    Trigger happy mods?

    Phi for all is one of those mods who is extremely observant and thinks things through before he moderates. I think you either have him confused with someone else or you have no idea what you are talking about.

    DARK ENERGY IN A NEW LIGHT

    It is also worth mentioning for @CJWilli1 that the metric tensor is the mathematical object that explains the structure of spacetime under General Relativity: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metric_tensor_(general_relativity)
  3. Because they're pu**ies.

    How to disprove these creationist claims?

    I would add that it is a futile task to prove or disprove an assertion to someone who is strongly bound emotionally. Lack of knowledge driven by primitve fear is such a strong motivator that attemtps at coherent discussion are useless in most cases.

    Today I Learned

    All 14 short episodes take about 1 hour to watch, the first one is really short, takes only 2 minutes. I'm learning a lot from these: Edit: These series deal with PHD level math knowledge which correlates directly in this case to modern physics, I find this series digestable having no background in math or physics and having no academic background. I recommend this to anyone who's a math semi-moron like me who wants to learn.

    The Fifth Force

    Thanks for the example Janus, I must have had a momentary lapse of reason.

    The Fifth Force

    I must say that you Sir are an expert on complex thought patterns. I’m reading the above for the 5th time and I’m still having problems with absorbing it.

    The Fifth Force

    I'm afraid that your nophysicsknowledge 5th force can be explained by simple Newtonian physics. Do you care to learn?

    How to legalize caning

    Yes. The lashes went over each other in his post and I can't see sh**.
  10. I think what Sensei means is that volume is measured in liters, mass is measured in kilograms or pounds. A liter of oil will weigh more than a liter of water.

    solutions to overpopulation

    Burn it. Burn it all.

    so I am interested in "systems security"

    I would suggest you start by learning how TCPIP works. Learn the basics of networking first then go into learning what makes modern routing switches tick. All the modern protocols and technologies that go into the modern networking infrastructure. Then go into learning how to code, it won’t help you much with „hacking” if you don’t know the networking basics first. Please note that „hacking” is nothing more than breaking in and steeling, it doesn’t matter if you do it in real life or in the virtual world, its against the law all the same and you will suffer the consequences if you break the law.
  13. We will be switching from a 43” 720p Pioneer plasma PDP436XDE. The TV is too small for our new place and its only 720p. I payed a small fortune for that damn thing in 2007, time to move on. Looking at getting 65” for under 2K USD. We need to use it primarilly for Netflix, movies from the PC and MS Office work, would like to get a screen which will be less prone to pixel burn than our current Pionneer Plasma. I was looking at the Samsung UE65NU8042 but maybe I could do better? Any siggestions from someone up to date on these things are welcome.
  14. Up untill now I was treating this with humour, not anymore. Sory to hear that man.
  15. Agreed. Although I’m sure the algorithms figured out by now that I’m too stubborn to be influenced by anything That actually sounds really cool. You should have played along and asked for loads of money for the information you „have” They couldn’t prosecute you once it would come out you’re not a spy and you got nothing.
  16. If you’re not Jeff Bezos whom you are not, I presume it must have been love/relationship related? I’m neither Jeff Bezos nor do I carry a risk of love related spying so I should be fine. In case of someone actually spying on me the worst can happen is the rest of the world knowing the kind of porn I watch and what torrents I sometimes download, I don’t think thats worth an effort for anyone to hack me.
  17. Yep, I know...he was my hero when I was in my teens.
  18. I sincerely hope I can get to a point in my life in which someone would want to go through such measures to do that to me
  19. I was taught by my former boss who is a networking guru/professor that securing the first device in the network chain is the key. I would presume that all home appliances including TV's are vulnerable to attacks but having a well configured and secured access point/switch/router at home would be too much fuss for the attacker to tamper with it, I would presume he/she would look for easier targets out there instead.
  20. Thankyou both, it looks like I'll go for the SAMSUNG UN65NU8000.

    THE TIME-FLOW FALLACY

    You can raise money with those?

    THE TIME-FLOW FALLACY

    Perhaps it would be easier for the OP to accept the definition of time in physics if he understands that both time and distance are relative depending on the observers reference frame. Intuitively you wouldn’t want to look for tangible properties of a meter or a mile, the same goes for time but I guess its a little less intuitive.

    Not entirely, you seem to get it perfectly well. It was semi-stale though considering the context I agree. I have a hunch that hyper and beecee will not be loosing too much sleep over this.

    Its a fairly common joke to purposely confuse them.
