Boeing backs biofuel boffinry

In The Long...

...run, biofuels reduce to a subset of solar collection.

It's good to see serious investment in boffinry put to the task.

Results in on why life, the universe and everything exists

...And, You Know, Everything. or Yin Yang Redeaux.

1. In the beginning, there were only photons.

2. They were compressed into a firecracker the size of a pinhead.

3. These compressed photons inflated into proper photons.

4. There was not enough space for all the photons, so they orbited around each other forming into all manner of quarks and their antimatter counterparts, destroying each other, and reforming .

5. As we can see from cosmic background images, these processes did not proceed uniformly.

CONJECTURE: That certain patterns favored the creation of right handed matter.

Guns Are Illegal, Yet...

...40,000 people killed in Mexico by the war on drugs.

It is USA pot prohibition that creates the multi billion dollar marketplace.

Just to keep this in perspective, 225,000 AMerkins die annually due to physician errors, drug side effects, hospital infections, etc.

Prohibition...

How to pipe live telly into your pocket with 4G

Disco-Legend-Zeke
Pint

It' About The...

...battery.

Device makers need to catch up to the battery demand for streams.

...usage caps. Carriers need to deliver bandwidth with realistic consumption pricing.

Wholesale prices for delivery are below 50 cents per GB, and flat rate mega bandwidth is available in many QWEST-now-Century Link cities with no build charge within 1500 ft of existing fiber node.

Screen size matters a bit also, especially after a pint or two.

Machine translation cracks 18th century occult cipher

Bit level, actually.

" while a cipher operates at a character level."

More Importantly, a cipher scrambles lorries full of informational eggs together into one bowl instead of remapping each Easter egg.*

Most applicably, beer** scrambles useless thought.

Building An In House Hypobaric...

...facility would save a lot of travel. Suitable test chambers can be added at scrap metal prices to primary investment in pumps and valves, plus a nice SCADA to run it all. The altitude sensors need to be developed. And it would be REALLY cool to have a Hypobaric Wind tunnel.

Sponsors can get advertising space on the gear (around your logo, of course.)

There is no need to get a long burn for ignition testing I am sure the motor manufacturer would be happy to supply short burning motors in return for test data.

There are chemical mixtures that are insulators until burned. If you are using electronic controls, adding electronic flame sensors along the propellant grain burn would give proof of ignition as well as end of burn detection to initiate other features such as wing deployment.

Paris because there would not be a LOHAN without her.

Rubbing an iPhone on your face won't cure acne - FTC

Disco-Legend-Zeke
Pint

Google Says*...

...acne treatment light is about 420** nano-meters. Several manufacturers now produce LED's at this wavelength.

The latest in stage lighting uses them in 7-color LED instruments. They are also popular in overpriced medical lamps.

Yes, Herby, you could find violet paint chips, and make a reflector, But a filter*** would be more comfortable, and could be worn in sunlight or used over wide spectrum "actinic" lamps.

IANAD, but the best treatment for acne is to express sebum from healthy skin and spread it on skin and lips. I often use "nose oil" as an emergency lubricant for metal and plastic.

* By making a link to Wikipedia.

** Another victory for the pot lobby.

*** You could also ingest colloidal silver until your skin turned blue. Since this is not reversible, not recommended unless you want to pursue a career appearing at Star Trek conventions.
