Suddenly, Canada withdrawing from the Kyoto Protocol makes sense. But hey, more candy for us! :D

Hey! As a kid growing up in Manila, we dealt with rolling blackouts by using one of those generators to keep the lights running! (And yes, we had it indoors. It was not pleasant.)

Should have brought in a chunk of natural uranium instead! That's what those Canadian reactors are for!

Nah. The smallest reactor designs available are about the size of a hot tub.

Hahaha oh engineers.
So often overthinking things.

I was dating one once and he was pondering a design.
"Ugh, I need something that compresses easily on one axis, but resists compression on other axises, and retains it's shape, in a cylinder."

"You mean a spring?"

He didn't talk to me for an hour after that.

Might have been more fun if he'd then asked you to describe the shape of one - without using your hands...

If you think that's easy, just try it!

Oh that's hilarious! I wish I could have seen his face is those moments... I'm sure it was priceless!

I recently saw a picture of a gingerbread AT-AT (from Star Wars, for those of you wondering). My first thought while reading this was... "Omg... they could make it MOVE!!!"
