findoutmoretoday Re:critical development age!? (584 comments)

Blame America For Everything You Hate About "Internet Culture"

findoutmoretoday Re:The French are the world's Standards Board (376 comments)

The French were sitting around the fountain yelling insults and obscenities in French at those walking by.

These were Belgians faking they were French with Parisian accent and all. It's always fun to do that.

findoutmoretoday Space shutle all over (236 comments)

By 2020 It will be even older and certainly technically dated, it's main function will be to pump money to the same hands for a few more years. So let it die and start with something new.

No, You Can't Seize Country TLDs, US Court Rules

findoutmoretoday Re:damn (120 comments)

The US is the main sponsor of Mexican drug cartels and those cartels are terrorizing. But in this case it is not the state, although ... they could decide to take hair samples and jail every 'sponsor'-citizen.

David Cameron Says Brits Should Be Taught Imperial Measures

findoutmoretoday Re:FP? (942 comments)

Don't worry 2x4s are just pieces of lumber that fit into a 2" by 4" hole, in metric that could be 48mm by 92mm or maybe even less. And a guy that's 6' 2" tall is probably up to 1" shorter than that. Metric is just a large amount of hard numbers.

New Research Casts Doubt On the "10,000 Hour Rule" of Expertise

findoutmoretoday Re:In my experience most mastery is at the start (192 comments)

It's odd that László Polgár tried and succeeded creating young chess masters to demonstrate the contrary "Geniuses are made, not born". And as it concerns three sisters, the twin genetics theory doesn't hold, neither the statistical gender advantage.

findoutmoretoday Vitruvius (106 comments)

I read something he wrote where he followed the Vitruvius account of the Archimedes experiment. Spotting fallacious scientific preconceptions is apparently not his forte. So it's only about PR?

The only time I phoned 911 (used 112) was for a car already burning bumper to bumper on a German highway, and yes I was the first to call. Maybe people would have preferred to text.

"Magic Helmet" For F-35 Ready For Delivery

findoutmoretoday Re: Watch the F-35 get blown out of the skies (184 comments)

Engage 24 enemy airfighters with what? I read "two internal bays with two pylons each". You can add exterior weapons but then the plane is even less stealth. Agile is not a problem as it is never a good flyer.

You never did but then you never read the tweets people post about you. All that yelling would probably make some people pretty certain you should be fired.

Too bad you needed words to make your point about math. Maybe English is even more science than math.
