Now that is funny.

I was switching back and forth between FB games and Discovery Channel and finally got to the EGRES (or whatever) check list and I was bothered that old man rushed thought the visor thing and had to back track and make sure the red light was on. They almost canceled the whole jump over the visor.

Then the whole wind direction blew me away. :/

They had to keep going back to the heating elements in the visor over the last half-hour or so - there'd been recurring issues.

Medicine or law.

In other news, this is the finding Scifi fans have been waiting for since the discovery of the first exoplanet. Yes, it's more like Hell than Earth, but still, a planetary system only 4.3 light years from us is reason for most astronomers to party.

Yes, you can make money in science, mostly because if you're good at it, you can do things that seem like magic to 99% of the workforce.

Which is both good for your job security, and very sad.

Geology is a decent choice - lots of opportunity there.

Geologists, chemical engineers, etc.

Word is that, over the past two or three years, they're starting to hire more and more young people after having not for so long coz the current workforce is really old.

My buddy's a year off from graduating and he's got a $75,000 salary already at a company that designs and builds natural gas recovery plants. He starts during the Summer building valves in a team.

So yeah. There's moneys if you're willing to work for it - it's rather competitive.

if I'm reading my school info correct I can double major really easily so i was thinking of picking up a science degree alongside philosophy so i don't feel worthless and have decent job potential. One of my teachers told me with a bachelors in geology you can get jobs easy, so I was thinking of going for that. Science just sounds fun.

is it hard to be good at science?

It really depends a lot on your aptitude (not attitude). You need to be able to think scientifically, critically question assumptions and design experiments to test assumptions. It also helps if you can spot bullshit.

Only you can be sure if it's something you can do, or if it's something you'd like to do.

Kilogram is getting fat.

http://news.yahoo.com/kilogram-gaine...005533827.html

Quote:
The international standard, a cylinder-shaped hunk of metal that defines the fundamental unit of mass, has gained tens of micrograms in weight from surface contamination, according to a new study.

As a result, each country that has one of these standard masses has a slightly different definition of the kilogram, which could throw off science experiments that require very precise weight measurements or international trade in highly restricted items that are restricted by weight, such as radioactive materials.

The LA Kings Blackout Night is in honor of Raytheon’s spectacular images of Earth, deemed the “Black Marble.” Raytheon’s Visible Infrared Imaging Sensor (VIIRS), aboard NASA’s Suomi-NPP satellite, has been capturing never-before seen views of our planet. This innovation in imaging produced the 2012 Black Marble, a unique view of Earth at night.

Hey Flagg, I got a question for you. If I soak my Brita water filter in vinager, does it clean all the charcoal? Or does a lot of tap water crap not die from vinager?

I have not heard of using vinegar to clean out water filters in this fashion, and I don't expect it to work particularly well. Charcoal is a superior adsorbent, which means that is will be a devil to clean. I expect that vinegar is not nearly as strong a reducing agent as would be required - you probably need a much stronger acid.

My advice - if you can, buy a replacement filter. It's both cheaper and safer.

Yeah, I expected as much. I know from survival shows that charcoal is pourus and collects muck in the pours to help clean the water, but I didn't even think of it as a sponge. Can't boil it because it's encased in plastic.

Thank you Mr. Chem!
