    You will find that a mechanical engineers greatest tool is his ability to use all of the disciplines equally well to solve the problems or in order ot know at least a cursory knowledge of all disciplines to get answers to the problems encountered. Personally, I use it maybe a few times a month, I find it surprising how many disciplines of engineering I use every day. recently, I have been working mostly with electrical and thermo stuff "Powerplant comissioning" other times it is aero thermo and mostly dynamics "Vibration/rotordynamic analysis" Be a sponge grasp the most basic concepts.

    Additionally, in the world we live in all but the most specific situations can have a very few basic Principals thrown at them, and you can find a satisfactory answer. Linearity, and conservation of energy are your friends.

    I feel that sometimes people look towards engineering as something near omniscience, but they fail to realize that nobody out there really has a fucking clue.

    I hope this helps

    I've yet to hear anyone on the left claim that all of the opposition to Obama is based in racism. Even Carter only said "overwhelming portion"

    I would say that race and/or ignorance are the main causes of opposition. The vast vast majority of teabaggers, when interviewed, don't even know basic facts about what they are yelling about, like what is socialism, or that previous presidents had czars, etc etc etc etc.

    And socialism? Pleaassse. We just paid a shitload of money to the financial industry, and we didn't even put the tiniest of regulations or government control on them. Fuck, we could've used some socialism/govt-regulation there.

    And his public option plan is in fact the CONSERVATIVE solution to health care. It is a plan based on increasing the level of competition. The fact that the public option is made to seem a far left idea just shows how idiotic the political system in this country has become.

    I'm a vegetarian too (more like 97% vegan, 2% occasional cheese made from farm-raised, humanely treated animals, and 1% sushi), for many reasons (ethical, health, don't like meat anyway, etc.) - but I can't watch those movies myself - they are very, very disturbing to me and I feel awful for weeks or months later.

    I've seen a couple people-related things online that still haunt me (burning 'witches' in africa, chechen soldier murder, etc.) - but a documentary of animal cruelty (what the majority of the world's population considers 'okay' or simply ignores) was the worst - that will bother and upset me until the day I die.

    I am absolutely not a militant vegan - I really don't give a damn what people eat - I'm not entirely sure why what I choose not to eat is so interesting to others. Fuck 'em all anyway.

    Especially the Koreans - or at least the ones who feel empowered or especially virile after eating meat from animals that have been tortured to death. That kind of thing makes me lose faith in humanity.

    GGW is still funny, and i am a girl. well, woman, i guess.... those girls just don't understand what's going on. all it ever did for me was scream naivete.

    teach your daughter what it means to have self-respect, and you never need worry about her ending up like that. also if her mother has some sense and you treat her like a person first, a girl second, that will help a lot. i have a 1 1/2 year old son, and my goal has always been to raise one less dickhead into the world. party with wild chicks? sure. pay money for a video of someone else partying with wild chicks? lame!

    base 10 is actually quite common. The decibel system is base 10, and chemists use it as well. As you mentioned in CS they use base 2, math/physics base e. Other fields where they want a logarithmic scale because it has to encompass many orders of magnitude, but it doesn't necessarily have any absolute physical meaning (ie decibels for sound/gain of amplifier) use base 10.

    PS. I like how in a post about trolling for anonymous sex online a discussion of number bases is included in the comments. If I were going to use a logarithmic hotness scale I would make it base 2, because hotness doesn't have a high enough dynamic range to justify 10. Even 2 is pushing it; a 10 would be 1000x hotter than a 1. What does that even mean?

    The guy was in his 40s man. Just shut the fuck up. If he was in his early 20s[even then that's a questionable gap], and if she looked like jailbait, and if he didn't give a minor booze and drugs, or at least be equally high as she was, then I think reddit may look at this issue differently. But the facts remain, he was an old man compared to her, knew she was barely a teenager, supplied drugs to loosen her up, and then continued even after she said no. As a child in the pre-teen modelling business, she is also far less likely to refuse the desires of someone who could make or break your career.

