Metal with Memory

What if you could fold metal 10 million times and it just bounced back? Well, this is now possible. I can't begin to tell you the changes crystalline structures like this will being, never mind our understanding of crystals. This is a rocking start to the Monday.

A Good Article

Wow, an article on black holes and dark matter that doesn't make me wanna' throw up in my mouth a little--fantastic!

This is probably the most balanced and honest science article I've read in quite some time. It acknowledges that the "Standard Model" might be the problem and not the phenomena we observe: wow, that's like real science as opposed to the dogma of "accepted science."

And it's not even that the Standard Model needs to be scrapped entirely it is simply that some aspects of it might need modification and that, as it stands, it is possible that neither can it simply account for the discrepancies that we observe, but also, that using it to account for these discrepancies will simply not work

 In other words, if it's the model that is problematic and not the phenomena, then using the model to try to find things like "dark matter" is simply not going to be successful. And that's exactly what we're seeing: failure after failure of experiments designed based on this Standard Model to detect dark matter.

And there's nothing in this article I am even tempted to criticize. It is simply a well written and honest presentation of at least some of the situation as it stands in the scientific community. It is worth a read.

Actually, #9 is only true on newer Model S cars. On mine (July 2013 delivery), the charge port door is spring-actuated open and must be manually closed. #firstworldproblems

+Denchanter357 "The evidence shows that god resides within the human brain, and the evidence of existence externally is extremely lacking." 

Present the evidence for the following two statements. Again, from my understanding, the arguments associated with attempting to disprove the existence of God by showing him only to be a faculty of the brain reduce unto absurdity (like freud's arguments and harris' arguments, at least the ones I have covered). I could be wrong, but this is what I have found thus far. External existence is a non-issue, the God we are describing here is simply not made of matter, measuring external existence on that which cannot be directly perceived seems to be a bit backwards.  

"Look at all the cultural harm in ignorant societies and how it can be mitigated."

Indeed I do see it, but this is a sweeping claim that may need revision. This implies ignorance and intuitive are mutually exclusive. Again, even if there is a large level of cultural harm, is it the religions fault, or the person living the religion in a flawed way? What do you propose that will mitigate these cultural harms (what are these cultural harms by the way?)

The Troops of Drones in Action
- A small scale vision of future monitoring of every location on the planet perhaps?
100% 3D Software. You need a controlled environment to achieve this. No wind and a bunch of sensors surrounding the swarm. GPS has a slight delay and that many drones so close. They would all smash into each other. Now that would be something to see...➔
