Scientists Slow the Speed of Light

Infiniti2000 Re:Physics 101? (138 comments)

This is not through a medium. Light travels slowly through water, for example, but returns to the speed of light after exiting the water. This is passing photons through a mask, and then those photons staying at the slower speed.

Coffee Naps Better For Alertness Than Coffee Or Naps Alone

Infiniti2000 Re:Employers don't want employees who LOOK lazy. (133 comments)

When my engineers are low on actual tasks, I encourage them to learn. Go read up on some new technology, play around with that game engine, read some technology magazines or books, etc. That increased knowledge is incredibly useful to the company in the long run, it makes for happier employees, and they are even more marketable. Sounds counterproductive, but I prefer more marketable employees because it means not only do I have a strong team, but now the company is far more appealing to other marketable employees when I have an opening.

Be careful, Darinbob, the troll is working! It's disguised as a red herring, too!

Limiting the Teaching of the Scientific Process In Ohio

Infiniti2000 Re:The US slides back to the caves (528 comments)

No, it's flamebait. It mentions no less than four additional points not relevant to this discussion simply in an attempt to troll Americans. Take out those four other points and I would agree it's a valid criticism, or perhaps include other points that ARE relevant/related.

TechCentral Scams Call Center Scammers

Infiniti2000 Not so sure it's harmless (251 comments)

It's not harmless stringing them along like that. What you're really doing is giving them invaluable experience and training in responding to people who might simply be on the cusp of getting taken.

The Daily Harassment of Women In the Game Industry

Infiniti2000 Re:Pft (962 comments)

Typo on the average male weight. It's 193. But, what really scares me is that I could get raped by a linebacker.

The Daily Harassment of Women In the Game Industry

Infiniti2000 Re:Pft (962 comments)

You should reword that so it's not in past tense. I don't know what rock you live under, but women are still constantly denigrated at work, politics, school, and elsewhere. The glass ceiling still exists and is real.

Wikipedia Blocks 'Disruptive' Edits From US Congress

Infiniti2000 Re:News source (165 comments)

Well, it's not like this is really news yet. Let's see if we can dig up what's really happening at Congress. Is a representative actively sanctioning this behavior? If so, then that's news.

White House Punts On Petition To Allow Tesla Direct Sales

Infiniti2000 Re:What? (382 comments)

It's pure opinion of what's a joke petition and what isn't. If you say the death star is a joke petition and there's no frivolous determination of such petitions, then either the administration can arbitrarily choose or perhaps just treat them all as jokes. I think the response to the Tesla petition is fine. The administration should do nothing on this, not because I don't care but looking at it from their perspective, it's not worth it. It's a hugely problematic, very inflammatory discussion to talk about taking away state rights in favor of federal rights. The white house should pick their battles on that and this is certainly not one of them. So, while Tesla may be less of a joke petition than the Death Star, it's still a joke petition.

Chemists Build First "Buckyball" Made of Boron

Infiniti2000 This is cool shit (39 comments)

This is some cool shit. The carbon buckyballs spurred development and interest in carbon nanotubes and some other nano-material stuff. I hope this provides some more funding and interest.

Star Cluster Ejected From Galaxy At 2,000,000 MPH

Infiniti2000 Re:Towards Us (133 comments)

It was a lot of zeroes so if I missed an order of magnitude, my apologies. I'm not gonna double check again, though, because I think mil or bil doesn't matter. :)

Star Cluster Ejected From Galaxy At 2,000,000 MPH

Infiniti2000 Towards Us (133 comments)

The Virgo Cluster galaxy, M87, has ejected an entire star cluster, throwing it toward us at more than two million miles per hour.

I can imagine people getting alarmed at this, but they shouldn't. If it's truly directly towards us (unlikely), and never veers off course (unlikely), it would still take about 18.3 million years to reach us.
