fuck you mother fucker
WOW! What a great and ingenious idea! Thanks!
I'm not being a facetious smart-ass either; I'm totally serious. Like you said, what a great way to self-insure, especially when doing a dangerous job. Because you know the tightwad insurance adjusters never believe anyone's claims.
I have to admit, I was only looking at those guys as a couple idiots.
Thanks for the info. I have 2 video cameras and NEVER would have thought to videotape myself working around the house doing dangerous home re More..pairs, roof repairs, tree trimming, etc. In fact, I was trimming trees today and had one whack me in the back pretty good. Nothing serious....but if it had been, my insurance company probably would have strung me along and jacked me around.
Thanks for the info!!! Goes to show you....things are not always as they seem.
Quoted comment by Hectortuba: i dont want to sound like a conspiracy nut or anything, but I find it hard to believe that all these waves we put in the air can not be harmless to our health. Im sure hundreds of years from now Cellphones will be found as dangerous for us as lead water pipes were for Romans.
"We have better resources and a far better understanding of materials than the Romans.
As for a sample set, the over 2.5 billion people currently using cell phones would More.. definitely produce a large number of side-effect cases if they were, in fact, significant. The very few that do show some reaction are more likely due to an unrelated cause, such as special skin sensitivities.
It's time people got a sense of perspective and recognize these viewer-pulling panic features for what they are."
I found this and thought it funny, thought you should know,
And now, a new use for sticky tape... X-rays
Wed Oct 22, 1:47 pm ET
PARIS (AFP) %u2013 Scotch tape is not only see-through, it can also see through, for the product can be used to take X-rays, bemused scientists say.
Peeling tape from a roll of Scotch releases tiny bursts of X-rays that are powerful enough to take images of bones in fingers and hands, researchers have found.
The unusual discovery was made by a University of California at Los Angeles team, intrigued after hearing that Soviet scientists in the 1950s found that sticky tape, when separated at the right speed, released pulses in the X-ray part of the energy spectrum.
Reporting in Thursday's issue of the British-based science journal Nature, the investigators used a motorised peeling machine to unwind a standard roll (25.4 metres in length by 19 mm) of Photo Safe 3M Scotch tape at a speed of three centimetres (1.18 inches) a second.
By placing the machine in a vacuum, they were able to measure X-rays that were enough to take images.
"We didn't believe it. We really didn't think it could be true," co-author Carlos Camara told AFP in a phone interview, referring to the team's initial skepticism.
"We took some pictures of our hands to see the bones and prove that it was possible. We have a whole collection (of pictures)... it is absolutely remarkable."
As to precisely why this phenomenon occurs, Camara admits: "That is a mystery."
The core theory is something called "triboluminescence," which occurs when two contacting surfaces move relative to each other.
As the tape peels, the sticky acrylic adhesive, on the back of the tape, becomes positively charged, while the polyethylene roll becomes negatively charged, according to this hypothesis.
At a reduced atmospheric pressure, the mechanical act of pulling apart the two surfaces causes electric fields to build up that then trigger discharges of energy.
This accelerates electrons on the adhesive to very high speeds and when they whack into the positively-charged tape roll, X-rays result. The pulses last for a billionth of a second, with an intensity of 100 milliwatts.
"It is a discharge process," said Camara. "It is not clear exactly what mechanism is taking place, but electrons are plainly flying from one side to the other at very high speed and when they hit the other side and they stop, X-rays are emitted.
He added that there could one day be a useful outlet to the discovery -- X-ray machines that would be cheaper and safer than conventional machines that require a permanent radioactive source and a highly trained technician for maintenance.
"There's lots of room for improvement" from the basic discovery, said Camara.
"Just peeling tape is the quickest, cheapest way to provide X-rays... It's X-rays for everyone." Less..
I once took effexor that the doc gave me, I was younger, noone told me about the side effects, no one told me to go to periodic checkups and followups. I took it for 6 months and then ran out, quit cold turkey. Learned a lot about what happens when your seratonin levels are manipulated and then severely and abruptly deprived. I became so suicidal that I almost did it.
