Re: 1462: "Blind Trials"

I can't help but think of the sex pills from Barbarella (which shows up on my US netflix but not my partner's Canadian netflix).

Also one of the people in my head is giggling over the idea of ejaculating sugar pills, should a more strict reproductionist view of sex be taken.

Re: 1073: "Weekend"

Great Randell, now I work on Saturdays. Way to ruin it all. ... Actually I think the larger issue is the length of the week overall. Some more frequent shorter breaks and rarer longer breaks might do well. Saturday and Tuesday are totally my days off every week... oh, and Sunday, but that's more bec...

You're calendar should have a January 2013 somewhere in the margins. Did anyone check the margins in the Mayan calendar?

Hmm... I just figured that if anything shiny is that way because of the electron sea thingy that also makes it conductive and everything, and traditionally to bounce photons you use electron streams, it'd be bouncing off of the reflective surface... No clue how glass works, still.

Even then, fighters and aerobatic aircraft would only be able to sustain it for short periods of time. I can't recall if that's due to stresses on the pilot or danger of the plane falling out of the sky though. Aircraft can fly indefinitely upside down. Depending on the camber of your airfoil, you ...
