Re: Maximize the post:views ratio! (if you look, you must p

Sperm whales are not named so for their white color, but because when the first whalers caught one, they drilled into it's skull to extract the precious whale oil, only to find a white waxy substance instead. It was originally thought to be the whale's sperm, but that has since been disproven. It is...

Re: Corrupt-a-wish

Granted, but they're too busy procrastinating to get around to tell anyone.

I wish the world was run by competent people instead of corrupt assholes.

Re: Artificial Life by Steve Grand

And what happens when the creatures turn out to be conscious, realize they're living in my computer, and want out? If it's advanced as Steve says it is, then this sounds like a legitimate threat.

Plutonium is apparently an infinitely powerful fuel source that can be easily used to power any type of machine you choose, namely cars.
