        Obviously the really short giant. A giant midget would just be a ball, and a really short giant is still a giant.

        I was watching a video on how a samurai vs knight is a stupid debate. A guy on youtube, skallagrim, makes great vids on historical weapons and such. This was one of the comments, cracked me up. :)

      I made a second accound here a year ago, thinking about "starting fresh". Decided to own up my past mistakes instead. Account was never used

      Mosquitoes are the ungodly joint fabrication of every evil deity and malevolent force of creation in the multiverse.

        don't like them, but The male mosquito does not feed on blood. Instead, he survives on the sugars present in plant nectar. As a byproduct of his actions, he helps to pollinate those same plants. In subarctic climates such as northern EUA,Canada and Russia, mosquitoes play a major role in plant pollination.

        @purr1n "Mosquitoes I kill without hesitation."

        I was always like that. Picking up a larva, searching for the food plant it fell off. India turned me into a mass murderer. Mosquitoes. And sometimes ants.

        (But I don't kill cockroaches. I don't see any harm in them, as long as they are outside. So I scoop them up and put them there)

        I prefer the zeroes to the original Transparent One. The Transparent One Encore took what they learned from the Transparent Zeroes and added it back the bigger speaker.

        All you said's true. I meant biologically inert in a sense that it's in its metallic form, not ionic in a liquid. You can eat it drink it whatever. Mercury... has a vapour pressure. And while small, it's very toxic. So ... not a good idea.

        Also, yes, aqua regia is a nitric/cloric combo, but 2l of bleach and 2l of hcl for a grand total of 2 bucks works exacly the same if you can deal with clorine gas. Or inhale it all, like me!

        So, if I was to *drink* the bleach, and then eat the gold, that wouldn't be so good, as it would be meeting bleach plus HCl (not H2SO4; thanks) in my stomach.

        I'll try to remember not to do that!

        Interesting. Not that I'm planning to do this, but always interested in the howto of things. Off to google/ youtube to find out!

        (I imagine you *don't* use mercury as a solvent, and then drive off the mercury in your kitchen oven. Not if you want to stay alive and out of prison!)

        HCl, air bubbler and bleach. All the water soluble metal waste precipitates with lye into a paste which can be superheated to form metals again, or delivered to the waste disposal. Gold percipitates with alkali metadisulfides (wine protection chemicals). No need for mercury at all. :)

        Historically, amalgam was used in the gold 'plating' of silver salt pots. I think the process killed plenty of workers!

        I just noticed your profession. As a scientist, I guess you'll stay safe with the chemicals --- and use the right eye protection! :)

        Are you implying that a big muscular black man can't be a better white little girl than a white little girl? Sounds bigoted... (emma would be amazing adult Ciri, but they are looking for a 12yo kid, I was thinking hitgirl)

        Didn't know that. That's also really silly, as if there aren't plenty enough capable asian beatiful actressess to pick from. Also, for the role of Ciri, the casting call specifically said they don't want white actresses. So much for picking the best actor for the role.

        I'm a huge fan of surround for movies and casual gaming. When it comes to competitive multiplayer games, where you need those sound cues to be precise, headphones are much better IMO.

        "A loudspeaker is to me not a piece of furniture but a transducer. As such it has an electrical input and produces an acoustic sound-field as output. I do not sell loudspeakers but offer construction plans for DIY duplication. I like to share what has given me satisfaction and enjoyment." Imagine the world if more people shared this sentiment.

        I use arta and rew to do all my work, rew generates dsp filters too. Amazing stuff.
        Yep, subs are my design but Linkwitz transformed, will be used as omni's for 15-35 Hz, the rest is lx521.4, with aditional dsp smoothing. :)

        Actually I'm not sure if I'm gonna Linkwitz transform them or mod them into ported, cause at those frequencies, centered around 20 Hz, it's just lfe basically.
