    • FACT: The Fermi Paradox is proof that God has a sense of humor
      Page: 2 3
      The universe is crawling with alien life. So, is the Earth. It is just really, really small like the size of an atom. They are all over, though, I can feel them walking on me. They itch. Constantly. And they talk to me and tell me to do things. Don't they talk to you? Sometimes they tell me to do bad things. I have to do it because otherwise they make me itch. And I don't like to itch.

    • OJIBWA WAR SONGS
      No safe places to take refuge within while the warrior class protected your weak male ass from societal barbarians.

      Perhaps a military coup would result in the formation of two USA's. One where the warrior class dwells and the other where the pussy PC Hillary-loving filth exist. I wonder how long that PC USA would last before either internal or external barbarians enslaved the masses and did akin to what Stalin did with his rabble?

    • Why is career planning such a clusterfuck in the IT field?

      Top dog? :lol:

      Idiots in corporate IT have no fucking idea what a top dog is. They could be standing in front of the next Bjarne Stroustup and turn him away because he's not cheap enough. Instead they'll hire an :apu: or two. If you have fuckloads of experience and can code 10x faster than the next guy, they'll think you're lying.

      The mistake is not to be in IT. The mistake is to try to get a salaried job from a slew of dumfuks intead of striking out on your own.

    • A business enemy has died. Thinking of hiring British flatulist "Mr. Methane" to "perform" Chopin's Funeral March at his burial.
      This guy was a cunt. One of those locusts in business that goes from company to company as upper management, who never improve the computer at all but end up sucking money into their own pockets. The company that I went to he crashed all of our sales, and m9ved the office across the cointry, effectively laying off all staff. During his one-year tenure there, he managed to crash sales from 14 million a year down to 6 million, while at the same time redecorating the office for 2 million dollars and coincidentally hiring his wife as the interior decorator.

      He is done this at other companies. I don't know how people are so stupid to hire losers like this and make them rich. Mr. Methanes managersays he'll do it for $30K plus travel. What do you think? Normally I would think about sparing the family, but since the wife was involved, fuck them.

    • Trader Joe's tards. THESE ARE FUCKING DELICIOUS
      Page: 2
      New item at the local Wal-Mart. One buck per pizza so had to try it.

      http://i.imgur.com/GQvcFzZ.jpg

      Thin crust to minimize calories. Fifteen minutes in the toaster oven (only oven I got) and eat the damn thing. Not bad. Ate the whole thing. Will buy another. Not bad for a buck and fills my cavernous maw.

      For desert a couple of these... individual things inside the box, not the entire box as really fat fucks would eat:

      Send your nephew?

      So, you'd have your nephew go to jail instead of yourself? Are you that big of a coward? Or is it that you cannot travel to see The Beast because you weigh 587 pounds and are not allowed in airports?

    • Why don't they build cars like Diesel Locomotives
      Because it would make no sense to build a car like that. The overall architecture is highly inefficient - you have the large inherent losses of an IC engine combined with 2 sets of conversion losses in the generators and the motors. The only reason they build trains like that is that electric motors provide very high torque at near-zero speeds, which is what you need to get a train moving without wheel slip.

      In fact, a diesel train is a pretty shitty design overall from an efficiency point of view - you have to carry the prime mover (which is typically a 2000-3000HP diesel engine and an equally large generator) on the train and accelerate and decelerate all that mass with the rest of the train. That's why things like the Japanese Shinkansen and the Chinese CRH trains are pure electric designs - by doing that, the only moving mass is the motors and you don't have to worry so much about range/speed tradeoffs because the power source is external.

      Against that, you have to provide power down the entire line, but since those high-speed services normally run on specially prepared grade separated tracks anyway, it's not such a big deal.

      And to the guy talking about the Volt and the BWM i3 REx - they are both series hybrids, which is a completely different architecture. Most notably, the normal source for the traction power are the batteries in a hybrid, and diesel locos don't have traction batteries at all. For the Volt, you are also wrong about it not having "a direct drive connection to the ICE" - it does, although it's only engaged when the range extender is running and the road speed is within a certain range.

    • What shall we ask Kelly Ann Collins?
      https://www.producthunt.com/live/kelly-ann-collins

      Hi - I'm Kelly Ann Collins, the founder of Vult Lab, where I works with startups, nonprofits, influencers and companies on their social media strategy. I am also the co-founder of Kittr, where we are building social media tools, which people are saying will "revolutionize" the way people use social media. Throughout my career, I've worked on projects involving hundreds of awesome companies and orgs, including some you might know - like Jamba Juice, United Nations, Steve Case's Revolution, Conservation International, Starbucks, HP, Adobe, Peter Gabriel's The Toolbox, Disney and Prince William's Royal Foundation. I also founded a pop-politics blog with 3 million readers a month. I am so excited to be here today. Ask me anything!
