I just watched a great documentary on the Everglades called “The Swamp” the other day. It’s streaming for those who don’t watch PBS as an insomnia cure late at night. From the film web page snippet:
This is only “scary” to people who don’t understand how guns actually work and think there’s any real world viable threat here. The only way you can possibly think there’s anything to be concerned about here is if you understand nothing about the physics of containing an explosion to a hand-held instrument.
You can 3d print something to look like whatever you want, but you can’t make it function. A 3D printed Glock 17 would explode on the first attempt to fire it.
My guess is that this is all a bit of political theatre.
Third time revising this.
Fella, if you think Alphabet wouldn’t cut your eyeballs right out of your head and sell them in Dubai for the price of a Toyota Corolla Hatchback, don’t blink.
Mobil 1 marketing guy: “See? I told you putting our sponsorship on the wing was a good idea!”
I see Tesla fans are just as mentally unstable as Apple fans.
This will happen. Also at the same time, it won’t. Probably.
also why landing planes is both easy and hard. Get close to the ground and lift spikes. Easier to land slowly, but plenty of planes end up in the ditch because they float 1/2 the runway in ground effect and then don’t have enough stopping distance.
It’s widely used actually.
I hate [these auto manufacturers] more than anybody I know for clogging the streets and turning a blind eye to the behavior of their drivers [who directly kill 37,000 and injure 1.2 million people per year in crashes and contribute to global warming to boot].
“What are we gonna call our next console?”
Exactly. The article is written as if this is a stupid product to even release unless you can guarantee 4k 60 fps for coal miners living in small villages in northern Montana. A) Those folks aren’t playing video games, and B) if you can’t reach them so what? Does Alex really think Google spent the money developing…
“The good news is that ISP have a long history of adjusting to the growing demands from users.”
yeah now people just use thousand dollar phones. same status symbol bullshit. my 35$ timex works just as well.
I would disagree, on some level. I have a lot of watches, and I’ve loved wearing watches since I was a kid. I love the look, and I love the mechanics. I would seek out a high priced watch, if I were so inclined, not so I could impress you, but so I could impress myself.
Thought 1: Sure looks effective when it’s against an inflatable car.
Yeah, this is what I reacted to as well. Outside of scientific equipment, which won't be a Rolex watch, there is nothing in my life that needs a watch to be so accurate that it makes sense to spend $1000-10000 on it. Even if I have to set my watch monthly to keep it within a minute of accuracy, that won't be worth…
That is very much what nearly killed the swiss watch industry post WWII. A decent cheap quartz movement with a battery will keep far more accurate time. And digital watches even more so. Once Japan started shipping cheaply made but high quality quartz movements after the war. The justification for expensive hand made…
