That's impressive. I bet you could accomplish cold fusion criticality if you played the recordings of politics threads through those speakers.

We're just rediscovering the technology the Egyptians used to build the pyramids. And it's about time.

I remember a Beyond 2000 program where they were talking with the Bose scientists about using the ultrasonic manipulators to condense smog.

I don't know how coal soot scrubbers work, but China needs to try something.

GratuityIncluded: Death ... by stereo


True story, the band "Death by Stereo" was playing a house show in my college town.  The stage was on the second floor, and the people who lived there would put a mattress over the windows so people would crash into them and break them or fall out.  So, things must have gotten crazy, because the whole matress, window, and frame assembly all popped out, and a half dozen people fell out of the window onto a concrete driveway below.  2 people died and most of the others had some serious injuries.

/Weirdest part was that I couldn't go to the show because I had a reinforced concrete structures test the next morning.  My buddy who lived at the house had described the construction of the floor upstairs, and to study I ran calculations for how much weight the floor could support.  Everything checked out for even a very dense group of people, and I below the calcs I scribbled "The XXXXX House is Safe to Rock!"...found out the next day two people died...aced my test though.

Floor science is not defenestration science.

What are you talking about? It was the second comment in.

SilentStrider: Let me know when we can use it to assemble cabinets.

War Doctor:

"Oh the pointing again. They're screwdrivers! What are you going to do? Assemble a cabinet at them?"

Oh now that's fantastic. I can't believe I missed it!