    Lastly, as far as I've heard, minors only look like jailbait in pictures, they always look like minors in person. I don't even glance at girls <17 because they look like fucking infants, and I'm 20. He deserves to serve time.

    Almost all of my roommates when I studied abroad in England did a bit of dumpster diving. I participated but wasn't the most passionate dumpster digger. I have eaten out of dumpsters in my time, though. I'm also a vegan. I have ethical problems with eating meat/dairy/eggs but I don't mind eating dairy when it would otherwise go to waste. That does not mean I would drink milk out of a dumpster but baked goods get thrown away all the time and otherwise I wouldn't eat such sweets. I don't eat meat under any circumstances (partly for ethical reasons and partly because I have no desire to). Anyway, you can ask me anything about dumpster diving if you like. My flatmates mainly went for bakeries but the cream of the crop was always Pret A Manger. They individually wrap all their delicious sandwiches and baked goods, then place all the leftovers in a separate trash bag at the end of the night. We would show up right after close and get something like 10 pounds of amazing food that would feed our 12 person flat for at least 2 or 3 days. Nobody in the flat objected to eating it, as I recall.

    I'm not biased against rice just because of mass produced American beer. I'm biased against rice because it's shit for making beer. I've had supposedly 'good' Pislners with rice ingredients, and other beers (also supposedly 'good') with rice. And they all suck because they're using an almost tasteless filler as at least a part of their recipe. That's just my taste speaking, but it is what it is.

    I honestly don't want lots of 'complexity' in my beer - at least not of the rice variety. If I want complexity, I'll have a good wine. Beer is all about a good solid flavor. Like an awesome Weissbier or an Oatmeal Stout. I don't need to sit around and ponder the finer points of its flavor because it's right there, accessible and available with little consideration. (I do however like some beers with complexity, but that's not the highest priority in beer for me.)

    Also, about brewing costs - sure, distribution, etc costs tons. But rice is bottom line cheaper than great hops, barley, grain. Therefore to cut costs where they can, I can see someone choosing rice for that reason. Any little extra money is still money. But I'm not buying unless it's a quality beer.

    See i think us kinky types learn to mature quickly, simply because a lot of the community is older than we are, when I was the Sub's (no pun intended) age, and younger I was in aseveral interesting friendships with people 10-20 years older than me (aka twice my age) who helped guide who I was. I think, at that level of a friendship w/e you are doing, it could be golf chat, you mature quickly. Finding an assertive woman who is both experienced and interested in a relative rookie to the scene is hard as well.

    I asked my brother's fiance, a biologist, what she thought and this was her response:

    "Ok. Let's throw out eight papers that are based on selective dendrochronology data that may be faulty. It's a drop in the bucket. How about greenhouse gas concentrations? How about measurements of glaciers melting and the polar ice cap shrinking? How about measurements of sea level rising? How about ice core data for the past? How about ... Read Morepollen data? How about dendrochronology data from other sources? How about the thousands of scientists and hundreds or thousands of other papers cited by the IPCC? There is no controversy here. Sure, you can find a scientist or two who say climate change isn't happening--just like you can find a scientist or two who say evolution is a lie. But it is really not in question."

    The GPL is about keeping software free. Copyright is the mechanism used to keep software non-free. If there is no way to keep software non-free, the GPL has no purpose as a freedom enforcement mechanism.

    Most people hold that arguing with trolls is always pointless, but in fact, trolls offer a good opportunity to counter some common misconceptions that, while not held by the troll in question, are held by some in the community. Additionally, trolls will attempt to be inflammatory rather than sound, so their arguments are trivial to dispel.

    my Father's side: mostly Portugese, with some smatterings of Irish, and Inuit & Cherokee. my great-great-grandfather came to the USA from Portugal sometime in the 1890's. there's some anecdotal evidence that he abandoned his pregnant wife and came here with another woman, but there's no definitive proof.

    my great-grandfather, despite being a lifelong alcoholic, was quite an amazing man. as a young man- very handsome, I might add- he was an accomplished gymnast and swimmer, to the point where he could have gone with the Team USA to the Olympics. he played Saxophone in a jazz band down in L.A. in the 1920's- the band was known as George Soto & The Rainbows. George Soto was the man. he had one daughter, my grandmother, who got pregnant with my father at 15 in 1952. my father rambled through life with women and drugs and motorcycles until he met my mother. he's still pretty much a bum- despite having a job- and tends to dream of and speak of grand things that he would not be able to accomplish if he worked from the beginning of his life to finish.

