Working Handgun Printed On a Sub-$2,000 3D Printer

HPHatecraft Re:here's a question (521 comments)

Forget that noise. Become a bowyer, learn archery; you're more assured to have raw material for ammunition and for the delivery system itself.

In fact, I'm late to my atlatl design class as we speak...

Over 100 Hours of Video Uploaded To YouTube Every Minute

HPHatecraft there's something for everyone (83 comments)

I have to exert some willpower now and again to not become annoyed at all of the garbage on YouTube (or the Internet for that matter).

The wisdom of George Carlin is immensely helpful in this regard: "Have you ever noticed that their stuff is **** and your **** is stuff?"

RIP, sir.

A Computer-based Smart Rifle With Incredible Accuracy, Now On Sale

HPHatecraft Re:pfftt... (551 comments)

right. Because that's how we've done for the past few 100,000 years. Screw digital computers! We should be using clay tablets and scratches in the dirt for computation. Antibiotics? For weak losers! Because all of us such He-Men (but more to the point, that's not how our ancient ancestors did it)... mmm. Not so much.

Gene Wolfe To Be Honored At Nebula Awards

HPHatecraft I heart Gene Wolfe (34 comments)

Dragon Knight books: astounding in their sadness and beauty. The ending was killer.

I always thought that the Book of the New Sun series was like Thundarr the Barbarian for adults -- magic and super science in the future (albeit minus the post apocalyptic Earth).

Soldier in the Mist was pretty good.

Free Live Free was pretty good.

The Sorcerer's House was good, but I consider it 'Wolfe-lite'.

I met Larry Niven and Howard Chaykin in Houston last year. I've met Neal Stephenson. Meeting Gene Wolfe and Neil Gaiman would complete my experience of having met favorite authors.

HPHatecraft Re:Shorter answer (121 comments)

hey

Love most of your comments, BTW. You have a good mind.

Having said that, I think this is more about mental break-though; self-awareness, teleological mechanisms.

English May Have Retained Words From an Ice Age Language

HPHatecraft Re:Words in common - Thai and English (323 comments)

Kind of no-brainer when you consider that Thai writing is borrowed from India (Pali, Sanskrit) by way of King Ramkamhaeng around the 13th century. Many Indian languages are considered Indo-European (yeah, that's the Indo), so they will have many words in common with... yes, European dialects.
