  1. I'm not going to quote a random statistic here, but just realise how often you breathe in and out of your nose (the nose, of course, providing a pathway that is that much closer to the blood-brain barrier.) I am not an expert in material sciences, but trusting a YouTube "internet fame" video is a horribly bad idea. Trusting a stranger on a forum is also a horribly bad idea; but the general warnings being pushed at you should be taken over a fool who cares more about views than consumer safety. Do your research, talk to people who have done this before; even how you haven't secured your smelter
  2. Honestly, I think "Distro" seems highly overrated as there is often a far greater difference between OSX, Windows, and "Various Desktop Managers" than there is between the distros. I make this complaint often, but while I have setup and occasionally use an Arch-LDE environment (I tend to prefer it for working than playing though); I think Archers intentionally try to make their setup seem like a nightmare while the majority of it can easily be turned into a bash script. In fact, it quite surprised me how the "No GUI Arch Setup" was blatantly identical to the "GUI Setup" for any given OS instal
  3. Granted. It is impossible for you to drink vinegar as if it were water and eat spice as if it were candy... unfortunately most candy is actually various spices which means you've also killed off our most successful industry. I wish WinkAllKerb' would stop pretending to be ignorant.
  4. I get a moderator to lock this thread and clean it out... all posts before this one are now null and void. MY HILL!
  5. I'm not clicking strange links on forums! Who knows what scars you're trying to leave on me. Press the button to receive a one way ticket to pluto... without the means of survival.
  6. And And Ear Ion Ion And Utilize And EASY (is more fun)
  7. Granted. Unfortunately x86-64 is revealed to be a dirt awful piece of junk and we continue on to x86-96 which is 64 bit being completely redesigned for how people program rather than what is easiest to make assembly for. Due to the design, x86-96 is not backwards compatible with x86-64 but is fully compatible with x86 and earlier; but the speed boost offered is so extreme that people willingly give up their old processors for the new architecture. I wish that new horizons would be renamed voyager 6, to bring about my star trek fantasies.
  8. They're looking for signs of artificial electromagnetic radiation, which is much different from "a signal." Whether we intend to or not, we are leaking EM Radiation like crazy into space. Of course, the signal strength decays rapidly the further out you go and becomes comparatively small over background noise, and the chances of finding such radiation go down very rapidly... But don't mock something you simply don't understand. A pluto flyby is useless because it "doesn't directly help us," or going to the moon is useless because "the money is better spent here on earth." IF they discover life
  9. The definition of life is simple: "Any definition that indicates humans are alive and suits our current moral stance, whatever it may be." I think it would be most interesting if creatures of "living fire" came to visit us, and declared we were not alive because we didn't follow their rules of life. What might the conversation be like, as both sides explain the other's existence is impossible? Remember, what we know about the universe, on matter, on life, is enough to fill one whole paragraph in a 32 volume encyclopaedia set on the universe. We are ignorant of what is possible outside our shel
  10. I think you're not getting that all the "data" leading up to the intercept was just NASA playing with their toy (okay, testing systems and verifying things are working). All of that data was erased for the flyby where they pushed the sensors into overdrive and filled it up to the brim. NASA didn't give a crap about the photos they've been feeding us, the real interest are the shots we haven't seen yet, the gigabytes of information they collected during the brief moments when the flyby occurred.
  11. This, this 100x over. This 1000x over. The younger generation does not know more about computers. This fabrication is completely untrue and often the reverse. The younger generation couldn't setup a LPT printer without the help of Google. They're all about "download a program to do it for me" rather than actually knowing ANYTHING about how computers work. And then, when they memorize a few simple command line tricks, they think it is a substitute for actual knowledge and experience. No, if the younger generation had even a quarter of the intellect we associated with them then iOS, which is des
  12. Yet people would easily argue that KSP without a community and especially mods would die in 30 seconds. Revenue is a "magical" thing that you really have to be working with the financials of the company to know where it comes from. I got really pissy before as I was remembering what I hate about all of these protests (and the people usually behind them) but the gist is that when you protest in a way that doesn't hurt you while only hurting someone else, your protest is meaningless. DDoS attacks are thought of as "costs of doing business" these days... just like "piracy boycotting" as a fight a
  13. So does HACKING Reddit and destroying the server. We should hack reddit, DDoS it, and release information about the CEO's kids and strongly imply someone should kidnap them (like anonymous does). Retroactive "this is why we're doing this" doesn't change that this is still not a protest but a pissing match, it only adds in the elitest "join our movement, we can bring down Reddit, download LOIC now!!!" nonsense that people who claim internet protests work does.
