Printing should decrease the price and $18000 doesn't look cheap. Printing the bodywork isn't a big deal, unless it's carbon fibre, it's really not hard to rapid-prototype without printing (molding, pressing, anything basically). So... come back when you have something.

Either clueless or suicidal. Every person with a driving license can see the oncoming truck is waay to close (should have merged back behind the truck). It's also strongly discouraged and in some circumstances illegal to overtake more than one vehicle at a time, and for a good reason.

Why are people so obsessed with cupholders anyway? I've never used one nor did I see anyone else use it - at least not for drinks. Don't drink while driving. Stop, rest and eat and drink up, and go back to driving. Who keeps drinks open and needs a sip every other second? A needless distraction and a bad habit.

#1 all over Europe, bottle return for a refund has been a thing for decades. But lately, everything is switching to either plastic, or to nonrefundable bottles - apparently, going through the entire recycling process, with separate disposal bins, all the transportation of raw material, filtering and the furnace, is somehow cheaper than just washing and sterilizing the bottles. I have no clue how that works out.

+11 12. orion commented 5 years ago on video Guy connects 244 9v batteries in a row...

#2 you mixed up some quantities. Capacity (mAh) is the amount of charge. That has nothing to do with current you can get out of it, only how long it takes to empty it. Also, amp*hours (times, not division, that's crucial here). Notice mili (1/1000) times A (ampere) times h (hour): the more current you have, the less time you can use the battery, the product staying the same.

If you put batteries in a series, voltages add together, but the current only depends on the resistance: on how much load you put on it, and the internal resistance of the batteries. If you short-circuit it, the only thing that matters is the resistance of the battery itself, and if that's too low, the current is enough to overheat and destroy the battery. The resistance of the battery is quite difficult to guess, you have to measure it (by measuring the current, for instance)! You need U=R*I (voltage equals resistance times current: more resistance means less current and vice-versa).

+5 17. orion commented 6 years ago on video The gloves that will "change the way we make music"

This isn't really for making music, more like for generating random sound effects. There's no way you can create a proper tune or harmony with this, as a controller it cannot possibly be practical. At best, it's sort of like the theremine. There's a reason keyboard instruments were invented: they really are the best input controller for music. This one is like a touchscreen keyboard: a novelty item that's clumsy and error prone really doesn't compare to the real thing. It surely falls under the "gorilla arm" effect. If this worked, we'd all have the "minority report" interfaces to computers by now.

-4 20. orion commented 6 years ago on video Star Wars Symphonic Suite on a theatre pipe organ

The acoustics isn't very good. There are delays, the sound is blurred and slurred and can't keep up. A properly made pipe organ with mechanical or electronic relays (like this one) and correctly positioned ranks should sound much better - clearer and more accurate sound. Although it's possible that it's recorded outside the acoustic sweet spot - delays from different ranks because of physical distance from the pipes should be minimal where the majority of the audience is located. Either way, it's just lagging enough to make me constantly on edge!

As a physicist I find this unwatchable. It's just wrong, no other way to put it. This metaphor of doors actually gives you an entirely incorrect look at this phenomenon.

-1 24. orion commented 6 years ago on video How Much Does Thor's Hammer Weigh?

@2:32 horribly wrong. Speed of sound? You are talking about acceleration, not speed. It means how much you GAIN speed. So yes, from a standstill, you'd travel at the speed of sound after one second. But a second after that? Twice that speed. Really, check out your units. That's like saying 333m/s^2 is sort of like the amount of apples a whale draws during a thunderstorm.

Why do these pop-science videos always assume that "trillionth of a trillionth of a trillionth..." could possibly mean something to anybody? It's a mixture of disorienting repetition and horrible ambiguities in language (is it an actual trillion, or a billion that some people call a trillion and assume everybody else is american?). It isn't even impressive, it's just meaningless. Why not just use either a natural comparison, or exponential notation?

Sounds very dry, almost exactly like a midi file. If I only heard the sound, I would have said it's synthesized, not played on real instruments. No emotion, no heart, more like a background for a tetris game.

I wonder - is it so hard to program some emotion into the music? Some variation and imperfection -- not random, but with some parameters for building and releasing tension, tuned with some audience testing?

#4 Little packets of condiments are a huge waste anyway (not with contents but with packaging!). They are acceptable when you take food to go (in that case, you are creating lots of trash with the containers anyway), but if you eat at the restaurant, it's only reasonable to have a large bottle, a plate and proper utensils. Sadly, in the US, most places practice a very wasteful way of serving food even if you don't actually take the food home. I'm feeling bad, because no matter how much I care about not producing too much plastic waste, I know that an average US person produces as much trash each day as I do in a month. I can't actually make a difference at all.

This is excellent, so many useful applications. First of all, it can apparently figure out how dinosaurs walked (and every other extinct creature). If it automatically discovered hopping, it's robust enough. Not to mention application to physical robots (maybe Asimo will finally walk without looking like he has to pee). I realize it's harder to do this in real life and they say they are doing it already, but it doesn't look that way yet.

