      What a tragic loss for the US government.. How will they manage without Swansont?


      Secrets stay secret

      Oh no ! 
      Now we gotta put up with you full-time ?

      Maybe not, @MigL. He must have a lot of geo-caching up to do.

  3. I got a major award today (plaque, not a sexy leg-lamp) for my "staunch defense of USNO's interests" in a project I'm working on

      Congratulations! I wish there were more inclusive leg lamp awards.

      Excellent! It may not be necessary but it is certainly very gratifying when your achievements are recognized. Congratulations!

      Congratulations. Though a somewhat hairy, plausibly sexy to some (or likely not), leg lamp based on one of my own legs would no doubt have saved you any equality issues.

      ...but I'm sure the plaque displays well also and is no doubt well deserved

  4. You've only asked about nuclear fusion, and nobody around here works on a fusion reactor. It's not so much a matter of asking the question better, it's about the available knowledge.

  5. You were the instigator, which is why you were called out. If you don't see why your posts were objectionable, your stay here will be short.

  6. We're a science site, so a media studies question isn't likely to generate much in the way of informed discussion. You can ask, though. I don't think there's a problem with that.

  7. You can use the search function to find older posts, and start new threads in the appropriate forum.

  8. If you didn't see insults from pykawit, you didn't look very closely. His insistence that everyone who challenged him was stupid and incompetent was inappropriate. He was continually apologizing for his rudeness, but the point is not to be rude in the first place. There were too many complaints about it to let it slide any further. And that's not the only reason he was banned.

  9. Congrats on your impending promotion!
