  • Commented on Covid on Mars
    “ As much I would wish otherwise, there is just no financial, scientific or defense justification for a large sustained human presence in space. ” The thing is a majority of what humans do isn’t rationale. So understanding there is...
  • Commented on Covid on Mars
    Musk has always been pretty upfront with why he wants to go to Mars. He thinks the human race is a lot safer and has a lot higher chance of not going extinct if it becomes multi planetary . He...
  • Commented on Covid on Mars
    “ The condition of life of Mars will force everyone to become the equivalent of a professional SCUBA diver, with respect to life support equipment -- or risk dying because someone else got sloppy.” They talk about that in the...
  • Commented on Covid on Mars
    Imagine you put the AR goggles on your head. The computer overlays your observed reality with an exactly perfect diagram of where to cut , where to sew. It process images and diagnoses on the fly . Or the automated...
  • Commented on Covid on Mars
    I think as others have said this is a big underestimation of the advances in medical technology. The idea that we could pull off a Mars colony and we are still stuck With glass vials and metal needles doesn’t fly...
  • Commented on What happens now?
    Google has banned parlour from the play store Apple has given parlour 24 hours before they do the same Reddit has banned the Donald trump subreddit Tech has gotten the big sticks out (finally)...
  • Commented on Submarine coming through!
    Trump just gave a speech that sounded like it was written by Mitch McConnel and delivered with a gun to his head. I think the republicans are coming down hard hard on him , basically “do what we say or...

    Greg It’s not at all gray. It’s not remotely gray. You should stfu and let people do their thing. You or your wife simply don’t have any kind of say in what restroom anyone uses ....

    They generally go by the name “loitering munitions” are fully deployed and operational and were pretty instrumental in the recent Azerbaijani / Armenian war https://www.economist.com/europe/2020/10/10/the-azerbaijan-armenia-conflict-hints-at-the-future-of-war...
  • Commented on So you say you want a revolution
    You can make an argument for the supremacy of artillery from 1915-1939 You can’t really make that argument after 1939, not so much because of armor but more combined arms especially armor + air But in general it depends a...

    Here is a video of tests of a compound bow at 350-400 yards. I wouldn’t call it entirely successful 😀 https://youtu.be/OTIHN16j44k...

    Here is a video of someone trying to test primitive bow long range shooting https://youtu.be/lF1TxiforHc He was having reasonable success at 80-100 yards...
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    I was wrong in my units for compound bows, 800 ft not 800 meters. Though that was probably not a feat that gets repeated often. Archery competitions involving compound bows generally max out at 100 yards I actually don’t...
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    Everyone used spear throwers. Your knowledge of how to use a spear thrower is actually semi instinctual that’s how old they are But that analysis comparing them to a compound bow is utter bullshit. Kinetic energy doesn’t mean anything, these...
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    Part of it is that modern bows, even traditional ones are very much more effective then primitive self bows. There is a lot of tech and knowledge in bow and arrow making especially in advanced composite bows which took a...
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    I am not saying that bows were responsible for mega fauna extinction. I am saying late Stone Age advances in general were not only responsible but probably also played a role in the disappearance of Neanderthals This is more then...

    “ As I have posted before, it would have been (technically) perfectly possible to have taken a different path, and to have developed woodland and perennial management rather than clearing woodland and planting annuals and biennials. ” Thats pretty similar...
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    The problem with Het’s theories on climate stability triggering agriculture is it ignores the relatively significant technical advances that occurred in the 50k years prior to agriculture’s emergence. He acts like humanity was in some kind of steady state and...

    Antistone @ 710: What procedure do you follow to figure out which half is lies? It’s actually nowhere near as hard as you make out with regards to the examples you cited In America we actually don’t live in a...

    Many of the French place names that litter the Midwest have a common origin and a rather amusing story behind them https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Visit_of_the_Marquis_de_Lafayette_to_the_United_States...

    The polls were not very good in 2016, especially the state polls Yes there is a meme about how they were “no worse then average” abs depending on how you look at it mathematically that is even true. However they...
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    You really cannot trust the polls Despite some really excellent work by Nate Silver and others this election is extremely unusual especially with regards to voter turnout, and without good benchmarks you cannot come up with a meaningful error bar...

    “And this applies to Central and South America as well” If you subtract out the word “European” this applies equally well to the entire world . This is basically a summary of how the world has operated from the Neolithic...
