New Houses Killing Wi-Fi

kyuubiunl Maybe (358 comments)

PC Pro should stick to computers. House wraps are not new. They're not even new in the last twenty years. Would you like higher heating bills, or maybe having to put a repeater near a window if you want wifi outside. Though why you would even give a shit if you get wifi outside your house is beyond me.

True Radiaation Levels In US

kyuubiunl Re:non-story (3 comments)

Except that that's utter rubbish. Cessium distributes through the body evenly. The method of delivery has nothing to do with the exposure in this case. If you roll in it.....it distributes; if you breathe it....it distributes; if you drink it.....IT DISTRIBUTES! It stays in your body about 70 days. That sucks. All of japan is not dead from radiation sickness since 11 March 2011, I would say that so far we seem to be fairly safe. They're breathing a hell of a lot more of it than the guy in california, whose parents were subjected to years of open air weapons testing, and yes, DIDN'T DIE FROM RADIATION POISONING. Cows died several km from chernobyl because of thyroid dysfunction brought on by radiation poisoning, however this DETONATION and subsequent expulsion of massive amounts of material directly into the atmosphere didn't kill people the world over. Breathe.

True Radiaation Levels In US

kyuubiunl non-story (3 comments)

Not only is this shameless self promotion, and terrible spell-checking, but: if the US is really going to get .01 to .1 Bq/m^3, that's 0.270 to 2.702 picoCurie. The atomic bomb fallout left people in japan exposed to over 250 picoCurie. They're still here. I think I'll go outside.

NASA Picks Up Rainstorms On Titan

kyuubiunl Re:I'm pretty sure Titan is the home of... (110 comments)

Sort of. There is not appropriate oxygen OR temperature for there to be fires, but assuming there WAS. Titan's atmosphere is:
1.5x Atm -OR - 14.7psia * 1.5 = 22.05psia. Methane at this pressure is mostly liquid.
    1. Its melting point is then -279 deg(F).
    2. It would flash at -204.26 deg(F) with an ignition source.
    3. It would auto ignite (again, sufficient oxygen) at -271.02 deg(F).
However this is all very academic as the temperature on the surface averages -355.1 deg(F).

A Look At the World's Dwindling Food Supply

kyuubiunl Re:ENERGY ENERGY ENERGY ENERGY ENERGY (570 comments)

Oil won't just disappear one day, it will be a decline with a price inflation that keeps pace and will eventually jump. However oil's decline will also have an effect on population; mortality rates will rise with heating, electricity, and water shortages would cause a curbing of our population. Also there is a 200 year or better supply at even current yearly demand just under U.S. property. There is plenty of land to put to the plough, so long as we manage it correctly. Don't forget the Dust Bowl, China is having one now because they're flattening the land like we did before the 30's; instead of using land management (post mgmt Act) techniques. Balancing forces, yes?

A Look At the World's Dwindling Food Supply

kyuubiunl Re:ENERGY ENERGY ENERGY ENERGY ENERGY (570 comments)

Farming is hugely energy intensive, you think it's just the sun? Fertilisers, machinery use large amounts of oil and gas. Never mind the amount of water that is required.

Yes, NOW. The US was one of the largest agrarian cultures on the planet, and we didn't have oil until the 1850's. Spin again Colin.

NASA Picks Up Rainstorms On Titan

kyuubiunl Re:I'm pretty sure Titan is the home of... (110 comments)

It's called the FIRE TRIANGLE. Fuel, Oxygen, Heat. In addition to all three parts, the mixture has to be perfect for combustion to occur. If the temperature/pressure is not sufficient to reach the flash point of the hydrocarbon, it will not ignite. Ever. Also the flash point is different at different pressures.

Teen Cancels Party After 200,000 RSVP On Facebook

kyuubiunl Re:News For Nerds (191 comments)

This place has really gone the tubes.

Oh, you mean, This place has really gone down the tubes. Well to pay some homage to Mr. Carlin, 'It would seem to me, one country, one tube. But is every state all of a sudden have to have its own tube now? One tube is all you need. But a tube that big? Somebody would have seen it by now. "Hey Joey! Get a load of these *****' tubes!" '

Third Blast At Japan's Fukushima Nuclear Plant

kyuubiunl Re:Meltdown? (691 comments)

Worse than Three Mile Island? Just because it is billed as the "Worst Nuclear Plant release in US History" does not make it terrible. That statement literally says OUT OF WHAT HAS HAPPENED, this one trumped it. There were no significant releases other than noble gasses that would have decayed within seconds, the gas drillers are atomizing freaking radium226 into the air, and you think some irradiated NITROGEN is a problem? Try radioactive rain, irradiated garbage dumps that aren't designed to hold radioactive materials, and an irradiated water supply. Drink up. READ some
