  1. http://www.popsci.com/science/article/2012-02/boy-who-played-fusion "...Kenneth [Taylor's father] feels the weight coming down on him again. What he doesn’t understand just yet is that he will come to look back on these days as the uncomplicated ones, when his scary-smart son was into simple things, like rocket science..." Worth a read, I think, pretty crazy, too many areas worth citing. -That is, if it isn't already covered somewhere around here and a fair bit of semi-interesting conversation follows in comments.

    The bulk of your issues here would seem to point you in the direction of finding yourself a narrowed assortment of reliable engineering forums, there are many. Make yourself at home in a couple of those and they'll help you toward decent, *relevant* freeware. Looking at that sorta thing might at least tamp down some of the energy, while putting it to use getting a little ahead.--Meaning, you'd mentioned reverse engineering, and so you're obviously already on the right path.
  3. Bet the one on the right is Rayleigh. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rayleigh_scattering Unfinished crosswords drive me *crazy.* ~Also, what if the one at left is diffusion, what of its connecting partner then, can you think of anything other than VCSEL?
  4. hahA, I puzzled at that one myself some weeks back, particularly annoying.

    Watched that yesterday~so cool!
  6. Well, I, for one, am rooting for your having the emerald valentine gem of a boyfriend but all sorts of pranks go on in dorms, many of them even handed down, specific to the history of a particular dorm. google 'dorm pranks'-haha http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/college-life/233254-dorm-pranks.html -This link even illustrates photo pranking... Perhaps the ole picture slipped under the door in an envelope-for mysterious posterity, that being unnecessary:)-is a favorite of your dorm? Some of the favorite prankings of all time are played out on the girl who doesn't know anyone in the dorm yet at that, I wouldn't be too taken in by it. But you did question the boyfriend, why was that? kidding However, green isn't your favorite color or anything, is it? And the Einstein quote smacks of the twoendedness in the one on your desktop, are you an Einstein fan, particularly or had that quote been a random one day appreciation of yours? Any wooded, natural area near the dorm whatsover?lol This place looks like regardless what they come up with for you, it should prove an entertainment; if you do try it out on them, you'll let us know, won't you? http://www.killerstartups.com/Video-Music-Photo/idthis-org-recognize-any-image-you-can-imagine
  7. Ah, here it is, yeah, that's a shadowdude taking a picture. Batmandude:D, actually, not Superman, you're kidding me, right?-The shadow to left, vertically is of a thin popple tree or the like, in front of a larger oak and nearby some vinery, bramble. It's a beautiful light refracting emerald crystal sapphire ( known to create it's own play with water surface tension ) strung from a thin gauge hemp twine and hung over a hematite rich type water source known to the sapphire ( and known to have its own characteristic surface film ) and using a pole, as suggested here... http://arch.ced.berkeley.edu/hiddenecologies/?p=246
  8. No shortage of theories, especially in an information era, a digital age and, while that does throw some more interest on the scene, it certainly does clog the arteries of the verifiable to a fault. Of course, people spend every effort to fortify whatever they're pushing, and not just in the interest of foulplay/'idle hands' but well meaning, misled curiosity. It does make the wading through it all to get to the actual value a bit of a trudge but no way around it, only shortcuts in being, well, reserved. You did reserve judgment, you brought it here in curious question, so you're on the right path. There are any number of translators, Google Translate is decent, if I remember,correctly, though I did have some trouble last time I used it. There's a site translating tool as well, probably many, but I can't recall a name, searching that oughta do it well enough though. Uh..and apparently I had pleasure of timing in meeting with the bottom of this thread exactly with our heady friend, Illul, here, lol. P.S, abskee Meant to suggest you go have a good long look here in the Speculations and Rational skepticisms forums, having a look around the trash bin couldn't hurt either. I mean it will familiarize you with just how difficult it is to manage through all that trudging I mentioned.
  9. Ohboy, sounds like everybody's dream. ~
  10. This one's neat, if you wait a sec...well, you, actually about 30 of them, if you'd like to kick it ahead... Godzilla meets Japan, also cool, awfully grainy & old now but still worth a quick viewing ... A neat hologram demo, also old but interesting... You'll also want to scroll ahead here, it's a yawner 'til about 2:15 into it.
  11. http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&cd=1&ved=0CCEQtwIwAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3D5IP8hMl7FcQ&ei=R4ndTqrcMor10gH3wc23Bw&usg=AFQjCNEe4uC2OsIQIuAuYQuGlQlZbtdi-w This was closer to what I'd been looking to bring in, kind of exciting, a TIME.com video from this month, I think this is from a Canadian engineer just now making headlines for a new discussion in performance enhancement; attention, clarity boosting gaming..

