Well.. This changes everything!
 
The universe may have existed forever, according to a new model that applies quantum correction terms to complement Einstein's theory of general relativity. The model may also account for dark matter and dark energy, resolving multiple problems at once.

Ah ha!
So that's the answer!!
 
Fun Fibonacci Puzzle

The key to this "Missing Square Puzzle" is that neither of the 13×5 "triangles" is truly a triangle, because what appears to be the hypotenuse is bent.

In other words, the "hypotenuse" does not maintain a consistent slope, even though it may appear that way to the human eye. Overlaying the hypotenuses from both figures results in a very thin parallelogram, which then gets folded up to demonstrate that it has an area of exactly one grid square, which accounts of the "missing" area.

According to Martin Gardner, this particular puzzle was invented by a New York City amateur magician, Paul Curry, in 1953. However, the principle of a dissection paradox has been known since the start of the 16th century. The integer dimensions of the parts of the puzzle (2, 3, 5, 8, 13) are successive Fibonacci numbers, and leads to the exact unit area in the thin parallelogram. Many other geometric dissection puzzles are based on a few simple properties of the Fibonacci sequence.

The missing square puzzle is an optical illusion often used in mathematics classes to help students reason about geometrical figures, or rather to teach them to not reason by making assumptions from using figures, but only using the textual description and math principles to deduce the answer.

Hi!
I'm facing some issues in nameless-5.0.2-20141221-i9300 build.
Some apps are crashing as soon as I open them like clash of clans. This app was working fine in 20141117 build. In this build it just closes. Netflix and Google play movies and TV apps are not working. They were not working in previous version as well.
If there's any workaround for clash of clans and Netflix it'll be great. Or anything tweaking that I can do to make it work.
Otherwise this build looks great.
Also, I was wondering why is ram so less? With touchwiz I was having more than 800 mbs!

ok..so I think i found out why coc was crashing. The avaliable memory for low memory killer in /sys/module/lowmemorykiller/parameters/minfree is set very high. 
Values are : 18432,23040,27648,32256,56250,81250

I changed values to 18432,23040,27648,32256,36864,41472. 
And now coc is working fine.

It would be great if devs can confirm this..
And also tell if it's ok or not, to edit the file to make these values permanent.

Ok!
I got it... You believe in God!
But what'll you achieve by posting His Photo on Social Networking Site?
I mean you are His follower and stuff... but will your liking or posting His pics on Social Networking Site earn you any favors or will it help you to enter heaven?
Unless you can prove that any of the things said above is true or that God has gone digital and this(fb, g+, etc) is His new temple... Please stop doing so..
Not for your sake, then at least for you friends/followers who wants to know what you're up to without getting suck into this!!!
Thanks for your consideration!

Hi!
     I'm a new user. I'm  trying to learn Wireless hacking. So,I got Alfa AWUS036NHV. But while starting monitoring mode it's not able to start.
There's no error. From what I googled, I was able to find that out of the box driver for these devices don't work for monitoring. So, can anyone tell me where to find driver for this device?

"The biggest thing you should learn from all this? That “the Big Bang” represents where everything we see in the Universe comes from, but it is not the very beginning of the Universe anymore. We can go back before this explanation is any good, to an inflationary Universe, and we have good reasons to argue over and debate the finer points of what, exactly, that means for the ultimate origin of everything we know."
 
"When you think about how the Universe got its start, from a scientific point of view, there’s one theory that explains what we see above all others: the Big Bang. But not everyone agrees on what “the Big Bang” actually means. In particular, there’s some news going around that perhaps there was no Big Bang, after all. Is this legitimate? And if it is, what does it mean, exactly?"

Sure, the Big Bang never happened, and a quantum equation proves it. If, that is, you're willing to use a definition of the Big Bang that's decades out of date. It really, really happened.

Here's what we know, and how we know it. Cut through the confusion, and don't be fooled by bad science writing -- or charlatans looking for attention -- ever again!
When scientists say “the Big Bang,” they mean two possible things. But only one of them is still correct.

