Nice! Not sure how to approve your comment but word... what are you doing with your degree these days. More what I was getting as was outfitters who modify the code to make the duration last longer. I’m not a materials science guy, so I wouldn’t know, lol. Read more

Also Burn notice is like the really cute girl in your college class who sits down across from you the whole semester, and then when she talks to you, you realize she’s a complete dumbass. I don’t know. I hate pretty-dumb shows. We need more Wire and True Detective. Blacklist is fun, but the episodes feel more and more Read more

PS an Oppo user gave me the nickname after I bothered to calculate stuff on vaporization points for rubber on some dumb post like 5 years ago LOL

Nice, thanks! I don’t know much about firearms physics so that’s cool/good to know. I did an explosives class with FEMA as part of our FD’s training and for the life of me can’t remember them explicitly stating even a range for that scenario. It was mostly ignition points for liquid fuels and fertilizer bombs... Read more

I drink coffee at 198º, but I couldn’t help but think... how long is this going for? Isn’t the inside of these units just endless plastic and rubber? That can’t be good. In VA/DC its super humid in the summer... even in my old Wrangler, which wasn’t exactly a closed system, cups with ice drinks in them would turn into Read more

Ya know.... I’ll have a sweet comeback for you in 4 years. I’m currently a lowly MS in Physiology with published research. I’m just too lazy to look up materials science stuff while I’m taking a break from studying from my MCAT that is in ~25 days. This is my stress relief zone. Read more

I mean. Materials science has changed. But we still make bumpers with massive crumple zones out of the same materials— for decades. I think today we’ve come up with crazy alloys and foams that’ll allow us to engineer slimmer profiles and shapes into vehicles without making them so bloated... is that what you’re Read more

As polarizing as this may seem, I think the JL release was barely an improvement over the JK. It’s mostly cosmetic, aero, convenience, and electronic. I don’t blame the engineering working with a rabid fanbase (including myself) but it’s not too late. From my uneducated guess, it almost seems as if they opened up the Read more
