier' by Wikipedia is basically a way to speed up the half-life of nuclear waste while generating energy as a byproduct. Now it seems Belgian Nuclear Research Centre has put it to the test and gotten some interesting results. Don't think this means a nuclear golden age in the U.S. even if it works your neighbors will never allow the stuff to be trucked to the machine from your local plant."

Excel 2007 thinks FFFF = 100000 not 65,535

F34nor F34nor writes  |  more than 6 years ago

F34nor (321515) writes "It seems that Excel 2007 has thrown a rod and can no longer correctly multiply when the answer is the last 16 bit integer. I just tired it out and sure enough "=850*77.1" displays the result 100000. App scout as 850*77.1 nice little article as well as pcmag."

F34nor writes "I for one was very impressed when Coleman introduced a Peltier Thermoelectric Device based cooler back in the 90's. I was deeply conflicted if I should make my beer frosty or tear the thing apart to make a CPU cooler. Now Coleman once again is making the jump from "kind of wacky" science project to tasty beverage in a way that makes me think someone at Coleman listens to just the right amount of Art Bell. The guts are made by a company called Global Cooling based out of the Netherlands. Todd Troutman covered it here, unfortunately the Costco link says no love yet and the manual says it pulls 48w not 24w."
