Who Needs NASA? Exoplanet Detected Using a DSLR

thephydes all credit is due.... (108 comments)

A very nice use of existing and well known technologies and some clever manufacturing of other parts. "Well done that man!" as my father would say. Of course the naysayers who have't done a fucking thing as nifty as this will be "blah blah blah......".

Drone Sightings Near Other Aircraft Up Dramatically

thephydes Re:These idiots are going to ruin it for everyone (132 comments)

what? are you suggesting most pilots can't tell the difference between a bird and a drone? Fucking get real...... these guys/gals have hundreds of hours of training which I have no doubt now includes looking out for the toys of fuckwits. Anyway, even if they do mistake a bird for a drone, I sure as hell as a passenger would want them to report it. Go and play with your drone - or your cock if you like that better.

UN Climate Change Panel: It's Happening, and It's Almost Entirely Man's Fault

thephydes Re:The Co-Founder Of The Weather Channel (695 comments)

He may be able to read and describe a weather map, or condense information from the weather bureau into digestible lumps, but that does not make him a climate scientist any more that me having a home weather station makes me a climate scientist. It makes us both weather tinkerers at best.

Using Naval Logbooks To Reconstruct Past Weather and Predict Future Climate

thephydes Re:No one cares (102 comments)

You obviously cannot read and comprehend what you read - perhaps you need to go back to grade school and get some lessons.. I didn't ask you to prove anything (although you have proved yourself to be an intellectual cripple). I asked you to provide compelling EVIDENCE that the earth is not warming. There is a load of EVIDENCE that it is if you can actually read more than comics. And posting as AC reinforces what a stupid prick you are.

Using Naval Logbooks To Reconstruct Past Weather and Predict Future Climate

thephydes Re:No one cares (102 comments)

wrong..... plenty of people give a shit, so unless you can provide compelling evidence that global warming is not happening - man made or otherwise - stop spreading your bullshit or get it published in a peer reviewed journal instead of here.

Thanks for demonstrating your superior intelligence and command of English. Please may I use your erudite comments in another forum? I'm sure they need wider exposure so that you get the exposure and accolades that you need.

Mobile Phone Use Soon To Be Allowed On European Flights

thephydes a question? (96 comments)

Will there be any reception for mobile phones on many flights? After all the planes will be WAY above any towers. Or does this just mean that people will use their phones for games as they do now and calls when they get close to airports? serious question believe it or not .....

Why Women Have No Time For Wikipedia

thephydes perhaps men and women are different? (579 comments)

As a teacher with 35 years under his belt, I posit that men and women are different. In my - admittedly limited and anecdotal, and restricted to younger that 18yrs - experience there is a different communication mindset with girls compared to boys (women compared to men?) . I constantly see girls in groups of 8 or so with often one queen bee, and lots of conversation, whereas boys are generally in smaller groups and are quite happy to insult each other, throw a punch and grunt. Facebook emulates what I see in the yard with girls, Wiki-whatever emulates what I see in the yard with boys. Shoot me down if you feel the need to do so.

Aussie Airlines To Allow Uninterrupted Mobile Use During Flights

thephydes as long as ... (51 comments)

the ignorant cunt next to me isn't allowed to inflict his/her loud spoken conversation on me while I'm trying to sleep/tune out/read, then that's OK with me. As soon as they allow voice calls, air travel is well and truly fucked - much like going to a coffee shop in suburbia.

Oso Disaster Had Its Roots In Earlier Landslides

thephydes a question.... (64 comments)

I don't live there, but looking at some of the photos, is deforestation potentially part of the problem? Honest question for which I expect to be flamed by some.... but there it is.

Australia Repeals Carbon Tax

thephydes Re:Why so worked up? (291 comments)

"Do you know how much carbon you guys produce next to China or India? A laughably small amount." But you don't have the full picture. A lot of the coal they use comes from us. So we may not actually burn it, but we sell it to burn - making us one of the highest per-capita carbon polluters on the planet.

Teachers Union: Computers Can Negatively Impact Children's Ability To Learn

thephydes you don't need to be a teacher... (310 comments)

to see this, just look in any cafe. Several people around a table all checking their phones. Social interaction has definitely changed, in some ways for the worse. As for learning, other posters have mentioned engagement. The top students will not need to see "exciting" stuff to learn because they love learning and being challenged. The middle to low students will need to be entertained because that is what they are used to - TV, facebook, youtube, etc etc. Unfortunately this is the way of the new world. At the school where I work, the Phys Ed teachers tell me about children who have never climbed trees or chased/kicked a ball, and have terrible gross and fine motor skills - another symptom of technology not doing them a favour I suspect.

The Shrinking Giant Red Spot of Jupiter

Another testament to one of the most amazing "machines" ever created. Hubble is a truly awesome telescope, and the pictures that come from it continue to amaze and astound us.

Ancient Desert Glyphs Pointed Way To Fairgrounds

thephydes Re: Logical (38 comments)

And you don't have a fucking clue either. Come up with a better, evidence-based solution or shut the fuck up. At least the guess was based on fact - Paraca's preceded Nazca's - rather than some bullshit theory dressed up as "science".
