Sweet Meteor of Death You Guys

The meteor that hit Russia turned out to be not 10 tons, as originally thought, but 10,000 tons.

And, the funny thing is, that's so "small" an object we can't even track things that size.

And there are 100,000 objects in that size range "likely" to hit earth at some point.

Ace of Science: I don't know what purpose there is to making cells which actually get healthier after they die (what?), but there's gotta be some purpose.

If we can't track them, who counted them? And what were the odds that there would be exactly 100,000?

The universe is still non-stop activity for the next five billion years or so - long after the Earth is a crispy critter in about two billion. We shouldn't be the least bit surprised if we still get a 'little action' once in a while.

There's some serious thread stomping going on here, you guys.

OT...because this thread will soon die anyway:

The company I contract with is sending me a Fluke ground test device....it retails at about a thousand dollars. They bought a dozen or more of these meters for us field guys.

I learned in high school to use a 9 volt battery, and a small incandescent lamp....If the bulb lights...you have ground. It killed batteries quick...but it was cheap, and simple. If there is a path to ground, the battery will discharge through whatever path you provide it....in that case, neg terminal to light bulb, to ground.

The light bulb, of course, provided current limiting. You can do the same thing with an LED, but you'll have to add a current limiting resistor.

I've redesigned that earlier circuit to use super caps as my current source....60 Farads, (which recharge in about 60 seconds through a USB port), a high intensity LED I ripped out of a flashlight, and a small resistor to limit current. It works like a charm...just touch the device's contact to a suspect ground, and if the LED lights....you have a ground. Total cost....about ten bucks.

106 DAGGONE IT! Ace, could you please give us more than a few minutes so that when discussions get started we could continue?

Here is what I posted at the end of the LAST thread, which I am putting here even though it is off-topic because by gooly, I want someone to think about it!!
-----------------------

#84 Rome13, I am wondering about those former SEALS who are saying that
there is a "secret war" going on in Libya and other parts of North
Africa.

The inference was that the orders came from the White
House and bypassed the chain of command. So who gave those orders?
Either it was that nutball Brennan acting on his own, in which case he
should be fired and in jail, or it was Obama, in which case there should
be a congressional inquiry to see what the hell is going on.

The
rumors of Obama getting his jollies watching drone strikes indicates to
me that he is in on it, but he is so clueless it could be that Brennan
is giving the orders and then calling him in to watch the strikes, as a
way to curry favor and get his nomination as CIA director.

However,
some of this could be my paranoia, as I am convinced all of them are
evil, and there might be a logical explanation for all of this. I can't
think of one, but I am willing to listen if anyone has one.

DAGGONE IT! Ace, could you please give us more than a few minutes so that when discussions get started we could continue?

Epic thread stomps! In the time it took me to compose the following, two more entries to the blawg were posted:


I had a cat...years ago. I named him Frankie. He was a white and black long hair, kind of nondescript, but he had blue eyes...hence his name. There was obviously a Siamese behind the wood-shed in his lineage somewhere. He'd even suck his 'thumb', (dew claw). I couldn't leave the house without him. If he heard my keys rattle, he'd barricade the front door, emanating an impervious wall of purrs, until I picked him up, and took him with me.

He loved the car, and would drape himself over the back of my seat, drooling, purring, and 'kneading'. When I got out to go into the store, or whatever, he'd stretch out on the dashboard and nap until I got back. While driving, he'd have his head against mine, rubbing, and purring...and usually drooling.

At home though, he was nothing like that. He would, rarely, walk close enough to get a quick pet...but generally preferred his own company. He hated other people, and would hide himself away if I had company over. If he wanted something...food or water....he'd keep his distance and meow until I figured out what it was he wanted. Oh....and catnip...that furry little fuck was a junky in the worst way. Pupils dilated, hyperventilating, attacking imaginary foes.

At night, he'd sneak up on to my bed, and curl up between my feet....and if I moved, he'd growl at me. He was a freaky, and weird cat. I still miss him.

119 Meteors always appear to come in at a shallow angle, and never
borestraight in vertically. Must be a physical reason - being
attractedby Earth's gravity curves them in on a shallow orbit-like path
or something.


To come straight down, a meteor would have to be traveling on a line to the center of the earth (roughly). Even without gravity the odds of such a straight hit are going to be small Any that need the effect of gravity to cross our path are definitely not going to look straight down.

Good news is NASA just dragged out of the Smithsonian a Saturn V F-1 engine that was supposed to go on the Apollo 11 mission and they tested one part of it. Worked fine and generated 30,000lbs of thrust.

And the truly sad thing is, in dollars the NASA budget of 1967 is the same as 2012. Less than $4 billion.

Love and Kisses, as always, the U.S.

But.....our current regime is already loading up freighters with grain, stacks of money, and are trying desperately to word their wussified missives into something other than the ass-up-in-the-air abject surrenders than they actually are.

219 Speaking of SMOD, that reminds me my Grandma used to have this carpeted toilet lid. This horrible thing with shag pink carpet and flowers sewn onto it. I hated that thing. It was so thick that it made the lid and seat lean forward just a little bit when set back. So, invariably when I'd lift it and start to pee it would fall down.

So, you're whizzing away and this thing falls down lid first bang!, and while you're trying to pinch the flow you're bending over frantically trying to pick the damn lid back up as you're hosing it and the seat down, and try to lean over and hold it while you finish because the "stem the flow" thing didn't go so well.

Luckily, nobody can hear you pissing on plush carpet. Unluckily, you really can't do much to blot it dry. That's when I discover that it was carpeted to be a nice cushy surface to sit on - I mean, WTF? Who sits on a carpeted toilet you guys?

Due to malfunction, Pentagon suspends all F-35 flights
Plane, considered costliest weapons program in US history, was grounded due to malfunctions; Fighter was sold to Israel, to arrive in 2015
Yitzhak Benhorin
Published: 02.23.13, 00:26 / Israel News



WASHINGTON – The Pentagon on Friday suspended the flights of all F-35 fighter planes after a routine inspection revealed a crack on a turbine blade in the jet engine of an F-35 test aircraft in California. The Israeli Air Force is among the few air forces in the world to be operating the fighter plane, starting 2015.

The F-35 program office said it was too early to know the fleet-wide impact of the engine issue, but it was suspending all flights until an investigation into the issue was completed.

Related stories:

The Pentagon said it was working closely with Pratt & Whitney, the United Technologies Corp unit which builds the engine for the fighter, and Lockheed Martin Corp, the prime contractor for the radar-evading warplane, to ensure the integrity of the engine and return the F-35 fleet to flight as soon as possible.

265 Military procurement Officers have been doing that ^((^^% since forever.

Someone points out a simple solution to a known situation.

The design is drawn up and spec'd out and looks good but before the contract can be rewarded some bright spark in the puzzle palace decides that now would be a good time to exert themselves and show how important their particular fiefdom really is and sends memos to all concerned that this particular platform would also be IDEAL for this other job/mission if they only added xyz and put in abc electronics or added fgh additional equipment/armor. Everyone concerned (except the original designer) jumps on board the latest new project to stake out their own particular specialty and requirements.

By the time they're done, the platform is over weight, under powered and now costs 5 times as much (as estimated) and it's original mission is looking iffy as to whether it even can get accomplished under the onus of all the additional gear and changes to the envelope.

then we come to the building phase. The contractor (knowing they're getting time and material) bids outrageously low so as to acquire the rights to keep sucking on that govt' teat for just a little longer until they can merge with OdonnellMartinRaytheonDouglasGeneralElectric and bail before the sub par performance reviews start coming in from testing.
