DJI drones are ridiculously easy to fly. I don’t think you’ll find an easier to fly drone from any other manufacturer. I’ve got the DJI Mavic Pro (original version) and I had the DJI FPV drone until I got careless and the ocean ate it. They’re both great and super fun to fly. The Mavic line has the better cameras, but… Read more
Someone in the comments here or maybe Gizmodo suggested using uBlock Origins to make the Gawker Media sites usable. I can confirm that the ridiculous and awful ad problems here are gone after installing it. I suppose I feel a bit bad that I get the benefit of the content without helping their revenue, but not bad… Read more
I’d love to know why someone decided to name a concept car after mythical Hawaiian creatures that supposedly build cairns out of lava rocks. They’re kind of like the Hawaiian equivalent of leprechauns.
I can’t stand when people choose to massively slow down BEFORE getting into a turn lane when exiting the highway. The turn lanes are there so that fuckfaced idiots don’t HAVE to slow down the highway when exiting.
I guess if you have to ask...
But seriously, I scanned the article again after reading it to see if I’d somehow missed that rather important detail. I also didn’t see anything in the way of specs other than 0-60 and other tidbits of trivia.
Scientists would probably be best off not allowing themselves to feel terror over the outcome of any experiment.
Sitting atop a rocket that could catastrophically explode would be a reasonable source of terror for an astronaut or their loved ones.
“Seven minutes of terror” is just a stupid phrase. It’s like using the… Read more
Not sure how you came to that conclusion. It’s simply untrue. Maybe take another look at some porn.
You’d be lucky to get the chance.
Terror over a science experiment failing is stupid. Falsely equating my opinion of the matter to something as permanent as death is equally stupid.
It’s awesome that you’re personally involved, I’m jealous. I still think feeling terror over the possibility of failure is stupid. I get anxiety and extreme stress but not terror. “Seven minutes of terror” is a stupid phrase. No lives will be lost, no insurmountable obstacles will be created.
If you’re a programmer that causes a $2.7 billion crater then maybe you shouldn’t be a programmer. People lose jobs all of the time from incompetence or circumstances beyond their control. Being terrified over the most complicated science project NASA has attempted seems juvenile. In science, failure is always a… Read more
Fair point. I do expect they’d have some anxiety. Terror though? It’s not a do or die situation. Lessons will be learned no matter the outcome. That’s what science is.
I don’t know what you mean by that. Terror is an emotion that people experience when they fear for their lives or safety. There is real terror in the world as anyone not living under a rock knows. The upcoming Mars rover descent shouldn’t be inspiring terror in anyone. To repeat the stupid “seven minutes of terror”… Read more
I wish the term “seven minutes of terror” would die already. Terror is a real thing experienced by real people and rover descents hardly qualify. Exciting, yes. Nerve-wracking, no doubt. Terror, not even close. When people are landing on Mars there may be some well deserved and appropriately called terror.
That said,… Read more
It’s not sandpaper. Not even close. “magic eraser” is melamine foam. If you keep it wet and make sure no grit is on the glass, magic sponge will clean glass very well without streaks or scratches.
Rubbing alcohol is isopropyl alcohol and water, no glycerin or glycerol (same thing). Pre-covid I could buy 99% isopropyl at my local supermarket (Fred Meyer aka Kroger).
Considering he’s rocking a Hitler mustache in the photos of his arrest it seems pretty clear who he idolizes...
I know it’s a one of one, but my god those panel gaps are just awful. Cool looking car though. Glad it got put back to its original condition.