    The one interesting person on my dad's side is my Great-Uncle, Robert, brother to George. he died when I was about 12. I never realized it when I was younger, but he really was a great man: A WWII veteran with the Navy (operating on a Merchant Marine Vessel), very charitable, very well-spoken, rugged, and liked to tell stories, but never ones about his war days. I actually asked him once about his time in the war, and he never answered. my dad later told me to never ask him that question again. I got the feeling that he lost a lot of friends.

    also, Music runs on my dad's side of the family. George played the Saxophone and could sing, Uncle Robert was reasonably good with the Trumpet, and everyone else- except my grandfather- plays\played the guitar and sang. I play the Piano, the Viola, Electric Bass, Saxophone, and a little bit of Trumpet.

    My mom's side: I only know back to my grand-parents there, and they are British, thoroughly: Scottish, Irish, and Welsh. on this side of the family, a lot of mental disorders are common, including Bipolar Disorder, Schizophrenia, and apparently anti-social personality types, if indicated by my maternal Grandfather.

    I prefer not to say the name, but my Grandfather was basically a serial killer. he had two operating modes: "hunting accidents" and "bar-room fights." that's how he would claim his victims. my mom only knows of one incident, but my Uncle, Richard, claims to have seen him come home covered in blood many times. ironically enough, he died in a bar-room brawl some time in the 1970's. he was knocked out and he hit his head on the corner of the bar counter, and died of trauma to the temporal lobe. he left my maternal grandmother with thousands of dollars in gambling and bar debt.

    and then there's me: I have almost-genius-level intelligence (IQ 122), not anti-social, and from photos, I have similiar facial features to my jazzy-jivvy great-grandfather. I also have Chronic Bipolar disorder, and for a while, it consumed me, but I've had it under control (somewhat- I still feel like utter shit some days for no reason) for the last 3 years.

    that's quite likely all of it.

    oh wait: famous relatives: maternally, I'm tangently related to Abraham Lincoln, and I'm a direct descendant of Martha Washington. unlike the former, the latter, however, can be proved.. the evidence was just buried with a relative because another relative's husband wanted it for gambling money.

    -Wall is only about half the warnings, despite the name.

    At one point in grad school, I sat down with the gcc manual, read the description of every warning, and turned on those that applied to my coding style. I then compiled my thesis code; I had to turn some of the back off because the standard headers would trigger them.

    I highly recommend it. It might seem like it would take a while, because there are so many of them. But its only a couple hours, and you'll make that back the first time it catches some subtle bug that would have taken you all afternoon to track down.

    Person A is a smoker. He lives to 75. He lives the first 70 years of his life reasonably free of medical issues. But starting at 70, his health deteriorates and he costs the health system 150k per year, until his death at 75. Total cost to the health system: 750k.

    Person B is a non-smoker. She lives to 85. For the first 70 years of her life, her health costs are similar to person A. However, for the years between 70 and 83, her costs don't increase substantially over the previous years. Starting at 83, her health deteriorates, and she costs 150k until her death at 85. Total cost: 300k.

    Your argument rests on the fallacy that health care costs are the same for smokers vs. non-smokers for each year of their lives, regardless of their overall health and well being.