I went to a different doc and he looked at me like I was lucky to be alive, so i took the weening process and got off of it. More.. I can take any of that stuff, I tried zoloft for about 1 week and I thought I was going to die from lack of sleep.
I know meds work with the right doctor and prescription and it is also up to the individual to follow thorough instructions. However, I really found that counseling is the best medicine. I connected with so many people during my volunteering that some would call back when they figured out my schedule (which they are not supposed to do, and we have to gracefully handle the situation if it comes to that). I have had people call back and thank me for the time, it really was rewarding, it was also really intense too.
When you have someone who just cut their wrists or swallowed a bunch of pills and they won't tell you where they are. It takes a strong person not to panic. I even had the cops call me for help. Less..
"The alternative theory that a world-wide cabal of commercial interests generated masses of scientific data required to convince the huge majority of the world's climate scientists that the earth is undergoing global climate change for the sole purpose of economic benefit and political control is the epitome of modern stupidity."
Exactly. It's hard to keep any conspiracy involving more than one person hidden. A lot harder if 2 or more people are involved. And almost impossible if More.. it's a larger group of people.
The people on Liveleak waging the "it's a worldwide conspiracy to defraud taxpayers" are the same people accusing others, here, of "wearing tinfoil hats".
kind of like the racists here that complain about racism
bottom line: Environmental scientists don't give a fuck about republicans or democrats. or americans vs. any other country's opinion. they just do their jobs and love what they do -- pursue the truth using facts and experiments. maintaining a skepticism of truths already established. that's the beauty of science. Less..
i'm impressed with you. not because you backed me up, in that thread, but because of the way you articulated yourself:
WEEDBENDER quoted me and said this: "Must be nice watching something you have clung onto the last few years crumble before your eyes. Yea I know it was hip to go green and all that bullshit but facts are facts. Have you also reserched the other scientist who denounce the global warming deal or how it could be caused by sun spots.
You should really reseach things before yo More..u fall head over heals on the latest greatest things. Otherwise your just another sheep to be used."
You quoted them and said: "Wow, just wow...
I'll ignore the multiple grade school spelling mistakes and just say that everything you have just accused Las of applies to yourself more than you can possibly imagine.
You are the sheep. You are the one who is so enamoured of your bullshit conspiracy theory that you refuse to believe anything that contradicts it. You are unable to see reality because you just don't understand the science.
You are not the true free thinker. You aren't the ones who apply true scientific method and ask the questions: "What are the possible causes of the real effects we are seeing?" "What proof exists that each alternatives is valid?"
and most importantly:
"What proof exists that each alternative explanation is NOT valid?"
This last question is the concept of falsifiability. To be truly science a theory must have the ability to be proven false. Global Climate Change would be shown to be false if the real proof existed. That proof simply does not exist.
The alternative theory that a world-wide cabal of commercial interests generated masses of scientific data required to convince the huge majority of the world's climate scientists that the earth is undergoing global climate change for the sole purpose of economic benefit and political control is the epitome of modern stupidity.
Face the facts: You don't understand science, especially climate science. You don't understand politics, you don't understand economics, you don't understand international relations. You understand NOTHING. You support inane conspiracy theories because they feel good to you and make you think you're important. Too bad you're incapable of seeing how ridiculous those beliefs are." Less..
Hey m8, i just wanted to show my appreciation for the comment you left, the one Las already quoted 2 posts below, the answer to Weedbender.
As i said in the thread, if its ok with you i'll copy paste that as answer to any "global warming expert" i meet in the future on LL =)
are you saying he wasnt a newt? WITCH! BURN YOU! BUUURN! lol. classic movie.
LOL @ ur The American insurgent! I have to tell ya man, I crack up everytime I see ur avatar....OUCH! Ur hurting my ribs!
Thanks for the Pininfarina tips mate. Take good care.
i'm a tall canadian expatriate to the US. hopefully the Japanese girls can wait a while until I actually get there and ride the subway in some kind of disinfectant suit (that allows sensation, of course).
Sounds like you've been there. I haven't. Wife was there for work, but travelled everywhere by car, which we now know is extravagant.
happy new year.