And earlier generations walk like they are drunk. Apparenlty alcohol makes you de-evolve :)

#7 I don't think anyone manufactures screens that big, it would have to be made to order (and at this size, there may be mechanical stress problems in the panels and back board, not to mention the cost when it needs to be replaced - replacing one screen is much easier). That would still be ok for NASA, but the next problem is there are no existing cables and connectors to plug it in, so it would still need to be a great bunch of video cards with individual connectors. So you have a mosaic of little screens - still, they could remove the frames and put them closer together, but the point is you are looking for a display device to see the data, not for a flawless image.

+5 75. orion commented 6 years ago on video How attached are cats to their owners?

I never understood why people always bring this up when saying dogs are better. You just want an easy way out. Cats and dogs can't be compared directly, they are different. A dog is attached to you like a child - or a gullible and very forgiving companion. A cat is more like a roommate. You live together, but they are independent, you just coexist and try to benefit the most from the other. But that's not a bad thing either. It's actually more realistic - relationships are hard and you must constantly do stuff for people that don't appreciate it - parents of teenagers will agree with me here. But that doesn't mean you should say teenagers (or even hard to please partners) should be replaced with dogs.

Cats are a challenge. Dogs are an easy way out.

However, if you are insecure and need to feel loved and wanted, don't get a cat :)

#2 #3 it doesn't really need mortar. It's just there for extra binding (and probably at the edge), but the arch structure in general supports itself. It's stronger than most new-fangled flat roofs. In a flat plate, the stress of the roof's weight tries to break it - it's straining it perpendicular to the plate (wants a cave-in). In an arch, the stress is distributed to a force along the arch, so it's almost as if weighs nothing. The weight that compresses the structure also holds the bricks in place. Most structures built like this (with bare stone, no binder) are still standing after a millenium, whereas modern buildings don't last more than a few decades.

+13 90. orion commented 6 years ago on video Heating a room for 8 pence a day

#3 yes, if you are in primary school. There is no such thing as perfect combustion in practice, especially with solid fuel. It doesn't just go from C15H32 to CO2, the oxygen "eats away" the molecule gradually, and at any intermediate point, the intermediate molecule may evaporate, react with something else, form aromatic rings and so on... you get basically everything in between, and there are carcinogenic compounds in there (however, this is basically wusses crying about percentages, IRL you'll probably live just fine).

Not to mention the wax (paraffin based, oil-based or beeswax) is by no means a pure chemical compound. It would cost a lot more if it were.

At first I didn't believe this, but the math holds. A candle puts out maybe a bit more than 50W, and at constant burning, 4 candles are sort of like having another person breathing in there. If the room is well insulated (not in US obviously), it might just work.

When you are looking for a house, you don't care when it was built, you just want to find it, and having them in order improves this task very much (not having to walk the entire block to find a house). Additionally, you must be able to name the roads so that you can give directions - there are roads without blocks around them, how do you tell where you are?

Physics! The rainbow can only be where the rain is. This is rare because usually you are looking at the rainbow from outside the rain, where there is sunny (and the sun strikes the rain far out). If you are inside the rain but it's still sunny, the only limitation for the rainbow is the angle and in this case, the sun is very high up, so only the very top of the arc is above ground. The full-on half-arc rainbow occurs at sunset.

Well it's semantically incorrect to say there is no pink light. It's just not monochromatic (single-wavelength). Actually, almost no light except for lasers (or LED if you are not very exact about your definition) is monochromatic, all light you know as light is broad spectrum (it doesn't mean it doesn't exist). Take for instance your LCD monitor - filtered white light by three different color pixels. No problem. Sloppy expressions can mislead people. And while we are at it, none of unsaturated (grayish) colors are spectral colors.

#(removed comment) all mammals have the brain center for compassion, cooperation and social interactions (read up on brain evolution). A mammal can be your friend, or at least, acknowledges you as beneficial or harmless to his cause. Snakes for pets, on the other hand, is a misled and dangerous idea.

Additionally, most predators (especially cats) only hunt on instinct when they are hungry. This lion already knows this guy, and thus doesn't consider him a food source. And even a totally wild lion wouldn't harm you if he's full and if you aren't acting like an ass. Even more, predator instinct is reinforced by the prey running away. Turn toward your attacker, and you have a fair chance of making him go "wtf" and reconsider his decision.

Actually, it was the best decision they could have made. You DEFINITELY don't want a single button to reboot or suspend the computer. You don't want to accidentally set it off. It's like some keyboards (mostly in schools) had some buttons next to the cursors that did shutdown/hibernate/suspend in a single stroke. They had to be taped over (after a few rage and desperation episodes). Sensitive and rarely used commands are better kept protected, like that flap over the Big Red Button.

I consider the worst decision the menu key next to the right ctrl. What a waste of space! It's a window/menu action that has nothing to do with typing. And it's very specific too: why don't other, more heavily used window actions, have their own keys? I'd much rather have another modifier and get more symbols out of my keyboard.

