NASA Confirms Discovery of Organism With Phosphorus-Free DNA

Sebilrazen Re:News flash: NASA discoveres there's life on ear (380 comments)

I'm super jealous, honestly. I'd love to sit around watching them debate this stuff over beers with them using pretzel sticks, peanuts, popcorn, etc. to create models to argue their points in real time. As long as the bureaucrat wasn't around to speed things along.

Truth be told, female scientists get me hot.

Microsoft Applies For Page-Turn Animation Patent

Sebilrazen Re:Hurry up and someone patent.... (293 comments)

To be fair, the page-curl gesture was first seen in the third-party iPhone e-reader app "Classics".

Myst, assuming you play it on a touch screen, as prior art? (1:20 to 1:30ish)

Thumbprints Used To Check Books Out of School Library

Sebilrazen Re:Not sensitive (355 comments)

Let me get this straight, you're using the frequency of an evolutionary based behavior (pack dominance) that requires no intelligence as an indicator for the frequency of something that requires a fair amount of intelligence and does nothing for the aggressor?

How Bad Is the Gulf Coast Oil Spill?

Sebilrazen Re:Volcano (913 comments)
