  1. I agree, it's like the Mexican cartels, you take out a leader and the next leader is even more violent than the last one. In the long run you make it worse. It's not a very good strategy. Maybe better to focus on the leaders key men instead.
  2. Meet the new boss. Abdullah Qardash, also known as 'the destroyer'
  3. Curious layman


    Why can't you see who giving you likes? Compared to some of the people on the forum, who actually know about science, my posts contain no substance whatsoever, yet I've got 22. I know there not important, I'm just curious.
  4. Or people who enjoy pain. Thankfully this guys long dead. Albert fish X-ray of Fish's pelvis and perineum, with two dozen self embedded needles.
  5. Haha me too, 'horsed for courses. It's not all orange rabbits' - very interesting thread BTW.
  6. Is it even possible to have a society with no money ( paper or electronic). How would that work? Where would the motivation to work come from, wouldnt this 'new' motivation not be the same as money. Being serious, this interests me.

  9. Wow, easily the most arrogant post I've read from you, are you really that intelligent? Im sorry but Boris, yes Boris, would leave you looking like a idiot if you challenged him, in fact, most of them would, and I'm including politicians from all over the world chump. You probably think Donald Trump is an idiot too. Y'know, that dim witted billionaire who's the president of the United States. Yep, clearly an idiot. Sorry, but that's just intellectual snobbery at its worst, I hate to think what you think of the general public. Shame really, i normally find your posts informative.

  12. Ok thanks. Marsquakes a link to go with video quote.. The craft sat on the surface of Mars for nearly six months before its first quake was detected. A "surprisingly high-frequency" seismic signal. The quakes suggest that the Martian crust is like a mix of the Earth's crust and that of the Moon. Cracks in the Earths crust seal over time as water fills them with new minerals. This enables sound waves to continue uninterrupted as they pass through old fractures. Drier crusts like the moon remain fractured after impacts, scattering sound waves for tens of minutes rather than allowing them to travel in a straight line. Mars, with its cratered surface, is slightly more Moon-like, with seismic waves ringing for a minute or so, whereas quakes on earth can come and go in seconds. Oh, I'm on iPad 4 by the way. I'll work it out.
  13. How do I post videos so that the actual video comes up without having to go to a new page? I used to think it was me, but on another forum when i type in the https link, the actual video comes up. I'm trying to post this ( NASA insight at work on Mars, starts at 25 secs) https://youtu.be/m9cCuW9nIQg
  14. Unlikely, most countries wouldn't be able to afford fusion, and those that could would prefer their own anyway. then there's the problem of having enough qualified engineers, South Africa being a good example. To be the new Saudi we would need to sell the fuel, not the "engine" so to speak. And China and the US would soon overtake us, especially with the size of their military and space agency. It would definitely be a game changer, especially for space propulsion, but I don't think it will change the world.
  15. https://www.labmate-online.com/news/news-and-views/5/stfc/project-could-inspire-next-generation-x-ray-lasers-and-particle-accelerators/50418 quote.. A ground breaking technique that could produce an electron beam up to 10,000 times brighter than the most powerful beams today, has been developed by researchers from the UK and US. The findings could be particularly applicable for use in the next generation of more compact, more powerful particle accelerators, enhancing scientific applications. It was this however which caught my attention, quote... These ultrabright beams may eventually allow production of X-ray pulses short and bright enough to allow observation of electronic motion inside atoms and molecules on their natural timescales. Its like the polar opposite of the black hole photo, the perfect companion.
  16. Wouldn't that depend on your IQ/intelligence? Ive met a few people who had mastered a specific area but also had vast knowledge of other subjects too. All had a very high IQ. I've personally mastered a few specific areas (in work) but when I master something new, I generally lose other skills as a result. It's only when different skills are closely related that I can improve on both, though always more one than the other, never both equally.
  17. Maybe... According to astronomers Planet nine maybe hard to spot because it's a primordial black hole- a superdense lump of matter about the size of a tennis ball. And if that's the case, then we need to search for it in an entirely different way. More at link..https://www.technologyreview.com/s/614441/is-planet-9-actually-a-primordial-black-hole/
  18. Lol I think women still need/use one, for the same reason they use them already.
  19. Edit.. VR not AI. Though you would need both I assume.
  20. Bollocks. You just have to be convinced it's real. I can already achieve your version of AI when I go to sleep.
  21. Can you imagine how much energy using full dive VR would need. To be continually in VR 24/7 would cost a fortune. The average person just wouldn't be able to afford it. And if you could afford it, you'd probably be wealthy and wouldn't need it. Why pretend to drive a Ferrari when you can drive your own. Maybe if there was a way for people to be productive inside VR, someway to pay for the electricity, then maybe. It would be very appealing to the majority of people I reckon. I'd definitely be up for it, but the reason for wanting to do it is the same reason I couldn't do it- lack of money. Would be interesting to see some of the different worlds people would choose to live in (if there was a choice). I'd personally prefer to travel back to different periods in history, rather than live in the future. Would be fascinating. Living in a film or T.V would be good as well- The Matrix, King Kong, Heat, Harry Potter, The Dirty Dozen, Knight Rider, Basic Instinct...
