In Fortran

Program dog

parameter(n=101,m=101,luout=10)

parameter(big=10.0, small=1.0)

open(unit=luout,file='dogsballs')

xo = 0.0

zo = 0.0

radius = big

do i = 1 , 2

yo = float(i*2-3)

write(luout,*) n,m,1

call balls(luout,radius,xo,yo,zo,n,m)

enddo

end program dog

subroutine balls(luout,radius,xo,yo,zo,n,m)

pi = 3.14159

do i = 1 , n

theta = 2.0*pi*float(i-1)/float(n)

do j = 1 , m

phi = pi*float(j-1)/float(m)

x = xo + radius*cos(theta)*sin(phi)

y = yo + radius*sin(theta)*sin(phi)

z = zo + radius*cos(phi)

write(luout,*) x, y, z

enddo

enddo

end subroutine balls

Re: Weights and Measurements

I think more specifics are needed. Was that a short or long fuckton?

Re: US spelling...

The US gallon is based on the "wine gallon" while the "imperial gallon" is based on the "beer gallon". No doubt the wine gallon was preferred as it was smaller, and thus more American...

LOHAN

I am sure the X37 is going to release a paper plane, just to demoralize the Onion staff. Ever since LOHAN was announced they have been gearing up to this.

Re: Rods are out. Rails are in.

Ah but rockets like to take off down wind. I tried launching a rocket into the wind once, and it became a very low-flying cruise missile which struck the house at the end of the field. Slightly downwind is the best option.

However as the balloon will be moving at the same speed as the wind, I don't see how a drogue will help in any way.

Secret Levels?

Do you get to help the Captain find rum bottles and get drunk or is that a secret level?

DARPA Requirement

Being this is a DARPA project, how will the brain chips work when inside a glass jar full of bubbling liquid?
