First Observational Test of the "Multiverse"

Steneub Double-slit Experiment (258 comments)

I tend to think the double-slit experiment is evidence of a multiverse. The other 'verses are collide and cause the interference pattern on the other side of the slit.

Why Has Blu-ray Failed To Catch Hold?

Steneub Sony (1162 comments)

And don't forget the royalties that Sony gets. If I ever get a Blu-ray, and that is rare for a plethora of other reasons given by other replies, it will be second-hand.

Solar Breakthrough Could Provide Power Without Solar Cells

Steneub Re:I've been reading about solar breakthroughs (223 comments)

Which is the only reason I'm against Nuclear Power. Boiling water is stone age comparatively - no matter how efficient.

Hypertext Creator: Structure of the Web 'Completely Wrong'

Steneub In Xanadu (357 comments)

In Xanadu did Kubla Khan
A stately pleasure-dome decree :
Where Alph, the sacred river, ran
Through caverns measureless to man
Down to a sunless sea.

New Houses Killing Wi-Fi

Steneub But you don't have any proof though, right? (358 comments)

"could... unpredictable... potentially"

Call me when there's an actual demonstrated problem. Maybe the new materials will act as an amplifier? The situation would be different from floorplan to floorplan and from one wifi antenna placement to the next. You can hem and haw all you want, but you don't know for sure until you field test.

Scientists Invent World's First Anti-Laser

Steneub Re:Replacement for electrical power xmission lines (241 comments)

Fiber maybe? You would have the same physical eyesore problem, but the EM radiation would be non-existent. Is that even a real issue though? This would be cool for small scale applications though, or very large things like beaming power from a solar collector in a Lagrange point to the moon.

Motorola Adopting 3 Laws of Robotics For Android?

Steneub Lest We Forget (178 comments)

Most people forget the three laws are always presented as flawed. Something always happens and runs amok. The three laws are a great starting point, but they are incomplete.

Should Dolphins Be Treated As Non-Human Persons?

Steneub Re:Why just dolphins? (785 comments)

[Do] you think tuna fishermen are going to stop using nets because they might catch something which has rights?

No, but I predict a not insignificant percentage would be deterred.

Should Dolphins Be Treated As Non-Human Persons?

Steneub Re:No. (785 comments)

Opposable thumbs are not a prerequisite for intelligence, just for object manipulation.

Should Dolphins Be Treated As Non-Human Persons?

Steneub Re:Non-human intelligences (785 comments)

I would mod you up if I had points to spend. Recall Koko, the signing gorilla? If she had asked for some sort of freedom (and she might have), that would be something worth investigating.

Do High Schools Know What 'Computer Science' Is?

Steneub Re:What does being a girl have to do with it? (564 comments)

Why does it seem that "gender equality" only a one way street?

The longstanding view that a man can do whatever he wants while a woman has to work twice as hard to be thought half as good.

Apple, Microsoft, Google Attacked For Evil Plugins

Steneub Re:Misread title (293 comments)

I was close, I read it as "Attacked For Evil Penguins." I thought maybe they were going after Linux and the community retaliated for painting the penguin in a bad light!
