Re: Thirteen kilograms less Dabbsy?
Alistair’s weight-loss smugathon continues, taking the total so far to 13kg.
… or, since I went vegetarian this year,
Leads me to believe it's not so much weight loss, as dangerous malnutrition...
Re: Household insurance
You would need at the very least 40 bags of potatoes pilled on top of each other before the lock would give way
What's that in jubs?
Re: Fat-Burning Hats
Then it's probably best that the hat comes with a big furry jacket to optimize performance... (optional extra, POA.)
Re: Fat-Burning Hats
Shouldn't be too hard- you burn a lot of energy regulating your temperature, and the head is one of the places that looses most heat, so shave the head, mount a refrigeration unit in the hat, and Bingo, weight loss.
Also, a big heavy hat will mean you burn more energy carrying it around and strengthen core muscles trying to stay upright with a fridge on the head.
The deluxe model can have a couple of slots to insert beers, for relaxing after a heavy hat wearing session.
You could even recover some energy with a peliter effect layer between the scalp and the refrigeration unit, and potentially combine it with one of those neoprene belts, redirecting the extracted heat into the belly where it can raise the core temperature, requiring more heat loss through the head.
Perpetual motion, until you run out of fat. Or collapse under the weight. Whichever.

Best cab I ever had, I got in, gabbled the address, and the GPS heard me and repeated it back, and off we went. Didn't have to speak to the driver at all...

Give it a couple of years, and the killer bees, grown huge and souped up on sugar from all the unpicked fruit, will be a tricky target for a nuclear tipped cruise...
Ideal targets for an agile air superiority fighter like the typhoon.

Re: Why LIGO Is a Scam
It is falsifiable
Teleport the sun hundreds of light years away. If the earth immediately continues in a straight line, then gravity is instantaneous action at a distance. If it continues in orbit until the last light reaches earth, then gravity is transmited at the speed of light.
Not an easy experiment, I agree.

Re: Fair compromise

But a fair comment (admittedly, from the daily mash...)

It will end when Meatloaf becomes the artist formally known as Mince.
There once was an artist called Prince,
Who on stage would posture and mince,
Then just for a giggle,
Changed his name to a squiggle,
And nobody's heard of him since...

Re: A modest proposal
Give us the one called McNeal!
Surely everyone's heard of cats?
Can they change the name? When I see SPB you keep getting my hopes up that you are getting somewhere with the FAA. :(
Regarding the weight, the SPB plus payload tips the scales at 4,500kg
made me do a double take.

Re: Sound of zero hands clapping
Temperature is the average energy per degree of freedom (number of particles multiplied by the number of ways they can move). In a complete vacuum, there are zero particles, and the sum of their energy is zero. Ask your C compiler, and it will tell you 0./0. is not a number.
Photons are particles too... The icy cold of spaaaaace has lots of them, their energy averages out to about 2.7 Kelvin.
If you made a box full of space, to exclude photons from the universe, then the box will be in equilibrium with the surrounding space- it will also radiate photons between its walls with an average energy of about 2.7 kelvin.
It was a dream compared to the Z80.
Indeed :) Taught myself assembler on a 6502. Thought I was pretty good until I saw the Z80 manual...
Skipped it and went on to a 68000 instead.
Didn't the Model A have a 6502? Which might have a small instruction set, but it wasn't RISC... Due to complex addressing modes, mostly. And variable length instructions. While it had minimal registers and used ram instead, that was mostly because getting registers on die was seriously expensive in the 70s.
Fun VB bug.
We had an ID that was rapidly approaching the max for a 32 bit int in a critical application. VB having no 64 bit long type, the decision was to use the currency type as it was a variant and a 64bit long underneath. We never need to do any operations on this, so it was all fine.
All good up till the point where we pass the ID to a com object. The com was expecting a 64bit long.
For no good reason, every time we pass in the ID, by the time it hit the COM code, it was incremented by 1. Tried a few things, make the COM expect a variant and convert to 64bit long, make it expect a currency type and convert to long, to no avail.
Eventually we ended up passing it as a string and having the COM expect a 64bit long. We still don't know what was happening, probably at some point in the COM interface the currency type was being converted to a float and the conversion to 64bit long was off by one, but we just don't know.
So now we have an integer ID that is a currency type variant that needs to be passed around as a string, just so it can be recognized correctly as a long on the other end.

The day they build a self-driving 6000SUX...
Still using a lumia 800. Still happy. Battery still just about gets through the day. (It used to do 3 days. If i forget to plug in overnight, then a top up in the car is enough to get me to the end of the work day at least.)
Wave was cool. I miss it.
Re: Misses the point entirely
To be fair, I was mostly joking about my dad, who was an unscrupulous bastard when it came to monopoly. Mostly allowed because there is no official receiver, or monopoly and mergers commission in monopoly. So really, it teaches the futility of unregulated monopoly capitalism.
If the receiver could ensure a fair sale of the assets to ensure the debt was paid, and the monopoly commission could regulate swap deals to prevent insider trading and monopoly building, the unscrupulous dads would have to play fair with their kids :)
Re: Misses the point entirely
It's supposed to teach kids the futility of capitalism- there's only one winner, who is an unscrupulous bastard (and usually your dad), and everyone else ends up bankrupt and in tears...
