You didn't obscure 16 (sixteen!) phallic symbols!
There is no free lunch. You will at least have to surrender a valid e-mail address to reserve

LED lamps contain scarce metals, but only in tiny amounts (fraction of a milligram). Recycling LED lamps for those metals is currently not cost effective.
The paper of Euro notes contain thulium, the second least abundant of the rare earth metals. It is visible as fluorescent fibers under ultraviolet light. I do not know how the notes are recycled, but I do not think they will end up in landfill sites.
The documents from 2005:
Ammonium nitrate (NH4NO3) decomposes exothermally at 210 °C in H2O (steam) and N2O (laughing gas). N2O is a better oxidizer than pure oxygen.
So a mixture of ammonium nitrate and organic matter is a powerful explosive. It is however known to explode spontaneously.
N2O in itself is stable. In 1914 Robert H. Goddard patented a rocket apparatus powered by N2O and gasoline.
1) replacable Duracell batteries, lasting 18 hours.
2) non-replacable non-rechargable Li-batteries, lasting 1 year.
3) rechargable batteries, keeps Teddy at 37 °C for 3 hours.
4) exploding lithium-ion battery ⁕.
5) plutonium-238 †.
⁕ only option for G-Dragon.
† only option for G-Alien.
The Swiss call theirs Eidgenössisches Departement für Verteidigung, Bevölkerungsschutz und Sport or "Federal Department of Defence, Civil Protection and Sport".

That is for radioactive waste. We can leave the mining to the political prisoners of future dictators.
The largest has a diameter of just over 10 km or an area of 69000 Olympic swimming pools.
Ceres' visible albedo is 0.090±0.0033, that is pitchblack. Use your favorite graphics editor to compare R/G/B=0/0/0 with R/G/B=23/23/23 to convince yourself. I do not know how white the "white" spots are.
Beer because Ceres was the goddess of grain crops.
The irony given the name of the company is that Nikola Tesla was the inventor of polyphase AC and his archrival, Thomas Alva Edison, saw a future with direct current.
If you don't want to send your crash dumps to Microsoft, don't install this tool.
So ... apparently Visual Studio Code can not be used while your machine is airgapped.
It's what stops uppity 2nd-line people from developing ideas above their station.
BTW after 10000+ day as UNIX-superuser I do not trust anybody with that power, including myself. Cmd.exe is more benign.
with garbage collection by helicopter as I have seen (and heard) in Wallis.
Evidently plaintiff Susan Harvey used her Bank of America debet card without checking her account and/or changing her PIN when she found an unauthorized withdrawal.
"How is a debit card different from a credit card? You can use a debit card just like a credit card wherever Visa or MasterCard cards are accepted. However, when you use a debit card, the purchase amount is deducted from your Bank of America checking account."
"Where can I use my debit card to inquire about account balances, transfer funds or withdraw cash from my account? You can get these services at any Bank of America ATM across the country and at many ATM networks worldwide. Some services may not be available at non-Bank of America ATMs. Fees may apply for the available services at non-Bank of America ATMs."
Almost all radiation leaks away if the microwave oven is turned on while it is empty. This can be shown with a 6 cm ø wireloop, a Ge-diode and an mA-meter.
A Roman emperor once held a banquet with 300 creamcovered virgins to lick off for dessert.
Chaplin was an obsessive perfectionist. Sometimes it took over a hundred retakes before he was satisfied with the result.
May be it is wiser to leave the first ten bytes untouched and encrypt the remainer. In that way it is possible to hide a needle in a heap of needles.
The bid to lay the cable ducts for the broadband fiber network in Belgium was initially awarded to to the lowest bidder. The snag was they thought to speed things up by not fitting watertight sockets between the sections of the cable ducts.
On april 30 1937 Westinghouse celebrated the completion of the huge structure of the 200" Hale telescope. At the occasion Albert Einstein asked Rein Kroon, the chief egineer, What happens if somebody makes a mistake in manufacturing?. Kroon answered We build it over again. Whereupon Einstein said My work is much simpler. When I make a mistake I just tear up the paper I wrote on.
The budget for the period 2014-2020 is 7071 million Euros in current prices. That is less than 2 Euros p.p. p.a.
