Yep, pretty much that.
Oh, and AC, in case I don't see you again, let me thank you for your contributions to
I hope AC stops by at soylentnews: it wouldn't be the same without him.
I'm leaving my excellent karma here (probably worth shit nowadays, anyone has now excellent karma but I had it before it was cool): I've seen beta and it is what pushed me over the edge.
Goodbye, thanks for all the fish, and hop by at http://soylentnews.org/~Jerry+Smith.
Sorry, but that's just Double Dutch to me.

It's a genuine sentence. A VERY typical one, but a correct one.
They might rename it, like was done with the KGB, but the "lights will not go out".
Try thinking before posting.
Peer pressure and social contagion. Youngsters see older people smoking and feeling good about it (the older ones being addicted, and really liking it), and there you have it.

So basically, one molecule of the thing in a gallon of water?
No. It's much, much less than that. The quoted value there is one part in 10^60. A mole is 6.02x10^23. There's about 200 moles of water molecules in 1 gallon (3.8 liters and 55 moles per liter for water). So one molecule of water in one gallon is one part in 10^26. To get one part in 10^60, you'll need about 10^34 gallons of water. Wikipedia indicates this is the volume of Betelgeuse (a massive star that's about a million times the volume of the sun.)
And this is why I don't skip AC's.

nothing happens, its NOT a product, its a pretty 3D render and a VC bait,
Exactly. This is a DESIGNER at work, not a scientist. It's about selling pretty pictures, and interesting ideas, but nothing more.
