  1. After 500 posts something had to give...
  2. You're telling me that you accidentally wrote a paper about masturbation in high school? Right...

    The Truman Show

    First of all, it is important to note that corporations are irrelevant to this discussion. This seems like an excuse to try to point out how evil they are when the discussion should be about the ethics behind the actions themselves rather than the body committing the actions. Secondly, in the US a corporation is legally considered to be a person and has most of the same rights.
  4. I think you both misunderstood me. You're probably right, it was inappropriate, but it was more poking fun at Icheb than you. It would seem my humor is too subtle and not very funny.
  5. I'm curious how you got to this conclusion. Did you travel forward in time or something? Because nowhere did he say "is it possible with current technology".

    Why would that matter...? I would say yes, it is racist, but also very funny
  7. It's not our technology that is at fault it's the idea of a lightsaber. If you detach the theory from the name then it's simply a name and I could call my dog “lightsaber” and say that it is now possible.
  8. The ferrofluid would have much more friction.
  9. Sounds like he's thinking of urine ricochet.
  10. That indeed would be a risk. However, an even bigger risk would be the spasming person on the floor with a detonator in his hand.
  11. Neither of these would stop a determined terrorist with a bomb. Tranquilizers take time and tasers would be extremely stupid on a person holding a weapon, such as a bomb. Surely you don't beleive that the sky marshalls havn't thought of this and yet you have?
  12. Did you move to St. Louis?
  13. The claim that the Asian version of Newsweek on Feb. 2, 2005 translates to "the day that America died" with the background of a broken flag in a trash can. It seems too outrageous and disgusting for me to believe outright and it is rather hard to find a reliable source so I thought it might be a photoshopped hoax. I think I will be canceling my subscription, regardless of whether this specific event is a hoax because of some of Newsweek's other recent incidents.
  14. http://ridingsun.blogspot.com/2005/05/newsweek-america-is-dead.html http://www.townhall.com/opinion/columns/larryelder/2005/06/02/15609.html Does anybody know if these claims are true?
  15. How many people do you think Hitler killed with his own hands?
  16. The joke is on you. It has always been your mom... on my pogo stick.
  17. Resistors in parallel lower the overall resistance. Putting outputs in parallel will not increase the available current because all outputs are coming from the same transformer and all outputs of the same voltage are coming from the same winding. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Series_and_parallel_circuits
  18. A ten ohm resistor in series with a 5V source will limit the current to 0.5A. If you wanted a higher current you could just use a lower resistance. Resistors are a very crude way of limiting current however. You would be much better off using a voltage regulator to regulate the current.
  19. Then you don't need to worry about the current either as the current is directly proportional to the voltage and resistance. I personally think the results in a 2V cell are pretty ridicules and really only useful in theoretical chemistry demonstrations. Whatever floats your boat I guess.
  20. Buy a computer psu from ebay. Look for a high current on the 12V line.