The oscillatory universe theory has voided long back; based on the amount of dark energy (~70%) this universe contains. This universe is (so far) a constantly expanding one (on positive time axis).

CARE set to launch into space, heralding India's first step towards human spaceflight

The press was abuzz when in February, 2014, when Hindustan Aeronautics Limited, a public sector aerospace agency, the Indian equivalent of Lockheed Martin, handed over the structural component of the Crew Module to ISRO. 

Meanwhile, ISRO was developing the Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle, India's first rocket launcher with a cryogenic stage. Having exhausted the cryogenic engines borrowed from Russia, ISRO proceeded to reverse-engineer them, and thus developed GSLV Mark II.

GSLV Mk II was hailed as partially indigenous, as its cryogenic stage was developed from the Russian cryo stage, and the rest of the launch vehicle was indigenous. As flights of GSLV Mk II continued, ISRO continued to developed GSLV Mk III, which would feature a completely indigenous cryogenic stage. 

The developmental project of GSLV Mk III was code-named LVM3, which has recently surfaced as an obvious fact. This will be the first flight of the GSLV Mk III.

The first stage is consisted of the S-200 solid rocket boosters, 25 metres long, 3.2 metres in diameter, which can hold 200 tonnes of solid propellant.

The second stage, designated L-110, is a liquid stage. 4 metres in diameter, it can contain 110 tonnes of propellant. It runs on 2 Vikas Engines, which were indigenously developed after gaining technological know-how by reverse-engineering Viking engines. It runs on a fuel known in the aerospace industry as UH 25, which is basically a mixture of 75% UDMH and 25% hydrazine. 

UDMH, or unsymmetrical dimethyl hydrazine, is an allotrope of hydrazine with a methyl group attached to it. Dinitrogen pentoxide is used as the oxidiser.

In flight, as the thrust from the S200 boosters begins to tail off, the decline in acceleration is sensed by the rocket’s onboard sensors and the twin Vikas engines on the L110 liquid propellant core stage are then ignited. 

The third stage, or the Cryogenic Upper Stage, is code-named C-25. The C-25 runs of the CE-20, an Indian cryogenic engine developed from technical know-how gained, once again, from reverse-engineering cryogenic engines ISRO had purchased from Russia. 4 metres in diameter, 8.2 metres long, it can hold 25 tonnes of propellant.

The CE-20 runs on liquid hydrogen as fuel, with liquid oxygen as the oxidiser. Both of these are cryogenic fluids, they need to be kept at very low temperature. Cryogenic engines are very lucrative for the aerospace industry as they are highly efficient. 

However, LVM3 X, as this mission has been named, will contain a passive cryogenic stage, meaning that the C-25 stage shall not actually fire, in absence on the CE-20, slated to complete development next year.

LVM3-X would climb to an altitude of 125 km. At a velocity of 5.3 km/s, it will inject the Crew Module Atmospheric Re-Entry Experiment, or CARE, into orbit. 

6 liquid-propellant thrusters on the CM will correct any perturbations caused by separation and steer the spacecraft to ensure correct angle for re-entry into the atmosphere. The thrusters will cease operation at a height of about 80 km.

The main objective of CARE is to test the re-entry systems that will one day power human spaceflight courtesy of ISRO.

At an altitude of about 15 km, with the capsule travelling at 839 km per hour, a 2.5-m diameter pilot parachute will deploy and yank out a 6.5 m drogue parachute to slow the spacecraft to 180 km/h. 

At an altitude of 5-km, three main parachutes would be deployed, each 31-m in diameter. Developed by the Aerial Delivery Research & Development Establishment (ARDE) in Agra, the parachutes are the largest ever made in the country.

The module is expected to splash down in the sea near the Andaman archipelago and will be recovered by the Indian Coast Guard and ISRO personnel. They will locate CARE by tracking its beacon as it tosses into the ocean. 

Whether this will be successful, that's another story.
