Couldn't you just stick that lot on a server farm somewhere and connect to it over t'internet?
Not sure about your pricing. Carbon fibre is really quite a home tech thing, you can buy a 2kg reel of carbon fibre string for 80 quid, a bucket of epoxy would hardly break the bank. There's some tricky tooling and you'd probably need to be able to borrow a decent lathe for the nozzle and cone, but again possible for most students although harder for the rest of us.
I also wonder about the nozzle, given the reaction mass is an incompressible fluid is there very much you can do with it?

The stamp people?

Well yes, but is it plausible that someone could do it accidentally?

It would also be handy for detecting fires.
Surely women are typically much smaller than men. I was just out with a friend who's 5' and probably 50kgs, I'm 6'2" and about 100kgs. It seems implausible that we would be equally affected by the same amount of alcohol. Of course not just women are small either, I know blokes that must be half my weight too. Shouldn't size be a factor as much as gender?
Once you're deluged with warnings about absolutely everything you just start to ignore them. They really should be trying to set guidance that people who do drink might be plausibly expected to attempt, even if that level isn't entirely safe.
I would imagine they're envisioning how I'd scream as they peeled my face off with a knife, that's how I think about them, so why would they be different?
I would come in and obtain my code crushing the banana into a pulp in my fist and wiping the excreta on the imbeciles desk.
(We don't have an enormously supportive environment here)
...and police "intelligence".
> "But how do we quantify the gender and cultural bias - parents and peers as well as school - that funnels clever girls in Europe away from STEM and into softer, lower-paid careers, as dictated by their arts and humanities degrees."
Not sure this is generally true, women are significantly more than half of medical graduates and most doctors will be women soon despite the historic bias.
It is IT and engineering specifically, rather than sciences generally that women don't like.

You either replied to a random posting or completely misunderstood what he was saying.

Nor is China.
I think the yield is too small to be close, the initiator of the Castle Bravo bomb was claimed to be 60kt or 10x the apparent yield of the Korean device. Even the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombs yielded double this device leaving open the possibility that they actually just got 6000 tonnes of TNT together.
>No, we can't. And if you even so much as ASK to own a nuclear missile, they look at you like you're totally bat-shit crazy.
Even smaller stuff like surface to air missiles or artillery pieces seems to get frowned upon too.
But what serious militia could act without air defence and artillery support these days? Look at the mess the Syrian rebels got themselves into.
> ...the important number is how many people die violently.
This is where comparisons with Britain fall down, Americans are generally nice people, Brits are often brutal sociopaths who will kill people with their bare hands should an argument about a garden hedge go pear-shaped.
Putting an equivalent number of guns in the hands of Brits would be a truly terrifying prospect.
However banning guns has led to Britain having a much lower rate of actual deaths.
>How often do you need your fire extinguisher?
I don't have a fire extinguisher.
> Serious question; where is the line drawn and which amendment or law covers this?
It's a supreme court decision that emphasises that the limit is that of the reasonable needs of a militia.
I think it's further limited by acts that make it hard to own certain types of weapons through sheer quantity of paperwork.
Sorry don't have time to hunt references.
>The 2nd amendment gives people the right to bear arms.
But they don't have the right to bear any arms they might like, they can't own a nuclear missile for instance.
>...well, you can try hitting your assailant with the gun.
How often do people have this problem in America where an assailant is attacking them in such a way that lethal force is necessary?
Is it really so frequent an event?
Who's got time for video? Where's the transcript?
Well I for one am glad they have biggered the language in this way.
It depends what you're doing with it, but your map probably isn't accurate to 1m.
Yup, why bother when people are cheap as chips?
>That's why they have IE11 Enterprise Mode.
Does that work in XP? Because that's why most of the public sector is on IE8.
Makes you wonder if we actually need JANET at all...
I'm a bit disappointed there's not a good robotics toolkit for the pi actually. I think a lot of this kind of stuff that gets suggested is really just a rehash of past or present commercial offerings. As someone suggested for instance, what does this offer that an old commodity smartphone doesn't?
I'm really looking forward to seeing some kind of pluggable, addressable servo and motor controller system with good solid cock-up prevention. Really the gameboy, media player, mobile phone things don't need doing again.
Could he also suggest a way to monumentally fuck up your life?
>Indeed, the shame being he should have deleted it himself!
Yup, if you're concerned about how anything on facebook could be misused, then you shouldn't be on facebook.
>HOW DOES THIS WORK DAMMIT?
As I understand it.... They go in normal slots, they operate at DRAM speed, if the power goes they back-up to flash that is also on the DIMM.
I guess you effectively get a machine you can just pull the plug on then when you turn it back on it's on instantly (although if it takes 40secs to back-up the RAM then it'll take 20secs to boot).
Was it actually better than VHS or not?
All we need now is a robot audience and humans could be entirely freed from the tedium of the events.
I four won am glad of the pedantitudinality off the commentarditude.
On the other hand the way that this has been reported shows that it makes sense to stick everything on an encrypted disk just so you can say "Yes it was all encrypted" with total confidence.
There's no white flag above her door...

Grief they're like those weirdos on The Apprentice.
Time to ditch it surely this makes it obsolete?
Just crank up the private hire rate to recover any costs.
I have a device in the bathroom that provides me with a fat check as often as I wish.
Seems like the obvious choice, might get RT interested when you tell them how US and EU governments blocked it.
Possibly hard to get US explosives delivered to Russia without an arms export/import licence, but the Ruskies must be able to whip together an equivalent motor...
Might not be the best metric for "pulling success", it may be that the skinnies are staying together because they're happy with the selection whereas fatties are constantly hunting something with fewer folds of lard.
However, as Zappa said, "The bigger the cushion the better the pushin'".
Aside from the destruction of their natural habitat, will it kill the buggers?
It seems to end with "I request urgent medical advice." penicillin to GCHQ sharpish? (I have heard they have need, those honey traps donch'ya'no)
The late P3s maybe but remember the slot 1 bodge?
I remember how bad the P3 was, that really did suck.
