CSI!

Recommended Posts

lol...Alix just asked me if I knew about this show. I seemed to remember a thread on it a few months back but I said, "I'm sure by the time I open dz.com, someone would have already started a new thread about it". Two minutes later...:ph34r:

Are you saying skychics don't have cleavage? Have you not seen the boobies thread?



I was wondering if that's what he meant too! :ph34r:

I despise CSI.

Its loosely based on real crime scene techniques, but then blown over the top. The downside is that people think that when their car is broken into, we can go full out TV CSI and pull some DNA out of thin air. Same with finger prints.

DNA tests are exceptionally expensive and are only worth a damn when there are known suspects. Most places won't run a DNA test on a crime unless its a major crime (like sexual assault, murder, aggravated assault, etc)

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Quote

"How do you breath in freefall?"
-- Through genetically developed gills.

This falls into the realm of urban folklore. One CAN breathe in freefall - if
it were necessary. However, due to the high speed of terminal freefall (and
much higher speeds in vertical freefall dives), the jumper's body is exposed to
O2 molecules at a much higher rate than someone walking around on the ground.
The body is able to absorb the necessary O2 through the skin. This is why
jumpers flap their cheeks in freefall, it presents a larger surface area to the
airstream for oxygen osmosis. Once under canopy, the jumper resumes breathing
normally.

This is also why jumpers do not jump on cloudy days or when they might risk
going through clouds. The moisture in the clouds can condense on their exposed
skin surfaces preventing the absorption of the necessary oxygen resulting in
suffocation. AADs are recommended for jumpers in climates where weather is a
factor.
