    Thank you for the VO2 article. I was not expecting material science in the unexpected Shortbread. Double win. 🙂

      Sorry that one grated you the wrong way. It may not have been a Gouda’nough choice.

      [i<]Edit: Oh Mozzarella-balls, I just noticed that's the same joke derFunkstein has in the top comments right now. The shame. :-/[/i<]

    Considering we have not had any real winter in NJ and eastern PA yet this year, I am OK with 6 more weeks. I have not even had to use my snowblower yet. Sad

      • chuckula

      You didn’t buy that thing last year did you?
      After the blizzard?
      [url<]http://6abc.com/weather/allentown-sets-snow-record-with-319-inches/1171969/[/url<] Yeah, that's your mistake right there. You get at least 5 years of no-snow insurance after buying one of those things.

        • davidbowser

        Ha! I am maybe 50 miles from Allentown, in NJ.

        I have had my current blower for 4-5 years, but It has dug me out from some serious blizzards in that time. I sent a picture of my first floor bathroom window with snow covering the bottom half of the glass to west coast coworkers last year when they saw the national weather and got concerned for me. That was 2 days and maybe 20-30 inches of snow with drifts 6+ ft high. Of course, being in NJ meant that it rained within a couple weeks and it was almost all melted away.

          Lol. I’m originally from north Jersey and I grew up in Allentown.

          I still remember you’d either have a way mild winter or get nailed by blizzards. Not much in between.

          I was in Hamilton, NJ for a while. Nice area. As long as you don’t go too far west.

      • Krogoth

      South NJ, Maryland and North Virginia would have to disagree with you. 😉

    [quote<]Bizarre metal conducts electricity without heating up @ New Atlas[/quote<] But the article says that it does heat up, it just heats up 1/10 of what theory predicted. The rest of the article reads like a plea for attention from a good science editor.

      Details. Details. At least they didn’t go all the way to “Room Temperature Conductor Discovered!?”. 🙂

      It’s pretty neat stuff even discounting the conductivity pomp.

      A reference came to mind, from sometime in my childhood. I believe it was Robert Heinlein’s (Lazarus Long, Methuselah’s Children?) character who was good at making the simplest things get the job done, and says something like “You can kill a man with six inches of vanadium wire through the tear duct.”

      I’ve been deathly afraid of vanadium ever since …

      [bonus points to anyone who can find the original quote. =) ]

        • willmore
        • 3 years ago

        I think I’ve read all of his works and that quote doesn’t strike a bell. Also, google didn’t find anything. And, if google doesn’t find anything, it’s not so. 🙁

          Ah well, thanks for trying. I was an avid reader of Analog (Science Fiction/Science Fact) magazine, had a subscription at 12 yrs. old lol. They took a survey of their readers, the top 20 all-time sci-fi novels, and I’d read 19 of them prior to the survey – o.O

          So the line could have come from anywhere.

    Oooh, Colten shortbread.

      Likely 4 weeks actually. GDC is Feb 27 and would make for a convenient launch date in Q1
