    Americans (RANT ALERT)

    I haven't done a whole lot of traveling but it's really obvious there is an "Americanization" when it comes to food. It feels like it kinda takes away from some of the quality, but it's all about finding the good sources. That's alot of the fun in it. If there was any one thing that I would...

    Medical How bad is marijuana for your health?

    Re: Marijuana You mean...like...standard old research? There are plenty of papers out there that exemplify this. http://www.physorg.com/news183466246.html Ok, after writing this it kinda sounds like I'm ranting. I'm not. I'm just pissed at people who groupthink. It's lazy and pathetic. First...

    Interesting interferometer experiment!

    I'm not even an engineer and I can tell you that this thing is bunk. First off, the fringe shift changes based on time of day (his words). There are no opposite side supports to any piece of the apparatus. Aluminum is a pretty flexible material and I'm sure those box tubes are moving. It's not...

    Originless Coordinates?

    Maybe it's more of an Omni-Origin coordinate system. Every element is it's own origin, and their dimensions are ratios of their sister elements.

    Medical How bad is marijuana for your health?

    Re: Marijuana I know people with asthma have the risk of dieing, I think medical problems with lung issues are the primary things, but then you could just snack on some cookies or whatever. There is also the issue of a preexisting issue of funky brain chemistry which may lead you to suicide...

    Charismatic push through mastodon

    Yeah I don't know if I would want to be called a massive and excessively hairy beast that can't find a home and is forced to roam forever.

    The obesity epidemic

    Just grazing (lol) over the posts in this thread I haven't seen much about the addictiveness of fast food. Time and time again from all the lower income people I've met, they all eat fast food and don't know why. It's a combination of convenience and natural urge which I've found to be the...

    Originless Coordinates?

    Hmm..Affine Space isn't exactly what I was thinking of.

    Originless Coordinates?

    This is something that has always been in my mind, yet everywhere I look I can't find an answer. Is there any type of coordinate system that has no origin? As in, everything is found by relation to other elements within the model? :confused:

    Power consumption: Residential vs. Commercial

    I'm sure those numbers have vastly changed since 2004.

    Schools Engineering college rankings

    Massachusetts. I just took a tour at Wentworth and they seem to be a fair undergrad place, but from what I saw (admittedly not much, nor had access to any professors there) the mechanical engineering side of their electromechanical degree was a bit underwhelming. Just gotta keep looking I guess.

    Power consumption: Residential vs. Commercial

    Just a hypothetical question here. It's just a thought that popped into my head that I thought was an interesting topic. Seeing as many companies now have data centers and server farms, what would to say consumes more power overall? All of the technologically superior countries' companies'...
