SGI shows off Molecule concept machine


Dave, my mind is going. I can feel it.

@ Francis Boyle

"Looks uncannily like HAL"

I was thinking the same thing. I wonder if the design was deliberate, to that end...

"The person that whines today is the person I hire tomorrow at below standard rates - whiners don't generally do much other than whine you know."

You hire those whiners, who do nothing but whine? This makes you the chief of whiners, no?

@ Liam again

"A Pit Bull does not lock its jaw as do other dogs, but it lower jaw scissors back and forth to rend flesh from the bone."

"i knew there was something special with the jaw but i think the old wives tale of the locking misguided me. its the fact they have a different motion that cleaves meat from the bone... unlike any other dog..."

Sorry, going to have to cop you again! You just googled up the other BS myth about Pitbull jaws (and yes I see the source that you used). The 'scissor jaw' is just a term for the arrangement of their teeth in upper and lower jaw. The other stuff about PSI is junk science at best. I would agree that they *are* very strong dogs though.

Gotta love the hysteria over dog attacks in the UK - well everywhere really - the percentage of injuries or deaths caused by dogs is *utterly insignificant* compared to car accidents, knives, and just about anything else remotely dangerous. But the press need their stories, and the public need their hangings, I guess.

@ Liam

I wondered who would be the first to trot out the usual BS about locking jaws. Staffordshire Bull Terriers are strong, but their jaws are not anatomically different than those of other dogs. Same goes for for the other breeds this is falsely attributed to: American Pit Bulls, and Bull Terriers.

Cow turds fuel Blighty's hydrogen filling station embrace

Thumb Down


"Normally, hydrogen is produced in industrial quantities ... involves massive CO2 emissions, making the use of hydrogen vehicles rather pointless."

Whether it's pointless or not depends on your goals doesn't it? Surely managing the pollutants and CO2 generated in the hydrogen production process, is easier than managing that generated from multiple sources (cars).

It seems to me the processes involved can be kept remote from population centres, and equipment *could* be serviced regularly to keep pollution at a controllable level - unlike a lot of cars about right now.
