You talk as if "the grid" was designed by one overseer. It wasnt. A electrical power network is very haphazardly produced as demanded. Government interference by replacing consistent, reliable inconsistent, unreliable power sources will be an overall detriment. Supplementing with wind and solar isnt bad but replacing… » 2/24/15 7:10pm Tuesday 7:10pm

You cant just jump to stay stationary on a tredmill. Lets examine from starting stationary in the air falling to the ground. When you land you are in contact with the treadmill for some definite amount of time before you jump into the air; Thus the treadmill will impart some amount of backwards force on you.… » 2/18/15 8:30am 2/18/15 8:30am

VSauce gets it wrong; The thing is, neutronium can only exist in a neutron star; It takes a LOT of gravity to compact matter that dense. Any small amount of neutronium outside of a neutron star wouldn't have enough gravity to keep it compacted, and would immediately explode. It would be a very, very, very big… » 3/21/14 4:21pm 3/21/14 4:21pm

It has to do with intent behind those figures; It's really the same thing with characters in video games: A half naked muscular male character represents what male players want to be (and what male industry leaders want them to want) and a half naked female character represents not what female players want to be, but… » 3/07/14 9:08pm 3/07/14 9:08pm

Typically, inefficiency with electronics means a lot of power is lost in the machine as useless heat. But that's exactly what a dryer is meant to do: generate heat. Saying a dryer is inefficient is missing the point of what a dryer is supposed to do. » 3/05/14 1:05pm 3/05/14 1:05pm

Once a Spellcaster gets 3rd level spells, they start becoming THE party member, if played to their fullest (which many players don't know how to do, because they never play spellcasters, assuming their squishiness is something that can't be avoided, which it can, because spells) » 1/21/14 4:52am 1/21/14 4:52am

So I take it the gamma ray laser is needed to push a target mass over the swartzschild limit? If so, how much fine tuning would that require? If you need 2 empire state building masses, how much of that is target mass/energy and how much of that is laser energy? It would seem that most of it would be laser energy… » 1/20/14 5:50pm 1/20/14 5:50pm

And that's what you get for just sticking your kid with a toy and leaving them alone. You have to actually parent your child, and involve yourself in their lives all along their life. If you let the toys do the parenting, your kids will grow up to be like the ones in this comic. » 1/13/14 7:23pm 1/13/14 7:23pm

This is poor science education at it's worst. Evolution is scientific fact, but is separate from the origin of life hypothesis. You can know that DNA changes from generation to generation, but that doesn't mean you can't be religious and not accept the origin of life hypothesis. » 12/31/13 11:17am 12/31/13 11:17am