    Actually, I was just coming back in to edit in I'd only wanted to add it in to the discussion I saw here days ago rooted in the complex reality behind what we see and what actually is, if that's alright, a tangent thread would probably be best though. And, really, it was just something I thought interesting I stumbled on en route to something else in the advancements within thought projection. But, honestly, is there a prerequisite I should have an abiding interest in an in-depth discussion on everything I post?-I couldn't readily spot that thread, iNow, but some area covered in these regarding synapse is relative, there's my big qualifier, you just happened here on it the instant I posted it.

    Ever see this?.. The 'Mindflex'-thought/concentration projection game Another similar is floating around out there, called the Mindwave.
  15. It did have some real comic potential, especially with the scenario reversed, without anything offered first in the area of physical attributes.
  16. Hi, iNow, not to make any pretense in harboring no bias of my own, but I do occasionally break for good posture;).-- I'm sure my excerpting here didn't do my intention justice, I'd only been offering a hopeful in the progression of an arduous debate. But here, another break?--'the corpse is twitching'... http://www.crikey.com.au/2011/11/30/durban-talks-kyoto-protocol-alive/ Canada's anti-Kyoto stance angers China-- http://www.montrealgazette.com/touch/story.html?id=5792370
  17. Carbon paper and a manual typewriter, yes, does that ever hit home. I liked carbon paper:(, you could use it to trace stuff. You're right, I often think of that, the issue of an inclination toward privacy at all when I see this upcoming generation plaster seemingly everything about their emotional wellbeing--or not-- on facebook, for example. How strange even so many adults would give explicit, everyday account of their familial upheavals there. Yeah, targeted advertising is a thing of many years back now, to my knowledge, some of it intrusively, questionably so imo. That's my thinking, yes, not funny, but, rather, sad, people should have greater difficulty in the approach sitting across from each other on a subway than in a forum online. But there again, everything may lie in the subjective of the generational gap and upbringing. Still, I tend to reserve my bias comfort, ease in the up close and personal--real time contact--always trumps whatever so called progress may bring, we're talking about human contact, connection, interaction and everything that is either good or bad bred therein. I can't help, then, but find it at its finest in its purest form; face to face, a beautiful thing.--I like chess, face to face, it's twice as good. I've played a lot of cards in my day, it can't be compared to in cyberspace, I'm sorry, just the way it is. And there you have it.
  18. No, Appolinaria, that's not it.;)

  19. K, thanks, *lol*

  20. Yeah, people do tend to want to take down widely accepted rules proven out over too great a spanse, funny, I kinda smirked just a little myself, like the poster who came in going after gravity itself. But, though I can grasp the 5sigma issue, the rest is heady so I wondered what first impression I'd grab from it out of here. Still, you never know what adjacent tangents might surface of these things is my curiosity, not honestly that anything would likely be turned on its head, *haha*.
  21. Apparently, here, http://hcp2011.lpnhe.in2p3.fr/ , at the Hadron Collider Physics meeting in France, the LHC "antimatter anomaly [suggests] new physics " *********** http://www.newscientist.com/mobile/article/mg21228404.200 "The Large Hadron Collider has turned up differences in how particles of matter and antimatter decay that the reigning standard model of physics may not be able to explain... WE ARE here thanks to a curious imbalance in the universe. To the best of our knowledge, the universe began with equal, or nearly equal, amounts of matter and antimatter. Because these particles annihilate on contact, they should have destroyed each other long ago in a blaze of radiation, leaving little if anything behind to form stars, planets and people. Clearly, that didn't happen. The hunt for the special something that might have skewed the universe in favour of matter occupies the best minds in physics. Compelling signs of such lopsided physics have emerged at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN near Geneva in Switzerland. It is the first sign of new physics at the LHC and could provide a boost for the theory of supersymmetry, which adds a zoo of new particles to the ones we already know. "We are getting excited," says Yuval Grossman of Cornell University in Ithaca, New York..." ~Here's an area I definitely son't care to paraphrase.)-- So whatta you think at face value here, as significant possibly, as it first suggests or maybe leaning more toward the same ol' same ol' in inconclusives?.. Today was a good day for newsfinds.

    Funny, favorite topic of mine, plus I was just going to post big dog, myself. I never got over that thing, it's freaky, in this video, 'he' compensates for it if you kick him! http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=5349770802105160028 That video still creeps me out, lol. I have another crazy one, waaitforit...well, if I can find it... Here it is, you ready??. Amphibeous snakebot-- ok, some of you have probably already seen it but don't spoil it for me. http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=139523333240485714 Whoa, PETMAN is crazy! Last one, check her out... http://www.trendhunter.com/trends/rent-a-robot-actroid-der2-fembot-3500-for-5-days Hey, mich, those were cool posts, fun playing bots, good post.--Tomorrow I'll try to find the miniscule fly I saw a long time ago, so neat!
