If you were one of the intelligent ones you would know better!

You can get more intelligent just like you can lose it as well.

Jmc23 Re:time to die... (204 comments)

Worse yet, all of those round trips are done synchronously.

Don't blame the protocol for a problem with an implementation.

Samsung Debuts Thin Galaxy Tab S With Super AMOLED 2560X1600 Display

Jmc23 Re:73% better color reproduction than conventional (176 comments)

Of course it does.

Unfortunately, it seems your brain is to puny to understand math and the objective measures that are used to measure colour reproduction.

You must be from one of those countries with third world education systems.

That's a typical comment from someone talking out their ass.

New Evidence For Oceans of Water Deep In the Earth

Jmc23 Re:300 miles down... (190 comments)

The only thing i tend to underestimate is peoples thinking abilities and their lack of knowledge of vortexes, pressure gradients, and holistic designs.

Damn procedural thinkers, they should be teaching lisp in grade schools.

New Evidence For Oceans of Water Deep In the Earth

Jmc23 Re:Old bible scolars (190 comments)

I sure hope you're not a medical technician 'cause I know I wouldn't want mine to get so high.

What's funny is how many people will think you're being serious and you're a crazy bible thumper... except it's clear you haven't read the bible.

What would be really sad is if you were a bible thumper and didn't know anything about your 'holy' book.

Jmc23 Re:Seems to me (190 comments)

Hey! Don't forget about the positives of our sanitary toilets!

LIke all the money that goes to the medical industry because of all the problems caused by incorrect elimination posture!! And those knees don't magically lose their flexibility on their own! Physiotherapists need love too! Why even the pot and chiropractic industries get to cash in on the resulting back problems after the knees go!

How far away is the central valley from the ocean?

Just build specially designed pipelines with parabolic reflectors under them to separate out the salt.

Why's everybody got to think harder not smarter.

A Scientist Is Growing Asparagus In Meteorites To Prepare Us For Space Farming

Jmc23 Re:Dry rocks 'r us (59 comments)

Good thing we know which plants are good at chelating which metals. Permaculture at its best is when you have certain plants cleaning the soil, certain plants amending the soil, and others taking up the stuff and producing food.

Of course, logic in agriculture never cuts it in the US.

Jmc23 Re:Small Question (59 comments)

Billy stop being silly and please don't spread disinformation.

Plants never grow 'up', they grow towards the light. The only thing people THOUGHT would be a problem is root formation, but it turns out that doesn't depend on gravity either.

The easy solution, as opposed to your high embodied energy tech, is to surround your growing space with water, you need to store it anyways. Takes care of the radiation and allows light through.

Jmc23 Not short term enough (59 comments)

Sure making some seed bombs and throwing them at planets might work, but it will take a long time.

Realistically, Mars or the moon is where we'd be going first. An aquaponics setup would make the most logical sense for a starter colony to provide fish, oxygen and fuel(algae), radiation protection, recycling of urine, etc... With composting of human fecal matter through concentrated solar to produce biochar and hot water. Then usage of dust, pebbles, rocks, from digging out habitats, some for concrete, some for drainage, some for soil(biochar and compost) amendment.

All of which is doable right now and since life tends to always find a way, you'll get your specialized bacteria soon enough.

Biodegradable Fibers As Strong As Steel Made From Wood Cellulose

Jmc23 Trees? Still? (82 comments)

When are we going to switch to hemp? After all, if you really want to be green, something that grows faster, producers longer stronger fibers, easier to harvest, less polluting to process, etc, etc... and we already use it in construction, awesome paper, and clothing.

The US has certainly done a disservice to the world with it's Reefer madness.

Alienware Swaps SteamOS For Windows

Jmc23 Re:So they take premium hardware (173 comments)

You're an idiot who can't see past his own agenda.

'Premium' hardware is a constantly moving target. Every second it's not on the market it's depreciating.
