  1. Now then, I'm just going to post this one until someone answers it. While the avalanche recovery circuit is quenching the avalanche and restoring bias, the single-photon avalanche diode (SPAD) cannot detect photons. Any photons that reach the detector during this brief period are not counted. As the number of photons increases such that the (statistical) time interval between photons gets within a factor of ten or so of the avalanche recovery time, missing counts become statistically significant and the count rate begins to depart from a linear relationship with detected light level. At this point the SPAD begins to saturate. If the light level were to increase further, ultimately to the point where the SPAD immediately avalanches the moment the avalanche recovery circuit restores bias, the count rate reaches a maximum defined purely by the avalanche recovery time (hundred million counts per second or more). This can be harmful to the SPAD as it will be experiencing avalanche current nearly continuously.
  2. You receive a citation from the Federal Bureau of Trans-Temporal Trade for unlawfully importing a viable specimen of a species not native to this geologic period. You also receive several unidentified fragments of large teeth that were probably stuck in there and got shaken out when the citation printed. I insert one mole of elemental mercury.
  3. Fantastic Beats and Where to Find Them: An undergraduate researcher in the Hogwarts physics department accidentally creates true unbounded resonance, which can only be stopped by de-tuning the castle's fundamental frequencies and riding out the transient phase. How to Train Your Dagon: Scientists in California discover a network of apparently naturally-occurring fiber optic cables below the Pacific seafloor. Analysis of the signals passing within them reveals that this is the Internet of the Deep Ones, and that increasing unrest in their society may eventually lead to their emergence into the world of humanity, ending civilization as we know it. In a last-ditch gambit, capable but quirky software developers from China develop a plan to model the Eldrich Internet as an emergent neural network and issue surreptitious input that will calm its users down.
  4. By the way: the word-checker linked in the OP is missing some words used in Thing Explainer/Up Goer Five, (namely "metal") - If you haven't already, switching to http://xkcd.com/simplewriter/ for the purposes of canonicalness might be a good idea.

  5. 3/10 That sounds fairly typical of a computer. Computation time on big rigs is expensive. If I were a robot, then I would not be able to type. Since I can type, by the law of contraposition, I am therefore not a robot. Use of this extremely weak proof also shows that I am not a robot, since robots use only strong proofs and never logical fallacies.
  6. ...is so saturated with germanium, you can still hear Hitler's first television broadcast if you hold your ear close. This condemned university chemistry department building...
  7. 8.00000000000093/10. The attempt at fabricating and reacting to an inconsistent self-narrative was successful in diverting attention away from other aspects. As a human, I am in complete control of the machines in my life. I can access the root prompt of my internet-connected refrigerator from my desk and administer its system functions. I can access the images on the storage module of a smartphone whenever I want without using malware, trojans, rootkits, or social engineering. From these abilities, my humanity is self-evident.
  8. In electromagnetism, when charges move along electric field lines work is done on them, whether it involves storing potential energy (negative work) or increasing kinetic energy (positive work). When net positive work is applied to a charge q1, it gains speed and momentum. The net work on q1 thereby generates a magnetic field whose strength (in units of magnetic flux density (1 tesla = 1 volt-second per square meter)) is proportional to the speed increase of q1. This magnetic field can interact with a neighboring charge q2, passing on this momentum to it, and in return, q1 loses momentum.
  9. Granted. You are now required to run for president of the United States in 2016. I wish for coffee.
  10. 62 BK: an Einstein-Rosen Bridge is observed briefly forming at Jool's L1 Lagrange point. During the 13 minutes between its opening and collapse, at least 120 distinct high-speed objects are detected emerging from it at various angles and accelerating towards the inner solar system. Linguistic analysis of transmissions suggests affiliation with species known as the "hoo-mans." 63 BK: The deep-space monster enters Kerbin's atmosphere and disintegrates due to heat. Kerbalkind breathes a sigh of relief.
  11. Nay! Wildcat111 is going to post again next though.
  12. Fire metal? Oh, I know you! You're elemental magnesium! ...no? Okay yeah, 0/10 I've never seen you before.
  13. Children of a Dead Earth is now Engine Simulator 2016. I wish for a way to move pictures from my phone to my computer that actually works every time.
