Voted the 3rd most overused cliché on ebaumsworld...

edit: whoops, double post. Still, while we're here:

Awesome game, spot the AR-15

It isn't a cliche. This is a freaking all seeing eye for gods sake

I think this time its usage is justified :D




Is that a fire-spitting menorah? I wonder if the guy who made it has a program that can interpret any GH song or if he has to do it manually. Doing it manually would be a lot easier but less cool :wink:

I think each solenoid valve is linked to a button on the controller.
However, you are probably only a few A/D converters and a few RC filters from making an array that would work for any audio input. :wink:

EDIT: I see PS is here, so: or, an Arduino sketch. :lol:

I see PS is here, so: or, an Arduino sketch.
they say that these days everything has become just a code problem rather than hardware problem or whatever... That makes sense you know why would I use a 555 timer for a circuit that needs pretty much a 555timer when the price of all the components and putting them on the board is similar to that of the uC... and the uC offers more features?

Not arguing that. I actually had a microcontroller in mind when I said that, I was just commenting on your preferences. :P

It's not about preferences it's just an awesome platform. For the price of a standalone programmer you get both a development board and a programmer

Plus there are like tons of tutorials and examples all over the internet

Now to return to the original meme: Damn nature, you scary!

"WARNING: The video below shows acts of predation, to wit: an eagle knocking a mountain goat off a cliff to its death and carrying it away, so don’t watch it unless you can stomach nature at its reddest of tooth and claw." h/t: JC - Why Evolution Is True

The segment starting at 5:10 is ridiculous, the eagle is actually flying with a goat grasped in its talons.

Copulating Gehenna!!! Amazing how it manages a decent glide even with the dead weight and drag of the goat.

6:39 - not sure if clumsy or intentional

Interested about the talk of a automated detection system for marijuana. Hands down would reduce drug usage. Something that should be fast tracked as it is a leap in efficiency versus status quo ho hum.

Hyperspectral imaging:

Great paper about the technology: (marijuana specific)
link

Long shot here but if someone is going to a university it seems like a perfect project to research. If it could work with a hit rate of even 1:500 it would be worth it. aka a DEA employee would peruse the "hits" and manually verify. Classic science of just isolating variables.

I doubt it was intentional. The eagle looked like it was trying to get its prey all the way to its eyrie (aerie, however it's spelled).

Although the drop probably makes for some tender mutton. :P
