BYU and BYU-I need added to the list for its “honor code.” You will be expelled, no questions asked, if you are LDS and your religious views change. With possible transcripts being withheld. Then again, they all knew what they were signing up for, tithing subsidized tuition and all. Go Aggies!!

I grew up with the 1 ton square bales. Never understood why anyone would ever want round bales. Can’t stack for garbage, etc. I lost a cousin when their 3 wheeled OLD school tractor tipped over and pinned him. They were a mile from home and his father ran all the way to get the Handyman jack. Farming can be very lethal. I know…

Probably a better investment then a humanities degree with student loans! ;)

The lottery is a tax on people who can’t do math. So I joined a work pool and through ten dollars away. LOL! If one did win…

While I agree this is a fantastic milestone achievement, there is a problem with this test. We blasted the chinese for their reckless abandon to space craft and astronauts by intercepting a satellite. There was a program on Science Channel recently discussing the escalating problem of space junk. Some scientist in the 70s theorized how it would snowball out of control and eventually mankind would be denied access to space in 150 years. The show featured ranking members of NASA, Air Force, and the science community. His math and theory have yet to be disproved. Unless we figure out a way to eliminate the debris that makes railgun munitions look like my “girly” fast pitch, STOP BLOWING SH!@ UP IN SPACE!!!!!!!
I was wondering whether anyone had considered the risk of adding even more SPACE JUNK up there. The article mentioned 60 miles up as a goal, didn't say how high this test was. Is that low enough to have the debris fall back to earth quickly? However in any explosion, fragments would disperse in all directions, including Up. So this is risky to do explosive tests so high.
What you're thinking about is debris in orbit, not in "space." While 62 miles up is considered the boundary of space, this is sort of ceremonial. In order to get into orbit, an object needs to be 100+ miles up (clear of enough atmosphere to keep it from falling back quickly). And it needs to be going more than 17,000 miles per hour, otherwise it simply drops back into the atmosphere. If moving quickly, it likely burns up.
So this sort of explosion is no threat to the large amount of space debris in orbit.
In the meantime, there are several proposals to remove space debris, although debris at 150 miles or less gets pulled down pretty quickly. To speed this up, sending up sounding rockets with payloads of foam, that expands to giant (multi-hundred-meter) balls of lightweight foam in space, will absorb debris and then fall back into the atmosphere. Even if a chunk penetrates it, the chunk would still be slowed enough to come out of orbit. And the ball stays in space only a short time. It doesn't need to go into orbit, so it's cheap to launch.

in 150 years i bet we fix that problem probably some sort of shielding...

I remember that episode. Love The Simpsons. Every episode usually ends on a good, wholesome life lesson or moral. It just may not happen till the last 30 seconds LOL! The older episodes are much funnier though.

there is a difference. Try it instead of hypothesizing.

Forget the diagram OldOllie and just try it. IT WORKS! though you likely don’t need to worry since your old and get around on a “rascal.”

This reminded me of a large spider we found in the bananas when I worked at walmart. After reading this article i started searching for an image that resembled said spider and this article at different sites pops up with the headline that the wandering spider also gives 4 hour banana elongations! So if the bite doesn’t kill you in 2 hours, I guess you get another 2 hours to party. LOL!

Now that was freaking hilarious. the fine print at the end is the cherry on top!
I was ROFLMAO...read your "fine print" note...went back and thought I'd waste my time.
Then I DIED LAUGHING!!
would have been funnier if "William Devan" was doing it..
Hillary lives in a world where computers never run slow and everything is replaced at the first sign of trouble. To her, PC Matic sounds more like Political Correctness as practiced by students at Liberal Universities. So the name DC Matic wouldn't make sense.

Precision tools of war are always required when one brown group launches rockets on another brown-ish group. Since when are the Israelis ethnically white? Cover up, your education is showing.

The time it took to text she could have called 911 5 times. Terrible crime against a child. 911 will automatically connect to the GPS and if she struggles long enough the phone likely would not be discovered in time for police to be dispatched. Please educate your children. Disable the lock screen on their phone. Have 911 set as a favorite or speed dial. These things can mean the difference in time. Education prevents them from TEXTING their BF/GF instead of contacting police.
The thing is, if a kidnapper was near her or she was in their car etc, if she called the cops then the kidnapper might have easily heard her and taken and broken her phone.. I think that was probably it

Since when is 137 db safe??? Seriously blaze. 80 is the limit I believe. At least my employer uses that as the threshold limit for mandatory earplug use. 137 is like a 747 turbofan next to your ear! Decibel scale is logarithmic, meaning every 3 db increase DOUBLES the loudness! Please correct the article!
The information comes from SilencerCo's website. Its not just the level of sound, its the amount of time you're exposed to it. For a continuous 8 hours of exposure, 85 dB is the limit according to OSHA, so your employer is erring on the safe side.
That said, I don't think I'd want to experience 137 dB without earplugs.
dB AT MUZZLE:
12" - 137.9
10" - 141.1
8" - 145.1
6" - 149.2
It really depends on the length of exposure.
From the OSHA site here:
the guidance limit for 'impulse noise' is 140db.
The 85 db OSHA limit is continuous noise for 8 hours a day.

Brigott and lordjosh’s god is a magician, who follows no laws of physics. If material collapsed on itself fast enough to form the solar system in 6000 years, then it would have been moving to fast to form a solar system. My god is a god of laws, not chaos and magic with spontaneous poofs of creation. A day is not a measure of definitive time. It is a measure of one event to the next. Re-read the creation and you will see the bible says the solar system was formed the same way scientists with physics based models say it was formed. Quit over laying man’s sense of time with god’s.

What’s wrong with Poli-Sci? It was my first with history my second. Useful for law degrees and posh government jobs in D.C.