Regular application of dental floss at the intended body parts by all exhibitors will do even more to attract me to a trade show than high-heeled ladies.
By the way, extravagant shoes are not banned by RSA security conference new dress code.
The Dutch heating season starts around September 1 and ends at May 1. In mild winters as we have had here for the last few years only limited home heating in the evening is required. Summer heatwaves occur, but are the exception. So a server/heater at home running 7/24 is no option.
However I enjoy unlimited tapwater at 60 °C heated by Eneco's district heating. HPC with hot water cooling can be one of the sources.
The appointment of all Commissioners, including the President (Jean-Claude Juncker 2014-2019), is subject to the approval of the European Parliament. In office, they remain accountable to European Parliament, which has sole power to dismiss the Commission.
Directly elected by EU voters every 5 years, members of the European Parliament represent the people.
"Given that the EU does not recognise the illegal annexation of Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the City of Sevastopol, under the terms of the Horizon 2020 Association Agreement with Ukraine, legal persons established in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea or the city of Sevastopol are not eligible to participate. Should the illegal annexation of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the City of Sevastopol end, the Agreement will be revised accordingly."
There are enough situations where delivery by drone with visual line-of-sight will be economically viable. Think the farm at the end of a dirt track, a mountain hut, a ship or an island or just any disaster zone.
From Notes by an Oxford Chiel by Lewis Carroll, The new method of evaluation as applied to π.
In the early treatizes on this subject, the mean value assigned to π will be found to be 40.000000. Later writers suspected that the decimal point had been accidentally shifted, and that the proper value was 400.00000.
A Tesla-coil? 7kV AC out, for a starter.
had Sophie bad breath? We will never know.
Correction: 99.99995 % waste.
BTW stopped using the device years ago. No reget.
of all the photons (in the visible spectrum) leaving the telly only the ones entering the viewers' eyes are relevant.
That is 99.9998 % waste (2x2 eyes at 2.5m, pupildiameter 5mm).
Ages ago I put a relais driven by a flip-flop controlled by a microphone and an opamp band-filter in the audio circuit of my Sony TV. I can (un)mute the TV by a whistle.
It is always good to see in an animation that the Earth rotates in the right direction. It seems animators give it a 50% change.
Goddard may have forgotten, but here on Earth we have weather.
So also links and comments on this site.
I am pretty certain that Portugal can bring a better soccer team in the field than FB.
They will erase your VISA from light years away.
Nop, even a magnetar with 10^12T has to be at the distance of Jupiter to make its magnetic field 5 times stronger than the geomagnetic field. May be enough to erase your VISA, but I guess you will have other things to worry about with a magnetar in your backyard.
A radio telescope cannot measure the distance to a source. It can only measure the DM (the burst is detected later at lower frequencies). The standard interpretation is that the radio signal traversed a tenuous plasma in our 'own' Galaxy and - if the RM is larger - in the extragalactic medium or near the source.
The large circular polarization of 21±7% for FRB 140514 hints at extraordinary conditions at the source. A distance of 5.5 billion light-years for FRB 140514 is an upper limit.
We need a three-letter acronym for the Year 2038 Problem. Enough 32-bit embedded systems will still hang around at 03:14:07 UTC on 19 January 2038 to cause problems.
Will it make god dissappear in a puff of logic ?
Not necessarily, Athanasius Kircher, a German Jesuit, a.k.n.a. the last man who knew everything, published in 1663 his Polygraphia nova et universalis which promises the reduction of all languages to one and the extension of one language to all. A kind of proto-Babel-fish.
He was inspired by Gustavus Selenus' Polygraphia nova of 1624, which expanded work going back to the time of Cicero.
Kircher also wrote extensively on the seventy-two names of god. The word was his bread and butter.
Impressive is not the computer in the cabinet, but the battery of Leclancé cells (model 1866) it contains as a power supply.
Indias annual military budget is 38.35 billion USD (FY 2014, nominal). Its (100% military) Defence Research and Development Organisation has a budget of 1600 million USD and India is estimated to have an arsenal of 90-110 nuclear weapons (SIPRI 2014).
Let them research the Mikheyev-Smirnov-Wolfenstein mechanism on a shoestring. Neutrinos are harmless, they zap the earth core unhindered.
