Some scholars believe the Commander in Chief Clause confers expansive powers on the President, but others argue that even if that is the case, the Constitution does not define precisely the extent of those powers.

"We have calculated that one kilogram of aluminum powder can produce 220 kilowatts of energy in just three minutes," said Dr. Anit Giri "

Sigh.  Physics fail.
Kilowatts is not a unit of energy, it is a unit of power -- in other words, a rate of energy.

In order to tell me how much energy this 1kg of aluminum powder can make, you have to tell me how long this 220kW of power will last.  If I have a hypothetical device that requires 220kW of power to work, can I run it for a second?  A minute?  An hour?  The difference between 220 Kilowatt-microseconds and 220 Kilowatt-hours is a pretty farking enormous amount of energy.

Soldier is capitalized for the same reason Marine is capitalized. It's been official Army policy since 2003 and has widely been adopted elsewhere when specifically referring to a member of the Army and not used as a generic term for a military person. It's not new.

RealityChuck: The world is facing the prospect of a phosphorous shortage (no joke) and it's easily harvested from urine...


Came here to joke that "it's s cover up for making phosphorus bombs!"

Also, FTA:
"The team is still investigating why urine causes a faster reaction, but it may have something to do with the electrolytes and the acidity of the liquid."
Meaning when they tested it, they didn't have a premise. So rather it was "this thing makes hydrogen from liquids. I'm going to make it produce hydrogen from my pee! Heheheh"

/male scientists at work, ladies. This is why we make the big bucks!
//no, not serious
///well, other than that guys are more likely to test their pee based on no scientific premise whatsoever

I didn't say it's caught on universally. But it isn't uncommon when referring to a member of the US Army. Government docs, press releases, etc. typically capitalize it and a lot of publications follow along if for no other reason than to maintain consistent style. I was in the Army at the time the change was being implemented, so I always notice when I see the word whether it is capitalized or not.

Any ailment you have in the Army can be solved by either drinking water or taking Motrin. Sometimes both if you're really bad off, like with a compound fracture.

I remember in basic, you never really saw a doctor. sick call was staffed with a bunch of lower enlisted who diagnosed you with a flow chart. They (and this is how they actually did it) asked you a series of questions and followed the lines. Like "are you snotty?" If snotty, turn to page 3. "Is your snot yellow or green?" If green continue to page 6. But it really didn't matter what you picked because all the lines ended up on the last page which said "give Motrin."
I had a really bad cough for several days, so I went to sick call where an Army doctor told me "Sometimes people cough just because they want to cough. My advice to you is to stop coughing." And that was it. Didn't listen to my lungs, take my temp or farking anything. The next day I was in the hospital with pneumonia. Stayed for 3 days.
