Re: The worst film you've seen

I have a very low tolerance for bad movies. I don't watch anything unless it gets decent reviews, so i haven't seen many of the truly awful low-budget movies. Hulk (2003) just felt long, boring, stupid and generally unappealing. Also, it was ugly. Shooter (2007) is just a bunch of boring political v...

Re: Perfect Moments In Music

The much too obvious one: Dire Straits - Sultans of Swing Dinosaur Jr. - Raisans. Contains one of my favorite guitar solos. Stooges - Search & Destroy. From 2:30 on when they crank up the distortion. Pixies - Gouge Away. Pretty much the whole song, but more specifically the screamy parts. Pixies...

Re: Recommend one artist

AGORAPHOBIC NOSEBLEED Grindcore with a drum machine. The lyrics are interesting and offensive. I like the screaming, it's kind of like that of an abusive husband. The music is engaging and good for cleaning out my ears. A good chunk of the songs on this album are shorter than 6 seconds. http://www.y...

Visible precursors to Earth?

I just thought of something (probably not original) that kind of blew my mind. Our solar system is less than 5*10^9 years old, yet we can see much further than 5*10^9 light years away and thus into the past. Is it then possible for us to see the stars that eventually went supernova and created the c...

Re: Annoying words, and Words You Hate

I don't like the word "gorgeous" when meaning "beautiful". It just seem so creepy. "That girl over there is gorgeous." Who talks like that?

Re: INTRO THREAD THE THIRD

27/Male/Sweden I'm finishing up a vocational education in mechanical engineering/CAD, and I'm pretty good with CATIA and Pro/Engineer. I like to draw and I've been thinking about making comics. I was born here, but embarrassingly i have kind of an immigrant/ghetto accent because i talk too much in F...

Re: What-if 0013: Laser Pointer

My first thought was the question of lightspeed--for example, aiming at the sun would not work too well, as the light takes 16 minutes for a round trip, so the rotation of the earth puts your aim off by 4°, which is a big factor when your target is only about 0.5° wide. However, since the moon is o...
