Show more < I will never forget this site where a guy made 29134461 different kinds of ionocraft for like, ten years in hopes of making one human-sized before just totally vanishing sometime in the early 2010's.

The conspiracy theory forums think he was murdered (or hired) by NASA because uuuuhhhhh secret government electrodynamics free energy. Also he flew a hamster the one time.

He's definitely a conspiracy theorist dingus but also someone who is basically the best publicly available authority on what makes good in-atmosphere ion propulsion.

i just had to say that a painting of a bicycle on a street was an actual bicycle to confirm that i was human. so, i will never get in a self-driving car

Last night in Texas, flying out tomorrow evening: it went very well! We learnt a ton about things we didn't even know we didn't know

Now we just have to uh, set up a cluster, write modules, build codes and benchmark them properly in the next five months

Also university


1) I now have to deal with knowing that Hot Topic is real and will continue to exist at all times

2) I went to a Fry's and I can see why like 40% of my American friends have worked there at least once

3) non-busted used stuff in the USA seems much easier to come by.

@kalium going to Hot Topic was much more whelming, I think. One of my friends is probably gonna suffer from Teen Goth Withdrawal when we head back home, she was pretty enraptured by the place.

My Gamer Friends went to see a GameStop and were underwhelmed. I got a cheap controller out of it though so who can say who benefited most from this.

This has to a record. Found on facebook, this appears to be the result of:

1) I post a comic to the Internet
2) Comic gets redrawn and re-fonted
3) Comic gets turned into a t-shirt
4) Picture is taken of said t-shirt
5) Picture is posted back to Internet

Holy shit, Facebook is paying teenagers to install a root certificate on their phones so they can snoop on all of their internet traffic

Not a joke, this is actually a thing which is happening right now
