  1. Since the site was reorganized to make it more friendly to mobile users I find it really annoying that a lot of functionality seems to involve hovering over a button or icon. I can’t hover on my iPad, so how am I supposed to access that functionality?
  2. I agree with your strong disagreement. No one can give consent except the woman, and she clearly did not. - Dan G
  3. Maybe, time will tell. Now it looks like they are just swapping the temperature problem for a pressure problem. I’m an engineer, so I immediately think about how something can work in the real world. If the underlying physics require a pressire measured in the millions of psi, it is not a practical application. - Dan G
  4. I’m fun at parties. I keep it cool and don’t let the pressure get to me. - Dan G
  5. Maintaining pressure at that level is easy for very small scale lab applications. For practical applications it will be just as difficult and maintaining temperature, and much for of a safety concern. Still neat, but not a great leap toward practical applications, IMO. - Dan G
  6. Some women want that, some don’t. Treat women like individual human beings and you might realize that. - Dan G
  7. Florida man claims he was cleaning his nunchucks when they suddenly went off - Dan G
  8. I don't reply to him. I did feel the need to add my voice to the growing number of people who refuse to engage him. I guess I could have done that in a more productive manner. - Dan G
  9. Yes, meat eaters are almost as persecuted as Christians. Hold on, poor fella, you can withstand the storm as 5% of the population forces their will on you. - Dan G
  10. The other cost is what the DZ does when someone doesn't check in. Now they have to devote resources to finding that person. If the person can't be found right away, they have to devote even more resources, up to and including shutting down operations and calling the authorities. 99.9% of the time it will be someone forgot to check in and left the DZ. Years ago I was on the verge of shutting down a large boogie at my DZ because we couldn't find a wingsuiter who landed off. My buddy and I spent about an hour walking around the area where we believed he landed. We had one of the planes fly over looking, too. Turns out he walked back, threw his gear in his car, and went to lunch. His cell phone battery had died so we couldn't call him, either. - Dan G
  11. Are you claiming to be some sort of military jumper now? This oughta be good. - Dan G
  12. The problem is the lack of legal process. Unless you're a billionaire, a scientist, or fucking a billionaire there is almost no way to immigrate legally. - Dan G
  13. Referencing one manufactured crisis (no tolerance detentions) to justify another manufactured crisis (closing the border to asylum seekers) is disingenuous. - Dan G
