Re: What is Good?

I often try tp put myself in the shoes of others and abandon the ridiculous thought that anything in the context of human behaviour or culture can be deemed normal. Not behaving like a dick is also up there. Not being egoistic and sharing at least a bit of my wealth.I do respect and oftentimes embra...

Re: Help me name my company

Great work guys, keep em coming! If you want to be more poetic, maybe Mjölnir.

Help me name my company

I am about to dive into the hip world of start up-ism. We will be working on energy storage solutions for households with their own pv generation. Basically, we´re looking for a way to offer a cloud-like service to store electricity somewhere else instead of on-site batterys in every house. We will ...

Whats happening in MS patients?

Hello everybody, first of, mods feel free to move the thread if you consider this the wrong forum. A couple of years ago my fiance got diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.

High end bicycles can easily break the $10k mark, $1,500 is what I paid for a decent (not even top notch) front end on my DH-racer. Yes, my life is rather empty.

Otherwise a massive blast to imagine the amount of work put into this one. Thank you, sir.