    Edit: Thought better of making a personal attack.

    sorry for the late reply, ive been very busy with university starting, and i had good feelings and opinions so i figured being in the 'depression reddit' would just bring me back down and i wanted not to feel like that.

    now im just confronting it.

    foods i like:

    *chicken (roasted,and in some variations, fried too. not spicy though)

    *Beef (beef joint is nice, beef in beefburgers is nice as just that, no added spices or anything)

    *pork (basic pork off of a joint is ok, anything other than that is a no go)

    *turkey is ok

    *potatoes (fried, baked and new potatoes are nice as they are, no spices or marinades

    *snacks (crisps, "some" chocolate bars. no jelly based sweets as i find them a horrid thing to eat)

    this is kinda hard to write down everything i eat.. as i honestly cant think or remember.. but im sure i got the major amount down.

    p.s. as a side note... since ive been commuting to university, my eating has taken a turn for the worse.. i dont know what to do about it.

    ive gone from perhaps 2 meals a day, to one... due to a constant bloated feeling, and a nauseating feeling. :( im doing a LOT of exercise each day as well, so i shouldnt be feeling bloated because my immune system is working faster than a person not exercising.

    ideas?

    Python isn't necessarily a language trend in the Windows world. IronPython and Cygwin aside, the trend on the MS platform is .Net and its associated languages (read C#). As for being blissfully ignorant of niche (but useful) languages like ruby, haskell and friends...what's the point? Each one is generally available in some form or another on the platform already (ruby = IronRuby, Haskell...erm...maybe F# (purely from a functional perspective, not a one to one match obviously) Erlang = Axium, etc) and none of these are ready for prime time (F# aside). **The** language trend in the MS world is C#. Period. And that's fine for that platform. For you to argue that this guy isn't a *decent* developer because he doesn't follow topics that you follow isn't helpful.

    If the guy's been using VB for fifteen years it's because it works. If he can bang out a solution to a problem in a reasonable amount of time then there's likely no need to pick up an entirely new language unless it offers an additional benefit to the task at hand...this guy's on a MS stack so I can't image what Python would have to immediately offer. Especially in an "enterprise" environment where overpriced MS support is often the rule.

    I'll take quality over quantity any day, thanks. I had a Toshiba Satellite A100 SK900E that had a failed DVD drive within a month of buying it new. A year later, I bought a used 12" PowerBook G4 1.5, and a day later, the Toshiba puked its guts out.

    The Toshiba had an extended warranty, so I was able to have it repaired for free, but even that took 2 months. They ended up replacing the motherboard, the heat sink, the fan, the CPU, the graphics card and something else I can't remember.

    Where I went to school, they specced laptops. You had a choice between the A100, a lower SKU, and a tablet Toshiba PC, or a MacBook Pro running boot camp. Most people wound up getting a Toshiba because they were about 1000$ cheaper, but almost everyone I know who had one (there were 85 of us in the class; at least 50 of us had a Toshiba) had a similar experience to mine.

    We all have MacBooks or MacBook Pros now.

    I can't really say past the last 15 yrs or so, but there's not some big recent change that's a big deal to me. It has gotten a bit worse over the years but hasn't really changed all that much in my time.

    I've not seen the Penn and Teller episode, I should though, it sounds interesting. And YES the Mormon Church is in large part responsible. Here's why:

    The Mormons use the Boy Scouts as their youth program for boys (e.g. in place of Sunday School, more or less). Nationwide, something like half of units are in LDS churches. These units are supposed to not discriminate on the basis of religion and may not proselytize on Boy Scout outings or at official meetings. As you might imagine, this is very frequent, and non-Mormon scouts at Mormon troops have been harassed big-time. BSA has, on at least three occasions I'm aware of, settled with a big settlement and a non-disclosure clause after over-zealous Mormons find a non-Mormon Scout and virtually kidnap him to try and make him convert.

    The LDS Church is the main reason BSA had a militantly anti-atheist stance, militant enough that both the Unitarian and Tibetan Buddhist religions were officially de-recognized by the BSA because their religious badges did not officially require theism.

