China Completes Its First Lunar Return Mission

ZorglubZ Re: Back to the future (109 comments)

And you think that #2, "star traveller", is a better word than #1, "space traveller"? Why?

China Completes Its First Lunar Return Mission

ZorglubZ Newsflash! (109 comments)

Finally, and China got in before India!
The government - if that is the word - of the middle Northern American country, colloquially known as the Americas [sic?], has decided to refrain from participating in any so-called "Moon race" because it "reminds them too much of the novel 'The Stand'", and any reference to 'The Trash-Can Man' does NOT refer to "the National Aero-Spatial Agent... - What do you mean that's not what it's.. Turn off that micr."

Statisticians Study Who Was Helped Most By Obamacare

ZorglubZ Re: how many small businesses has Obama killed? (739 comments)

_So anyone expecting any of the benefits of a free market aren't going to find it._
You mean, you have to pay a premium to call it _free_? That's the most popular one I've seen... besides lowering costs for manufacturers by lowering wages. That one's a favourite!

Most Planets In the Universe Are Homeless

ZorglubZ Re: Planetary System Without A Star? (219 comments)

Just thought of this:
Hot vents can melt (some) metals, which may eventually lead to the discovery of metallurgy, which may then lead to fireless blacksmiths with better (non-oxidized) iron...
Just a thought. Hope one of my favourite SF authors sees it and runs off with it.

Most Planets In the Universe Are Homeless

ZorglubZ Re: Classification (219 comments)

(1) A "planet" [1] is a celestial body that (a) is in orbit around the Sun, (b) has sufficient mass for its self-gravity to overcome rigid body forces so that it assumes a hydrostatic equilibrium (nearly round) shape, and (c) <b>has cleared the neighbourhood around its orbit.</b>
Does this mean that Neptune is not a planet, since Pluto, Charon et al are still bothering it!?

Google Overtakes Apple As the World's Most Valuable Brand

ZorglubZ Re:Brand Value? (84 comments)

Google is just Googol (10^100) for dyslexics, even though I see that someone's edited Wikipedia to claim it was intentional... To my knowledge, no-one claimed, on or about y2k, that it was anything but a misspelling.

Standards Group Adds Adaptive-Sync To DisplayPort

ZorglubZ Re:It's a great idea (82 comments)

I was under the impression that it used to be measured as B-W-B (or W-B-W), and only when quality of displays increased, they switched to measuring GTG (since it was the lower number).

The Feature Phone Is Dead: Long Live the 'Basic Smartphone'

ZorglubZ Re:WTF Is A "Feature Phone"? (243 comments)

I think I have a "Feature Phone"... it's an LG Optimus 3D, the 'feature' being 3D camera and 3D display (I don't use either feature; I might've used the 3D Camera if I had a proper 3D TV...).