#16 that also comes from evolution itself: the ones that didn't have the drive to survive, just didn't. Evolution is so basic, that it's spontaneous. Diversity is just plain old mistakes at copying, and natural selection comes simply from living in some (any) environment. There is no need for the organism to force evolution - it's just subject to it (although mechanisms to speed up evolution did evolve - because it was more successful to be that way).

This is also why algorithms that mimic evolution (genetic algorithms) are used in computing - they work even when the programmer has no clue how to solve the problem. He doesn't have to know, he just needs to throw out the bad solutions and repeat the process of randomization until satisfied.

Everywhere else it's clear that religion teaches compassion, good behaviour, life lessons and coping strategies, explained by illustrative stories, conveniently packaged into the Bible (just like fairy tales teach children of dangers in the world). I grew up in a Christian household and I'm a scientist, and religion never forced its way into the natural sciences. It was just one of many different ways to suggest morals to a child and young adult. I'm very interested to know at what point in the history such radical degeneration of religion occured in some places in the world.

#6 your eyes deceive you. A quick division of height by cap diameter, or a quick glance at the end of the video tells you it's about 100 caps high. So a single "square" with the height of the room contains ~10000 caps. As the wall is much wider than tall, it comes to several times that. It could easily be more than 60k.

Scientifically completely wrong. At such scales, things take millions to cool down - sun can't suddenly go black, where would all the heat go? And pieces can't just slowly blow off, gravity is still there, and when the star dies, the inner parts collapse, and the outer parts do get blown away by the pressure of the light inside, but that is a violent explosion, not crumbling of ashes just like some common Voldemort.

Like #1 and #2 said, this is a misleading and childish explanation.

While the spring above the bottom is stretched, it is properly "hanging" on the higher parts of the slinky, its environment is exactly the same as before the top is released. The same holds if there is a tennis ball there. At the moment of release, the forces are unbalanced only for the topmost part. The disturbance then propagates downwards like waves.

If you observe the center of mass, it falls just like any other object. Only the shape of the object changes in a way that some parts remain stationary for a while. Kinda like a falling cat, only the cat's motion is much more complicated.

There's a reason why this never caught on (there were similar technologies for wireless routers out there for years). You need a line-of-sight. Or at least good white or reflective surfaces around.

As #5 said, no magnetism. Every coin does this, only it stops sooner. The rotation is not speeding up. At the end, the actual rotation speed is almost zero. Only the wobble frequency is increasing because when the angle decreases, the axis of rotation and the axis of wobble (precession) are almost parallel and fast opposite rotations about these two axes cancel out into slow actual rotation of the disk.

On the other hand, remove the front truck and you improved safety at high speeds due to human error (but keep the override option, of course). Consequently, you can raise the speed limits.

#5: suprisingly, many people talk about about magnetic "energy", about "flowing". There's magnetic field, but no energy is lost and there's no "flow" unless there's something interfering with it. Technically, those paperclips are increasing resistance in electromagnets, but the effect is so small it's undetectable.

Also, people mix up mystical energies, EM field and EM waves. Static magnetic field is something totally different from cell phone waves and those are again much different from CRT monitor radiation, gamma rays, etc. With just a little education we could stop the conspiracy theories and panic about electrical appliances.

One big fail for wannabe geeks.

It's not that strange, they're just big cats. Like with kittens, if they are close to a human from the beginning, they accept him as one of them. Anyway, if they are well fed, they have no reason to hunt, it's not like they kill for pleasure.
And even a big cat likes some cuddling :)

+22 611. orion commented 11 years ago on video Your printer is a brat

Absolutely true. And sad.
My old printer printed the page immediately when I clicked it. My new printer (supposedly some 20 pages per minute) is putting out lightshow display, breakdances for a minute with its cartridge, musically playing with himself and then finally starts printing the page after 2 minutes. And after it's done, it needs the same time to "recover". And the printers at work do the same thing. It also wouldn't turn off with on/off button and fools around for 2m55s every time the power comes back. I don't get it how newer technology needs all that crap when old printers just do what they're supposed to.

Sorry for the rant :(

I think the best against the firsters would be for server to automatically post a first post when video is added. It'd be funny and render all first posts useless.

+17 620. orion commented 11 years ago on video More 'bathtub' scenes

It's shot with tilt-shift lens which produces very narrow depth of field. This simulates optical behaviour of small objects close to the camera. You must also match playback speed so that behaviour of fluids matches those of "bathtub" circumstances. You can calculate this by matching Reynolds numbers of both flows. Before CGI this method was used to film marine battles with miniatures.

Obvious trick. Every next dress is longer and with more cleavage. It's multilayer dress, you just pull it down and the skirt folds out from the top part. Next skirt must cover the previous one, so it must be longer. You can see violet skirt rolling down at 0:55. First two dresses are however just peeled away.

Still, well performed.
