Mintruth has already flagged the video as offensive and disabled most features. No doubt the NAZIs at youtube will find it intensively offensive.
Personally find it humorous.

Yes, it does look like a "true believer" little Nazi calling for us to be disarmed.

Re: Crime and Punishment: Oklahoma (& Texas) style!

In sane courts with a competent prosecutor, jurors are given the option of finding guilty lesser included crimes from the primary charge. Such as finding guilty for second degree murder when the defendant is charged with first degree but the element of premeditation is unproven.

Re: Skynet is coming.

... crossing the street outside of a crosswalk ...

If you're requiring the driver (or bot) to make a spot check to not hit you when you're crossing the street, you're doing it wrong.

... Though this incident does illustrate a bug in the system that it didn't avoid the obstruction in the car's path.

Re: Crime and Punishment: Oklahoma (& Texas) style!

Trying to disarm the common citizen is a Very Bad Idea. - As Diogenes says, you can't prevent criminals from obtaining weapons. You can make it more difficult by prohibiting convicted criminals from having them, but criminals are well known for doing what the law forbids. - Cops can't protect you in...

Re: Crime and Punishment: Oklahoma (& Texas) style!

- Often in the real world a "first responder" is a private citizen who happens to be present when something happens. - I take a generally very dim view on exempting police from the law the rest of us are expected to follow. On those 2 points, "gun free zones" can get in the way o...

Re: SpaceX News

Another SpaceX booster "failure" :mrgreen:
This rocket was meant to test very high retrothrust landing in water so it didn’t hurt the droneship, but amazingly it has survived

If that's one of the "drones", whoever did it probably bought the high tech parts online.

Re: Mach effect tuning fork experiment

A tuning fork has a resonant frequency dependent on mechanical stiffness (which may be impacted measurably by temperature), and mass. In the experiment I'm thinking of that mass would include the "transient mass" device under test. The tuning fork itself would be driven by a well known tun...

Re: Mach effect tuning fork experiment

I'm thinking it'll be much easier to adjust the electric signal to the capacitor than deal with moving the capacitor. Self resonance of the capacitor plus feed line would be a much higher frequency than the tuning fork anyway. Running the capacitor off mechanical resonant frequency to measure any ef...

Re: Mach effect tuning fork experiment

I'm thinking a tuning fork would be an effective way to observe small shifts in mass. Power the "active mass" in phase lock with the tuning fork. If the Woodward effect is real there should be a shift in frequency as the "active mass" is turned on and off, or shifted in phase rel...

Re: Skynet is coming.

Chess has finite and well defined rules. A computer outdoing the grand masters was inevitable. When computers can outperform humans on not so well defined tasks it may be time to worry.

A sphere would be equilibrium under gravity or surface tension. Add rotation and other shapes may be favored.
