  • Commented on Social architecture and the house of tomorrow
    One thing I recall from reading about hydroelectric dams was the importance of "head" pressure delivered to the generator, depending on how far of a drop the water was falling before it hit the turbine, farther being more powerful and...
  • Commented on Social architecture and the house of tomorrow
    If an attempt at carbon footprint reduction raises concern over idle phone chargers, first dial your thermostat down to fifty (don't want pipes freezing!) and leave it there all winter. And quit using air conditioning unless you've already stripped...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (2)
    Reply to Pigeon @798: Or if I hear someone on TV rattling off a statistic in meters per second, I have a hard time imagining what that means. So I just mentally double whatever number they mentioned, and it's close...

  • Commented on Canned Monkeys Don't Ship Well, the Remix Version
    I have this itchy need to write a superhero story in which our protagonist acquires powers following an unfortunate accident in a CRISPR lab. Looking forward to the arch-nemisis episode "Enter the Asshat", in which a supervillain, named for his...
  • Commented on On hold
