Shapeshifting: Proposal For a New Periodic Table of the Elements

securityfolk Re:Beehive not a table (87 comments)

From my hobbyist messings-around with PTOE, it seems that the Lanthanides and the Actinides are about unstable nuclei due to neutrino decay and the crazy electron configurations (Have you looked at those outer shells?? It's a mess!). If it were up to me, I would stop the table at Lead. Nothing really happens in 5f until after then anyways.

Ask Slashdot: How Can I Make a Computer Science Club Interesting?

securityfolk Old tried and true... (265 comments)

Programming competitions. Sounds boring, I know, but I've seen such events bring out some very creative, lore-worthy, er, um, "logic" to win.

Missouri Legislation Redefines Science, Pushes Intelligent Design

securityfolk Re:Who benefits from teaching Anti-Science (813 comments)

The Koch brothers also donate to PBS and Nova. Hard to tell if they really believe in it, or are just investing in both directions so people don't know what to think about them.

If you're going to make mankind into gods, then it's back to the old question of who created man? Evolution or Bearded Sky Father?

Shiny New Space Fence To Monitor Orbiting Junk

securityfolk Re:Deorbit (76 comments)

One problem with that - it's *cold* up there. The water would probably freeze the instant you launched it at something. Now, you could always put a heater up there to keep the water warm, but that results in more space junk.

Me, I think a giant space vacuum cleaner would do the job.. we just need to borrow one from the folk at Space Balls.

Now *that's* thinkin with yer dipstick!