    The LDS Church is the main reason the Boy Scouts have not gone co-ed. Virtually all non-Mormons want co-ed Scouting, in my experience. Most countries worldwide do it, and it works very well. (My understanding is that the Girl Scouts are a joke, so they are mostly in support of a merger too)

    Because the Mormons sponsor so many troops, BSA isn't willing to piss them off. So they get to do whatever they want. I have it on good authority that the LDS Church has a Scouting program ready to go, and could launch it within hours of a schism. (i.e. webpages already exist for this theoretical program) But the BSA is beholden to them, so they piggyback off the popularity and respect of the BSA.

    Finally, since for most Mormon Scouts, Scouting is little more than Sunday School, and all Mormons have to join (well, not "have to"), most of them are pushed all the way through and come out the other end Eagle Scouts despite having had no more motivation or competence than anyone in a different church's Sunday School. This devalues the Eagle Scout rank for everyone else.

    To anyone here who is intact and considering getting circumcised due to phimosis:

    I would think REALLY hard about it. I was circumcised as an infant, and if I could have any wish granted it would honestly be to have a foreskin. I know it's a bit different getting cut as an adult, but since the foreskin is fused to the glans when one is young, infant circumcision rips the two apart, creating permanent scarring of the remaining inner skin and glans.

    For phimosis, there are creams you can try, stretching exercises available on the web, etc. I know it may be frustrating, but not nearly as frustrating to regrow what remains of your foreskin! If those didn't work, I would get a very loose circumcision so that you have as much foreskin remaining as possible. You could also try talking to a doctor and saying that you really don't want to be circumcised. Doctors in America for whatever bullshit reason always want to circumcise.

    I'm 22 and my penis has very little sensitivity. My body scars VERY easily (any cut I get anywhere on my body scars), which explains my lack of sensitivity.

    A few have mentioned when pulling their foreskin back and letting the glans rub against the underwear it is very sensitive, almost painful. I barely feel anything when my glans rubs against my underwear. If you get cut, you eventually will feel much less. Here's why: the inner foreskin and glans do not actually have skin, it's more of a mucous membrane. They are meant to be covered, just like the tissues in your mouth and the underside of your eyelids. When the glans and inner foreskin are exposed for a long period of time, "keratinization" occurs, in which a layer of keratin covers both surfaces, dulling sensation. My glans and inner skin look very weathered, nothing like the pictures of intact guys I have seen. Since my glans was scarred, the end of my urethra was altered, so when I pee, it often doesn't come out straight. You probably wouldn't experience this, but the glans and remaining foreskin are pitted with scars.

    The most sensitive part of my penis is the underside, where I have about ~40% of my frenulum remaining. I cannot begin to imagine how enjoyable sex would be if my penis were not scarred, dried out, and missing nerves. About ~50% of nerve endings are lost in most circumcisions, and that's not accounting for the keratinization that dulls sensations even more.

    It pisses me off to no end that I was denied my right to have a normal human body. Saddening fact: in the mid 90s, the US voted (not sure if it was the senate, congress, etc.) that it was illegal to alter the genitals of infant girls. There is no law protecting infant boys!!! And throughout my life in the US I've heard of non-profit groups trying to inform the public about female circumcision in Africa, when routine male genital mutilation is occurring at a much higher rate right here!

    Like I said, not all of this would apply to your situation, but I just thought I'd let you know how depressing my life has become due to circumcision. I have sunk into a deep depression that no one can help me out of: a cut male counselor wouldn't see anything wrong with it, and I'd just be too angry and jealous talking to an intact man or a woman. The only thing I can do is attempt to restore my foreskin, which I've been trying to do for 4 years and have made less progress than most do in 6 months, again most likely due to my body's shitty healing in the skin stretching process. And there is no medical consensus on what the best way to restore is, so there's a bunch of guesswork. If I stretch just a *little* too much or too long, I get sores that take about a week to heal, impeding my progress further. And to think, I have to put forth all this effort to attain less than what every woman or intact man has (~80% of the world's males are intact)!

