  1. I'm not nitpicking but..... what if it's not obvious? Isn't that the point of being precise?
  2. Ok, and sorry for the first comment, work nights and haven't been to bed (but that's not your fault). I reckon you need to keep it as simple as possible, just something really basic. Try youtube as well. Or type in electricity science project and go on images for ideas. Oh, and I work in factories for a living, and they suck mate, trust me. Your definitely on the right track with the effort your putting in for this project. Good luck with it Dont the pictures help, it seems really simple. Your idea seems fine to me. Is it the actual putting it together/ connecting it up you can't do? Sensei or enthalpy would be good to ask I reckon. I'll message them. They might just ignore me though.
  3. Don't want to be rude, but if you can't get any clues from any of the above, you'll probably end up working in a factory anyway so I wouldn't worry about it. Maybe some more information on your part perhaps?
  4. Being miserable and heartbroken doesn't disprove God, that's ridiculous. And what about in the future, what if we can cure all illnesses and have no poverty (admittedly thats unlikely). Will that prove the existence of God? Also, in the end nobody survives..that's just life I'm afraid.
  5. Reminds me of the TV program Altered Carbon. They download your memory into Cortical Stacks (tech reversed engineered from aliens), You can put them into anybody (sleeves), so you get children who've been killed in accidents being downloaded into adults of a different sex, because it's paid for by the state, so you get what your given. It's pretty funny actually. You can also enter lifelike VR where you can feel and stuff. The wealthy can end up living for hundreds of years, becoming really powerful and successful. Almost Godlike, but if they live to long they can become insane. What's not funny though is that they can torture you to death and just keep bringing you back to life to kill again and again. F*ck that. Most people only do once or twice as they can't bear suffering the illnesses or old age. If immortality is like on the show, downloading memory's and still having to suffer illnesses like dementia, and remembering them when your "loaded back up", then no, imagine being able to remember all that, it would be to much to bear I think, imagine if you died in a fire? if immortality is just not dieing then I'd probably say yes. Imagine being able to explore the galaxy (hopefully :), or the universe? But then what would you do at the end of starlight, when it's just black holes, you'd be f*cked big time. So maybe not immortality, but a few hundred years would be nice.
  6. Never new this, but Ravens can talk... Talking raven. 12 seconds in.
  7. $1.8bn/$3.6bn doesn't sound like much for the US. They're spending over $700bn on military. They could do this easy. They could use the new submarine drones to do it. If it keeps away the aliens then it sounds good to me (you do mean the big green ones don't you?).
  8. But if there was a God, how would you know what their ultimate plan was? How could s/he teach empathy etc.. without pain, poverty etc.. What would be the point if everything was perfect for everybody. How would we know who was a genuinely good person. What you learn? I don't believe in God, but if there was, surely there actions wouldn't make any sense to us. I am sympathetic to you, people can be cruel. I wish you all the best.
  9. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QQMYpzbQIDA any chance of posting actual video, its very good. I can't do it I'm afraid. BTW, videos of a Tailorbird building nest. Very impressive I think (2:23 long)
  10. https://forms.office.com/Pages/ResponsePage.aspx?id=DQSIkWdsW0yxEjajBLZtrQAAAAAAAAAAAANAAcxNDkRUMlE4SlMyNUdaSlk3VE5SRzZaTjkyQUdaNS4u Free from spelling mistakes. Thanks.

  12. Using my link above? Have put them both into bing, nothing comes up.
  13. 100% for China I reckon, probably for every other country as well in regards to China. But it goes both ways, how many countries has America tried to interfere with? It's just politics. They all do it to some extent. The difference now is the ability to use social media/fake news to reach a much bigger audience and have a much bigger/more damaging impact. All from your own country too. Not sure about anyone in Europe though. Interference in elections isn't really there thing, especially against America.

  15. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Congenital_insensitivity_to_pain Abstract... Congenital insensitivity to pain (CIP), also known as congenital analgesia is one or more rare conditions in which a person cannot feel (and has never felt) physical pain.... Because feeling physical pain is vital for survival, CIP is an extremely dangerous condition. It is common for people with the condition to die in childhood due to injuries or illnesses going unnoticed. Burn injuries are among the more common injuries. Maybe conditions like this and other diseases will help us better understand the nervous system, and make it possible to turn off the pain. Although not 100% off, just 90% or something.
  16. Ok not nudity, just blatant porn. Was looking for article about Japanese nurses a while ago....Jesus Christ..
  17. Agreed (unless you have I.D), and let's get rid of all the murder videos as well, there Disgusting.
  18. Loved The Expanse, Altered Carbon was good too. The effects were much better than the storyline. Hopefully the next series will be better. Cant get enough of Narcos etc.. always with subs though, dubbing ruins it I think.
  19. I It would be boring on Mars too. I think of it like being in the middle of the Sahara desert, the excitement would wear off pretty quick for me. Unless it was near Hydrothermal vents. That would be exciting. I don't think watching 185 mph (300km/h) winds go around a whole planet would be monotonous, think of the view, I could watch it all day. Above is an idea by NASA, - HAVOC airship. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_Altitude_Venus_Operational_Concept Some lander ideas for Venus. There are also some advantages to colonising Venus. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colonization_of_Venus
  20. http://asteronx.com/warpcalc.html warp calculator from Asteron X. Also got black hole engines and energy shield videos, and more.
  21. That's very confusing. How can you teleport the state and not the particle, is that even teleportation? Are they using hyperbole to make it sound more exciting?
