  1. If you invented the wheel, call the White House now. The Prez sez: you need his 'protection'.

  2. Don't shut down "your" computer. Windoz is corrupting your boot sector 90%

      Think it's ok now. Windows update really prefers windows boot loader to GRUB sometimes.

      I only have windows to play kerbal space but i use linux for everything else. Windows still manages to eat my time.

  3. Hey Science people. Caught myself lurking here more and more and I realized how much I enjoy rational people with critical thinking skills, so i decided to log in to say thanks. Shout-out to any of the old regular posters lurking out there.

      You're welcome and thank YOU. I completely agree about reading reasoned thoughts on a social media platform. I can't stand the inanities that flow from people I know personally on places like FB and Twitter. I find critical thinking uplifting, whereas willful ignorance is just depressing. Glad you're here!

  4. You're gun-right is my obligation to buy body armor.Whom do i ask for recompense?

      Which then becomes my obligation to buy armor piercing rounds. Where does it stop?!

      I'll see your armor piercing rounds,and raise Total Recall style active holographic camouflage to waste your ammo.

      Now I need an infrared scope! That's expensive too!

  6. i wondered if inertial mass and gravitational mass have different causes and no way to tell the cause by measuring the mass. then i spent all night in Gettier's barn.

      Oh I hope you heal soon. ..Yes, they're distinguishable from each other. ..No problem, it'll be several months before a paper is ready.

      thanks for the well wishes. if you see a mass moving through space, you can distinguish between the kinetic energy from freefall, and the kinetic energy from other accelerations?

      Admins would want me to say that my answers aren't mainstream. In theory it's possible to detect if neighboring charges are experiencing a force from gravity or inertia.

  7. Ever had a day where you felt just like a wrench in the monkeyworks?

      Thanks. Somehow not being alone makes me feel better. Too much monkey business at the local telco.

  8. All you need is nand

  9. What's YOUR Axiom of Choice? Does exist mean "one we can find" like the left shoe from a pair of shoes? Or does exist mean "we know there is one, even if we can't specify it" like which sock goes on your left foot?

      This is a problem. I bought the infinity pack of tube sox,and now the drawer won't quite close. I want to put all the left sox in one drawer and leave all the right sox where they are...

  13. I've often heard that two wrongs don't make a right. What about misquoting while plagiarizing?

      Slap them all the way back to the old testament

      I'm not sure who "they" are, but the old testament may be too liberal. Eye for an eye is Code of Hammurabi brand conservative.

  14. Stuck in Seattle V.A. for the last 10 days I've been subjected to Pox newspinion blasting me from every teevee. First thing I'm going to do when I get home tomorrow is shoot my damn t.v.

      Now that's the first argument I have read on this site for the personal ownership of firearms that I have actually agreed with.