    My penis is larger than average, but I would much rather have a smaller, fully-functional and sensitive penis. I would do anything to at the very least be in your situation. Seriously, consider yourself lucky.

    the year is irrelevant. an EK is a FINE platform, especially if you pick up some jdm CTR/ITR suspension goodies . alot of which will bolt on. Or the rest of the after market.. *teins**cough*.

    going K is the future, and as for torque in a honda, anything over 300 hp and torque is to much imo, ESPECIALLY if you haven't spent the money to prevent the massive amount of traction loss and torque steer.

    I think a B series with 250hp/185-250flbs torque is a very achievable # and can be had turbo or N/A for about the same money..less torque with n/a obviously, unless you spend some extra cash.

    with a k20a, hytech header, hondata's k-pro, and the exhaust of your choice, *i run t1r* 250hp/220f lb is completely achievable without touching the internals. The technology in that motor and reliability is incredible. imo a k series with the same numbers as a b series will always best it. The way the motor makes its power and its torque curve is amazing. Also the gear ratios/final drive as well as the extra gear is where this motor also shines. If i ever go K it will be a k20a or nothing, MAYBE a K20 from a USMD rsx, with itr internals and a cusco 5.1 final drive.

    as for the WRX its the go to car for all the navy douches in my area, and most of them buy them and then rev them all about town, its sad, and the few that do fix them up that are not goobers are always elitist douches.

    and the satellite temperature measurements do not show global warming, and the atmospheric heat signatures do not. from previous link.

    > There is no hotspot in the tropics at 10 km up, so now we know that greenhouse warming is not the (main) cause of global warming — so we know that carbon emissions are not the (main) cause of global warming.

    > But the modelers assumed (bad assumption #2) that increased warming would cause more rainfall, which would cause more clouds high up in the atmosphere — and since high clouds have a net warming effect, this would cause more warming and thus more rainfall and so on. It is this positive feedback that causes the UN climate models to predict a temperature rise due to a rise in CO2 to 560ppm to be 2.5C - 4.7C (of which we have already experienced 0.7C).

    You can't generalize of course but you can say, in certain states you're more likely to encounter certain stereotypes compared to others. I've met people from North Carolina who were into more newage stuff than my Californian neighbors. But even this person lamented how he was in the minority. It also depends on the city, if you're in central California you're more likely to see too many churches, but most of the population is fortunately on the coast. I've known foreign exchange students in Texas where a few lucked out with their cool host families, others weren't so lucky in terms of being with a fundamentalist family. In my city, you're more likely to smoke out with your host family which can be problematic.

    I lived in France, studied and worked there, and this sort of religiousness / fanaticism was never a problem. My French host family lived in the projects, there was a single mother, 2 kids and her gay friend. The main problems were really poor families who didnt want to feed the student. My French ex girlfriend stayed with an American host family and the daughter berated her for the nude woman on the currency.

    So there's a cultural gap here between America and Europe which is more pronounced in the south but of course it's on a city-by-city, family-by-family basis.

    By parallel I mean square to the camera. Imagine drawing a line between the hips. For the bride in #3, it's parallel to the film plane. Same with her shoulders. This generally bad because it lends a flat look to the portrait and is particularly unflattering to overweight folks.

    You usually want people standing at an angle to you. A classic pose for a full-length portrait is that the person puts one foot in front of the other so that the front foot is pointed at the camera and the back is at a 45-degree angle. Most of the person's weight is on the back foot. The hips are then pointing nearly straight at the camera. The shoulders are turned at a 45-degree angle with the head pointed nearly straight at the camera. Arms are slightly bent at the elbow. This is likely what you're doing in #6. Turning the person like this also provides a slimming effect.

    Since it's a topic of conversation, once again........here's a print screen for you:

    manage your reddit | johndollarfullofcrap

    title e.g., slashdot: news for nerds, stuff that matters

    **we read J$'s so you don't have to**

    You will notice, if you bother to look, that the title has reverted to the do instead of don't.......but as i said before I think the "johndollarfullofcrap" is pretty self explanatory.

    Now you can believe that or not. I do not really care, but it seems to matter to you!.
