Re: The Science-y Stuff Thread

I want a hard drive and a jack inserted into my skull.  Then I could just jack in and upload some mad kung fu skills like in The Matrix.  Granted I wouldn't have the physical conditioning to execute every move properly -- a fact the movie sorely, sorely overlooked -- but it'd still be pretty damn cool. lol

Re: The Science-y Stuff Thread

The Oracle will have to say to you sit down.
To which you'll probably answer no I wanna stay up. lol

Re: The Science-y Stuff Thread

@Lon- you create your own self in the Matrix.  Taming bits and bytes is easier than spending 1000 hours at the dojo.  Remember the line "His neural kinetics are off the chart!"?  All in the mind, my man.

Re: The Science-y Stuff Thread

I'm talking about in the real world, sir monkey, not upon being inserted into the Matrix.  Neo may have been a zen wushu master in the Matrix, but outside of it he wouldn't have been able to do any of that stuff.  Knowledge is useless without the ability to apply it, after all; you could upload a black belt in Tae Kwon Do into Stephen Hawking's brain but ten bucks says he still couldn't perform a spin kick. lol

Good clarification.

Re: The Science-y Stuff Thread

90 lb weakling in real life, the amazing hulk in the Matrix. Matrix good.

LOL the first time you try to the Spiraling Crane Snap Kick you will probably snap your hip tongue

ha... ha ha... ha ha ha ha ha

Re: The Science-y Stuff Thread

"snap your hip"...
Too funny!

Re: The Science-y Stuff Thread

This is what I'm saying!  My big tubby ass would slip a disk trying to pull half that stuff out here in the real world, or at the very least pull a hammie.

Re: The Science-y Stuff Thread

I wish I'd done that back when I was sixteen while showing off for my sister's cute friend instead of what I ACTUALLY did.

Hint: nunchucks and testicles just don't mix. hmm

lol

Actually, they're not totally sure, because it's experiencing some weird EM phenomena, so it may have to go through a transition band for a year or so, maybe.  But it is definitely beyond the heliosphere now.
And there are some idiots claiming it won't be "truly" out of the solar system until it pass the Oort Cloud.

Re: The Science-y Stuff Thread

A few years back one of the nurses at the rehab center where I worked brought in a DVD for the patients to watch, a presentation on the co-existence of science and religion.  It showed all these unbelievably beautiful, fantastical images captured by the Hubble telescope, and the last image, which the presenter stated was at the far-most point of Hubble's ability to capture, was another galaxy with the shape of a cross 1,100 light years wide in the center.

Kinda cool, I thought.

Re: The Science-y Stuff Thread

Hubble RULES!!!

Re: The Science-y Stuff Thread

The monkey said Oort.

Re: The Science-y Stuff Thread

Oort is coolrt.

That's not an astronomy picture. 
It a map of the internet in 2011.

Re: The Science-y Stuff Thread

WOW!!!
This is fantastic!!!

Re: The Science-y Stuff Thread

So that's what the matrix looks like. They had it wrong in the movie being all vertical lines of 1's and 0's. .. and green.

Re: The Science-y Stuff Thread

There nothing as beautiful as Orion in the known universe.

Woah!!!
