Yes, pretty well known
I think it was mentioned on QI and/or Mythbusters.
And people think
Facebook is creepy.
If you're going that route
wouldn't an integrated power/data networkbe a better idea? I suspect, though, that line loss would eat up any savings on the power side.
You mean two sheets of metal with some plastic between? Even electrolytics aren't exactly complex.
50% of the object you can see right now
Chris Foss as mentioned above. Great artist though his genius paradoxically wasn't really in the spaceship design
One of the best
(if not the best ) designs by Brian Johnson who was also responsible for the Nostromo and the Millennium Falcon. (I think those may have been mentioned.)
"into an Arduino again"
You say that kike it's a bad thing.
OM-4 Ti - Pah
The OM-1, now that was a real camera.
Where's the luddite icon?
Douglas Adams was always right
even when he was wrong!
is to learn something about the subject before you start.
It works in other areas too.
Who the hell's writing the universe these days?
The guy was wearing a white coat so it's all legit.
"Dude, you're a barista"
Deserves to enter the language.
I was expecting a Harley
But, hey, penis works too.
Coupons and cupcakes
The two things wrong with the modern world.*
*Comment may not be entirely true. There's Facebook, Twitter and automatic checkouts among other things.
For as long as I can remember the joke has been that fusion has been 30 years away for the last fifty years but just lately it seems the 30 has changed to 20. Does someone know something I don't?
that Michael Bay couldn't solve.
I don't think
Ada deserves that.
Oh, wait. . .
There is no study of "how men are using technology today" - even the not very bright marketing types can see the pointlessness of that.
If it's frictionless
you're using too much lube.
Since the lenses
aren't actually floating that shouldn't be a problem provide the display is kept minimal. On the other hand the lack of microsaccades might be (depending on what they actually do).
They won't be going anywhere near "the Russian Job"
Phobos-Grunt's just a distraction to keep the Martians occupied while Curiosity slips out the back way.
Did you read the article? Unlike you the judge can tell the difference between swearing and abuse.
another lens mount.
Six phallic symbols, a Canberra and a Meteor.
I find that hard to believe.
everything was wood veneer - why should processors be any different.
a lot of them are Catholics but I don't think "kill them all, God will recognise his own" is quite appropriate for Mexican military or police.
Your Vending Machine

Squid based e-book reader?
I'll wait for the mimic octopus version - it does colour and has a better refresh rate
In a prograde direction.
The atmosphere is "slowing it down" (or rather exerting drag) which is causing it to move into a new, lower, but faster, orbit. So it's both "slowing down" and "speeding up". The thing is the English language isn't exactly adapted to describing orbital mechanics.
they don't actually "ride" teenagers - just lasso 'em.
they don't actually "ride" teenagers - just lassoo 'em.
Get It Right!
Every one know that the Nazis fled the Earth in anti-gravity powered flying saucers not rocketships.
Doesn't anyone car about factual reporting anymore!
otherwise you have to do orbital insertion which is an even more "massive waste of weight".
All the resources
of the US military at their disposal and they still use a string for test-firings, Mythbusters style.
Having read "Man of Steel, Woman of Kleenex" I think I'll pass on that thanks.
And the iOS messaging app
is just tacky.
for <some> value of style.

I miss Sarah.
If airliners and bikes are made of the same materials
does that mean we'll see Airbus investing in bamboo plantations in the near future?
"fine-tuning neck articulation". Nonsense!
They just can't get the eyes to glow the appropriate evil shade of red.
Code for "realising you don't have to have your clitoris chopped off" (among other things).
