Mysterious X-ray Signal Hints At Dark Matter

drall.kj Re:Doesn't jive for me (100 comments)

I get what you are saying but.... if it can decay into a photon isn't that the same as emitting a photon? The first line quoted above is "but does not emit or absorb light like “normal” matter." If it can generate a Photon (by decay or someother means) it can't be dark. I'm not that smart but Dark Mattter/Energy thing just stinks of take a stab in the dark (no pun intended). I think some where we have some constant of the universe calculated wrong, or we are estimating the mass of the galaxies wrong.

NYC Councilman (and Open Source Developer) Submits Bill Establishing Open Source Preference

drall.kj Re:This is bullshit. (105 comments)

Is proposing a bill to the council illegal (when there is a conflict of interest)? If it came to a vote and he didn't recuse himself I could understand the conflict. I don't know how the ethics laws are written.

drall.kj Re:Electric. (659 comments)

I don't think the problem is distance traveled per charge. It is the time from empty to full charge.

Skilled Manual Labor Critical To US STEM Dominance

drall.kj Re:Welders make 150k??? (367 comments)

Not to mention the steam/pipe fitters, welders, electricians I work with... are all on the bench most of the time. I don't know if it is just where I'm located (Mid Hudson Valley New York) but the guys I know are all hungry for work.... and there isn't that much work.

drall.kj Tron (127 comments)

Are these rejected uniform from the last Tron movie? All they need now is the pointless lights in the helmet to illumnate your face like BSG (both the 70s and the 00s).
