+Wayne Hobbins You keep referring to your original rant... and yes... it is a rant. As in, senseless and FUD. -- I also really don't like the fact that you're suggesting that me or my family has some sort of financial interest in Dremel. -- The KITAs asked me what printer I like. I told them.. you've been an asshole since then... no joke... no LOL... in all seriousness.

DTNS + Gibson = more information in an hour than you'll ever get in other news programs. Best episode ever.  Those who don't like the length can't handle The Gibson.

I weep for this pathetic country.  I've had to deprogram my kids from this idiocy. 
 
Uhmmmmm...

I don't even see how they did this.  My kid looked at this like what??? and he plays Academic Games.

I love the LED projects, and the format of the show now. I was on track to start replacing all of my home bulbs with LED from Cree until I saw a high speed movie taken of one, and it was flickering like crazy. Is this due to AC electricity going to the bulbs (or the LEDs in them)? Is it just a thing that all LEDs do? What are the eye strain concerns with a room light with these bulbs? I'd love to see some show address these issues and this seems like exactly the place.

LED Christmas/faerie lights are usually only half wave rectified, hence they flicker at 60Hz instead of 120, and to add insult to injury the forward voltage of the string is high enough that they are only lit for about half of the alternation, so a quarter of the time total. I see the flicker and it gives me a headache.

I couldn't use a CRT computer monitor at 60Hz for the same reason. 75Hz was bearable and 85Hz was smooth for me.

I have a wearable... it's called a wristwatch.  It's solar powered and syncs with the nuclear clock in Cheyenne Mountain.  It has to be AT LEAST that functional before I"ll buy some junk from Apple, Google, or anyone else.  I have enough crap to charge already.
